Scrapbooking 101 – Back To Basics

It’s time to kick off the new year by going back to the basics of scrapbooking! Join us on Scrap Girls Forum for “Scrapbooking 101”. This challenge focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly. When the month is over you’ll have completed four layouts and hopefully had some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from January 1-30. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require message board participation or gallery posting. You will also be given some “homework” to complete!

Those who complete and upload all four layouts by 11:59 pm (ET) January 31st will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page – into a drawing for one of three $3 gift certificates.


Here are a couple of tutorials to help you post links and images in this thread.

How To Post Links In The Forum


Some days we will ask you to post an image of your layout in this thread. Here is how;

  1. Make sure you save your layout as a PSD/layered file first.
  2. Save your layout as a .JPEG at 72ppi with a size of 4 x 4 inches (288 x 288 pixels) this is smaller than you would normally save for the web.
  3. Follow the first part of this tutorial by Carla How To Post Images In The Forum to post your “progress” in the game thread.
