Week 233: GLISTEN


Ready for a new cue word?  Whether you're enjoying the frosty nature of winter, the shimmer of summer or the result of an intense workout, this week's cue word is sure to inspire!

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!)

Poppystamps is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this week's winner a $20 gift certificate to the online store!

Let's take a look at what the design team created for inspiration!
