~Monthly Challenge~
Scrapbooking with Vintage Photos

One of those things that even the most savvy of us put off when we’re getting things done off the scrapbook to do list is putting together scrapbook projects using those vintage photos.

Sometimes we’re nervous that our style won’t mesh with the aura of the photo. Sometimes we’re simply nervous because we’re handling an old photo and it’s not as easy to create a duplicate from the pre-digital era.

The use of a vintage photo becomes easier when you focus on an event/holiday and connecting a vintage photo to a timeless or CLASSIC concept like iconic characters can be a fantastic basis for a vintage layout/project.Using “vintage” look type or journaling methods to carry the aura of the vintage photo throughout your layout. Echoing the “gray” throughout the layout where black would normally rule the day.

Make your vintage layout look cohesive by echoing any bright colors in the vintage photo in the layout and mix with a lot of neutral prints and papers, stitching, journaling by hand, etc.Increase the vintage look of the entire page as a reflection of your vintage photo by using quotes that align with your chosen subject.

Distress inks and patterns are also a great choice when trying to work with vintage photos.Things that always seem to compliment vintage photos: distress paints, bronzed edges, flowers in classic colors, text, typewriter print, vintage look embellishments and actual vintage ephemera.

Scrapping with vintage photos tip – Don’t ignore the colors in the photo even if they are from the development process. Pull the reddish tint from the photo into the layout with a multitude of shades of pink/red.

Also accentuated the vintage look of the page with vintage type printing, handwritten journaling, and a presentation of an idea that is just as relevant 50 years ago as it is today…missing someone…every day of the week. These are just a few ideas how to scrap a vintage photo. Look up some of your own ideas and get started on this now.

Scrap 12 vintage photo's into 12x12 LO's. And keeping the vintage look obvious through out the LO. If you have done all 12 LO's for this Monthly Challenge you can add 5000 points to your list of points and also you can add regular points as well.

Quay, yep Common Core Standards are an initiative that I believe is nation wide. I hear about it a lot at meetings but don't know a lot about it as I don't teach a core subject and teach an elective. So sorry I'm not much help. I think it is a good thing in that it sets clear guidelines of what students should know in each course at each level.

This sounds like fun. I would love to join and I will set a challenge of 30 layouts. I am new to this site and to swaps and challenges over all. I do not understand how the points work or how you come up with the points for your layouts. Also How do I submit cards or altered projects for points? Will these be part of daily or weekly challenges? Or do I have to set up another set of goals for these items as well? Sorry for all the questions. I will be mailing my money tomorrow if thats ok. Looking forward to accomplishing this goal.

Quick question: what does everyone think of the prize categories? I know last month only one even set goal for under 10 layouts so they are only ones eligible. In the past we've had different categories like most dailies completed or drawing out of those that complete monthly. I'm fine with the way they are now but was trying to remember some of the other categories. I don't think we are big enough to add any more in though.

I agree Julie, I don't think we are big enuff' for more categories..We could probably have an extra one for the monthly challenge. A drawing for all those who did it. I can't remember all the different categories we use to have. It was mentioned to me that a $20 GC was enuff' for a prize so that way we could add more categories.

How many like having a BIG amount in your GC or is $20 ok?

And how many want more categories to win?

This sounds like fun. I would love to join and I will set a challenge of 30 layouts. I am new to this site and to swaps and challenges over all. I do not understand how the points work or how you come up with the points for your layouts. Also How do I submit cards or altered projects for points? Will these be part of daily or weekly challenges? Or do I have to set up another set of goals for these items as well? Sorry for all the questions. I will be mailing my money tomorrow if thats ok. Looking forward to accomplishing this goal.

Quick question: what does everyone think of the prize categories? I know last month only one even set goal for under 10 layouts so they are only ones eligible. In the past we've had different categories like most dailies completed or drawing out of those that complete monthly. I'm fine with the way they are now but was trying to remember some of the other categories. I don't think we are big enough to add any more in though.



I agree Julie, I don't think we are big enuff' for more categories..We could probably have an extra one for the monthly challenge. A drawing for all those who did it. I can't remember all the different categories we use to have. It was mentioned to me that a $20 GC was enuff' for a prize so that way we could add more categories.

How many like having a BIG amount in your GC or is $20 ok?

And how many want more categories to win?


I always liked the category for the one that completed the most dailies? I like the ones that you can work toward cause the ones where you draw a name I never win cause I am unlucky ...lol
But which ever way you do it is fine with me

Not sure if you are taking suggestions for new points...but I have a few .

For using a picture in the shape of a circle

For a layout with no pictures.

For making a homemade frame for your picture ..ex..button,ribbon, washi frame.

For using a new technique on your project.

For posting tutorial of a new technique you used.
Just a few suggestions

Well I'm in and I am aiming high 60 layouts cause now I'm so behind since we not moving and hubby been away during the weeks now I will get my goal




60! You are going to have a scrappy month!!!

Quay I am in for April. Will be gone about 7-8 days, need to go to Houston and finish packing out the house so we can put it on the market so I am going to shoot for 8 layouts.

I can help with dailies, I will be gone in the middle of the month, but I will have a computer so I can help.

As for categories for new prizes, I like 11-20 layouts. Sometimes you make your goal and get over 10, but it's hard to compete with someone who has 20 + layouts as a goal.

And I would love to see wet/dry embossing and using fabric as point getters

Oh yeah I have high hopes for April I'm so far behind my own personal goal I'm hoping for lots of double layouts as I have a tone of Christmas and birthday photos that need scrapping

Tesa- Good to see you here...And yard work is a bore! I agree! Yuck! Now here is a question for Julie and Tesa...

We call our lawn area a yard. DO you guys call it a garden? Becuz' here a garden is something you plant like food or even a "garden bed" ie: flowers etc...but it all is in a "yard" am I making any sense? hehehe Just wondering is all!

New Julie-
Can't wait to see your 30 LO's...I am in the progress of making Mother's Day Cards! SO I will be doing those today!

Good morning, ladies! I hope everyone has a great Saturday! Zoey, my boxer is so sweet and gentle, she never barks, but if she had death rays in her eyeballs those squirrels would be gone! She is so cute, she stands at the window and her ears just go up and down every time the squirrel moves.

Quay, your smile is gorgeous! I'm praying for all the moves and job changes and know that God will work it out just right! Welcome newbies! You will LOVE it here, the best friends anywhere!

We call the area around our house with our lawn, flowers, veggies and trees a garden. I think it's Brittish English, and yard is American English. At least that is what I was taught. Waaaay back....

what if we switch the 0-10 layouts category on prizes to 0-20 layouts. With so few actually scrapping 10 or less they usually automatically win it if they don't post over 10! I also agree with Teresa and like the prizes you work for like most dailies rather than the drawing.

Ok Ladies... today is the last day for this challenge! Let's do this month up good! I am so impressed with all the sketch LO's you guys really took the bull by the horns on the monthly this month! Congrats to those who ran with it!

Next month is going to be fun as well...I have already posted the monthly so you can get a head start in finding those vintage pics and thinking about how your going to scrap them. I love doing Vintage pics...and this is going to stretch our imagination a bit more. SO I hope you all will give the monthly a try in April!

Alright I will be gone this evening for a bit. Having a family dinner for Easter. But I will be here during the day until 2:30...so Here's to having a great Holiday and an enjoyable Easter!!!!

Be back later!

I think your right Julie...evidently living down under has the winning ticket for scrapping...well at least in your neck of the woods, what with all those cool packages of scrap stuff your recently bought! I am still so jealous!!! hehe

Ok so I was going to sit at home and scrap...BUT my DD called and asked if I would come over to her house and help her with some kid projects. She has her 3 and our 2 other DGD. So she is a bit crazy with having 5 kids around! I don't know what her problem is...I had 5 kids and I had no problem with my 5 kids at home all day!! hehehe j/k

Poor thing...waaaa! hehehe

So here I am at her house making kid projects for them to play in... we made cardboard cars they could sit in and pretend they were at a drive-in movie. We have popcorn boxes they can eat their popcorn from. And so far that is working pretty good!

We have colored some rice and put the colored rice in little juice bottles. Then filled them with beads and small objects. So they get to roll it around and find the objects buried in the rice.

She has bought rice krispies so they can make rice krispie treats.

And mini marshmallows and toothpicks so they can build a house or whatever their little brains can think to build!

And after all that...I am going home!!! woohoo I will upload what I got done this morning before I was rudely interrupted by my DD...bwhahaha so, their ya have it..my day in a nut shell waaa!

bbl

Disappointed. My household was expecting a big fight, we thought it was underwhelming and hope the next season starts with a BANG! LOL we had a bet on who would survive, I was the only one that picked Andrea to die!
