Here is my Day 5, of the Maiden frescoes in the Ceylonese citadel of Sigiriya.May 26, 2018 at 2:27 am #19068
Terrific job Rae, I love your result.May 26, 2018 at 2:30 am #19070
Day 6 challenge finished. Thanks for your tips Cassel.May 26, 2018 at 8:40 am #19071MicheleParticipant
I haven’t had a chance to participate yet, but I just looked at the forum and I just say how impressed I am. You have all done beautiful layouts. I love how different your layouts are even though they are based on the same ideas.
~ MicheleMay 26, 2018 at 12:46 pm #19079CristinaParticipant
So many great layouts posted here. That’s the beauty of these challenges, Cassel gives one template or idea and each one makes amazing pages completely different from each other.
I am very late as usual, and today I am posting Day 1. I used techniques from the LAB 8/01 – Plaid4 – (background paper) and from the LAB 8/02 – Shaped Text (title) and Word Frame (photos).
I also used cass-Burnt Edge Paper, doodle (Sheila Reid) stitches (Holly Wolf Scraps) and corkboard texture (Fuzzimo)… all freebies.May 26, 2018 at 1:22 pm #19082
Great results ladies, all are fabulous and very interesting.
Christina, Portugal is one of my favourite places to visit, lovely country and people. I could live there no probs.
Sheila xMay 26, 2018 at 1:55 pm #19083CristinaParticipant
Hi Sheila, we love to go there too, especially when it is cold here. You are not the only one! 🙂 There are many British living in Algarve, and they have their own radio station, pubs and newspaper. These you find for free in the supermarkts at the entrance.May 26, 2018 at 3:07 pm #19085
Here’s my Day 04. I’m behind. I’ve had a death of a dear friend and I am going to Buffalo, NY next weekend for the Memorial Service. It’s been a tough week, it was very sudden.
I did this one of Heidi my cat. She is a doll and if you look at the picture on the right side, you will see the heart on her side. I love that heart! That’s why I adopted her!
DeLorisMay 26, 2018 at 5:11 pm #19086
Thanks Lyn, very much appreciate your comment. I didn’t have any photos so snagged these from the web … making sure there were no copyright laws infringed … as you do!
Love your work Lyn and terrific photos. I have been inspired by all and have dragged out my little digital camera which I purchased about 10 yrs ago. It does take lovely pics but as I was working full time I never seemed to get much of a chance to put it to good use. Maybe now is that time, 🙂May 26, 2018 at 5:15 pm #19087
Lovely work DeLoris and what a delightful cat marking, she was made to love. Very sorry to hear of your friends passing. It is a trial and none of the platitudes give comfort so I will simply wish you well with your healing grief. Hugs and Love……Annie TMay 26, 2018 at 5:58 pm #19088
Thank you Annie. Heidi is a beautiful cat and the minute I saw that heart I knew she was the one for me! Thank you also for your sympathies about my friend. It was just sooo sudden and unexpected. Her children are really struggling. I’ll feel better when I get to New York next week to be with them.
DeLorisMay 26, 2018 at 9:31 pm #19090
Thank you, Annie. I chuckled at your missing photo of and commentary about Izzy the kitty!
Very sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, DeLoris. A good friend of ours also passed away recently and unexpectedly; the memorial service will be next Sunday.
Here’s my Day 6 challenge completed.May 26, 2018 at 11:26 pm #19091
Thank you Rae and I am sorry for your loss as well!
DeLorisMay 27, 2018 at 9:35 am #19095
Hi, Cassel and Lyn Lou, thanks for the help. Some time has passed, but here my creation of day 1May 27, 2018 at 10:10 am #19097Luann IrvinParticipant
Here is my Day 2…I am so far behind, but fortunately this is not a race or I might think I was ahead! Anyway I am having fun, just the resizing is a bit of a headache…May 27, 2018 at 10:32 am #19098CasselKeymaster
@Luann, is it possible that you chose a different format for your double page? It looks wider than a 7200×3600 pixels project. Or is it when you resized that it stretched?May 27, 2018 at 6:03 pm #19117May 27, 2018 at 8:09 pm #19118
Marie-Claire, I like how you’ve done it with one big photograph peeking through the slots, and a panoramic picture as the background/foreground. I’ll try that layout on a future project.
Cassel, I’m grateful to you for the Day 7 information about printing. I don’t have plans to print any of the Double Take pages yet, but was wondering how to print 12 pages of scrapbook photos made earlier this month as a gift for a friend who recently gave me a dollhouse. All the photobook printing companies I’m familiar with have a minimum requirement of 20 pages. But now I see I can purchase a regular 12″x12″ scrapbook, have my individual pages printed and place them in that instead without any modifications. It’s good to know how to add margins for binding areas on future photobook pages; you have answered so many questions I had about that and exactly at the right time. Thank you very much; I really enjoyed this challenge and learned a lot I’ll use again and again!May 27, 2018 at 9:00 pm #19120
CHallenge Day 6
Had a busy day today, but wanted to get this finished, It was one of those projects, that you keep changing till your happy with it, so it took me a while to complete and happy with the finished result.May 27, 2018 at 11:20 pm #19126Marlene LinghamParticipant
This has been a wonderful challenge, many thanks to Cassel for doing it and lots of high fives to everyone who participated and showcased their many inspirational pages. Lyn Lou I love the way you have done the text with the flower border and the colours are beautiful.
My Day 6 is all about a visit to Coober Pedy on the way north in 2016. Australia has many gem fields: opals at Coober Pedy, Andamooka and Lightning Ridge; sapphires in Queensland and diamonds in Western Australia to name just a few. Coober Pedy is also famous for the underground dwellings known as “dugouts” which are surprisingly comfortable, particularly in the summer.
I have no plans to print these pages but thank you Cassel for the information on how to do it, always useful to know. I have learnt lots doing this challenge and look forward to the next one.May 28, 2018 at 2:41 am #19127
Thank you Marlene, this has also given me some other ideas for the next challenge. I love yours too, love the beautiful Opals. I have a friend in Australia and she travels around a lot for her job, she is a chef and works on sheep ranches feeding all the employees. I love hearing the unusual names of places in Australia far more interesting than our place names. So unusual living underground too.May 28, 2018 at 2:59 pm #19151
Rae Bordua, thank you !May 28, 2018 at 5:39 pm #19153
Hi! this is my work out for Day 3<span id=”result_box” class=”short_text” lang=”en” tabindex=”-1″></span>May 28, 2018 at 5:55 pm #19154Marlene LinghamParticipant
That is a lovely page Marie-Claire, beautiful photos of spectacular scenery and the dog is gorgeous!May 28, 2018 at 8:08 pm #19156
Lovely, lovely pages on here.
Here is my day 6. I used a backer from cassel and a brick font by Carol Brooksbank from 1001 fonts.com.
Sheila xMay 28, 2018 at 9:31 pm #19157AprilDawnParticipant
Hello Everyone, just want to say each one of your pages are lovely…. As I registered late for this challenge and then had some Technical Difficulties in trying to post anything in the Forum I have decided to create some pages with Cassel’s tutorials at a future time.
I have enjoyed viewing all of your wonderful projects… so again… to you all… Well Done!
