Favourite Paper Brand (and why)

Welcome to As You Like It Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something 
which gives you a warm "inner glow" of pride, without lots of entry rules.


Usually we provide 2 contrasting options for you to choose from. 
Join us by using your favourite option in your creation. 

To be eligible to win our prize, or top-3 spot, 
you must explain why you've made your choice,
so we can understand why you like it so much!

eg, if the theme is 'favourite animal' and you decide on 'rabbits', tell us why.
eg, you love Thumper, the bunny from Bambi !

So get crafting and remember the main requirement in creating is 
to have fun and enjoy your crafting time!

The sponsor of this challenge is:

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

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

I've loved Nitwit Collections papers for years and they're my largest collection by a long way!  I used to love the printed paper pads but now they're only available as digis.

I've recently been loving digital papers from Romantica Arts.  I love their shabby, vintage feel.

I love my Stamperia papers, patterned and images all in one place..perfect.

I like several brands of paper but for this challenge I have chosen 1st Edition paper pack 'Summer Breeze'. I love the selection of double sided papers and embossed. The colours are pretty too.

I really love working with papers from Sunny studio stamps. They have great colours and lots of lovely patterns. I am not really a big fan of patterned paper, so when I use it, I want to have a simple pattern and the papers from Sunny studio are perfect.

I have chosen My Favorite Things as I love their small prints and they were ideal for these sneakers.

My Minds Eye were the first paper brand I ever purchased when I started papercrafting. Needless to say I have LOTS that really ought to be used. This one is So Sophie, Grateful. The colours are beautiful and, of course, perfectly co-ordinated too.

I love the Doodle Bug papers. The colours, the patterns and the embellishnents are lovely. 

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.
