Welcome to the Young Scrappers thread for September 2012!


Who are the Young Scrappers? We are a group of "young" 20-something to 30-something year old girls who created a group to share our interest in scrapbooking! We take the "young" part lightly - it's all about how young you feel. Feel free to join in the chat! Just post an intro so we know who you are. And post links to your layouts here - we love to share our work & leave some praise!


We have something new going on this month - a special challenge!




The goal is to complete 29 layouts before the end of the year. The challenges are a way to give you a kick start on those layouts!

A link to the complete challenge list can be found here:
Fancy version

plain b&w version

Here are the guidelines:
1. Complete as many of the 29 challenges as you can before the end of the year - December 31, 2012.

2. You can complete them in any order but no combining challenges.

3. Upload each layout to the gallery and make sure to check the challenge checkbox on the 4th step of the upload process.

Each month, one person will be the hostess to guide us along on the journey! This month it is Rachel Here is what she has to say:
Good morning ladies!!! I will be hosting weekly focus challenges this month. Keep an eye out for fun and games throughout the month as well as a possible *BONUS* challenge or two. I have created a challenge check box that will go through the end date of the 29 Page Challenge. Be sure to check the challenge box when uploading your beautiful creations in the gallery!!

Weekly Focus Challenge (1 September- 8 September):
The focus challenge for this week comes from the list, Scraplift a layout from another Young Scrappers bookmarks. When you link up your project, be sure to give the original artist credit and provide a link to your inspiration piece!

Hey ladies,
So excited so many of us are doing 30 days of lists. Will have a lot of spare time at work today as it's so quiet at the moment so should get a good headstart. And it means we'll all get no 25 on the challenge list completed pretty quickly

Happy Sept everyone!!!! Yay!!!
Hopefully the humidity will go away and it will stay in the 80's until Thanksgiving. HHAHAHAHAA yea right! It's the swamps of Houston!
Anyway... I love this! I have so many things I need to start scrapping again. I've been focusing more on cards the past few years so I have ALOT to catch up on!!!
I don't think I can get any scrapping in today, but maybe I can go over to my buddies house tomorrow and do a little something in her awesome art room!!!

Monica, i forgot to comment about your comment about canning. (hehe, did that makes sense?) It's not as hard as you think, and yes you need equipment but it's not hard and the expense is worth it! (though, I just work with my mom on it every year) I'll take some pics today. Stay tuned on instagram.

P.S. Made my first list!

Okay, I am finally done with the photo prep stage. I'm ordering 99 4x6 prints from snapfish. They are having a deal and just in time for me. But I won't have to wait for that order I've got 3 or 4 sets of pictures to scrap in the meantime. I'm done for today though, so maybe I'll join more of you Monday? Or should I stay up late tonight?

So, Rachel, did you hear that the Scrapbook Nook is closing shop?

argh, my day just has not gone as planned. I was hoping for a quick run to the hospital and then home to scrap the day away, but everything took longer than I thought. Blah. And Miss Sophia is so precious that I just couldn't let her go!! I got to feed her and hold her a lot today

Sooo I vote for a late night scrap party!!

Is anyone around? I am working on a layout. Just gotta finish making dinner (I'm making eggplant parmesan for the first time) and then I'm free the rest of the night! And all day tomorrow, too.

Hi ladies I have never done a challenge or anything like this, but have always wanted to so here I am. I hope I can keep up and do the challenges right. I will get on tomorrow and read the rules again and hopefully get started. I look forward to meeting everyone and having a good time and oh not to mention getting some layouts done. Thanks

Yay Steph! How was dinner? Where did you guys go?

Elizabeth- welcome! I think the challenge will be pretty open-ended, so no worries about getting it right. Mostly it's a list of challenges to inspire us all! I'm Monica, by the way, 26y/o, from Kansas City. No kids or husband or boyfriend, just a doggie

Sounds good!

Just putting the finishing touches on my layout, and then I think I'm going to put together my Lists book. I haven't read anything yet, so I'm already behind on the first day's challenge/prompt. ugh!

I finished the layout that's been on my desk for a week. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out....

My new niece should be here by Monday. My sis-in-law is being induced tonight.

I hope to get some scrapping/card making done this weekend.

Thanks Monica for the welcome.

I live in Norman, OK with two little girls 4 and 2 and my hubby. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to jump right in and get a page done.

For the challenge do we wait for someone to post the challenge or do as many on the list whenever and upload?

Elizabeth: Welcome!! I am Rachel, 27, live in North Carolina. Married with a cat, Eureka. Due to have our first baby Sept 8!!

With the challenges, you do not have to wait for them to be posted weekly. The weekly focus is just to encourage those of us who might have limited time to scrap to complete at least one a week!

We are staying in the new house tonight for the first time. It is so strange and exciting!!

I'm sure slacking tonight... guess I just can't focus on scrapping!

Jen- Are you going to upload your layout for us to see?!

Elizabeth- Isn't Norman close to the Kansas border? For the challenges, you can do them in whatever order you want and however many you want! The monthly "focus" ones are just for added inspiration.

Rachel- Holy cow, you're due in a week?! Time flies. How exciting about staying in the new house tonight! I bet it is a strange feeling!

Thanks Rachel!

My husband's birthday is the 8th. Congratulations on your first. What are you having? Get all your crafting in now because when the doctor places that baby in your arms your heart is going to melt. I would be too busy stealing kisses all day instead of scrap booking even though my youngest is 2 and oldest turns 5 on the 18th I still load up on all my kisses when I can.

No Norman not close. It's about 3 hours from Dallas. I am originally from Long Island New York. If anyone on here is from NY eat a slice of pizza for me. I haven't had good pizza or Italian in 6 years. I am home sick for sure.

Welcome Elizabeth!

I'm Stephanie, 26 and I live in Fort Worth with my husband.

Rachel: I can't believe you are so close to your due date already! It is such an exciting time for you and Ryan!

So I am verrrry slowly scrapping tonight, lol. I keep getting distracted/sidetracked!

Btw I am 27 forgot to throw that out. Turn 28 in January and it's sad bc I remember being 22 with a little baby. Now I'm 27 with two bundles and 6 years under my belt. Time flies when your making memories. Thanks everyone for the intro and I hope to get to know you all. Hope everyone stays motivated tonight if you're up crafting. As for me it's been a crazy long day and I am going to journal my thoughts.

I finished my layout, finally. It must be slow scrapping night or something!

Elizabeth- That is exactly how I felt with my cousin's newborn today! She's not even my baby, but I am so in love I didn't want to quit holding her! I must be getting my Oklahoma cities mixed up. I can't imagine moving from New York to Oklahoma... poor you! LOL. I'm so ready to get out of the midwest... a lot of my family is on the west coast, so that is where I am hoping to end up within the next few years.

oh, and I'm feeling old this year, too. I turn 27 in 2 months... ahhh! Seems like just yesterday I was so excited about being 21 finally.

wow really chatty yesterday girls !!!
September is here, fall is going to start so soon, and I have the feeling we don't really had a summer in London.... (this country has a serious depressing weather...)

@Loni : Unfortunatelly I don't have the money to follow the class (I am still waiting for the bank to transfer my parents money for july and august....) and uni starts really soon and it is SO expensive...
Anyway, I wish I could have taken the class, but I might cheat a bit, if you girls don't mind, and will follow your instagram lists !

@Lizzie : lucky you to have a friend with an amazing craftroom. I should try to be closer to Shimelle !! She might let me craft with her !! (ha ha I am still dreaming...)

@Rachel : I am so excited for the 2 of you ! Baby is on its way fairly soon, and moving into the new house !!! I can't wait to have my own life : married, my house, children !!!

@Steph : don't forget to show us the results of the mini !!

@Elizabeth : Welcome among us, my name is Caro, I am french but live in the UK, in London, waiting for uni to start and I am really anxious about it... (it is going to be for a hear, but a hell of a year...) I am going to become a french and a spanish teacher. I scrapbook since 2008. I have a bf, no children but live with 5 housemates (4 at the moment because one left) and 2 of them (use to be 3) are PIGS !!!

@Jen : Nice LO, I left you a comment

@Monica : can we see your LO ???

no scrapping for me, I am desperately waiting for my PL pockets (that I am not going to use for PL, but for my Mexican Album) I don't know if I told you but I took design G because it is smaller than 12*12, like that I can put them in the middle of a double LO, to keep a certain unity !

need to rewrite my essay for uni, because what I wrote is not what was asked...
have a good sunday

Nice to chat amongst you Caro and Jen.

@rachel: whatever you have you'll love to pieces and I warned you about all the suga that baby will get. Keep us posted. I love love love babies and can't wait for my third.
@Caro: my hubby goes to London in Oct for business. So jealous bc I want to go, but have no one to watch my girls oh well one day. And my daughter love the Eiffel tower. One day I'll take her to see it.

Okay so on to scrapping I am just getting up and hope to at least get my area cleaned and figure out what layout I want to complete. I might do a scrap lift since I am loving all my bookmarks. Happy scrapping today ladies and if I don't chat much today it's because my girls are moody this weekend. Lol drama between sisters. Wish me luck.

Morning girls!
I'm just now getting up and at 'em... it felt so good to sleep in after a busy few days! I made my health smoothie and some blueberry waffles from Trader Joes, caught up on email & message boards, now I'm ready to get my scrap on!

I'll be scrapping the ENTIRE day away. Anyone going to be around?

Rachel- Funny, I was thinking you guys already knew you were having a boy. What was I thinking??

Caro- I'll take pics of my 2 layouts in a bit! That really sucks about having to rewrite your essay Makes me glad I don't have to deal with school stuff like that for the time being!

Elizabeth- Have fun scrapping! And good luck with the sister rivalry. I never had a sister, so I don't know what that's like!

Christina- HI! I recognize you from SC Definitely pop in when you can. I know how crazy it can be with school starting, though...

Rachel- Yum, I wanna come to your bbq

Hi ladies, having the perfect Sunday in Galway. Came here with my mum on a one night mini break. Checked out the city and had some brunch earlier. Came back to the hotel to use leisure facilities and just woke from an impromptu nap. Total bliss
Rach, your cookout looks like fun.
Monica, caro, enjoy your scrappy Sunday!
Hello to our new girls - I'm Caroline, 30, Irish, a smash addict. Looking forward to getting to know you

I think I'll scrap a bit today too. I already have 1 LO done (the scraplift one), one is more than half completed, i just have to punch out a ridiculous number of small hearts and then adhere them to the page. I'm trying to get as much as I can done now, so when school starts up on Wednesday I don't have to freak out about how many LOs I still have to do.

Welcome to the new ladies! My name is Christina, I live in Canada, go to university (it's my second year), no pets unfortunately, 1 little brother, a long distance boyfriend and I play volleyball! And I also work at a restaurant and at summer dance camps Hopefully you can join us for our challenge list! I would love to see all the new layouts we'll start churning out!

Caroline, sounds like you're having a good time with your mum!

Monica, I LOVE smoothies. any good recipes you have laying around, send them my way?

Caro, I have two desks. It starts out really good and then your scrap stuff slowly starts to overtake the other one until you just have two scrap desks. I think I need to reorganize.

Jen, I love that skyline you have on your LO, is it a patterned paper?

Busy planning my birthday party. I think I'll do a restaurant/art gallery night with my besties. I don't want to go out to the bar really so we'll keep it classy

Rachel I am in love with Thomas for a boy name. It's perfect bc it's been in my DH's family a long while. My daughters name is Lailani Loke and oldest is Glorianna Naomi- Marie. Hope you have fun picking a name and working on the nursery. Let me know if you are looking to buy any clothes once you find out what ur having. I have a ton for sale Gymboree, Janie and jack and gap among non name brand. Boys and girls. Pm me if interested.
I cleaned my area which there is no table. I use the dinner table and it's getting old for sure. Hoping to get started crafting now since kids are having popcorn and a movie.

Rachel- aww, that's awesome that you have your grandma's bassinet! I'm sure that will be fine for now.

Caroline- wow, that does sound like total bliss. Lucky! Enjoy the rest of your day.

Christina- yay for scrapping! An art gallery/dinner night sounds like fun for your birthday. We have a thing here call First Fridays that is an art walk type of thing. I love it. Smoothies - I'm still experimenting with it! The one I've been making lately has Bolthouse "Green Goodness" juice, coconut milk, yogurt, blueberries, peaches, and a bit of ice.

okay, lunch & then back to scrapping!

Hello again!! I am not scrapping yet, but I am organizing my new craft room. It became the catchall spot yesterday for things whose homes had yet to be determined. So now I am working on that area of the house while Ryan puts on new shower heads and toilet seats.

I think I had a real contraction earlier, but since this is my first time...I dunno!


*Rachel* Simple Love
