Topics I've Started

Weekend Challenge - 28 November

28 November 2015 - 04:19 AM

Thanksgiving is over for our friends in America, and we all know what that means.  :santa: Christmas is just around the corner. :santa:  And with Christmas comes more photos and layouts to scrap.

But we are not there yet, so today I challenge you to scrap your Thanksgiving photos before Christmas is upon us. If you don't celebrate Thanksgiving or you didn't take any photos (naughty, naughty), then use this opportunity to finish any unfinished layouts.

Post your layouts in the Weekend Challenge Gallery.

Weekend Challenge - 14 November

14 November 2015 - 06:36 AM

This week, we have been looking at calendars, and hopefully, you have some 2016 calendar pages completed this week.

One tip I use to complete calendar pages fast is to use just one collection. We are still in the middle of autumn here in Yorkshire, so let's add that to the challenge, too. Today, create a calendar page using one autumnal collection.

Post your layouts in the Weekend Challenge Gallery.

November Forum Game - Count Your Blessings

01 November 2015 - 04:44 AM

November is a time for counting our blessings and remembering to be thankful for all that we have. We thought we would help you scrap some of those blessings with our November Count Your Blessings Forum Game.


Tasks will be posted Monday through Saturday. The first day, you will be given a theme for your layouts. The next day you will be given something to add to your layouts and the third day you can post your layouts and talk about them in the thread. Then we will repeat the process with a new theme.

You will be prompted to create 2 layouts a week, for a total of 8 layouts.


Each layout you complete and post in the Count Your Blessings Gallery will be worth one entry in the prize draw to win one of five $5 gift certificates for the Scrap Girls Boutique.

Thursday Challenge - 8 October

08 October 2015 - 04:14 AM

Carrying on our week of honouring Breast Cancer Awareness Month, your challenge today is to use at least one pink ribbon in your layout.

It doesn't have to be the looped ribbon most of us associate with breast cancer, it can be any style of ribbon - straight, curly, or tied, but it must be pink (any shade of pink).

Post your finished layouts in the
Thursday Challenge Gallery.

Fours Seasons Slow Scrap - October Forum Game

01 October 2015 - 07:40 AM

After a journalling heavy month we thought we would take it a bit easier with a season themed Slow Scrap.


Every day, Monday to Saturday, we will give you a step that will lead to a finished layout based around that week’s season. The first layout will consist of three steps, the last four layouts will consist of six steps each.


Members who complete the steps required in the game thread and post all 5 layouts in the Slow Scrap Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $10.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.


Each completed layout posted in the Slow Scrap Gallery, up to 4 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of three $3.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.


You have until 11:59pm ET on October 31st 2015 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Slow Scrap Gallery.  There are no daily time limits.




At no point will we tell you to add your photos. It will be up to you to decide which photos to use and how many. You could do a photo-less layout, or even an art journal one. It’s up to you. Just make sure your layout fits that week's season.


You can make changes to your layout as the week progresses.


After each step we would like you to post your progress in this thread. 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 by Carla How To Post Images In The Forum to post your "progress" in the game thread.
