Some of my favourite colours are included in the Scrapbooker’s Paradise PPC#94 colour challenge this week, and yet I had a hard time working with them. I’ve been making Christmas cards and projects for the past while and it felt strange to switch gears from green, red and gold and work with such soft, light colours.
I know a Christmas card done in these colours could be fun as well, in fact, I think I have one. (rummaging in files…)
Aha! So I could totally have taken it easy this week and just used this older card that I’ve never posted as my challenge project, but you get to enjoy a double feature, because I did make a layout as well.
We have just a tiny garden patch. It looks larger than it is, and so I’m always disappointed by our small harvest. But it’s good for us to be outdoors, learning to grow things, and we enjoyed our potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers (all six!) and strawberries this year. And my raspberries always produce well.
The kids were a lot of help this year and loved to be out watering and picking. Weeding, not so much.
I used pretty paper from My Mind’s Eye Indie Chick collections. The 6″x6″ pads go a long way for me and the colours are perfect for this challenge. And the stamps are so pretty – they are from Prima.
I love how with stamps you can create a huge variety of colour schemes, moods and designs. Definitely my favourite way to add interest to a project, and something I try to include in all of my classes.
Well, that’s it for me! Check out what the rest of the design team has done, join in the challenge and win some great prizes, and don’t forget to shop online or in-store at Scrapbooker’s Paradise. They have frequent sales and today it’s a Black Friday sale!
