Default November 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 : Bliss
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 : Happy!
There are more than 100 products in the shoppe that include the word “happy” in their name. Use one of them for your next layout!

#3. Featured : Melissa Bennett & Erica Zane
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 : Emojis
These sometimes “happy” little icons are used to quickly express an idea or emotion, and this month, we’re asking you to use them on your next page.

#5. List : Things that make me happy....
Create a page which features a list of the things that bring you joy and happiness.

#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 : Say Cheese!
Nothing says happiness in a photo like a smile! Get close to your subject and show off those pearly whites & cheesy grins!

#8. Quote : Use the following quote on your page.
“Happiness is not a goal... it's the by-product of a life well lived." - Eleanor Roosevelt
You can also creatively incorporate quotes into your page using journal cards or including the quote within your journaling.

#9. Seasonal : Book Lovers Day
In honor of Book Lovers Day on November 2nd, use the title of a book as the title on your next page!

#10. Typography : Happy / Fun Fonts
Search for “happy” or “fun” at DaFont.com and use one of the results on your next page. Be sure to share the name of the font you chose for this challenge in your tracker post!

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

#12. Composition : Paper strips!
Seeing our patterned papers in action makes us happy! Create a page showcasing lots of prints using strips of patterned paper.





#13. Journal : Scrap the story of one of your happiest memories...

#14. Currently : Thankful for...

#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 : Scalloped Edges
Once upon a time, digi mimicked decorative edge shears with all sorts of decorative edges including scallops and zigzagged edges. Recreate this past-trend by including decorative edging on your page.

#17. Scrap Stash: Sparked Joy
Use a product from your stash that “sparked joy” for you when you purchased it!

#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 #2 - does it have to be a current product? Or is a retired product from a current designer with “happy” in the name okay?

Since the prompt says
Quote:
#2. Product : Happy!
There are more than 100 products in the shoppe that include the word “happy” in their name. Use one of them for your next layout!
then please use a current product that's available in the shoppe.

Got it - thank you! I picked up Kristin's beautiful kit, "All The Happy Things," not too long ago, so that's what I'll use. I appreciate your reply.

Silly question... bear with me because it's been around 9 years since I was last active here. I'm trying to edit my post in the main thread so I can add in the link to the challenge I completed/uploaded to the gallery, but I can't find the option to edit it? Is there a specific way I can go in and add my links to it since I can't edit? Thanks!

Looks like you would need to have 5 posts total in the forum to be able to have full access. Try that and see if that works. You should just have to reply one more time here.
