We have a few simple rules and guidelines for our CHALLENGES & EVENTS!  
Please read them over to ensure your entry qualifies to win our prizes! 
  • Entries must involve rubber stamping in some way!  Please mention the stamping in your post, if it's not obvious we won't know and your entry will not be included in the DT voting!   
  • All stamp company stamps are welcome but if you only use LCD or CV stamps your entry will count as two which doubles your chance of winning the prize!   
  • Digital stamps may be used in conjunction with real rubber! 
  • Challenges start on the 1st Monday of every month and end on the 25th at 11:55 PST
  • Our Events start/end dates vary so follow our blog to ensure you don't miss them.
  • All kinds of projects are welcome, if you can stamp it you can enter it!
  • Link directly to your project post, not just your blog's home page.

  • If you don't have a blog you can play in our activities by doing the following:
  1. Upload your project to public photo sharing sites like Google Photos or Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda Facebook company Pages and include the name of our Challenge/Event with a link back to our blog post in your photo description!  ***Please note that you can not link up projects shared in closed Facebook Groups!
  2. Make sure your Photo privacy is set to "public" so Inlinkz can access it and our DT can view it.  Please don't share from sites that require membership.... if our DT needs to sign up to view and comment on your entry it will be disqualified!    
  3. Submit your entry in our link up using the URL address to your project.

  • Become a follower or sign up via email so you don't miss out on our fun activities😀
  • We'd really appreciate it if you'd leave us a comment after linking up, the LCDesigners work hard on our activities and deserve some love 😁
  • Our challenges are listed in the Paper Playful Challenge Registry 
  • If you experience any problems with our link ups please leave a comment on the post and we'll look into it.  You are also welcome to leave us a comment with a link to your project, especially if the link up is about to end, and we will add it for you!

     We have a prize tier that is based on the amount of entries received so the more you enter the better the prizes! 
    The LCDesigners pick their favourite entries and the winner is randomly selected from the DT favourites!

    5+ entries = one winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to spend at LCD/CV
    10+ entries = one winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend at LCD/CV
    All Challenge Winners get the Challenge Badge and Event Winners are awarded a unique badge to proudly display on your blogs too!
