2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC126), 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.

We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. If you'd like to be considered for our next month-long Guest Designer, put "GD" next to your name when linking up your project.

CASE Study Challenge #123

Welcome to the new year of challenges! I hope it will be a fruitful and fun year for all of us, and I'm glad to see each one of you back for more.
Traditionally we're saying hello to our new Muse today, and it's with great joy that I announce it's the super talented Amber Kemp-Gerstel!!


My name is Amber Kemp-Gerstel and Miami, Florida is home (though I’ll always have a soft spot for my SF Bay Area stomping grounds!). By day, I am a child psychologist, but once the workday is done, you can find me crafting like a madwoman. I began blogging in January 2011 in order to share my handmade card creations. Since that time, Damask Love has grown into a place for all things handmade with paper. I especially love to create handmade packaging and gifts. My style is clean and simple, though I love rustic motifs! Outside of the craftroom, some of my loves include colorful shoes, egg salad on pumpernickel and late night reruns of 1980’s sitcoms (Golden Girls, anyone?)

We also introduce a new Month-Long Guest Designer today, Tasnim!!
Please help us give both of these amazing ladies a warm welcome.

Let's move on to the inspiration piece, shall we?
