International Scrapbook Day - 2017

40 posts in this topic

Are you ready to Party? International Scrapbook Day is Saturday May 6th and we will be celebrating all weekend long. This year we have an extra fun thing to celebrate - our new website!! Over the past few months we've updated both the look and backend infrastructure of our website, blog and forum. So we are taking the opportunity to introduce you to some of our favorite new features of the site.

Here is how you can get in on all the action!

Scavenger Hunt 
We have a fun scavenger hunt that will tour you around the coolest new features of our site, and will end with a special iNSD freebie download. Don't worry - it should take you less than 5 minutes to complete. Click here to get started

Blinkie & Badge Bonanza

We've created a whole bunch of new "bling" that matches our updated site that you can add to your Forum signature. We really want to see these blinkies and badges get used, so we've sweetened the pot! Email us before/after screenshots of your Forum signature featuring the new bling and we'll send you back a $1 gift certificate! Email us at hello@scrapgirls.com before May 9th to grab this deal.  

Challenge Schedule:
We have a day of challenges planned the celebrate our new site. We will be giving a $5 gift certificate out for each challenge, and if you complete all 4 you will be entered into the drawing for a $25 gift certificate! Will be posting the challenge threads throughout the day so check the forum at the scheduled time.

9:00 a.m. ET - Tutorial Challenge 
We've built a terrific new Tutorial Index to help you easily find all the best content on our site. And we keep adding new tutorials to it each week. We are especially proud of our "Getting Started" section because we re-did all these tutorials to help newbies. For this challenge we'd love to have you take a look at this tutorial about Reasons to Digital Scrapbook and create a layout showing us your favorite reason to go digi.
 
12:00 a.m. ET - Siggy Challenge 
Our new Forum is more than just a pretty face. We also did a major software upgrade that makes using the Forum much easier. One thing we are really in love with is how much easier it is to upload images. With this challenge we are encouraging you to give it a try, by creating a new siggy (forum signature) and uploading it following these directions. We also would love to encourage you to update your blinkies today and get rid of your broken links. Here's how.
 
3:00 p.m. ET -Color Challenge
If you'd grown tired of all the purple on the ScrapGirls site we have news for you. It's gone! We've got a fresh, modern new color palette across our entire site created by our designer Syndee Nuckles. We are so over the moon about this new look that we are focusing this challenge around using our new color palette. 
 
6:00 p.m. ET - Tutorial Challenge 
We want to finish up the day celebrating why we are here. Without scrapbooking there would be no ScrapGirls! We have the perfect tutorial on our lovely new blog to inspire a layout for iNSD - Scrap What You Love! Go crazy on this challenge and make a page that expresses everything you love about scrapbooking!
 
And of course it wouldn't be a ScrapGirl's party without a great free kit with purchase and huge sale!

Really looking forward to this event - having just returned from a two week trip to Australia & New Zealand, I'd like to jump start putting my memory book together from the vacation! Also, my signature is pretty old, so an update sounds great!

Since the raindrops are still coming down, I'll be able to play today. If it had stopped, then I was going to be put to work. Thank you Mother Nature!!

Just completed the Scavenger Hunt and learned some cool new features that I definitely want to check out! Thanks!!

But are these chats?  I don't see a chat room link!

I could be wrong but I think they are just having challenges. Sad.

It is a shame we are not having chats, it doesn't look like it.
