Ann congratulations and you can put the Card Workshop to good use!December 22, 2022 at 4:09 pm #88783
Mary, I had the one with the 2022 date in my Dec 2022 folder but forgot it was a freebie from Carole. I finally figured out it is a companion to the Word Album script. It is actually to make booklets to print, etc.December 22, 2022 at 7:33 pm #88788
My turn for giving thanks.
To Sue, for all the wonderful goodies, being inspiring and teaching us about the natural world.
To Carol; for being who you are and the community you have created. What a marvel and what an inspiration.
To All the Campus Campers; Wow! Incredible talent, brilliant ideas and layouts and always there for each camper. Amazing!
Here’s my Christmas card front this year. Not my favorite (it’s the shot I was trying to get in 2019 where I slipped on the dustpan and skated across the basement floor – partially tearing a hamstring on the way – confirm not until Jan. 2020). The double framed one I sent to a photo printer and they cut off the top and right side of the frames, back to the design drawing board and the clock ticking away. Was this going to be a New Years card after all? I quick did the second one. It’ ho-hum but it’s done. We cant always bat it out of the park. Photo lab printed it way dark, had grey snow, had to run with it anyway. Have a happy wonderful creative fantabulistic Christmas.December 23, 2022 at 4:58 am #88790
Beautiful work, Susan. Your creations are always outstanding! Have a very Merry Christmas and let’s hope 2023 will bring good things to all of us. I’m feeling at loose ends; unable to focus on any particular project, though I did revise my Warwick Drive-In Closed for the Season announcement, so it reflects the Holiday. I think I’ll make a personal Holiday card as I seem to have accumulated a bunch of Christmas stuff that is calling to me. Last year I did an Advent project but didn’t start one this year so I’m now at the end of my rope!December 23, 2022 at 5:56 am #88795MicheleParticipant
Here is my daily gaming pic for today’s theme ~ Winter Solstice. I used papers and elements from a kit by Jessica Dunn at PixelScrapper. The font is AR BONNIE and I used Cass’s Dimension2 script on it. The pic in the frame is one of my avatar against a lovely winter background (I made it a few years ago for the same theme). Choosing Luminance mode on the pic layer and then duplicating it above with Normal mode and a lower opacity gave it the right hue I was looking for.December 23, 2022 at 1:08 pm #88799fiona cookParticipant
Thank you for your ideas throughout the year everyone and the tutorials & useful resources Carole. Sending my Christmas card to you all. The robin was in my garden when I was working outside.

Praying for you and your family, Cindy.December 23, 2022 at 5:03 pm #88807Corrie KinkelParticipant
Cindy, I hope for the best for you and your family!
This is one of the X-mas cards I did and with it I wish all my dear friends in the Campus a happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year with many more lovely projects to do and showcase here.
For those who are in the States and Canada and are in the middle of this blizzard: stay safe and let us know how you are coping, at least when you are not out of power. At this same moment most of us here in Europe have high temperatures about 10 Celsius and lots of rain.December 23, 2022 at 5:51 pm #88809
Wishing everyone a merry Christmas , and for sharing all your wonderful postsDecember 23, 2022 at 6:28 pm #88811

Wishing you all a Wonderful Christmas are you home or away xxDecember 23, 2022 at 6:55 pm #88814
Weather patterns are so interesting. We in Memphis, TN (middle of the USA) we had a drop of about 50 degrees in one day (yesterday – Thursday). Some here lost power briefly today (Friday), but essentially we are OK. Churches and other institutions opened their doors for those who needed a heated place to stay.
Merry Christmas to all.December 23, 2022 at 9:47 pm #88815
Mary were neighbors I am in Lonoke, before little rock Arkansas. Love everyone’s cards and stuff ITs bad cold I got some water and went to get one in my living room and they are hard rocks.

Just Prayers we dont loose power I havent been using any except the space heater and tvDecember 23, 2022 at 10:33 pm #88818Sue ThomasParticipant
Wonderful pages as always Trish, well not only Trish, but everyone is ever so creative, and talented. Positively inspiring!
It’s already Christmas Eve in many parts of the world. I used a tag which I created and submitted for last year’s Christmas countdown, or I may have posted it in the FB files. I haven’t created one these frames for ages, using the triangle tool, and fonts. Two masks. For the vertical borders I used a brush and brush variance palette. Sculpture. Also used a brush, and brush variance palette for the snow effect behind the photo. Twisted Carole’s metallic rope tube around the frame. My own word art.
The European/British Robin (little robin red breast) is probably the most well know and most popular Festive bird in the world. Unlike the North American Robin, which is a member of the Thrush family, the European Robin is a member of the fly catcher family. They are friendly little birds. I photographed many of them while I was home, as they are very common in gardens, extremely territorial, with a beautiful distinctive song, all year round.
Our weather as I posted the other day, hasn’t changed. I can tolerate arctic conditions, if it wasn’t for the wind, the wind is brutal. I have to go out to feed and muck out the horses, out of the wind it’s 10c warmer in the stable, and even warmer out of the wind and in the sun. At this time of year, horse dung is as hard as cricket balls, once I’ve used the ice chipper to release them from the concrete floor, they bounce and roll, until I shovel them up. Again I like to keep the stables clean and tidy, just like everything else. Last night’s weather image, this morning the thermometer read -51c. I have adequate clothing from head to toe.December 23, 2022 at 11:53 pm #88819
Trish knows I love her work I d/l all you U/L Trish and all you are Artists… with so much Talent
Love coming here better than Prozak 🙂December 24, 2022 at 1:20 am #88821
Ann, thank you so much for your heartwarming words, they mean a lot to me. As well as all the support you have given me. Through the Campus and learning PSP I have regained my love of photography. I like how you re-tooled the Drive In layout. I know what you mean, I’ve had a busy two months and I found myself not being able to focus on anything for anything length of time. I think I was just really tired. It’s an unsettling feeling isnt it. Here’s my Christmas card again, what it looks like in it’s finished version. Since I couldnt have the digital frame I had to resort to doing it manually. I lucked out at Michaels as they had red foil cardstock. And I had gotten these black card/envelopes at a steal and knew I wanted to do a black card for Christmas.
Merry Christmas to you and to all the people here in the campus. I wish all of you a wonderful Christmas, filled with joy. I am enjoying your Christmas wishes creations. They are all so beautiful and festive.December 24, 2022 at 2:32 am #88825EukaParticipant
I have not been around much this year – hopefully that will change in 2023! I am always amazed, impressed and inspired by the creations showcased here, I sadly lack visual inspiration while the work here by the campus members shows inspiration in spades.
I have a couple of friends who are avid knitters so tried to create a suitable card.. The actual knitting and needle I created (from a tutorial I found on the internet) and like my ‘real’ knitting there are quite a few mistakes!!.. the music sheet, candles and image are from my collection and the plaid(ish) background is mine using a gradient red/green – artistic effects – enamel with some noise added.
The Christmas Koala is also created from an old tutorial (Jemima from Artistrypsp) the photo is mine, the rest from the tutorial.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas filled with much love, family and friends, a time to relax and look forward to an amazing 2023.December 24, 2022 at 3:56 am #88827
Wishing all a happy and WARM Christmas! It is presently 2F here in New York’s Hudson Valley, but I am toasty and warm here at home. It’s unusual to lose power here as all our cables are underground. This Christmas graphic is from the Advent series last year and features Lola, my daughter’s Great Dane. She can easily join us for dinner, as you can see. 😉December 24, 2022 at 6:55 am #88830MicheleParticipant
To all who celebrate <3December 24, 2022 at 1:35 pm #88842
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!December 24, 2022 at 1:35 pm #88843Marie-ClaireParticipant
So cold Sue !, take good care that you don’t get sick, and yes we know this robin well here. He even pays a visit here on my city terrace. My terrace opens onto a piece of greenery, where there are also some trees. I am very happy about that. I also see different types of birds every day depending on the season.December 24, 2022 at 4:10 pm #88845
Still working on the Alphabet Challenge started early in 2022. I’m only on O, but plodding my way through. O is for Oklahoma. All the elements are my own except the state flag (got it on the internet), the map of Oklahoma (got it on the internet also), and the picture of the buffalo in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Preserve (got it on the internet also). Love google.December 25, 2022 at 11:42 am #88856
Carole – thank you for the gifts you give us all through the year. I am thankful to be a part of your far-flung family. Merry Christmas to you and your family – those close at hand, and those far away.December 25, 2022 at 3:53 pm #88868Anne LampParticipant
Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it. The background is a pic I took of my frosty living room window a couple of days ago and the Christmas Tree is my tree this year.December 25, 2022 at 6:39 pm #88873
Had some time finally to get back to the Labs. Wanted to get this in before the closure.

Background paper and astronaught from Pixabay. Fonts are Brites (title), The Moonlight (rest of the text), Alafyou Swirly (script on the banner). Photo is mine from the last full moon (that I could see). I did negative image on it and tweaked both to make them like day and night moons. PSP 2022 was cranky today, text tool freezing up PSP and it would crash and I’d lose what I did. Started on PSP 2022, finished on PSP 2021. When I load 2023 I will keep 2021 as my back up and take off 2022. It’s been unpredictable for me.December 26, 2022 at 6:45 am #88882kasanyParticipant
Susan Ewart: I like your banner very much:). Great background and textes very good visible on the background.December 26, 2022 at 7:22 am #88885
Susan: I LOVE that Moon Seed layout! It captures your comic sensibility with great techniques! I would like to send a copy to daughter Deb in California since her art, lately, focuses on the moon. She’ll love it like I do!! The whole concept reminds me of myself in days of yore when I had to write my first newspaper column for the Wildlife editor. I came up with the concept of starting an “I Love Snakes Anonymous” group…. 😉December 27, 2022 at 1:12 am #88905
And this is P is for Prairie.December 27, 2022 at 1:42 pm #88909
Thank you Ann and Kasany. That really means a lot, as I struggle with design and what I see in my head is not anything near what the finished product looks like. I guess that’s why it takes me weeks to do one Lab. 🤪 Ann. I’ll send you the file on messenger…if they take files that big. I would have love to have met you years ago. I love your sense of humour. I think if I knew you in person I wouldnt be working the minimum wage job I have now. I had dreamt of being a graphic designer; I was chicken, I didnt go for it. So, now I consider everyone at the campus my mentors and I decided it’s not too late learn.
