2016 Marathon - Game #2
Now that all the Speed Scraps have been posted, are you ready for another game? :) This will be a mini makeover!

Speed Scraps are a ton of fun, but sometimes you just run out of time to get your layout just right. Maybe you didn't get a chance to edit your picture. Maybe the SS instruction said no journaling, but you ALWAYS journal. Maybe you had to use a staple, but you didn't really know where to use it, so you aren't happy where it is.

I don't want you to change your layout so much that it looks completely different. But if there's something you wanted to change, now's your chance!

Post your original layout AND your new layout in this thread by Saturday, April 9, noon ET. Yes I'm giving you almost a week, since I know after the excitement of the weekend, you might want to take a break from the computer. ;)

Here's the LO I chose. The instructions asked for 3 word art strips, and while I love them, I just didn't think they fit the look I wanted on the LO. I spent forever moving them all over lol and this is the original LO

I removed the word art strips, moved the Sebastian element down a bit, and moved the date to the top of the pic

This is what you will be re-scrapping for, Mouse and Friends v.3 {journal cards}
There are four 3x4 journal cards in both horizontal and vertical orientations. Thanks for the awesome PP, Wendy!!

Awesome game!
saving my spot!

disfamily07 04-03-2016 07:17 PM

I know exactly which page I'm doing this on!

roxana 04-03-2016 08:14 PM

me too!!! but tomorrow :surrender:

Here's my redo, Im trying to put the most pics on a LO so added one more instead of some square papers. And added kinda title for the bottom part as it had no sense, at least for me, having two different themes and just one title.

my original

Kendra 04-04-2016 02:59 AM

Feel the Force fix
Here is mine. I took off the date (which I realized after I'd originally posted was incorrect) and the staples. I also adjusted the b&w photo contrast and brightness. Thanks!

Improved version:

Added stitches, racoon, oars, string, flower, changed the effect of the title to a dark kraft and removed the button.

Original version:

Here's my re-do for speed scrap #205.
I changed the papers for the mats and I deleted the heart with date and changed that with a few other elements.
Thanks for the extra goodie!
Here's my first page:
And here's my re-do:

I also re-did my page for the first speed scrap, since I have a typo on that one... :(

Jojo 04-04-2016 07:30 AM

I went back to my #209 lay out and changed my clusters a bit so it fits better in my Disneyland book.

Got2Scrap 04-04-2016 08:36 AM

Thank you for hosting and the participation prize.

My redo - I enlarged the photo to spread across the page vertically and put the title on the page rather than below and added layer under the photo instead of matting and added stitches.

DianeInOz 04-04-2016 09:10 AM

Here is my redo!
I got rid of the checkered alpha, got rid of the ribbon, got rid of the banner, and got rid of the tinkertoy
Added the date tag

Here is the original

ladyleopard1106 04-04-2016 10:31 AM is my original-

Hubs hated the background paper, and I HATE the fonts I used (along with other bad choices). I was just aiming to finish the page. LoL

AND....the redo! I like this so much more!

doodlebugz3 04-04-2016 12:55 PM

I wasn't 100% happy with this page. It was just to busy on the bottom for me. I'm much happier with it now.

Here is my Re-do -

Here is my original -

Thanks for the great challenge.

krscraps 04-04-2016 04:12 PM


I didn't like the random placement of the buttons (which I did to get to the 6 of the same element instruction). So I removed 4 of them. XD

This is probably my favorite page from the marathon. 04-04-2016 04:44 PM

Didn't like the arrows and the tittle so much; added a mask and date a new element

Here's my Original Layout:

Here's my Re-do:

shahar29 04-04-2016 04:49 PM

I LOVED this page - but it occurred to me that when and if I ever print it - it will feel too"big" so I decided to redo it by making the photo smaller and adding more embellishments to make sure the page still feels !!!

Here is my original:

I'm still frustrated that I saved it wrong and it's blurry! The original isn't! If anyone knows how to switch it out for a better copy - let me know!

Here is the redo -

Murmer 04-04-2016 05:28 PM

This one was always going to be a two I went back and did the second page and fix a few things in the first.

Here are my updates:

Spacecadetswife 04-05-2016 10:32 AM



I always go in and "fix" my layouts from these super scrap weekends--some more than others. I mean we're under the wire, exhausted, and you just see stuff after you post your layout in the gallery that just looks yucky.

I had major computer issues during my Club Cool layout, which was driving me nuts.

Brandee 04-05-2016 03:42 PM

I made changes to the papers on my layout. Made them smaller and lined them up.



shell12367 04-05-2016 05:11 PM

changed to

mnjenlittle 04-05-2016 07:48 PM

These were my two version for ss 206. I found the map I had wanted to use, I also cleaned up the title/journaling space.

In addition, I also added a photo to ss 204.

Chays52 04-06-2016 07:57 AM

I was disappointed in my layout for SS 209.

The photo I had just didn't work in a circle mat so I reset the color to original and I adjusted and added to the clusters and the title.




ratgirl24 04-06-2016 02:18 PM

2016 Speed Scrap Marathon - Game #2 - Redo
I had several to choose from! ;)

I redid the layout from SS #209. I did not like the photo effect. I need to learn some tricks! So, I reverted to the original picture. I also did not like the font that I chose to go with the title, so I just took out the font. My title didn't line up correctly, so I adjusted it.

Thanks for the fun game and PP!

Old layout

New layout: I replaced the polka dot paper with a solid, took out the staples and added another animal

RMSTigger 04-06-2016 07:46 PM

Thanks for hosting a fun game!

Here is my original page for SS206:

And here is my revision:

I didn't make too many changes but I needed to add some more papers and one small cluster to balance the page.

AMercil 04-06-2016 07:48 PM

Thanks for a fun game! I did not change much but the effect on the photo! Thanks for the challenge and the PP!

Here is my original layout:

I really wanted to use this fun word art template, but the original called for an alpha. So here is the new layout:

tukogirl 04-07-2016 03:52 PM

Here is my original page:

When I posted it I thought the proportions were a bit off and the pic needed to be bigger to balance out the big title and cluster. So I made the pic bigger. I also wanted to add a scatter during the speed scrap but couldn't find just the right one in a hurry so I added it in. Wasn't sure I liked the journaling so I took that out.

mstalbot1 04-07-2016 06:06 PM

Here is my new one:

Should we post our new pages in the forum?

KristeenK 04-07-2016 06:44 PM

Redo Challenge
Changed the title - made the word strip bigger - and added a smudge instead of the duplicate elements & added journaling.

Route66 04-07-2016 06:49 PM

Okay here is my first layout and not loving it so much...had to redo it.

I switched out the frame for a banner, got rid of the pattern paper and added a couple of themed elements to the tag.

Wahoomrm 04-08-2016 08:11 AM

Game 2
I added some more embellishments, including some animals to go with the Tree of Life theme...

kwhite 04-08-2016 01:36 PM


Here's my before:


Here's my after:


I just didn't some moving around, adjusting and changed the size of a few things. I didn't have enough time during the SS.

sewfun06 04-08-2016 05:57 PM

Game 2
Thanks for the game!

Here is my original layout:

I changed the background paper (I just really wasn't happy with the polka dots).
I removed the buttons, moved the elements around, changed the title and added some journaling.

zippyoh 04-08-2016 08:42 PM

Here's my 1st LO:

and my 2nd LO after a couple tweaks. I combined the journaling and took the frame out:

Thanks for the fun game and the super cute PP!

branan5 04-08-2016 08:52 PM

Thanks for a fun game Heather! This was my least favorite LO from the Marathon, I'm happier with it now though. Thanks Wendy for the PP!!!


added/changed some elements, changed the background paper, fussed with the title

luv2scrapmm 04-09-2016 03:46 AM

My original from SS 213:

My redo: I used a font for the title, removed the banner, added the water splashes and page borders and changed the background paper.

Linda P. 04-09-2016 06:19 AM

I KNEW this was going to be the one to be re-done even before it was finished!

I love big, bold titles, so having to pick one word was a challenge for me! Then I had a hard time finding something to change one of the letters just felt like it wasn't working for me! I also tried to brighten up a couple of the photos - and fixed the tile on the popcorn wagon. It feels more "me" now. :D

janette 04-09-2016 08:19 AM

Thanks for Hosting Heather and Wendy for the great cards.

This is my original - I thought the polka dots detracted from the pictures and wanted to simplify the title.

This is the new version:
