National scrapbooking day challenge
5 Attachment(s)

Saturday, May 3 is National Scrapbooking Day and your Swaps Team has coordinated on a scrapbooking layout challenge directly with our friends at Paper Wishes/HOTP, AND we have a fun activity scheduled for throughout the day on Saturday as well, so


First off, this post is for the SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT CHALLENGE -- see the "nsd.pdf" flyer attachment below, which pictures both sketches). We have two sketches to choose from: the top one, courtesy of our friend Becky Fleck at PageMaps as well as the bottom sketch designed by HOTP's own Cristina. Also included is a sample also from PageMaps showing a page made using the first sketch!

See the attachments below for the flyer with the rules and sketches, as well as the files for the sketch shapes! (Note there are two files for the sketch shapes, but they are the same shapes, just two file types in case you can't open one or the other!)

AND let's say a big THANK YOU to Paper Wishes for providing the prizes and working with the Swaps Team to put this together!!!

We must use 1 technique, but we can use more than 1?

You can enter more than once using the same sketch but each entry has to use a different technique from the list and theme. You can use more than 1 technique from the list on your entry, but then you'd have to use different techniques from the list if you put in a second entry.

And you can make entries using EACH sketch - but again, each entry for sketch A has to have a different technique and theme, and each entry for sketch B has to have a different technique and theme.

Hope that clarifies; if not, let me know!!

Rhonda - I'm assuming since it says "you must use at least one technique" that you can use more than one, just as long as you use one of those. Sam, correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't know if I'll have time to play this weekend. But I wanted to clarify just in case, thanks Sam.

SamB 05-01-2014 02:01 PM

Well you have until May 5 to get your entries in Rhonda!
We do have another surprise that will be just for Saturday that will be posted shortly...still ironing out a few details!

Oh I hope EVERYBODY gives it a shot - even if you aren't a scrapbooker, now is the time to give it a try and maybe win a prize! Remember, it's just getting the memory down, and ART is NOT perfect!!!!

I would encourage everyone to try. I'm really a newbie to scrapping and I am going to try and see what I can come up with.
