    PROJECT2019

    Have you ever wanted to create a scrapbook about an amazing holiday? Maybe you have photos from a wedding that you want to turn into a book? Or have you always wanted to create a heritage book detailing your family history? What about creating a book about yourself -- something that you can enjoy for the rest of your life but also leave to your loved ones so they can glimpse what life was like in your generation? For all these reasons (and a whole lot more), we want to invite you to join us on a year-long challenge where we promise to help you create a memorable book (or two!). Now is the time to get in on the ground floor of... Project2019 is our newest approach to help you get your memories on pages and get your pages in a book! We know how hard it is to make time to scrap your memories (we all lead busy lives!), so we are here to help you carve out some time all year long to do something that will last for years and years to come. By participating in Project2019, you can create your layouts and book about anything you choose. Your book could be about a holiday, wedding, heritage, you, or it can even be a Project 365/Project 52/Project life book. The choice is yours -- because the memories are yours, too! Only you know how you want to record them. Twice a month, we'll give you prompts and ideas to help you create your layouts. For those of you who want to do the Project Life style books, we will post weekly themes at the beginning of each month. It's up to you which prompts and ideas you use. You can use them all or just one. Prizes: Monthly: Everyone who uploads a layout in the Project2019 Gallery will be in a drawing for one $3 Gift Certificate that will be given away monthly. Quarterly: Winners will be randomly drawn from members who post layouts in the Project2019 Gallery. Each layout uploaded is worth one entry, up to a maximum of 5 per member per month, with the winner taking home a Collection Biggie valued at $9.99. Yearly: Everyone who uploads one layout a month for the entire year to the Project2019 Gallery will be entered into a prize drawing for one person to win a $25 Scrap Girls Gift Certificate and a $40 Shutterfly Gift Certificate. But wait, there's more! If your name isn't drawn for the big prize, you still win a $10 Gift Certificate just for participating by uploading one layout a month! Got questions? Contact ValerieT (scrapgirlvalerie@gmail.com) and we'll help you get in on the ground floor of this year's plan! We have two buttons that you can add to your signature if you wish. You can use either or both, the choice is yours. http://scrapgirls.com/BLINKIES/project2019A.jpg http://scrapgirls.com/BLINKIES/project2019B.jpg
  2. Oh no! March Layout Madness is back! This month's Scrap Girls Forum game, March Layout Madness, is designed to help you get more scrapbook pages done with a series of simple steps that add up to a finished page at the end of each week. But watch out, some of the tasks may be trickier or down right crazy ! When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way. Throughout March, Monday through Saturday a Welcoming Committee member will post a daily layout step in the game thread. Layout one will have eight steps Layouts two, three and four will have six steps each Prizes: Members who complete and post all 4 layouts in the Slow Scrap Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $10.00 Scrap Girls Shop Gift Certificates. Each completed layout posted in the Slow Scrap Gallery, up to 4 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of three $3.00 Scrap Girls Shop Gift Certificates. You have until 11:59pm ET on March 31st 2019 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Slow Scrap Gallery. There are no daily time limits. You can post your daily progress if you wish, but this is not a requirement. Here is how to post your "progress" in this game thread. Make sure you save your layout as a PSD/layered file first. Save your layout as a .JPEG at 72ppi with a size of 4 x 4 inches (288 x 288 pixels) this is smaller than you would normally save for the web. Follow the first part of this tutorial by Carla How To Post Images In The Forum to post your "progress" in the game thread. So why not join us for a month of fun and madness?

You could use a photo with a reflection in it, or you could create a reflection somewhere on your layout. Have fun with this one.
