Default Sweet Shoppe Challenge Bingo: April 2018

Howdy-Howdy Sweet Shoppers!! I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of Spring and the bounty of blossoms and sunshine she'll bring with her! It's been an overly dreary and bitterly cold winter in my part of the country and I'm ready for some warmer temperatures! ♥ I hope this month's card will help to inspire you while providing some fun and unique new prompts to assist in getting your memories scrapped and preserved.

Everything related to our Bingo Challenges can be found within our Bingo Community Challenge Forum. We host a New Bingo Faq thread every month [see April here], where you can quickly and easily ask for help or clarification on any of the current challenges featured while referencing a copy of the card provided within that thread. Also, all of our weekly Bingo with the Babes inspirational threads are pinned/stuck to the top of the challenge forum each week, as they're posted, and will remain there throughout the month they are current. It is our hope that this helps in getting answers to you faster and makes our inspirational threads easier to locate.

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! Like always, challenges in quotes indicate a word or phrase which should appear as shown on your layout. Otherwise, remember that 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!

This month's Bingo card was created using Scrap Your Stories: SPRING by Studio Flergs & Kristin Cronin-Barrow

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.

Alternatively, you can scrap any two horizontal or vertical lines, or a combination of one of each, to earn your pattern bingo discount!
Please Note: The rules for the center space still apply!

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 grab your own personal bingo card. Once you've completed a challenge, resize your layout to 160 x 160px (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 March 31st, 2018 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 KCB or Willemijne! Our superstar designer Libby will choose at least 4 lucky winners at random 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 April 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! Finally, HUGE thanks to each of you who play along with us each month. We adore seeing your pages and filled bingo cards and truly hope you love playing along with us too!

Happy scrapping!

I'm going to TRY for blackout, but we're expecting our first Grandbaby boy ANY DAY now (she was due on the 23rd) so I might not make it. I'm happy with hitting the 30% off in any case!
