    Hello scrappers! Are you ready for some scrapping fun? Today’s challenge is a Scrappable Stackable. When these new-style templates were introduced this year, I was truly amazed at the depth of the detail and stunning composition of these products. They make scrapping a breeze, and in turn, guarantee gorgeous layouts for your memories. Consequently, I was turning cartwheels when I got to host today’s challenge featuring SCRAPPABLE STACKABLES. They are an exciting collaboration between Lynn Grieveson Designs and The Nifty Pixel (Pollywog Em, justagirl). Scrappable Stackables give you a wealth of options for creating pages with masterful layering and shadowing. Each set of Scrappable Stackables includes a page template PLUS a frame cluster, title cluster, and an embellishment cluster ready for you to personalize and make your own.

    Today’s challenge template will give you a taste of a full pack. The Scrappable Stackable template we are using for our challenge is filled with all kinds of layers for you to embellish to your heart’s content. You can flip it, rotate it, and add/subtract photos and elements to make it yours; just make certain we can still recognize it as originating from the original template.

    If you are new to digital scrapbooking or just need a refresher, here is a great tutorial from Cheryl (gonewiththewind) to get you started. VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING TEMPLATES

    Download your MOC Eight Scrappable Stackable template HERE.

    The rules for this scrap:
    • Create a layout using the provided template.
    • The template has to be recognizable in your page.
    • Change it up and make it your own! TLP product, besides the template, must be used in your layout.
    General Requirements:
    Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places:
    1. Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site).
    2. Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean.
    3. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish.
    Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).

    See you in the gallery. I look forward to seeing your creativity.

    ***The zip file has been updated with an alternate that has shorter file names for those who were experiencing problems unzipping***

    This space reserved for clarifications if needed

    Q: Can I change the drop shadowing on it?
    A: Yes

    Q: is it ok if we simplify the layout quite a bit?
    A: Yes, you may remove layers. Have fun with it; just make sure we can recognize some of the template in the end!!!

    Wow! This is one heck of a template!

    can I change the drop shadowing on it? I’m not big on huge shadows.

    I just wasn’t sure if the shadows were flattened with the piles.

    I had trouble with the download. I kept getting error messages about paths being too long on certain png layers. Could you tell me how many separate layers I should have in this download/template? The png folder is empty. The PSD file has 68 layers.

    Sometimes when that happens to me, dowloading the file directly to my computer's desktop works since it cuts out several levels of the file path name. Then once I've unzipped (and possibly shortened the names) I can move it where I want.

    gee this template intimidates me big time. @Iowan is it ok if we simplify the layout quite a bit? I’d be tempted to remove quite a few layers to start with as this template has way more layers than I’d normally use

    are you using a upzip program like "extract now"? I sometimes have this same issue and I find upzipping using the windows option works better...hope this makes sense...
