Week 269: GRID


It's time for a new cue word and this one has endless possibilities once you really start thinking about it!  Jump outside that box and let your mind brainstorm away!

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 & this week's guest designer created to inspire you!
