Topics I've Started

High Noon Crop

17 December 2014 - 01:52 AM

Join me, April Showers, each Wednesday at 9 am Pacific, 10 am Mountain, 11 am Central and Noon Eastern Time for the High Noon Crop. These crops are designed to allow you to work on your own photos and themes simply giving participants a one hour goal and a fun, new challenge each week.

On December 17th we'll do a Quote Challenge! Create a layout using a meaningful, inspiring or funny quote. You can use it in place of journaling, or you use a beloved quote as a starting point for your journaling. There are quotes in many of the collections and brush sets too. Any quote is OK!

Create your layout and upload it to the special High Noon Crop and Challenge Gallery. You'll be amazed what you can get done in just one hour, but there is no High Noon Sheriff timing you! Hope to see you in the chat room!

Tree of Doom

Here’s how to play the game:

  • Find the products used to create this tree in the Scrap Girls Boutique.

  • Send your answers to games@scrapgirls.com by 11:59 p.m. (ET), Thursday, December 31.

  • Please include the product name and its web address link for each item you find. Any product that includes the specific item will count as a correct answer.

  • Use the subject line “Christmas Tree of Doom” for your email entry; include your name and your Scrap Girls Forum user name, if available.

The Christmas tree card above is made using 14 different papers. The paper designers include:

  • Amanda Fraijo-Tobin

  • Angie Briggs

  • Brandy Murry

  • Elisha Barnett

  • Ginny Whitcomb

  • Jennifer Ziegler

  • Julie White

  • Kim Meeder

  • Laurel Lakey

  • Marlene Peacock

  • Melissa Renfro

  • Sherrie Piegdon

  • Syndee Nuckles

  • Thao Cosgrove

The Christmas tree card has 34  embellishments. Those designers include:

  • Amanda Fraijo-Tobin

  • Ang Campbell

  • Angela Blanchard

  • Angie Briggs

  • Armi Custodio

  • Brandy Hackman

  • Brandy Murry

  • Cheri Thieleke

  • Cherise Oleson

  • Cindy Rohrbough

  • Doris Castle

  • Durin Eberhart

  • Elisha Barnett

  • Emily Abramson

  • Ginny Whitcomb

  • Jacqui Smith

  • Jan Ransley

  • Jennifer Ziegler

  • Jo Corne

  • Katherine Weaver

  • Kerry Veale

  • Kim Meeder

  • Laura Louie

  • Laurel Lakey

  • Lettering Delights

  • Mandy Steward

  • Marlene Peacock

  • Melissa Renfro

  • Paula Wright

  • Sarah Batdorf

  • Shalae Tippets

  • Sheri Johnson

  • Sherrie Piegdon

  • Syndee Nuckles

Don't panic! You don't have to find them all to play the game. (Whew!) But anyone who DOES get them all correct will automatically win a $10 Gift Certificate! No problem, you've got it. This means more than one person can win a $10 gift certificate - because anyone this motivated deserves a prize! The winners of these gift certificates can get in on the rest of the game, too!

For all players:

  • If you get 25 or more correct answers, you will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Gift Certificate!

  • If you get 10-24 correct answers, you will be entered into a drawing for a $10 Gift Certificate!

  • If you get 5-9 correct answers, you will be entered into a drawing for a $5 Gift Certificate!

Does that sound possible? Hope so!

HINT: The papers for the background and star are both included; the drop shadows are not. Everything is very straight-forward: You’ll be looking for papers and embellishments only (except for that Lettering Delights product which is obviously a font). There are no ScrapSimple products, brushes, or tools.

If you aren't up to playing the game, enjoy the pretty Christmas card and see if you can recreate it using your favorite papers and embellishments! Have fun!

I did a layout for a Christmas collection that will be coming out this week that uses a few of my decor colors, so I'm going to use if for this challenge. Unfortunately, I can't post it until it shows up in the boutique! Wish I could give you a little teaser of it because I just love it. :D


2014 Cookie Recipe Card Exchange

29 November 2014 - 12:00 AM

CookieExchange.png

It's time for our 9th Annual Cookie Recipe Card Exchange and you're invited! We have a special, free recipe card template to help you get started. We love cookies, and we love getting new cookie recipes to try, so all participants will receive a sweet little Scrap Girls Boutique gift just for joining in.

Here's how to join in the fun:

  • Design a 4x6-inch recipe card at 300 pixels per inch (1800 x 1200 pixels) using mostly Scrap Girls products. Use one of your favorite holiday cookie, candy, or sweet treat recipes - something "tried and true" is preferred.
  • All skill levels are encouraged to participate! If this is your very first time to try your hand at digital scrapbooking or if you’re a pro, please join in the fun!
  • When you design your card, avoid putting any text within ¼ inch of the edges. Anything close to the edges can get cut off when the card is printed.
  • Place your name or Scrap Girls Forum username somewhere on the recipe card (small text is fine).
  • Save your design as a JPG file, with a file name that includes your name or ScrapGirls Forum user name (for example, my file might be called aprilshowers_gingercrinkles.jpg.) We want to know who made what!
  • Attach your card to an email and send it to cookieexchange@scrapgirls.com. Please include your first and last name in the body of your email. A confirmation will be emailed to each person who sends a recipe card so they know their card was received. Please allow 48 hours for confirmation.
  • Cards MUST be received by Midnight (ET) on Thursday, December 11th.
  • Unfortunately, if you don't send in a recipe card, you will not be able to get a copy of all the cards. No exceptions. Your recipe card is your ticket to all the fun!
  • We ask that you not post your recipe card in your Gallery, Facebook, or anywhere else until the swap is over. This way, we can all be surprised by the cards we get! You can post your own card in the Gallery or anywhere else anytime after December 13th.
  • Please don’t sell or give away any of the finished cards on blogs, emails, etc. You may print some or all the recipe cards as a gift for someone you know personally, but wide-scale distribution or sale is not allowed, as per our commercial use terms, which can be read in full here.
  • You can submit more than one card, if you wish - the more the merrier!

On or before December 13th, each participant will receive the links (via email - the same way that links come when you buy Scrap Girls products) to download the recipe card files. Participants will need to include their First Name, Last Name and email address for us to send them the recipes.
