It's time for the first cue word of 2018!  Let's start the year of with some encouragement in the gallery!  We're pretty sure all of us can use some as we begin a new year!  Here's to a great year!

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!)
Let's see what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
