Challenge #205 - Beaches

I have very fond and enduring memories of beaches! Beaches of all kinds! The beaches of my childhood were sandy, perfect for sandcastles and freshwater beaches! In my adult years there have been rocky beaches with tide pools on the ocean, white sandy tropical beaches, European beaches, but all are synonymous with relaxation and warmth to me! How about you? What was your favourite beach? This is the theme of our challenge today! I'm dying to see your designs! Just let me adjust my sunglasses and apply the sunscreen....

And how does our Design Team picture beaches?

















Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI205 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines.

Winners for Challenge #204 - Christmas in July

We're full of Christmas Spirit after two weeks of looking at our Christmas in July recipe challenge entries! They inspired us to start thinking of Christmas designs and we're looking forward to Holiday Catalogues! Anyway, we had many beauties to choose from so it was hard, but in the end these three cards were our choices, with a tie for Featured Artist:


Our Top Pick is: Shirley Gentry




The Design Team loved the sweet wintery scene Shirley created using all the elements of the recipe challenge. The white background with the pops of red, green and gold was very effective. We also loved the sense of depth created by the texture of the embossed trees behind the die cut snowbank! Beautiful card, Shirley.


Our first Featured Artist is: Heather Heroldt


We loved Heather's hand stamped and coloured background paper with the swirls and curls of the strings of Christmas lights, peppered with stars. They are so colourful and really convey the sparkle of Christmas! The Design Team found this to be a great design including all the elements in the recipe!



And our second Featured Artist is: Eunice Stoneman 



Eunice has created an awesome card that looks like a folded quilt fabric star! The Design Team loved how she layered stars of coordinating colours, patterns and textures. It almost creates an optical illusion! The narrow borders on her paper panels has allowed her to mix patterns with great success! A Christmassy masterpiece!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new theme challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.

Challenge #204 - Christmas in July

We've changed the name of this next type of challenge from collection challenge to recipe challenge, because it better describes what you are to do with it. The elements on the Challenge Banner are basically your recipe - all of them have to be included on your project! But how you go about doing that is where your creativity can flow!

This next challenge is a recipe challenge created by Design Team Member Jane Knudsen, who was obviously hearing the far off peal of Christmas bells and channeling her inner ELF, for a Christmas in July kind of Recipe Challenge:




Let's see how the Design Team managed to get their stars aligned:

















Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Use every element in the recipe, but the possibilities within those parameters are endless.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use AYSI#204 when uploading to a public gallery.
