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.

Keyword: CAS2012fallDT3

(No spaces CAS 2012 fall DT 3 -- not good. If you are concerned about getting it right, copy & paste it into your keyword box.)

By adding just CAS in your keyword box, you will be in 2 galleries. Separate all keywords by a comma followed by a space.

Please also post a link in this thread just in case there is an error with the keyword or if the gallery is being finicky on the judging days.

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, August 28 @ 11pm (EDT)

New Design Team and Guests will be announced on Thursday, August 30 at 8pm.

New Rules as of Fall 2010:
Please don't combine this challenge with any other current SCS challenge.
Please make only one card. (It's easier to narrow down the field this way.)

Top 12 and Challenge #3
Here are the TOP 12 (in no particular order)!


resqbarbie 08-25-2012 12:20 PM

Sorry for the delay...I had no power last night and this morning had a lot on my plate! I haven't even added the links or my card yet but I wanted to hget this up there so you can get started on the next challenge.

I have changed the deadline (because if we get hit with Hurricane Isaac I will be without power again!) to Tuesday August 28 at 11pm....I will announce the new team and guests on THURSDAY around 8pm.

Sorry for any inconveniences but between figuring out my new moderator powers, the hurricane and my personal schedule I had to do some juggling! Any questions or problems, Please PM me!

Good luck and Congratulations to our finalists!

tessaduck 08-25-2012 12:46 PM

Thanks for posting this, overcoming your power and scheduling issues. I'm jazzed to have my cards chosen for the final 12, and my brain's design center is already considering some ideas with these inspiration pics. Thanks, also, for extending the deadline, and stay safe RE Isaac! Breathe.

angelsparkly 08-25-2012 01:00 PM

Congrats to the top 12!

Clownmom 08-25-2012 01:11 PM

Wow, I'm very happy to be able to try once again to make this design team. I'm going to try to get it done BEFORE Isaac arrives. I've got a little time before my son and his family get here. We're going out to celebrate my son's 49th birthday.

resqbarbie 08-25-2012 01:25 PM

I hear ya Lois....be safe and let me know if you have any problems. My power goes out a lot so that's why I changed the deadlines. Last night it went out for NO REASON at all! There wasn't even any rain!

CAKath 08-25-2012 01:43 PM

So glad all is well with you, Denise. I'm sure you have a lot going on, so glad we are moving on to the next step! Exciting......

Clownmom 08-25-2012 01:58 PM

I managed to get my card done before my son and his family arrived. I chose the first photo as my inspiration. Here's the card:

Pennant Birthday

Good luck to everyone who made it to the final 12!

naturecoastcrafter 08-25-2012 02:15 PM

Batten down those hatches, Dee. Being on the coast, it's getting kinda breezy here already. Just tucked up the lanai.

tessaduck 08-25-2012 02:22 PM

Okay, you Florida crafters: Peace and prayers from the West Coast.

btw, I'm so excited to be in the top 12, I can't settle down to create. Still jazzed and jumpy, and there's no hurricane here!


GimmeInk 08-25-2012 02:51 PM

Wow! I'm so excited to get this opportunity and what fun inspirational photos! Congratulations to all the finalists...I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Wishing you the best in the days ahead, Denise! I'm in the Midwest, so no hurricanes here to worry about...just tornadoes from time to time!

hobbydujour 08-25-2012 03:00 PM

Thanks, Denise, for including me in this group of VERY talented ladies. Your challenges have been fun and the new DT is bound to be SUPER!

You, your family and home are in my thoughts as I watch Hurricane Isaac moving towards Florida. Be safe.

Alwaysinking 08-25-2012 04:42 PM

I am so excited to be able to continue to participate in the fall DT search!! So sorry about all the east coast challenges this time of year...must be very scary to deal with that kind of weather....actually makes me a bit more glad to be in the Midwest regardless of the cold! Good luck to everyone....I feel so honored to be part of the bunch continuing on! All your creations were SO FABULOUS !

mamaxsix 08-25-2012 04:44 PM

Congratulations ladies! Prayers to those in the path of the hurricane....been there done that know how tough it can be.

Congratulations to the 12 finalists! And to everyone who may be in the storm's path -- stay safe!!

Marzipan 08-25-2012 06:37 PM

:DSuper super happy here! Thank you so much for the opportunity!:p

Denise stay safe and thank you for all of your hard work!

resqbarbie 08-25-2012 06:47 PM

The wind has started so we took everything off the front porch. But I did get a new palm tree planted today! Hope it makes it...

gabalot 08-25-2012 07:40 PM

Congratulations to the Top 12 and Good Luck with your final challenge cards! Denise, you're a sweetheart and blessings for all you do! :)

Hope everyone will be safe from the hurricane. Ya'll are in my thoughts and prayers. We had earthquakes while living in no. CA and we have tornadoes and fierce storms here in the midwest. Evenso, hurricanes seem like they would be even scarrier!

ScrappingMommyof3 08-25-2012 09:30 PM

WOW! I'm honoured, thank you!!

I have kids going off to camp tomorrow, so this will have to wait till Monday.

Be safe everyone!

Congratulations to the final 12. Can't wait to see all the beautiful creations.

tessaduck 08-26-2012 06:40 PM

This IS fun! I did a curious twist in thinking (characteristic) to come up with this card:

Hang in There! by tessaduck - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

How many times have I felt like the birds on their precarious perch?

Good luck, all!

(Stay safe, South Florida and the Gulf Coast folks, and also the folks near the earthquakes in So. Cal.)

resqbarbie 08-26-2012 06:45 PM

Miss Boo 08-27-2012 01:16 AM

Congrats ladies! You've done beautiful work!

Just for fun, I made a card for the last challenge. It's amazing how much more productive I've been this past week with being able to move back into my scrapbook room and be organized. What a welcomed relief!
