Double Feature Chat 11:00 AM

05 November 2016 - 07:59 AM

11:00 a.m. (ET) – Double Feature

Join Melanie (mbc72) in the chat room for a Double Feature chat!  We will discuss featuring two very different collections on one layout.


Don't forget, there's a freebie at every chat today!



The challenge for the chat today is to use the Simplify Collection if you have it, and a collection from the Spring section of the boutique on one layout.


If you don't have the Simplify Collection, you can use any Fall collection in your stash.


Some tips for mixing collections from the chat:


Look for similar styles- artsy, shabby chic, traditional paper

Stick with one designer

Look for matching color palettes

Change the colors if you need to

Organize supplies in a way that encourages you to use a variety of items

Weekend Wildcard Challenge 8/27/2016

The last weekend of August already?? How did that happen?


Today's challenge is brought to you by the word: Butterfly.  However this inspires your layout, go for it!  Do you have a photo of a butterfly that needs scrapped?  Want to use some butterfly embellishments?  Have a photo of a butterfly that inspires a color palette?  It's all up to you with this one word challenge.


Once your layout is finished, post it to the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery so we can leave you some love.

Weekend Challenge 8/13


Recently I wrote a little article called Fun With Pocket Life Cards  about using Pocket Life cards on your layouts.  Many of our newer designers make PL Cards to accompany most of their collections, and Brandy included some in this month's ScrapGirls Club


My challenge to you is to use at least one PL Card on your layout.  It can be an accent card, word art, journaling, date, whatever type of card you want to use. 


If you don't have any in your stash, or none to match the collection you are working with- no worries, they are super easy and fun to make!  Here are a couple of articles on how  to make your own:


Creating Custom Journaling Cards

Make Your Own Pocket Life Journal Cards


If you are in the mood to shop for some cards, they have their own section in the boutique!  Pocket Life Journaling Cards


Remember, your layout does not have to be a Pocket Life style layout to use Pocket Life cards- you can use the cards on any style of layout.  So, get scrapping and upload your layout to the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery today, so we can leave you some love.

Weekend Wildcard Challenge 7/16/2016

Whew! Here in Texas it is hot, hot, hot, :happy-sun: :happy-sun: :happy-sun:   "real feel" temps have been over 105 degrees several days this summer.  In honor of all this heat, and my face being beet red anytime I go outside, :dancing-smilie:   I searched Pinterest and found this pretty color palette from Design Seeds using red and orange.  Your challenge today is to use at least 3 colors from this palette in your layout.  Once your layout is finished, upload it to the Weekend Challenge Gallery so we can leave you some love.




Weekend Wildcard Challenge 7/2/2016

01 July 2016 - 10:03 AM

Saturday July 2 is World UFO Day!  For the majority of the world that stands for Unidentified Flying Object, :space-man-smilie: :space-man-smilie: :space-man-smilie:  here at ScrapGirls, however, it has traditionally stood for Unfinished Objects.

For today's challenge I want you to dig around in your folders and find one of those unfinished layouts that you started but never quite finished, and let's get them finished today!  It may be something simple like adding date/journaling, or maybe all you did was choose photos and have the whole layout to complete.  Wherever you are in your layout process, today is the day to get them done!

Upload your finished layouts to the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Galleryso we can leave you some love!
