View Full Version : Thursday Speed Scrap with mITSYBELLE

02-04-2010, 06:42 PM
Hello there Ladies,

I'm stealing this post from Kimberkatt who stole it from Toiny who stole it from Tracy!!! Who says it sooooooo well, lol :DD

Thursday'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 9.30pm EST come along and play. I will be giving you your steps and you will get a page done. I will also be posting the steps in the forum for those that want to play along a little later.

How it works:
You are 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 4 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 and play today!

I will be giving away a little freebie during the chat but you must be there to get it :DD

Only 3 hrs to go!!!


1. Chose a background paper and one photo, place the Photo in the centre of the page in two different ways ie: one color one b/white or one normal one faded into background (be creative)

2. Find two long elements ie: ribbon, border or cut your own strips from a different paper and place across the centre of the page (horizontally) under the photos (unless you have a blended photo, lol)

3. Add some foliage (or similar) both under and around different parts of your photo/photos to create a cluster base, you may use as many as you like.

4. Add a string or curly ribbon mingled with the foliage

5. Find an element or two that ‘dangles’ and hang it from your cluster of foliage ie: charm, tag or jewel.

6. Add a few small elements to your cluster ie: buttons, bows, flowers beads, trying to centre mainly on the centre but you can scatter gently outwards and have peek-a-boo bits.

7. Add a title or wording to your layout, high middle on the right hand side.

8. Add a little journaling to the bottom left hand side or on your tag.
9. Finish off by shadowing appropriately and tweaking where desired.

Here's mine

I will be there, but my scrapbook and the chat programs don't like each other, so I may be in and out.

Woo Hoo, I won't be alone afterall :DD

I might be able to make this one! Let's hope the boys behave! I just bought a ton of great kits at the Studio - one would be silly to not take advantage of 60% and I'm super excited to use some of these kits :)

When I opened the gallery this morning I saw all these beautiful layouts and I had to come here and read what the instructions were for you all to make so great pages! I was curious. Maybe Jeanette made it too easy! They all look so pretty.

02-05-2010, 03:27 AM
No, Jeanette did not make it too easy. I have to say I think hers was the toughest speed scrap yet;) But the results are stunning! Everyone's layouts look so wonderful! And now I'm very late getting this done after kids finally in bed. Thanks for the challenge, Jeanette! Here's mine:

The toughest!!!! Oooops I thought I was being easy .... I must tone down, I must tone down :)

02-05-2010, 05:37 AM
LOL I thought the exact same thing! Then I found the instructions & I didn't think that sounded easy at all... let alone in an hour!

I am amazed at the gorgeous LO's this morning. Y'all ROCK at these speed scraps.

oooo, I like those instructions! Sorry I couldn't stay last night Jeanette, I was trying to force myself to stay awake, but the headache was winning! :rolleyes:

Really sorry I missed the speed scrap last night, it wasn't the only thing I missed either, unfortunately. Now after sleeping for a good 15 hours, I think I'm on the mend and here's my speed scrap done from the instructions mITSYBELLE posted.
