CASE Study Challenge #1

A warm hello, and welcome to our very first CASE Study Challenge!!! We're so glad to see you here :)

Please join us in welcoming our Muse for August: Makiko Jones!

Maki is a superb designer with a distinctive, crisp and eye-catching style. Her talent is widely recognized, and it was only a matter of time, that she made it into the Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen. Big congrats, girl, we're so glad to have you as our first Muse!

Here's what stunning card of Makiko we chose for this week's inspiration:

This week's sponsor is AesaLina from PixiePetals on Etsy!
Aesalina is generously giving a $10 certificate to her store, for one lucky participant.


We would love to have you playing along with us!

Here are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC01), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until the end of Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose one winner randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor. In addition, the authors of the four most impressive creations will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Happy creating!
The CASE Study Design Team
