We have a very talented Guest Designer for this challenge! Åsa! Åsa was the winner of our 'Summertime' Challenge as well as a few of our past challenges!


Hi!

My name is Åsa Johansson and I come from Sweden. I live here with my family and I work as a teacher. Cardmaking and scrapbooking have been my hobbies since 2007 when I was pregnant with my twin girls. The life turned up side down when the girls came and there wasn´t much time for hobbies. I see 2012 as my real starting poing. I love this world of paper, stamps, dies etc..... If I should try to describe my style it must be CAS. I love clean and simple cards and I love the CAS graphic style as well. I´m so happy to be here at Addicted to CAS as a guest designer. I hope you like my inspiration card. I so excited to see what you´ll create!

Hugs Åsa


Bobby (Hostess)





Now we turn it over to you to see your take on the code word 'Berries'! Have fun creating, and don't forget to keep it CAS!

#60 - AsaJ

Congratulations, Asa! This is what Jaydee had to say about your card:
I fell in love with Åsa's beautiful card.  The soft background reminded me of tropical islands and sheltered coves.  The waves give so much wonderful movement to the sailboat without detracting from the image.   All that wonderful white space around the focal image really allows the eye to rest on the nautical scene and the sentiment is perfect to remind us to enjoy every moment.  Gorgeous card!

Here is the badge for you to post on your blog:

Addicted to CAS Challenge #142 - Masculine


Hello there, CAS Addicts! It's time for a new challenge! Our Hostess is Ellenor, and she has chosen 'Masculine' as our code word!

We have a super talented Guest Designer for this challenge...Hannelie!

Hi, my name is Hannelie Bester, I am South-African, living in the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi) for the last 10 years. We moved to this part of the world because of a job opportunity that was offered to my husband. I started blogging soon after we moved here... hence the title of my blog!

Living so far away from my loved ones, made me realize how much I love them. Card making helps me cope with being far away from home, and challenges my right brain since I am a left-brained, logical and analytical pharmacist at heart! 

Graphic, bold and creative are words I come across when people describe my style. So happy to join the Addicted to CAS team as guest designer this fortnight!

Hi I am Gerrina.

Most of you know me from My Blog. I live in a small town near Eindhoven in the Netherlands.

You can easily say I am a stamp-addict now, but I never would have dreamed I would be after buying just some text-stamps to use in my photo albums in 2011... So I started stamping in the summer of 2011. I love to learn new techniques and how to work with new materials. The CAS-style is one of my favourite ones, but I also like to get messy in my Art Journals and I still like to scrap in my photo albums and planners and like to make books and Mixed Media canvasses. The only condition is that I have to work with stamps and/or stencils...

Playing with colours and paper is a perfect way for me to get my head clear from all daily things and from all the ideas that I get by looking at a stamp or stencil or the beautiful projects shown by all of you in blogland...

Here is my card for the code word Summertime:


OK, now let's see the DT's take on 'Summertime'
