AEI♥U Challenge #17–Tags!

Hello Again!!

We’re back today with the next AEI♥U Challenge, some lovely samples from our new challenge team, and a few changes to the format of the AEI♥U Challenge!

Let’s start with the changes – as of October 1st, the AEI♥U Challenge will be a once-a-month challenge in an effort to give you all more time to play along!  Each new challenge will go live on the 1st of every month.  They’ll close a few days before the end of that month, and winners will be calculated and announced the day before the next month’s challenge.  If you have any questions at all about the new challenge schedule, please don’t hesitate to let us know!

Challenge 17

Our October AEI♥U Challenge is Tags!  Fun, right?!!  You don’t have to use an Avery Elle tag to play along!  You simply have to use Avery Elle stamps and dies in some way in your design.  Let’s see how your new challenge team interpreted the challenge for your inspiration!


Heather Hoffman had a family emergency and was unable to participate with the challenge team this month.  But we look forward to her sharing her lovely talents with us next month!  Hurry back, Heather – we miss you!

Now it’s your turn to play!  Here are the rules and regulations!!

1.  Avery Elle stamps or our free digital stamps must be used in each entry.  To use our digital stamp, right click on the image and save it to your favorite photo editing program. You may re-size it slightly if you wish.  Please note that our free digital stamps are copyrighted and are for personal use only.  Please credit Avery Elle when using them.

2.  You may enter as many times as you wish, but they must be posted to the InLinkz tool separately.

3.  Please enter a NEW, not previously posted, project that fits the challenge theme.  Your project must fit the theme to be eligible to win.

4.  You can link your project to Flickr, Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery if you don’t have a blog.

5.  If you have a blog, please include the challenge graphic in your post, with a live link to the Avery Elle Challenge Blog.

6.  The winner will NOT be chosen randomly.  We will be looking for entries that include great use of color, design & creativity.

7.  You have until 12:01 AM (Pacific Time) on Saturday, October 25, 2014 to enter.  The winner and two runners up will be announced on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 6:00 AM (Pacific Time) on the Avery Elle Challenge Blog.

Stamp away, friends!
