Where does the time go. One minute you have a new born baby, the next thing you know, they're in school! I created this layout, inspired by the color palette released at Color Combos Galore. For those of you who don't know what CCG is, it's a group of people who love to be challenged each week by using a pre-determined color palette. We all post our projects and ogle each other's creations. When you look at the photo gallery, you can easily see the same colors popping out and it's awesome. We hope to have more and more people come and be inspired and play along with us. Since I joined the site, I have been SO aware of my color choices, and ultimately, it has helped me become a better scrapper.
Here is what I did with CCG #158:
Here is the inspiration board:
And here are some close ups of all the product I was able to gather with these colors. The last thing I added was a flourish stamp from Unity Stamp Co. I thought this was going to be a stamp free layout, but when I was looking at it, it needed a little something else. The stamp set is The Artist in You, a set designed by Donna Downey. I used Mustard Seed Distress Ink which is a favourite ink of mine!
In the shot below, you can see some older Prima flowers, with newer Prima leaves, those postage frames from Tattered Angels, some lovely Prima lace, and Tim Holtz Tissue Tape (that stuff will come in handy on so many projects and I think the roll will last a LONG time).
Oh, and here is the film ribbon from Tim Holtz, a goodie that I recently picked up and I love it!!! It's made of thin plastic and you can adhere it with any liquid adhesive that dries clear (like Glossy Accents, or Art Glitter Institute Dries Clear Adhesive). The acrylic tag is also Tim Holtz. I stamped the date on top with Staz-on.
And that's all for now. I am in the process of CREATING a super craft room! So I suspect all my creative energy will be sucked up by this!
Have a wonderful Monday! Happy Labour Day to both Canadian and US friends.
