Week 266: CAKE


Let them eat cake!  Yes, this week you can say CASology gave you permission to do it!  At least in thought.

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