Yep, you guys love it so we're having them more often! Join me for a speed scrap tonight and I promise I won't make it tooooooooooo hard! LOL!

As usual, throughout an hour, you'll get 7 prompts to build a layout and then will have another hour to complete the layout.

Everyone who participates will get this...which is an add-on to a new kit I'm working on called Pretty Princess.

Hope you can make it Kweta!
I know you are just waiting to test out your new Elements!
It is a lot of fun and the time limit gets me to stop switching all my elements around so much!

I usually refresh the page every few minutes, or keep two browsers open with it.
I take forever to read the comments, so by the time I have read the page, there's another of comments.

Also, you can go to your Options under Quick Links and set the thread posts to 40. That helps keep the amount of pages to a minimum. :)

HollyS
11-21-2008, 06:02 PM
Ok, here we go.................over the course of the next hour I'm gonna give you ideas for building a layout. I'm not strict so you can interpret as close as possible :) After the hour is up you'll have 7 steps to follow and an hour to complete your layout. I always give a little extra time to get it uploaded and linked back here :)

As always, don't stress and just have fun! Ask any questions here in the thread...

Step 1: Find 4 pictures unframed

Ok, here's another...

Step 1: Find 4 pictures unframed
Step 2: add frames to pictures and attach all 4 together with some sort of fastener like staples, buttons, brads, entertwining ribbons, frame wrap, etc.

elenasworld
11-21-2008, 06:18 PM

Step 1: Find 4 pictures unframed
Step 2: add frames to pictures and attach all 4 together with some sort of fastener like staples, buttons, brads, entertwining ribbons, frame wrap, etc.
Step 3: pick 3 papers...two plain or lightly textured and one patterned. Using one the plain papers, make a mat of any shape and put under frame cluster.

Well sometimes when it's overwhelming, the best way to figure these things out is to do just that, play along at your own pace, and then you'll be ready for the next one. :)

Questions: To attach photos can we use different items, like staple a couple and tie a few more?

Do journaling tags count as embellies?

This is fun but a little crazy.

sorry one more question. Do the attachments we use for the photos count toward the embellies total? If I use buttons and staples does that count for 2 embellies? Sorry I'm picky

Here's mine.

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=43735&ppuser=9144

Had a bit of panic. Used the tropical heat kit by Scrapkut and thought the papers were solid but when I really zoomed in, there were tiny dots. I just paint bucketed then out and added a little texture. Hope that's ok.

Do we need to give a description of each step? Don't think so but I wanted to just say for my mats, the PP is underneath. The solid is a flower frame. I forgot to pop it up so you could see.

thanks this was a lot of fun.
