HI Everyone! Happy St. Patrick’s Day. I have a new release live in the shop today and wanted to share some awesome inspiration from the design team using these new products. And, I even did my own project to share this month!
Jen Carlson’s beautiful scrapbook page!
Barbara did a gorgeous scrapbook page too!
Jennifer Lake did an amazing sprapbook page too!
Becky did a fabulous Pocket Page spread.
And a Pocket Page spread by me!
I love them all so much! I have such a talented team. I will be back with their additional projects later this month. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
Hey 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!
The 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! 🙂
Hey 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.
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?
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.
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 🙂
This layout makes me really really happy when just looking at it! And it brings back so many beautiful memories 🙂
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!)
Hey there, it’s me again, Kathleen, and today I want to show you a layout that I made using some of my favourite Colorcast Designs products 🙂
When I got started, I didn’t have a clear idea in mind of what this layout should look like. The only things I knew were a) I wanted to use this photo, b) I wanted to use some Colorcast Designs products (so I picked out those from my stash that would fit the photo) and c) I definitely wanted to use some papers of the new Dear Lizzy “Fine & Dandy” collection.
Well, those were actually all the essential things I needed for this layout – except an idea for a layout in the sense of a sketch.. I had no clue where to put what and kept sliding things around for quite a while.
As you can see, I mixed many different products and collections on it. I used the #happy and #whatmattersmost from the #hashtagit set, the “True Love” heart from the conversation hearts set (I absolutely adore those – the colours are even better in person than on the picture!!) and also a gold ampersand.
I have loooved (and
hoarded collected) wood veneers for as long as I can think, but those acrylic pieces are stealing my heart as well! Seriously, the colours are gorgeous! The photo doesn’t do the pretty pink and bright yellow justice.
I have to admit that at the beginning I felt a bit uncomfortable with the combination of pink, red and yellow (mainly because I very rarely use red on my projects), but I think they look great together 🙂
I hope I could give you some ideas for how to mix & match your Colorcast Designs products with things from your stash 🙂
