Welcome to Off The Rails Scrapbooking.

Off the Rails Scrapbooking blog is no ordinary blog, we are here to challenge you. When designing a card, a layout or a mixed media project think outside the square, go where you have never gone before. Go Off the Rails! We have an amazing Design Team that come from all over the world and are here to inspire you.

Our challenges are posted on the First of each month and will run the entire month.

Guidelines of the challenge

You can create any sort of project that sparks your imagination, so long as it fits into the challenge theme. It must be a new creation, (please no back linking).

Please make it as easy as possible for our Designers to leave comment on your work, keep in mind that flickr and "private" blogger posts we can not leave feedback on, therefore we can not except your entry. 

You can enter our challenges twice as long as you have created something different for each project. eg a card and layout or a layout or digital layout.

When linking your projection to our blog please make sure that it is a direct link to the project and not just your blog in general and that you 
use your name and where you are from eg Sam - USA. This makes it easier when the Design Team come for a visit.
We do ask that you mention our challenge in your blog post and include a link to Off The Rails Scrapbooking. You can enter your creation into as many other challenges as you like.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact one of the admins of the blog which you will find the details in contact us.

To win the prize that is on offer you must be a follower of the blog

The last and finally rule is..........HAVE FUN.

  4. I've entered twice, using one theme for one and the other theme for the other entry. Hope this is correct? Well, that's how I've interpreted it anyway.
