Challenge Guidelines

1. Our challenges start on the first and third Tuesdays of each month and will close on Sunday of the second week. If there is a fifth Tuesday in the month, we will extend the challenge that began on the third Tuesday for one additional week, but still closing on a Sunday. Challenges will begin on the assigned Tuesday at 6:00 am and close on the assigned Sunday at 12:00 pm (noon). Every attempt will be made to announce the Top Three winners before each new Tuesday challenge opens.

2. We reserve the right to disqualify your project if it does not meet the challenge criteria.   

3. All challenges will use a sketch. You are free to change the orientation of the sketch by rotating or flipping the sketch or using its mirror image, and you may modify shapes using other shapes (ovals for squares, circles for triangles, etc.) as long as the basic sketch is visible in your project.

4. You are permitted to post up to FOUR entries per challenge, but each entry must be a new project. There is no back-linking to previous work unless specifically permitted in the challenge requirements. Please do not post more than one photograph per project to the challenge. If you create more than one card for the challenge, please post them separately. Only the project that is shown in the Inlinkz photo will be considered for the Top Three.

5. Link directly to your blog post and not your blog. PLEASE NOTE: Only DIRECT LINKS to your entry will be eligible for any prize or award. Include our sketch on your blog unless it is not permitted with your platform.  

6. When you post on Instagram tag us using @TryaSketchOnTuesday.

7. The Design Team makes every attempt to review your entry and to leave a comment on your blog. If you post using Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, SplitCoast Stampers, or other social media we may have limitations to commenting but you are still considered eligible for our Top Three provided your project meets all other criteria. 

8. There is no limit to combining our challenges with others. However, be sure you include the name of our challenge and a link back to our challenge blog when you post to your own blog or platform. This guideline must be followed or your entry will not be eligible for a prize or award.

9. The Top Three winners will each be awarded the Top Three Badges, which can be taken from our Blog Tab labeled "Badges". Please play fair and do not take a badge unless you win it. 
We will announce the "Top Three" in a separate post as promptly as possible after the close of a challenge. Every attempt will be made to announce the Top Three winners immediately before each new Tuesday challenge opens.

10. There may be an occasional prize for special events. When applicable, we will use to decide a winner. A special event winner must contact us within twenty calendar days to receive their prize or the prize will be forfeited. Contact us via email at

11. Keep it fun! Don't fret over the requirements and rules. Remember you are in the company of other crafters who are probably having similar thoughts.
