CASE Study Challenge #47

Well hello, inkers! You certainly did your best with the sneaky peek yesterday. So, to those of you who guessed that our July Muse is Dawn Woleslagle from WPlus9, congratulations - you guessed right!
We're so happy to have this talented lady joining us for the whole month... take it away, Dawn!

Professionally, Dawn has been an graphic artist/designer for over 13 years. However, her love of art began as a child while sewing with her mother, creating pottery with her grandmother, and teaching herself to oil paint by watching Bob Ross. "And here lives a happy little tree." Sorry, I couldn't resist. It wasn't until she was an adult that she realized she could earn a living doing what she loved through graphic design.

She was introduced to paper crafting by way of a stamp club party. Little did she know how much she would come to love the art of card making. When she realized that she could combine her love of graphic illustration and stamping, Wplus9 Design Studio was born. It was a match made in heaven.

"I am absolutely in awe every time I see a creation in blogland or gracing the pages of a magazine using stamps that I designed! It is the most rewarding and exhilarating feeling in the world. I am truly grateful to each and every person who supports Wplus9 and look forward to providing high quality stamps and accessories for as long as you all will have me!" ~ Dawn

Here's Dawn's awe-inspiring creation for this week:

Before I get into our Design Team's creations, I've got to share some sad news... Lenet and Melyssa are unfortunately stepping down this week. We're going to miss you and your amazing creations, ladies! Their shoes are going to be filled shortly, so stay tuned for the announcement!

Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:

Dawn Woleslagle - July Muse

Andrea Ewen

Cristina Kowalczyk

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)

Jean Martin
(on a break this week)

Julie Smith

Sue Kohler

Teneale Williams

Now all you have to do is play 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 CSC47), 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 midnight on 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
