Way cute page Ann, well done Hun. 🙂December 4, 2020 at 10:43 pm #50087Bonnie BallentineParticipant
I am thinking of printing this as a Christmas gift for a friend. I can’t post it on FB as she is a member there.
The names on this subway art are some of the top women professional pickleball players in the world…except, my friend. I think she might enjoy being listed among the best in the world. There are two with the last name Waters…mother/daughter. Daughter is 13 and rocking the pickleball world. The top 2 names are the number 1 and 2 players in the world.December 5, 2020 at 1:26 am #50095Susan CaronParticipant
Thank you Annie and Lynda. My Mom was barely 20 in that pic. It was her engagement photo. I’m very excited to put my family’s cookbook together…I know they will love it!December 5, 2020 at 2:13 am #50097
I decided to post this page here. I was going to post it on the theme page but I have started another for that using Carole’s freebies. I saw a card like this online so I decided to make a copy with very few changes I might add. The eyes were made by following the googly eyes tut in Lab 10 Module 11. The arrow is Carole’s etched glass freebie, as is the carrot. The mouth I made using the pen tool and the buttons were created using a tut by Carole. The snowman in the bottom left corner is a freebie from ajgv! Fonts used are CK Snowman and EloquentJF Swash. Thanks for takin a peek. ;DDecember 5, 2020 at 8:19 am #50105
What a beautiful page you created Annie. I love the snowman front cover.
Well done on the subway art Bonnie, aren’t they fun to create! I’m sure your friend will love it too.December 5, 2020 at 12:16 pm #50115
Finished Day 5 for the Advent series.
I’d like more information on accessing the more elaborate fonts. The nice, graceful corner pieces, for example!
Edit: Day 5 looks too dark so here’s a lighter version. The bottom layer was filled with a camel color originally and I changed it to white. Also, I had reduced the opacity on the Christmas tree scene originally and now I brightened it up.December 5, 2020 at 7:29 pm #50133
Thanks Sue, always appreciated my friend. ;DDecember 5, 2020 at 7:35 pm #50134
A lovely page Ann, job well done my friend. As for the more elaborate fonts you could perhaps try searching for dingbat corners or just generally dingbats. dafont, dingbat depot, font squirrel, urban fonts all have freebies that may be useful. ;DDecember 5, 2020 at 7:50 pm #50136
Love the Queens of the Court subway art Bonnie, nice job my friend. ;DDecember 6, 2020 at 12:11 am #50140Roni HewittParticipant
This is a picture of my Aunt Marge in front of the Police Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. I’ve taken the picture of her at the wall and added a layer of her son, who was a policeman killed in the line of duty, and made his body almost translucent so that he appears to be a ghost. The only picture of him in uniform was when he was younger and I wanted him to look about the same as when we last saw him so I cropped his head from another photo and layered it on top of his “ghost” and made that ghostly also. I then created another raster layer in order to make his ghostly form have a translucent aura around him setting the color to white, the opacity to 20 and just painting in the area that I wished to have the aura. After finishing this photo, I took it to Costco and had it put on a 20″ x 16″ canvas and it looks great. I just hope she likes it for her Christmas gift and as a memorial to her fallen son.December 6, 2020 at 10:01 am #50146
Advent Day 6 – The Little Drummer Boy (also for the Song Challenge-Christmas)
I’m keeping the same border daily though I do change the color from time to time. I found a curly font called Nymphette at DaFont for the corners and applied an inner bevel. The font on the Advent text and the Number 6 is Wedding Text BT which I thought looked antique. The drummer boy and sheet music I found on Google. I lowered the opacity on the white sheet music which is layered over a wrinkled yellowed paper from one of my kits.
Bonnie, That poster is beautifully done. I have to ask my pickleball friend if she’d like to see it. I don’t know if she’s up on the “Queens of the Court”December 6, 2020 at 2:20 pm #50154
Trish, what a lovely page with the deers and quote.
Ann Seeber, great Orchids page. I think you did a wonderful job on the torn edges and the scallops. The orchids are such a beautiful color and using them in the title was a perfect idea. How cute is your snow in Warwick page. The snowman is adorable. Love your woodpecker photo. They are such beautiful birds. Day 5 Advent is stunning. Well done. Day 6 is so cute. Love the addition of the music and drummer boy card.
Annie, your cross pattern papers are awesome. Using the same colors but different blend modes shows just how versitile the pattern can be. Advent day 1 is a fantastic layout. All the papers and elements you have created really set off the Sue’s photo. The season’s greetings layout is nicely done and has perfect colors and patterns.
Sue, you always come up with great ideas to use the lessons within the campus. Using your photos to make an Advent calendar is inspirational.
Lynda, fantastic bows. Don’t you just love the script? I went crazy with it when I first bought it, adding big bows to kits that didn’t have any bows. Love your mushrooms. Adding the bevel and shadow really sets them off.
Anne Lamp, nice page layout. Stunning pictures and the frames really set them off.
Sue, stunnning subway tree art. You are so creative. Beautiful photo of the snowy owl and thanks for sharing it.
Susan, your layout is so lovely. What a great idea to scan in your mother’s recipes as a gift.
Bonnie, fabulous idea to produce your subway art as a gift to your friend.
Roni, putting the picture on canvas as a gift is a great idea. Your aunt, I am sure, will love the gift. You did a beautiful job blending your cousin’s relief onto the photo.December 6, 2020 at 2:50 pm #50165

Thank you ever so much Karon, on your very kind comments, they are very much appreciated, and mean a lot to me. These little birds spend their summer high in the arctic. They fly further south in late autumn, to spend their winters.December 6, 2020 at 4:20 pm #50173
Another winter visitor. they too spend their summers way up north. They are friendly little birds, and will take feed from the hand. I added the the number six, matching it to the element. A layout I often do, select the bird, frame, background texture. Ribbon, created matching the colours, with Embroidery Font. This little chap is looking curiously down on the snowman.December 6, 2020 at 4:25 pm #50175
You can’t create anything much simpler thank this page. There isn’t anything I won’t shoot in nature. I used 2 photos. It took me longer to colour one corner of the holly and berries than it did to do the rest. Those that know me, know my pages are quite minimalistic, always maintaining focus on the photos.December 6, 2020 at 10:51 pm #50182
Absolutely delightful Sue, well done my friend. ;DDecember 6, 2020 at 10:57 pm #50183
Sue I love this little bird, he is too cute and you have emphasized that with the little snowman. Very nice work Sue, simplicity at it’s best. ;DDecember 7, 2020 at 2:12 am #50186
Beautiful work on both pages Karon. You obviously have some treasured photos and digital scrapbooking will showcase them delightfully. You have loads of potential and I really like your work. ;DDecember 7, 2020 at 2:15 am #50187
Thanks Karon, always appreciated Hun. ;DDecember 7, 2020 at 6:21 am #50190
December Christmas Song Challenge + Advent Day 7
Obviously, this is different for me. I played around with the photo of the trees in snow, using it as a pattern in the border and as a layer with reduced opacity over the layer with the two deer, which are elements from the AHA-Hygge kit. The font for the song title is Snap and the number 7 is Stencil.December 7, 2020 at 9:09 am #50194
Very nice Ann, I can make out the deer in the trees.
Thank you ever so much Annie, you are always so kind with your words, my dear! As our temps drops your are rising, stay cool!December 7, 2020 at 9:21 am #50196
I’ve been trying to create an advent calendar for a while, finally created one I like. This one is suitable for an adult. My grandchildren are a bit young yet for them. It’s a bit late for this year, but I shall send them to some friends, along with sticker photos to be stuck on the relevant dates. Size 11 x 8.5 inches. I could create ones without stickers, and the recipients can cross off the days. Several possibilities available. I created a box, flood fill, added the dates, deleted the boxes that the eagle were in, making sure I still had 24. Extracted the eagle, created background paper.December 7, 2020 at 1:11 pm #50199Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Karon, You have done a stellar job on Graduate layout. I couldn’t stop looking at it.
Sue, your advent calendar is very nice . I especially like the pine cones.
Ann, your advent calendar is also coming along nicely.
I did finish all the changes on my calendar and printed 11 of them for family. I kept changing things but I think I like it better now. I also made a calendar showcasing my photos for my sister-in-law. I hope she likes it.December 7, 2020 at 6:24 pm #50202
Thank you very much Lynda! The pine cone photo is what I pasted into selection. You have done an absolutely superb job on the calendar. The recipients will be thrilled to bits, I know I would be, if I was having one of them.December 7, 2020 at 6:29 pm #50203
Amazing Sue! You did a beautiful job of extracting the eagle and your layout is truly lovely … simplicity at it’s very best my friend. ;DDecember 7, 2020 at 7:05 pm #50205
Thank you Annie, All is well with you, I hope!December 8, 2020 at 3:13 am #50223
Lynda, I am sure your family will be delighted with their 2021 Calendar, I know I would be. It is superb my friend … persistence pays off! ;D
Sue your advent page 8 is superb. I love it and what a delightful little bird the Bohemian Waxwing is. I am well my friend, thank you. Just melting in the heat, lol!
