July Scrapbooking Challenge Details

I'm really far behind on my own scrapbooking and lacking the motivation to really get started on it again. So, I've decided to see if there are others out there like me to help motivate each other. Here are the details for my Use Your Stash Page Challenge for July:

--You may not purchase anything except scrapbooking adhesive or photo/ film developing in the month of July. Stock up now on anything you may need! We'll use the honor system on this one, but if you purchase other supplies, then you're out of this part of the challenge. Lets use up those supplies we have lying around collecting dust!
--Set a page goal for the month of July--as many as you feel comfortable completing or need to complete. The focus is on meeting your goal NOT who does the most pages for the month. Challenge yourself to get some pages accomplished!
--I will be providing prizes from my stash to the winners from both challenges--use your stash and page goals. Both digital and traditional scrapbook styles are welcome in this one. :)

What to do until July 1st--
1. sign up on this blog post or on my Facebook Fan page so I can get a list together. Names and email addresses will be helpful.
2. Order photos, purchase supplies, organize your scrapbook room/ supplies so you'll be ready to go once July 1st gets here next week. Remember, no purchasing new supplies in the new month!
3. If you make page kits to speed up the process, feel free to get started organizing your page kits.

I need this challenge more than anyone, and I'm so excited! Hopefully a few of you will decide to join the challenges with me. I promise to help make it fun for all of us!

So obviously, I'm in for both challenges. I'm really going to try for at least 45 pages during the month of July. I may not get a page every day, but that would at least be a good start on my pile of pictures to scrapbook.

Sign me up for the challenges :-) I so need something like this to get me going. I haven't worked on my kids stuff in way too long. My goal will be 30 pages.

I'm in! 10 pages for me. Looks like I may be the group underachiever; ) Abi

There are no underachievers, Abi. We're all here to support each other, and the important part is that we get something done, right? Anything would be more than I've done the last few months!

Count me in! I need some motivation! I'm hosting our church scrapbooking crop here on Friday, so hopefully that will get me going.

Oh! Guess I forgot to leave my goal. I'd like to try to get 10 pages done this month too. I also still need to get my teacher thank you cards done, so I will be making those and filling them out to mail.

I left my goal on Facebook, which was 35 pages! I have a ton of photos from our Alaskan cruise last year so hoping to start and finish the album in July!
