Sorry about the late posting today but I was waiting for the weekly challenges to be posted.
First up is the Word of the Week Challenge which runs from Sunday, October 16 to Saturday, October 22. This week's word is Pumpkin. Post your layouts in this week's WOW thread by Saturday night to earn your points. Remember that to earn the bonus points, you need to complete each week's challenge, you can find the WOW rules & point tracking thread right here.
Next is the Challenge of the Week which runs from Sunday, October 16 to Saturday, October 16. This week is Font challenge using the font Dirty Headline. See this week's COW thread to download the font & post your layout by Saturday night to earn your points. Remember that to earn the bonus points, you need to complete each week's challenge, you can find the COW rules & point tracking thread right here.
This week's Featured Designer Challenge is brought to you Crystal of Digital Scrap Fun & will run from Monday, October 17 to Sunday, October 23. Here's some fun information about Crystal & a preview of the participation prize you'll get if you post a layout by next Sunday night. Even better, Crystal has put her whole store on sale for 40% off until Sunday so if you don't have any of her fabulous kits yet, now you've got a great excuse to pick one up!
To complete this challenge, you simply need to create a layout using any current kits that are still for sale in Crystal's store [retired kits will not count]. Please refrain from combining kits/parts from other designers for this challenge, but if you would like to use more than one kit by Crystal on your layout that would be fine. Hurry & get those layouts done to earn the participation prize!
I wanted to make sure you all knew about this week's speed scraps as the first one is tomorrow, Monday, October 17th at 10 AM PT / 11 AM MT / 12 PM CT / 1 PM ET & will be hosted by Michelle of Just For You Digi Scraps. Come join Michelle & other forum members in the chat room or follow along in the speed scrap thread.
The week's other speed scrap will be Thursday, October 20 at 12 PM PT / 1 PM MT / 2 PM CT / 3 PM ET & will be hosted by Michele of MDK Scraps. Come join Michele & other forum members in the chat room or follow along in the speed scrap thread.
The Fine Print: You'll earn points on almost all of the challenges & when you reach 500 points, you'll receive a $5.00 gift card to the Stuff to Scrap store to purchase anything that catches your fancy. Points roll over from month to month & do not expire! Please remember that to earn any extra bonus points, you must state in your challenge post that you've used 90% or more current STS products or you will not earn the bonus points. There is no double dipping with challenges, i.e. you cannot use a layout made for a speed scrap for one of the monthly challenges or use one layout for two challenges. The only exception is a double page layout where each side is for a different challenge. The use of quick pages for challenge layouts are not allowed, all layouts must be made from scratch or with a template. You are most welcome to make a post in the October Challenge Round-up thread to keep track of all the challenges & points you've earned. As always, any layouts featured in this post are linked to the gallery for easy love leaving.
