2009 Volume Scrapping Challenge

I know that I'm not the only nut here that's planning on making a lot of layouts this year!

So here's the challenge.

1. State how many layouts or cards or mini-albums you want to get done this year (you decide what counts toward your goal or not)
2. Report weekly how many you got done or not done "0"

We're on an honor system here. I'm not requiring any layout is uploaded or a special album or anything like that.

I'll tally everyone's totals weekly. For example, I want to break 1,000 layouts. Yes, I'm that So for example if I'd gotten 50 completed so far I'd post:

Bling Fairy Vivian: 50/1000 5%

So if you're planning on 52 layouts (one a week) or whatever, you're welcome to join.

========================= ===============

Monthly end percentage goals:

January 8.3%
February 16.7%
March 25%
April 33.3%
May 41.7%
June 50%
July 58.3%
August 66.7%
September 75%
October 83.3%
November 91.7%
December 100%

I didn't reach my goal. I only got 819 done but that was over a 100 more than the previous year.

I scrap for others and my church. I make alot of gift albums too. Plus most of my layouts are 8.5x11 so those come together really quickly and easily.

There are no strict rules for what you add into your count. You can add cards, any sized layouts, or about any paper crafts from making pretty signs for parties to table decorations.

This challenge isn't about sharing layouts or leaving comments but that's allowed. I certainly won't want to bombard anyone with all my layouts here. So this challenge is about setting a number goal and trying to reach it.

A weekly check in with how many you've done that week (don't have to upload for things to count either) will help me track your progress.

The month end goal for January is 8.3%.

Just in case anyone has forgotten how to do that, just take your goal total and multiply 8.3% to it. So for me, that's 83 layouts a month to reach my year end goal. If you have a 100 as your goal, then doing 9 layouts will keep you slightly ahead. No scrambling in the last quarter of the year.

Got everyone added to the second post of this thread. Please make sure I didn't goof any of your info.

Since this challenge is all year long, if any of you change your names (like I know I will), please make sure I change your info. Also if you find that you're doing so well that you need to up your goal, that's allowed, too.

I can't believe how high everyone's goals are!! I don't think mine will be nearly as high as everyone else's

Past couple of years, sb.com has had an album contest forum. Where you start your own thread tracking layouts/creations that you did this year. I inquired about if there will be one for this year. They're probably off today.

I mention this because it really helped to list them.

This is my thread from last year:

http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/13968...

If they do this again, I'll make sure to let ya know. But in the meanwhile, it may be a good idea to blog it. Don't do everything in the opening blog. Just state what your goals/purposes are. I've lost info on blogs that got too big. So add onto in the comment areas. This is just back up. You could do a file on your computer. Whatever works for you.

Kelly, you don't have to be real precise. Just think of how many you want to get done in a month or so then multiple by 11 or 12 then round it if you want to. Trying to figure out a whole year is too much.

Most of my 300 are cards. I plan on making a bunch for Cards for Heroes.

In response to Joda

Hi Everyone - yes - this contest will run again for 2008... I'll be posting the forum for it in early January, so keep your eyes peeled.

Please just mark 12 of your favorite layouts on your list if you've uploaded several or all to your gallery. Place the asterisk here on your thread/post... you DO NOT need to link the titles to your layouts in your gallery.

I will be randomly spot checking to be sure that you've each met the requirements It's a big job, but someone's gotta do it

Thanks for all your participation!

Vivian you are right. I could count the 2007 pics but I still have pics from before then and I don't even want to attempt to count them. It might be so many that I just give up!

I am going to say 100 layouts. I am going to count 1 page layouts and 2 page layouts the same (as just 1 layout). I am not going to count cards, minibooks, or other projects... just layouts to go into my big 12x12 family album. I really want to get caught up! Plus, I generally make WAY too many cards so I want to de-encourage myself to make cards this year.

So, my goal is going to be 100 layouts. I know, that isn't a lot compared to everyone else's goal but I think that is the most I can attain. Hopefully I will be ready to go for more next year. That will mean 2 layouts/week (with 2 weeks off). I usually don't make more than 1 layout in a sitting so this will mean scrapping twice/week which is a good goal for me! (and actually finishing a layout each time )

Deb, got you added with 500 pages/layouts.

The goals that we set here for ourselves aren't about what others are doing or not doing. It should be reasonable and a bit more. Just to give each of us an extra nudge.

And like Tali said, you can raise your goal later. And you can lower your goal, too. Normally, after the half way mark (July), most of us will get a better grasp of what we'll be able to obtain numbers wise.

Love to have you, Rio.

Right now I'm in the process of redoing my room yet again. This is it, though. I'm not allowing myself any more major changes until July, if I'm at my goal for pages.

On top of that, I'm switching over to a new computer. Sounds like fun, but it's not. I've got alot of old software that I'm rather fond of but have concerns that Vista may not like. Dh wants my laptop but ... oh, why didn't he just buy me a new scanner like I asked. Never asked for a new computer. Never got a scanner... whine, whine, whine... well, anyway, these two reasons may keep me off line this weekend. But I plan to be back Monday at the latest. Otherwise, I'm taking back my laptop!!!

I have at least 5 mini albums that I have been planning for quite some time and the supplies just sit there. I also am planning to do a 8.5x11 per day so that should add up pretty fast. The number sounds so high though! Eek!)

I may not upload all of mine... at least for a while. My scanner is acting wonky. I gotta get that situated. *sighs*

Lol! Well, I am trying to document the actual day each day. So take a photo and document like Jan 3rd kind of idea. It is more of a visual journal. I have taken photos and I have journaled, but not assembled them yet. I need to get photos printed (I want to get a good quality photo printer in the next week or so).

I just completed my goal for last year of 414 pages. That included all sizes. I would like to do at least that many again this year so I am setting a goal of 425. If I do that many pages maybe I will get caught up. I don't have any major projects in mind so maybe I can actually finish my girls' albums.

Just checking in. I haven't been scrapping, been cleaning out closets... But I noticed the percentages that you figured out month by month. You are so organized, it puts me to shame. However, I know that I won't make those percentages. I don't get to scrap consistently. I'm the hare, not the tortoise!!! really it's just that I get to scrap more when I'm out of school (spring break, long weekends, Christmas break, etc.) and it also depends ALOT on what dd's have going on over the weekends. Sometimes I won't get any lo's done for a month, then 20 nin a weekend. I'm just going to work on the total!! See ya'll later!!

Got you added at 425 pages/layouts. As for being caught up, I thought any of us truly are ever caught up. Some of us may be current but I think most us have old pictures, family photos, and such that need to "saved."

I have to scrap chronologically but I've loosened up recently. I can scrap this month since it's the beginning of a new year. But each year I have to do in order I know. It's a bit of an OCD thing for me. But it makes me scrap stuff I would avoid if I could. Plus I don't have to mess with order in my albums this way.

Whatever works for any of us! Just get scrapping!

Sherry, the percentages are only there to help those that want to keep up monthly. Everyone here scraps a bit differently, not just style wise but time wise.

There's no strict rules on this challenge except just get your pages done. You decide what counts toward your goal, not anyone else. You decide how much you want to get done and when with the exception of the end of year goal (which you can change any time). Pretty easy, huh?

I'd LOVE to complete a page-a-day (or 365) but I know when hubby's home from work that never happens (and I'll more than likely run out of material by then...).

So my more realistic goals is 150 pages. I think I'll count mini-projects as 1-2 pages (depending on how complex), same with paperbag albums (probably 2), etc. Is that okay?

I got to spend all day scrapping, this storm took out the power at work so it ended up being an extra day off. Yay! I completed 8 layouts and a mini chipboard book.

Is it too late to join? I'd like to get 200 done. I am only planning to include 12x12 and 8x8 LOs and calendar pages. Maybe putting a goal out there will keep me motivated!

Trying to step-up our housework AND our scrapping at the same... are we crazy or what?!

I did start a layout last night... hoping to get much more done today after my "chores" are done...but first I need to catch up with my fav threads

KellyLeigh-I agree! I thought about saying something last night when I was posting on both challenges and saw that you were also. I didn't want to sound like I was making excuses though KWIM? But, it's almost like one challenge seems to be sure the other is more difficult-we must be crazy! I think it's all a matter of balance though and I'm up for the challnge of doing both if you are!! Go us!

And yes, I am up for the challenge... and I guess we can really motivate eachother!

I'd LOVE to complete a page-a-day (or 365) but I know when hubby's home from work that never happens (and I'll more than likely run out of material by then...).

So my more realistic goals is 150 pages. I think I'll count mini-projects as 1-2 pages (depending on how complex), same with paperbag albums (probably 2), etc. Is that okay?



Got you added at 150 pages. However you want to count your pages is fine.

Playing on the new pc but not transferred over anything yet. I've had to reboot once already. Not a good sign in my book.

Just tell me how many pages the mini-album counts as.

Also for everyone, tracking in your siggie "4/100" helps me alot.

Hi, Just added a bunch of layouts to my gallery. Didn't do them all tonight, most were 90% complete.. just needed some finishing touches like journaling, etc. I did complete two new ones tonight. So, that is my first 2 for the first week of the year. Yippie. I'm on a roll. Now to keep it up.

I have not done any scrapbooking yet! I plan to do a lot tomorrow though!

Hey, question for you all... I want to upload, but I am not sure about my scanner issues. I can probably take photos, but I like scans better. If I upload with a photo, can I switch the scan in later without losing comments? Anyone know?

Thanks!

I was told at one point that you can't keep your comments when you replace the photo. Sorry! I might be wrong - ask Megan on the tech forum to be sure.
