    The Lilypad provides 8 challenges a month for you to participate in, and uses a percent system for your rewards; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a guest spot on the Lilypad Creative Team!

    Since we have 8 challenges total, this allows you to skip one challenge if it just doesn't suit your style and still be eligible for a guest polly spot. You can, of course, complete all 8 challenges if you want, but it won't increase your rewards for that month, other than you've completed an extra page!

    The first 7 challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the 8th challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day (first Friday of the Month). Challenge layouts must contain 75% TLP product (eligible product can be current or retired product from resident designers, or guest designer product that is currently in the TLP store). BYOC challenge layouts must have 90% current BYOC product from the current month's BYOC. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    All challenge layouts must be posted in the TLP gallery listing the product used for your pages, and must be completed by midnight eastern time on the last day of the month.

    You should post your challenge pages each month in the Challenge Layouts thread. There should only be one post per participant in this thread. After you post your first challenge, please edit that post to add each additional challenge page you complete. At the end of the month, this thread will be closed and you will be contacted with a coupon code for your discount. Only one post per person will be tallied, so please do not post multiple times in this thread. In order to make tallying easier, we also ask that this thread be used only for posting challenge pages; please do not comment on the pages in the layout thread, but feel free to go to the gallery to leave some love!

    Throughout the month, as I see people finishing the challenges, I will move your post to a "Finished Challenges" thread so I can tally the finishers throughout the entire month instead of just at the end. Please do not move your own post over when you've completed the challenges.

    Coupons are sent via conversation within 7-10 days after the challenges close.

    If anyone has any questions, please let us know!

    Will there be new categories in the gallery to upload to for Style and Photography Challenges?

    I just completed the Jan MOC for the first time! I know for that one that the products used had to be currently in the store. Is that the case for these challenges as well? Or can we use retired products for these? I have so many kits in my stash that I still need to use, but are retired!

    For the monthly challenges, you CAN use retired products from the resident designers

    Thanks, this is good to know. I think I have more retired stuff than current.

    Oooh more challenges to choose from. I like that it gives room for an opt out clause if I am really struggling with a challenge. I too am glad about being able to use product not in store as I have LOT from the new designers which haven't made it over here (not yet at least - I must keep checking to see if they sneak anything in other than new releases).

    I'm not sure which thread to post this question in, but I finished 7 challenges but my thread wasn't moved over to finished challenges thread. Is that because I didn't do all 8?

    If you finish all 8 before the end of the month I move them over at random times. After the end of the month I will move over anyone who finished 7 or 8. This is so you can complete all 8 if you want

    Hi @mrs2a50 I saw that I made a rookie mistake :blush I posted my completed LO's in the
    Finished February Challenge Layouts and not the February Challenge Layouts. Whoops, so sorry! Am I still eligible for the coupon or not? If not, no problem. I learned from this mistake anyhow haha. Ok, off to the March Challenges, whoop whoop! :byay

    You probably did post in the Challenge layouts thread, and I just moved them over when I saw you had completed them. You're good!
