This is Barbara, of Precepts and Promises, and I’ve love to have you join us at Faith Sisters this coming Tuesday, March 1st, 2PM PST, for a speed scrap.
What is a speed scrap you say?
You’ve never participated in a speed scrap?
Why would you WANT to???
Like the name implies, a Speed Scrap is a scheduled event for scrapping in a hurry. For mine at Faith Sisters, they are one hour long. I give you a different set of instructions every 10 minutes, beginning and ending on the hour. Each set builds on the previous, so by the end of the hour, your page is complete (or very nearly so).
If you’ve never participated in a speed scrap, and it sounds intimidating, then this is the speed scrap for you! We are a very welcoming group and would love to have you join in. You are always free to ask questions if you are stumped or if my directions are a little fuzzy.
And, why should you?
Because it’s fun; you don’t know what the page is supposed to look like, so it’s a little like opening a present with multiple layers of wrapping paper.
Because you get a page DONE; who among us is all caught up with our photos?
And, because I give out some sort of participation prize for all who join in! In the past, participation prizes have included word art clusters and photo overlays.
Here are a few examples of pages I’ve used as the basis for a speed scrap:
If you are intrigued, go and check out the other layouts in our gallery. It’s always so interesting to see that, with the same instructions, everyone’s pages are so unique.
And, then, please come and join us this coming Tuesday, March 1st, at 2PM PST (5PM EST) in our forum. We’d love to have you join us!
