Default February 2021: 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 : Jubilant
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 : Birthday Anniversary Freebies
Collect the Birthday Forum Freebies this month and then use your favorites to scrap your page.

#3. Featured : Meagan + Flergs
A brand new series of Featured Designer freebies is here for 2021, and we can’t wait for these fun kits to inspire you! Thanks to a suggestion from community member, Lisa aka Armygrl, our theme this year is focused on all of those special days that make up our sweet memories. From Rainy Days to Ordinary Days, A Day at the Zoo or even a Kinda Nice Day like Erica’s first kit in the series, we can’t wait for you to get your hands on these beauties! Taking inspiration from these fun kits, each month we’ll be asking you to scrap a page focused on the kind of day our designers are celebrating in their featured designer freebies! You’re welcome to use the kit itself, or simply scrap a page inspired by the title, but get creative and let your imagination take the lead.

#4. Inspired By : Fun Frames - Birthday
Be inspired by these wonderfully festive templates from Cindy.

#5. Dealers Choice : Tied Together Storytelling
Use this terrific page from SugarBabe Kim to help inspire you to create a layout where all the elements on the page work together to tell the story. I LOVE how Kim's overall theme is repeated in the text border, titlework, journal card, word strips, larger keywords, & how those small pops of color and expressions of paint beautifully tie together to complete the pouty and disgruntled narrative for her photos. The angst illustrated on the page is such the perfect compliment!

and my spin on it...

#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 : Expressions
Focus on a variety of photographed expressions < joy, fear, laughter, sadness > then showcase them on your page.

#8. So Sketchy : Monthly Inspiration!
Use the following sketch as inspiration for your layout.

#9. Seasonal : Bubble Gum Day
February 5th is Bubble Gum Day! Be it photos of your kids enjoying blowing the perfect bubble with a big wad of gum, or a perfectly bubblegum pink page, have some fun creating a page that celebrates this quirky holiday.

#10. Typography : Unicorn Confetti Font
Download font and use it on your layout.

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

#12. Composition : Let'em Eat Cake!
Let these fun cake layouts inspire your creativity!

#13. Journal : Growing Up / Getting Older
How do you (or your kids) feel about growing up or getting older? Be it an interview or a simple reflection on your feelings, create a journal heavy page that explores this topic

#14. Currently : Grooving to....

#15. List : Checklist
Include a checklist on your next layout. Is it a to-do for a fabulous party? Or a grocery list for next week’s shopping? The sky is the limit, so get creative about what you’re checking off for this challenge!

#16. Pop Culture : Make a Wish
Making a wish & blowing out your birthday candles is a fantastic bit of popular culture that is practiced in nearly every country across the globe!
Create a page that celebrates this festive activity - Blow'em out & make a wish!

#17. Details : Balloons
Have some fun filling your page with balloons!

#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.
