Being it is a major holiday today and life tends to get even more crazy between now and the new year, we're taking a week off from cue words and, instead, having a little fun looking back over the last six months of CASology's existence! The design team has taken a look at all the fantastic entries we've had for the past 24 challenges and is sharing with you some of the cards that defined Clean & Simple (CAS) for us! We'd love it if you would share with us some of your favorite CASology entries from the last six months too! Just link up your favorites using the link tool below. Here is a little guideline for when you go to link up:
URL: Use the direct link to the card owner's blog post where the card originated.
Name: Use your name and then include who the card's owner is. (e.g. Melissa - Jane's card)
Email address: Use your own.
We can't wait to see which cards have defined Clean & Simple for you!
Here are the design team's picks for cards that stood out for CAS creativity:
Karen's one layer CAS card stands out in my mind because of its beautiful simplicity. It has clean, well-defined lines, a simple color scheme and an abundance of white space.
Jessi's card uses bold colours, a couple of fun embellishments and lots of white space to communicate a very clear and simple message.
For me, Donna's card is CAS perfection. It's one layer, well balanced (good visual triangle) and the rounded corner adds some interest. Also the font of the sentiment matches the style of the image and best of all it makes me giggle whenever I see it!
I am always impressed by Kim's cards, but this particular card is a standout because of its beautiful composition. The sentiment and leaf create a eye pleasing visual triangle and she has left the perfect amount of white space.
I am consistently impressed with Meghan's cards, she has a very clean and thoughtful approach to her designs. This is one of my favourite cards of hers. Meghan has a real knack for paper piecing, as she did in this card.
We'll be back on Monday, December 31, to introduce three new design team members!
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
