I need some motivation to scrap on a regular basis, and I love challenges, but I'm overwhelmed by the sheer number of them out there.

I'd love it if you could share your favorite weekly challenge, whether it's here at Two Peas, or elsewhere.

Thanks in advance!

I'm following this post, as I would like to hear what others say. BUT! The one I think I like (cause I haven't actually done it yet) is the StashBuster's, which is posted by ScrapNataya, I believe. I also think I will like the Scrap Your Stash, by the Garden Girls. I am all about using what I have, at this point. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to emulate a style and you have to go out and buy more...

I don't follow any weekly challenges just b/c of time. I've tried to save challenges on other boards and use them at a later date, but could never motivate myself after the "moment". This is why SKETCHES work the best for me as far as challenges. I have made some of my quickest and favoritest LO's using sketches. I can use whatever I have on hand for colors and embellishing and grab a photo or several that are asking me to scrap them and GO!
I keep a stash of sketches in a notebook and I have a couple of apps on my smart phone that are my go to's when I have a moment to scrap and have no place to start.

Check out Stashbusters...Five prompts bi-weekly. Marianne's prompts are super and I have finished over 50 ages this year. You can always find one f her prompts to work with your current stash. The girls on the thread are really supportive.


It was fate that I would enjoy paper crafts...my name is Sharmon (like the TP)!

Stashbusters went straight to the top of my list. It looks like exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

I have to say Stashbusters is my favorite as well. There is always at least 1 prompt that calls to me. I like that there is a variety of prompts because I can pick and choose what works for me. The challenge had me scrapping more in three months than I did the entire previous year.
