Wow, Annie! You have been busy. Love the card and papers.
Here is the subway art I did first. Haven’t done others yet but have several ideas brewing.
Probably should have added a frame…to make it more easily seen.November 20, 2020 at 5:57 pm #49494
Thanks so much dear Lynda. I am happy to have made your morning! ;DNovember 20, 2020 at 6:05 pm #49495
Oh Bonnie! A heartfelt subway art page which put a giggle in my day. Darkness stands out because of the color you used and chaos stands out because of the funky font you used … says it all my friend, exactly how Bonnie Ballentine feels about life without Pickleball! How to get a message across with subway art … love it Bonnie.
Happy you liked my card and papers, much appreciated my friend. ;DNovember 20, 2020 at 10:58 pm #49513
Hello Scrapbook Campus Friends. For the subway art I decided to go with a list of things that make me happy. Thanks for takin a peek!November 21, 2020 at 3:35 am #49529CristinaParticipant
Wow, I haven’t been here in a while, and what a lovely surprise!
Ann, Lynda, Corrie, Minka, Art, Annie, and Bonnie, you all created inspiring and spectacular work.November 21, 2020 at 8:08 am #49533
Subway art. This was fun to do. Mind you I like word art, and playing with fonts.November 21, 2020 at 8:13 am #49535
Still working on ecards. A snowy scene with a Great Horned Owl in the barn window, makes for a perfect Xmas card.November 21, 2020 at 8:23 am #49536
It has been several days since I was on here last. Everyone has been ever so busy, so many creative and inspiring pages, covering so many different subjects. Annie, I love your card. It’s wonderful that it only takes one of Carole’s tutorials on creating an envelope, to open up so many different ways to create and showcase cards with envelopes. Carole’s tutorials and masterclasses are stepping stones for bigger and better layouts.November 21, 2020 at 12:16 pm #49540Art KuiperParticipant
The thing I like most about these subway art entries, is that they all have a positive message. We need more of them in this difficult time. Well done Ann S, Bonnie, Annie, and Sue.November 21, 2020 at 12:38 pm #49541
Lovely subway art Annie, and not necessarily in that order lol.
Thank you Art for your kind words.November 21, 2020 at 3:01 pm #49547
Sorry been so absent and hope I managed to get everyone. All the work you have done is so very special and delightful to see. On a side note, our granddaughter is graduation from university next month (after only 3 years) and will be getting a bachelor’s in secondary education and a bachelor’s in English pedagogy. So very proud of her.
Sue…Love colder weather. If I had my way we would move to Alaska, LOL. Your family must really enjoy getting your very special Christmas cards. Fantastic job on the grouse, Xmas card 3-1, sparrow, bluejay, and owl. In awe of your subway art.
Ann Seeber…Lovely pic of the mockingbird. So lucky you can take the pictures from your window. Wow, what a great job on the extraction and awesome layout. Cute pictures of the titmouse birds. Love the first one. Looks like they are checking you out. A darling November page. I tend to use the kits I have purchased over the years (mainly to make the purchase worthwhile, LOL). Nice work on your fall visitors page. The colors work well together and evoke a very autumnal feeling. Loving the subway art and the quotes you chose. I really need to try it sometime.
Fiona…Great job with the effects from the Beautiful Mess master class. Can’t wait to see how you use them.
Annie…Thank you so very much Annie. Such a cute Christmas card and envelope. You did great. Fabulous papers using the script. Looks lovely on both the silver and gold background. You have certainly been busy. Love how you chose to make your subway art.
Lynda…Awesome ornament. Really like how you used it with Carole’s seamless script. Makes a beautiful paper. The bells make a perfect paper too. Seems you are enjoying the flower script. They are so nice.
Corrie…Hopefully by this time your hubby has returned home and recuperating nicely. Beautiful flowers. I may have to break down and get the script.
Minka…Lovely calendar page. Gorgeous picture you used.
Art…Great way to use the subway art. Nicely done.
Bonnie…Your subway is nicely done and it doesn’t necessarily need a frame.November 21, 2020 at 3:35 pm #49557

Thanks Cristina! ;DNovember 21, 2020 at 6:24 pm #49565
Dear Sue, a very clever piece of subway art. I love how you took a phrase and manipulated it to fill the page. Hat off to you Hun … oh, and I love your card to boot especially the way the snowman is sneaking a peek at the owl … good fun. ;DNovember 21, 2020 at 6:31 pm #49568
Karon this is a very effective page. The starburst background really draws the eyes to the centerpiece, very clever. Overall it is a page that any Star Wars fan would be proud of! Thanks for your praise on my work … always appreciated my friend.November 21, 2020 at 6:38 pm #49571
Sue you are true and correct … it only takes one of Carole’s tutorials to inspire creative work. And, since I consider you to be a master at the art of creating Christmas cards I am stoked that you liked my card. Thank you very much my friend. ;DNovember 21, 2020 at 6:44 pm #49573
Your appreciation is … of course … appreciated! Thanks Art … just being silly this morning. Any words of encouragement are always welcomed. Perhaps 2021 will be kinder to us humans as long as we are kind to it. ;DNovember 22, 2020 at 6:21 am #49605
Hi Scrapbook Campus. Played around with another Alicia Mujica tube today. Scrap kit was Natural Breeze by Carena from DigiDesignResort, layout by Elif Sahin from Pixel Scrappers, background paper was created following Carole’s tut Simple Blocking and using the papers from the scrap kit. Font for the title is Batik Deco. Thanks for takin a peek my friends. ;DNovember 22, 2020 at 9:00 am #49606
Karon, thank you ever so much for your very kind comments on my ecards. I create them for 5×7 photo paper, ideal size for the recipients to print them off. They do love the cards I make, they look forward every year, as no two cards are ever the same. I doubt they realize the amount of time, and thought that goes into them unlike a fellow PSPer. I often add in a letter these words, The card I have created especially for you, which doesn’t have any monetary value, saying that, it’s much more than a card, the love, thought and time that went into creating it, is priceless.November 22, 2020 at 9:10 am #49608
A different envelope this time, rounded edges. Carole has an envelope tutorial in the creative scrap. Once you get to grips with the basics, you can be a adventurous, and creating all sorts of different envelopes. The same applies to all of Carole’s tutorials. Carole also has a postage stamp tutorial. Again I used the beautiful mess masterclass techniques for the background paper. I created the frame, added Carole’s Xmas lights tubes, and some elements. The robin is my own, which I extracted from a photo. The background paper was created using a selection from the Junco, native sparrow photo, fading foreground in white gradient, with snow added. In case you can’t read the text at the bottom, it reads, Christmas is not so much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.November 22, 2020 at 9:26 am #49609
Thank you ever so much Annie, for your uplifting, complimentary comments on the subway art. I love creating word art, and playing with fonts, to embellish frames, and borders. Your comment on my Xmas card making overwhelmed me, in a wonderful way, I thank you my dear friend. I’m fortunate to live in a place where winters, transform into a winter wonder land, of ice and snow, and creatures that inspire me. You are entering your summer months, which are now are a distant memory for me. I embrace winter here, even though it lasts almost 7 months. I love the paper you created, the simple block tutorial is cool, I love the darker colours used, yet the whole layout resonates hot summer days to me. That is how I perceived your page. All the pages summitted on here, are a feast for the eyes.November 22, 2020 at 9:37 am #49611
Due to the Covid virus, Canada post recommended that all International post be sent much sooner this year. I’ve sent my calendars, and cards. In this page I used masks, and extractions, the background paper is a photo which I blurred, and lowered the opacity. White tail deer.November 22, 2020 at 9:40 am #49613

Lynda, I made the red flower with a ribbon from cas-CustomKitRibbons- Sample07. It was a freebie sometime ago and don’t remember exactly when. Sorry to answer just now, my time is very limited with my husband still in hospital. It should have been a short stay, about 3 days but due to complications it are already 12 days. It is not life threatening but very disappointing and he is not recovering enough to come home. So I’m not visiting the Campus much in these days.
Thanks everybody for their comments!November 22, 2020 at 4:54 pm #49637Ann SeeberParticipant
I decided to revise an old layout called Good Deeds which I used the topic of the adoption of my big black tomcat, Adam, as my “good deed” because he had been shunted aside and ignored for 2 years at the animal shelter. I completely revised the journaling (this was part of the “stories” assignments back at the end of August) I added the official Pine Island welcome sign and I revised the photo of Adam at the top which originally had a wide, brown matte and frame. Just diddling around! ;DNovember 22, 2020 at 5:53 pm #49642
Thanks Annie. Darth B is now 16 and still a Star Wars fan. Love the Brigitte layout. So very cute.
Sue, more delightful cards. I adore the addition of stamps to the Let it Snow card.
Ann Seeber, what a wonderful “Good Deed” and beautiful layout. Adam is surely lucky to have you.November 22, 2020 at 10:16 pm #49659
What else can I say other than your cards, envelopes and pages are truly beautiful Sue … your work always gets a huge thumbs up from me … and is a sheer delight to view.
Our Spring is all but finished here in Australia and the heat is already cranking up. Windows and doors remain closed and fans circulate at top speed. Curtains remain closed too otherwise the heat off the windows intensifies the heat inside. Not many cool spots to be found and no rain to date. The yard already looks like a desert with only the weeds thriving. This extended drought period seems to be affecting the Wide Bay Burnett region only as other parts of Australia have experienced flooding. Go figure, climate is an amazing thing. Funny though, I do love it in kinda the same way as Precious Ramotswe loves Botswana. I don’t know whether you have read any of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series but they really are innocent and precious. Author is Alexander McCall Smith.
Prattled enough when all I really meant to say was … YOUR WORK IS WONDERFUL!November 22, 2020 at 10:39 pm #49660
I love this page Ann, well done. Adam is a very lucky cat, paw out at just the right time … I think it was definitely a signal … hey, I’m here stop looking at anything else and take me home! I have a black cat named Izzy and I agree with you about their intelligence as she is a master at the art of manipulation! ;DNovember 22, 2020 at 10:41 pm #49661
Karon and Sue, thank you very much for your lovely comments on my Brigitte page, always appreciated my friends.November 22, 2020 at 10:53 pm #49664
Thank you so much Annie, it’s much appreciated and means a great deal to me. I do the same as you, as our summers are very hot, 30c plus at its hottest. I close curtains, cook outside. I have 5 slow cookers, which live in the garage during the summer months. Jacket potatoes, stews, rice pudding, shredded beef and pork, is delicious cooked in a slow cooker for up to 8 hrs or more depending on the size of the joint. Anything to keep the house cool. We have fans and central air conditioning. Even the horses have fans in the stable, and heated watering bowls for the winter, for when the temps drop to 30 below. I posted a page in the November random page too. You take care, and stay cool.
