Dawn your pages were really lovely, and I love the sentiment in your postcard. You may not be able to travel but at least you can see the places through other people’s photographs.
Here are two more of my pages, I still want to do more to finish the trip and I have lots of ideas from the suggestions Cassel has given us. These two are of the first part of our trip when we spent a day in Quebec then took the train to Montreal where we had another day – not long enough but didn’t have any extra time. I have used the blue colour from my map of Quebec and added the SmoothOverlay from Cassel. I made the date stamp and leather tag from the tutorials, and used a script called SimpleCaption from Corel to frame the photos. I tried to mirror the layout so the two pages could be used as a double page. The titles were made using the text cutter in PSP and one of the photos.July 23, 2017 at 5:39 am #14099
beautiful pages. YOu have some great photos Marlene
Love your postcard page Dawn.
Didn’t have time yesterday to make some pages, will try today.July 23, 2017 at 5:54 am #14100Sheila HoggParticipant
I have been watching with great interest even though I have not had time to join this due to doing the Basic Scrap as I knew I wouldn’t be able to do both but I see you have all done some lovely layouts. It is so nice to see the beauty of other countries if only through the eyes of other peeps and their photos. Love it.

I tried the sand letters, not entirely happy with it, but blended on the photo it was not that bad.
This is the beach in the NetherlandsJuly 23, 2017 at 8:26 am #14104
Very nice work and techniques posted here. In the end, this is what is important when participating in a challenge, where we have the opportunity to share our work and learn from each other.
Eileen, the end result of the sand letters came up good. I like how you blended the light house and flowers.Nice colors!
Dawn, I love your pages, your photos, everything… Even without you being there, you took us on your dream trip. I am glad you decided to participate. Lovely work!
Marlene, with you I went to Québec and Montreal… I think I would love this cable ride! Nice work!
I haven’t done anything yet, but I am working on it, separating photos, choosing template etc. Like Cassel said, although officially over we can always post our work here.
Cassel, this was a great challenge, in which you gave us new ideas and great small tutorials. Thank you!July 24, 2017 at 1:33 am #14144
Another two pages, nearly there! I have tried to stay with the design of the other pages for continuity. The postcard and stamp was from Cassel’s tutorial. I am planning two more pages to show some of the photos we took when we went across the Rockies, I still have photos from Thunder Bay and Calgary but I think they will have to wait for another time.July 24, 2017 at 3:51 am #14157
Cristina .. Thank you very much for your lovely comments on my “Dream Travel” pages.
Marlene, your 4 pages are really nice , you must have had a great time in all the places you visited. I enjoyed viewing them. Thank you for your comments on my pages…
Eileen, your Beach in the Netherlands is very nice and I also like the blending of the lighthouse, flower and shells… a very nice effect. Thank you for your comment on my postcard page. . The postcard tutorial Cassel gave us in the email was so simple to do yet quite effective and will make a great element to use again.
Cassel.. I also want to say “Thank You” for all the time and effort you make to arrange these great Challenges for us to do.

Eileen, when you mention that the sand letters don’t work as you wanted, this tutorial is not for writing IN the sand but writing WITH sand. That might be why it differs from what you expected.
Marlene, I have a little pinch seeing your page about Montreal, as that is where I grew up. I even went to watch an Olympic event at the Stadium back in 1976 as I had gotten tickets for my birthday that year.
Sheila, you can always start this challenge later. Just keep the emails and everything will be at your fingertips.
Dawn, I think you will end up with a lovely album. I like that consistency you have throughout the pages. It makes for a great album. If you ever decide to print it, take a picture of the finished book!
Royanne, anxious to see more pages!
Beth, did you manage to make pages with those tutorials?
I would like to thank you all for participating. I am glad you enjoyed the ideas and tutorials and that you found the time to join, to make pages and to share your work. In addition, it is great to see everyone encouraging everyone else, and get inspired by others.
Continue to add pages as you finish them!July 24, 2017 at 7:27 am #14159
Marlene those pages look great.July 24, 2017 at 3:25 pm #14160
Marlene, your pages are lovely, and this was probably an unforgettable trip. The inclusion of the leather tags, date stamps, postcard etc added a nice touch to the page. These short tutorials that Cassel included in the emails are great, not only for this challenge but also for future projects.July 25, 2017 at 2:18 am #14166
Thank you everyone for the kind remarks, it is always nice to get good feedback. Well the two pages I mentioned before turned into FOUR! The hardest part of this challenge was sorting out, selecting and scanning the photos – using the same design made doing the actual pages very easy, particularly using the SimpleCaption script. These pages use elements from Cassel’s Canada 150 kit, and the Athabasca page uses her WordEdgeCut script.
I want to thank you Cassel for setting us this challenge, I don’t think I would ever have done anything with these photos otherwise and it was lovely to look back on the trip after all these years. I still have photos from the Rocky Mountaineer trip I haven’t used but it will be easy to add pages if I get the chance.July 25, 2017 at 3:19 am #14167
those pages are just wonderful, love how you used the map and the date stamps. The word above the photo on the Athabasca page gives a great effect too.July 25, 2017 at 4:32 am #14168
Great pages Marlene! Lovely photos of the Rocky Mountains, especially with the snow. It would have been so beautiful to see. Thank you for sharing some memories of your travels with us…. I enjoyed viewing them…
Dawn.July 26, 2017 at 2:38 am #14180
Marlene, lovely pages! Love them all…I am sure you traveled again while doing the pages, and we traveled with you. Great memories for sure.July 26, 2017 at 2:43 am #14181
I am still working on my page… haven’t had much time to do it, but I will for sure post my project … hopefully this week.July 26, 2017 at 11:18 am #14186
I am glad to say I finally finished my page… earlier than I expected. It was fun! I am planning to do another one but using a different Marisa Lerin’s template that Cassel gave us… From the short tutorials, I used the leather tag, stamp, and postcard… For the date stamp, I used the Date Stamp 5 script.July 26, 2017 at 11:23 am #14187
I forgot to mention that I based my layout on Marisa Lerin’s template marisaL-layout362
Casse, thanks again for this great challenge.July 26, 2017 at 11:30 am #14188
wonderful pages. You have some lovely photos. Great use of the postcard tooJuly 26, 2017 at 11:41 am #14189
Eileen, thank you so much for your kind comment. I really appreciate.
I also forgot to mention that the maps (route and paper) were also from Cassel’s short tutorials. I used the technique from the Masterclass Blend Through.July 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm #14191
Cristina, really lovely pages, Your postcard, tag and maps look great. I love your little car and tyre tracks- very creative. I enjoyed viewing your photos, it is wonderful to see other places… I hope you had a great time on your trip. Thanks for sharing your travels…. Best wishes to you…
Dawn.July 27, 2017 at 4:43 am #14194
Hi, Dawn, thank you so much for your comment. 🙂 This cute tire track is Cassel’s picture tube and the log background is from Filter Forge.July 28, 2017 at 6:26 pm #14209
Lovely, lovely scrapbooking. I was away on vacation and plan to catch up in the next couple of days.
April, your postcard is awesome …. great inspirationJuly 28, 2017 at 10:29 pm #14211
Day 3 – I used cass-Datestamp2 for the date stamp. The picture is not the best quality, but I wanted to scrapbook it because you don’t very often get the chance to hold a Falcon. I wanted it to be bright. I used a bright paper and put it into a mask to soften the edges I used http://weescotslasscreations.blogspot.ca #84. There are lots of neat free masks there. I used a bright gold frame from a kit I purchased.July 29, 2017 at 6:50 pm #14233
Hello Royanne, a very nice page and I can understand why you would want to scrapbook it. would have been a great experience on your travels to hold a Falcon in this way. your chosen colours are lovely . Thank you also for you kind comment on my project. Best wishes to you….
Dawn.July 30, 2017 at 3:09 am #14237
wonderful pageAugust 1, 2017 at 1:18 pm #14286
Royanne, beautiful page. The bright colors match perfectly with the photo and place.August 2, 2017 at 10:40 pm #14294
Well I am still at it …. never give up…. Day 4 tag. I followed the instructions from Cassel and put a camel on it. I like the way it turned out. We went to a Restaurant in the desert. It was unbelievable … the food was either by menu or several huge buffets with ethnic food. The entertainment was amazing, there were belly dancers, didn’t get a picture so I added an element I had of a belly dancer. The lively dance was spectacular all of the colours and hoops. There was a camel and horse caravan show. I matched the colours to the belly dancer, I had a solid dark blue background then I used a grunge type paintbrush with the lighter blue. I found a city skyline of Arabic type buildings on the internet. Then I used the same brush but smaller and highlighted around the skyline with the lighter blue. I used the layers style, as per Cassel master class instructions, outer glow of white. Hopefully, i succeeded in sharing the magical feeling I felt there.August 3, 2017 at 1:45 am #14297
OK, I am on a roll now. Day 5 with the postage stamp. My picture was not large enough for the whole page so I put a second picture of my husband. We were on the beach just in different spots. I added my date stamp as my element. I put my picture in the postage stamp frame, directions per Cassel. I put Ken’s picture in a mask to blend it in. Tried to match the paper with the different colors. I used a base paper and then I put a color layer on top to pull out the blues.August 3, 2017 at 2:52 am #14298
lovely pages, live the white glow around the photos.August 3, 2017 at 4:25 am #14299
Hello Royanne, very nice pages, great choice of colours on both and that outer glow on the photos so effective , I like using the glow effect also as it adds a really nice interest to a project. You and your hubby must have had very interesting travels.
