Week 237: SCORE

Tuesday, February 21, 2017


It's time for a new cue word!  Who is going to score the prize this week?!  Better start brainstorming so you can increase your chances of being the lucky winner!

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 their choice of either a $10 gift certificate to the online store OR 2 ARTplorations stencils!  Remember, during the weeks STAMPlorations is sponsoring us, you can refresh your craft stash with the help of the 10% off discount code, CASOLOGY!
