Week 267: BIG

It's time for a new cue word and we're thinking big this week!  We can't wait to see what your ideas are for this one!

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!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner a $15 gift certificate to the online store!  Remember, during the weeks STAMPlorations is sponsoring us, you can refresh your craft stash with the help of the 10% off discount code, CASOLOGY!

Let's take a look at what the design team & our guest designer has created for inspiration!
