CAS Mix Up September Challenge

First a bit of sad news.
Sadly we are saying a fond good-bye to our dear teammate, Mac.
She is definitely one of the "sweetest of peas" and an awesome mixed media designer.
We have all learned from and been inspired by her creative designs.
We wish Mac the best and we'll miss her so much.


And now, welcome to a new challenge hosted by Joanna!

Check out the Top Picks from August's Paper Towel challenge HERE.



Message from Joanna
This month we're giving inchies a try. Here's to all you card makers, near and far.  This is the opportunity to start from scratch OR to grab those unused pieces, adding this and that, with OR without any previous planning. Here's to all of you working on your inchies somewhere, trying new things, making mistakes, and continuing to explore.  Here's to your tenacity.  May it always be part of our life!

August CAS Mix Up Reminder


There's still time to play in this challenge hosted by Loll!
Challenge is open until August 24th midnight (PDT)



Message from Loll
The is to challenge you to recycle those inky paper towels.
You can use your saturated inky towels to transfer some ink
for a unique and artsy background,
or simple use your inky paper towels to create backgrounds or die-cuts.
Lots of fun and a great way to make use of leftover ink.
