Default July 2019: Passport FAQ


If you have any questions regarding THIS month's Passport challenges, please post them here.

We have a wonderful team and community here at SSD....
so someone is sure to get back to you ASAP with answers to anything and everything related to our Passport Challenge System!

Here is a list of this month's challenge prompts for easy reference:

#1. One Little Word : Getaway
You can use this word as/in your title work, within your journaling, or simply let it inspire the direction of your layout.

#2. Product : Scrap with a product found in our Vacation category!

#3. Featured : Natalie + KCB
Our featured designer articles have been expanded since we started our alphabet inspired series, and are showcased on the blog each time a new designer goes into the spotlight. Your challenge is to use any solo product from one of our featured designers this month PLUS discover something from either Natalie or KCB's interviews this month to use as inspiration for a layout, be sure to tell us what inspired you in your gallery comments!

The following are a few ideas on how you may glean inspiration from a FD interview... Using this interview with Meg [featured in December] ... You might be inspired by the red and white cookie jars in her kitchen to scrap a red & white layout. Maybe you'd like to include the quote she shared “The Best Thing About Memories Is Making Them” on your page, maybe you were inspired by the letter “G” to scrap your own OLW starting with the letter G... or perhaps you might simply want to lift one of the layouts created by the Babes to show off the FD freebie. It’s totally up to YOU to decide how you'd want to be loosely inspired by one of our FD blog posts.

#4. Inspired By : Maps!
Create a layout that includes a map or items and elements created using a map print.









#5. List : Lifelong Travel Log
Scrap a layout featuring a simple list of all of the places you’ve traveled in your life!

#6. Leaving Love :
Leave love on 15 layouts in the gallery and then post the link to each in your tracker thread.
Create your own place marker by using your favorite layout you've left love for during the month to "hold" that spot on your card ♥
Right click on a page in the gallery and save... follow by resizing this saved image to 97 X 97 before adding it to your Passport tracker image.

#7. Photography : Planes, Trains and Automobiles!
Scrap a photo of your view taken from inside a plane, train or automobile.

#8. Quote : Use the following quote on your page.
“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” - Confucious

#9. Seasonal : July 3rd is Compliment Your Mirror Day.
With the spirit of this fun day in mind, scrap a selfie and give yourself some love!

#10. Typography : Traveling Typewriter
Download and use this classic font on one of your layouts this month.

#11. Wild Card : Scrap anything you'd like for this challenge ♥

#12. Composition : Traveling Titlework
We love this layout by SugarBabe Rebecca featuring a title traveling down her page!
Use this idea to create a fun title with shadowed letters that spill out across your layout!



#13. Journal : The Path Not Taken
Scrap a page that tells the story of a trip that’s gone untaken. This can be a trip you’ve been dreaming about that is out of reach or still in the works, or it can be something deeper that tells the story of a path or journey that you may have wanted to take in your life but didn’t for whatever reason.

#14. Currently : Reading...
After all, there’s no easier way to get away or go on a journey than in a book!

#15. Color : Scrap with this month’s color swatch.
It should be obvious that the page you've created was inspired by the colors featured in the swatch image posted below.
** You don’t necessarily have to use all of the colors shown [use 2, or 3, or all 5] **


#16. Rewind / Flashback : Kraft Paper White Space Layouts
This design approach used to be all the rage! Scrap your own version of this gorgeous scrap style.







#17. Scrap Stash : Travel Themes
There have been a lot of travel kits released over the years here at the sweetest spot in town. This month, we're challenging you to dig through your stash to scrap with a travel related kit from any of our designers past or present!

#18. Scraplift : Hosted on the Blog
On the first Sunday of each month, Sugarbabe Kim E. will host an inspiring Scraplift Challenge on the SSD Blog.
You have the entire month to play along and complete your page.

To keep in mind while you're scrapping...
These prompts are written and created with fairly broad themes/concepts in mind and I think that personal interpretation is key. You can certainly approach a prompt literally, or I encourage you to think about it in a different way ... take a creative approach on ways to apply prompts so that they'll work for you and your family.
