July 2011 Virtual Crop Scheduled!

I am pleased to announce the day and time for the July 2011 Virtual Crop: Saturday, July 2nd from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and from 9:00 p.m. to midnight. All times are Eastern USA {Miami/New York}. To convert to your time zone, clock here: Time Zone Converter.

During the crop, I will be streaming live from my scraproom with some projects and chit chat for you to enjoy: my UStream channel.

This crop will also have challlenges and prizes for you to enjoy. Like previous crops, you will get one chance to win for each challenge you complete. Throughout the afternoon and evening, I will be creating new posts here on my blog with challenges to inspire you. You will have until 9:00 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, July 5th to complete the challenges and link your to my blog.

The link can be to photos you upload to an online gallery, or to a YouTube video, or to a post on your personal blog. At 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, I will close the challenges to new submissions and select winners randomly from those who posted challenges. Challenge entries are not judged. Winners are selected using a random number generator. One entry is randomly chosen from the submissions for each challenge.

July's crop challlenge prizes include a Prima white wildflower pillar pack, a sampler of my favorite twine from the Twinery & one of the house minis from the upcoming Hometown Summer project.

I hope you will all join me in celebrating my 30th birthday! There will be cropping, laughing and plenty of chances to win some of my favorite scrapbooking items! See you there!

  3. This really doesn't really have to do anything with the virtual crop, beside I can't wait, but I don't know if you can help me or not. I am trying to join Life on the Scrapbeach and never get an email back to verify that I signed up. I put my email addy in there and a password but nothing ever happens. Any suggests. Let me know. Thanks!!

  4. Thanks for the birthday wishes, Zandra! I'm giving away your Junkitz prize bundle at the crop this weekend ~ thank you so much for offering it!

    I hope you can make it, too, Carol! :D

    Aw, sorry you'll bee missing it, Patrice, but I hope you enjoy your trip & come back with lots of things to scrapbook! We'll be having another crop next month, so maybe you can join us then. :D

    I don't know why you're having trouble signing up for the Ning site ~ unfortunately, I don't know too much about the technical side of things. I would recommend contacting Ning directly on their help site: They have lots of great info and helpful people there! Sorry I couldn't be more help, but I hope they can get it figure out for you. :D

  7. Hi Kathryn
    Oh my word, I finally figured out what was going on with trying to get an account with Scrapbeach. I have tried to get on this site off and on for over a year and would never get an email confirming I can joined the site. Well as I am checking my emails there was nothing again so I am getting frustrated trying to think what is going on. Just about to get a hold of ning site. So I get up and forget about it for awhile, come back to computer not even thinking about scrapbeach,(no offense) and something told me to check spam, and guess what I found? Don't be shocked BUT my compiter decided to concider Scrapbeach spam. Could not believe. So we had a little talk and it understands now the Scrapbeach is not spam LOL Thanks for your suggestion and all the awesome things you do.

  8. WHAT!? Doesn't your email know how important all things scrapping are!? I'm glad you gave it a little bit of education, because that is a serious mistake ~ LOL! So glad you were fially able to get in!

    ~Kathryn :D
