Welcome to the Ugly Paper Kit Challenge...


April 2014 Kit consists of:

April Ugly Paper Kit By DaNel Hicks

Guidelines:

All the cardstock paper must be used and shown on the layout. Then any embellies you use will add up points.

The more outrageous and off color or odd item the more points it will be worth.

Voting will now be done differently. We will add up the points and the one with the most points will get $3.50 off the next months kit (so FREE postage).

We will still do a vote and the one with the best layout (voted upon by others) will still win a FREE month of challenge.

Since the voting is done at the beginning of the month following the challenge your Free month will be any month after that.




This kit consists of:

This kit has 3 sheets of paper. (All papers MUST be used)

Once piece is double sided (the one with the domino's and the other green one).
One blue zebra pattern one and One black solid cardstock

The following get a point value:

There is a package of 5 metal charms, - 10 points per charm
2 blue ribbons, - 5 points per ribbon
4 blue and white flowers, - 5 points per flower
4 bling beads, - 10 points per bling bead
1 package of lettering, - 1 point per letter
1 black cardstock flourish, - 10 points
1 black cardstock tag, - 5 points
a green cardstock arrow, - 5 points
a black cardstock arrow, - 5 points
a black cardstock open arrow, - 5 points
3 beige buttons, - 3 points per button
One orange cardstock circle, - 25 points

This kit will cost $10 which includes shipping.




The object of this challenge is to make your mind work, thinking Outside the Box and using papers that you thought you would never use.


To sign up, Please PM me your name, screenname and mailing address and you will be entered.

You then mail or Paypal $10.00 to DaNel Hicks.

[email protected] (mailing address can be given in a PM)

You will have the month of the challenge to complete your layout. I will mail out kits on Monday's. This is the only dedicated day of the week that I can get out. If I go out on an additional day I will also mail the kit on those days. (Update. My husband volunteered to go to the post office on his lunch break so kits can go out more often)

You can sign up at any time during the month as long as there is enough time to mail you the kit and for you to complete it.

Rules:
- Must use only use the items supplied to you.
- Must allow public embedding.
- No digital layouts due to the papers being used.
- Layouts must be uploaded here by the last day of the month at midnight to qualify for the votes.
- One layout per person please.
- You may use inks, distressing, mists and sprays, punches and so forth.

The winner of each month will NOT have to pay to participate in the next month.

Any questions please don't hesitate to ask. I hope I made this clear enough.

Since this is a new challenge we are getting suggestions and this challenge is going to grow into a great challenge. Thanks to everyone that that makes suggestions.

Guidelines:

All the cardstock paper must be used and shown on the layout. Then any embellies you use will add up points.

The more outrageous and off color or odd item the more points it will be worth.

Voting will now be done differently. We will add up the points and the one with the most points will get $3.50 off the next months kit (so FREE postage).

We will still do a vote and the one with the best layout (voted upon by others) will still win a FREE month of challenge.

Since the voting is done at the beginning of the month following the challenge your Free month will be any month after that.

Well, it makes things a little more fun. So when it was suggested (not exactly that way) I worked it out to be that way.

I figured the harder to use embellishments would be worth more points.

We can try this out a month or two and if needed change things up again.

Tayra. You won March's layout for the Ugly Kit. So you will get a free kit this month since you want to play and haven't sent money yet.

Oh yes I did add them up and the total was 157. Although I should go over them again, because my math skills even simple addition are weak.

I'm confused on the point calculation- is it 1 for every item including pp??? I'm sorry but I'm just not getting that

I put points for each type of item on the first post so that the harder to use items get you more points. (for example, that orange circle got you more points since the main colors were blue)

Here is my page- I used everything- I have just a bit of pp left & a few inches of each ribbon & then a lot of the letters. I counted up 193 points. To make the orange circle blend in better, I spritzed it with some cocoa alcohol ink

There is a 3 way tie.

So please send me 1 vote for a layout not your own and mine does NOT count.

If the other two players want to add up the points I will determine who gets $3.50 off their next kit.

Thanks
