Hi Ladies, Monday's Chat will be a speed scrap, lots of fun and giggles at these kinds of scraps so if you can find the time to be free at 9pm est come along and play. I will be giving you your steps and you will get a page done.

HOw it works:
you get given a step about every 10 minutes in the chat room across one hour then you have another hour to post your layout in the speed scrap gallery Day 1 (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1051) and post the link from the address bar at the top of your browser back here in this thread.

If you don't have a particular thing I ask you to add to your page you can improvise with something similar. It's all about the fun remember!!

I hope you all can find the time to come along it is lots of fun :)

I will be giving away this cu freebie at the chat too :)


I will be posting the steps here in the forum too for those who are still a little bit too shy to come into the chat room or in case you miss it

1. Place 1 Solid color or textured Paper as your background

2. Place 1 thick strip of patterned paper across the page

3. Cluster up to 3 Photos layering them on top of the strip of patterned paper (adapted for those you didn't have 3)

4. Use no less than 5 elements to make a cluster that overlaps it all on the right hand side of the page

5. Title your page on the top right area

6. we're nearly there Journal on the left side of the strip of patterned paper, use a tag or piece of paper if you need to :)

7. Place a circle of contrasting Patterned paper below it all and centered so it protrudes below the other paper strip

That's it finish up and post, you can add whatever you like after doing the steps :)
Remember to post your link here too so we can leave you some loving!!

here's my layout

Can't wait to play

I am too shy! right Tracy!!

This sounds do-able. I have a test on Tuesday for which I need to study, but I'll try to make it!

01-31-2010, 10:36 PM
This sounds like fun. I shall be there.
Carmen shy?????

01-31-2010, 11:04 PM
Me too, count me in! I'm not shy, but my computer is acting up, and it doesn't like the chat and my scrapbooking software open together. SO...I'll be hanging in the thread!

I've never done a chat room but I'll give it a shot tonight.

02-01-2010, 09:47 AM
Whooohoo! I'll be there! :(( Tracy, that is a wonderful little goodie your handing out, can't pass that one up! :XX

Sally, my computer doesn't like both programs open either, Elements runs really sloooowwww - so, I try to just pull all of the pieces out of the kit when the steps are posted and then finish it up after the chat! :DD

Who said Carmen was shy?! pfffft! :l

02-01-2010, 01:20 PM

02-01-2010, 11:50 PM
Thanks again, Tracy for hosting. It was a new perspctive on scrapping, that's for sure!
I screwed it up and put the title on the wrong side. I couldn't find the 3rd picture in the series and finally just decided to throw it up here as is, since I'm already past the deadline. :(

02-02-2010, 12:08 AM
Thanks for hosting Tracy! I look forward to this every Monday. Here is my layout. Sorry I'm late posting. http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=49991&limit=recent

Superb job from everyone, this was super fun and you all did amazing pages, I am loving the gallery at the moment LOL :) I love all the different takes on the challenge too!!

02-02-2010, 12:58 AM
Those were great instructions, Tracy! I hope I did mine right. Here it is and thanks for the gardenias! (My internet went out while I was doing my page, so I had to finish up everything I had open so I could reboot, thus the late hour.)


02-02-2010, 01:38 AM
Here's mine... finally! It's been an extra busy night with the kiddies. And now I've got to run or my dh is gonna be upset, too. LOL So I'll be back tomorrow to leave love for everyone. Awesome layouts in the gallery everyone! Very lovely pages!

TRACY! I am so sorry about cutting out of the chat early last night! I ended up being up half the night with a little girl who was throwing up! :( By the time I got back to the chat, it was about 10:30 and you all were gone - I'm finishing up my layout now and will have it posted soon!

Also wanted to say a big THANK YOU for hosting the chat and for the fabulous CU goodie!! These chats are so much fun!! :DD
