March Layout Madness 2020

Recommended Posts

:wobbly-eyes: :wobbly-eyes: Oh no! March Layout Madness is back! :wobbly-eyes: :wobbly-eyes:

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 :newangel:!  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. 

  • Layouts one, two and three will have six steps each
  • Layout four will have eight steps

 

Prizes:

  • Each completed layout posted in the Slow Scrap Gallery, up to 4 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of four $5.00 Gift Certificates for the Scrap Girls Shop.

You have until 11:59pm ET on March 31st 2020 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? :bouncing-frog:
