Red face BONUS TASK!! Digi-Scrap Progressive Challenge - 7-31-12

The progressive challenges only run for 4 weeks each month, so this is a FREE week.

As a BONUS TASK:

(1) If you're so inclined, why not turn your completed page from last week into wall art or a hybrid page.

For a hybrid page: Print out your page in 8x8" size on photo paper, then add the 8x8 page to 12x12 cardstock and add embellies as desired. Then pop it into either a 12x12 frame or album.

Another idea is to use the completed page, have it printed as a 12x12 and frame it. (See posts #3-#7 below for some 12x12 printing info.)

(2) The VSBN Scrappin' Fair 2012 is in progress. Go here to pick a challenge and use the four tasks from either the June or July digi-scrap progressive challenges as the format for the challenge. I'm not sure if all the challenges will fit, but look 'em over and see what you can come up with. You have until Saturday, August 18, 2012 at 10 p.m. to complete your pages for the Scrappin' Fair competition.

(3) Last idea is to go to any of the regular challenges, digi challenges or Scrappin' Fair challenges and do your own thing! Let's fill up the galleries with digi wonderment!

Keyword, if you decide to do any of these is: DGSCPR002BONUS (plus the keyword for the specific challenge you choose.)

Have fun!

Come on back next Tuesday for a new progressive challenge!

you could always send it out to be printed. i have signed up for groupon and there is always some company or another doing photo to canvas prints at half off. i have done a few of my husbands photographs on canvas. that would be lovely why to showcase "Mother's Hands". i did a simlar scrapbook page centered around a photo of my dad's hands, i knew i wanted it for framing so i did it 8x10 so i could print it at home and framed one for each of my sisters with an envie taped to the back with the poem "my father's hands" your page is beautiful and deserves to be treated as art!

Default Scrapbook Challenge & Printing Info!!!!!!!

Candy--Persnickety Prints does a great job printing 12x12 pages. So does Scrapbooks Please, which is a little cheaper and offers specials for 99 cents pretty often. Those are my two favorite companies. They're online companies, so you can google them.

{Update: Funny, as I was typing this, Lori posted another message with 2 links to scrapbook page printing companies. Her second link is for Scrapbooks Please, which is one of the companies I suggested. They're currently only charging 99 cents until August 8th--that is the best price around!! I've ordered their prints and they're good!}

I think there is a blanket shipping charge with both companies, so I usually order several at a time. I purchased a lump of credits from Persnickety which I will be using soon. All you need to do is save your file as a jpeg (3600x3600 if possible) so it will give you a good print. Then all you do is upload to the printing site (they'll walk you thru it.)

Lori--the scrapbooking fair is the VSBN (Virtual Scrapbooking Night) challenges. They were posted this weekend and you have until August 18 to finish whatever challenges you want to do. They're for both paper and digi scrappers. You have 2 hours to complete a challenge (honor system.) Then you upload to the gallery and judges will pick the winners for each challenge sometime after August 18.

You can find the VSBN link on the SCS home page, down near the bottom of the list of challenges on the right side of the page (scroll down.) For your convenience, here is the link: Virtual Scrapbooking Night Forum - Scrapbook Meetup & Challenges.

The challenges themselves are in the third post down, but you'll want to browse some of the other links to get the gist of things. SCS has a VSBN 3-4 times a year.

For anyone who hasn't been there, a lot of us scrappers hang out in the "Goals" thread where a lot of info about upcoming events get posted. We share our ideas and pages and you can decide on a goal # of pages you'd like to try to get done each month (not required, but I find it helps!) The gals are very nice there and the support and encouragement is great. A new thread is created by Lela (lmn) at the start of each month. Here's a link to the August Goals thread which has just been started:

August 2012 Scrap Pages & Scrap Chat -- sbc12aug

And, finally, here is the sub-forum I have bookmarked on my computer which takes you to all of the scrap challenge links:

Splitcoaststampers Scrapbook Challenges Forum - Information, Ideas, Discussion & More

Hope this helps!

Wendy

oh wendy thanks for all that. there is so much info. i get befuddled too easily, so i need to go back tomorrow when i am more well rested. (menopause and its 3.5 hours of sleep before i wake up in a puddle of sweat and anxiety that makes more sleep impossible, aint it grand?)

Ah yes, Lori--those days are such fun! There definitely is a ton of info and I can relate to the overwhelmed feeling. It took me quite a while before I felt comfortable navigating SCS and I find making some bookmarks on my toolbar and desktop help me a lot.

Take your time--the scrapbook threads aren't going anywhere!
