Default October 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 : Archive
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 : Fossils, Dinosaurs, Pyramids… Oh My!
Scrap a page using iconic places, creatures or motifs from the past!

#3. Featured : Jennifer Fehr
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 Allie or Misty'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 : Quilts!
Quilting as a craft has been around for centuries and is easy to implement in scrapbooking with the plethora of patterned paper options out there.
Use this amazing artform to create a “quilted" page.





#5. List : This Day in History...
Create a page which features a list of the things that have happened over the years on a date of your choice.

#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 : Black & White or Sepia Tones
Scrap a page using black & white or sepia tone photo(s)

#8. Quote : Use the following quote on your page.
“The best way to predict your future is to create it" - Abraham Lincoln
You can also creatively incorporate quotes into your page using journal cards or including the quote within your journaling.


#9. Seasonal : October 16th is Dictionary Day
Scrap a page that uses a word and its pronunciation, part of speech & definition.

#10. Typography : Retro Inspired Fonts
Use any of the free retro inspired fonts found here.

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

#12. Composition : Then & Now
Divide your page in half, either top/bottom or right/left, with one half representing “then” and the other half representing “now”.

#13. Journal : Let me tell you a story...

#14. Currently : Reminiscing...

#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 : Recreate & Restore
We want you to dive into your digital archives and recreate/restore one of the oldest pages you've ever scrapped.
New topics and photos are a-ok! Be sure to show us your original page in your monthly tracker post!

#17. Scrap Stash: Hard Drive Archeology
Dig through your hard drive and unearth a kit or template you bought ages ago, but haven’t gotten around to using yet.

#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.

For #17 - does it have to currently be in the store or can it be retired but by a current designer or a retired SSD collab?

Sherly will correct me if I'm wrong, but standard policys "As long as one of the designers of that product is still selling at SSD you can use it", even if it's a retired kit.

I'm not Sherly, but you are right about this Jacinda!

Hi, Christina, which challenge prompt are you referring this question to?

For #7 - Photography - do all the photos on the page need to be black and white or sepia? or can it be a mix of b&w and color as long as the majority are multiple B&w??
