    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. It's time to kick off the new year with some fun and a focus on scrapbooking! Join us on Scrap Girls Forum for "Jumpstart January!" This game and challenge focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way. Some tasks will require message board participation or gallery posting. check each days task for that day's requirements. Upload your layouts to the Hodge Podge Gallery. Those who complete all tasks and upload all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Shop. Each person who completes a layout will be entered, once for each completed challenge page, into a drawing for one of three $3 gift certificates. You have until 11:59pm ET on January 31st 2019 to complete the tasks and post your layouts to the Hodge Podge Gallery. There are no daily time limits. After each task you can post your progress in this thread if you wish. PLEASE NOTE; THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT. Here is how; 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 How To Post Images In The Forum to post your "progress" in the game thread.

    January Prompts Part Two Clothes An essential item I know but we often love to show off new or fancy clothes. Create a layout that really showcases an item or two of clothing. Quote We all love a good quote to use on our layouts. Can you find one to go with your project and use it on a layout? Remember; You don't have to use these prompts for your layouts, they are just here for inspiration. You only need to complete one layout a month to be in the draw for the prizes.

    I am loving everyone's ideas for this year, and it's great to see so many of you interested. I've done one layout, but I want to do at least one more this month.

    I will be creating a book about our holidays. Every year we have been to the same place and I think it will be great to turn all those photos into a book my kids can look back on for years to come. I will probably use templates but I am not going to limit myself to just one or two collections. As for style, I will choose what ever fits the photos I am using for each page. I am thinking friends for my first layout.
  25. Jumpstart January is back! Join us for a month of scrapping fun and speedbumps.
