SCRAPBURST CHALLENGE RULES
JANUARY 2014 SCRAPBURSTS
The ScrapBursts are a Spontaneous Challenge created by Scrapville to extend your creativity and push your learning boundaries.  There is no rhyme or reason as to when they will run, but when they do we hope you will find an inspiration from each challenge topic that encourages you to enter, and have fun doing it!
This is where you'll start....

**You can only have one entry in each Challenge (4 x ScrapBursts (layouts), 4 x CardBursts (cards))
The entry must be your own work, and created specifically for the ScrapBursts.
The entry must meet all the requirements of each Challenge to qualify.
You may add Techniques to your Challenges such as: 
  • inking 
  • painting/texture
  • misting/masking
  • stamping
  • stitching/sewing 
  • die cutting 
  • embossing
  • distressing
  • handmade
Please assume that all Card Bursts must have a "Sentiment", whether stated or not.
Please assume that all ScrapBursts must have a "Title", whether stated or not.
Please link any entries you share back to Scrapville.
ALL ScrapBurst and Card Burst Challenge Winners will receive a Prize Pack.

MONTHLY SKETCH CHALLENGES 
Updated August 2013

EXCEPTIONS
Scrapville prefers you use "retail products" in support of receiving prizes from our Challenges.
You may enter the Layout Sketch or the Card Sketch or both.

DATES

The Monthly Sketch Challenges run from the 1st of each month to Midnight (or Pumpkin Time!!) on the last day of that month.  

You can upload your challenges to the Linky with a direct link to your Challenge Post on your Blog.

If you don't have a blog then email your entry to scrapville@iinet.net.au and we will pop it up on the blog for you, or drop your entry into Scrapville.
If the Blinky has not been added to the challenge, please email the entry to the above email.

CATEGORY
There are two Sketch Challenges each month, a Layout and a Card.  
You may enter either Sketch Challenge once only to be eligible for the challenge.
Considering the sketch is a single page, only single layouts will be considered.

CONTENTS

It is encouraged that products used from your stash for the challenges support retail lines.
Your Sketch entry may be rotated or flipped, and page elements may be alternated from a feminine look to a masculine look (ie: swap a flower for a wheel/button/flag etc...) if you choose. 


As a general rule you may use techniques on your projects such as stitching, stamping, inking, painting, misting, sanding, dry embossing, distressing or die-cutting, according to the elements in the Sketch Design.  So long as the end product is recognizable as the Sketch and has the correct elements it will qualify for the Sketch Challenge.


CHALLENGE WINNERS
  • Please note that to be eligible for the Scrapville Challenges there must be a minimum or four (4) challenges entered. 
  • Each challenge has it's own criteria to meet, and we encourage the use of retail products that can be purchased from and supported by Scrapville.
  •  All challenges are voted for by the Scrapville Team. 
  • The Monthly Pack winners will WIN either the following months Monthly Pack, or a Prize Pack.  This will be specified at the time of the pack release. 
  • The Sketch Challenge Winners will win a Prize Pack.
  • The Announcements for the Challenge Winners will be made within 5 days of the end of the Challenge, providing numbers qualified for the challenge.
We hope you will join us for our Monthly Challenges, and enjoy the inspiration of our sample projects.
