Week 264: SQUARE


It's hip to be square this week here at CASology!  Let's see where your brainstorming takes you!

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!)
Take a look at what the design team has created for inspiration!
