Week 154: REPEAT


It's time for a new cue word!  In honor of this week's cue, we'll go ahead and repeat the basic tips for Clean & Simple design since it's been a while since we did!

1.  One main image
2.  Lots of open space (uncluttered)
3.  Limited layers & embellishments
4.  Quick & easy to recreate

Cindy B Designs is joining us again as one of our wonderful sponsors.

Be watching her blog because she is going to be starting an organization class in mid to late August!  Who doesn't need a few tips on taming those craft stashes we have?!
This week's winner will receive a generous $25 in spending money (delivered via PayPal) to use with whatever your favorite crafting merchant may be!
