Background Blitz

We're having some fun over at Cornish Heritage Farms...(The following was posted by Julia Staiton in the CHF forum today!)

At CHF we’re pretty excited about our backgrounders. So flexible, so fun, so many ways to use them…we just love them. We know you love them too! We’ve decided to have a little fun with them and have a week-long Backgrounder Blitz.

What’s that you ask?

The week before the next backgrounder release, we’re going to be focusing on innovative ways to use backgrounders and we’ll have daily challenges with designer samples. We’d love you to play along too!

Design some backgrounder projects and upload them to our CHF gallery. The more samples you upload the better, because it increases your chances of winning some backgrounder stamps.

Each day, two names will be randomly drawn from the Backgrounder Challenge submissions and each winner will receive a backgrounder stamp. Sound like fun?!

Now because we really want you to play along…we’re giving you some advance notice of the challenges. That way you can work around YOUR schedule. We know how busy life gets. It doesn’t really matter when you create your challenge designs…you can start now. Simply upload the challenge card or project to our gallery on that challenge date for a chance to win. The Backgrounder Blitz kicks off next Friday evening in the CHF Forums. Make sure you stop by for a chance to win then as well.

Challenges start on Saturday April 19, and follow through each day including Friday April 25, the release date for our new latest backgrounders. The list of challenges is below. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have on this thread. I hope you can join us!

This is a great idea! I don't usually do challenges, but since I love your backgrounders -- I was just organizing mine last night, giving them a new home taking inventory -- maybe I will give these challenges a go. I am so intimidated by all of the talent, that I never submit. Thanks for giving us a heads up.
