How do YOU scrapjack?????

Well, we thought it might be time for a bit of an explaination as to how you will all go about entering this wonderful challenge every month.

As you know, we here at Aussie Scrapjack will be nominating an Aussie scrapper for you to jack each month. On the first day of the month, we will reveal who the jackee is, display their work and a little about them. Each of us here at Aussie Scrapjack will then scraplift the jack, just to give you some inspiration.

It is then up to you to either 1) scraplift the displayed layout, or 2) go off to the jackee's online gallery or blog and find a layout by this person that you love and lift it.

There will be a winner announced at the end of the month. We will be choosing the winner from many criteria, including, the best scraplift that also includes the individual flair of the artist who has completed it. So you do not have to do a direct lift of the jack's work, you are free to interpret YOUR way, as long as the original principals of the jackee's LO are retained. Get it?

There will also be other mini winners through the month, suprise winners. It could be for completing a challenge, or simply for leaving a comment :)

Once you have completed your scrapjack LO, you then need to leave us a comment here at the blog. That comment needs to include a link to where your LO is displayed, be it on your blog or in an online gallery. You will also need to include a link to the LO that you have lifted (if it is a different one from the one here on the blog ). That is so we can see them. We will also need you to email a copy to our email address, just so we have a copy if there are problems.

You will all be able to access the comments section and go see what everyone has created :)

Tomorrow we will be posting a tutorial Petrina has done to help you all with linking. Some of us are experts, some of us have no included LOL, so that will be a great thing for everyone to learn :)

So stay tuned for that tomorrow.

We can also reveal that the lovely Maria from Scrapboxx has sponsored this first jack. The prize is a beauty and will be revealed on Sunday with the announcement of out first jack!

If you have any questions about how this is all going to work, please post a comment asking your question and we will answer them asap. Its all pretty easy though, and going to be heaps of FUN!

Only 2 sleeps until the first jack is announced!
