Default Sweet Shoppe Challenge Bingo: October 2017

Howdy, Sweet Shoppers!! For those that are located in the Northern Hemisphere, Fall is upon us! Which loosely translates into changing leaves, hay rides, pumpkins and cooler temperatures. I hope the October card will inspire you while providing some fun and unique new prompts to help get your memories scrapped and preserved.

Just want to give a quick reminder about a few of the minor changes to our Bingo Challenges we recently rolled out, which we think are working well and making participating even easier! Remember, everything related to our Bingo Challenges can now be found within our Bingo Community Challenge Forum. We are hosting a New Bingo Faq thread every month [see October 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 now be 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 your 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 Hello Autumn: Cozy Season by 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.

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 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 October 31st, 2017, 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 or Flergs! 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 October 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!

Was planning to get mine done but the storm here in Maine took out out power on Monday. The govenor declared a state of emergency. We're still without power and therefore I havent been able to use my PC to scrap. Was hoping for grace and a deadline extension to get my last LO done when the power comes back on.
