CASE Study Challenge #188

We're nearing the end of the month and it means saying a big thank you to our April Muse, Jaclyn for giving so generously of her talent and inspiring us in the last weeks. Before we move on, there's one more week to play and be inspired by the super lovely, collage card below!


Also, an announcement... Sadly, we have another Teamie leaving us today, and it's the amazing Debby. Our life gets busy sometimes and we need to make sacrifices, but the CS door is always open to all our DT members so hopefully it's not the last we see of her!

While our ranks might have shrunk considerably, please keep in mind that we should be back in full force and with new fantastic lifeblood, in the second half of May! The Design Team search is yielding some amazing entries. Have you lodged yours yet??
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:

Jaclyn Miller - April Muse



Catherine Pooler - April Guest Designer



Amy Wanford (Aimes)


-------------------------------------------------------------------
Now all you have to do is play with us!
Here's the scoop:
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 to your blog or an online gallery, 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 the authors of four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
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 (only valid on every second challenge of the month).
7. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

CASE Study Challenge #185

Welcome to our first challenge in April! It's with immense pleasure that we're announcing our new Muse, the awesome Jaclyn Miller!!


Hi, I'm Jackie, also known as Jax. I am a wife of 14 years, a mom for 11 years, a crafter extraordinaire and coffee addict. I started paper crafting 11 years ago after attending a stamping party. I began by dabbling in scrapbooking, but card making has stolen my heart. My graphic design degree has taught me that less is more, so most of my designs are clean, graphic and simple. I love empowering others to excel and inspiring others with my creativity. I am addicted to Sci-fi, Disco, the word "awesome", and popcorn. I can't live without my family, COLOR, sunshine, and yes - coffee. In the future, I look forward to watching my kids grow up, serving in my Church, inspiring crafters around the world, and seeing how you will be inspired by my creations this month! 

Here's what we're serving today for your crafty pleasure, straight from Jaclyn's inspirational blog:



Before we show you what the Design Team whipped up with the inspiration at hand, please also help us welcome our April Guest Designer, Catherine Pooler! Warm welcome, ladies :)
