Day 3 – the date stamp. Had a couple of goes with this until I was happy with it. I did the thing with the rubber and a grungy tip, I wondered how that effect was done, something new I have learnt today. I also added another effect to the date stamp: Inner bevel No. 2, width 15, smoothness 45, deptch 12, ambience 23, shininess 29, colour white, angle 12, intensity 25, elevation 45. This seemed to give it a more smudgy look as if it had just been stamped in the ink.June 18, 2020 at 12:14 pm #44009
Carole and Others …I’ve been adding each individual item by itself because things are changing daily depending on what needs to be added. I was going to reverse path for the text, but I was having problems, and rather than fall behind,….I went with the attached (for now)…June 18, 2020 at 12:20 pm #44010Art KuiperParticipant
We cycled across PEI in Sep 2003. Beside seeing some unique things like Irish Moss collecting, we met the most friendly people of anywhere that we have been. In O’Leary we met a family at the RCMP musical ride that happened to be in town. After the show they lent us their truck to drive for the next day to see some places we would not have seen on our bikes. We will never forget this and other kindnesses we had on this trip. If you haven’t been there yet, GO SOON!June 18, 2020 at 12:28 pm #44012
Additional Day 3 using the template …I hope this is close to what I’m suppose to be doing.June 18, 2020 at 1:36 pm #44014
Well I am still behind but here is my result for Day 2June 18, 2020 at 2:00 pm #44015
I think I am getting lost in this challenge. Are we supposed to be adding each lesson to the same page?June 18, 2020 at 3:01 pm #44016CasselKeymaster
Lois, it depends on what stories you want to tell. I provide you with double-page templates every day since some people have lots of photos to showcase or lots of stories to tell. Each tutorial is about an element you can add to a page, but it does not HAVE to be on that day’s page but it can be, or on another page, or even on multiple pages. Just show us SOMETHING every day, but remember that you will likely edit previous pages anyways. That is expected!June 18, 2020 at 3:14 pm #44017
Thank you so much for replying Carole. Really appreciate it.
I was starting to feel lost.

I get to head home next week and can you tell, I am a little excited about it? I haven’t seen my house in about nine months and I am really really happy to be getting back there. Florida is nice, but time to be home! Another colorful one – date stamp from Cassel’s scripts … the pictures used Cassel’s Add Borders script … and I attempted a leather tag. There is no official icon for home, so I just made up one. It’s all about learning, right? I left the fonts unshaded and just wanted to see if they look better that way. I know they sure do print better that way. Live and learn. I am loaded with wildlife in Maine and keep a camera at the ready as I feed anything and everything that comes along. I draw the line at bears, though, Art. Weird picture puzzle skies are some of my favorites. You often see them on the puzzle boxes and say … no sky looks like that. But some do! Usually just before or after a storm.June 18, 2020 at 6:10 pm #44021Corrie KinkelParticipant
What a different pages are made from really amazing trips. Here is mine for day 2 and 3 combined. When I was almost ready with day 2 came the poststamp for day 3 and I decided to put those together. I has a long flight from the Netherland to Seattle and I made a photo of the flightpad from the little monitor in front of me. My daughter and the grandkids were welcoming me at the airport but we made no photo’s. After that it was a short drive to their home and that is what you see on the photo’s.June 18, 2020 at 8:28 pm #44031June 18, 2020 at 8:32 pm #44032
Beautiful photos and beautifully arranged. Glad you are on your way home…home is where the heart is! 🙂June 18, 2020 at 9:02 pm #44037
A friend and I stayed in London with friends who we met working in Cleveland. A day trip to Hampton Court and another to Bath were fun.
My favorite was the walking tour of the murder sites of Jack, The Ripper in the late afternoon. It finished just as the sun was setting, conveniently in front of a pub.
It’s another batch of lost pictures but the memories are still vivid and the stories still only slightly exaggerated.
I enjoyed learning how to create the luggage tag. Thank you for helping us explore new things.June 18, 2020 at 9:16 pm #44040
I wanted to thank Cassel for two excellent scripts I used on the Day 3 challenge, Date Stamp 4 and Word Slats. After spending time on blending photos and textures for the slats, I realized it didn’t work in that particular layout.
Both were easy to use and gave me a good foundation to embellish them.June 18, 2020 at 10:00 pm #44044Mary StanderParticipant
Here is my Day 1 silhouette. I’m behind but will still enjoy learning the skills and being inspired by everyone’s ideas.
My husband and I took a trip to France several years ago. It was a great history lesson and museum march. It is amazing how we both were enjoying that aspect of it.

This image is a bit busy but I learned a lot about the tools and features of Paintshop in trying to adjust, crop and correct some of these items before putting them into the picture. I have a few more things I would like to figure out with PSP but that will be for later days in this challenge. ‘Simple is Good!’ is my goal for next time.June 19, 2020 at 3:13 am #44053Nemisis GoosehabitParticipant
Very much a newcomer to digital scrapbooking. Its taken me two days to figure out posting my efforts. Oh well onwards and upwards,Ive ordered Cassels book so hopefully will do better in future.

So here comes day 3 just a day late, but it took me that long to get my stamp done. I nearly gave up and cheated. Its all about the layers Shirley. Oh well, I am still in Australia, and have been to the zoo today.June 19, 2020 at 10:49 am #44060Lyn LouParticipant
7 Days in Jersey with my mother.
We flew from London City Airport to Jersey and arrived late evening, we were driven straight to our hotel. We spent the week exploring the island going to different places each day! The beaches were stunning, the people were friendly. We had a great time, and some lovely memories. I love how this template came out a bit like a postcard.June 19, 2020 at 1:16 pm #44063Krystyna NichollsParticipant
There are some awesome graphics coming through, especially like the leather tags Lynda. Minka, those photos are amazing.
So, Day 4 – leather tags. I had a go at two for my graphic. I did the double page spread and then split them up to post here. So, here we go – spent most of the day on this challenge. Again, this is stil lpart of our trip to Mexico 6 years ago.June 19, 2020 at 2:03 pm #44069CristinaParticipant
Creative layouts, interesting stories, great work, Everyone!
I am a slow scrapper, so I am creating just one layout. I am still in the process of choosing the photos, so that’s why there are empty spots in the template. The photos are of a trip my husband and I did last year for a few days to Lake Constance.June 19, 2020 at 2:09 pm #44072
So many possibilities ….I’m lost without pictures when it comes to the tutorials..This is a “leather tag”I made up for the Calgary Stampede…I guess it should have a hole in it ….Eh?June 19, 2020 at 3:16 pm #44074
It wasn’t quite big enough to make into a background … so I just used it as a lone picture. Minimal words- just where it is … took me longer to make the two itty bitty stamps!!! LOL They need to be bigger, but it was fun to make them and unfortunately, all the time I have today. I have loved seeing all the pictures and travels. I think this has been the most fun challenge so far with all the participation. Lynda – LOVE LOVE your leather tags! Might have to steal … oops … I mean borrow them. :oxJune 19, 2020 at 3:24 pm #44076Janice EthertonParticipant
Day One of Travel. My first trip overseas, landing in Iceland then over to England, Irland, and Scotland. This is going to be a fun look back on our trip.June 19, 2020 at 3:51 pm #44078Isabel VasquezParticipant
Day 4 Travel-Tale-Challenge
I did the leather tag, I enjoyed creating it. I will practice more later. I am one day behind and will try to catch up if not today, tomorrow. I been wanting to ask “How can I answer to the people posting” I want to congratulate you all but don’t know where to respond.June 19, 2020 at 5:35 pm #44079
Beautiful work all. Brian, your leather tag is amazingJune 19, 2020 at 6:17 pm #44080
Isabel … you just write here and don’t include a picture. Same as you would if you were posting something. 🙂 Good job on your leather tag, too! I like that coordinating blue leather.June 19, 2020 at 6:41 pm #44082cindy harrisParticipant
Hi Everybody, and the Best Teacher to me since only 3 before You. <b>I tried but couldn’t use my wand to do the silhouette so I used the freehand, then couldn’t do it ether then took a brake, a few brakes later got it fixed (it was in the settings) so freehanded the Island of Okinawa Japan where we landed in 1983. Loved it my children cried when we left they said they wanted to be japanese.</b>
<b>Thank you for the for the template, I did try but they wouldn’t go in the pictures. But when I get it figured out I will use it tons. I made shark tubes, and couple others the Az cactus was from a lesson in the past, ty for them. I love tubes as some might see, I could tube all day. lol I think I did everything but I wanted to only do them your way. I will soon I hope, but there’s always more ways than one. Another Great Teacher 6th grade said that to me. But I do want to learn the fast easy way. I love being a Diamond member, I will learn.</b>June 19, 2020 at 7:25 pm #44084
The person featured on the stamps was the daughter of one of my closest friends. Three of the photos are from her trip to Miami in 2010. I wasn’t able to go to the beach with them, but they borrowed my camera. The top picture is her in the early 70s at a beach in New York.
Tris recently passed away. She was in a nursing home in New York City and died of COVID-19 related illness. Pictures from that trip brought back good memories of good friends.
On a technical note, I wanted to give more depth to the envelopes but wasn’t quite sure how to achieve it. My guess is to make use of shadows.June 19, 2020 at 7:26 pm #44085Isabel VasquezParticipant
Thanks Minka I appreciate it. I love your work.
