The Main Idea

This is a bi-weekly challenge blog, which features 12 designers and 6 different styles.

Each designer has their own "style" of design and they explain how they were inspired by the challenge.

The styles are divided into 6 style themes:
  • Clean & Simple (CAS)
  • Clean & Layered
  • Clean & Graphic
  • Freestyle Collage
  • Shabby Chic
  • Classy & Elegant

We may have guest designers from time to time. 

The participants are encouraged to create a card, based on the challenge and they have to choose one of the "styles" of our designers to design in.

Each designer will choose one winner, so that we have two winners from each style.

We are aware there are "other" card making styles out there but have decided to just use these six styles to start...


  1. From someone who has not 'found' my design style, I LOVE this idea. Looking forward to challenges.

  2. Just found your challenge blog today. I am going to play along later today!

  3. just found your site...and will follow so I can play along..

  4. just found your site, looks very interesting. I'm just getting back into card making after a long time off. I think this will help jump start my mojo.
