Week 231: FOREST


It's time for a new cue word and we're heading out into the forest this week!  Just think of all the possibilities!

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 and this week's winner will receive the fantastic Pines Fir Yew set!  Some of the design team has used this set to create their CAS designs!

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