Ready for another fun speed scrap girls!!! I know I am! Join me this Friday night at 9pm est!

I'm not sure what fun gift I am giving to you yet, but I will post it if I have it ready in time! I will not let you down though, I promise!

OK, here it is! This is the participation prize just for finishing your LO by 11pm tonight! Hope you like it!

http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee167/therottenprincess/sbd_fallsunset_LRG.jpg

The theme for this Speed Scrap is going to be YOU!! That's right, you! Either a pic of you or a pic of your favorite "things"! By "things" I mean, things other than your family, friends or pets!! We know you all love those things, but what else do you like! Share it with us!!

I'm going to go ahead and get you started off!! Here is a freebie for you that I want you to use for the Speed Scrap tonight if you can! It is some blocks that you can use for your pictures or for papers, whatever you want to do with them. There is a psd file and 1 png file for you in the download! Enjoy!!

Download Here (http://www.mediafire.com/?wyezq43yngm)

Everyone that participates gets a great Participation Prize and one lucky person gets a coupon for $5.00 to my store!

If you use one of my kits for "most" of your LO (at least 90%), I will send you a coupon for 50% off my next new kit....which is yet to be released!!

Hope to see you there! If you need a reminder, click HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/calendar.php?do=getinfo&day=2009-8-28&e=727&c=1)!

Chanin

I will be there ,cant understand those blocks?lol

It's ok, you don't have to use them! Just a little something to help out those who do want to!! If you have Photoshop, you can just open the photoshop file to start your LO and then clip your pics or papers to the blocks and you can hide the blocks you don't want to use! Does that help??

briarwoodpups
08-28-2009, 11:33 AM
Thanks for giving us a heads up! I'm going to try my best to be there tonight. And now that I have a hint as to the topic, I have a few photos to take between now and then! :)

Since my power went off just a few minutes ago (the whole neighborhood--looks like a blackout due to high temps, 102 today) I might not be able to make it. Bummer! We'll see if it comes back on...

can someone please explain how this works? this is my first time trying this

elenasworld
08-28-2009, 04:59 PM
Hi There
Every ten minutes or so, Chanin will give us an instruction as to what we need to have on the page. After the last instruction (there are usually 7) we have an hour to finish up the page and post it in the SS gallery

emeraldsong
08-28-2009, 04:59 PM
Well, generally they explain how things work right before you start.

In a nutshell, you will be given a prompt every ten minutes (use three papers, pick 1 picture, 5 elements one which must be metalic, ect). Your job is to incorporate the prompt into your LO/follow the directions. After an hour, you will have 7 prompts and one hour to finish your LO and post.

emeraldsong
08-28-2009, 05:02 PM
Oh useful tips:

In options, set your number of posts to display to 40 and to show posts linear - newest first. That way you will scroll through the least number of posts to find the next prompt or answer to your question.

Also the refresh button is your friend and posting a comment helps keep your page current.

Chanin
08-28-2009, 05:02 PM
Hello girls! You ready for tonight???

I know that we have a few newbies to speed scrapping so, I wanted to explain how this works!

Starting at 9pm, I will give instructions (aka suggestions) for your LO every 10 minutes. You do your best to do what I have instructed. There is room for creative interpretation though!!! Then at 10pm, I will give you your final instruction and then you will have 1 hour to complete your LO and post it in the Speed Scrap Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=927) and then come back to this thread and post the link to your LO, so I know that you finished in time! The point is to have fun while doing a LO, so don't stress about it! Just relax and enjoy yourself! Any other questions, just ask!!!

So, here is the first instruction of the night!!!

1. Go back to the very first post in this thread and get your freebie "Skewed Blocks" download and then open it on your page you will be scrapping or just open the psd (it is 12 x 12) to start your page!

Is everyone caught up?

1. Go back to the very first post in this thread and get your freebie "Skewed Blocks" download and then open it on your page you will be scrapping or just open the psd (it is 12 x 12) to start your page!

2. Find pictures of yourself or things that you like, not including friends or family (we know you like them!!). You can use as many as you want!! Put them in the blocks. You can use as many blocks as you want, the ones you don't use for pics, you can fill with paper or just don't include them on your page!

**Note** If you ARE NOT using the blocks. Just arrange your photos together in a group in a similar style.

3. Pick at least 2 papers, but no more than 6! Patterned or plain. Make 1 of them your background paper. The others can be used on your page however you want!

4. Put a title on your page with an Alpha!

maggie

I'm not really sure what you are asking, but I will try to answer anyway! lol

If you have it open as a psd file, put the picture you want to use on a layer above the block you want it in, then shrink the picture down so it will cover that entire block and then clip it to the block by using ctrl+alt+g

Does that help at all??? If not, ask me again...I will try again...

Chanin
08-28-2009, 05:58 PM

OH, ok, you don't necessarily have to crop the photos, but you can...when you clip them to the blocks they will crop that way also!

That's it girls! Finish up your LO by 11pm EST and post it in the Speed Scrap Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=927) and then come back here and post your link to your pic so I know you finished in time!!

I was thinking this was supposed to be about something we like. Obviously, my dogs, but with that many little blocks to fit, I though Ah hah! My rocks! :) So here are some of my rocks. Sorry that the impromptu photography does them no justice.

Here is my LO. I am thinking of it as a first page for my AAM album.

Thanks so much for the lovely template and fun SS!

Thanks for the fun SS Chanin.
Really made me go out of my comfort zone.

(there is an observation wall at the zoo for the little kids to look through holes in the fence with binoculars -- this bg paper made me think of that, so I turned the template on it's side.
