Join me in this thread for another speed scrap at 9pm eastern! I promise I won't be too hard on you!!!

The theme for this speed scrap will be Friendship which goes along with our theme for this month's collab kit! So be ready to pick a/some digiscrapper friend(s) of yours to scrap about....


http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/medium/_collab/gdsjulycollab09_MED.jpg

Of course, anyone who participates will get a coordinating participation bonus and one lucky random participant will win a $5 coupon to my store!

GDS is on eastern time and so you can visit the world clock to figure out what time 9pm eastern is for you! http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/.

I know how us multi-tasking women get going on lots of things so you can request an email reminder here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/calendar.php?do=addreminder&e=702) so you don't miss it!

The BEST (ONLY GOOD) part about hubby being unemployed is that there's no more "date night" conflict for Friday night Speed Scraps!!! We can't afford to go out on a date, LOL. Lookin' forward to it!!

Does the Lo have to be about someone from here? I'd like to try it, but I haven't gotten to know anyone here enough yet to do a LO about them. Can it just be about any of our friends?

Hi everyone! Thank you for hanging out with me tonight! I surely hope you have fun building your layout for this Speed Scrap :)

I'll give you 7 steps over the next hour (every 10 minutes or so) and then you'll have an hour after that to finish your layout and upload to our Speed Scrap gallery.

Remember to post often in this thread to increase your chances of randomly winning a $5 coupon good for anything in my store!

Ok, here we go....

Step 1: 5 different papers (at least one with a pattern which will be your overall background and one solid)

HollyS
07-17-2009, 06:14 PM
Here's another step:

Step 1: 5 different papers (at least one with a pattern which will be your overall background and one solid)
Step 2: Add solid paper on top of background paper resized to allow for background paper to show through with a border on all 4 sides. Solid paper should be perfectly centered on all sides.

Step 3: cut strips out of 3 remaining papers and layer horizontally in middle of page.

Hey Teri, you don't have to post for each set of directions. You post at the very end when your lo is complete. Actually you get another hour to finish once all instructions are given.

Nope but overlapping, not necessarily making stripes with the 3 papers.

Layer your embellishments with your horizontal strips...at least that's what I did. I used long elements like leaves, etc.
