Week 397: TYPE

We know what type of design we all love here at CASology.  Some of us type mush faster than others.  Many love to study their personal personality type.  Most of us know our blood type.  Is that enough to get you brainstorming for this week's cue word?  The gallery should be interesting with such a flexible word!

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 & our guest designer created for inspiration! 

Guest Designer:  Claire

Enamel dots are an easy way to add dimension to a CAS card and draw the eye to your main image.

A big, bold sentiment and limited use of colours and elements makes a design look CAS. 

design defined: 
Limit your design to 1/3 of the card front to preserve white space.
design defined:
Scoring adds interest to a card without busyness.

Stamp large elements off the side of the card.

Think outside the box when looking at the cue words... and have fun!

Welcome, Åsa!

We have some exciting news to announce before we begin this month's challenge!  Åsa is joining the CASology design team!

I’m so honored to be joining the CASology Design Team. I have played along with the challenges for several years, so when Melissa asked me if I wanted to be a part of this amazing team, I was super excited. I’m very much a CAS girl and just love the clean look. I’ve been making cards since 2007 and I started my blog in 2012. I love to take part in different challenges and to be inspired by other card makers. 

I live in a village in the middle of Sweden. I have a house that I share with my twin girls (14) and my son (19). I have worked as a teacher for 22 years now. I love my job because I need to be creative and open minded. 

I'm really looking forward to being inspired by my team members and all of you who play along with us.

Please help us welcome her to the team!  You can find her blog here.

We're absolutely positive she's going to be an inspiration to you as well as us!
