Week 268: FORTUNE


It's time for a new cue word!  Predict the future or go for the gold this week and try your luck at winning the prize!  As always, interpretation is completely open to 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!)

We're introducing a brand new sponsor today!  Jaded Blossoms Stamps is joining us this week!

Anyone who knows us knows that we LOVE creating party favors and little gifts using paper crafts and stamps. So naturally we created our business with this in mind.
We carry a wide range of products such as Stamps, Dies, Favor Bags & BoxesTwo of our more popular stamp line themes are the Candy Stamps and Poem stamps.
Our Candy stamp line contains images and words that can be punched out using a 3/4-inch circle punch and put on the bottom of all different types of candies. 

Our Poem stamp line is also very popular due to the funny nature of the poems.. Pumpkin Poop, Santa Kisses, Snowman Soup etc.

Take a peek at our blog to see all the fabulous items our Design Team has created!

This week's winner will receive a stamp set of their choice from the online store!
