Week 404: RIDE


June.  How is it already June?!  This ride called life keeps right on moving along, doesn't it?  It's time for a brand new cue word and this one could produce a rather fun gallery this month!  We can't wait to see what it inspires you to create!

**One important announcement before we continue today!

Joyce is stepping down from the design team after 8 years!!!  Please give her a fond farewell by visiting her blog and leaving a comment there!  We have loved having her as a part of the team and sharing her talent with us!  She will be very missed!


Now on to this month's challenge inspiration!

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 and our guest designer created for inspiration!

Week 403: BOTANICAL


 
Subtle evidence of leaves about to burst out into the landscape is finally appearing for those of us waiting for spring to finally arrive.  All things botanical are on the mind and a gallery filled with this theme seems fitting!

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 and our guest designer created for inspiration!

Guest Designer:  Elizabeth
design defined:
Simple stamping enhances simplicity.
design defined:
Three elements clustered in the middle will create a focal point. 


Jacquie
design defined:
Leave lots of white space around large images. 


design defined:
Stamp your sentiment in grey for a softer look.


design defined:
Use foam adhesive to give dimension to a white on white panel.


design defined:
When using a large image, stamp off the edge so plenty of white space remains.
