Tagged: Magazine Challenge 2021 - Day 7
August 3, 2021 at 6:01 pm #61340
Our newest challenge will soon start. Are you in?
You will create various pages in a “magazine” like format, with little to no decorative elements. That will generate pages with a “clean” look and save you time in choosing and arranging embellishments.
The challenge will start on August 16th, 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.
(although every registrant will get some templates to work with, as a little bonus, DIAMOND members will get more)
Did you find this thread before the registration page? Here it is.
In order to post in this forum, you need to be logged in. To be logged in, you need an account. Registering to the challenge did NOT create an account for you automatically, so if you are new to the Campus, you will need to click on Register, on top of the page and create your account. To make it simpler, use the same email address you used to register for the challenge (otherwise, the system will think you have a twin and you will get emails in double).
This challenge will be a little “faster” than the Bootcamp, although the layouts are going to be faster to complete too. This is a repeat of the Publish It challenge, from 2019. A few more templates will be available, however.August 3, 2021 at 10:27 pm #61349Annie TobinParticipant
Hello Scrapbook Campus Friends. I am in for this one. I did a magazine challenge once before and I really enjoyed it so I am really thrilled it has been offered again. I am scouting for photos as of now! ;DAugust 4, 2021 at 4:53 am #61357
Hi Everyone : )
I am almost finishing my Travel Tale layout, so I will try my best to participate in this challenge… Like Annie, I also did it before, and it was great, so many new things to learn and other techniques that I’ve forgotten.
Best wishes! <3August 4, 2021 at 7:24 am #61369
Annie: Glad you’re along for this ride! I’m hoping to get photos from my granddaughter, Jackie’s, wedding back on 6/11. I didn’t take any myself as there were photogs all over the place on the day. One of the few photos I have show me in that famous dress 😉 with my grandson, Tyler, brother of the Bride and part of the famous Flower Bro duo. (see below)
Christina: Especially glad to see you again as I’d heard there was flooding in your area and we hadn’t heard from you. Scary weather phenomena lately!! Climate Crisis for sure!August 4, 2021 at 9:21 am #61370
Hi Ann : )
Thank you so much for your concern…We were spared of this tragedy as the flood happened in two neighboring states… Even 3 weeks after the fact, there are still cities without water and electricity. Huge destruction. : (
As you said, Climate crisis for sure!

Hi everyone 🙂
I am in too; for me it is a new challenge and I’m looking forward to it. As you probably can guess my magazine will have flowers as its topic.August 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm #61382Annie TobinParticipant
Ann you looked really lovely on the day. That colour really suits you my friend and the dress is lovely. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the wedding photos. 😉August 5, 2021 at 9:43 pm #61391Bonnie BallentineParticipant
I’ll give this a shot. Thank you, Carole!August 5, 2021 at 10:52 pm #61407
Carole, although I registered, I didn’t get a confirmation email.August 5, 2021 at 11:02 pm #61408
Sue, I just checked and the email was sent on August 3rd. Could it have gone to your spam?August 5, 2021 at 11:58 pm #61409
It was in the spam folder, the very first time that has happened.August 7, 2021 at 7:45 pm #61437Gerry LandrethParticipant
I’m looking forward to a new challenge. Every time I register for one of these, I chastise myself for not having my photos better organized – “better” being a generous characterization.August 7, 2021 at 8:12 pm #61438
Gerry, maybe we should have an Organization challenge!!! 😉August 9, 2021 at 9:31 am #61479MinkaParticipant
I’m in for this as well. I’m STILL in building mode here at home, but the work there progresses along without me now. I’ve never done a Magazine Challenge or a Publish It Challenge – at least not that I recall. Maybe it was right before I joined the campus. Sounds like great fun and a new adventure. Got my theme in mind and collecting and generating photo’s as I type! Looking forward to it and to seeing all of you again.August 10, 2021 at 10:18 am #61603Anne LampParticipant
Gerry – I’m with you on that. When it come to my photos that work is not even in my vocabulary.
Cassel – An Organization Challenge? Hmmmm would we have several years to complete that one?August 10, 2021 at 5:24 pm #61621Sheila HoggParticipant
Hi Everyone, hope you are all safe and well. I am up for this one too.August 10, 2021 at 7:02 pm #61622nadineParticipant
hello carole & all of you )))
for once, I will try to participate in this challenge 😉 I hope to have the time !!! and above all, it’s new as a page composition for me who only does scrapbooking.August 11, 2021 at 3:00 am #61626STAVROS PAPADOPOULOSParticipant
Hello Scrapbook Campus Friends.August 12, 2021 at 2:40 pm #61705Gerry LandrethParticipant
Carol. YES! I started a scanning project of my mother’s 70-year collection of photos using PSP. Adding tags has helped, but other ideas, techniques, and/or tools would be most welcomed.

I’m in too, although I don’t know with which photos yet. I’ve never made magazine pages. I like to learn new things !August 16, 2021 at 9:16 am #61808
Here is my Day 1… I am going photos that I didn’t use for the Travel Tale Challenge.
I used the Gemstone 40% Instant Effect on the photo and added a bar code (Creative Scrap tutorial) to the cover.

Nadine, we will have 8 pages in the tutorials, but you will be able to modify the templates to create more. So the minimum will be 8 pages, while you can expand that to many more.August 16, 2021 at 10:40 am #61819
Cristina, good morning, you are leading the way with you beautiful front cover. It’s bold and dramatic. It will certainly stand out on the magazine shelves. I see you used the instant effects. It’s not the first time either. I’m going to have to explore those effects more closely. Well done, I love it. I’ll probably get mine done later on this afternoon, as the temps are still up in the high 30s. Sat it was 40.7c. 39c yesterday, and giving a high of 37c for today.August 16, 2021 at 11:12 am #61820
Good morning, Sue. 🙂
Thank you for your comment. It is very much appreciated. <3
I did use the instant effects tool, as I have also used it for 2019 Publish it Challenge... I don’t use this tool very often, so I saw again an opportunity to do it… Of course, I knew what was coming, so I started yesterday to create the page.
Sue, temperatures over there are scorching hot. 🙁 No fun at all… It’s hard on humans, vegetation, and animals.
Take care, my friend!August 16, 2021 at 12:21 pm #61828
Here is my Day 1 – Magazine Cover – I’m going with bird photos as I do not have wedding photos… yet.
These will all be from The Hudson Valley in Pictures on Facebook. I devised a gradient to match the Blue Jay’s coloring. Blue Jays are corvids which means they are related to Crows and Grackles and are feisty and entertaining. My information comes from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology here in New York. The font for the title is Berlin Kitchen 2 and the font for the date is (appropriately enough) Birdy. The background is filled on the right with a red/orange gradient reduced to 70% opacity.
Edit: I added a fine line between the photo and the right panel.

I’m in too 🙂
The last challenge (travel tale?) I couldn’t participate even though I wanted to due to my mum moving house and the enormous amount of paperwork that came along with it. My head was a bit too full 🙂
But anyway, I hope I will keep up with this challenge and love to see all your projects 🙂
I love Cristina‘s lay out, but I only did what was asked in the tutorial. Will change things later. Love the code at the bottom and the Special edition text,Cristina 🙂
My challenge subject will be Appeltern, a garden inspiration park in the Netherlands my husband and I love to go to. It’s so nice to walk there, even when you don’t need inspiration for your garden.
Well anyway, here is the first page 🙂
