Default Sweet Shoppe Challenge Bingo: October 2016

It's October 1st sweet friends, and not only does that mean we have a brand new Bingo Card for you, but Digital Scrapbook Day is here on it's brand new celebration day, the first Saturday in October! Since we're coming off a month of fun and games thanks to our Open House, we decided to put our focus for the celebration on an amazing selection of new releases that are on sale for an incredible 40% off, so we hope you'll head to the shoppe a splurge on new goodies that you can use to complete our latest Challenge Bingo card! As usual, our card is absolutely scrumptious and super inspiring thanks to SugarBabes Juli & Loni, so check out what they whipped up for you guys & get scrappin' now!

Our challenge system is mostly the same for 2016, we've just put a little more heart into making each card special! You'll find repeating challenges each month if you're into themed albums or monthly pages and lots more, so read on for all of the details on 2016's Sweet Shoppe Challenge Bingo...

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 A Haunting We Will Go by Jady Day Studio

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.

New for 2016: Alternatively, you can scrap any two horizontal or vertical lines, or a combination of one of each, to earn your pattern bingo discount! (Thanks for the suggestion Rachel!) 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 download 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 November 1st, 2016, 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 Alice of Red Ivy Designs & Simone of Two Tiny Turtles! My right arm 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 2016 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! You'll also want to keep your eyes open today for your chance to win a Sweet Gift Certifcate and a bonus discount for scrapping along with us this DSD weekend!

Happy scrapping!

Robin

p.s. - we'd love to be able to really SEE your tracker cards - so if you can save your photo at 950px wide to photobucket or another offsite image hosting site that allows large images, and share those with us in the thread, that would be awesome!
