CASology #245: GROW


It’s all about flourishing at CASology this week:

I really felt this week’s cue. It reminded me of the times that personal growth often occurs when we are prepared to push ourselves beyond our comfort zone, even when it feels really scary.


I created a simple ‘cliff’ by masking off a third of my card with a torn edge of a post-it note, and the straight edge of what was left of the post-it note. The negative space was then inked in black, and sentiment stamped in black also.

I wanted the card to be all about the sentiment, so no embellishments or layers or other colours have been added. Don’t discount the power of black and  white to pack a CAS punch.

Take a look at how the rest of the Design Team have been inspired this week. We also have the very talented Lisa join us as Guest Designer this week, so you won’t want to miss her beautiful creation :

  2. Hazel, this is just brilliant. Perfect, perfect for the cue!! The black and white is so appropriate for your sentiment, too…it’s either jump or don’t, there’s no grey here! Just brilliant.

  3. LOL! I think it’s a stretch, but yes, nature’s architecture indeed. Ultra CAS and I love that sentiment. I’m sorry to be so late commenting. Thanks for playing along with our Architecture Challenge at The Male Room. Deborah, DT.
