AUGUST 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 AUGUST'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 AUGUST 10th.

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than AUGUST 15th. If you don't want to pay, 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 AUGUST 1st count towards your total points and layouts. This challenge ends on AUGUST 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 daily/weekly/monthly 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 - 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...

4 – 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.

5 – 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 one name.

***** 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 4 & 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!

When you post your cards, LOs, or altered projects please post all points details inculding any daily, weekly, or monthly challenges you are counting them for.

~*~DAILY CHALLENGES~*~

Each day a new challenge will be posted. These challenges can be done at your own pace unless specified in the challange. These can easily be incorporated into any card or LO. You can take +10 pts for completing the challenge on the same day it was posted.

8/1:Let's get out blogs and siggy set up for August! Once you set up your blog to track daily challenges completed and your signature to track your points total AND LOs completed out of LO goal, take +125 pts!

8/2: Since it's the second day of the eighth month, let's try for eight pairs of two on our page today. (2 PPs, 2 cardstocks, 2 buttons, 2 stickers, 2 stitches... you choose the pair combination!) 150 points

8/3: My sons are both gearing up to go back to school in just a few short weeks. In honor of that, let's practice a few ABCs on our page.

A: Apple
B: Brads
C: Chocolate (as in the color)
D: Doodle
E: Emboss
F: Flowers
G: Glimmer (as in bling)
H: Handcut
I: Ink
J: Journaling
K: Keepsake (as in memorabilia)
L: Lace
M: Markers
N: Non-scrapbook Item (as in supplies that aren't normally for scrapbooking, not memorabilia)
O: Oval
P: Pink
Q: Quarters (as in 1/4)
R: Ribbon
S: Square
T: Thread
U: Underline
V: Vine
W: Woolie (as in felt or similar texture)
X: X-Ray (as in transparent)
Y: Yarn
Z: Zipper

For each of the ABCs you choose and use on your page, earn 25 points, up to 150 points total.

8/4: Go to random.org and use min of 1 and max of 8. Whichever you draw is the color combination group you should use below:

1. Red/White/Blue
2. Grey/Pink/White
3. Blue/Orange/Green
4. Purple/Yellow/White
5. White/Black/Red
6. Green/Yellow/Brown
7. Brown/Pink/White
8. Orange/Red/White

Your page should be a majority of the three colors. If you add another color, it should only be black or white.

Complete this and it will earn you 135 points.

PS - Your photo doesn't count towards the color combo. (In case someone wonders.)

8/5: Use this August 2009 PageMap to make a page:


200 points... if done today, 300 points!

8/6: Today, get 30 points for each photo you put on a single page, up to 5 photos (a total of 150 possible points). If you make a 2-pager, get 15 points for each photo, up to 10 photos (a total of 150 possible points).

8/7: I have FOUR birthdays today (MIL, best friend, another best friend's daughter, and another good friend), plus a birthday party for my youngest, whose birthday was last week! So today, I challenge you to do one of two things:

A) Make a bunch of birthday cards to prepare for your upcoming birthdays. Each card is worth 25 points, up to 150 points

B) Make a page and cut out pieces from old birthday cards to use as embellishment. For each birthday card embellishment you use, get 25 points, up to 150 points.

8/8: You've made it through the week! Give yourself 150 points if you have made at least 1 scrapbook page between 8/2 and today.

8/9: Take 50 points for each way you manage to get apples onto your layout - up to 150 points.

  • Quote:
Tina scraps Said:


*I grew up in Boston
*I have brown hair and eyes
*I love chocolate

So the next person would have to list at least one of those things in common, and then any other 2 things they want, and so forth.

Trend Shetta (love the nick, by the way, lol)
I have(dark)brown eyes
My fave color is pink
Im a night-owl

Gentlewoodfarms
I'm a night owl.
I have two daughters.
I hate tomatoes.

So the next person should go off Gentlewoodfarms post - you pick one thing you have in common with her, and go from there.



8/27: pick any LO where you used a sketch and REDO it. use that same sketch to complete another LO! +250 pts

8/28: i dont know about you but i am so exhausted from this summer and my scrappy list is getting SUPER long from this summers myriad number of events, SOOOOOOO, check something off YOUR scrappy to-do list today for +150 pts

using a template to cut something out, misting over a die cut, doodling on a diecut, flowers... +100

8/30: It is back to school time! Today was my 1st day. What does this time of year make you think of? For me it is the excitement and anxiety of beginning a new school year, buying new notebooks and binders and pencils and crayons, and the fear of not knowing my teachers or classmates. Does this time of year mean back to work? Time for the kiddies to go to school? Time to get your sanity back with a little break from the kids? Let me know what "Back to School" time means to you in a blog of 50 or more words for +135 pts.

8/31: option 1--COMPLETE and post a LO TODAY 8/31/2010 for +300 pts! (THE LO MUST BE STARTED AND FINISHED TODAY (8/31/10) to count for the points. It CANNOT be a LO you started prior to 8/31/10. SO you have a total of 24 hours to complete one LO!) option 2--FINISH a LO you started PRIOR to 8/31/10 but after 8/1/2010 for +150 pts! option 3--START and FINISH a CARD today (8/31/10) for +75 pts! You may chose only one option.

8/9/10~8/15/10

We'll be using the day and month of our birthdays to find our weekly lift projects.

Step 1. Using numbers, write your birthday, day first, then month. For example, my birthday is September 18. So I would write this as 18-9.

Step 2. Go to the Scrapbook Dot Com gallery and find your lift. You may select the entire gallery or any subfolder inside the gallery. It's totally up to you!

Here's how you'll find your project.

The first number is the page in the Scrapbook dot com gallery that you will use.

The second number is the layout number on that page. You may count either down columns or across rows. You'll get a different page depending on which method you use.

The image you find is your scraplift project for this week.

So for my example of 18-9, I would use page 18 of the gallery (either the whole gallery, or the favorites, or inspirationals, or cutes, or funnys, etc) and then count down or over to the 9th Layout on that page.

You must include a link to your lift when you post your LO to this forum, so make sure that you save it to your favorites or save the link information so you can find it later!

*****
Remember that the SB.com gallery is constantly expanding. If you really aren't happy with the project you find, come back and try again later!*****

Points for this challenge are as follows:
100 points for using the same color scheme.

100 points for using the same or a similar topic.

100 points for using the same basic design, that is, the number and arrangement of photos, title, and embellishments.

Possible 300 total points

HAVE FUN!

1.The weekly challenge cannot be worth more than 350 pts.
2.The daily challenges can only be worth 150 pts with one exception per week up to 300 pts. So 6 days of 150 points or less and one challenge up to 300 points.
3.The daily challenges should generally be something that can be incorporated into ANY LO. Not a challenge that you must make a LO for that you wouldn't have made otherwise. But it CAN require you to make a whole LO for one challenge per week.
4.Picture challenges can only be worth up to 250 pts total added up for all pictures. There should not be more than 6 pictures for the weekly photo challenge.
5. You MUST post the challenge by 10 AM EST (which is 7AM PST) OR post the challenge the night before, preferably after 9PM your time.

I'm in! I'm going to say 40 because of the ACOT summer crop next weekend and this is probably the last scrapping month I'll have for awhile- hopefully I'll be super busy painting and packing in Sept and getting everything organized in Oct!

I'm in. I think I'll just play motivational this month. School is starting back and I'm not sure that I'll have a lot of scrapping time beyond the stuff I have to do for work.

I can host a week of challenges if you still need somebody.

I still think that you should give points for ATCs, inchies, and maybe even art journal pages, since that is something I've been doing lately. I never know what type of project to list them under.

Hi Sabrina! I Love Your New Avatar! I Barely Recognized You In The Cowboy Hat, It Suits You! Beautiful As Always!

I'll Stick Around This Month *Insert Fine Print Here* (Maybe)

I'll For Sure Give It My Best, Work Has Taken A Lot Of My Energy & This Is The Month I Decided To 'For Real' Diet.. That Means No More Soda (Once The Fridge Is Empty) & Fast Food For Me... So I'm Sure That'll Either Take My Energy Or Give Me Some.

GEE-my-KNEES. I need some kind of support group. I can't seem to stop myself. I went and did it again. I entered every freaking challenge in the whole community.

I need to change my goals. :: sigh ::

I'm going to go ahead and play for the points and I'm going to set a 12 LO goal again. That was pretty doable last month, and I think I can probably manage that again.

Sorry ladies, still recovering from CKC and preparing to host my first progressive challenge for MsSchwiet (Stacey) today. It was kind of a last minute decision so I am rushing. I am adding some new things I saw at CKC and some new techniques I was taught there. So the points list should be up shortly

you just use your Blog/Journal on sb.com to make a new entry to keep track of the daily challenges you complete.

Interactive would be something that you have to do before you can read the actual journaling. Like open/lift up a flap to read the journaling, making a pocket and stick your jouranling card in there, etc.

I like Melissa's challenges. Sometimes it feels like we are doing the same challenges over and over again. It's refreshing to have something different! but yes, they make me think, and I don't like it!

I am having a hard time with the journaling. Matt has been driving me crazy the past few days, so I keep wanting to journal about what his bad habits are. Like leaving EVERYTHING open! toothpaste, cabinets, closets. Drives me crazy!

lol! Thanks He's been under a lot of pressure lately and he is very forgetful. I try to be nice, but sometimes it's hard when he gets on my nerves! I just can't wait for his stupid training to be over with!

Megan, does the journaling block on my previous layout count as homemade? I had to cut it and format it to print around the title block? I'm just wondering what counts for this new one since I make lots of journaling blocks just like this! Thanks!


yes, it can count as homemade as long as it is not pre-made.

Melissa, I am sorry for being a pain! How picky are you going to be with our pairs? Like, if I used 2 different colors of stickles, would you count that as a pair? or would you prefer like stickles and lose glitter which is 2 types of glitter.

I completely forgot about making things that aren't a pair. I hope that is ok! I used 3 photos on my page, and 4 pp etc. I didn't count them as a pair, but I hope we can have none pairs.

I'm not going to be picky. So if you use 2 different stickles, that would be a pair. Then if you also used stickles and lose glitter, that would also be a pair.

You can use things that are non pairs... the point is to just get 8 pairs on your page. You can have as much other stuff as you want.

Yes, if you have 2 pink flowers, that would be a pair. 2 yellow flowers would count as another pair. If you have 2 handmade flowers, that would be a pair. And then 2 non-handmade flowers would also be a pair.

I hope that makes sense!
