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

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


It's got to be cute and girlie for me. I love pretty papers, pinks, and embellishments, as well as cute images, none of which tend to lend themselves to masculine cards!  







I love making girly cards, but this little guy stole my heart.  I love making guy cards just to keep in practice and have a few on hand for the few guys I give cards to.

I do like to make girly cards because I can use pretty papers and sparkly gems


I love making cards for girls, because I love everything cute and girlie.  I am a big pink lover and that is a very perfect colour for girlie cards. 


I prefer to make girlie cards as you can make them much prettier and there is a wider choice of embellishments if you need them.



Definitely a girl card from me. So much great stash to choose from when it comes to making cards for the fairer sex!! Male cards are just so difficult!!





I actually like making boy cards, they suit my CAS style quite well, but the majority of my makes are for the ladies, including this one that I made for my wonderful mum who had her 81st birthday this week



Wilma
For me it is girl. As many of us I also have a lot of cute and girly papers and embellishment in my stash. And I do find male/boy cards difficult. 





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.

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

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


Although my main addiction hobby is paper-crafting, I tried my hand at jewellery making several years ago and decided to dig out my old stash again for this challenge. I had previously mainly made earrings but decided to attempt some double stranded bracelets. They're very therapeutic to create and make lovely gifts.  There are more photos on my blog if you're interested in seeing a bit more!









I enjoy crafting of all kinds.  I can't seem to sit still, I'm always happiest when I am making something, anything.  I like giving what I make to my family and friends, it's like giving them a little piece of my heart.





Elaine

I love making boxes. I think they make a small gift extra special. 



I really love making boxes, because they are the perfect personal gift. I love that you can give it the perfect size for the gift your are giving and it makes giving a present extra special. 





Lynne

Cross stitch was my favourite hobby before card making took over.  I still do a little bit now and then as it's something I can do while watching tv and I find it relaxing.


I have put away the paper pads this time and cross stitched a leaving gift for a work colleague. My cardmaking came about from cross stitching greetings cards and I still dip in and out when the desire takes over.




It might have had something to do with the fact that I rather over-ordered some
keyring blanks ..... but I made a keyring for a friend's son who is space mad, for a key
for his own space





I like to wrap presents in boxes or bags, I think it makes a present more special.
For my friends I made a bag with a scent bag, candle and a card. 




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.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Black & White + your favourite 1 other colour (& why it's your favourite).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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


For someone who likes to match the colours of any embellishments (ribbons, pearls, papers, flowers etc) whenever I add them, I found this fortnight's challenge a little difficult.  Now, I'm not usually a 'yellow' person, but when tasked with the only other colours being black and white I wanted my image to really stand out, so I chose a golden yellow colour to give some brightness to my project.





I love black and white along with many colors, so this is another hard one.  I went with a patina color (mainly because I really wanted to use this new embossing powder).  I love the way it works with the black and white!




Elaine


I have chosen B & W with red. I like the strong combination, it is always very striking. You don't need to use too much colour for a balanced card.



I love black and white together with the colour that is called Larissa pink by Annette ...lol. I really love the bright pink together with black and white, because it really pops. This shade of pink is a real favourite, and it even looks better with black and white.




I have chosen purple as my added colour.  It's my favourite colour anyway and I think it looks very striking with black.


 I put pink with black and white...it always looks classy!!



What's black and white and red all over?
A zebra with sunburn



My favorite colour is green. I love the combination with black and white. The green colour stands out. 




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