What a fun challenge…once again, thank you, Carole! Ladies and Gentlemen, your pages are amazing. Such wonderful ideas, thinking out of the box, and beautiful creations. Thank you, all, for sharing your talent and creations.October 29, 2020 at 10:06 pm #48679Karon DeyParticipant
Jnet…November, December and the cover are really stunning.
Sue…Great spider pic (even though I have been bitten by a brown recluse 40+ years ago, I still love the creep crawlies, especially the crab-like orb weavers) Great work with the text and vectors.
Ann Seeber…Beautiful pages. The pictures are awesome and just adore your fenced in turkeys.
Corrie…You have done a great job one your pages. The pictures, the flowers and the elements make each one special. And your cover is awesome. I really like the inclusion of the little flower pictures from the months.
Liese…What a nice way to gift your family. Your January page is delightful (love the silhouettes).
MoniqueN…Fantastic pages and cover. Like how you changed the gradient so each month is a little different. My sister covers her kids faces too, so don’t worry about it.
Bonnie…A beautiful way to treasure those friends who are like family. Your cover is wonderful and the pages are lovely. Do like the wordart you have chosen and the addition of extra pictures on some of the pages. And being an August child too and a lover of cats, I just adore the little string art cat you placed on that month.October 30, 2020 at 12:08 am #48682Raymond EasleyParticipant
I wanted to display a “reason” for the slanted December Text. I duplicated the photo layer, used the Selection tool and drew the area I wanted and used what Carole suggested as the feathering at 80. Copied and pasted it into the new layer.October 30, 2020 at 4:45 am #48683Ann SeeberParticipant
Bonnie: Your calendar is so enjoyable! The friendship and love just flow from your pages. I particularly liked the December color layout. Hadn’t seen a calendar page with white type and art before. Well done!
This past 2 weeks have been intense with 13 pages to create that I feel a distinct loss .. a letdown.. with nothing in the pipeline..yet. In hopeful anticipation for the webinar on Sunday and whatever November brings from Carole.. !

Karon, thank you! Bonnie, what a very nice calendar you made!. I’m in the proces of printing mine and as usual the paper and ink are not sufficient, so tomorrow to the shop to get more.
Ann, I feel the same, for next month I’ll have to find new inspiration, but I too am l looking forward to the coming masterclass. And besides that I have to clean up the computer, I always make a mess when I’m working on a big challenge. All the elements and photo’s that I use must go back to their original files or must be deleted if I copied them to my workspace. Then I’m ready for something new.October 30, 2020 at 9:57 pm #48706Marie-ClaireParticipant
What beautiful calendars you have all made. Congrats.
Thank you Carole for this Challenge. As always I learned new things.
My calendar is also finished. These are the pages.October 31, 2020 at 7:40 am #48710MoniqueN.Participant
Great idea to put the names of the days on the calender. 🙂 Nice calender! 🙂October 31, 2020 at 7:56 am #48711Karon DeyParticipant
Marie-Claire…Beautiful calendar pages. I, too, like the idea of putting the names of the days on the calendar. Wish I had thought of it. Love the font you used.November 18, 2020 at 4:24 am #49353
Very late, but here are a few more calendar pages.
Photos from Pixabay (Alexas_Fotos – AndaDeea – Suju) … I added PSP picture tubes: 2021Headscarves; Spruce and Confetti. Also added Cassels’s HolidayCharms-White Flakes freebie; LittleBow-samples.November 18, 2020 at 4:35 am #49357
And two more, August and September.
I watched yesterday’s Corel Webinar, “Make a Holiday Calendar,” hosted by Carole. It has great tips and techniques, creative layouts, and all of this with gorgeous photos from Sue Thomas. It is a must-see if anyone is thinking about creating calendars.November 20, 2020 at 10:24 pm #49508
I am working through the lessons, but I haven’t been able to access the Day 5 lesson and templates. I receive an error that I’m not logged in. But I am. The links for the other days work fine.
Anyone have tips for accessing this lesson? It’s the last one I have to do.
Thanks!November 21, 2020 at 2:39 am #49524
Hi Carol Anne, you cannot access this course because it is now being offered for purchase as a standalone course, as shown in the image below.
If you have registered for this Challenge, may I suggest you contact Cassel as she will probably have a solution.November 21, 2020 at 11:29 am #49539CasselKeymaster
Carol Ann, if you were registered for the challenge version, it should still be accessible with the link and the password from the email. If you didn’t register for the challenge, as Cristina said, it is available as a paid standalone project.November 22, 2020 at 5:03 am #49603
Carole, although I was registered and participated in the challenge version, I get the same answer as Carol Ann, whether I am logged in or not. So the page is not accessible anymore.November 22, 2020 at 11:06 am #49614CasselKeymaster
That is what you get if you go through the PROJECTS. But if you use the links in the emails you received throughout the challenge, those are accessible. They are not in the same place and they are not the same pages.November 22, 2020 at 11:32 am #49618
Hi Carole, 🙂
I did NOT go through the Projects… I did use the link in the email I received, and that’s why I thought it was not available anymore to the participants, only to those that purchase it… So, I answered Carol Ann based on this assumption.
I checked again early today before writing to you and had the same answer.November 22, 2020 at 12:04 pm #49619
Thanks for verifying that you had a problem with the Day 5 link, too. But I was able to modify other similar templates to make them look like the missing September and October templates. Thanks for trying to help.

Hi Carol Anne, I am glad you find a way to finish your calendar pages!
But, in case you have any issues again, besides posting here, you can also email Cassel. I can say by experience that she is very kind, helpful, and always answers very fast!November 24, 2020 at 12:38 am #49626
Here are my calendars and cover. Thanks for the challenge. This was the first time I’ve worked with masks. I still have a lot to learn about them.November 24, 2020 at 12:38 am #49627
The rest of my calendar pages. I decided to keep things simple and not try gradients or textures because I can’t quite make them work yet. I need more study!
