OCTOBER 2014 PROGRESSIVE Scrap Challenge

Welcome to the October Progressive Challenge. I am Vicki of  Dana’s Footprint Digital Design I will be your host this month .

My co host’s are Ginger of  Ginger’s Scraps N Pixels & Darlene of Studio4Designworks

So let’s get to the task at hand and have some fun! The object of the Progressive is to complete one page over the course of three weeks by following instructions given in tasks posted each week. A progressive scrap is a *slow* speed scrap and I know lots of you like speed scraps, but may not have the time. So here’s how it will work.

On the first of each month, Prompt 1 will be posted, consisting of instructions for starting a scrapbook page that will then be built upon through additional instructions every 3 days.

The idea is to work along with the challenge as the tasks are being announced, each task to be completed & posted prior to starting on the next prompt. (Once you post a prompt’s results, you’re finished. Don’t change your work for that particular prompt.)

At the end of the third week, you should have a completed page!

It’s fine to start late or catch up if you miss a prompt. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one. It’s more fun that way!

I will be giving you a download that consists of either papers or ellies to work with on each prompt. By the end of the Challenge, you will have a great little kit that was created by myself – Vicki of Dana of Dana’s Footprint Designs, Darlene of Studio4 Designworks & Ginger of Ginger’s Scraps ’N Pixels.

——————————————————————————

So to recap – here’s the order:

1. On the first day of the month we will post Prompt 1. Then, there will be a post every three days with a new prompt.

2. Add only the items listed in the prompt given. You may add/alter shadows at any time.

3. Once you’ve posted your layout for that particular prompt, it is done and you may not go back and change it. You may only build on the previous prompt layout following the new step for the next prompt.

4. We will post the prompts sequentially in the thread. If you have missed a prompt, it’s fine to start late or catch up. Just be sure to complete & post each task before you look at or start the next one.

5. Post your layouts no later than midnight (EST) of the day before the next step is due – this will be every three days.

6. Post your layouts in the *Progressive Challenge* gallery.

7. Link your layout back to this forum thread so we can have a look at your creations and leave you some love!

8. In lieu of a posting bonus, by the end of the challenge, you will have yourselves a nice little kit.

9. This challenge counts towards the Scrapping 7 Challenge!

Here is the kit you will have by the time you are done. It coordinates with the lovely collab the designers have created this month along with Posting Bonuses for other challenges. You will have a lovely HUGE kit when you are done if you participate in all of the challenges!

SPLENDID FALL DAY

Hi!  Tricia of Seoul 2 Soul Scraps here with this month’s Font Challenge.

It is fall here in the U.S. and for me that means pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin!  I love pumpkin candles, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin lattes.  During a search for pumpkin latte recipes, I stumbled across this font.  Someone had used it to write “Pumpkin Lattte” on their website. It is so unique, I thought it would be fun to use it for this month’s challenge.

The font is called Admiration Pains by Jonathan Harris. You can download it for free (personal use only) from DaFont by clicking HERE or on the image below.

Everyone who participates this month will receive this beautiful fall participation prize by April of LyllahRaven Designs.

SEPTEMBER 2014 PROGRESSIVE Scrap Challenge
Welcome to the SEPTEMBER Progressive Challenge. Darlene here, of Studio4 Designworks, and I will be your host this month. I hope the Summer has been fantastic for you all and for those with young ones, it’s time too pack them off to school. That should mean you have more time to scrap! And I know I have to apologize as I ran out of time and didn’t get mine completed last month. I’m hoping to find time today before I have to get back to work tomorrow. August was a crazy month for me, and I just found out I’m going to be a Grandma – so lots of excitement in my family right now!

The other contributors and hosts you know well if you’ve been a participant of past Progressives, Ginger of Ginger of Gingers Scraps N Pixels & Vicki of Dana’s Footprint Digital Design.

So let’s get to the task at hand and have some fun! The object of the Progressive is to complete one page over the course of three weeks by following instructions given in tasks posted each week.

Here is the kit you will have by the time you are done – AUTUMN LOVE. It coordinates with the lovely collab the designers have created this month along with Posting Bonuses for other challenges. You will have a lovely HUGE kit when you are done if you participate in all of the challenges!

PROMPT 1 – MONDAY, September 1st

Zip one has seven papers in it. Choose one as your background. Next I want you to create a cluster of papers. It must be 3 or 4 papers, all reduced down in size, or create rectangular or square shapes and clip your papers to it. They should vary in size. They must be stacked, one on top of the other, angled in any direction as you like. This will act as the main focal point of your page, so place it strategically. Then, I want you to duplicate those same 3 papers, reduce it down to a small sized group and place it in any one of the 4 corners of your page.

Post your first prompt in the GALLERY and then back here so we can all see and enjoy what we’re all doing! Please leave some love on each others layouts as it always nice to see some comments.
Have your layout posted for Prompt 1 by Thursday, September 4th, 4pm CST.
