Default CAS246 - Frosty & Festive Inspiration

Week 5 of our All-Star Holiday Season with design team alumni This week, we have Charlene, Nancy and Terri helping Denise, Harriet and me.


***********************************************

What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple .


It's all about the design .
* not the technique
* not the tools
* not the embellishments

It's all about the design .
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

It's all about the design .

Clean & Simple

*********************************************

~~~CAS WEEKLY CHALLENGE~~~




November 11

CAS246 - Inspiration Challenge


There are three photos to choose from. All were found on Pinterest. You can see the three choices by these links and in the attachments.

Silver & Gold Wreath
Melted Snowman cookies
Fun fireplace decked out for Christmas



KEYWORD: CAS246
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.

Let's leave some love for our DT alums who have made some amazing samples for us this week!

Charlene (cookiebaker)
Nancy Littrell
Terri (die cut diva)
Harriet (hskelly)
Jen (Miss Boo)


CAS246 Gallery



Uploading : Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration, showcase the CAS style and to get us stamping!

I can't believe this challenge worked for the card I had to upload today. That rarely happens. Gorgeous inspiration photos, Jen!

Thanks for a fun challenge. I don't know what happened, first it wouldn't let me load my card, then it skipped to this section, and I couldn't give a description. Thanks for looking.
