Welcome to Camp Scrap!

Every Sunday, I will post a bulletin (you’re reading the first one!) and share what is coming over the following week in Camp Scrap. It’s my spot to share information I think you might want, give you some teasers as to what projects and prizes are coming, and just check in. Remember if you have questions or comments feel free to leave a note on any blog post, or email me directly. Let’s get started by sharing this week’s schedule of activities:

Before I go, I’ll share some FAQ answers here:

What is Camp Scrap? It is based off of my popular BPC class of the same name, and it is 7 weeks of nonstop creative play.

Where can I find all the Camp Scrap posts? All Camp Scrap posts will post to my blog, you can read them all (any time, for as long as I blog) here, or you can get posts delivered via email (sign up for that in my side-bar), read on google reader, etc.

What do I need to pack? Nothing! Whatever you have at home in your stash will work great.

What is the supply list? There isn’t one. I’m working from my stash, you can do the same. You may discover something new you want along the way – or you may rediscover treasure in your own stash. I will be posting supply lists for each project that I share – so you will be able to see exactly what I use each day.

Will there be assignments? Nope. Your participation could simply be reading and entering for prizes, creating based off of some of the ideas I share, or going totally your own direction. This is inspiration, zero pressure, no such thing as being “behind” kind of an event.

How often will you post projects? What will they be? Monday > Friday now through July 27 a new project will post. Tags, layouts, cards, altered projects… all kinds of paper crafts will be shown.

Where is the free Camp Scrap community? Right here. Thanks Big Picture for sponsoring that!

What’s up with the sponsorships? You don’t usually have that here. Normally no, my blog isn’t sponsored. When brainstorming Camp Scrap 2012, and figuring out how to make it a free event, this is how it worked out. And I’m THRILLED! We get to see some truly great companies featured, some wonderful (maybe new to you) stores highlighted, and it all remains free for you. The sponsors support is making this free event possible- and I can’t thank them enough for that. I hope you’ll check them out, and if you are in a crafty shopping mood consider shopping from them and support these great companies!
