The best challenges for busy scrappers

Jennifer Wilson

I’m your guide here at Simple Scrapper. Our community helps people find what fills you up and fits your life in memory keeping.

February 17, 2009

Challenges are a great way to boost creativity, refine skills and earn a fantastic discount towards new goods! Many shops work on a month-by-month point system, so participation requires not only creativity but effective time management. So what is a busy memory keeper to do?

Enter ‘Rollover Points’
Many shops are transitioning to more flexible systems that allow participants to carry over points month to month. This greatly reduces the pressure to be a layout machine. These are challenges for the rest of us.

Where to Go
This list includes many popular shops that host challenges where the timing is friendly to the demands of real life! The links go directly to the challenge rules.

Do rollover points matter to you? Are there other shops that should join this list?
