October is on the way! Time for sign ups!

Are you ready for an exciting month of challenges that will spark your creativity and make you to step outside your comfort zone by challenging you to try variety of techniques? You may even complete that project you always wanted to finish. If so, welcome to October's Anything Goes Challenge!

As usual, we will enjoy daily challenges, weekly challenges, weekly photo challenges and a monthly challenge.

SIGN-UPS will be open until October 10th

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than October 15th. If you don't want to count points, you can always play motivational (but you won't be eligible for the prizes).

Please mail to:
Megan A. Walker
311 S LASALLE ST APT 3H
DURHAM, NC 27705-3606

Alternately you can pay via PayPal by sending money to
[email protected]
If you select this method, you will have to pay $8.55 to cover PayPal fees but that’s not that bad considering a stamp would cost you $0.44

Only pages that are NEWLY completed and uploaded on or after October 1st count towards your total points and layouts. This challenge ends on October 31st at 11:59 PM PST. All LOs, cards, pics, or other projects to be counted for points or towards your LO goal must be uploaded to your gallery AND linked to this thread with your point details. Going forward all pics, LOs and point details must be posted to the thread by the deadline which is Sunday 12 midnight PST.

PRIZES: Gift certificates to sb.com!

**Prize Categories**
(prize amounts will be based upon the number of players)

1 - Most points overall - no matter what your goal was or how many layouts you complete, if you have the most points at the end of the month, then you win this category...

2 - Most points 10 or less layouts - if you set your goal for 10 or less layouts and complete 10 or less layouts for the month, then you are eligible for this category - if you complete more than 10 LOs then congrats to you, but that moves you to the other categories...

3 - Random drawing of everyone who meets their goal - very simple, meet your goal and I will put all names into a hat at the end of the month and draw

4 – Most points 11-25 LOs. If you set your goal for 11-25 layouts and complete your goal of 11-25 layouts for the month, then you are eligible for this category - if you complete more than 25 LOs then congrats to you, but that moves you to the other categories...

5 –Most daily challenges completed - I will post a new challenge everyday and if you do them, keep track of how many you complete, then you will be eligible for a prize at the end of the month. If there is a tie, then there will be a drawing. (To be eligible for this category, please start a blog at sb.com to list your challenges completed.) Daily challenges are meant to be completed on a layout, a card, or an altered project. There will be few day specific challenges but generally you will be able to complete those challenges at your own pace and you may combine several of them on a same layout, card, or altered project.

***** You will only be eligible for prizes having met your LO goal. You can only win in one category.*****

Layouts are counted towards your goal in the following manner:

*8x8 or above (6x12, 8.5x11, 12x12) = 1 layout (2 pagers count as 2 layouts)
*2 6x6 = 1 layout
*3 4x6=1 layout
*4 mini layouts (3x3, 4x4 etc.)= 1 layout
*Cards do not count toward your layout goal, but you can count points for them*

Altered items and other projects can be counted as "layouts" based on the amount of work in them. If you aren't sure how many to count, just ask!

**A note for people who'd like to play for prizes, but not keep track of points; as long as you link/post your layouts to the thread, you can still be eligible for categories 3 & 5 of prizes!**


WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PLEASE POST YOUR LAYOUT GOAL FOR THE MONTH - YOU MAY CHANGE YOUR GOAL ANYTIME BEFORE SIGN-UPS CLOSE!



For all of our seasoned veterans, let me know on the thread or via pm if you are willing to help a newbie by being their buddy and working with them until they get the hang of the pts system.


For all the NEWBIES, let me know by posting on this thread or sending me a pm if you would like to have a buddy help you figure out points for your first few LOs, so you don't miss anything.

Then, I will get our volunteers paired up with a newbie and we can have a fun and smooth month!

Have fun! +150 pts.
10/22:Right now there is a wish list contest going on here at sb.com. If you add new items to your wish list between now and Nov. 30, you are entered into the contest where you could win $400 towards the items in your wish list! So go and add some new items to your wish list and then link a few items here on the thread so we can drool over them! Have fun! +100 pts.

The points list for October will be posted on September 30th. But check out the points list on the September thread. It will stay pretty much the same with a few changes. If there is anything you want to see points for don't be afraid to speak up! Here's the link to September:

I have a quickie on the acrylic album: When you say six pages, does that mean 3 pieces of acrylic, front and back or does that mean six pieces of acrylic? I'm thinking you mean six pieces of acrylic but I wanted to make sure. This will be my first and I want to prepare correctly.

So much for a quickie!

There are a few examples in the Super Store. If you click on one of the Clear Scraps albums that Megan linked above, you can see a tutorial by Kels. That helped me so much yesterday because I was evidently clueless! I thought you slid your LO into an acrylic sleeve, but evidently not so much.

Yeah, I like the word "evidently."

Here is a link to a tutorial that I did a long time ago about making your own acrylic album out of packaging.

Hopefully someone can use it

Points suggestion:

Points for using hand held punches..not just border punches. I'm finding myself using my punches a lot lately.

6 months old? No way!!! Oh, I have been away way too long! Blake is his name, right?

I moved back in June, bought a new home, and have been busy trying to get settled in...it is a TON of work! My scrapping room took forever to setup, I have way toooooo much stuff! But it is all setup and ready to go, I can't wait to get back into the scrapping frenzy again.

My only suggestion is since we are coming into the holiday time that we add more theme and keep the family theme. I think maybe 5 themes this month might be good.

for example:
family
vacations
celebrations
Halloween
happiness

Oh and this idea has nothing to do with the pt list and may be too complicated to actually do.
Could we possibly come up with a buddy system to help newbies with pts on maybe their first 2 LOs?? So that way its not so intimidating! Probably a dumb idea but I thought I would throw it out there.

September was my first month and over the month I learned I had missed taking points on things like taking points for foam even if you couldn't see it. So I think the buddy system would be great.

I would love for you to be my guinea pig. What I was thinking was for your first 2 LOs you could post them and then I could do the pts for you. That way you wouldnt miss anything. But I would send the pt list back to you so you could post it yourself of course!

I see you went S on the challenges

The buddy system sounds like a good idea to me. When I first started, I was always pm'ing the hostess to check things. It would have been good to have someone watching me do points for a few LOs. That's really all it takes to get the hang of it

It might be nice for someone (Megan)? to post a LO with points as an example. Reminding everyone that the points do change a bit from month to month.
I print out the points list and keep it on a clipboard next to my laptop. Then just go down the list when taking pts. Some people keep the list loaded and fill in the blanks for each LO/card/altered item. I keep a small notebook next to my lap top and write the monthly project on the first page, a running list of the dailys on the second page, the weekly LO and photo list and comment tiks on third page. the next pages are where I write out pts for each LO as I load it up. This helps to check later if I've mad a mistake or forgotten anything. It may sound complicated but it really isn't after the first one everything starts to make sense. And the ladies here are wonderful to answer any questions.

I would definitely like to have a big sister help me make sure I get my points straight. Do we track our own points? I'm assuming so.
