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.

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!

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! 🙂

 

“Summer Love” Layout

Hey y’all! It’s me again, Kathleen, and today I want to share a layout with you that I made using the beautiful new Summer Love set.

Summer Love Scrapbooking Layout by ScatteredConfetti for Colorcast Designs

Right when I saw this set, I was in love! I love the bright pink that makes me thing of bougainvillea and peonies, and the fresh white and yellow bits and pieces in the set that remind me of icecream 😀

When searching for a photo to use with this set, I immedietely knew where to look. On our last trip to the Costa Brava (Spain) we also went to Cadaqués, a beautiful little fishermen’s village and it was full of bright colours. On every corner you turned you would find a new place that would make you ooh and aah!

I kept the layout rather simple: white cardstock as the basis, just one patterned paper, a tag, a few bits and pieces (ephemera, vellum, enamel dots) from my stash, some stamping and watercolour / acrylic paint accents and the layout was almost done. Then I only needed to add my Colorcast Designs products (from the Summer Love set and the #fromwhereistand from the #Hashtagit set), and it was done 🙂

I hope you feel inspired now to put your Colorcast Designs products to good use (or get the Summer Love set, if you haven’t yet! There are only 3 left!)

“Currently” Mini Album

Hey y’all, it’s Kathleen here, sharing my first blog post as a Creative Team member with you! I’m really happy about having the chance to work with Jessica’s beautiful designs! I’ve always been a huge fan of wood veneer pieces and I can never get enough of them (especially because they are relatively small, so you can collect tons of them without taking up too much space :D).

Currently_Colorcast_Designs_Scrapbooking_MiniAlbum_ScatteredConfetti_1When I saw the “On the…” wood veneer circle set in the shop, I knew I had to get those! I had an idea in my mind right when I saw them, and that’s what I’m going to show you today.

I decided to make a really easy and quick little mini album with them, documenting some of the things I currently like/read/do/eat/watch/listen to etc.

I kept the album quite simple: I made a cover that I only added the title and some enamel dots to. Then I added in two pages for each section (On the bookshelf/On the calendar…), the first one with the wood veneer circle and the second one with my journaling on it. To have some variation in the album, I used different ways of writing down the different lists.

Currently_Colorcast_Designs_Scrapbooking_MiniAlbum_ScatteredConfetti_Collage1Currently_Colorcast_Designs_Scrapbooking_MiniAlbum_ScatteredConfetti_Collage2For example on the first page I used a combination of stamped dates and my handwriting, on the third one I made a list with my label maker with two different colours of tape, for the “On the Bookshelf” page I wrote everything down in word, printed it out and then cut out the little paper strips, and for the last one I used different types of small black alpha stickers.

Currently_Colorcast_Designs_Scrapbooking_MiniAlbum_ScatteredConfetti_9.3Currently_Colorcast_Designs_Scrapbooking_MiniAlbum_ScatteredConfetti_Collage3On the back of the mini album I also added the date when I made the album, so that when I look back at it later, I always now when I was doing/reading/watching all those things 🙂

Currently_Colorcast_Designs_Scrapbooking_MiniAlbum_ScatteredConfetti_12.2Psst..did you see the other cute wood veneer piece that sneaked in to my album on the last page? That “yum” phrase is from the current “Foodie” set (which of course I also had to have!).

I absolutely loved this quick & easy project! And I think it’s so much fun to look back months or even years later on lists like these and see what you were into at that time! 🙂

So, I hope I could give you some idea for how to use your Colorcast Design products! 🙂
