National Scrapbook Day - Online Crop Challenges

Posted by Melodee Cloud

In celebration of "NSD" t's time for another fun-filled, ScrapbookSteals online crop! What does this mean? That tomorrow, Friday 5/4 from 6PM - 10 PM MST, you can join us chatting via UStream online. We will be having giveaways, games and, of course, scrapbooking challenges!

In an effort to give each of you time to complete as many of the crop challenges as possible I am posting the challenges for you today so that you can get prepping and get the wheels turning.

NSD Challenge #1 - This challenge is to complete the Turquoise Mid Week Mojo sketch #1. Here is a copy of the sketch if you haven't gotten started on it already.

NSD Online Crop Challenge #2 - Turn Back Time: Let's see a layout about you! Not a layout about the current you, but a layout about you from way back when. Show us your baby photos, elementary days or even a peek at the high school life. Whatever you choose your photos must be from before the age of 25.

NSD Online Crop Challenge #3 - Sassy Springtime: Now that spring is here and the flowers are in bloom, your challenge is to create a layout about whatever you want but let's see those spunky spring pinks, yellows, blues and greens. The only other catch is that your layout must include flowers in some way whether it be the paper, embellishments or photos.

NSD Online Crop Challenge #4 - Stitch it Up!: You are probably well aware that quilting inspired layouts which have a splash of stitching are on the up and up. Your challenge is to use this quilters block as inspiration for your project which can be a layout, altered piece or card. Just be sure that your project includes stitching.

Now that your wheels are spinning on what to create for your challenges, here is what you need to do in order to be eligible for a prize in a random drawing.

  • Your creations need to be posted somewhere online (our Facebook page, an public online gallery, etc) no later than Monday, May 7th at 11:59 PM. Your creation then needs to be linked to the appropriate ScrapbookSteals blog posting. For example, all challenge #1 creations must be posted to the Fancy Pants Off to School blog posting. All challenge #2 creations must be posted to the "Turn back Time" blog posting, all challenge #3 creations must be posted to the "Sassy Springtime" blog posting and all challenge #4 creations must be posted to the "Stitch it Up!" blog posting.
  • A random winner will then be selected for each challenge via and announced on the Turquoise #2 Mid Week Mojo posting next week.

Good luck and have fun! Be sure to stop in tomorrow for our chat and join in on all of the fun.
