Hello fellow scrappers! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend and maybe fit in some scrappy time! We're here to begin the September challenge! Ready??

Don’t know what a Progressive Challenge is? Go here to learn.

PLEASE NOTE! Although this is in the digiscrap threads, anyone is welcome to play--whether they're a digi, paper or hybrid scrapper. Just as the digiscrappers sometimes have to change up the instructions a little to fit their digi needs when doing a traditional challenge, the "traditional" scrappers might have to improvise on some of the digi techniques. It should make things interesting!


We’ll be using 1 or 2 photos for this challenge and we’re adding them in this task!

-You might want to start off by selecting a kit that has several coordinating papers you like that will complement your photo(s).

-Open a new document and add a background paper, solid or patterned—only a little will show.

-Add one or two more layers on top, each one slightly smaller than the last, finishing with a lighter, neutral color. It is IMPORTANT that you only have a small border of each paper showing (each approx. ¼” or less), since we’ll need the open space of the top layer for Task 2.

-If desired, lightly “ink” the edges or add an overlay or grungy edge. Reduce the opacity so the effect is muted and just adds a little interest to the neutral paper.

-Add your one or two photos. Frame one or both, if desired. Keep them slightly towards the left side of the page but not too high or low.

-Place a rectangle of solid or patterned paper as a sort of mat behind the larger photo. Make it so the mat is under the left side of the photo and only extends about halfway behind the photo.

This completes your mission for this week!


Remember to first save your page in its original version to maintain your layers, so you'll be able to make changes/additions in Task 2.

- Save your page for the web as a .jpg (600x600 or less) & upload to the Challenge 4-Task 1 Gallery by adding the keyword DGSCPR004Task1 when you upload. Please also post this week’s work in this thread.

Reminder: When uploading your page to your gallery, on the Gallery Image Upload Page, choose the category “Scrapbooking/ Digital Scrapping” rather than “Scrapbooking/Progressive Pages,” since that “Progressive Pages” refers to a method of scrapping different from our progressive challenge.



Have fun, and don’t forget to leave some praise for your fellow challenge takers!
