Week 227: SPACE

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!
