Newsletter Challenge - Valentines Day

Yesterday, 01:57 PM

In a few days, it will be Valentine's Day and that's what we are looking at in this week's newsletter.

:lovey-smilie: Ah, l'amour! :lovey-smilie:

Your challenge this week is to scrap a layout all about love. Not just love associated with Valentine's Day, but love in general. We want to see your layouts of anyone, or anything, you love, even fur babies.

Post your layouts in the Weekly Newsletter Challenge Gallery.


Slow Scrap - What We Love

01 February 2016 - 05:44 AM

:lovey-smilie: Ah l'amour! :lovey-smilie:

As February is the month of love, we thought our forum game this month should highlight what we all love.

 

Every day, Monday to Saturday, we will give you a step that will lead to a finished layout. The first three layouts will consist of six steps each, the last layout will consist of seven steps.

 

Members who complete the steps required in the game thread and post all 4 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 February 29th 2016 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Slow Scrap Gallery.  There are no daily time limits.

 

 

 

As this is the month of love, we want you to include a heart on each layout. It can be in the background, an embellishment, the choice is yours.

 

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.

Newsletter Challenge - Text In A Shape.

18 January 2016 - 11:28 AM

This week's Newsletter Challenge is all about text boxes for your text, specifically irregularly shaped text boxes.

So your challenge this week is to include on your layout some journalling that is in an irregular shape. No rectangles or straight lines allowed!

Post your finished layouts in the Weekly Newsletter Challenge Gallery.


Newsletter Challenge - 5 Jan

05 January 2016 - 04:42 AM

This week is the return of the Sketch Challenge.  Make sure you grab the sketch from the blog; January 3rd Challenge Winners & Back to the Basics.

This sketch is perfect for one-word titles, so I challenge you to create a layout from this sketch with your word for 2016, a one-word resolution, or one word to sum up 2015.

Scrapbooking 101 - Back To Basics

01 January 2016 - 04:53 AM

It's time to kick off the new year by going back to the basics of scrapbooking! Join us on Scrap Girls Forum for "Scrapbooking 101". This challenge focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly. When the month is over you'll have completed four layouts and hopefully had some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from January 1-30. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require message board participation or gallery posting. You will also be given some “homework” to complete!

Those who complete and upload all four layouts by 11:59 pm (ET) January 31st will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page - into a drawing for one of three $3 gift certificates.

 

Here are a couple of tutorials to help you post links and images in this thread.
