    Our newest challenge will soon start. Are you in?

    What do you plan to feature in your double-pages project?

    The challenge will start on April 19th, so there is plenty of time for you to find your photos and invite friends to join.

    And this challenge will be FREE for everyone, so spread the word.

    Here is the link again: https://scrapbookcampus.com/promo/double-take-challenge/

    Let us know if when you are registered, and in order to help and inspire others, tell us what you plan on showcasing. Don’t worry, you can always change your mind, but I am sure other participants will love to get ideas.

    Looking forward to working with double pages. I just came home from my granddaughters bridal shower and have about 25 photos to use in a layout, so maybe that will work. We’ll see….

    Like Bonnie, I have participated in this challenge before; every time is an opportunity to do things differently and relearn what I have forgotten. Happy to participate again.

    All I can say is that I endorse what Bonnie and Cristina has already said.  I hope that I can  complete the challenge, as  Spring is certainly under way here.

    I’m looking forward to this challenge and it is a first for me, althought the travel challenge of last year also had the opportunity of double pages. I’m not sure what my subject will be, have to think about that.

    Corrie: I did the vacation challenge last year as my introduction to the Campus. It was a true challenge to post my work because I had to split each page in half to meet the 600px posting requirements. I had not planned the pages that way to start so I had to do a lot of maneuvering. Not sure if that was actually required. What did  you do with the 7200 x 3600 pages? Here’s an example of one of my pages from last year reduced to 600 x 300.

    Hi all 🙂

    I’m joining in too, hope I will manage to keep up with the challenge, stil have to finish the last project of the study group.

    I think this challenge will be about the pets we had over the years, nice way to honour and remember them. We now still have a dog and one cat. (At one time we had 7! cats at the same time 🙂

     

    Nice to “see” familiar faces here, we are almost like family here 🙂

    Hi this is my second big Challenge. My theme is “Finding Beauty”. I love being out in nature, I love trying to capture beautiful moments in photographs. The pictures I have taken over the years. I plan on featuring some of my daughter’s poetry with my pictures.

    Carole, I really like your template for the first page but I don’t think it is available anymore. Off the top of your head, do You know of a similar template out there. If not, no worries, I will put the time into research. Thanks, Laurie

    Carole, I just have a question. I have decided to create my own template. Do my layers need to be Raster or Vector Layers? Thanks, Laurie

    Laurie, the template is available there. I just checked. It does not direct to her blog anymore so she gave me a direct link to download it.

    As for your other question, your layer will need to be a raster. You can create shapes with a vector shape, so the layer will be vector, but you will need to convert it to raster before continueing.

    Laurie, your layers will be raster. When you create masks, the mask layer will open as a raster layer. If you are going to create rectangles or circles using the  rectangle/ellipse tool, they are created as vectors, so you’ll have to promote them to a raster  to change them into  a mask.

    Laurie, I now see Carole pipped me to the post, so to speak, we must have been replying to your question at the same time. 😉

    Ann, I did my pages so I could split them for posting. It was a bit of a challenge because it was also my first one, but I had done the Basic Scrap Course on my one (I wished we had the studygroup then). This is one of the really double ones. See you, I’m almost finished with day 1, but I’ll post it tomorrow; it’s after midnight overhere.

    It looks I’m going to be the first to post day 1 of the Double Take Challenge.  Taking into account that I didn’t need to  create the masks, as I have done  this challenge before.  I did modify the pages to suit the photos.  The cow and now a yearling Moose visit  the trees out back occasionally, I also see them  around and about, they really do cover a lot of ground with their long legs in search of  food.  They stayed for 3 nights and 3 days, when I took these photos, and hundreds more during that time, on the 30th March -1 April.  I didn’t invade their space,  and through their occasional visit, the  mother had grown to tolerate my presence, and appeared to be quite comfortable having me  around.  Always keeping a  large tree between them and myself. It’s common sense to avoid females with calves and yearlings, as well as  bulls in the Autumn rut. We have Willow trees, which they are very partial to. Where we live, they don’t have any predators.  Only humans,  and over the years their numbers have  decreased, yet the conservation officers continue to issue tickets  to hunters, to enable them to  hunt them.  Along with loss of habitat.

    Some of you will have seen these pages, which I  created for the  first Challenge I did in 2018.  Hard to believe it was that long ago. One year I documented the  life cycle of the ladybird, all four stages.  Egg, Larva, pupa, and adult. They are at their most venerable, while they wait for their spots to change colour and harden, which can take up to 2 hrs.  Macro photography.

    Corrie, well done, a beautiful, lively colourful page. I love the addition of the beads, in matching  colours to the photos used.

    Creating a double page wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be.  Using the template that Carole provided in the tutorial sure helped.   The only problem today was for time.  I couldn’t find the right scrap paper to do the squares, so I used plane papers that I made.  The squares seem kind of plain to me.  If I would have had more time, I probably would have made polka dots or stripes or something lol.

     

    The Template I used was from Katie the Scrapbook Lady and the kits I used were called “Easter Time” by Lisa Minor and “All Hopped” by Cutie Pie Scraps.

    My day 1 is still a work in progress. Creating a template is a little harder than I thought it was going to be. My rectangles moved on me! I need to learn how to lock my layers. Corrie I love your colors, Sandra your Easter pics are cute! Sue I love both of your layouts! Someday I am going to see a moose live and in person! I live in the south and when I have gone north we have never seen one! My mother used to send me a stuffed one every year because she knows I like them.

    Corrie, did you say you made both pages to display them, but did you try to upload them separately? You can do it, as long as you upload the page 2 first (the forum inverts them).

    Sue, those pages are so elegant, and showcase a majestic animal. Very well suited!

    Sandra, since you save a copy in .pspimage, you will have many opportunities to tweak it and change the paper or add elements as you go.

    Laurie, to link the layers, select all the layers you want linked together (using the Ctrl key), and then click the Link icon on top of the Layers palette.

    Sandra, you created a fun double page, well done.

    Laurie,  thank you for your kind comment on  my pages. I always appreciate them. It’s  quite rare to see Moose out in the open, they prefer treed and wet marshy areas,  especially  when the weather warms up.  I hope you get to see one in person,  I always feel privileged, and humbled, when they grace me with their presence.

    Carole,  thank you ever so much for your compliment on my pages.   Praise from you  means a great deal to me.  I had to create pages to do these  magnificent animals justice.

    When I was a child, I spent hours looking at my father’s West Point yearbooks and one of the sports he participated in, lacrosse, was one that skipped my generation and I only knew what it was because I had seen pictures of him playing it. Many years later, I was walking around my neighborhood and saw kids with equipment that reminded me of pictures of my father and I asked what game they were playing and it turned out to be be lacrosse.  Now my grandson is playing the same game his greatgrandfather played some 80 years ago.
