Week 200: CAS + Blog Candy!


Today marks a milestone for us here at CASology!  It's Challenge #200!  Can you believe it?!  We thought we'd focus on what CASology is all about, Clean & Simple design and provide a little excitement too!

Blog Candy Alert!

The design team is not only generous in providing inspiration each and every week, but this week the team members are offering blog candy on their personal blogs!  To be eligible to win, just be sure you do both of the following:

1.  Link up your newly created (no creations made prior to today) CAS creation here on the CASology blog.

2.  Leave a comment on the DT blogs.  Each DT member will be randomly selecting a winner from the comments on their personal blog post (& checking to make sure each selected winner has linked up a CAS creation), so be sure and leave a comment on their personal blogs for you chance to win!

As a little reminder, here are our Clean & Simple Design Guidelines to use when designing your CAS cards:

  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!)

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

Guest Designer:  Diana

Repetition draws the eye to the focal point & white on white keeps it clean.


Ardyth
design defined:
Leaving images uncoloured preserves white space!



Deidre
design defined:
Confine your image to 1/3 of your card for a CAS design.


Hannelie

design defined: 
One focal point & lots of white space is a proven recipe for a CAS design.



Hazel
design defined:
A tilted panel can add a bit of interest to a CAS design.


Jacquie
design defined: 
A simple color wash + a simple image + a simple sentiment add up to a Clean & Simple design.



Jen
design defined:
A top-third centre layout is classically CAS.


Joyce
design defined:
Keep your color scheme simple in a CAS design.


Judy
design defined:
Masking can add depth to a one-layer CAS card.


Kymona
design defined:
Simple coloring keeps a card CAS!


Melissa
design defined:
Diagonal lines work well in CAS design.


Sherrie
design defined: 
Grouping images and sentiment on one side of the card keeps card CAS.

designed defined:
Using a white frame on a white card base grounds a small image while still leaving lots of white space.


Go have fun creating your CAS design and don't forget to link up here on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CDT)!
