Scrapbook MAX! Breast Cancer Challenge

Scrapbooking is all about sharing with friends, being supportive, and celebrating life – the same building blocks in the movement searching for a cure for breast cancer. That’s why we wanted to try something really special to help raise funds for breast cancer research…

THANK YOU! TOGETHER WE RAISED ALMOST $1,600!!! THE DONATION PAGE WILL CONTINUE TO BE ACTIVE FOR THOSE WHO WOULD STILL LIKE TO DONATE, BUT WE CAN NO LONGER GIVE OUT THE SCRAPBOOK MAX $5 COUPON AFTER OCTOBER 31, 2010.

From October 22 through October 31, 2010, if you make a donation in support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, we’ll give you a copy of Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 digital scrapbooking software for only $5! (The $5 helps defray our order processing and web fees) Plus, we’ll throw in our ‘Life is Beautiful’ mega expansion pack for no extra charge. That’s a total value of almost $80! Already own Scrapbook MAX! 2.0? Get it for a friend or family member!

Join us in the fight against breast cancer!

The best part is that your donation goes right to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They have a track record of putting the funds to work, being the only cancer organization to currently hold an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy.

You can donate any amount you wish in order to get the software coupon, but please give as much as you can. You can even donate multiple times and get multiple coupons.

The best part is that your donation goes directly towards breast cancer research.

We’re confident that our event will receive lots of support from scrapbookers, who are known for being a generous and caring community.

Weekly Challenge 33

 

From designer Michelle McCoy:

 ”So here are the rules (for this week’s challenge)…Download the shape kit (attached to challenge thread and pictured above)…there are two different download choices for you….One will put the shapes right into your SBM shapes folder, and the other download (.zip file) in case you want them as a .png file instead….

Your layout MUST ONLY consist of things made with these shapes….Nothing else from the outside except for the backgrounds you use with the shapes….(read the challenge thread for the full challenge)

I will have a surprise for everyone who participates and of course, a new flair button.”

Weekly Challenge – October 11

Weekly Challenge – October 3, 2010 – by Michelle McCoy

“I want to take you out of your comfort zone and dare you to do some thing a little different this week. This week’s challenge is about papers.

You can create your own backgrounds by using different papers (eg as stripes, curves etc), cut out shapes to use as embellishments or mats. Layer them on top of each other and play with the blending modes, change the hue or recolor them completely.

Your challenge this week is to create a layout usingc(at least) 10 different papers. You may use a paper more than once but there must be 10 different ones used (if you recolor a paper it counts as a new one). You must also use at least 3 items from this mini kit….

Post your layout in the designer challenges in the gallery and then copy and paste the second link under your layout and paste it here for all to see…

At the end of the week, I will pick two winers to receive a prize from me…BUT everyone will receive a new Flair Button….Let’s see what you come up with…:p”
