Week 399: RENEW


Happy New Year!  A new year & a fresh start.  This month, we're focusing on a word that seems to fit the beginning of a new year.  We're looking forward to seeing what this word means to you!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note:  It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Let's take a look at what the design team created for inspiration!

Cluster your image together with the sentiment for a clean look.

White space doesn't have to be white.

Week 398: ABOVE



This time of year gets busy for so many people.  The year is winding down, but the holidays speed things up.  Rise above it all and take some time to play along with us this month.  Craft time is so often decompression time. 

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note:  It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
