Welcome to a weekend of scrapbooking!

online scrapbooking crop

Thanks so much for joining me for three days of scrapbooking, snapshots and prizes! You can drop in whenever you would like and take part in just one challenge or dozens!

Challenges will be posted hourly throughout the weekend, from 10am to 10pm Friday, 10am to 10pm Saturday and 8am to 8pm Sunday. That’s UK time, so you can adjust to your timezone whether you’re ahead or behind my time here. No matter where you are, I promise there’s plenty packed into this weekend to keep you busy choosing the challenges you fancy! And none of them have to be finished in the hour — you have all weekend and a little more actually. All challenges end at 6am UK time on Tuesday the 17th of August. That gives you Monday evening to keep crafting with anything you want to finish up and also some more daylight for the photography challenges if needed.

Did I just say photography challenges? Yep! This time around, our challenges will alternate on the hour. Even hours are crafting challenges and odd hours are photo challenges. So you can enter plenty of challenges by just picking up your camera and taking a picture to fit the theme! And by the end of the weekend you’ll have a collection of new photos to scrapbook too, so everybody wins!

One thing I do want to mention right up front, and that is all these challenges are for scrapbook projects you create and photos you take from now until the deadline. Older projects and existing photos are not eligible for prizes. If you would like to share something because others might find it helpful, please go ahead, but state it as such and know that links to things posted before now will not be eligible. This weekend is all about participating now! Thanks so much.

When leaving comments on posts throughout the weekend, know that if you include more than one URL in your comment, it will go into moderation. Don’t worry – I’ll approve it! It just won’t show up automatically when you post it. And if you’re having trouble posting a comment, try the preview option first, as that often helps!

If you are blogging about this weekend and would like some images to include, please feel free to use this large image for a blog post or this smaller image for your sidebar and link back to so others can join in the fun!

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them in the comments here, on any post or by emailing me (shimelle at gmail dot com). I’ll be happy to help in any way that I can!

I think that’s enough fine print — let’s get started with the crafty goodness, right?

Happy cropping!

  5. Carolyn Phillips Says:

    I’ve done a couple of LO and been out and about this afternoon taking photographs, what I’d like to know is can I wait until monday and put them on my blog in one or two posts and then post the links on the individual challenges here, or do I need to make a separate post on my blog for each one?

    Hi Shimelle,

    I just learned of your work and this site from the A-List Blogging Club. Your ideas are wonderfully refreshing and uplifting. I especially love the idea of a weekend challenge. I would like to participate in the challenge as well as blog about it, but I’m a newbie and am not clear on what you mean by a new challenge is posted every hour. Posted where? Thanks for your help.

  7. NancyLee Says:

    Brilliant work is done on this site. You can get my assignment help reviews and learn more new techniques. It is very much simple and easy to use and the color combination on the front page is so amazing and it’s influencing me a lot. i appreciate the developer’s work.
