***15/30 Main Thread (Links to Challenges Here)

Post by lissahope26 » Mon Jan 14, 2019 10:12 am

Hello Crafty Cherries!

15/30 on the 15th starts tomorrow!  Who's ready? Chime in and let us know if you will be checking out the challenges.  I want this to be stress free and fun!  No pressure to complete all 15.  If you do decide to complete all 15, I will do a random drawing for two cherries to receive ACOT giftcards.  RAKS and/or giftcards will also be given out to random winners who make honorable mention.  With that being said, you still have a chance to grab something if you do not complete all 15. 

Please check this thread for link backs to all challenges.  I will also link this thread back to the January and February Main Challenge board.  Now, we have several cherries who volunteered to host.  I suggest you read each challenge and rules carefully because they will be different for each hostess. 

Challenge schedule will be as follows:
Tuesday Jan 15-Traveler's Shape Challenge

Thurs Jan 17-Use It Up Challenge by Emmapaige

Saturday Jan 19-Card Challenge by Yankeegirl

Monday Jan 21-Beachlover's New Challenge

Wed Jan 23-PL Cards by Scrappinmom99

Friday Jan 25-Opposites Attract by HSBlair

Sun Jan 27-Scraplift Sunday

Tues Jan 29-Celebrate with MTCanuk

Thurs Jan 31-Incorporating Nonpaper Crafts Into Project by Sara (Due Feb 8)

Sat Feb 2-Sketchy Saturday

Mon Feb 4-Yankeegirl's Challenge

Wed Feb 6-Lame Duck by DNinMN

Fri Feb 8-Laugh and Get Rich Day by HSBlair

Sun Feb 10-You're My Person by Beachlover
Tues Feb 12- last day-Traveler's Choices

I'm hoping to have all wrapped up by February 28th and prizes announced on March 1st.  So who's excited about 15/30 on the 15th??

I'm in!

I had a question from previous years that I wanted to clarify. In previous years, you could do a project for a given day that didn't fit the challenge - and you still got credit towards the total of 15, but didn't get entered for that day's challenge if there was a prize.  So, my question is where do you put those pages that don't fit the days challenge? (Does this make sense/)

Also, are cards and other projects acceptable or only scrapbook layouts?

Those are some good questions.  I'm going to leave that ball in the court of the hostess.  The hostess for the day will make that decision on what is allowed and what is not allowed.

My concern on the first question is that some challenges are just not do-able by some people. I wouldn't want people to be precluded from completing the whole 15 because of a challenge requirement.

seems in the past that you could scrap anything towards your count....but to be eligible for that days prize you had to follow the rules.....
if I recall correctly...last time around I got all my 30 done BUT maybe only 5 or so fit exact requirements.....

I don’t have a problem with that. I think that will be fine to do.

I'm gearing up for it too. I've been cleaning my scrap area and working on a layout and kits all at the same time. I'm feeling a bit scattered and need to settle down. Sometimes the challenges & time limits help me just commit to one thing instead of trying to do ALL THE THINGS  on one layout LOL!  :greenwinkb:

And I'm hostessing one of the dates and I'm going to make my challenge be for layouts, cards, projects, whatever inspires you. Not sure what my challenge will be yet but it will be open to all formats!
Happy Scrapping!

So, are these challenges separate from our regular challenges or can do either. I never did the 30/30 so guess I'm not clear on what we d o other than trying to do 15 in 30 days. Are they also timed and slotted for that particular day of each one.  :?

Debbie:  as one of the hosts, I do know that these challenges are separate from the regular ACOT monthly challenges.  They will post every other day starting tomorrow, for 15 days, and you can do as few or as many as you wish.  There are no time issues---you can do all 15 challenges at any time( once they post) as long as they are submitted by the specified due date.  Check each day's post for specific guidelines, as the due dates might be different.  Most of us will likely be giving you until Feb. 28th to finish up. 
You can also do as many of the regular monthly challenges as you wish.  Some of these monthly challenges allow combining, but some of the 15/30 challenges may not allow combining.  So again, check each 15/30 post for specific rules.

Hope this helps!

I am going to give this a try. I haven’t been scrapping much lately. Maybe these challenges will provide the incentive I need.
