Weekend Challenge 24 January

24 January 2015 - 03:30 AM

Have you noticed how the number and type of photos we take has changed over the years.  Twenty years ago we would only get the camera out for special photos and we tried not to waste film.  Today we can pull out our phones and take photos whenever the whim takes us and snap as many as we want. 

 

Now I don't know about you but my phone is full of strange and often boring photos. 

So today I would like us to honour these mundane, boring or bizarre photos. 

 

Find the most boring or strangest photo on your phone and create a layout with it. 

Tell us why you took the photo and the story behind it.

 

Post your layouts in the Weekend Challenge Gallery.

 

I can't wait to see what you all create.


Weekend Challenge

Hi everyone, it's time for this week's weekend challenge

 

How often have you just used a name or place as the title of your layout? I know I have.

So today I challenge you to create a layout using your favourite photo from last year and then pick just one word for your title.

Look at your layout and photo and find a single word that holds meaning for you to be your title.

 

Post your layouts in the Weekend Challenge Gallery.


Jumpstart January 2015

01 January 2015 - 06:36 AM

It's time to kick off the new year with some fun and a focus on scrapbooking! Join us on Scrap Girls Forum for "Jumpstart January!" This game and challenge focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from January 1-31. 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. This year there will be less emphasis on individual tasks, and more on completing layouts.

Those who complete and upload all the 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.

Welcome to the last colour challenge of 2014.

 

:xmastree: I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas. :xmastree:

 

:snow_laugh: I am posting today from a snowy Yorkshire. :snow_cool:

:snow_cool: Yes we've had snow, the first in nearly two years. :snow_cool:

:snow_cool: Only a couple of inches but the kids are happy. :snow_laugh:

 

Today's colours come from Elisha's wonderful new Festivitea Collection.

It's a really simple swatch today, so I would like you to use at least two of these colours.

 

Post your finished layouts in the Saturday Color Challenge Gallery.

Saturday Colour Challenge - 20 Dec

20 December 2014 - 02:36 AM

Good morning everyone.  It's dark, damp and miserable here this morning in Yorkshire.  At least it's not cold.

 

Kids have finished school so there will be chaos here in about 30 mins when they wake up. Better get this posted fast!

 

I thought this week we would take a break from Christmas colours and instead use this month's wonderful club for our colour inspiration.  Flights of Fancy Collection Biggie designed by Jennifer.

I love the colours Jennifer used, especially the blues.

 

So here is your challenge, create a layout using at least three of these colours.  Post your finished layouts in the Saturday Color Challenge Gallery.

 

 

:santa: I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas. :santa:

:xmastree: I will be back next week with your last Colour challenge of 2014. :xmastree:
