Challenge #169 - Way Back to the Future

Think back! Think waaaayyyy back to when you first started papercrafting. Can you remember your first significant crafting tool, or a stamp set that made you fall in love with stamping? Do you still have it? What's the oldest tool or stamp set you still have in your stash? Would you dare to use it again? The Design Team, though challenged a bit, ended up really having a nostalgic good time with this "Fill In The Blank" Challenge. Fill in the blank with the words that work for you and then use them in your project! Enjoy your walk down memory lane!






The Design Team have been papercrafting for various lengths of time, so you will see different levels of retro in our projects:

Amy Jasper
Gently Falling stamp set



Lovely As A Tree stamp set, Original SU Spritzer



By the Seashore stamp set



Jane Knudsen
A Crimper



LeAnne Pugliese
A Tree for All Seasons stamp set and deckle-edged scissors



Tara Angus
One of her first stamp sets from her college days



Teresa Kline
It's a secret and you'll find it on her blog!
  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Fill in the blank with the words that are right for you and then create your project with those words in mind. Tell us, in your blog or on your site, what words you used.
  • 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 #AYSI169 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines tab.

Winners for Challenge #168 - A Flurry of Fun

And we had a flurry of amazing this time. The Design Team loved what you did with the sketch and we enjoyed reading your blog posts and celebrating your creativity! Here are our winners:


Our Top Pick is: dj




We are all ready for the tropics, because the coral and the palm trees really struck a chord with the Design Team! We loved the texture in dj's creation as well, and the CAS design and how well it worked with the Waterfront stamp set!


And our Featured Artist is: Joanne James

                                      
Joanne blew the Design Team away with her gorgeous layers of Valentine loveliness! And you have got to visit her blog, if you think this is amazing, to see the incredible matching treat box she concocted! The bold colours, the balanced design, the metallic shine and the perfect combination of die cut sentiments sends this card over the top! 

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