HI Everyone!

This is so exciting. I just found out I won the June challenge, and that I will be hosting this month's challenge. Needless to say, I don't know the prizes quite yet, I will get that posted by the end of our nice long weekend for sure. In the meantime, let's get scrapping!

Since I am new here, I will share a bit about my scrapping experience. I have been scrapping since 1998. I have several books going, one for each of my daughters, one "family" (for me to keep), a "growing up" album of my husband and I, side by side pages of he and I at each stage in our adolescence (this is not a book I pull out a lot---gosh I was geeky as a kid), and one each for my mom and Mom in Law. I also just went to WDW , so I have just about completed my first WDW album as well. Wheew! That is some work.

I love Me & My Big Ideas, and Jolee's Boutique. I will definitely include something of one or the other in the "prize bag". I am not into the brads, etc yet---it looks so scary but beautiful. I need to take a class!

Okay, so get scrapping--take those scrapbooks to your 4th of July parties, if you have to. July is a busy outdoors month, but like I say, the hours between midnight and 5 am are very good hours that are often overlooked by non scrappers! HE HE HE

Post your progress, I will be watching!
Thanks!

Ok, I know I have a ton of scrapping that has to get done this summer. Even with work being totally weird and spending more hours on campus than I would usually do in the summer it has to get done.

Those midnight to 5 am hours may just get used! I'm picking up 26 rolls of film from the cruise on the way home. And I have plenty with kids books all the time.

So somebody beat me!

Hopefully I get motivated soon though! :)

Okay, it's my first time and I truly am excited, so I squeezed in a visit to the scrapbook store today, and I went through my exhausting mini store in my own house, here is what is up for the taking:

1) Mini "Winter" title die cut (in color)
2) 2 mistletoe die cuts (in color)
3) Frances Myer Christmas & Snowman stickers (2 sheets total)
4) Stickopotomus Easter chocolate eggs foil stickers
5) Pansy border stickers, small for around pictures etc.
6) 4th of July stickers CM
7) Me & My Big Ideas Beach stickers (so cute I picked up a sheet for me too!)
8) Tiny Tales "A Day At The Beach" poem, just cut and paste.
9) Jolee's Boutique Fall Leaves & Birthday set of stickers (2 small sheets)
10) Over Alls Title Border "Whirling" (with leaves, for Fall)
11) Turkey Dinner color Diecut
12) Sandylion Zoo border w/ stickers
13) 2 different WDW paper picture frames, from the scrapbooking packs that WDW sells
14) Happy Birthday 3-D stickers, great for making cards too. These came in a 5 pack, you get one loose sheet
15) 8.5 x 11 self sticking sheets. These have two designs per page, Pink, Yellow, Blue - - great for framing pictures etc
16) Elements..thoughts from the heart. This has the definition of Love and Child printed on Vellum paper, very pretty.

That is it!!! I tried to include a few things for each season and from major celebrations too.

Happy Scrapping!

I haven't been scrapping the last couple of months, but it is time to get back to work!

I just came back from Disney, and have Tons and Tons of pictures looking for a home.

I hope everyone gets lots and lots done!!

What the heck, I'm in again the month. I have so many pictures to scrap it is scary. I have never been this so far behind. Not sure how much I will get done with the kids home for the summer, building a new house, trying to sell the old house, etc...

My goal is to get one page done every day. Guess what? I am already a day behind :) Well, maybe I'll learn to be one of those midnight to fivers.

I'm in!! I'm new to this part of the forum, as I just scrapped my first pages today. I've gotten 6 pages done on our 2002 trip and would like to have this Disney album finished before we go back in August! So far I love scrapping, but I just don't know how I'm going to organize all of this stuff! Ack!

I finished 4 pages last night of our cruise we took in March. I think I had four pages last month so I think I am doing good:) We have no plans for the Fourth so maybe I can set up the card table and get a few more pages done.

Hope everyone has a great holiday.

Okay, I'm new to the challenge thread... what exactly is this month's challenge? TIA!

Alice28
07-05-2003, 06:22 PM
I'm in...going to Costco later to pick up some film. Hopefully I can get some layouts accomplished tonight or tomorrow. I did get a bunch of pages done for my Mom; she had bought an album and all the accessories to scrapbook our March trip to WDW. She hadn't started. So I jump-started her book and got all the MK done and most of Epcot done. She was soooo happy and pleased. I just hope it motivates her to do the rest!

Alice28
07-05-2003, 06:25 PM
ToDisney-

The challenge is to get as many scrapbook pages as you can finished in the month of July. Periodically post on this thread what you have accomplished and we cheer each other on and give support/ideas. The winner of the June challenge will reward the winner of the July challenge with scrapbook goodies (look at the first post or so to see what you will win). Then the winner of the July challenge will host the August challenge, and be responsible for getting a little goodie bag of scrapping stuff for the August winner. It's fun and motivating!

PigletsPal
07-05-2003, 07:23 PM
Ok ladies its day 5 of July and I've done 23 pages so far. My LSS is not charging to scrap this summer so I spent from 10am til 4pm the other day.

Alice28
07-05-2003, 07:34 PM
Woo Hoo Becky! Way to go! That's cool that your scrapbook store is giving scrap time free of charge. I bet you managed to buy a thing or two though! That's what I love about scrapping at a store or at my CM's house...if I need a certain sticker or diecut, it's right there! Same with paper, adhesive, etc. I just love that!

PigletsPal
07-05-2003, 08:25 PM
You got that right. I spent more than what they lost...............LOL

Mom2Princesses
07-05-2003, 10:41 PM
Welcome ToDisney, sorry I didn't explain the procedure in the opening thread! I think Alice28 covered it perfectly for you, by the way, I won last month, so I am hosting this month!

Hope you all had a safe and fun 4th of July!!!!!

So far, PigletsPal is in the lead, with a whopping 23 pages done, WTG PigletsPal!

My LSS has lots of hours/days that they don't charge, but I never can seem to make it to them, your 23 pages is giving me the motivation to really try harder. My husband would love the dining room table to be for eating again LOL, it also means I would cook more---thank God for patio tables and barbeques.

Keep me posted on those numbers!

PigletsPal
07-06-2003, 01:36 AM
:teeth: How funny Nancy since I just cleaned off the Dinning room table to make room for me to scrap some more on Sun. Dh and sons will be watching sports and I don't feel like going to the LSS.

Thanks for the explaination... sounds simple enough. If this challenge is still open, I'd like to join!! I just finished my 7th 2 page layout this morning. :D

The challenge is open to anyone who wants to enter until July 31st, which is when I will be announcing the winner. So, keep scrapping! And have fun, too!

To Becky (PigletsPal)

Do you think we could talk our DH's into giving us a scrapbook room? ;)
I have been seriously thinking about putting my girls together in one room and using the other room for scrapping/computer. I just don't feel like painting/moving furniture etc (and neither does DH!) So, until that time my dining room (and every other room-we have an open floor plan) looks a mess!

Alice28
07-06-2003, 12:25 PM
Mom2Princesses:

I have done exactly what you are wishing for. Our 2 boys share our largest bedroom, we have the medium bedroom and our 3rd bedroom I just converted into a scrapbook room and computer room. I LOVE IT. It was a guest room, but since most of our guests now choose to stay in a hotel (namely our parents), we rarely used the extra bed anymore. So I moved the double bed upstairs to give my 5 year old a nice big bed (and sometimes he and his 2 year old brother like to bunk together), and now my 6 foot scrapping table, our computer, a filing cabinet and a nice book case are in our old guest room. I just love, love, love it. It might be worth it one of these summer weekends to paint a room and make the transformation!

ohMom
07-06-2003, 05:58 PM
you guys got a jump start! no fair!!!

oh, wait, I'm just behind checking this board! oops! none the less count me in. I'm sure the lucky scrapper who has already completed 23 pages has already beat me, but, even if I get 10 pages done this month that will be 10 more than I did last month!

I'm in!!!!

Mom2Princesses
07-06-2003, 06:06 PM
Alice28--

Did you give your boys the master bedroom? We have been considering that too, taking one of the smaller rooms and giving our girls the larger room to function as playroom/bedroom (at least until we get our basement finished). Now, the problem with that is my husband is dragging his feet about giving them our bedroom. That is why we have done NOTHING, because we are not sure how to do it.

My husband is only thinking no becaue he likes having our own bathroom, but the girls also have a bathroom that is off of the main hall. So, it is not like there is no bathroom at all, just not off our bedroom. Our house is not large, by any means, but we bought it new 3 years ago and he feels as though he deserves to enjoy the perks. Our closet is big, and would be so awesome for keeping games, toys etc---it's filled with luggage and boxes right now.

Anyway, your boys are the same ages as my girls, 5 & 2. How do they do sleeping in the same room? My girls fight a lot, which is why we also have not put them together...I am so confused as to what to do. When we finish the basement (again NOT large, as we have a colonial) I have carved out a bit of space for scrapping too. What to do???

Alice28
07-06-2003, 06:14 PM
Mom2-

Well, we don't really have a master bedroom- our house is 105 years old, so it was built pre-master bedrooms. ;) Our current bedroom is actually connected to a bathroom the previous owners must have added on in the 50's or 60's. Our bedroom is just big enough for our bed, two dressers and nightstand, which is fine. Their room is I would guess about 11' x 24'--- it isn't a deep room, but it's width is the width of the house. They do fine with sharing the room- there is TONS of room for each of them, even as they grow older. We have a double bed, the crib, a dresser, an armoire, a bookcase, a toy shelf unit, and lots of toys on the ground and there's still room to stretch out. Plus there is this storage room off their room, which is probably 6'x15'- it's partially finished and someday I envision that being a separate playroom or Nintendo room, etc. We need to tape the walls (it's just sheetrock) and lay carpet down though. I have been very fortunate to have boys who so far seem to adore each other, so hopefully they will stay that way for awhile. I imagine when they are 9 and 12 we will either buy a bigger home or figure something out. For us, giving up the bigger room is fine, because I would much rather have the 3rd bedroom as our office space than have the bigger bedroom, but not have the extra bedroom for us cause the boys each had their own room.

Hi all -

Finished 17 pages over the weekend. Have 3 more that are nearly done - just need to finish them off when I can catch DH for some details on one and finish matting the photos on the other.

I already told my DH that I want WHILE YOU WERE OUT to come in an make the garage into my scraproom. I even told him I could act very surprised;)

Mom2Princesses
07-07-2003, 11:18 AM
WTG Deb, 17 pages done!

Becky- That is an awesome idea! I would act "surprised" too, if I could get a makeover (plus, you could spend the weekend at one of those Scrap and Spas I hear about!)

We could never lose our garage, it is filled with all kinds of stuff, and of course, no car!;)

07-07-2003, 12:21 PM
I finished 2 more pages yesterday and just need to journal one and title another making it four for yesterday if I finish them today. So far, that makes 6 complete and more to go. I feel great knowing I gave myself a goal. It is the 7th today and if I finish the two I need to do that gives me 8. I might even get another page or two done tonight.

AJA55
07-07-2003, 12:29 PM
Well, my count is at 4 so far this month. Better than nothing, but not like last month when I did 40! Here's hoping that everyone have a safe and great 4th.

07-13-2003, 08:03 PM
Just got back from the retreat and did 28 pages. I was upset, because some of the ladies there finished in the 60s, but I just wasn't working fast. I would say it averaged for me about a page per hour of working time. But I putzed around a lot.

ToDisney
07-14-2003, 01:37 AM
I'm up to 15 2-page layouts (30 pages). I have another one ready to put together, but scrapping at 1:30 in the morning has limitations... like I can't put my eyelets in my pocket page... LOL!!

Mom2Princesses
07-14-2003, 02:04 AM

Also, OhMom is in, but I don't see any post about how many pages are done yet.

Pretty close there so far at the end of the list....about 2 more weeks of scrapping in July.

I myself have scrapped ZERO, I am on the warpath getting ready for garage sale, donations etc. There are boxes and bags all over my house. It is so silly too, since maybe 5 more hours and my WDW book will be complete...not enough hours in the day!

Have fun!

Alice28
07-14-2003, 11:07 AM
4 more for me!

AJA55
07-14-2003, 11:51 AM
Well this last week I've been able to finish 10 more pages. So that brings me to a total of 14. I'm getting to the end of this book and slowing down. It has over 50 pages in it. But I like most of what I've done. Hay Mom2Princesses, I got earrings for free this weekend at a garage sale. They are shells and used them in a layout last night. Clipped the backs off and used the foam dots to attach to the page. Sometimes I find myself looking at the strangest things to use for scrapping. OH.... the coolest thing was finding 22 (count them 22) "Color Box" eye ink pads at a garage sale for 0.25 apiece.

nicki dahling
07-14-2003, 05:49 PM
I have done exactly 4 pages this month .:( Can't seem to get those creative juices flowing . Not to mention the fact that this month has gone by way to fast !

Mom2Princesses
07-15-2003, 12:18 AM
AJA55--What a great idea! I never thought about using earrings as embellishments! I have only been to a couple of garage sales this summer--mostly looking for nice kids clothes and the occasional book or two. I will have to keep that in mind, I usually pass right over any jewelry. Getting ready for the garage sale is driving me crazy! My kids keep crying over every toy that I price--all stuff they haven't played with in ages. I cannot wait to get rid of all this stuff that I have accumulated--I am freeing up so much space that I didn't even know I had!

I have three crops scheduled in the next week! Surely....I can get something done! If not...I will do the two daytime ones too!

I really have to get back into cropping!!!

07-18-2003, 08:14 AM
I actually worked onmy pages! And at home!

I got together lots of "kits". I chose my pictures, papers and embelishments and put them in protectors. I am now ready to crop tonight...and the hard parts are done (well some of them).

Better yet...I used what I have! Which is way too much. I won't be as tempted to buy every new thing the store has. I may be able to keep my bill under $100 for once (lol).

I can't wait to tell you all how many pages I actually FINISHED tomorrow.

And....I don't have much happening today, so I may do even more.

Wish me luck!!!

I cropped for 9 hours last night...and managed to finish 30 pages....even the journaling!

It really helped to get everything together ahead of time...like that new Creative Memories kit.

The best part...is I hard spent any money...because I used what I had. I did buy a new package of Bazzill...and paid for two more crops...but only spent $5 above that. OH!! They had the new Disney Princess stickers! I have been looking for a good Belle sticker FOREVER!

I have a Princess class in an hour. Hopefully...we will do something I can use.

My son wants to crop one day this week...so that will be three cropping days.

I have finally broken out of my funk!!!! YEAH!

Everyone left me for a while this afternoon so I took advantage and got my supplies out and scrapped at home. Haven't done that in ages but with the table to myself I was able toget stuff done. I am now up to 24 pages. I am so excited. I do not think I have done 24 pages collectively in the past 5 months. I almost have my cruise pictures complete. I think I have enough pics for 8 more pages. Hopefully I can get them done by the end of this month.

Well...I finally broke out of my slump, and I am making up for lost time.

I have cropped 37 more pages since Friday. I am at 67 for the month!!! YEAH! Sure makes me feel better about all the months where I finished nothing.

I hope to get another 15 done today. Wish me luck!!

Right now I am trying to catch up on assorted Christmas's. If I ever finish, I can start doing all my Disney trips.

Well, this last week I completed 14 more pages. That brings me up to 28 for this month. More importantly Iíve only about 8 to 12 pages to finish the book that Iím working on. Whoo Hoo ! ! Itíll be done before the next set of pictures comes in. Have to go to another book, as this one has more than 100 pages in it. Hey ToDisney (Diane) ÖÖI know what you feel like with your 44 pages. Last month I did more that Iíve ever completed. (also in the 40ís) This board has kept me goingÖÖÖÖÖ

AJA55... I think these challenges totally help keep me going. (I'm join the twopeas challenges.) I know I'll never win that one, but it doesn't matter... it gets me scrapping and I'm happy with that!! I think I'm averaging 1 layout a day... that use to be my goal (one I've never met... LOL!!)

Did four more pages last night so I believe my total is now 28. I need to journal a page in our cruise book then I'll have another page done. I think I have just 4 more pages to go and then I'll be done with the whole thing. I can't believe it has taken me a month to do this.

I finished another 34 pages, and I am now at 101! I am so excited!!! I am cropping tonight and tomorrow night as well...so I should actually get caught up.

I only have a small handful of old pictures to do, then I am up to this year. Oh...and lots of Disney...I have several trips waiting to be done.

I am so glad I have finally broken out of my slump!

WOW! 101 pages done! I wonder if that is an all time record????
WTG Pattievers, I don't think I could ever get that many pages done in 2 months! LOL!

Keep scrapping everyone else, the contest ends July 31st, I will announce the winner that day and she will be the new hostess for the month of August. There is still time to catch up.....

WTG everyone for keeping up this July!

Well as of yesterday I am at 42 pages. Probably could have finished a few more but just wasn't inspired. I think I've been spending too much time inside working so when I get some free time I want to take advantage of the little bit of warm weather we're gettting this summer!

I think that will be it for me this month. Working all day today, Tuesday I have to get ready for a Girl Scout trip which will take the rest of the week...and then it is August.

Good luck everyone!

I'm up to 66 page (33 layouts). Not bad! It feels good to be getting so much done. Don't get me wrong, I'll never in my life get all caught up, but making a dent makes me feel better!! ;)

Well, tomorrow is the last day of the month, so I will post the winner in the afternoon (Patti--I think you are it!) Good job everyone on keeping up the scrapping in such a hot and hectic month. If anyone can beat a whopping 101, please post by tomorrow afternoon!

The winner will be hosting the August thread and will be gathering up the goodies to be won! I hope to be able to join in next month....my dining room table has been too quiet this month, it needs a bunch of scrapbooking stuff all over it like usual!

I'll be scrapping tonight but I doubt I'll get 75 more pages done so I think Patti is it for the month. Way to go Girl!!!

I am just glad to have gotten lots done. I think I am at 28 so far and my goal was 31. Should get 3 more pages done tonight and then I'll think about what I can get done in Aug.

This was definitely a once in a lifetime month for me! I ended up with 141 pages done! I guess that is because of all the pre-planning I did.

Thankfully...I am nearly caught up now. I will have time to spend hours on each page if I want.

I will get all the goodies together for the August Challenge today!

Good luck everyone!
