I’m guessing you’re at least partly motivated by scrapbooking challenges or you wouldn’t be stopping by this weekend really! I hope the different challenges have helped you get a few things made that just needed a little push or the permission to sit down and craft. But I know there are plenty of times when I see a challenge that looks like a great idea that totally motivates me, but I just don’t have time to make it happen before the deadline. So guess what? I have a challenge to answer just that.
For this challenge, you pick an outdated challenge and consider it reopened for this week. Take your pick from these options:
4×6 Photo Love, which has twelve page ideas for standard-sized prints, from one single 4×6 picture right up to a dozen on a single scrapbook page.
& Now for Something Completely Different, my monthly class for 2012 at UKScrappers (though open to anyone in any country). Each month the preparation notes and supply list are posted on the tenth and the step by step project is posted on the twentieth, with a full page from start to finish in twenty steps. Each month works with a different photo requirement (different numbers or sizes – you’re free to choose any picture theme you like!) and different techniques, but as each page has to be possible in just twenty steps, the pages offer something different but nothing overwhelming. You can find the first three tutorials of the year there already, plus the April project will be posted this week.
The Adventures of Glitter Girl, the weekly series shown at Two Peas in a Bucket. If there’s a Glitter Girl challenge you’ve been meaning to try, go ahead and use this as your motivation!
Scrapbook Starting Points, with plenty of options for ways to just get started with the cutting and pasting.
Scrapbook Page Sketches, with dozens of sketches, many with videos and all with a variety of examples.
So take your pick and set your own challenge, and consider it current again! Create a new project and upload it to your blog or a page gallery, then share a link here. Entries close at the end of next weekend.
