Default March 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 : Yes!

#2. Product :
Be adventurous and scrap with a designer’s products you wouldn’t normally choose or that doesn’t suit your usual style.

#3. Featured : Meagan, Lorie or Blagovesta
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 Meagan, Lorie or Blagovesta'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 : Rubia Padilha
Ru is an adventurous scrapper if we've ever seen one!
Her layouts are full of motion, expression, play, joy, LIFE... and we invite you to use her breathtaking gallery to inspire you this month!

#5. List : At least 3 things you want to learn how to do.

#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 :
Capture the thrill or joy of doing something for the very first time in a photo and scrap it!

#8. Quote :
Search for the word “adventure” on BrainyQuote, and choose your own quote to scrap this month!

#9. Seasonal : March 26th is Make Your Own Holiday Day!
Think outside the box… what holiday would you invent, and how would you celebrate it? Scrap it!

#10. Typography :
Scrap with the Adventure Dreamer font on one of your layouts this month!

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

#12. Composition : Panorama
Scrap with a photo that takes up the entire height or width of your page.

#13. Journal : Part of pushing yourself to try new things is sometimes failing.
Journal about something you set out to do, but were not able to accomplish.

#14. Currently : Trying to...

#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 : The Ampersand!
Ampersands were everywhere in scrapbook layouts once upon a time. Let’s revisit this trend by including an ampersand on your page. Bigger is better!

#17. Scrap Stash :
Use word art from a kit in your stash that includes the word “adventure”, “experiment” or “new”!

#18. Scraplift :
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.

#15. Color Swatch
I know this question will be asked. I found a few perfect kits to scrap with the color swatch.

For some reason, the colors brought this one to mind for me, but without searching, I wouldn't have thought of the ones you posted.

I got ideas for all of these as soon as I looked at them. This might be the first time I finish all the challenges. I'm excited about that! I found this kit too that should work well for the color challenge.

"experiment" or "new"

I noticed these for the color challenge when looking through my stash: Can you tell who my favorite designer is? LOL

You can also use Journal Cards for this challenge as well - so that really increases the possibilities!

#2. Product :
Be adventurous and scrap with a designer’s products you wouldn’t normally choose or that doesn’t suit your usual style.

I have a question about this prompt. I do feel like I scrap lots of different styles already and I really can't think of anything that doesn't suit my usual style at the moment. Can I just scrap a page of a designer that I do not scrap very often with ???

#8. Quote

Can it be a quote from anywhere, or does it have to be specifically from Brainy Quote? There's some really weird quotes there.

According to the prompt, it has to be from BrainyQuote, don't forget to search the word 'adventure' though.

Hi Kathy!
Those two prompts are referring to two different blog posts.
#3 the featured designer - There are 3 featured designers this month, the one that is currently featured is Meagan's Creations and HERE is the blog post about her feature.

#18 blog scraplift - we have a blog scraplift challenge, which is posted on the first Sunday of the month, and for March, the blog post is HERE.

I just finished the photography challenge - capturing the joy of doing something for the first time. I used photos that capture that joy but that are older photos. Just realized that might not work for the challenge - do I need to take new photos that meet that criteria?

It should be okay, Cindi. It doesn't have to be a new photo.

Are we supposed to put links to our layouts along with our completed passports in the other thread? Sorry, I didn't see where it said to put the links.

Lynn, this is an answer from Robin last month:
[QUOTE=Robin Carlton;1062944438]You do NOT have to post your completed pages anywhere other than the gallery. Your completed passport image is all you need to earn Sweet Rewards and be entered into our drawings for monthly prizes!

Be sure your tracker post has any relevant notations in it along with a list for leaving love, etc. This post from Kiana is the perfect example of what we're looking for each month...

Even though it’s not required I like when people post the links because I can go through and see what people did for a particular prompt so I just do the same for others. I find it easier to look up a particular prompt this way as the inspiration thread is all over the place

I see most girls posting links to all their pages in addition to their completed passport image. Is this a requirement?

You don't have to post links. Some girls like to, and that's fine too.

I'm one of the ones who post links but not because it's a requirement, I do it because i like using everyone else's links when i'm having trouble with a prompt so i figure maybe someone might use one of my links the same way
