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 My Life//Album Cover & First Spread

Happy Friday!!!

Today, I am sharing the start of a project that I am doing all about me. I want my kids to have something to look back on so that they can know more about their Mom. So much is documented about them and so little about myself and my hubby. Who knows, maybe I will make an album all about him too if he will let me! I am turning 40 in just a few months and have made some goals towards a better, healthier me. So…I thought perfect, I will combine the two into a mini album. This album concept is inspired by my best Aussie friend, Kellie Winnell and her creation of “Project My Life”. I hope that she doesn’t mind that I am stealing her project title for mine too.

I made some album covers on our laser and backed the cut out hearts with some patterned papers from Sahlin Studio “Create” line. I have 2 inch rings on it now, but the beauty of album covers is that I can pretty much make this album as big and chunky as I want it to be. The inside has a variety of 6×8 page protectors and the monthly dividers from Ali Edwards One Little Word kit.

And here is my first spread. All about starting to strive for a Better Me. I used Sahlin Studio’s new release, “Love Your Body” and some of the bits and pieces from “Better Me” set available in my shop. These 2 lines were made for each other!!

And here is what it looks like in my album.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope that you will follow along on my journey to a better me in my Project My Life album!

New Release Thursday//September Release

 



New Release-September 2015

Happy Thursday Everyone! I am having some technical issues with my Newsletter, so I am sending this as a blog post in the meantime. It is the 3rd Thursday of the month and that means that I have some new releases for you! My next newsletter (Beginning of October), will have some awesome inspiration from the Design Team.

Let’s get started with “Crisp Air“. This is a fun fall set made from maple wood veneer and several different acrylics. Next up is “Harvest“. This is the last set of the seasons sets (Frozen, Bloom and Solstice) for 2015. I hope that you all have enjoyed this series of sets as much as I enjoyed creating them! Fall is my personal favorite season, so I can’t wait to go on some adventures and use these myself!

Crisp Air Harvest

I have decided to add some simple shapes each month to coordinate with that months releases. This month, I have “Giant Ampersands” and several sets of Twinkling Stars and Confetii stars. I am hoping that you all will love these add ons!

Ampersands_September HarvestStars

Are you a book lover? So am I! I can’t believe it has taken me so long to come out with a book set! This set, “Eat, Sleep, Read” is full of fun bits and pieces for every book lover! If you love the “Star Rating”, be sure to grab a set of extras (“Rate It!“) to go with your “Eat, Sleep, Read” set! Think of all of the possibilities of what you could rate beyond books!

     Eat, Sleep, Read Rate It 2

And last but not least, my wood veneer only set and add on! “Yes, No, Maybe” is a set of wood veneer half circles, perfect to staple to the edge of a photo, pocket card, or scrapbook layout.Don’t forget to grab the set and the add on (“Hell No and Hell Yes”) to get all of the half circles!

     Hell No Yes, No, Maybe

And finally, a gift for my subscribers! Enter the code “SEPTNEWS” at check out and receive a grab bag of Color Cast Design goodies with your order! Note: You will not see anything after entering the code, it just sends me a message so I know to include the grab bag.

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! 🙂
