Default Rules



Challenges are issued within the VSN Forum.

VSN Coordinators will have a Master Challenge thread listed for you to view all the challenges in a central location. Additionally, hostesses will repeat the challenge info within their own challenge chat thread. Challenges will be posted every hour to allow 15 minutes for uploading, cleaning up, snacking and anything else you need to do.

Hostesses will provide attachments or links to sample cards for each of their challenges.

Each player must complete his or her challenge submission within 45 minutes. This is on the honor system so please play fair!

No double-duty entries are allowed. This means you cannot submit one card to more than one challenge. If you choose to combine challenges on a card, you may submit the card to only one challenge.

Only one entry per person allowed per challenge.

If you are unable to complete a challenge while VSN is happening, you are welcome to complete it after VSN is over – just don’t spend longer than the 45 minute time limit on the challenge. If you want to be considered for the honor gallery, be sure to follow the uploading rules for deadlines. Cards must be uploaded by 3 PM EST on Sunday, September 9. Hostesses will not consider cards uploaded after the upload deadline.

Participants do not need to complete all of the challenges to play.

There is no entry fee to participate.

There are no vendor restrictions! You can use products made by any company, this is not just a "Stampin' Up!" event.

Uploading Keywords are important!!!

All entries must have SEP07VSN_ in the keywords. This is how the hostesses will find all the entries for their challenge. Example "SEP07VSNA” or “SEP07VSNQ” Please use all caps when entering in your keyword. If you are entering more than one keyword, please be sure to separate them by commas. You can also "copy & paste" the keyword right from the hostess thread into your gallery submission. It helps to have 2 or 3 windows or tabs open during VSN!

ALL VSN entries from the Tailgate Party on Friday, and the Main Event on Saturday must be uploaded by 3PM ET on Sunday, September 9, 2007.

Cards should be uploaded into the appropriate gallery. Uploads have automatic approval during VSN, and so the moderators aren’t checking to see that you are uploading into the right gallery. Please select the proper gallery. If you are using a specific stamp set, upload to that gallery. If you are doing a technique, upload to the technique gallery.

If you have questions about what gallery to upload to, feel free to ask a coordinator or the hostess of your challenge.

Here is some great info if you need help uploading.

Honor Gallery

Hostesses will review the submissions for their challenge and will identify approximately 5 cards they determine to be superb. Those cards receiving this nomination will be moved into a special VSN honor gallery, where they will remain on display. The SEP07VSN honor gallery is being titled: The Leaf pile

There will not be a "Viewers Choice" category for cards with the most comments.

All hostesses will have from 4pm ET on Sunday (9/9) until 8pm ET on Tuesday (9/11) to complete their review of submissions. Hostesses will then notify the coordinators of their nominations.

Honor gallery entries will be announced on Wednesday September 12 at 7pm ET.

Participants are eligible to be nominated into the honor gallery for more than one challenge.

For the September VSN, the coordinators and the hostesses will not be eligible for challenge review. However, the coordinators will select one card from each hostess for inclusion in the honor gallery.
