Week 227: SPACE

Tuesday, December 6, 2016


We're blasting off with a brand new cue word!  White space, anyone?! 

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!)


Pink & Main is returning as our wonderful sponsor and offering this week's winner a $20 gift certificate to the online storeBe sure and check out their new releases and follow along on Facebook and Instagram to keep current with what's going on!

Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!

Tracey had the honor of selecting the Winner for Week #226 and here is her selection:

Bobby created a beautiful scene with her lovely stamped, sketchy candle that she coloured perfectly with her Inktense pencils. I love the shading she did to make the soft glow of the candle, that really set the scene. A perfect example of a CAS card.
