Get Connected Online Crop!

Get Connected

There are so many ways to get connected to the world of scrapbooking!

Twitter, Facebook, Email and Blogs are just a few! Two Scrapbook Friends invites you to join them and their wonderful Design Team and be inspired by all the ways we can get connected during our Online Crop in our Forum. Our Designers and the Two Friends will be issuing creative Social Media inspired challenges to thaw your Winter creativity! There will also be games to play and prizes to be won. So get yourself organized......the fun begins today!

I was assigned Instagram for my challenge! Instagram is an online photo-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures, apply digital filters to them (enhance your photo), and share them on a variety of social networking sites, the most popular ones being Facebook or Twitter. A distinctive feature is that it confines photos to a square shape, similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid images.

I have Instagram and I love it. It is a great way to stay connected with people! It gives you a 'snapshot' look into their lives!  For my challenge I created a 3D Polaroid camera.


I purchased the SVG file from Lettering Delights and used my Silhouette to cut it out.


It even has an opening in the front and back to have a Polaroid coming in and out.


I never owned a real Polaroid camera, so this one will have to do :)


So, my challenge is to use a Polaroid on your project.  It can be a 'real' Polaroid photo, or you can make is up to you!  I hope you will join in the fun over on our forum.

 Want to know more? Here are some of the specifics!

1. Each Design Team Member and the Two Friends will post an inspiring and creative SOCIAL MEDIA based challenge with a great example in the Forum. Once you have completed each challenge, upload a photo of it to our Layout Gallery and link it back to the appropriate challenge thread in the Forum. (ALL LAYOUTS MUST BE CREATED JUST FOR THIS CROP to qualify for prizes. ) Finally, each layout will count towards only ONE challenge. Be sure to upload no later than February 18th at 11:59 pm.

2. There is a special category in the Layout Gallery for each challenge and participants MUST post a photo of their project under the correct category in the Gallery to be eligible for any prizes. Just be sure to resize the photos to less than 500 pixels (width and/or height). Its super easy but you must be registered on the Gallery before you can post. Please let TSF Joanne or DT Christa know if you need help...

3. Now for the best part! There are three prizes to be won: A) random draw for participation, B) random draw for completing all challenges, C) favorite overall winner voted on by the DT and the Two Friends.

4. In addition, the Two Friends and the DT will be choosing a favourite from her own category and that winner will be awarded 50 buttons!

The winners will be posted no later than February 20th on the Forum.
