Default F4A300...Looking back to the beginning...11/20/2015

F4A300

I can not believe that we are at week 300. Time files when you are having fun, finding joy in creating something, and socializing/meeting crafters on Splitcoast! In honor of such a big mile stone, let's take a look back at the first dozen Free 4 All challenges. With 12 options, you can't say no to today's challenge.

Will you pick the one you missed?
Are you someone who has to go in order...so F4A1 it is?
Do you see a theme or technique that strikes your fancy today?

What ever reason you have, it will be the right one for you! And we will all enjoy oohing and aahing over it. Be sure to add both keywords...the old one and today's...F4A300!

Here are the links to the first dozen F4A Challenges.

F4A1- Textures, Colors & Patterns - 02/25/10
F4A2--Free standing popup card (3/5/10)
F4A3 - I Want the Fairy Tale! (3-12-10)
F4A4 Colorful baskets! {3-19-2010}
F4A5 - The Great White Way
F4A6...Let's Book It! (4/2/10)
F4A7 - Make a Quilt!!
F4A8 Out of the box and embossed! {16 April 2010}
F4A9 - Take a Virtual Vacation! - 04/23/10
Celebrate May Day F4A10 (4/30/10)
F4A11 - Just Gellin' (5/7/10)
F4A12: It's in the Spot...


Examples from the F4A challenge example team:
Julie Gearinger's Quilted Prayers
Serenity_Stamper's Castles in the Sky
Peeps123's Sweet Girl
Dawnmercedes' Stitched with Love


F4A300 Gallery Submissions


Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
Youíre done!

Thanks for the great challenge and Happy 300. I may make some more from the first challenges as I was not on SCS when these started and there are some wonderful challenges.

Here is my card:

Here is my card for the very first challenge - textures. I combined it with my personal challenge to make a Minion card for my niece. Also, I'm supposed to specify the color I used that I normally don't which is Pacific Point. It's a Minion Card! by annasmith - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
