Default May 2011: Scrapper's Portfolio & Tracker

Hey Sweeties!!

May is here and with La recovering I'm stepping in to bring you the portfolio this month. Hopefully our prompts this month will inspire you to showcase all that May means to you! The staff really outdid themselves gathering creative ideas for you. Hope it gets you feeling all sorts of scrappy!

For ease of reference, we've created a printable checklist of this month's portfolio. Click the link below to download and print!

May 2011: Sweet Shoppe Scrapper's Portfolio

As always, you MUST use primarily Sweet Shoppe products to complete your challenge layouts.

One Point Tasks - 20 Primary Points Possible
1 - Lift a portfolio layout by one of the Sugar Babes! This month the Sugar Babes created pages based on this May Portfolio. These layouts can be found in the gallery or rotating on the site’s home page. Your challenge is to lift one of the Babes' portfolio layouts!

2 - Quote Inspiration! "Came the Spring and all its splendor, All its birds and all its blossoms, All its flowers leaves and grasses." — Longfellow Create a layout inspired by or featuring this quote!

3 - National Scrapbook Day is May 7th. Scrap about your love of scrapbooking!

4 – “Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.” Create a page that highlights one of your friendships. Some topics to include - how you met, where you met, how long you have known each other, what you like about your friend or why you are both pals.

5 - Mother's Day is May 8th. Create a page about what it means to you to be a mother OR create a page about what your mother means to you.

6 - Ad Inspiration - do a page inspired by this House Beautiful ad. Use the colors, the design or even just the font work to inspire you.

7 - Create a page inspired by this fun photo display. Utilize the colors, the words, or even a grid design as inspiration.

8 - Kentucky Derby means Mint Juleps all around...be inspired by this traditional drink by using lots of green leaves on your page.

9 - Fill in the blanks: "If I was a ________, I'd ___________" See this great inspiration piece for one idea.

10 - Recipe challenge: 3 photos, 4 circles, 3 strips of paper, 2 frames, 1 string, 10 flowers or stars, 8 buttons, 3 metal pieces and a one word title. This is the base of the recipe - and you can add more ingredients as you see fit.

11 - Creature of Habit - Answer the question on a page… what is one bad habit that you wish to break? Or what is a habit that your hubby or kids' have that is very annoying?

12 - Spring means bugs! Include butterflies, ladybirds, ants - any creepy crawly creature on your page or in photo(s).

13 - One Little Word Challenge: Feast! Scrap a layout based on that word (use it as your title!)

14 - Create a page inspired by the words on this Nike ad.

15 - Choose one of these beautiful words and use it as a title on your page.

16 - May 7th is National Weather Observer's Day; scrap a page using at least one weather related embellishment on it - clouds, sun, snow, raindrops, etc.

17 - It's time for one of our steady favorites again! Paper 2 Digi! Browse Lisa Truesdell's gallery and lift one of her amazing layouts! Paper 2 Digi is always a blast and a great chance to try out some new techniques!

18 - You make me happy when skies are gray…use gray paired with another color on your page. Some eye candy to inspire and this one too.

19 - May 11th is 'Eat What you Want Day'. If you could have a day where you could eat absolutely anything you wanted and calories didn't matter, what would your menu include? Lots and lots of chocolate? Fried food? Pizza?

20 - Are you keeping up with your recipe book? May is National Egg Month! Create a recipe card featuring the incredible, edible egg! Need some ideas? Check out the American Egg Board's website for loads of yummy recipes!

Two Point Tasks - 20 Primary Points Possible
21 - Technique – have your photo merge into text. Sweet Libby Pritchett, designer extraordinaire, created this tutorial for you. It's worth watching just to see the stunning page she created!

22- Create an ampersand like this one using lots of different patterned paper strips.

23 - In 25 meaningful words tell us who you are - no sentence structure required just throw the words around that say YOU! (e.g. Chocaholic, Dancer, Positive, Energetic, Athlete, Mother, Organizer) Make your page a tribute to you; use a variety of fonts and alphabets and your 25 words on the layout.

24 - Dig out your favorite Sweet Shoppe kit. Select four colors from the kit. Now use papers and elements from other Sweet Shoppe kits that match the color palette you just created. Be sure to tell us what kit you used to generate your color palette.

25 - Use a variety of borders - either pre-made or shape templates to create a page inspired by this piece.

26 - Sinner or Saint? Create a page with two photos; one showing the devilish side of yourself or someone else and one the angelic. Journal about the traits that person has for each of these categories.

27 - Photo editing challenge - change the color of an element in your photograph (someone's shirt, a flower, etc.) and scrap that photo. For a tutorial, go here.

28 - Splatter or scatter at least two different colors of ink or paint on your page. Here's an inspiration piece.

29 - Do you have anything you would like to confess? Here are some prompts to give you some ideas:
* Nobody knows that I . . .
* Dear ____, it weighs on me that I never told you . . .
* The biggest lie I’ve ever told is . . .
* Is there anything you feel guilty about? Is there anything you need to be forgiven for?
* What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done?
* What’s your secret desire?
* What’s the most outrageous thing you’ve ever done?

30 - Are you still sticking to your New Year's Resolutions? What have you done lately to stay on track or meet your goal? Scrap a page about your progress (or lack thereof) or perhaps your plan to get back on track!

Five Point Tasks - 10 Primary Points Possible
31 - The five senses. Pick 3 senses below and scrap 3 layouts to earn 5 points:
31a -SMELL - a layout about a scent.... roses in your garden, freshly baked cookies, dirty diapers.
31b -SIGHT - a layout about something you like to look at... the ocean, the squirrels in your backyard
31c -HEARING - a layout about what you like to listen to... favorite music, your child's laugh
31d -TOUCH - a layout about something you like to touch... fuzzy blanket, pet, bare feet on the carpet
31e -TASTE - a layout about tasting something... your special brownie recipe, your favorite meal or drink

32 - Life Lessons 2011 - this year SSD is encouraging you to create a Life's Little Lessons Album! One of the greatest things we can pass along to our loved ones is the stories of lessons we've learned in our own lives, so this year we're challenging you to do a little soul searching and create an album of these little learning experiences. Pick 3 of the 5 topics below and scrap 3 layouts to earn 5 points:
32a - Happiness is a thing to be practiced, like a violin.
32b - Finding fun in simple ways makes the happiest days
32c - Do one thing everyday that makes you happy.
32d - Dare to be different.
32e - Always laugh when you can. It is cheaper than medicine.

Ten Point Task - 10 Primary Points Possible
33 – Create a homemade dry erase board! Basically you can design anything you'd like and print it out, then slip it into a frame and add a string with a dry erase marker tied to it. This board would make a great Teacher Appreciation or Mother’s Day gift.

Here are some examples from the Babes to inspire you-
Celeste
Sara and she made another one too!
Andrea & a tutorial too!
Tracy

And examples from other places-
Simple Board
Ornate Frame
Menu Board

Flex Tip - Be Creative! If the challenge is asking for a TOP 10 of your favorite TV shows, feel free to scrap your husband's or child's favorite shows instead! If it's asking a question, feel free to ask the question of a loved one and scrap a page for them instead. The only time this wouldn't apply is to your Book of Me album which should be a stunning tribute to YOU!
___________
DON'T FORGET! As you complete layouts for our challenges, you'll be tracking them yourself in one post that you'll update throughout the month. For May, all layouts and points need to be posted by 11:59pm EST at the end of the day on June 1st. If you're joining us for the first time this month, have a look at the amazing portfolio tracker threads from throughout the year to see how it's done!

1) Post to claim your tracker spot for the month.
2) When you finish a layout for a challenge, upload it to the gallery and right click to get the image information for your layout.
3) Return to your tracker spot you claimed in this thread, and click edit to add the image of your layout to your portfolio. You'll want to add your layout in order of the numbered list above and include that number and the points earned above your image.
4) At the very end of your portfolio, please keep a running tally of the total points earned to date.

PLEASE NOTE: Portfolio points may NOT be carried over into the following month as each month begins anew with a fresh set of inspiring challenges! Additionally, you may NOT use the same layout for more than one numbered task - each task requires a new layout.

Please don't post chatter or comments in this thread as we'd like to keep it clean and easy to check at the end of the month. If you want to give praise to your favorite prompts or layouts, feel free to chatter as much as you like in our General Info & Chatter Forum. Thanks!!

Celeste

and here's mine: https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=184983


1 pt. 2 - Quote Inspiration! "Came the Spring and all its splendor, All its birds and all its blossoms, All its flowers leaves and grasses." — Longfellow Create a layout inspired by or featuring this quote!
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=186450


1 pt. 6 - Ad Inspiration - do a page inspired by this House Beautiful ad. Use the colors, the design or even just the font work to inspire you.
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=186895


1 pt. 12 - Spring means bugs! Include butterflies, ladybirds, ants - any creepy crawly creature on your page or in photo(s).
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=183441



1 pt + 1 pt for NR (font from Darcy) 15 - Choose one of these beautiful words and use it as a title on your page.
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=185915



1 pt. 19 - May 11th is 'Eat What you Want Day'. If you could have a day where you could eat absolutely anything you wanted and calories didn't matter, what would your menu include? Lots and lots of chocolate? Fried food? Pizza?
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=183568


1 pt. + 1 pt. for NR (font from Darcy) 20 - Are you keeping up with your recipe book? May is National Egg Month! Create a recipe card featuring the incredible, edible egg! Need some ideas? Check out the American Egg Board's website for loads of yummy recipes!
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=185017


2 pts. 21 - Technique – have your photo merge into text. Sweet Libby Pritchett, designer extraordinaire, created this tutorial for you. It's worth watching just to see the stunning page she created!
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=185444


2 pts. 23 - In 25 meaningful words tell us who you are - no sentence structure required just throw the words around that say YOU! (e.g. Chocaholic, Dancer, Positive, Energetic, Athlete, Mother, Organizer) Make your page a tribute to you; use a variety of fonts and alphabets and your 25 words on the layout.
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=185518


2 pts. + 1 pt NR (kit from Meg) 24 - Dig out your favorite Sweet Shoppe kit. Select four colors from the kit. Now use papers and elements from other Sweet Shoppe kits that match the color palette you just created. Be sure to tell us what kit you used to generate your color palette. (I used Here Comes Trouble from K. Cronin-Barrow - with three boys, I use that one a lot!)
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=185996



2 pts. + 1 pt. for NR (template from Cindy) 28 - Splatter or scatter at least two different colors of ink or paint on your page. Here's an inspiration piece.
https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...p?photo=185121


10 pts. 33 – Create a homemade dry erase board! Basically you can design anything you'd like and print it out, then slip it into a frame and add a string with a dry erase marker tied to it. This board would make a great Teacher Appreciation or Mother’s Day gift.
