This fortnight's challenge theme is a very rare-for-us "Anything Goes".

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:


Anne
Using Earlie Hedgehog Butterfly and elements/papers from Horace & Boo









My current crafting obsession is making Junk Journals.  
This one was created from packing paper.






Since re-learning to crochet last March, I have slowly been building up the courage to try amigurumi (small critters) and finally I settled on this pattern from MisAdventures of Alice for a Squidlet Ⓒ to attempt.  The first (pink) was a challenge but they have gotten easier and now they number 6 (Squidlet 006 is away on a secret spying mission and was therefore unavailable for the family photo).  My favourites are the chubby (out of focus, sorry) white one, and the little multi-colour chap just above his head.








So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.

This fortnight's challenge theme is a simple one.
We have lots of Thank You messages to send after Christmas, 
so we want you to showcase a Thank You project of your choice.
There's no 'favourite' to mention this week, just be free to create!

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:








I was dragged up proper and taught that saying thank you costs nothing but means so much.  I still believe that to be true.




I have made a series of small thank you cards. I like to give that with a small gift, it's gives an extra personal touch.





So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Happy Holidays to all our As You Like It friends! Thank you so much for making 2019 such a creative year. We are looking forward to seeing all the wonderful projects you come up with in 2020!  We will be taking a short holiday break and will be ringing in the New Year with a new challenge on January 2.


This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Die(& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.


Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:


Anne

I love dies and use them on all my cards. I like dies which create a card and don't need anything else, I batch made my Christmas cards using this lovely Sizzix die and just added some paper piecing for a bit of colour




I love stitched dies and the XXL Crealies ones in particularly are great because they're such a great size compared to other nesting die sets.  The card stand has also become a firm favourite because it creates something different to a standard fold without any manual cutting and folding.  I find the two dies work really well together because the card stand can support a larger card-base shape.





I love dies, especially tags dies however, lately I have developed a real liking for the stitched background dies.  They add so much interest to a cardstock background and are just so fun!




Elaine
I have lots of favourite dies. Two of them are on this card. First is the stitched square frame and second the stags head. The stitched frames are so versatile and add a little extra detail to a plain square, The stags head I have used for Christmas but is also great for male birthday cards.


My most favourite dies are the basic shapes, that have stitched edges. I love my Crealies dies because they have great sets, with many dies. I love how large the largest die from the set is. I very often use them on my cards.




I do love this Christmas Tree window die.  It is great for a quick and easy card without any colouring involved.


I am rather partial to my Presscut Stepper Die. It certainly cuts down on the measuring and cutting!!



I cannot resist a word die, especially if it coordinates with a set of stamp sentiments




Like Squirrel I also can´t resist word/letter dies. They are so versatile and easy to use and in many different ways.



So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
