I'm in, this could be interesting. Please give me pointers, I've never played this scrap 'game'.



Welcome Stacey!

Basically, it's pretty simple (or so it might seem!)

- Look around the site Superstore.

- Look in your personal Mass Of A Stash.

- Find & Choose 5 items that you own from the inventory (insert the step that is proving to be tricky!)

- Link them here, using the Superstore product link (found within the your message reply).

- I will then link your 5 specified selections to page 1, so that the rest of the Players will also know what items you are personally working towards actually using in the alloted time.

- 1 of 2 things will then happen. You will or will not end up using your items. If you do, you are then automatically eligible to win the game goodie prize(s) (Note: Random Drawing)...Or if not, then whatever items you did not end up using, will need to be mailed on to the Challenge winner!

Hope That Helps Some More!

I am new to challenges and thinking about joining in. I have a question though. Can our design be a scraplift? Also, I don't have a 12 x 12 scanner but I do have a pretty old digital camera. While human subjects come out relatively well, my scrap LOs are always a little fuzzy.

Thanks!

Kathy :-)

Hi there Kathy. Welcome To The Challenges Board!...You'll love it here in no time, I'm sure!

Scraflifts are perfectly fine. The 'new LO's only' part that you will come across in the 'Rules', if you will, just means new layouts begun after the Challenge began vs. layouts that may have been created before the Challenge.

As for the not having a scanner part, you will eventually hear to discover, that many of us also do not have scanners either. There are photog tip and suggestions to be found, such as try taking your photos on a sheet or a white background, and even better yet & or if a possibility, try taking your LO pics outside, during the daylight, using the suns natural light.

Hope That Helps Kathy.

Welcome & Be sure to let us know if there are any other questions that you might have. Also, as some helpful advice, be sure to check back on the Challenge boards a few days before each month arrives, as they do tend to fill up really fast!

Here's what I'm thinking about so far! I've had the transparency forever and need to use it! I need to come up with some more! Hmmm...

Exactly what I was thinking!

It's so hard not to look through the store and not long for yet even more beautiful & exciting things!

It's when you're not really looking, that you end up finding the best things!

If you work it right, you could kill 2 birds in one sitting!...(Using 3 of your 5 selected items!)

And a $75 Prize Pack...Um, that's inspiration all in itself!

Thanks for the reminder & link Diane!

Good Luck Ladies!

Gotcha!...Added to your front page section!

p.s. From afar, I dunno, it sorta looks like they might even be able to go together somehow.

If so, that of course, would totally be a bonus, when attempting to use up in one sitting!

Good Luck finding 3 more!
