Progressive Scrap?

Has anyone ever participated in one of these? I thought it might be fun to do on the board. I'd be willing to host if people are interested. It's kind of like a speed scrap only slower. Lol I'm participating in one on gingerscraps right now and if you'd like to see specifics, here's a link to the instructions

and here's the november challenge - you have one day left if you want to participate!

Of course, we may not be able to offer an actual prize and since we have paper scrappers and digi ones, there wouldn't be a set kit to use...

So, anybody up for one?

Neat idea, I've never done one but I'd be game!

I'm not sure how that would work for us paper scrappers. You have to explain more to us how it would look for us in order for me to make a decision, but it does sound interesting. Sounds similar to our phone tag game.

Is this only for the digi scrappers? because the directions you posted said stuff about downloading a kit.

It could be for anyone. I'll try to make the directions very general. For example:

Use a solid paper as your background. Arrange a patterned paper on top of it. (you can crop/ tear/ cut any way you like) Arrange 2 pictures side by side. (you can crop/ tear/ cut any way you like)

Then I would give 4 - 5 days to do it and ask you to post a picture of what you have so far so we know you aren't "cheating" Wink

Is that something that paper and digi scrappers could do?

I think it sounds doable for paper scrappers! Although it terrifies me a little! LOL. I am such a freak about rearranging things a million times until I like it. I'm not sure I could handle it! If you do it I will try to be brave and give it a try. Smile

Okay now i see. I think it would poss a good challenge to paper scrappers and digi scrappers alike and think i would be interested in giving it a try.

Okay, so after the four or five days, then what, you give more instructions for completing it? So we follow instructions for however many days until LO are completed and then see how each looks??? That sounds cool!!

Sounds interesting! I'm not sure how I'll handle not being able to rearrange though:)

Yes, that's exactly it. We could arrange for it to take a set amount of time (say, 3 weeks?).

I know holidays are coming up soon, so what do we think of this schedule:

First instructions on Thursday, Nov 12
Second instructions on Monday, Nov 16
Third instructions on Friday, Nov 20
Fourth (final) instructions on Tuesday, Nov 24
***giving over a week here for us Americans who have Thanksgiving***
Whole page "due" on Wednesday, Dec 2

Of course, you can post what you have whenever you get it done, so if you're really fast, get it done quick! If not, squeek it in at the end. Lol And if you miss the "deadlines" you can still (obviously) create a LO and post it when you get it done. I think it could be fun to see all of the different LOs created from the same instructions!

Hmmm... was just thinking... with digi scrappers, we can layer our stuff in any order we want because it's not "stuck"

So paper scrappers, if you don't want to permanently stick your stuff to the paper until the end, you can lay your papers/elements/ papers out, take a picture and then refer to the picture to remember where things should go... That way if the instructions talk about a mat or frame, you can decide to put it behind a picture you've already decided to use. KWIM?

Oh no, not sure I can do this Smile I love following directions but I like the speed scraps; having an ongoing project would make me nuts I think. I would try though.
