    Weekend Challenge 15 June

    Some of you maybe aware that I love to crochet, and that I am currently working on a rainbow throw. I've added more since this was taken. So I thought our challenge today would be RAINBOW. You can interpret this in anyway you wish. You could use a photo of a rainbow, rainbow colours, what about the shape of a rainbow. Have fun and post your finished layouts in the Weekend Wildcard Challenge gallery.

    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
  5. Welcome to the Scrap Girls World Tour 2019 Join us as we once again head round the world looking for inspiration to create layouts. This year could be the craziest yet! Complete layouts to gain stamps in the passport. Each stamp is worth one entry in the prize draw. At the end of the tour, we will do a random draw, and you could win one of five $5 Gift Certificates to use in the Scrap Girls Boutique. You can earn a total of 21 stamps. Each time we stop at a new location we will give you some inspiration for you to create a layout. You may also be given a task to complete. Check each day's itinerary to see what you need to do. You are free to interpret each location’s inspiration in any way you wish. There are no daily time limits, even if the post says today, tomorrow or any date. Do not post your finished layout until we tell you to, just in case something un-expected happens. That should probably be "something un-expected WILL happen". You do not have to complete a layout for every location, unless you wish to. You can combine inspirations; however, you can only receive one stamp in the passport for each layout. You have until 11:59pm (ET) on Friday 31st May to post your layouts. Any layouts or tasks posted after this time will not earn a stamp on the passport. Please be aware the passport will not be updated everyday, I aim to update it at least four times a week. I will let you know in the game thread when it has been updated. If you think you are missing a stamp please feel free to send me (ValerieT) a PM. This year's image for your signature can be found here http://scrapgirls.com/BLINKIES/Worl Tour 2019.png If you need help adding it to your signature please ask

    for those doing Project Life book, here are your prompts for June.

    PROJECT2019

    How can it be June? June Prompts Sunset We have done sunrise, so let's do sunset this month. You may have some amazing photos taken at sunset. What about the glorious colours of sunset. Or a layout about what you did/do at sunset. Excitement I am sure we all have taken a photo at some point of someone really excited, have you got one that would fit your book? Excitement can happen at anytime for any reason. A birthday, a wedding, a special meal, seeing a relative or friend. Don't forget children seem to get excited about many things. If you don't have a photo you could still journal about that excited feeling.

    I have updated the passport. Please check it in case I have missed anything. I will be doing the draw for the winners tomorrow. I am glad you have all enjoyed this year's tour. I really enjoyed putting it together this year. Up coming games for the rest of this year will be a colourful slow scrap, a wacky slow scrap and a Scrap Girls retreat.

    I am really sorry I haven't updated the passport until now. Ben has been in hospital with his epilepsy. He is fine now but today has been the first time I have had time to update the passport. If you think I have missed anything, please tell me.

  18. Join me in the chatroom at 12 noon EDT for a iNSD edition of the Weekend Wildcard Challenge. I love this time of year, with all the blossom around. I even love it when the blossom falls and scatters on the ground, it makes me think of confetti at a wedding. For today's challenge I thought we could add a scatter to our layouts. You could make your own or use a pre-made scatter. You could have flowers, leaves, gems, stone or even letters. You might want to use a brush and add a style to create yours. The choices are endless. During the chat I will give you the link to a freebie that includes a scatter that you could use. When you are finished upload your layout to the iNSD Gallery. Make sure you use Weekend Challenge in your title so that it can be identified for the challenge chase and eligible for layout of the week. Here are the ideas we talked about in the chat; use a scatter as the base for your cluster. You can add it before or after you create your cluster. Feel free to use a pre-made scatter. Create your own using a brush. Solid brushes work best. Dynamic brushes are good for this as well. Use the custom shape tool. When using a brush or shape, add a style or paper, don't forget a small shadow. Use any embellishment. Flowers, leaves and gems all work well. But don't forget letters and words they can work as well. Remember to vary the size and rotation of your brush/shape/embellishment. Remember when creating your scatter, confetti on the ground is clustered together in some places and spaced out in others. Here are some brushes and custom shapes that would work well for a scatter; ScrapSimple Tools - Shapes: Sweet 16 Hearts ScrapSimple Tools - Shapes: Build A Flower 6303Dynamic Brush Set: Confetti Scatter 6301 Dynamic Brush Set: Letter and Number Scatters Biggie Dynamic Brush Set: Prints 8301 Dynamic Brush Set: Spellbound Dynamic Brush Set: Musical Movement These are just a few I found quickly. If you have been collecting brushes for years there maybe some retired ones that will work well. Don't forget the brushes and shapes included with the program you use for scrapbooking.
  19. The opening post has been updated with the ideas we talked about and a few links to get you started.

    3rd May Look everyone. I know it is hot here in Nevada, but we are only three days into this tour and the bar has run out of every drink. There is nothing left! Let's hope we can stock up on drinks as we travel. Add some water or something blue to your layout. When you are finished post your layout in the World Tour Gallery.
