I'm not sure if this is the correct thread to post a question about the 50% rule but I thought I would start here. How much of a layout is a template considered to be? If a template and kit are used is it 50/50 or a different split? Or, if template, word art, and kit are used what ratio would that be. Due to being new to this forum, I don't have a ton of stuff from here yet so I'm mixing my stash a little until I'm able to pick up some more stuff but want to make sure I follow the guidelines too.
Thanks for the help!
Oooh, really good questions, Becki. I was wondering the same thing.
Also, it looks like I saw this question partly answered, but I still need clarification .... if a kit was purchased from a GS designer from a different store, it was said that it would count. But, what if THAT kit isn't in the store? I had a few of those last month where I didn't think it counted for points because that particular kit wasn't in the store, although the designer is here. So, I guess the question is does the kit have to be in the GS store, no matter where it was purchased, for it to count, OR can we use any kits by designers and have them count for challenges?
The answer is yes and yes
Products from GS designers always count, they can be from the GS shop , another shop they sell at, their blog, Facebook... Basically anywhere. As long as it's created by a GS designer you can use it on your challenge LOs
Here is a few examples of the % guidelines-
A full size kit (50-100%)
A template (40%)
1 mini kit (30-100%)
One paper pack (30%)
Element pack (40%)
1 Alpha (20%)
1 set of word art (10%)
I think that covers it, please let me know if you need any other clarification
ginger this is AWESOME info because i've never known either. would it be possible to make this info available on its own as a sticky for people to find????
All of it not just one part...and any other pertinent info which could also be added to later.
