Default May 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 : Ingenious
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 : Use an artsy, crafty, hobby kit from the shoppe!
Here are a few ideas…









#3. Featured : Jenn + Crystal
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 Jenn or Crystal'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 : Paper Piecing
We think paper piecing is such a fun addition to any page, and our template designers really know how to rock this layered paper look. Use a template that has a paper pieced look or get creative and create your own!









#5. List : Bucket List
This can include one for reading, traveling, summer plans or something else altogether... get creative and make the ultimate bucket list!

#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 : Creative Framing
Get creative with the way you frame a photo.
Think text, funky frames, elements and other ways to frame an image on your next page to really make it pop in a fun and creative way.





#8. Quote : Use the following quote on your page.
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” - Maya Angelou

#9. Seasonal : Celebrate Mom!
Get out from behind the camera and scrap a photo of you with your kids or with your mom!

#10. Typography : Sugar Creates
Download and use this beautiful font on one of your layouts this month


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

#12. Composition : Tiny Little Photos
Create a dainty page that uses at least two tiny little photos like these:







#13. Journal : "I’m good at ________"
Think about things you’re really good at, and journal about them! Your journaling can be thoughtful and personal or a simple list of what you’re good at! Get creative and have fun celebrating YOU!

#14. Currently : Creating...

#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 : SSD Memory Lane Mondays
Scraplift a layout from one of our Memory Lane Monday posts on the blog! Be sure to share which post and layout inspired your page!

#17. Scrap Stash : Spin a Kit into Spring!
Get creative and use a summer, fall or winter kit you already own to scrap an obviously spring page!

#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.

Can you please post kits that could match the colors?

Nevermind. I found the perfect kit with Lorie's new release for this weekend

Can I use the BIM Collection from Flergs in the challenges? I understand about any Amber's solo collections, but what about kits with other still current designers here? We've always been allowed to use retired kits correct for active designers?

Question about #3. Featured : Jenn + Crystal

Are they both still going to be featured this month? On the blog all I see is Kelly from May 3rd?

Will Crystal's blog interview be done in time for the passport challenges? I was counting the weeks on the blog and it looks like Jenn's first post was due on the 10th but wasn't done til the 17th so her second blog post (which is the interview used for the challenge) will be 24th May and Crystal's first will be 31st leaving it a bit close.

I don't think it will be in time for the passport challenge. So Crystal's feature will probably be eligible for next month's passport challenge instead.

Can we use Kelly's interview instead then since it was in May?
