March Layout Madness 2017

01 March 2017 - 05:00 AM

:wobbly-eyes: Oh no!  March Layout Madness is back! :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 :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. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows.


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



  • Members who complete and post all 5 layouts in the March Layout Madness Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $15.00 Scrap Girls Shop Gift Certificates.
  • Each completed layout posted in the March Layout Madness Gallery, up to 4 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of three $5.00 Scrap Girls Shop Gift Certificates.


You have until 11:59pm ET on March 31st 2017 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the March Layout Madness 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.

March ATC Digital Swap/Challenge

01 March 2017 - 04:52 AM

As I am sure you can appreciate, I haven't thought much about this month's inspiration.


This idea came to me as I took Kiahna to school this morning. Hope you like it.


My MIL is an avid gardener, and is very good at it (unlike me). So your inspiration this month is .........GARDEN. As always you can take this in any direction you wish, have fun with it.


If you have never created an ATC, these instructions may be helpful: ATC Instructions


You may create as many cards as you would like, just please remember to sign and date each card.


Upload them to the Artist Trading Cards - Digital & Hybrid Gallery then email the full resolution copy (750 x 1050 pixels at 300 ppi) to me at scrapgirlvalerie@gmail.com.


Your cards are due to me by Friday, 31st March 2017.


If anyone has any suggestions for future themes/topics, please let me know.


Tuesday Challenge 21st February

21 February 2017 - 05:52 AM

This week's newsletter is all about winter.

The thing I love most about winter is snow and the kids being able to get outside and create snowmen.

So your challenge is to use at least two snowmen inn your layout. They can be in the photos, the embellishments, the papers or any combination you wish. Be creative.

Post your finished layouts in the Weekly Newsletter Challenge Gallery.

Tuesday Challenge 7th February

07 February 2017 - 04:04 AM

Today's newsletter looked at children's layouts.

I thought for today's challenge we could take this idea a little further. I would like you to create a layout about an adult with a fun photo. Maybe playing with children, being silly, or even showing their "inner child".

Post your finished layouts in the Weekly Newsletter Challenge Gallery.

February 2017 - Use Your stash Month

01 February 2017 - 03:49 AM

For February we are going to encourage you to create more than just layouts with your supplies.


Don't worry we will be creating at least one layout a week, along with other projects.


Each layout or project will normally last three days, with tasks being given on each day. The tasks for each layout will be straight forward, there will be no twists or tricks.


Each completed layout is worth one entry in the prize draw. At the end of the month, we will do a random draw, and you could win one of five $5 Gift Certificates to use in the Scrap Girls Boutique.


  • There are no daily time limits.
  • You do not have to complete every layout/project, unless you want to.
  • Any layouts posted after 11:59pm (ET) on 28th February will not be included in the prize draw.
