Congrats! Feel free to grab our Top 3 badge from the side bar... even though there were four of you! :)

SOS Challenge 311: CAS for Simplicity Day!

Good day, stash-shoppers!  Thank you for joining us for our Flag Day challenge last week and hope you'll join in for this week's challenge...

July 12 is National Simplicity Day, and in recognition of that, let's do some CAS (Clean And Simple) work... and if you care to click the link above about Simplicity Day, 
feel free to incorporate the tenets of Simplicity Day.  
Pretty cool!

Now, stash-shopping already follows the tenets of Simplicity Day by making-do, 
so you are already ahead just by being here!  


For your inspiration, our awesome Design Team has come up with some super-sweet projects!


Mimi

(Though this looks messy, it's pretty CAS: I used old paper from my spray-box and just added a pre-diecut flower and pre-typed sentiments... so it's CAS plus I kind of went with "waste not, want not...")



I used several pieces of "found" acetate, stamped the image on each, colored them with Copics and layered them on top of each other with foam tape separating the layers for a tunnel effect!

(recycling cardboard from a box....and a birthday age. LOL!)




Link up below by July 17 at 11:55pm, and tell us how you used the CAS for Simplicity Day challenge!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Lazy Summer Days challenge!  Ours was a difficult task, but after much weighing-in, we settled on three projects that stood out, though there were many close-calls.  What a talented bunch!

Here are the top three creations as chosen by the Design Team, in numerical order:

Congrats! Feel free to grab our Top 3 badge from the side bar.
