Challenge #184 - Back to Basics

In my part of the world, it was Back to School week, so this theme challenge is perfect timing here, but where ever you are at in terms of the school year, we can all get Back to Basics in our crafting! What does that mean? Well, we're talking real basics: paper, stamps, inks, maybe a touch of ribbon, scissors and paper trimmer - the bare minimum. What can you do with that? Let's see what you do when you get back to your roots!



See the Design Team tackle the basics:




















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 #AYSI178 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines.

Winners for Challenge #183 - Queues

What a great lineup of talent we had in our gallery last week! (See what I did there?) You had so many different images strung out across your cards! And again we struggled with who to place in  Winners' Row! But this week it looks like the Southern Hemisphere wins out with summer images for their upcoming warm season. Take a look:

Our Top Pick is: Colleen Begley




Colleen's rainbow of beach huts on the sea textured background was a perfect way to use this sketch. We loved the way the little cottages picked up the colour design of the paper behind them and the little shore bird wading in the shallows is such an appropriate embellishment to the sentiment. Great queue, Colleen!





And our Featured Artist is: JoMo



                                                            
How clever is this queue of Christmas lights with colours giving a nod to the Southern Hemisphere celebrating the holiday in the summer months? The Design Team loved how the sentiment ties in that theme, but especially the clean, crisp look of the card and the bit of bling from the tinsel ribbon that adorns it. The precision of the placing of the lights creates perfectly coordinated shadows and glow lines around each light. This creation really deserves the limelight! 

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 #183 - Queues

I'm not a particularly patient person, so long line ups, or queues, as they are known in some countries, are very trying for me. Experts have estimated that the average person spends between 6 months to 2 years of his or her whole life waiting in lines of some kind. Luckily, you don't have to wait in line to enter our challenge this week! You just need to create a card with a line or row of some objects in it! Then click on the linky tool and you're away to the races! Here's the sketch from Amanda:



And here's the line up of creations from our Design Team:
