We have all lived through those challenging 20 months. Do you have some photos or stories to share about it? Did you experience COVID? Did you help out neighbours or relatives or did you receive help? Did your community do something together to help those who needed it? Can you describe those frontliners who worked tirelessly in COVID units?
It is time to showcase those photos and stories.
Let’s go!January 1, 2022 at 12:30 pm #69436
My granddaughter, Anna, is an SLP (Speech Language Pathologist) on the front lines at her hospital in California. She works with Covid-19 patients who are unable to speak or swallow after having a tube down their throats for weeks on end.

Yay for another SLP!January 2, 2022 at 2:58 pm #69517
I started a COVID album back in March of 2020. I broke it down by month, documenting what was going on in my state and city with statistics for each month. I continued on in 2021 and just yesterday, got set up to continue in 2022. I was an accountant and numbers are my thing as are spreadsheets. I am still documenting daily numbers on the spreadsheet! I have also included pages about other things with photos taken from the internet as well as some of photos taken by me.
Here is a layout from October of 2020 about masks.January 2, 2022 at 3:11 pm #69519
I guess you will end up with a complete album, Rene!January 2, 2022 at 4:57 pm #69524
Yep, I’ve got 43 pages so far, #44 is a summary page of 2021 statistics. Got the statistics just haven’t done the page. For some reason when I started it I did a title page for 2020 (The One With The Pandemic). So I did another one for 2021 (what’s next?) to show it continued on. Now I better figure out one for 2022…
Who knows how many pages it will end up being.January 2, 2022 at 5:58 pm #69529
Rene, you might want to explore the Scrap by Numbers Master Class we had on doing graphics using statistics.January 3, 2022 at 8:28 am #69548CristinaParticipant
Ann and Renne, great layouts to document those unusual times… Who thought it would last that long?! I didn’t; in March 2020, I thought it would be just a few more months… But, boy, was I wrong!January 3, 2022 at 1:21 pm #69550
Ann, I was in that master class already. Great class but not what my project is about (and honestly not my scrapping style at all). It is more journaling and telling the story for the monthly pages. Actually about 75% of each page is journaling, so much to say especially in the beginning months. I also download charts from my state’s website and used those on my 2021 pages.
I did my first layout for this project April 1, 2020 so by the time the master class was available I already had close to years done! I love what I have done so far and it is all cohesive. I used kits bought at a couple different digital scrapping stores. 2020 was using one kit. 2021 has all been using another to differentiate the years. But they flow together quite nicely.January 3, 2022 at 5:16 pm #69556Anne LampParticipant
I decided to go for something different. The Cameos are from digitalscrapbook.com. The original virus pic and the masks are from unsplash.com. The frame is one of Cassel’s. The background paper is jessicaD-2017AprBT-paper-watercolor-stripes. The large shadow on the viruses was because I thought they should be flying. Maybe I should have made the lither thou. I do have family and friends that have had the virus. Some only had mild cases and a couple had pretty bad ones and were in the hospital for quite a while. A friend had a brother pass away from it. I doubt there are not many of us that have not had someone we know that has had it. Who would have ever thought that something like this would change so many things in the whole world.January 5, 2022 at 6:15 am #69596
Reading today’s Campus Update, I remembered that I had documented the hoarding that took over our communities early in the pandemic. I used a little humor which I recalled seeing the layout entitled “Snot Funny” on the Update. Mine was “Eve on Guard” for our toilet paper stash.January 7, 2022 at 4:31 pm #69655Corrie KinkelParticipant
After the free digits with covid-masks Carole gave us the mask itself with layers so we could make our own. Yesterday I played a bit with that file and made a lot of different masks. You see many masks now becoming a fashion item as well! They appear in the same fabric and color as clothes to match a new outfit. I have no photos from covid situations and I simply don’t like to use photos from the internet (very seldom I do to complement a layout). But with this masks it’s something else; it’s colorfull and very simple with a wink!January 11, 2022 at 2:04 pm #69748Lynda DiGregor
This is Lucy….trying to keep her safe too!
It was a bit difficult getting around her big ears. It’s not great but it is what it is. 🙂 I made the treat image with the pen tool, added it to Carole’s mask, then skewed it to fit on Lucy’s nose.January 11, 2022 at 2:17 pm #69751
Yeah, those ears are tough to get around!January 11, 2022 at 4:34 pm #69772Lynda DiGregor
This was created with Carole’s mask and her 2021 template. I changed it to 2022. Thanks, Carole!

Here’s the updated information on masks – specifically the most effective protection – N95 and KN95. I have a somewhat silly Emergency Hospital kit that I used last year but it did have some useful components.
