Week 205: CHEVRON


It's time for a new cue word & it happens to be a stylish one this week!

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!)

Cindy B Designs is returning as our sponsor and this week's winner will receive a $25 PayPal gift certificate!

Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
