FUSION {Hypothesis #3}

Welcome to Week 3 at FUSION. As you might know, Jackie Rockwell, my friend and co-creator of FUSION has decided to leave blogging. At first we were going to close FUSION but the positive response was so great that I have decided to keep it going with the help of Amy Tsuruta and the design team. Thank you ladies! We wish Jackie all the best!!

Kay Miller has also decided to go back to blogging for fun and has decided to leave the design team. We will miss you Kay!!! But I know you will be an active participant!

On a positive note-We would like to welcome Stacey Schafer to our FUSION team!!! We are thrilled she could join us and we know you will love her amazing, crafting style! Now onto this week's HYPOTHESIS!

What will generate the most successful card for the week; the sketch or the inspiration photo or the two combined? 


1. Play with just Jackie's sketch challenge.

2. Play with just Lesley's inspiration photo challenge.

3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.

4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.

5. Please read the other considerations on the Experiment Page before playing along.

Here are some fabulous cards by our design team showing you how it works! 
A special welcome to our Guest Scientists Jen, Cathy and Isha this week!
