View Full Version : Challenge Question and GS Shout Out

11-16-2012, 08:23 PM
I'll start with my question first. So since I'm pathetically broke at the moment I'm getting some of the freebies so I can do some challenges and NOT just post LO's hehe

I know they require 50% of GS products. BUT some sites r different...so...does a template count as 50%??? just checking as i am an insufferable rule follower :) (this is a continuation of my convo with missi in another thread but didn't want to hi jack it...thanks missi)

and my shout out...goes to GS in general. I get more comments on my LO's here than ANY other gallery... even though i don't participate in the site...i have even got several baker's best and a LOTW! My hats off and thank you so very much!!! its very hard on me to participate in more than one site as i'm a monogamous scrapper ;) (ok only cuz i have dyslexia and am ADHD and can't keep up) but gonna try as i'm looking for a friendly, welcoming, and active forum!

again thank u all for being so wonderful when i have had questions or needed something :)

Yay! Glad you are liking it here! I don't have an answer to your question but I just wanted to say I think GS is the friendliest place on the planet.

11-16-2012, 09:23 PM
Yep, Suzanne said it right. GS is the nicest of them all, happy you're enjoying it here!
Already came across some of your lovely LO's :)

Someone will pop over on your question soon as I don't know the exact rules either.

I believe a template counts for 40%, but I could be wrong! Definitely be sure to snag the freebies from the welcome wagon thread, the GS Facebook and the daily downloads. The welcome wagon alone will give you PLENTY of stuff to play with and make your 50% for challenges! :)

11-16-2012, 11:53 PM
You know, I'm not 100% sure on that either! Let me check with Ginger and Missi and see if they know!

Gingerscraps is seriously one of the best places to be, and I'm not just saying that as an admin. This was my first official home, and it's been that for, oh goodness me, at least 3 years now :O I think it's 4 this coming March :D

Holy crap, has it really been that long?

11-17-2012, 12:01 AM
Well first off ..... Blush... Awe thanks :) love hearing that your enjoying it here!!

For your question,
I don't known if we have ever answered this... But my answer is a template would be 30% of the LO.
Luckily there are lots of ways to get goodies here, and once you do challenges you can earn even more goodies!
Maybe you can snag a few things on our upcoming Black Friday sales ;)
We have some really great sales planned!!

Ginger will weigh in with exacts, but a template counts as 30% (I do believe). Now remember that until you get your GS supply built up you can do ANY of the challenges with ANYTHING, they just have to be 50% GS stuff to count towards your cookie jar! And like I said in the you broke it thread ( :) ) there are the welcome wagon threads, blogs, facebooks and Daily Downloiad on the GS blog to get you started.

And yes, our goal is to be and stay the friendliest place in Digiland! Feel free to ask all the questions you want, I don't bite! (Usually)

11-17-2012, 12:06 AM
See, Ginger answered while I was typing!!

11-17-2012, 12:15 AM
honestly...i would think that was right for templates...just some places count it as 50% and while i don't agree not my site not my choice :) i had a great home i was at and it closed :( so i've just been wandering the digi desert for some time now. while i love to scrap i can do that without a site, gallery or store as i have enuff kits to last a pigmy village for a lifetime!!! (hope i did not offend any pigmy's ;) ) i want a HOME. got some kits from the welcome wagon and getting ready to upload my first GS LO!! (and do a challenge) while i love being a CT...sometimes i really miss just creating a LO and changing a kit around to fit MY needs and not a designers. thanks so much and i'll be doing more :)

They're just OTC, but I'll share, if you live close enough. These suckers are hard to find!

yep i'm usually medicated when i'm writing...and at nite i get to add ambien so no telling what i will say LOL

11-17-2012, 01:38 AM
Oh yuck! I've gotten lucky. Most of mine are sinus related, and usually one dose will help.
Now that the meds that work are back in stock, it's really helping :D

Our Sugar Cookies are so great at commenting, I agree! Better than any other site I've been to. I remember building up my stash slowly and reusing the same kits over and over... but that's the great thing about digital!

11-17-2012, 02:57 PM
I'm so glad that you are liking GingerScraps. I love it here! :) There is also the Bake Sale the first 5 days (I think) of the month with some awesome sales. GingerScraps always seems to have amazing sales! :)

11-17-2012, 06:11 PM
i'm looking forward to the bake sale as i can afford a few things :)

11-17-2012, 09:56 PM
A wee bit late to the game, I guess...but welcome, Jacque! :)

11-17-2012, 10:04 PM
never too late joylynn...how ya been? wish your older kits were in the store then i'd have a ton :)

11-17-2012, 10:07 PM
Hahaha, sorry! (but some of those older kits were QC nightmares! I've learned so much!) :) I will agree with the other ladies, GingerScraps is filled with some incredibly sweet ladies. You've picked a good spot to plant some roots in! :)

11-17-2012, 11:43 PM
We are happy you are here and enjoying the site. It's always difficult to a site close to your heart. Another place to check for freebies are our designers FB . Check like and often there is a little surprise they graciously share.

11-18-2012, 02:52 PM
:hiHi Jacque! Glad you found GS! You should definitely chat with Lydia! She's a "sweet" lady! :)

11-19-2012, 02:05 PM
Hi Jacque! I'm late as well - been spending some more time out in my deerstand (and even tho I occassionally bring my laptop - shhhh - theres not enough signal to even think about tethering to my laptop! LOL)

Glad you're liking it here at GS - I love it and it's truly the friendliest - in the gallery & the forum!!
