Week 255: FLY

Tuesday, June 27, 2017


We're flying on into a brand new week!  Come join us on another fun journey of clean & simple creativity!

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!)
Rubber Dance Stamps is returning as our wonderful sponsor this week and some of the design team has used images from the online store on their designs!

This week's winner will receive the Textured Feathers set (a 5x7 sheet, un-mounted, red rubber stamps)

Let's see what the design team and this week's guest designer created to inspire you!
