AYSI#186

Welcome to AYSI #186
Really can you believe that this is the #186'th design for AYSI?!?!  
Crazy. 

I'm loving all the ideas for this banner layout.  I can imagine so many things for it, BUT I can't wait to see what you do with it! 



I used some new designer paper from the tide collection by SU!  Then added some beads for a bit of whimsy.  There is a light texture to my card stock but it didn't show up very well.  
What do you think!?! 
What are you going to come up with?

back to basics

As You See It Challenge is heading BACK TO BASICS!  This weeks challenge is to only use the basics: Paper, Ink, and Stamps!  That's it!  


I had to resist adding ribbon to this card!  It was tough but I made it through.  I used the new background plaid stamp from Stampin' Up! and a mix of other stamps from them.  Using a masking technique I made the circle so that I could stamp in the center of it.  


Can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

AYSI Challenge 


How many of you need to make some new birthday cards?  I do and I'm challenging myself to make gender neutral cards that I will have ready to go, no matter who needs them.  


This card may lean it's way more towards a youthful card (which I need to make several of).  Today I tried out my stamp-a-ratus, it's super slick and useful!  I ended up using it to try to keep the candles at the same level but wanted the casualness of not the same spacing.  

Can you spot the brand new colors from Stampin Up?

AYSI #182

AYSI #182


Check out this zig zag layout!  What a fun design that can be used so many ways. 


I changed it up a bit with an old edger die that I had laying around since I couldn't seem to locate my zig zag one.  I've been playing around with mix and match patterns a lot lately.  Something they work and sometimes they don't.  I feel this one works but if I was to do it again I may change it up.  

What will you come up with this week when you play along with AYSI?

AYSI Challenge



What are you totally obsessed with?! Chocolate? Coffee? Stamping? 

I am obsessed with KITS!  Specifically, Stampin' Up!'s inclusive kits.  Ya know the ones that have everything you need minus adhesive.  I'm currently traveling and brought a kit with me to work on while we travel.  


They are SO nice to work with, no paper cutting needed, everything it there and designed.  Just stamp color and assemble for this kit.  I even did it while sitting in an RV.  

Hope you are able to share what you are obsessed with this week on AYSI!  

Thanks for playing.

AYSI Window dressing

Welcome to AYSI!! 


Are you ready for another challenge?  I can't EVEN believe that it's #180 already!  
Of course make your design your own but use the layout as your inspiration.  


Using the Share What You Love suite was my inspiration for this card.  Of course now that I look at it I maybe should of made the bow ends shorter.  Does anyone else do that?  Think yep, that works and then looks at it again and goes hmmm...maybe not?!!!  Anyway lots of snazzy layers and textures on this card, can you spot them all?  

Hope you join in this week!
