Default Sweet Shoppe Challenge Bingo: January 2015

Happy New Year Sweet Shoppers! All of us here at SSD hope you had an amazing break over the holidays, and that you're ready to scrap like crazy in the upcoming year as a community!

We are really excited because we're rolling out a brand new challenge format that we think is super fun, and that we really hope you're going to love! Scrap a little or scrap a lot, we think this new format offers lots of options and something for everyone!

As you can see from the title of this post, we're playing Bingo each month here at SSD for our challenges in 2015, and we think it's going to be sweet!

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 new challenges are designed to be fairly simple, straightforward and open to interpretation for the most part, so have fun with them! 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!


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 February 1st, 2015, and our lovely challenge fairy 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 Ana of Sugary Fancy and Christine of Digilicious Designs! 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! You'll also want 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 New Year and Happy Scrapping from our entire team here at SSD!

Robin

OH MY GOSH! This is amazing. I literally came onto the forums to see if the new challenge system had been posted up yet & I'm very pleased with what you've come up with. YAY for choices! Can't wait to get scrapping!

I'm have too much of my own scrapping work piled up to get this many challenge LO'S done, so I won't be participating. But I'll give it a try when I have some more time in a couple of months. Can't wait to see everyone's LO'S though!

LOVE this format so much! I know I've had a bit of a head start "behind the scenes" but I've already done 4 pages for the Bingo challenges! I'm feeling so inspired by this game!

I started a challenge several years ago but got distracted and only completed a few pages. This looks fun, so I think I'll try again. Maybe I can actually get some pages done, rather than just being a supply hoarder.

I have not scrapped in a few years so, is it possible to

Thank you!

It's OK to use older/retired kits as long as they are from current SSD designers. Have fun!
