Topics I've Started

Weekend Wildcard Challenge - 28th May

28 May 2016 - 03:55 AM

Cricket season is in full swing here in the UK. Some of you may remember that this is the sport my eldest plays.

The kit that Lauren plays in needs to be "white". Which means it can be anything from white to a kind of creamy colour. With this in mind I thought our challenge would be to do a "white space" layout. As an added challenge try and include something white (or creamy) on your layout.

Post your completed layouts in the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery.


Weekend Wildcard Challenge - 14th May

14 May 2016 - 05:51 AM

Exam time is upon us here in the UK, and my two eldest both have exams this year. Even my youngest has assessments this month.

 

Lauren's first of 4 exams is on Thursday. Matty's first exam is on Monday, he has a total of 30 exams to sit (poor guy).

 

Lauren and Matty both like to relax by listening to music. So I thought this week we would have a music challenge. I want you to use some song lyrics as part of your journalling to help tell the story behind your photos. It can be any song, from any era and any genre.

Post your completed layouts in the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery.

Let's fill the Gallery with your musical layouts.


iNSD Wort Art Challenge 3:00pm ET

07 May 2016 - 08:49 AM

I don't know about you, but I love how versatile word art can be. Join me (ValerieT) in the chat room for tips on some uses of word art. I will even have a little challenge for you.

 

Your challenge is to use some word art on your layout, either as your journalling or your title. It would be great if you used the freebie given out in the chat, but you don't have to.


May Slow Scrap Madness

01 May 2016 - 03:27 AM

Oh no! The Welcoming Committee have gone a little crazy! Nothing new there then!

 

This month's Scrap Girls Forum game, May Slow Scrap 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 May, Monday through Saturday, a Welcoming Committee member will post a daily layout step in the game thread. The first three weeks have six steps each, the last week has eight steps. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows.

 

You will also need to post your "progress" so far each day, see below for details.

Prizes;

  • Members who complete and post all 4 layouts in the Slow Scrap Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $15.00 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 $5.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

You have until 11:59pm ET on May 31st 2016 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Slow Scrap Gallery . There are no daily time limits.

 

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 a little madness.

 

Our first task will be posted tomorrow by Shannon.


Wildcard Challenge 16 April

16 April 2016 - 03:29 AM

This week I thought we could use an image as inspiration for a layout!

Take a look at this image;

You may use any part of this image as inspiration for your layout. Maybe the colours appeal to you or the shapes or even the grungy feel. The choice is yours.

Post your finished layouts in the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
