    Default Do GS Products "Expire" ?

    I hope this is the right place to post my question.

    I had collected some older GingerScraps products a couple years ago, and some of them are no longer currently GS products - in fact, I think at least one of the designers is no longer at GS at all.

    My question is, do these older products in my GS stash still count towards the "50% must be GS Products" part of the challenges, since they were collected from GS originally, or do I need to figure out which of my products have "expired," and use only products that are currently available through GS?

    Thank you for any help!

    HI there!! From what I understand, you can only use products from designers that are currently at Gingerscraps.
    BUT, you may use their retired products.

    For example, Connie Prince retires products regularly, but it's still okay to use them.

    Hope this helps

    Yeap, that's my understanding too, but Missi or Ginger should be able to clarify better, when they see this thread.

    Thank you both! I'll keep an eye out for an "official" answer from Missi or Ginger but for now I'll roll with this one.

    ^^^ All are correct! As long as the designer is still at GS it is ok to use. if the designer is retired or just no longer with the store it does not count.

    Yes, this is a big help to have this clarified! Now, as long as I can still find the designer at GS, I won't have to worry about whether it's still a current product.

    Okay, I found myself with another nit-picky question! As I was going through my stash today, I noticed that I have several kits or pieces from current GS designers but I hadn't bothered to mark them as GS products (newbie mistake!) so I don't know if they came directly from GS or not - they might be blog or Facebook freebies etc. Are those sort of "extra" products by GS designers fair game or do we have to know for sure that the products came to us via GS?

    It doesn't matter how you got them - FB Freebie, Blog, another store. As long as the designer is current at GS, you may use them for challenge layouts.
