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!! Reminder to bring a friend!! 8 AM, 12PM, 5 PM on Saturday and 12PM and 3PM on Sunday.

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.

March 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
****I will contact you after the challenge requesting send me a PM for your top TWO votes
*****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

STEP TWO

1. Add a banner by cutting the background paper
2. background
3. Use decorative scissors on at least one side of the one of the papers
4. splattered background

6. apply more than one stamp {hummm where is the trick ‘cause what will happen next!!!]\}
7. water distress in this style- Water Distress
8. moisten the edges and curl a side up
9. add stickles or glitter to the entire page, the edges, or select parts of the patterns
10. Create a stitched border of line on your paper. Here's some ideas
11. Either your project must be shaped as a large circle or it must contain a large circle with a lacey circle.
12. use a border punch on at least on of your papers
13. Use circle punches under some paper to give the page depth. Like this
14. burn the edges or use soot colored ink
15. Fabric for Background
16. tear the edges
17. Create a pattern paper by masking
18. crumble, wad, and then unfold and straighten
19. Mask and then Stencil
20. use ink, paint or even a marker to make your own polka dots if you use ink or paint share with the group what strange object you used to make the uniform pock-a-dots (I use bingo markers, bubble wrap, pencil tops)
21. Gabriella P's ruffled edge.
22. use six or more pattern papers

25. Use an old book or magazine page as one of your papers

26. STEP FOUR: Butterflies have ALWAYS been popular so let's honor them with a step to create one. You can use a stamp or die cut but you MUST add to it. May it layered add transparencies to the wings or even add stamps but go the extra mile to give it a little home-made quality. Check out the flying unicorn for some amazing inspiration.

Me too I can't wait ...they told us we had to work Saturday for inventory probably 12 hours but our network was down today and didn't get working until lunch time so production lost 4 hours so they have to work Saturday (I don't have to work when production does usually) So hopefully I will be here for the progressive.

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:

**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

Well considering the luck I've had with trying to do my homework for my computer class, there probably will be lots of things flying in this house if that kind of luck continues into tomorrow.

Okay the baby turns 2 on Sunday so I can't play Sunday so I have one planned for Friday night, Saturday morning, afternoon and evening.

I sure have missed our scrap time together and hope some of you Are interested in continuing this challenge.

Now that brings me to another concern. I don't have the time like I did to update things with new ideas. Creating the links and such really became a full time kind of job. I was thinking of down sizing the templates but keep new ideas flowing through the pinterest links. So I'd keep our favorite things on the template and offer new things just for that month. If any of the new ideas are big hits then they can get permanently add to the template. I have been adding everything to the template. Mostly because I want a resource for new ideas, but now with pinterest I have a place to store new ideas.

So what do you all think of a smaller template? I'll also need to know which techniques are must haves. And who will be around? And does anyone have time to compose a PM to invite people that have played in the past to come on out next weekend?

Now that is the question... How to trim. Surprised Anna you didn't suggest trimming step 4 all the way off. Lol. I just realized 6pm Saturday is a big movie in the park night with a pumpkin carving contest my son and I plan to enter. So we may go right from the noon round into the evening round and the evening round will be question after question and I'll reveal the steps after the questions are all answered

Here I am!

For me, it was easier when we only had 5-10 options to choose from for each step. I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the choices. Sure, sometimes "nothing" wanted to work on my page, but that was part of the challenge. I may have to throw numbers in a bag and just draw out a random number for each step and use that as my "choice" for which one to do...I'd probably

I cannot believe the baby is TWO!!! Are we SURE that is right?!

Can I even tell you that I haven't scrapped in months since my son was born and I think this is just the thing to give me a kick in the pants to get going again!?!?!

I'm in for Saturday AM/afternoon.

I am also amazed at all of the ideas you share, Stacey, and would be totally OK if you wanted to pare it back to make it easier on yourself.

Lori I think I was the opposite of you. While prego I didn't scrap but maybe for a few progressive. Two years ago the weekend he was born I was ready to get right in there, but my body didn't want to. I've been pretty motivated and used scrap as an escape, but lately I work a bit every week but not like the right after baby stuff. Sure hope you can join us I think it'll be fun

Stacey, the title on this thread stills says " next live round Sept 26 " ...not sure if it matters, especially since the current progressive thread is up and going.

Okay, I have to chug some coffee and get my brain to wake up!

CRAZES CRAZES

3. Step four: Buttons Buttons and more buttons. Hey, show me your buttons. Not any old buttons but let me see those handmade buttons.here's a few tutorials to try: a video of buttons and clay buttons

4. Step Four: Stick pins, stick pins every where why not on our creation too. Add a homemade stick pin. Use whatever technique you like for a homemade stick pin, but it must be homemade. frosted design stick pins

5. Step Four: Flags are now all the craze. You will need to take the time to MAKE a flag for your page. Sorry no store bought flags welcome. So make or cut a pole shape and attach a flag of some sort. You should put about 15 minutes worth of work into the flag so make it cute and detailed. Here's an example of a very cute twirled flag. Sketch support flag ideas.

6. Step four: Check out the swirlydo tutorials and make any of the suggested items from that website.swirlydo site

7. Step four- Check out this collection of new techniques and find something to try on your page. New Techniques

8. Step four- Make a banner from a non traditional banner shape... Think hearts and butterflies. Consider some of the shape punches you have in your collection... Here's a great example

9. Step four- Add origami to your page. Check out this site for ideas and instructions. origami club

10. Step four – get inspired by mother nature. Make some kind of handmade embellishment but have it honor mother nature. Please explain what you will add. Here are some ideas Art or Painted leaves

11. Step four- Inspiration is everywhere. Use this sketch support to find your inspiration for an embellishment. I personally love how the one artist turned the sketch into layered baseball. So visit this sketch support add-on and make an embellishment.

12. STEP FOUR- It's turkey hunting season. Hunt up a good home-made turkey and add it to your page. Here's some inspiration.

13. STEP FOUR- Clocks are now all the craze. You will need to take the time to MAKE a clock for your page. Sorry no store bought flags welcome. Here are some tutorials. You could use a stamp or print an image if a clock, but you need to add more details to it. Quilled Clock and Vintage clock and primas altered clock Plus clock images Or add a bottle cap pocket watch

14. STEP FOUR- Make a shaker box. I’ll post a tutorial but if you think outside the “shaker box” LOL you may find some packaging around the house that will work well as a shaker box. Shaker Box Tutorial

15. STEP FOUR: doiley's are ever where and used in a lot of different ways handmade doily

16. Step four- Many Americans love the Fourth of July for the fireworks. Show off the love of your country (no matter what country that may be ) by making a firework by quilling. Here's an idea. or a simple firework

17. step four- Many pages look perfect with a tree. Search the gallery for a tree you can scraplift. Post the original layout or tutorial you followed to make a tree. Here's a great tutorial for a vine but I think it looks more like a tree. Amazing ideas. A tree dolled-up it [url=http://www.cookingwithcricut.com/2011/12/day-15-summer time-fun.html]Baker's Twine[/url.] and distressed cardboard winter trees Half circle trees

18. STEP FOUR: Tickets are everywhere but instead of buying one at the store make one suing these very simple steps. Be sure to embellish it with stickers, die-cuts, stamps, or paper-piecing to make it worth the 20 minutes!

19. step four- Here's an alternative way to use a mask. I used a sleeve for a translucent project folder. Just grab some dimension paint and fill in areas with stickles or glitter. Remember most dimension paints are not acid-free. So protect it was a layer of cardstock or place it away from pictures.

20. step four- Fences look great in layouts. Make your own fence. This includes using one on your die-cut machine, but be sure to put a little time into it- add doddles or chalk the edges to give it definition. Here's a tutorial on hand-cutting your own fence.

21. Step Four: Banners are now all the craze. You will need to take the time to MAKE a banner for your page. Sorry no store bough banners welcome. You can use the blank chipboard triangles (I've also seen people use the round tags)for the banner, but it must otherwise be from scratch. One other requirement your banner must have at least FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT triangles. Here's a tutorial on a ruffled banner, circle & sewn flower, doily banner, and here's a clothes line sketch. And here's a trick to make perfect triangles. Circle sewn and used as banners doily banner clothes line pagemap clothes line. Cut through paper to create a [url=http://forscrappingo utloud.blogspot.com/2012/03/dusty-attic-b looms.html?m=1]banner[/url. Here’s more goodies Waving pennants

22. Step four: Save money and the environment. GO GREEN. Make an embellishment from a soda can. Yes cut one open and use it like paper. I've seen butterflies, flowers, and teddy bears. If the front of the can does not coordinate to your page use the backside. Tutorials and ideas:Butterflies or Metal Flowers

23. Step four: Make a homemade snowflake:*Here's one a bit bulk but cool.**Plus a good old fold and cut

24. STEP FOUR: Your see these everywhere so make your own layered embellishments

25. Use a ribbon and make something other than a bow or flower . Try a Butterfly , a Fish, or Paper clip butterfly.

26. STEP FOUR: Butterflies have ALWAYS been popular so let's honor them with a step to create one. You can use a stamp or die cut but you MUST add to it. May it layered add transparencies to the wings or even add stamps but go the extra mile to give it a little home-made quality. Check out the flying unicorn for some amazing inspiration. Feels free to print out one of the many samples I have stored on page 70 of the progressive challenge, but again make it hybrid a little computer and a little you- home-made.

27. Add feathers to your layout. If you don't have them try clay painted feathers or add paper feathers or [url=http://pinterest.com/pin/29766047507655749 /]Duct tape feathers[/url
