Can You Scrap One Challenge Every 3 Days?

Have you ever wanted to try the Challenges at GS but thought there is NO WAY you can do 10 challenges in a month? How about one challenge every 3 days? When you state it that way, it doesn’t seem like so much, does it? That’s all it takes. One challenge layout every 3 days and you will have your 10 challenges for the month and get a awesome collab like this one as your reward.

Our designers make it so easy to do the challenges as well.

There are at least 3 different template-type challenges each month (the 2 Template Challenges and the Desktop Challenge).

One designer each month provides a Mini Kit to use.

Do you collect the Daily Downloads from the blog? A small download each day and by the end of the month, you have a full kit. Then you use that kit for a layout the next month. This is the kit that was the Daily Download for August that is September Daily Download Challenge.

Do you enjoy using new fonts? Each month a designer picks a new font to use for the Font Challenge. This is the font for September.

If you like using Word Art, there is a new word art provided each month.

This is just 5 of the choices you have. We also have the Brush Challenge, Buffet Challenge (using any of the current month’s Buffet kits), Color Challenge (the designer picks the colors for you to use), Designer Spotlight Challenge (using any kit by the spotlight designer(s)), Hybrid Challenge (if you love hybrid projects), Inspiration Challenge (the designer picks something to be your inspiration for a layout), Mix It Up Challenge (a surprise challenge chosen by the designer), Recipe Challenge (the designer gives you a “recipe” to follow for your  layout), Scraplift Challenge (the designer picks a layout for your to mimic or “scraplift”), and the Signature Challenge (a fun way to change out your signature monthly).

We also offer two special challenges. JB Studio does a Journaling Challenge each month and if you are a fan of pocket scrapbooking, we have a P365/52 Challenge. This one nets you four challenge points if you do each week.

So how do you keep track of what you have done? First, head over to the Cookie Jar thread in the forum and make a post to help you track them (you always have access to the edit function on your post to add links to your layout in the gallery. Then, when your challenge is done, upload it to the gallery, link it in the Challenge Forum, and place the link in your post in the Cookie Jar thread. At the end of the month, Missi checks all the posts and sends PMs out to those that have completed 10 challenges.

Still not sure you can do 10 challenges? Starting in March 2014, we implemented a new program where you can accumulate your points over several months. You will receive the collab of the month in which you COMPLETE your 10 challenges. For Example: You do 5 in March, 2 in April and 6 in May – you would get the May collab. You do 7 in March and 4 in April – you get the April collab. Only rule is that after you hit 10, challenge points are not carried over. You will start the next month over at 1.

Now leave a comment and tell us what your favorite challenge is. I think mine is a tie between the templates, desktop, and signature.

Fresh Baked: September 01, 2015

Happy September! Time to start watching the colors of the leaves change. Time for fall (or spring, depending on where you are in the world!).

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

The designers definitely each made the palette their own and came up with some gorgeous designs.

GingerBread Girl Inspiration: trina513

GS_blog_GingerBreadGirlsInspiration_Header

Today we are going to show you some inspiration from one of our very own GingerBread Girls! She isn’t just any GingerBread Girl!! She is one of the creative team leads. If you are asking what is a GingerBread girl, let me explain who they are. They are GingerScraps creative team. The ladies who bring you inspiration week-after-week using the GingerScraps’ designers latest and greatest designs.

Here are a few of Trina’s layouts that just jumped out of the gallery and grabbed me. Trina has a very clean and no-nonsense way of scrapping. Her layouts are scrapped in a way that the focus is on her great photos. Most all her layouts have journaling on them. Great composition, perfect element choices and placement, and just the right papers really make Trina’s layout standout and show off the memories. Here are just a few of those layouts. All images are linked. Make sure you run over and drop her a line!
