February Challenge

 


There's some pretty cool farm buildings out there. This barn is a good example.

This month we want you to use a farm theme. 

It can be anything to do with farms, the animals, the buildings, the scarecrow, the farmer or other people on farms, even things that grow on farms. 

Here's some ideas






 

If it can be seen on a farm it qualifies!

Our winner for January is Theresa Kamp

Your prize this month is a card making pack.


Now here's the DT ideas for you.

January Challenge

 Happy New Year everyone! May 2024 be your year,


This is no architectural marvel, but it caught my eye. I guess it's more of a handyman special or a demolition dream. 

I thought it wouldn't be long before it becomes toothpicks, hence the challenge...

Use toothpicks on your layout or card.

They can be used in a variety of ways. Here's some examples I found on Pinterest.





Our prize this month comes from me again.




Our winner for December is Victoria. 


Now here's the DT ideas to help you along the toothpick trail.

December challenge

 


Our last challenge for Archiscraps 2023 is an easy one. 

The theme is Christmas and we want you to include an outside building.  (or part of one eg a window or door)

 Outside a stable and up on a roof with a chimney both count as outside buildings.

The prize will be provided by me and is Christmas themed.


Our winner for November was Mary Bennetts

October Challenge

 


The challenge this month is (we think) an easy one. You need to use a doiley! 

It can be any size or colour so long as we can see it on your layout or card.

Our prize this month is a mini purse album. The bag contains everything you need to make this. 





Now here's what our Design team ladies have produced.

The heart doily is on top of the large circular one. I used a doily-like die cut for the label at the bottom.
