January 30 - SPEEDBUMP

 

Hmmm I have printed some photobooks with Shutterfly & Snapfish but I would love to know which printing company would do 12 x 12 - I have never printed a 12 x 12 layout as I it's been too expensive :( Would love to know what you all use... even though I'm in Australia :) I've tried local places but too expensive until I find a good one to print a 12 x 12 book with my family layouts - that would be AWESOME to have :) The other little books I have printed have been 6 x 4 or 8 x8 but with the 8 x 8 - I couldn't use my own elements so i was disappointed with the outcome... I will continue reading tomorrow your other ideas greatly appreciated :) Thanks so much in advance ;)

January 28 - TASK 20

Choose at least 5 different embellishments to add to your page.

Requirement: All 5 embellishments must be visible on your completed page.

 

Oh darn, I've just put my embellishments on my layout, and realised there are only 3 different ones and I've just duplicated some of them. I assume that doesn't count :(/> I have to take the kids for their swimming class now so I'll have to wait and see if I have time to change it later.

Yay, I'm done, too.

It was a challenging month to stay on top of all those assignments but I did get some pages made I probably wouldn't have otherwise.

Thanks for the game.

speed bump #1

the blog I choseMy link can someone on here go and help her out.

 

That isn't the Scrap Girls blog. We are eventually going to do away with that part of the site because most people do real blogs. For the Speed Bump, you need to visit the Scrap Girls Blog.

I don't regularly print my layouts, I have done several different things one time. My plan is I will have a photobook printed for each year, so far I'm part way through 2010, 2011 and 2012; I'm doing well with 2013 so far thanks to this challenge. My husband bought me a new printer for Christmas because I got so frustrated with our old one. It is Canon Mx895 and it is wireless which is wonderful.

 

This how I've printed my layouts:

  • Printed Beth's Project Life layout at home so she can show her friends
  • Used Vistaprint to print Matthew's thank you cards (not photo quality)
  • Used Printitoncanvas for a wedding gift
  • Used Albelli for an album for my father in laws birthday

 

At the moment I share most of my layouts digitally; I upload most of my them to our own photo website (using Coppermine gallery) and then either link to the files in an email or through facebook, and I have them showing randomly on my laptop screensaver.

Task 22

 

Document emailed.

 

Thank you everyone for the motivation to keep the scrapbooking active through the month. One of my goals for this year is to finish my year book and I've made a good start with 4 pages done of January already.

January 19 - TASK 14

Drawing inspiration from task #13 use a ScrapSimple paper, embellishment, alpha or word art to create at least one item for a future layout.

Requirement: Post the name and a link to the ScrapSimple Product (if available) you used in this thread.

 

I'm re-reading task #14 and I read it as " to creat at least one item for a future layout. So I had created a word art using the colours from my inspiration in #13!! LOL I guess I was supposed to pick a scrapsimple item and colour it to match. Ops I guess I got that one wrong. Oh well I still got my pages done and that is all I need!!

 

Thanks to everyone for their challanges and to April for tallying up all the scores!! LOL

Sooo, I have two people on my chart that have finished all the tasks, but I haven't gotten an email from them yet.

There are several more who have just a few more tasks left to complete... you can do it! 2468who-do-we-appreciate.gif

Just so you know, I'm replying to your emails so you know I got them. If you completed all the tasks and sent an email and didn't get a reply, let me know!

No I don't print. My printer isn't good enough. If I ever get enough of layouts that go together I will probably make a photobook. There are some places that print square then 12x12 works. The standard size here is A4

I make a printed book of all the LOs of my grandson which I give to his mum and dad for Christmas. I have also created some small hyrid crafts where I have used my own HP printer to print out (very) small LOs onto craft card. I am doubtful that the print will last very long.

 

I have found a source of cheap high-quality photo printing and I may decide to print out more that I have done previously, but I'm ambivalent about it. as it is so easy to email thumbnails of my work to friends and family
