Default Second Chance: Week 4

This is the final week of competition! 3 of you will win the chance to guest CT for theStudio for 1 month - either October, November or December. First place gets first choice etc.

Here is your challenge. This week we will be creating TWO layouts. The first will use a kit by Deanna of Flower Scraps. It's a fun school themed kit called My First Day - we have pulled together a sampler of this kit for you to play with. Your download will also contain a coupon if you want to purchase the full kit, but for this challenge we're asking you to use the sampler.



Much like last week, using samplers, add ons and mini kits can be tricky because you're working with a smaller number of papers and elements, so it can really stretch you to create a beautiful layout and show off the kit! This sampler contains 5 papers and 12 elements. The extra challenge is to use at least 3 of the papers on your layout in some way.

Your second layout must use the Second Chances blog hop kit by theStudio Designers. You can pop over to www.nibblesskribbles.com to join the hop if you missed out on it when it went live. One of the challenges in working with collab kits (and blog hops) is making sure to showcase the full kit, meaning more than one designer. I would like to see the use of items by at least 5 of the participating designers!

Additionally you must upload BOTH layouts in at least 2 other galleries and post links to them here in the forum.

You MUST properly credit your layout including a link to where customers can find the kits. You will be eliminated if you do not properly credit your layouts.

This is the final week! Thank you for participating! There will be no public voting for this round. Winners will be announced…..someday!

Layouts are due September 27 at 23:59 studio time (Eastern Time)

Questions:

1. Do we credit the original full kit - My First Days or the Sampler?

2. Do we credit the Second Chances collab with links????????? or just The Studio Second Chances Blog Hop or collab? and if we link this do we link up the nibblesskribbles.com link above or is it in the store?

thanks

1. Credit sampler, link to full kit.

2. No, you do not need to link to the Second Chances Blog Hop, you do need to individually credit the designers you use!

Ok have a question... most other scrapbook galleries DO NOT allow linking to any other stores.. So how should we link these kits in that case? Maybe just say the Store's name or what??? I know there has to be a simple solution... ;-)

Default Re: Second Chance: Week 4

I just looked at 2 galleries. One I know I can post links to here but the other not so (Scrapbird). I can post the images, but not the links. Any suggestions of open galleries. I can post it o PinInterest with links. Does that count? I know several others have changed their policies for linking ot other stores or blogs. Just wondering who allows it and who doesn't?

So along with the two other galleries do we post them here too? Because I can't find the right gallery here and I have a page to post

I need to get the galleries set up. I will in my morning. I will also come back my morning with some open galleries. However it is not required that you post to open galleries for this challenge. So if the gallery you are uploading to does not allow outside linking. That's fine.

For those of you wondering about adding links- These are open galleries (meaning they allow links to outside products): My Scrapbook Art, DigiShopTalk, DigiScrap Addicts, Scrapbookgraphics, Digichick. I am sure there are others but these are the ones I know...

I realize we don't have to post in open galleries for this challenge but I thought I would post these anyway in case someone wants them!

Good luck!

The gallery has been set up for this round (sorry I was late on that) and, Molly listed some open galleries -

reallifescrapped.com (requires you to leave comments for other layouts if you want to be active in uploading).
Digi Scrap Forum,.

Be sure to check the rules at any gallery you post in, some times rules change!

Also, I will accept layouts pinned to Pinterest. If you choose this method - the link is automatic to the gallery (so make sure your credits are good) and in your info about the pin - be sure to list your credits!

Those mentioned above are the ones i use. the galleries are getting stricter and stricter. many have gone to having to use 50% of more of their products to post at all in their galleries.
