Challenge #211 - A Theme as Lovely as a Tree

Where I live there have been many assaults recently on our most precious resource, trees! Fires, disease, clear cutting, encroaching civilization have all caused us to lose many more trees than we were willing to part with, and when you see them get more scarce it makes you appreciate them all the more. So our theme this time is dedicated to trees in all their glory - spring, fall or anytime!



What kind of trees come to mind for our Design Team?
















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 #AYSI211 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines.

Winners for Challenge #210 - Recipe for Quick Healing

You know the saying, "If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen!"? Well, some of you were not only in our kitchen for our Recipe Challenge, #210, but you told us to "Bring it on!" by the calibre of your card making! You certainly turned up the heat on the Design Team, as they had to choose winners, but in the end, too many cooks DID NOT spoil the broth, and we have our Top Pick and Featured Artist to share with you below:


Our Top Pick is: Vicky Hayes


The Design Team really liked the crisp, clean look of Vicky's get well card along with her choice of colours. Who would feel better, receiving a cheery card like this one?? Everything, the layout, the die cuts, the colours, the flowers, even details like the black staples work together in Vicky's card to say clean, healthy and cheerful! 



Our first Featured Artist is: Kathy Schweinfurth


Kathy's fall inspired get well card had so many elements of yummy excellence to take note of! There was the intricate die cut trellis background, the stitched textured tag, the beautifully coloured leaves and the way they were arranged, extending beyond the dimensions of the card base and all the vibrant fall colours! Kathy cooked up a real feast for the eyes this week! Well done!                                                                                                        
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 #210 - Recipe for Quick Healing

The next type of challenge in our rotation of challenges is a recipe challenge, which involves a number of design elements given to you on the Challenge Banner, all of which must be included in the design of your project. How they are arranged, what size and colour they are, even how you perceive each element is up to you, as long as we can recognize that they are included. Some can be combined. See how creative you can be within the confines we have set!

This next recipe challenge was cooked up by Chef and Design Team Member LeAnne Pugliese, and it's a recipe for Quick Healing, because nothing helps you heal like knowing that someone else cares! Well, that and chicken soup....




Let's see what the Design Team's versions of chicken soup for quick healing look like:















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#210 when uploading to a public gallery.

Winners for Challenge #209 - Lean On Me

Well, you have spoken, and we now know your favourites in terms of what punches and dies are your "go tos" and the overwhelming majority seems to be stitched shapes of some kind! It's fun to find out these little tidbits of information about each other! It's not fun trying to choose our winners, so the Design Team had to lean heavily on each other to come to a decision! LOL And here they are:


Our Top Pick is: Christi M.




The word for the day is texture, as Christi's project is full of it, from the fur on the buck to the background DSP! This rich and quirky design is so delightful with the bowtie on the buck matching the woodgrain background and the very cool-shaped plaque the deer head is mounted on, that the Design Team fell in love almost immediately!



Our first Featured Artist is: Cindy Major


Cindy's adorable mad scientist has been crafted and coloured with such care and creativity that she just seems to jump off the page at you! We loved the details of the potions and how the bubbles were echoed in the background papers and embellishements! And these amazing results were achieved through very skillful use of pencil crayons!! Amazing work, Cindy!                                                                                                         
Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new Recipe challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
