Default September 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 : Eureka!
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 a layout using a kit, bundle or template from our Back To School section!

#3. Featured : Allie & Misty
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 : Smashbooks!
Search “smash book" or “smashbook” on pinterest and create your own digital page inspired by this memory keeping trend.

#5. List : Favorite Life Lessons
Create a list of some of your favorite life lessons and scrap 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 : Go Macro!
Sometimes the best way to learn something, is to get up close and really study it. Use macro photography to get up close in an image and scrap it!

#8. Quote : Use the following quote on your page.
“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.” ― Pablo Picasso

#9. Seasonal : September is National Sewing Month!
To celebrate, create a layout that uses stitching in a big way!

#10. Typography : Use any of these fantastic Back To School fonts.

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

#12. Composition : 2 Focal Points
Create a page featuring both a big photo background coupled with a smaller photo cluster.

#13. Journal : Conversations or Dialogues
You can learn a lot from talking to people. Use this idea to create a page which captures a conversation or uses dialogue rather than narrative in your journaling.

#14. Currently : Wondering...

#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 : Art Journaling
This trend is intimidating for a lot of people, but dig deep, pull out the digital paint and ephemera and learn something new to create your own art journal masterpiece!

#17. Scrap Stash : Celebrate the Primary Colors
Use 3 or more different kits to create a layout celebrating the primary colors, Red, Blue & Yellow. Uses of Black & White are ok too!

#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.
