Seriously Creative Rules

Rules are made to be broken... but not these ones (heehee)! We've tried to keep them simple for ya- you'll find them on the right side of the blog. Here's some extra details in case you have any questions.

Create something new! Let the current challenge inspire you to create a project, don't just enter any creations you've done recently that fit the challenge.

Please don't back-link to projects you made last month (or last week, or last year). We're giving you at least 3 weeks to participate in each challenge & we hope you'll play along!

Focus on products that are available at your LSS (local scrapbook/stamp store). Please don't use products for your focal point that are only available to online stores or home parties.

Creative Accents is an independent, small town store and we want to encourage you to support your local stores! If you're wondering if a product is available at a local store, check their website- if they list retailer's, that's a good sign ;) We don't mind if you didn't buy it from us... maybe your project will inspire us to bring in a brand new product line to our store!

3. Keep it simple.
Not your project- you can go all out on that :), but please don't get too carried away combining a bunch of challenges together at once. (We'd appreciate it if you keep it to a maximum of 5.)

We may feel it is necessary to remove your entry from the challenge if you blatantly disregard the rules... but we hope it won't come to that ;) Happy CREATING!
