Today marks the start of the Mousescrappers Annual Speed Scrap Marathon Weekend! It’s an exciting weekend full of chats, scraps and prizes that you won’t want to miss. If you’ve never heard of it, essentially the weekend is made up of 14 Speed Scraps, complete each speed scrap within the allotted time and you get the participation prize. If you complete half of the Speed Scraps you ALSO get the half marathon goodie bag, complete ALL of the speed scraps and you get the full marathon goodie bag ON TOP OF THAT! So, you see how the prizes can rack up fast depending on how many scraps you can fit in this weekend.
And for those of you that don’t know what a speed scrap is, each speed scrap starts with a chat at specific time (you can check the full list here). In the chat the hostess will give a set of instructions for things to include on your page, like a recipe, the first is given on the hour, and then the following instructions are given one by one, usually at 10 minute increments, for the duration of the hour long chat. The hostess will then give you a deadline to turn in your page by to receive the prize…. It sounds scary but I promise you it’s not! You can either join in on the chat (more info here), or follow along with the instructions in the forums (found here). Either way as long as you have your page in the corresponding thread by the deadline you will receive the prize.
Sound good? Well make sure you join me for my chat today at 2:00pm EDT | 1:00pm CDT | 12.00pm MDT | 11:00am PDT | 6:00pm GMT (which is actually 7:00pm British Summer Time). Anyone that completes my Speed Scrap on time will pick up these cute journal cards and charms:
And my CT member Becca is also hosting a Speed Scrap this Sunday, make sure you join her at 10:00am EDT | 9:00am CDT | 8:00am MDT | 7:00am PDT | 2:00pm GMT (which is actually 3:00pm British Summer Time). I also donated the prize to her scrap, you can pick up this fun Mouse Stamped alpha pack:
