Week #13: ZOO

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

It's time to think about wildlife!  This week, we're taking a trip to the ZOO!


We're guessing that fond childhood memories are going to come back to visit while you're creating!

This week, we have a generous new sponsor too:  7 Kids College Fund!  A $20 gift certificate to the store will be awarded to this week's winner!

The goal of 7 KIDS is to spark and encourage creativity in our customers by bringing them the most innovative, as well as tried-and-true crafting products at the best possible price with fast shipping and excellent customer service. We hope you will find our store and products exciting and of exceptional value. Customer satisfaction is our #1 priority!

Patterned paper is a great addition to your CAS design just remember to use it in small amounts.


Tracey

Embossed backgrounds are a great way to add texture to your CAS card, but be careful to choose a pattern that does not overpower your focal image.

Colour blocking is a great way to add interest to a CAS card while still keeping it simple.
