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] il.com
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 JULY 1st count towards your total points and layouts. This challenge ends on AUGUST 31st, 2011 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 11:59 PM 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 you put into 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 on this thread.

~*~DAILY CHALLENGES~*~

BONUS POINTS: YOU MAY TAKE +10 pts for completing the daily challenge by 11:59 pm (PST) on the same day/date that it was posted for! (SO the 9/2 challenge needs to be completed by 11:59 pm on 9/2 to take the +10 bonus points.)

8/1: Let's get the month started off with a clean and organized scrap space.....errr.....well a clean-er and more organized scrap space! Take a before picture of your space, exactly how it is now--then work on organizing your space for 30 minutes and share your before and AFTER pictures on the thread for +150 pts!

Another Manic Monday

bonus challenge
by Megan Ann

So we have survived. The first day of August and the first day of the school/work week--YAY! I think y'all should be rewarded! But you don't get off that easily--you need to do something to earn your reward, so I was thinking about the craziness that Monday's seem to bring--even if they are no different than any other day of your week (which is true for me, every day is pretty much the same, I don't work & school is not in session) but I still seem to have crazy Monday's. I seem to be on an organizational kick since yesterday, so I am going to challenge you to organize and prioritize. Sit down and be still for 2 minutes. (Really, actually do it, allow your body and mind to relax, even if only for 2 minutes!) Think about what you would like to accomplish in relation to scrapping this month. Then make a list of your goals you wish to accomplish in August. I write down all the goals I can think of, then go back through the list and ID which ones are my priority and what is a reasonable amount to expect myself to accomplish in one month. Re-write your list with your most important goals at the top, down to your lower priority goals near the bottom. FOR NOW, only include the number of goals you think you can accomplish in August. Don't throw your other goals away, they are important too. Just put them in a different place for now. Focus on these August goals. Create a blog entry on your sb.com blog and share your scrappy goals with us for the month of August. If you post the link to your blog on this thread by Wednesday, August 3, 2011 at 6:00 PM EST then take 200 bonus points for completing this organizational exercise!

If you complete at least ONE of your goals by 6:00 PM EST Monday, August 8, 2011 take an additional 100 bonus points for being proactive in accomplishing your goals!




8/2: I have tons of stamps that I do not use nearly enough...Get out 3 different stamps (they can be from the same set) and use at least those 3 different stamped images/words/etc. on a project: Altered Item/Layout=+150 pts, card/atc/tag=+100 pts!

8/3: My favorite!!! Use a misting product on your LO today (such as Glimmer Mists, Shimmerz Spritz, Smooch Spritz, Maya Mists, etc.) for +150 pts! If you don't have any of those products--here is a tutorial on how to make your own:

http://www.scrap-a-little.com/2009/05/make-your-own -gli...

8/4: Change your avatar (profile pic) for +120 pts!!

8/5: Find a product you own and have used in the sb.com superstore and write a review of the product! Share the link to the product page after you have submitted your review on this thread. Take +100 pts for writing one review. If you review 2 different products take an additional +50 pts for a total of +150 pts! (Sometimes the reviews are not published right away, so if yours doesn't show up immediately, don't worry--you can still get the points.)

8/6: Get out those needles and thread so you can do some hand-stitching on your project! Take +2 pts (in addition to the +1 pt per hand-stitch on the points list) for each hand-stitch on your project up to 75 stitches (or +150 pts)!

8/7: Let's help welcome Crystal's puppies to the world! Use an animal embellishment or a photograph of an animal on your project for +100 pts! If it is a dog/puppy embellie or photo take +50 additional points for a total of +150 pts!

Sorry again, your blog is going to mine too



I think it is going to mine now!


NOPE! FYI--EVERYONE! If you post a blog entry on sb.com and the address is the same as the one above--it will take whoever clicks on it to their own blog. (So it seems like the link is working b/c it takes you to your own blog, but it does that for everyone. You must post the new blog entry, then click on the "My Blog" link near the top of the entry and then when it takes you back to the list of all your entries, click on the link to the entry you want to share with us and THEN copy the link. It should look like this:

http://www.scrapbook.com/blogs/228451/view/178 313.html

It will always end in a number(dot)html

So to practice, if you have not already make a Daily Challenge tracking blog to keep track of what daily challenges you complete throughout the month, make one. If you share the right link with us so we can view your entry take +50 pts! If you have already made a DCs tracking blog, just share the correct link with us and take the same +50 pts!

8/8: I woke up very late this morning, and I hate running late! Use a clock of some sort on your page today for 150 points, or a card for 75

8/9: Today lets make some handmade flowers. There are tons of youtube videos and tutorials online for flowers if you need inspiration! Use at least 3 on your page today for 300 points! Have fun and try to make a new kind, that you've never made before!

8/10: So it has been super hot here in Texas. We are on our 41st day in a row over 100 degrees. Records of high temperatures keep getting broken, and tomorrow we will break the record of the most consecutive days over 100 degrees. Today lets use something that symbolizes heat on your project. You can use a sun, fire, a temperature gauge...use your imagination! 150 points.

8/11: Lets share the love today! Take double points for any comments you leave up to 150 extra points (75 comments)

8/12: Use 10 or more buttons on your page today for 100 points.

8/13: It rained today in Dallas! I can not remember the last time I saw rain clouds and rain! Lets use some clouds on your project for 150 pts. It can be on patterned paper, die cuts, stickers...anything you want. Just show me them clouds!

8/14: Use some sort of sparkle or bling on your page today for 150 points. It can be glimmer mist, glitter, gems...you name it!

8/15: paper piece Your card or LO. For each paper-pieced item, take 50 points up to 150 points.

For example, if you paper piece a sun on your LO or card, take 50 points. If you also paper piece an animal on the SAME project, take 50 more points for a total of 100 points. Then if you also paper piece a boat on the SAME project, take another 50 points for the maximum possible points of 150 total.

8/16: I feel grungy and I want to get messy. Get messy on your card or LO. So melt crayons or wax on your LO, or splatter paint, or finger paint on at least one half your LO for 150 points or on one half of your card for 100 on a card.

8/17: Make a LO only comparing prices now to prices of the same type items when you were a child for 150 points. Compare at least 10 items.

For example, I was a child in the 1960s, so I will look up the average cost of gas, bread, cars, milk, steak, houses, telephone service, TVs, haircuts, a movie in 1965 compared to the cost of the same items now in 2011.

8/18: Make a very dark LO or card for 125 points. Not necessarily dark in color, although it most likely should be to fit a dark subject.

Think spooky Halloween or scraps of darkness type stuff. Delve into a dark subject.

I've been meaning to scrap about a romance writer's retret at a haunted hotel in Indiana where we went ghost hunting. Boy was it spooky but fun!

8/19: Embellish your title on a card or LO for 125 points:
Pick one or more of the following options:
1. Stamp the title letters
2. Doodle around the title letters
3. Or add flowers, buttons, or ribbons to them.

8/20: Use hardware such as doorknobs or hinges on your LO or card today. 150 points for using real metal or wood. 125 points for using paper facsimiles of the hardware.

8/21: Choose a theme for your LO (only) and journal a list of at least 6 random facts about it.

I.e. Cows - show a cow or just the cow hide design and list at least 6 random facts about cows.
I.e. - Cats or aliens (mention Hanger 52 or Roswell or the year you dressed up as an alien for Halloween, etc.)

Take 275 points. Have fun with this. Silly or serious or mix it up.

8/22:I absolutely HATE Monday’s. The only thing worse than a Monday is a Tuesday after a long weekend. For your challenge today, make a card wishing someone a “Happy Monday” for +100 points. Give the card to someone for an additional +50 points.

8/23: Tuesdays are family swim at our community pool - today's challenge is to make a LO or project (+150) or a card (+75) with a "water" theme - it can be the pool, sprinkler, beach, water slides - use a picture of a loved one in the water for an extra +25 points for either option (LO, project, card).

8/24: Look on the list on the first page, find your name and then count down 3 people (if you get to the bottom of the list, start back at the top) --> go to that person's gallery and choose a LO or project (+150 points) or card (+100 points) to "lift".

8/25: Come up with ONE word that describes your love of scrapbooking +100 points. Use this word on a layout, project or card for an extra +50 points.

8/26: It's Friday and it couldn't have come any sooner!! Enjoy today - do something for YOU today! Share with us what it was for +75 points; find a way to memorialize it (card, LO, project) for an extra +100 points.

8/27: Sign up for September AGC for +100 points! Cheers!

8/28: Finish strong - if you complete 1-3 LO's, projects, or cards today, take +75 points; if you complete 4-7 LO's, projects, or cards today, take +125 points; if you complete 8 or more LO's, projects, or cards today, take +200 points.

It can also be a combo - like 3 LO's, 4 cards, 1 altered project (this is just an example).

8/29: Today is all about catching up - so today if you haven't met your monthly goal and you do by the end of the day, take +150 points; if you are already at your goal, you get +200 points.

8/30: Yeah, in honor of the late challenge today - my husband bought me a new laptop and wireless printer yesterday and since I have never had a new computer of any kind before I had NO idea how much time it would take getting set up!

So, for being patient today take +100 points.

8/31: Ok...if you email Megan Ann your final points tally, you earn +200 points today.

~*~*~*~MONTHLY CHALLENGE~*~*~*~

8/1/2011~8/31/2011


Something that has become incredibly popular very fast is video tutorials for making different embellishments and how-tos for a variety of techniques. This month I challenge you to make your own scrapbooking video tutorial! (You do not need special equipment or computer programs--the majority of digital cameras have a video feature that allows you to shoot video footage using your digital camera. If your camera does not have this feature & you do not have a video camera, borrow one from a friend!)

REQUIREMENTS:

1. Must be a minimum of 1 minute and 30 seconds long.
2. Must be related to/about scrapbooking (i.e. a technique, or embellishment, or advice/tips for new scrapbookers, etc).
3. You must upload the video to the internet so it can be shared with the other AGC players. Currently, sb.com does not allow for video uploads by members. I suggest using YouTube or Facebook--both allow you to control the privacy settings on your videos & give you a link to share the video with others. After the prizes are awarded for the month of August, you may remove your video.
4. Relax! Have FUN!

Once your video is posted and you have shared the link on this thread, Megan Ann will verify that your video meets the minimum requirements and then you can take +800 pts!!!

BONUS POINTS OPPORTUNITY: Make your video at least 2 minutes and 30 seconds long!!! +250 pts


Thank you to AshleyLadd for the idea for the monthly challenge!!!!

Challenge Volunteers! These are the new rules for people who want to volunteer to do a week of challenges.
1.The weekly challenge cannot be worth more than 400 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 SHOULD 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 again. LOVE this challenge. I'm sure you can't tell.

Put me down for 20 LOs for August. I'm struggling to make the 25 I signed up for in July and hope I make it.

If you need hostesses I'll be happy to help. I don't want to hog all the fun, however, so if you have plenty of volunteers, I'll wait for another month. Let me know.

My scrap space needs organizing and cleaning so bad but I'm embarrassed to even show the before. But I need to do it. However, I have to work overtime tonight to make up for a doctor's appointment, and I don't want to miss the finale of The Bachelorette, so I may not get it done today. Still...300 points is a lot and I need plenty of space to operate my new cricut...

woo hoo! way to go Crystal! It isn't even 5 pm and you are already done--I wish I was that on top of things...I have been taking a nap though! Best of luck to your son on his placement tests!! Geeze, when I was going into 6th grade all we had to worry about was having a fashionable pencil case and binder! Kids these days have so much more to deal with!

ok, after I posted the challenges at like 2 am this morning I forgot to log back into my account and post the points list! I need to do this stuff not at 2 am. So I am going to post the points list in a few mins.

Ashley & Elaine, thank you for volunteering to host a week of challenges--I will also be assigning the weeks in a short while!

Keep cleaning ladies...and if you get a chance, check in on the thread around 5:30 pm for a special treat!

Challenge Volunteers! These are the new rules for people who want to volunteer to do a week of challenges.
1.The weekly challenge cannot be worth more than 400 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 SHOULD post the challenge by 10 AM EST (which is 7AM PST) OR post the challenge the night before, preferably after 9PM your time.

Another Manic Monday

bonus challenge
by Megan Ann

So we have survived. The first day of August and the first day of the school/work week--YAY! I think y'all should be rewarded! But you don't get off that easily--you need to do something to earn your reward, so I was thinking about the craziness that Monday's seem to bring--even if they are no different than any other day of your week (which is true for me, every day is pretty much the same, I don't work & school is not in session) but I still seem to have crazy Monday's. I seem to be on an organizational kick since yesterday, so I am going to challenge you to organize and prioritize. Sit down and be still for 2 minutes. (Really, actually do it, allow your body and mind to relax, even if only for 2 minutes!) Think about what you would like to accomplish in relation to scrapping this month. Then make a list of your goals you wish to accomplish in August. I write down all the goals I can think of, then go back through the list and ID which ones are my priority and what is a reasonable amount to expect myself to accomplish in one month. Re-write your list with your most important goals at the top, down to your lower priority goals near the bottom. FOR NOW, only include the number of goals you think you can accomplish in August. Don't throw your other goals away, they are important too. Just put them in a different place for now. Focus on these August goals. Create a blog entry on your sb.com blog and share your scrappy goals with us for the month of August. If you post the link to your blog on this thread by Wednesday, August 3, 2011 at 6:00 PM EST then take 200 bonus points for completing this organizational exercise!

If you complete at least ONE of your goals by 6:00 PM EST Monday, August 8, 2011 take an additional 100 bonus points for being proactive in accomplishing your goals!

8/1-8/7 Pictures
This one is my self portrait, nothing happens in our family right now that doesn't include this little cherub.


Kiara By Nana Linda J

This one represents one of my fears, my son is currently in an ugly custody battle to be able to see his daughter...long story.. I am afraid they will take this beautiful baby out of his life and he will not be able to handle it.

My son and granddaughter By Nana Linda J


This represents one of my passions, Family! I always thought I would have several kids coming from a large family. I was only blessed with one, my son. He is now blessed with his daughter and we are all head over heels for her.

Thank you so much for letting me know!! It is supposed to be worth 20 points this month and say only hidden pics/journaling on the front of your LO. NO POINTS for journaling that is just written/taped to the back of your LO.

OK ladies, I apologize for having a duplicate on the points list and I have now corrected it. Also, I did something I rarely do, but since I was editing the points list I added points for doodling, since it was requested last month, but I had forgotten to add it today (I was doing the points list at 2 am this morning! I guess that was not the best time to be doing it.)

So sorry if you already printed it--you probably want to reprint it now.

no, this is an acetate or transparency
20 - my own design, as far as I know, I just sat down and started working.

15 - 5 per person/animal in each pic
10 - LO with 3 pics
20 - 1 per word
10 - handwritten

155 Total

+5 - update siggy This get counted INTO your points as well





You have two pp's (the background paper and the paper you stamped on) so that would equal 10 pts

You have three inks (alcohol ink, distress ink, and the ink you journaled with) eqals 15pts

Add 10 pts for creating a LO that is 12x12 (in the 10pts items list first on list)

If you created the pin that is also 10pts for you

Add 10 pts for embossing (on your grungeboard)
------------------------- ------------------------- -----


Two questions for MEGAN for this:

1) Does/can she count the title points (she handwrote it in the journal block next to name.
2) Does/can she count the two pearls/beads in the 1pt catagory for the brads/pears/etc?

------------------------- -----------------------

Hope I was a help. I know this can be confusing

To answer question #2 there is a pearl point option along with the brads, buttons, and jewels list, worth 1 point each.

Yes, you can count 1 pt per letter in the title, even if it is a handwritten title. And pearl=1 pt PER pearl.

8/2: I have tons of stamps that I do not use nearly enough...Get out 3 different stamps (they can be from the same set) and use at least those 3 different stamped images/words/etc. on a project: Altered Item/Layout=+150 pts, card/atc/tag=+100 pts!

Thank you all for the help! I think I got it all under control..maybe..sorta.

(I didn't add in embossing points because the grunge was done in Perfect Pearls)

Crystal.... it would be easiest to keep your brad, eyelets, pearls, gems, etc. points all together in one shot/catagory. That is my opinion. So you have 1 brad, 2 silver pearls on the lo. Equals 3pts for the catagory of brads, pearls, etc.

You gave yourself one point for the pin and it is 10 points.

My take on the grunge board is that if it is 5 seperate pieces than yes, count each one. That would be Megans call again.... for she is house president.

Group them together...that would have probably been easier...I don't think I should try thinking before at least a full pot of coffee has been consumed, or after midnight.

Thanks for catching the pin for me! =)

Can you refresh my memory regarding counting points when you do a daily challenge?

For instance, I'm making a card for today's 3 stamp challenge. So I get 100 points, but do I also add the points for all the other stuff (pp's used, embellies, techniques, etc)? Thanks!

Oh, and if I post the pic tomorrow, I still get the 100 points just not the extra "timely" points, right?

Yes you can collect points on a card, altered item, and/or LO. You can collect points tomorrow, just NOT the plus 10 for done same day. You can combine dailies together also.

my BFF and her 2 kids just spent the last 2 days here! We had so much fun and even though we haven't seen each other in over 2 years we always pick up where we left off being lazy and goofy! Anyways after 2 days with 3 kids my house looks like a bomb hit it! I have some major cleaning to tackle including my scrappy space! So tired now though so will have to wait!
