Default **Closed** Week 2 Challenge


Holiday Hoopla Collab by Snickerdoodle Designs & Kimberkatt Scraps

Welcome to Week 2 of the Layout Artist contest! You blew us away with your work last week, and we're just as excited to see what you do this week! You should be receiving/have received a PM with your coupon to pick up this beautiful collab by Snickerdoodle Designs & Kimberkatt Scraps. (These will be sent 9/9 and 9/10 in the morning to those who have signed up in the sign up thread)

Requirements: Create 2 beautiful layouts using this collab. This collection is themed around the holidays, but one of your layouts must use this kit for a layout that has nothing to do with holiday fun! The other layout can be themed to the holidays if you would like. One of your layouts must also feature a photo-treatment. This can be as simple as turning it black and white or as complicated as you want! You may combine these two tasks into the same layout if you would like.

Each layout must be uploaded to the Week 2 Gallery and must include proper credits, including a link to the kit in the store. We are aware of issues with leaving information when you upload your layout, if you are unable to post in the description area of your layout, please leave a comment on your layout in the gallery with this information. Please also tell us about the photo treatment you used in the description or first comment in the gallery.

**You may purchase additional Holiday Hoopla products to use on your layouts if you wish. However, you may not use the Clusters or the Word Art in the creation of pages for this contest.

Layouts are due 9/14 by 23:59 Studio time. We have a clock in the forum for you to use. Late layouts will not be counted for this round!

General Rules/Information (AKA: The Fine Print….)

* Each week will require you to complete 2 unique layouts. Please read each weeks instructions carefully and follow all instructions! Questions are welcome! Layouts that do not meet requirements will be excluded from votes.

* Please check the FAQ thread for other details. For example, templates and scrap lifting are NOT allowed for this contest. Nor are stock photos/photos found on the internet.

* This is a non-elimination contest, with weekly winners (all announced at the end of the month). You may compete 1 week or all 4 or anywhere in between!

* There will be a public poll available starting on Sunday - Monday each week (please note, this was incorrect in the week 1 thread). There will also be private voting done by theStudio design team. The scores from each will be combined to determine a winner.

* Polls will be created by username not by layout. Look at each layout by the contestants and choose your favorites when making your decisions. Each contestant will have 2 layouts for you to look at when making your decision.

* If the same contestant wins multiple weeks, the second place contestant will be offered a CT spot instead. We will be adding 4 new scrappers to the store CT!

* Each week a random contestant will win a fabulous prize! Additionally, any contestant participating all 4 weeks will receive a special gift, and 1 lucky participant will win a new EHD. All prize winners will be announced at the end of the month.

* Current Studio CT members may play along. We will open a separate gallery (it will be the same one for all 4 weeks) for current CT to post their layouts too. CT playing along will need to sign up each week, but will not be eligible for any of the prizes. This includes Studio Design team members.

Does the whole layout have to have a photo treatment to it or just somewhere in the layout?

I'm not sure what the NL freebie is/was - but, as long as it isn't a cluster, stacked paper, quick page, pre-designed word art etc. It's fine. If it's just papers and elements you can.

One photo on one layout must have a treatment!

A photo blended into a background counts, but an oversized photo as a background does not. So, use your tools to blend it in, make the photo part of the paper or textured does.

There are 70+ people who just got the coupon code - plus prizes for week 1 in other challenges, the server is slow when so many people are downloading at once! Be patient, it should work soon!
