October Design Team Inspiration

Hi there friends! Happy Friday!!! It has been a crazy busy week at my house, so I am looking forward to a weekend that includes no real plans. What are you all up to?

I know, it has been a long time. I am so sorry for that. My blog was kind of abandoned. I am back and hoping to post at least a few times a month with Design Team inspiration and other little bits of goodness.

With that said, I am going to start today’s post with some amazing projects done by the Color Cast Designs Design Team with the October releases and follow up with a few projects from September’s release that I did not get to share.

October is a big month of releases as it includes; Halloween, Thanksgiving and December products (My Remember December collection). So, the Design Team had a lot of choices of what to play with for their first projects.

I hope that you enjoy this eye candy as much as I do. I have an amazing team and am so lucky to have them all!

The Wicked Awesome set.

Project Life® spreads featuring June releases

Hello everyone, Barbara here to share two Project Life® spreads that I made featuring the June Releases. I fell in LOVE with the veneer Here and Now set so it got a lot of use on this spread. I also added in pieces from the Solstice set because blue and yellow is my absolute favorite summer color combo. I kept a lot of the cards very simple and just added in printed text that paired with the veneer or the acrylic piece. I’m loving the new mirrored and iridescent acrylic pieces and made sure to find a spot for those on the spread.

spread 25 full

Here you can see some of the slots on the left side a bit closer. I love pairing a few of the acrylic pieces to create my title cards, which I typically like to keep super clean and white. I think it just blends better and I don’t really want the focus on the date card I want the focus to be on the photos. It always nice to have a bit of an accent that blends well with the spread so I always leave this card last so I can make sure it matches up well. The Hells Yes veneer comes from the Here and Now add ons.

Here you can see a bit of that iridescent Summer up close, it really is amazing in person, once of my absolute favorite new materials Jessica has added.

My second layout was a half layout that is the left hand side to the Easter spread I shared awhile ago. It only covers 4 days so it’s super simple. On this spread I used a few more of the new Here and Now veneer and the new gold glitter Right Now but also incorporated some of the previous releases as well. Pieces from Coffee Lovers and Basically Basics – Gold Glitter.

spread 11 full

This title card is one of my new favorites, I’m obsessed with white on white embossing lately so having the two white areas flanking the gold glitter Right Now makes me happy.

I also love the little rainbow of stars, these stars are from the Confetti Stars that are sold by the tablespoon, I happened to have all that I needed and I love that little accent.

I hope you are enjoying your products from the June release and I hope you have a great time playing with all that you have purchased.

See you soon

Game on!

Hi There, it’s Becky here today sharing a boy themed layout of my kiddo and our 70 lb. “puppy,” Jaxson, hanging out on the couch and geeking out with video games; a fan favorite in our house for the kids and the bane of my existence, LOL! Jaxson absolutely adores Connor and wants to be every where that Connor is! As sweet as it is, sometimes Connor wants Jaxson to take a hike — especially when Jaxson wants to give kisses when Connor is trying to play his games!

For this layout I used the Echo Park Game On! line and the Yes Please set. I love the size of the smoke grey acrylic sentiments in this set because they are so perfect for titles!

Here is an up close photo of the smoke grey acrylic, as you can see it is opaque which makes me love this color even more!

I love that I can break up the Color Cast Designs sets, like the Yes Please set, for multiple projects! These embellishments are so versatile and can be used in so many different ways!

Mixing & Matching your Colorcast Designs products.

Coffee Lover LO by ScatteredConfettiCoffee Lover LO by ScatteredConfettiHey there, it’s me again, Kathleen. Today I have another mix & match your Colorcast Designs products blogpost for you! (See the first one here)

On this layout you can find pieces from six different collections/sets!

Coffee Lover LO by ScatteredConfettiCoffee Lover LO by ScatteredConfettiThe circle wood veneer, the coffee cup and the “coffee lover” phrase are all from the Coffee Lovers set (which is the perfect set for me!! :D). The yellow acrylic star is from the Summer Love release, the #yummy wood veneer piece is from the Foodie set and the #forreal wood veneer piece from the #Hashtagit release. Then I also added a white acrylic conversation heart and a golden ampersand!

Coffee Lover LO by ScatteredConfetti

I think when you look at this page, you wouldn’t notice that there were six different collections on there because they go so well together! And that’s what I love about scrapbooking products, when I can mix and match them the way I want!

I hope I inspired you to take out all your Colorcast Designs products and mix and match them together on a single project! 🙂


Wanderlust Layout.

Wanderlust LO ScatteredConfettiHey there 🙂 Today I (Kathleen) am sharing a layout with you that I made using some pretty pieces of the Wanderlust set. I think it’s the perfect set to go with any travel and vacation photos 🙂

And now that the summer holidays here in Germany come nearer and nearer I am in full wanderlust-mode!! I can’t think about much else 😀 This summer we’ll be back at the Costa Brava in Spain and if you have seen the last layout I posted here on the blog, you might know that I am completely in love with this region!! Especially the little town of Cadaqués, where the photo of the LO last time and this one were taken – it’s just so picturesque!!

Anyway, I kept the LO quite simple (I made it after a Marcy Penner LO that I had pinned) in order to keep the focus on the pretty wood veneer and acrylic piece and my journaling.

Wanderlust LO ScatteredConfetti

The photo doesn’t do the bright blue justice – it’s even prettier in person! And it fits my new-found love for the colours blue and brown (on my layouts) perfectly 🙂

I guess this weekend I’ll need to scrap some more pictures of our past Costa Brava trips to still the urgent sense of wanderlusting and travelling 🙂

What about you, is there a place where you always find yourself going back to in your holidays?

Yosemite Outdoor Adventure…

Hello! Becky here today sharing the first couple of pocket pages from our Yosemite Family Vacation back in August 2012! Yes – I am THAT behind!

For this project I am using an older collection but one that I have hung onto specifically for this project! The paper line is called Take a Hike and it’s actually a retired collection from Simple Stories.

 The album I am using is the 9×12 Woodgrain album from Studio Calico. For my cover page I used a design 1B – 9×12 page protector and my Fuse to split the page up into small shaker pockets all the way around my title (and journaling, which is on the back) and then filed the pockets with sequins, resin shapes, wood veneer pieces and paper leaves. The cover page was so fun to make and came out exactly as I had pictured it in my mind (I love when that happens)! I also used the word “adventure” from the Color Cast Designs Wanderlust set which was part of the May release!

 My second page is all about our first look at Yosemite while driving into the Valley for the first time ever!

 I used a design 3B – 9×12 page protector for this page.

 The Happy Trails Triangles are seriously so dang perfect for this project! I was ecstatic to see them in Jessica’s May release!

The word “outdoors” is another piece from the Wanderlust set – I love how you can layer the semi opaque acrylic over other elements without completely covering them up!

 On this page I added another shaker box using my Fuse and on the backside I added the mountains triangle from the Happy Trails Triangles set.

 The 2B -9×12 page protector may be my favorite design with 18 3×3 pockets!

 I paired three more of the Happy Trails Triangles with the Happy Trails Expressions for this spread.

 The Color Cast Designs wood veneer pair so well with the earthy colors in the camping themed papers. I am really happy with how this is all coming together so far!

We camped at the Wawona Campgrounds in Yosemite National Forest and the South Fork of the Merced River runs right along the campground which was absolutely perfect for the kids! We spent so much time playing and lounging in the river — the perfect camping vacation activity!

 The “In the Summertime” wood veneer piece is from the Summer Love set. All of the summer lines really can be mixed and matched for all your summer activity scrapbooking!

 The final page I am showing today is from our first hike around Meadow Loop in Wawona. I love adhering the Color Cast Design embellishments right onto my photos like I did here with the “get outside” sentiment from the Happy Trails Expressions set.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look today! Be sure to pick up all the summer sets from the Color Cast Designs shop and take 10% off your order with the code, “becky”!
