August Recipe Swap

15 August 2014 - 08:31 AM

Back to school is in full swing around these parts!  I am totally not sad that we don't have to do the back to school thing anymore!  I do love seeing all the back to school layouts in the gallery and the "first day photos" on Facebook!!


This month's theme is Grandmother's Favorites.  I know these are going to be awesome!  I need to round up some of my grandmother's recipes!



  • To participate in the Recipe Swap, please email your 4"x6" high resolution (300 dpi saved a high quality - (1200 x 1800 pixel)    Recipe Card to sg.sodscrap@gmail.com by 9 am ET Thursday August 28.  ***(please double check, I've been receiving cards in all sizes and dpi)***
  • It is easiest for me if you use your name or user name + the Recipe name (SodScrap_YummyFood) as the file name on your recipe. (I may change it to make it easier for me to track if you don't.)
  • You are welcome to submit more than one recipe.
  • After I have compiled the recipes, you will receive a link to download the recipe cards from all our participants. You must send in a card to get the link!

Please post your recipe in the Recipe Swap Gallery and post a link back in this thread!

Happy Friday everyone, it's time for another Freebie Challenge.  I'm posting for Tiza this morning as she is at the airport ready for her trip to Japan.  How much fun is that????
This week's SG Friday Special bundle can be found in the What's New section of the Boutique.  Be sure to download it soon as it's only available for a short time.
Don't forget to check out the "just released" products while you're there too. There are some beautiful new goodies in there!
You can use all or some of the freebie products to create your page.  
Please post your completed layout in the Friday Freebie Challenge Gallery.  Please post a link back in this thread.

Thursday Blog-Inspired Challenge 7/31

31 July 2014 - 07:44 AM

Wow!  Can you believe we are finishing up the month of July today??  (If you are keeping track that is 146 days until Christmas!)  Speaking of finishing up...how do you "finish" a layout?  Today's inspiration comes from this blog post by Monica:  Adding a Finishing Touch to your Layout  She gives us some great ideas on finishing touches for our layouts.  What is your favorite "finishing touch?"


Your challenge today is to create a layout and add a finishing touch. (be sure and tell us what you did!)  There are many ways to achieve this, brushes, templates, frames...the possibilities are endless!!  I can't wait to see what you creative souls come up with!  I always learn something from you all!



Here are some of my favorite "edger" templates:


Syndee's ScrapSimple Paper Templates: On Edge Burlap

Brandy's ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Edgers Biggie

Amanda's ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Essential Grungy Edges



When you finish your layout, post it to the SG Blog Challenge Layouts Gallery and post a link back in this thread.

Thursday Blog-Inspired Challenge 7/24

24 July 2014 - 07:07 AM

Happy Thursday!! 


I just love spending time on the blog here at ScrapGirls!  I really wish I had more time to spend there.  It's such a wealth of knowledge!!  Today's inspiration comes from this blog post by Angie Briggs about her layout design process.  I always LOVE Angie's layouts!!  In her process she talks about layout clusters and how she puts one together. Her clusters are some of my favorite products in the boutique, and I use them OFTEN!


Your challenge today is to create an embellishment cluster (or two or three!) on your layout!

When you finish your layout, post it to the SG Blog Challenge Layouts Gallery and post a link back in this thread.
