Hooligans from CTMH. Color fun!

Hi there:

I have to say that my eyes for colors changed to a wider and sharper "it is about..." concept since I started to scrapbook and now I know, as scrapbooker instructor myself, how amazing can be when it comes to speak about the combination, a well seen coordination of colors and color shades per se.

Here is a layout I made featuring some of the colors I do no use often. But I really liked its result as can be seen above.

The paper collection is Hooligans from Close To My Heart, you can click HERE to find more about it. It's all about the cute monsters and bright colors!

papers, "stickease", black hemp, metal accessories, buttons(from Close To My Heart CTMH), journaling pen(ZIG memory system), plaid ribbon(Offray).

Have a colorful day!

April is here! Sharing a new project...

Hello Spring...

Here is the new display board I finished this past weekend at store so to promote my upcoming classes for Scrapbook and Design & U program with EK Success. Besides the Christmas Card going beyond the old Holiday Red, I also added the 12" x 12" layout I made for the Wedding Event days before, using colors that "escape" from the traditional B&W: bright pink and juniper green plus silver. The embellishments are purposely put to remind the viewer about nature and in this case, Spring. So butterflies and flowers have a great presence in the layout.
During the making of the layout many "scrappy" people stopped by to share their thoughts about this layout and I noticed most of them were so very pleased with the colors. I'm glad to be able to bring some new ideas to them and to refresh old ones they already have.

Supplies: Papers(My Minds Eyes, Recollection, DCWV), stickers(Recollection, Making Memories, K&Company), flowers, butterflies, gems and pearls(Recollection), Punch(MS, EK Success), ink(Colorbok, Tsukineko), ribbon(Offray), adhesive (Provo, Tombow), diecut(K&Company).

So take a look at the details of this project and feel free to share your thoughts too!

Have a great Spring!
