Challenge #229 - Adventure Awaits

It's Theme Week, and Design Team member, Jane, had a wonderful idea, based on the desire we all have to get away from the rhythm of every day life every once in a while and take a vacation - do something different, have an adventure, try a new thing! We've all been quite restricted lately and we can't just up and do what we want, but nothing can restrict our minds and creative imagination, so what if there were no restrictions right now? What would you do with your vacation time? And while we're at it, let's just imagine away those financial restrictions, too! Go at it, friends! Let your mind come up with your dream vacation!




What are our Design Team thinking about for their vacays:
















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 #AYSI229 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines.

Winners for Challenge #228 - Potpourri

Thanks to all of you who took the challenge and cooked up our potpourri recipe with your cards! We enjoyed all your efforts! You are all master chefs! Here are the winners:


Our Top Pick is: Jaydee




Jaydee created such a lovely, elegant design when she put all the ingredients together for the potpourri recipe! She was subtle about them, too! The paper scrap was a larger one, and so pretty in pink! The one work sentiment was properly presented in an ornate label, and the repeat image was a series of stamped splatters! Very clever, Jaydee, and a beautiful result!





Our Featured Artist is: Heather Heroldt





Heather's humorous design had a repeat image of half-eaten cookies, speaking of recipes! What you might not know, unless you read her blog is that the one word sentiment, "Cookies" continues inside the card, reading "because adulting is hard!" We've all been in that place, I know! The Design Team loved the composition and colour palette of Heather's card, with the neutrals mirroring the chocolate chip cookies and the pops of red bringing everything to life! Well done!




And we think you may want to check out the following Honorable Mentions on their sites:

Challenge #228 - Potpourri

Design Team member Amy has whipped up a new Recipe Challenge for you today and I know you're going to love it - there are so many possibilities! A little bit of this, and a little bit of that...kind of like potpourri! So that's what I called this challenge - Potpourri! There's paper scraps - hooray for a chance to use them up! There's pink - who doesn't like pink? There's a bow and a one word sentiment - those are easy. Finally, there is the requirement for repeat images! You can get really creative with this! You have to include all the elements in the recipe on your creation, but how you do that is up to you! Have fun!!



Let's see how the Design Team has combined their potpourri:















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#228 when uploading to a public gallery.

Winners for Challenge #227 - A Reel Choice

We learned two things from this challenge. First, stampers are too busy crafting to watch many movies or second, this challenge might have been a bit too challenging! But the entries we did get we amazing! They showed thought and creativity and we ended up finding this one of our favourite challenges of all! You really should give it a try, just for the fun of it! Here are the winners:


Our Top Pick is: Christy Stanford





Christy was SO up for this challenge with her favourite movie being "Princess Bride"! She even had a specific stamp set to go with the movie and chose all the colours to go with aspects of the movie! Her card was well-designed and well-constructed, but sheer enthusiasm won the day! It's inconceivable that she wouldn't get a shout-out!




Our Featured Artist is: Cindy Major





Cindy created a beautiful, vintage wedding look for her entry, which was representing the movie, "My Best Friend's Wedding"! She used gorgeously rich background papers, and did a fabulous job of colouring her blushing bride, but it was the attention to all the little vintage details that made the Design Team collectively want to give top honours to Cindy's creation!
