VSBN SUPPLY LIST
 
Most supplies used are from what you already own, your stash. However, as Hosts put together their challenges and they think you need something specific (color, tool, sketch, etc), we will add to this list. :D

SOME ADD-ONS FOR VSBN WEEKEND:
* Flowers
* Variety of Embellishments
* Pattern Paper
* Buttons
* Embossing Item
* Something to alter
* Stamp(s)
* You will need to make a 'movable' element
* Pictures that span over time (can be days, month, year etc.)

hehe.. .this made me giggle as I've been helping another mom lately watching her almost 2 yr old while she runs errands one day a week (dad's in Afghanistan) and he refers to a train as a "woohoo." Every time he saw a pic of a train or our train set, he would say "woohoo." Very sweet lil boy :D

3Fries 02-20-2012 07:17 AM

It's hard to believe that is nearly the end of February, but I know the VSBN will be here before we know it! Can't wait!

Well aren't you very sweet to give the other mom a hand! We're retired military but we were active duty when my children were young and my husband would be gone months at a time and I did not have the blessing of helping hands. Many a moment (or day) I wish I had someone to help me out even for 10 minutes so I could get a break, cat nap, or time alone to breath. Your a kind soul doing this!

Thanks Mary Pat - I'm not sure who gets the bigger blessing from this, her or me, but I know I appreciate the freedoms that we have and have been asking God to reveal ways that I can serve to show my appreciation. This is small in comparison to the sacrifice they are making as a family. (as you know - THANK YOU for the sacrifice you and your husband made for us!)

debzdogz 02-21-2012 10:34 AM

i am hoping to FINALLY join in at some point...the mini might be difficult as i have to get up for work Thursday morning @4am...ugh...but i will try REAL hard to join in the biggie!

princessp1971 02-21-2012 01:51 PM

Can't wait.....!

SuG 02-21-2012 02:27 PM

oh I hope, I hope I can join in the fun :)

Mary_Pat419 02-21-2012 02:40 PM

I know we wish everyone could play 'live' with us at the same time but know that can't be possible. Even if you can't play 'live' you can still leave comments and participate in the challenges on your own. After you upload to your gallery be sure you link your page in the challenge thread so we can see your pages and leave you some luv! Don't forget you have one full week to complete the challenges for recognition. A Master Thread will have all the challenges and links provided so you can check in at one area and play when time allows.

deniserows 02-21-2012 04:30 PM

Reminder please
 
i wanna play but have a heck of a time remembering. *menopausal brain fart* :rolleyes: i know this is a lot to ask but can you send us a reminder in the form of an email :confused:

fmtinsley 02-21-2012 04:49 PM

I can only send PMs from a list I've developed over time. I believe there is an option for you to send e-mails to yourself from this thread to keep up with the news. I use a plain ol' wall calendar and mark it down. :-)

Sorry you can't play 'live' but maybe you can have some scrappy friends gathered and have a scrappy party day :-) Any way you do it, I can't wait to see your lovely pages! :-)

JenAA 02-22-2012 04:18 AM

Good mornin' all,
This sounds very intriguing ... please forgive my ignorance, but I do not know how a VSBN works - does someone have time to explain this to me?

Thank you kindly,
Jen

Hi Jen,

You can find information HERE. In essence, VSBN is a fun get together of the SCS scrapbook community (& guests). It is an on-line crop of scrapbook challenges for a day (the mini event) & weekend (the main event). On the designated date & time, come back to the Virtual Scrapbook Night area and you can 'enter a room' (click on a thread based on time) to see the challenge and chat while you scrap at home. If you are willing, you can post your finished page in the thread (that time or later) for everyone to 'oooohhhh & aaaaahhhh'.

The events are held live at eastern standard time; and, if you can be 'live' participating that's great! Due to all sorts of reasons, not everyone can play 'live' but everyone can still participate in the challenges, show their pages, & leave comments. Each challenge is Hosted by one of our SCS scrapbook community members; they volunteer their time and creativity to develop the challenge, then she/he will be chatting live for fun, to answer questions, and to leave some luv on your pages.

I hope that helps give you an overview of the event. Please click on the above link to help answer any other questions you have; or, post your questions here because someone will know the answer...it's a very friendly, helpful community and we've all been new trying to navigate SCS. :-)

Many of the same ladies that participate in VSBN also 'hang' out in the Scrapbook Goals thread so be sure to stop by there too. :D

Have a great day and hope you can come 'play' with us!

lurasfaith 02-23-2012 02:48 AM

I'm glad to see everyone is so excited! I think we're going to have some good challenges and of course a lot of fun! I'm sorry for those who can't join in live but I hope you can participate as soon as you're able!

sharonpink 02-23-2012 08:01 AM

I'm hoping to get in on this one! I sure wish it was the weekend of St. Patrick's Day! I'm going on a scrapping weekend with my buddies and we could have all participated as part of our weekend away! Maybe I'll come up with a similar idea for our trip.

How FUN!!! You can always look back through the archives and look for a Master Thread of a past VSBNs and use that. If you don't have a laptop, you can copy/paste into a Word doc and print to take with you (I've done that in the past).

Can't wait to see ya at VSBN!

Markey 02-23-2012 02:31 PM

Will everything be posted in this thread during the VS event? I have in on my calendar, hopefully I will be able to have the time available

there will a thread for each challenge where the challenge info is posted and the chatting occurs during the challenge time. It's a good idea to also post a link to your page in that thread also. There will also be a master challenge thread where all the challenges are posted but no chatting on it. hope this answers your questions. Just ask if you have any others.

SOrry to be a bother....Will you post where to find each of those thread in here?

Players will come to 'chatter' in this thread prior to the start and we'll post in here to let you know when the first challenge is posted but not all of them; I usually include the link to the first challenge too. However, all the threads for VSBN are started HERE . If your not sure you could just save this link in your favorites; then check during the designated time. The key is to keep refreshing the page if you don't see it right away; you also want to refresh your page if you're in the thread and want to participate in the 'chatter'. Once you participate in one VSBN, you'll see how easy it really is.

ashjoy 02-26-2012 06:32 AM

I'm excited!

princessp1971 02-26-2012 12:41 PM

eeddmm 02-26-2012 03:29 PM

I'll be able to chat at least..not sure about actually scrapping since it's a school night. Perhaps once I get DGS to bed at 8....Looking forward to seeing what the challenges will be.

ajmac 02-28-2012 09:54 AM

aprildawn 02-28-2012 11:27 AM

Motherload 02-28-2012 05:20 PM

I'll be busy tomorrow night, but since it starts 3:30 my time, maybe I can sneak in one challenge! Gotta get organized tonight, so it may not happen. :shock:

Elizabeth G. 02-28-2012 11:10 PM

I will be playing along tomorrow (thursday) when the DD is at school and the house is quiet. Looking forward to it! :D

Mary_Pat419 02-29-2012 03:37 AM

YEAH! Only about 11 hours until the first challenge!

Enjoy your LEAP DAY everyone!

stampingout 02-29-2012 06:23 AM
