This Challenge runs from

"Less Is More"  

Thing 1:  
Trouble Maker 
says, "How often have you heard the expression, Less Is More? There are many ways to apply it but let's relate it to paper crafting by creating a Clean and Simple (CAS) project. Several weeks ago I came across a YouTube video that demonstrated five techniques on how to create interesting CAS cards on white cardstock. What a great way to achieve more while using less. If you need a little help with your project, click HERE to view the video but if you feel confident about your creation, then go for it!"

Here are a few things to remember about a Clean and Simple style. Use clean lines, few to no embellishments, and leave plenty of unadorned white space. The concept of CAS can involve no layers or several layers but keep them to a minimum.

For our challenge, the guidelines are simple:   
1. Use a white base to create your project. 
2. Leave plenty of white space.
3. Layers are optional but minimal.
4. Make it clean, make it simple, make it fun!      

You can stop here... 
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance at our random draw.  

Thing 3:  
Twisted Sister  
says, "I like Clean and Simple. Taking less time while using fewer products appeals to my idea of 'Less Is More'. You may use a rainbow of colors, but in keeping with the CAS style, my optional twist is to include one color only, or multiple shades of that color, from my background color wheel. Black may be used as your choice of color or is free to be used for stamped items.

If you have included my twist on your project you will earn another chance in our Random Draw and are eligible to enter our partner's challenge, "White + 1 Color", below.

Thing 2:  Twisted Sister  
says, "If you have created Thing 1's Clean & Simple project, and have chosen to use Thing 3's optional twist "Use One Color Only" you are eligible to enter HERE at Use Your Stuff "White + One Color" challenge.
