PDW announced a new system for our forum challenges Begining Jan 1 , 2012. That's been a while ago, so I figured I should update the info for any newbies to the challenges, or anyone wondering! We will have our regular Monthly Challenges and Variety Pack Challenges every month. The Variety Pack Challenges will change bi-monthly, so we can excite your creativity and get you thinking out side of the box....ranging from scraplift that stunning gallery layout, no pictures allowed, lyrical to wild element challenges. Each designed to get you thinking and playing. All challenges are worth 1 PDW Wrapper (basically 1 point). Each layout that is completed and posted in the correct challenge thread and gallery will be valued at One Wrapper. A Bonus Wrapper will be given if 100% PDW designer product is used to complete the challenge. That means layouts do not necessarily have to contain PDW product, but you will want the Bonus Wrapper trust me.....All Wrapper points will need to be tracked in our It's A Wrap Challenge Tracking thread so that your Wrapper points can be checked and verified and you will get your Gift Certificate for collecting the amount needed. If you are having trouble posting a linked page, please see this thread. For every 20 Wrappers accumulated you will received a $5.00 gift certificate for the PDW store, to be used for PU items only. Those bonus points will add up! In your It's a Wrap Tracking thread, you will need to post a linked page to the gallery, Challenge description and your beginning to end point count. For each month you have a new post in your Annual thread...such as 2015 thread. Edit your post for that month with your pages and every month I will go through and make sure you will get your Gift Certificate when you've earned one! Failure to keep your thread updated will mean there will be a delay in receiving your wrappers and subsequent GC. Here is an example of your post: January 2015 Beginning Wrapper count : 0 Variety challenge 1: linked layout in gallery 1pt + bonus all PDW Variety challenge 2: linked layout in gallery 1pt Challenge 1: link to gallery layout 1pt + bonus all PDW Challenge 2: link to gallery layout 1 pt + bonus all PDW Challenge 3: link to gallery layout 1 pt + bonus all PDW (etc) Total for Jan: 9 pts. Word art, alphas for titles and templates will not count against the 100% total PDW products. But most of all... HAVE FUN!! Always feel free to ask any questions and a PDW Staff member will gladly help you out.
