Default Sweet Shoppe Challenge Bingo: April 2015

Sweet Shoppers, I think at this point you guys are in the swing of things and we hope you are enjoying our monthly challenges! The Babes were pretty excited to see this month's card behind the scenes and had lots of ideas, so I think you're going to enjoy the challenges we have in store for you to play with!

I know you guys are eager to get started, so read on for all of the details on our 2015 challenge system...

The Low-Down

To play along, check out this month's Bingo card and start planning your strategy for earning the discount you want. Our Bingo challenges are designed to be fairly simple, straightforward and open to interpretation for the most part, so have fun with them! Remember, as long as you try to scrap in the spirit of the challenge as it's posted, you'll be just fine, but let us know if you have any questions!


Note: challenges in quotes indicate a word or phrase which should appear as shown on your layout.

Sweet Rewards

Traditional Bingo: To earn a 20% discount, you'll need to scrap 5 challenges in a row in any direction. The center space may be used to choose another challenge of your choice from the card for a total of 5 layouts...



Pattern Bingo: To earn a 30% discount, you'll need to scrap 9 layouts in one of the following patterns again using the center space to choose a challenge of your choice from elsewhere on the card...




Blackout: To earn a 40% discount and be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to the shoppe, you'll need to get blackout and fill in your entire card (we'll let you have the center space free this time)...



Tracking & Earning Discounts

To track your challenges this year, click here to download your own personal bingo card. Once you've completed a challenge, resize your layout to 175 x 175px (which fits perfectly in a bingo square) and put it on the corresponding spot of the challenge on your bingo card!

Save your completed card and post it to this thread by midnight on May 1st, 2015, and our lovely challenge fairy, Lydia, will automatically send you your Sweet Rewards of 20, 30 or 40% off depending on the pattern on your card the second full M-F of every month!

The Nitty Gritty

You must use Sweet Shoppe products for the bulk of your page. Outside templates, minor accents, etc. are perfectly ok as long as at a glance the page is obviously created with products from our shoppe and designers!

Challenges MUST remain where they appear on the card. You MAY NOT scrap 9 layouts of your choice and simply put them in the corresponding pattern to earn a discount.

Obviously due to the size of the layouts on the tracker card, it would be difficult for us to check each challenge in detail to make sure it matches with the challenge, but we know we can count on our amazing community to play by the rules.

More Sweet Stuff

As if all of this weren't sweet enough, I'm excited to share that EVERYONE who posts a bingo card in a month with at least one line complete will be entered to win their choice of a kit from this month's Featured Designers Krystal & Heather! At least 4 lucky winners will be chosen from the field of challenge participants to win these sweet treats which is just awesome!

On that note, I'm going to let you get to work!! If you have any questions, please post them in our Challenge Bingo FAQ thread so that this tracker thread is easy to view at the end of the month!

Don't forget to keep your eyes open for our Bingo with the Babes threads for weekly challenge inspiration and the opportunity to share some of your favorite challenge layouts in more detail throughout the month!

Happy Scrapping from our entire team here at SSD!

Robin

Trying again this month I've been scrapping from all over the card instead of sticking to a pattern, so at the end of the month I end up with a card that's not worth posting. Maybe this month I won't wait until I'm done to post and will see if I stay more motivated.

No way I'll get any more done by the end of the month. It's still a winner!

I guess I should thank my older daughter for getting strep and making me take a sick day today b/c I still needed four layouts to complete my pattern today, lol.

I'm sad, I just realized I should have posted before midnight eastern and I was thinking my time. Spent the last few hours finishing my card only to realize it about 10 minutes ago.

There aren't technically "winners" with the Bingo challenges. You just earn discounts based on the number of challenges you complete. The discounts are good during the second full M-F of the following month.

I'll be sending out the discount codes for April tonight or sometime tomorrow.

Oh Marie, I'm glad you mentioned it! Robin had to make an emergency week-long trip across country to care for her mother, and even upon returning home, she's been completely covered up with details. I bet this totally slipped her mind. So sorry about that! I'll remind her.
