A Progressive Challenge is done quickly and in steps.........it's like scrapbooking meets Simon Says with a touch of choose your group's adventure. Or it could be described as going to a virtual crop since we chat and scrap at the same time. Here's why a virtual crop can be great:

~*~ there's no pressure to buy more scrap supplies (like you need more)

~**~ it's from the comfort of your own home (including the scream/fighting kids, hubby that needs your help finding something you miss placed, crying baby, and bothersome calls from the MIL)

~***~ your supplies don't have to be packed and unpacked (because they're right where you left them- or at least that's where you thought you left it)

New info in red!!

Reminder to bring a friend!! On SAT July 28 at Noon Eastern TIME. Plus Sunday the 29th at noon.

At the selected time of the day, I will give directions for you to follow approximately every 15 minutes until the challenge/layout is complete. I will not even know the how the layout will turn out because you all will help make decisions as I narrate a story. It’s like a choose your own adventure scrapbook challenge.

Aug will be a motivational round


You will need common scrap supplies and 2 or 3 pictures to be decided at the time of the challenge.

You must follow the steps and you should not peek ahead if you are doing the page after the fact. You must do what the step says, but you can do more if you would like. For example if the step calls for adding embellishments and you’re told to add two you could add three.

You can play with me at that time I give the directions or you can follow later following the order when you get a free chance.

Some sneak peeks:
*Step one sketch/scraplift selection
**Step two paper selection and placement
***Step three add photos
****Step four add homemade flowers or embellishments
*****Step five add embellishments
******Step six add title
*******Step seven add journaling, doodling, or stitching stage

THE RULES:
*Your lo has to be new as of the day the challenge, hence a progressive challenge.
**Upload your lo here within 24 hours of the last direction (the exception is to the weekly progressive you have exactly one week to complete the page)
***Single or double page LO's are fine. Any size is allowed too! Paper only as the directions are for that type
****On Wednesday after all the SATURDAY challenges have closed, PM me your favorite TWO layouts for EACH challenge.
*****Don’t vote for yourself as you will get a vote from me for sending in your vote.
******You can start the challenge at anytime within the 24 hours
*******You MUST follow each direction step-by-step one at a time, NO sneak peeks

Q&A
Do I have to complete the challenge at the time you post the steps?
No. However, you cannot read ahead when you begin making the page. For fairness take it one step at a time. No sneak peeking. Also if you complete the challenge at the designated time and you are the first to finish you earn bonus points.


What exactly is this challenge?
I have posted a sample from the last one we did. It's at the bottom of this page. Here's what I came up with when I followed all the steps:
Gigglerific By Ms.Schwiet


I'm going to follow along from my mom's house on Thanksgiving day. What should I take along?
For those of you playing away from home (like myself) and plan to scrapping between bites of turkey here’s a few items to include in your scrapbag:

*3 pictures you could use less or more
**2 sheets of paper you could combine for the background pages
***Additional coordinating pages to make a home-made flower and/or to use as matting, tags, or letters for a title
****Something to distress with or mask with that relates to the pictures
*****Embellishment goodies here’s the full list but you’ll be told to pick a certain number from a certain group (take a few of your favorites and if what you have isn’t listed finish when you get home of FRIDAY): Sticker, die cut, stamp, buttons, brad, eyelets, lace, trim, beads, non scrap item, paper piecing, stickles or glitter, ribbon, stitching, something metal, punch, die cut, quilling
******coordinating flowers and flourishes
*******letters for a title
********pen for doodling or journaling

I will bookmark this thread and see how it goes. I have to work all weekend, so I guess it will depend on the times as to whether or not I will get to play. Sounds interesting, I've never done anything like this before.

I hope you can make it. It is definately an unusual way to get a scarp done, but the more of us working step-by-step the funner it could be.Of course, you can come back after the fact and do it. Especially since I know you have to work.

I'd use the slow motion button more often in my life than a fast forward button. In fact some days I think the fast forward button is stuck on my remote of life.

I had to answer the question you've been asking what is this? So I decided to go back and get the last one we did so you can see the steps you may have to do. Our adventures will be similiar but not the same.

Today you are going to the LLS to get a few items off your shopping list. Before you go you must decide if you want to make the trip alone or with a friend.

The first person that replies with the decision go alone or with a friend will dictate the first step we will take in this challenge


With a friend

STEP ONE - Gather any TWO pieces of card stock or background paper.......Scallop the edge(s) of one and attach it to to the other to form a frame. This can be a matt over or under the frame

You notice that the item you have been wanted but couldn’t really afford is on sale. Do you splurge and buy it or wait until it fits better in your budget?

The first person that replies with the decision to buy or not to buy will dictate the next step we will take in this challenge

Go for it buy it

STEP TWO
Pick any three or more pictures
Mat or frame at least one- crop or don’t crop the others to your liking


As you go to check out the sales clerk points out that there is a clearance on pattern paper. Do you browse and see what is available or continue to the check out?

The first person that replies with the decision to browse or checkout now will dictate the next step we will take in this challenge



No we have enough papers

STEP THREE:
Add flowers and flourishes of your choice and any number but one must be a new made fan flower.


The sales clerk points out that there is a scrap this weekend at the store. Do you sign up to attend or do you tell her “maybe next time.”

The first person that replies with the decision to sign up or say next time now will dictate the next step we will take in this challenge.


Maybe next time

STEP FOUR???
You must pick at LEAST three things from the following list to embellish your page with. Feel free to add other and more
1. Stickles or glitter
2. Ribbon or stitching
3. Something metal
4. Punch or die cut
5. Non scrap item
6. Quilling


Now you must decide do you pay with cash or credit.

The first person that replies with the decision to pay with cash or credit will dictate the next step we will take in this challenge.


Cash

STEP FIVE- Title Time with a Twist. It's up to you about placement, product and size, but whatever you use - "bling it up" in some way

Our FINAL decision. Do you use a store provide bag or do you carry the item out without a bag

The first person that replies with the decision bag or not to bag will dictate the next step we will take in this challenge.


Bag it

LAST STEP
journal around photos in your own handwriting!
