Weekend Challenge 1/17

17 January 2015 - 07:41 AM

We have been discussing the Pantone Color of the Year, Marsala, all week.  While researching this color choice on the internet, I found quite a bit of controversy, people either really love it or really hate it.  It appears that most people here at Scrap Girls like it, although some are withholding judgment until they see more of it.


Below is a color swatch of Pantone's Color of the Year since 2000, and I am sure you can see the difference in this year's selection, it is much more subdued and earthy, as pointed out by Debbie in this week’s newsletter.  For today's challenge create a layout with your favorite Pantone color choice from the last several years as your dominant color.  If you are loving Marsala, feel free to use it again, however if you are a bit tired of it, you have several other colors to choose from.   After you post your challenge in the Weekend Challenge Gallery come back here and tell us what drew you to that particular color choice.




Here are a few collections from our boutique to inspire you:

Weekend Challenge

03 January 2015 - 08:42 AM

The end of the year is always a wonderful time to reflect on the ups and downs of the 365 days that have just passed.  The little moments that slipped your mind with all the busy-ness of the year, as well as the big defining moments that happened.  For this first weekend challenge of the New Year we want you to sift through those photos of 2014 and scrap your 5 favorite memories of the year.  Big or little, everyday moments or life-changing events, we want you to share them with us in your layout.


Please post your challenge to the Weekend Challenge Gallery.





As April mentioned earlier in the week we are changing up the challenges for 2015.  Sometimes the weekend challenges may still be color challenges, but not always.

Project Life 2015

02 January 2015 - 09:30 PM

The details for PL2015 are the same as last year:


SG Project Life is a year-long scrapping challenge. The goal is to stay current scrapping the year. There is not a set form, you can take daily photos, scrap weekly layouts, monthly layouts or whatever works for you.

SG Project Life is similar to a Project 52 or 365 which are year long challenges of creating 52 weekly layouts (one for each week of the year) or taking 365 photos (a photo a day) and documenting them. We don't want overwhelm anyone with daunting requirements so we simply give you the challenge to document your year then let you approach this project in a way that meets your individual goals.

Here are some typical formats our members have chosen:

One layout for each week of the year (single or double pages)
A double page layout covering two weeks
One layout (single or double paged) per month
A monthly calendar style layout with or without a companion page.
Scrap the significant events from each month-- some months with more pages than others.
Use "Pocket Life" products to document your year.

You can choose one of these formats or create your own. The way you go about it is really up to you; however, we do have a few requirements if you wish to participate in the "official" SG Project Life for 2015 and be eligible for the associated prizes.

You must post your layouts to the SG Project Life 2015 Gallery  in order for them to earn points toward the quarterly drawings
Your photos must be from the current year

In order to receive the participation prize you will need to post 12 layouts (one for each month of 2015) in the gallery.
If you are a hybrid or traditional scrapper, you are welcome to join the challenge too. Simply post photos or scans of your finished pages.


Quarterly Drawing Prize - Digital Layout Template
Winners will be randomly drawn from members who post layouts to the SG Project Life Gallery. Each layout uploaded to this Gallery earns 1 point, a double page earns 2, with a maximum number of points for a month being 4. You may upload more than 4 layouts if you are catching up, but you will only get 4 points for that month.

Each person who completes layouts for the entire year of 2015 (at least one layout for each month of 2015) will receive a participation prize for staying up to date!

Project Life 2015...coming Soon!

26 December 2014 - 01:22 PM

2015 is right around the corner!!!  With the awesome Boutique Sale going on right now it's a great time to start planning ahead for those PL 2015 layouts.  Everything I have been reading says that a little advanced planning is the best way to stick with this all year long.


So, how will you be doing your Project Life next year?  There are planners, calendars and layout templates all devoted specifically to helping you have a successful year scrapping Project Life.  Or maybe you like a more eclectic approach to your album and plan to use a variety of products.  Whichever method you choose, don't let this chance to stock up on some supplies pass you by!


While we are on the topic, don't forget to pull out your camera and capture those first of the year photos!  We will "officially" kick off Project Life 2015 in January, but I would hate for you to miss out on those New Year's photos.


A few suggestions to photograph:

New Year's celebrations

Traditional New Year's foods

The weather

Something that may represent any resolutions or changes you hope to make this year

A self portrait


So who will be joining me in 2015?  I can't wait to get started!!
