    Are only current designers from Gingerscraps allowed? I have a large stash from old designers that have either retired or are not longer selling here.

    This was asked and answered previously HERE

    Question: Can we use designers who sell here, but perhaps got the kit at another store and it's not in this store??
    Answer: Yes that is perfectly ok!

    But the challenge rules state

    You must use ALL 100% GingerScraps products when creating your Layout.

    Can you please clarify so that there is no confusion!

    Thanks!

    The layout must have TWO Color photos, they must be smaller then the B&W photo. The color photos should be surrounded by color papers and elements.

    Only 2, or at least 2?

    Okay, I have a question too. In the rules its mentioned that we have to use black&white elements surrounding the b&w photo, but I understand it right that there must be such elements but not ONLY. Right?!?

    The top post has been updated with all the Questions and Answers-

    Question: Do the products need to be current GS products?
    Answer: Yes the products must be 100% from a current GS Designer.

    Question: Can we RECOLOR products to be b&w if we don't have black/white elements or papers in our stash??
    Answer: Yes! Your welcome to recolor!

    Question: Can we use the daily downloads
    Answer: Yes! You can use Daily Downloads, Welcome Wagon, FB freebies, etc. As long as it if from a designer currently selling at GS now, you are allowed to use it.

    Question: Does gray count in black and white?
    Answer: Yes, gray is acceptable

    Question: Does it have to be B&W literally or can Sepia work?
    Answer: It has to be Black and White (and shades of gray).

    Question: Are only current designers from Gingerscraps allowed? I have a large stash from old designers that have either retired or are not longer selling here.
    Answer: Only current GS designers.

    Question: Can we use designers who sell here, but perhaps got the kit at another store and it's not in this store??
    Answer: Yes that is perfectly ok!

    Question: But the challenge rules state. You must use ALL 100% GingerScraps products when creating your Layout.
    Can you please clarify so that there is no confusion!
    Answer: The products you are using must be created by a current GS designer, it does not have to be sold in the GS shop.

    Question: The layout must have TWO Color photos, they must be smaller then the B&W photo. The color photos should be surrounded by color papers and elements. Only 2, or at least 2?
    Answer: Two Photos please

    Question: In the rules its mentioned that we have to use black&white elements surrounding the b&w photo, but I understand it right that there must be such elements but not ONLY. Right?!?
    Answer: Visually the B&W photo should be surrounded by B&W and the color surrounded by color. We want to achieve the look as if we are going from B&W into color.

    to achieve the look I want , can I blend my B&W photo into the gray background a bit? I can leave it as is, but artistically I like the look of it being softer

    Blended should work, and it sounds as though it would still follow the rules.

    Sorry to be here again, but Iīm a little bit confused by seeing the first layouts of this challenge.

    Surrounding the B&W photo you must have B&W elements, clusters, or frames, the remaining space of the layout must be all in color.
    That means, that I donīt have to use a b&w background at the place of the the b&w photography. Sorry for asking in that stupid way, but I wanna do it right ;)

    So, don't mean to be nit-picky, but I read the part of the rules where it says "the rest of the space on the LO must be in color..so if I have the LO split with a B&W section and a color section, should the BG behind the B&W photo with it's B&W elements be in color?

    AND

    If there is a white element in the color section, os that a no-no?
