3 Attachment(s)

Please keep the CAS challenges limited to cards only.
Thank you!


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


Hope everyone had a great week...here's what we got for ya this time...

Another new one to add into the schedule... Trendy Stuff ! I love to look through magazines, blogs and even Pinterest to see what's trending now. At this time of the year, everyone is getting ready for the Fall and the holidays associated with them. So PLAIDS seem to come back into the spotlight around this time of the year! And 2012 is no exception! Look at the attached thumbnail for some examples of how come Plaids are so trendy right now and make us a card using them!

October 7th
Trendy Stuff!

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

Leave some love for our dedicated and enthusiastic design team! Here are some amazing samples to help you get started:

Didn't even realize that my card would work for a CAS challenge. On Beate's recommendation, I've added CAS191 to the keywords for a card I submitted earlier today: Owl Thank You (Mojo 261) by WIP Paper Crafts

Great challenge - I should start paying attention to them! :)
