It is a new month and new projects.
Show off what you are working on in June, be it a scrapbook page, a collage, a tutorial, or anything else you want.
We are curious and want to see, learn, and get inspired.
These threads are quickly becoming a fantastic source of inspiration, support, and friendship. Keep them coming!June 2, 2021 at 2:42 pm #58774Anne Lamp
I was working on this for the Word Art Challenge but just finished it today. I got this quote off of a calendar page years ago and have always liked it. I have the original page taped to the side of my P C tower where I know I will see it everyday.June 3, 2021 at 10:04 pm #58812
When the cows have calved in early Spring and the calves are strong enough to travel, they are trailed lots of miles by cowboys (like you see in western films. Saskatchewan ranchers are still very western in their ways) over vast areas of open native grasslands to their summer pastures. At that time of year, mid-late spring, the air is filled with the aroma of the Prairie Sage. I could smell it as I was creating this page. I used the frame I created and posted for download on facebook. The background paper is the photo, blurred and lowered the opacity. Negative effect label.June 3, 2021 at 10:53 pm #58814
Anne, love the word art. I haven’t worked up the courage to try yet…
Sue, love the frame and the layout…and they white tail deer…they are a favorite of mine.
I must have sat for 20 minutes watching this bird. I love hawks, even if they hunt other birds/songbirds. I couldn’t get close and these photos are the best I could get with my point and shoot camera with telephoto.

I love this template by Jenn Maddock. It was a freebie but I cannot find it on the web. I want to share the link but I cannot.

Cicadas are singing louder each day. I really enjoy the sound. These are the 17 year variety…they emerge every 17 years. We don’t seem to have as many as we did 17 years ago. For some reason they are called Brood X. The large X was a place holder for the template but it served a better purpose for this layout. I downloaded a picture of a cicada…my photos don’t show the true colors. I took all of the colors for the layout from the cicada…except the green from the grass. The photo on the lower left is not mine.

I had fun with Cassel’s foliage frames and enlisted the help of one of my fur-kids for the finishing touches. I resized it, but as it in a rectangular shape, I am not sure if it will upload correctly.June 4, 2021 at 12:08 pm #58827

I was checking out Creative Fabrica’s sight today and found this wallpaper (and others) and the world flat map in today’s Daily Gifts. I liked them so much I though I would create something so I could share this info today. I know the world thing would show up better on a more solid background, but I liked the looks of this.June 4, 2021 at 12:14 pm #58829
Bonnie, I love what your did with this template.Very serene.June 4, 2021 at 3:21 pm #58831
Bonnie , I created a copy of your template by Jenn Maddock and added macro photos of mushrooms that grow in my yard. Thanks for the inspiration.June 4, 2021 at 4:32 pm #58832
Sue, Beautiful job and great story about the deer. Thanks for sharingJune 4, 2021 at 6:08 pm #58833
Lynda, you did a great job on the frame template, an the lab tutorials. Always something new to learn. Thank you for the kind words on my deer layout, all compliments mean a great deal to me.June 4, 2021 at 7:07 pm #58834
Thank you, Lynda! I love the “copy” you made…great job!June 4, 2021 at 8:06 pm #58835
Sue, You deserve the kudos.
Bonnie, Thanks for the inspirationJune 6, 2021 at 4:23 pm #58847Corrie KinkelParticipant
I too have looked at the Splatter Portret Tutorial that Lynda mentioned earlier and this is the result. The title is in Dutch because I don’t know an english word for it. It is a stone jar that was previously used for preserving foods/veggies. I have this old one that comes through the family for a very long time and have used it for different purposes. It has been an umbrella stand, pot for big house plants and now serves on my patio where we just planted some bedding plants in it.June 6, 2021 at 6:16 pm #58850
Nice job Corrie. Be careful leaving the pot outside. It might not weather well. Hate to lose that. I looked it up and found this on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DelftwareJune 6, 2021 at 6:20 pm #58851Karon DeyParticipant
Hi all. I will probably not be on much for a while as my son’s wife died recently unexpectedly. I have been in SC the last two weeks and on the phone with him every day since getting back. I will try to pop in and look at all the wonderful layouts you all have done.
Anne: Now you have a beautiful copy of your quote to hang up somewhere special. Nice job on the places you would like to see.
Sue: Loving the White Tail Deer layout.
Bonnie: Wonderful pictures of the red shouldered hawk. Down by the riverside is fantastic, the addition of the music notes is great. Interesting information about the cicadas and great pictures.
Anita: Awesome foliage frame to showcase your furbaby.
Lynda: Fantastic job on the lab lessons. Fabulous mushroom layout and really like how you used a photo of mushrooms as the background.
Corrie: Lovely layout of your stone jar. The soft pastel colors of the background really make the picture standout.June 6, 2021 at 6:50 pm #58852
Karon, I am so sorry to hear about your DIL. Holding you, your son and family in prayer.
Thank you for your comments. Like Annie…always appreciated.
Where in SC? That is my home…I live in Virginia now but South Carolina will always be home and first in my heart.June 6, 2021 at 7:27 pm #58854Annie TobinParticipant
Sue, Bonnie, Anita, Lynda, and Corrie, thanks very much to all of you. This campus has become a world of knowledge and I am enjoying every bit of it. I am learning all about fauna, flora, history etcetera and all of you have contributed. Beautiful photography by Lynda and Sue. Lynda, the info you provided on mushrooms was fascinating and I love the quote. Your result for L11M6 is delightful … I was playing around with it yesterday so will have to showcase my effort. I see you helped Corrie with regards to info on her handed down pot. This is what is so amazing about this campus, we are all here to learn about digital scrapbooking and the rest is a huge bonus. Bonnie I see that you are branching from your beloved pickelball … I love the info you provided on the red shoulder hawk and the cicadas, thank you.
Karon, so very sorry to hear about the loss of your DIL. Sad to say but endurance is the only way to get through it all. You will be a rock for your son and I send love and best wishes your way … and thank you for your delightful compliments, always appreciated Hon.June 6, 2021 at 9:09 pm #58862
LOL @ Annie…actually, I am working on a pickleball page as I type…coming soon…at a campus near you!June 6, 2021 at 10:45 pm #58870
Karon, I’m ever so sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter-in -law.
Thank you so much for your kind words, they mean a great deal to me. Take care, I’m sure you will be of great comfort to your son during this difficult time.June 7, 2021 at 9:36 am #58874Sheila HoggParticipant
Lovely work ladies.
Karon, such sad news from you and so sorry for your Son. All condolences to you all from this side of the pond.June 7, 2021 at 10:20 am #58875Susan Ewart
Sue this is so beautiful and inspiring! As a newbie I really appreciate your instruction on how you did this. Stunning photography.

Bonnie and Lynda, I’m blown away at how beautiful your pages are. What inspiration for me! Thank you for sharingJune 7, 2021 at 2:46 pm #58881Corrie KinkelParticipant
Karon thank you for your comments and I’m sorry to hear of your loss!
Lynda thanks for the info and I’m not one bit concerned leaving my pot outside. It is made of very thick stone ware, not of the thin stuff that most Delftware is made of. This one was made for heavy duty and survived over a 100 years by now! I should add however that our winters are mostly reasonably mild.June 8, 2021 at 10:34 am #58884
Corrie, Yes, if the pot has survived this long you probably have no worries. I do love the Delftware. It seems ageless.June 8, 2021 at 10:39 am #58886
This is a family tree mock-up from the most recent Master Class , Heritage Scrapbooking. Since my sister is the family tree keeper I sent it to her.June 8, 2021 at 11:29 am #58887CasselKeymaster
Lynda, you can mirror the left side so both sides will come from the center.June 8, 2021 at 12:33 pm #58888CristinaParticipant
I was absent for just a few days, and this thread is already full of wonderful work.
Great job, Anne, Sue, Bonnie, Anita, Lynda, and Corrie! It is always a pleasure to come here and see what you all are doing!
I am working on a layout to practice tutorials from the Lab, but it is only halfway, but I’ll get there. : )
