December Challenge

 Our challenge this month is inspired by this  Futuro House. 

Where are Futuro houses located in Australia? | Herald Sun. While it isn't exactly architecture, it is something to live in.


Either do something about space or use the word " future " on your item.

As yet we have no sponsor but a package of scrapbook items will be given to the winner.

Our winner for November is Sharon Bishop and may I say, it is lovely to see so many entries.


The Design Team have been busy whipping up examples for you.

We hope these jog an idea or two for you. A card saying best wishes for your future will be a simple way to enter this. Perhaps you have something more specific.

November challenge

 


The November challenge was inspired by the floor of this cathedral. This is Notre Dame in Paris (before the fire obviously). I was lucky enough to go there and it was truly remarkable.

We want you to USE GINGHAM (or a small check pattern) on your creations!

We are sponsored this month by Craft Queen. Please support her if you can.

She has wonderful buttons,ribbons,sequins and other papercraft items.

October Challenge

 For out theme this month we are using a sketch instead of a picture


It was the December 2014 sketch from "Stick it Down". Stick it Down: Tuesday Sketch Challenge

The sketch was designed by Brenshevia

I tried to contact her, but with no answer so I'm hoping it will be okay to use it.

Our winner for last month was Debra Beer

We are sponsored this month by Autumn Lane who make the most adorable scrapbooking flowers.


Autumn Lane – Paper Crafts


The Design Team have done a fantastic job as usual to inspire you.

September challenge

 After last month's nested archways, I thought we needed an easy challenge.


So this month's challenge is use shades of purple.

Remember you can do a card ,tag or layout or art diary, but the predominant colour needs to be purple!

Our winner for last month was Karen Brierley with a special mention for Liz Hocking.

There will be a purple prize pack this month for our September winner.

Here's what our lovely design team ladies have created.

August challenge

 The August challenge is based around this picture.


We want you to use concentric archways.

Yes it sounds a bit tricky, but isn't really once you get the first arch established.
This might help



Your archways should look rounded, but can have fancy corners such as those in the die cut picture.


Our Design Team have come up with some ideas to help you.

July Archiscraps Challenge

 


These chimneys are on Hampton Court palace in England.

They inspired me to think of a multiple patterned paper challenge for July.

So we are asking you to create a layout ,card,tag etc using multiple patterned papers.

Perhaps a patchwork idea would work.

Here's 2 ideas I found on Pinterest.



Why not stretch yourself to see just how many you can fit?

Link them up here Facebook 

Our winner for June were Karen Guy and Debra Beer.

 Because it was a tie, I will post a prize to each of you.

************************************************************************

We are sponsored for July by Dusty Attic chipboard.
