Hi girls
how was your WE??
I recovered from my food poisening, not in time for the barbecue on Saturday but in time for the one on Sunday !! Weather is still lovely in London, we can't believe it! But storm are coming our way today and tomorrow Hopefully back to sunny London on Wednesday for my graduation!

@Loni: I like the name!! Should we mention CHA YS MEGA CROP or without the CHA?
Thanks for putting me done for the card swap (excited!!)
What a good goal you wanna achieve!! GO girl!!!

@Melissa: how was your we at the farm? do you get along well with his mum?
I did not thought of trying to order it online (just scared of the shipping price...)
Yes! can't wait to see more travel LOs !!!!

@Stacy: Looking forward to see your vacacion albums !

@Monica: I am so sorry to hear that. Is it easy to find a new job in your field in the US? Thinking of you
beautiful album

@Steph: good goal!


SATURDAY 20/7 - Discussion Question: What do you want to get accomplished during the YS Mega Crop?
As much as I can, LOs, cards, just scrapbooking most of my day!!

SUNDAY 21/7 - Discussion Question: From what you have seen of the CHA sneaks so far, what products/collections are on your wishlist?
Like some of you I don't particularly look at the sneak peaks unless they are on instagram from people I follow this is how I discovered the Vintage travel edition I mentionned in my previous post. I checked the one you gave Loni, really nice!!

Today I am your host (ps: how do I access the chat????) I am starting with a question:
MONDAY 22/7 - how do you scrap?
- Photos first and then papers and embellishments
- Papers first and then photos
- Embellishments first
- Always need a Challenge
- Always need a need a sketch
(PS: if you do papers first, can you give me advice, because I find it super hard to do an entire mini album without the pictures for example)

and to answer my question: I scrap picture first ALWAYS!! and having a challenge often boost my creativity and make me go outside of my confort zone (and maybe it also make me scrapbook quicker)

Need to go for an errand (I need yellow embroidery thread), and then I will be back for the whole day!!

PLEASE HELP ME FOR THE CHAT THING

Wed 24 - Melissa
Thurs 25 - Melissa
Fri 26 - Caro/Stacy
Sat 27 - Rachel

Wed 31

**CARD SWAP**

Create 2 designs of cards. The amount will depend on how many sign up, so I will update that on Tuesday morning. You have until Monday, July 22 to sign up. If you are a new YSer as of this month, we suggest that you sit this swap out and see how it works. Not that we don't like you, we've just had flakers in the past!

Cards must be standard in size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) and please include envelopes if you have them. You have freedom in the design, just be sure that the quality is something you would like to receive.

Deadline for international participants is August 1st and for US participants Aug 5. I have changed my address in the last couple of weeks so I will pmail you the new address when the participant list is established.

So, if we have 6 paricipants you will be making 12 cards, 6 of each design and mail them to me. You will end up with 12 different cards, 2 of your own and 10 from the other participants.

This will be fun! The idea was to do a little stash busting to make room for some new CHA product! So, let's do that.

**Swap Participants**

2. Caro
3. Steph
4. Monica
5. Rachel

I'm feeling really, really down again this morning. But I'm hoping I will get the mojo to channel that energy into scrapping.

Caro, I'll join you after a bit! Still in my pjs...

WOW, I've missed too much this month, wayyyyyyy to much. Two of my cousins are staying at my house, in my scraproom, so I don't have the space to craft right now. Three weeks ago was the last time I scrapped, and it was a layout using the Bingo challenge. Super fun layout to make, thanks Monica.

BTW, I'm so sorry about your job. You can always vent with us. We are here to help on the down days.

Also, I'm hoping to participate in the MEGA CROP. Just have to find where to craft at in the house. Or at least chat.

SATURDAY 20/7 - Discussion Question: What do you want to get accomplished during the YS Mega Crop?
Anything at this point. I have so many ideas in my head, scribbles, and doodles of things I want to make, I just have to get to it.

SUNDAY 21/7 - Discussion Question: From what you have seen of the CHA sneaks so far, what products/collections are on your wishlist?
There are things here and there that I like. Some of my favs are Lawn Fawn stamps, Webster's Pages collections (their paperclips, charms and lace!!!), Crate Paper-Flee Market, Graphic 45-Mother Goose, but I really want SC-Storytime wood veneers, way too cute

MONDAY 22/7 - how do you scrap?
I like to scrap using pictures first. I usually use more than one picture per LO, except when it's enlarged, and go from there. Or sometimes when I really like the paper I use that than try to find pictures that go well with them. But that's not very often.

@Caro I scrap both ways pictures first and paper first. The one trick I find when starting to scrap paper first is to create a mat for the size of photo(s) you want. It can be exactly the size of your photos or a bit bigger if you want a border and then just build your page around it. I have an easier time creating a "no photo" page if I know what pic I'll eventually be using on the page. If I build one without a photo at least on mind I find I tend to not end up using the page that I made so it's just a waste.

I'll come hang out with you ladies after work today!

@Monica I know it's a tough time for you right now. Hang in there! I can't wait to scrap with you tonight! Hope you'll be around!

Love those embroidery threads, Caro! Glad you were able to find them!!

I almost always scrap pictures/story first. Then I find papers and embellishments that would work together - I don't do embellishments last because my stash is relatively small so I always want to make sure ill have stuff to match the papers I've chosen!

Don't think I will be able to get on chat tonight- going to clean the apartment a bit I think and then work on a big order or cards from my etsy. Hope you girls have fun!

Discussion : My process changes but I probably go half and half with choosing product and pictures first. Sometimes it's the paper then photos and the other half if the time the other way around. Whwn I haven't scrapped in a while I do a little scraplifting to get me going again. So, yes that's at the beginning of the process too, choosing a sketch or LO to scraplift.

Good morning! I am your hostess again this today. Since the twopeas social starts today I have these two discussion questions:

What challenge will you do first?
Will you be chatting with the GGs?

Good morning Caro. It's 2am and I am up with the baby. I'll chat with you in my daylight hours.

Hi loni!
I hope you went back to bed!!

So I just watched all the CHA release videos, here is what I felt:
- "chalk board" is trendy, along with cameras!
- "family" is the new term for fall! (why does fall feel like the season for family time???)
- lods of flowers for falls which is kind of strange
- a good mix of traditional and non traditional Xmas collections
- mainly flat embellishments (PL is invading our normal scrapbooking??)
- a lot of lines includes now at least one or 2 sheets for PL (it is an invasion I said!!)


What challenge will you do first?
dunno yet, but I might tackle challenge 10, love having LODS of pics on my LOs

Will you be chatting with the GGs?
only for the 1st one unfortunately (time problem), but not sure...

Discussion: I will chat with the GGs when I can. It's a little awkward doing it when B's home. I don't want to be neglective.

I think I will do the 2 person challenge first. I have lots of big bro and big sis pics to do.

WEDNESDAY 24/7
Discussion Question: If you could meet ONE and ONLY one famous scrapper, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Amy Tan. I think shes a great scrapper, but also very business oriented and successful. I know her and I could talk about travel as well!

Challenge: Since there was so much discussion about my video, showing my LOs on page double sided... I challenge you to make 3, 2 page LO's by Thursday evening!

Hope to see you all on chat tomorrow! I'll be around 10am (pst) hopefull

Discussion - IDK, there isn't one scrapper I'm obsessed with right now, haha. I want to work for a paper company. Can I do that? Then I'll meet lots of them when I go to CHA.

I have company coming tomorrow. So mostly cleaning today! I'll chat and scrap this evening, though. If we have enough people we could do a recipe challenge. Who will be around?

Dang, yesterday flew by for me and it wasn't because I was crafting. I was cleaning, cleaning, cleaning (like Caro said) yesterday. I did the house chores that I didn't catch up to over the weekend. I tried to chat but when I sat down the DD wanted to use the laptop as well, than she got cranky and I put her to sleep. Sooo, here are my late discussion answers:

What challenge will you do first?
I really like the first one. I've been wanting to do one, just haven't had the inspiration. Hopefully the challenge entries can give me a boost.

Will you be chatting with the GG?
Probably not, I want to at least chat with you girls first. I'm such a bad YS, I haven't been able to do anything lately and I just feel bad.

If you could meet one and only one famous scrapper, who would it be and why?
I don't have one. I love everyone really.

Caro - hope you enjoy your time with your family!

Discussion: I would love to meet Kelly purkey or Kristina Werner. There are so many scrapbooking celebrities I'd want to meet, but especially these two because they're both graphic designers and have ended up doing my dream job and designing scrapbooking products! I'm so curious as to how that all started for them.

Ruth, don't feel bad, we still love you!

I do!

I've been battling my wireless router all day. Again. I was on the phone with my internet service provider for an hour yesterday troubleshooting, and we confirmed that it's the router. So I look up reviews today & it has TERRIBLE reviews, all saying that it drops their signal constantly. grrr. Enough time has passed that I don't think Belkin will do anything about it. So frustrating.

Anyway, hoping to get my mojo to scrap soon! I'm still a little tired from our slumber party last night.

Hi girls
9.30am here in London, in PJs in the living room (under the blanket)
My parents are sleeping upstairs in our room, Damien is gone to work (but manage to make pancake batter for us!!)
I just catched up on the thread

Yesterday was amazing, especially seeing everyone that was important to me again since last June it was really nice. Apparently my mum fucked up all the pictures of me getting on the stage and getting the faked paper with the red ribbon because this was too emotional!!!
Let me explain, they don't do that at all in France, we don't celebrate diploma. And my parents flew over for 1 day just to be at my graduation!

today we are thinking of visiting the V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum) it is mainly the desing museum of London. If my parents get up... They leave this afternoon at 4pm and 5pm (they have different planes in different airports..)

@Rachel: I do have instagram

@Loni: where can I find your recipe challenge? (I saw Rach putting her pit on inta mentionning it)

have a nice day see you later!

**** RECIPE CHALLENGE ****

Okay, the rules of a recipe challenge - I don't really know them. So, my made up rules are - follow this recipe to make your page and link it up here because we all want to see!

1. Choose your photos and background paper. 2 4x4 photos and 1 12x12 patterned paper for your background. Keep in mind the CHA challenges. Most of them could work for this.

2. Cut your remaining patterned paper to these dimensions.
2 6x6 pps
1 6x3
1 6x1

3. Use ribbon, washi or 2 1/2x12 inches of pp. The ribbon and washi will be 2 strips of 12 inches in length.

4. 2 tones of paint. (You may want to add this before the paper layer - keep that in mind before you adhere the pp.)

5. Embellishments:
4 circle elements
3 square/rectangle elements
3 tags/labels
1 die cut shape
and use wood veneer
and use enamel dots or brads

6. Finally add your Title and handwritten journaling

Have fun with it!
