Challenge Instructions

Our Design Team will each be taking it turns to host the themes and will be posting the design team's work here to get the theme going.  We will be using stamps that are available to buy from The Stamp Man.  You can use any design for your entry.

Future Themes
We are doing something a little different, people have mentioned that they don't have time to join challenges, well with ours you will have plenty of notice of our future themes so you can plan well ahead to join in which will make them more relaxed and less stressful.  You can plan them to suit your available crafting time, but you will need to wait until the relevant themes' start dates to post them.

Posting your entry
Your entry must be your own work.  Please place your post link and name with Inlinkz under the relevant theme.  After you have listed your link to your challenge entry with us, you are welcome to enter it into other challenges. Please link to your challenge entry not your blog as this will enable us to find your card easily.  To link to your challenge post NOT your blog link, first prepare your post, click on preview, this will give the link to the actual post in your browser bar, copy this into Inlinkz.  Also please include a link to our challenge on your blog post.

Our design team will be picking our Top 5 entries for each theme.  There will be a top entry for each theme, the winner will receive £10 of Stamp Man Gift Vouchers along with a blinkie to say they won the top prize, we will contact the prizewinner via their blog.  The remaining top 4 will receive a blinkie to say they reached our Top 5.  Entries that do not comply with our challenge rules will not be elible for the prize.

Please spread the word
We'd love and appreciate it if you could spread the word about our new challenges on your blog sidebars.  Please copy the code below the blinkie at the top right hand side of the sidebar for this, thanks in advance:)

Gold Star Award Blinkie
If you use any Aspects of Design stamps in your challenge entries, please take a Gold Star Award blinkie with our thanks for using our stamps!  You don't have to be in the top 5 to take the award.
