Challenge #45- 15 minute challenge

Is it just me or does it seem like our everyday lives get busier and busier? It's not always easy to find the time to get your craft on, but today we are encouraging you to block out 15 minutes from your schedule and do some creative play! Our design team has some awesome tips to share for maximizing limited time...
Heather's Tip: "While you have all of your supplies out, die-cut and stamp extra pieces to create multiple cards quickly."
by Heather Ruwe

  Betty J.'s Tip: "Make your card CAS, using few colors, and simple techniques when you have no time."
by Betty J.

 Jessica's Tip: "I find that when I am limited on time to create a card, my creative mojo seems to vanish! I rely on Pinterest to search for card sketches and find the perfect one that inspires an idea."
by Jessica Pascarella

Tracy's Tip: "I find that I often spend so much time fixing imperfections that only I would notice. Remember that the card is made with love, and the recipient probably won't even notice any "mistakes". As Jennifer McGuire says, "It's only a card"."

by Tracy Ercole
  Ashley's Tip: "Create a quick card by combining premade elements, like journaling cards with stamping! Also, skip the coloring by using colored ink."
by Ashley Marcu
