Shades of Grey with Color Dare #176

This week at Color My Heart we are challenging you to use Black, White Daisy, Slate, and Whisper. I had one pic from Halloween that I wanted to scrapbook, so I though I might use the Nevermore paper. But I didn't get the paper pack, just the swatches. When I looked at my swatches and saw that I didn't have enough from Nevermore, I saw a bunch of grey and black & white paper in there. So I got the idea to cut 2-inch strips and arrange them on a white background with the picture matted in the center. So I cut strips from La Vie en Rose, Georgie, Nevermore, and Zoe. I also had some from Urban, but they didn't end up fitting. So, it's a hodgepodge, but it works with this color combo! For embellishments, I added some felt stickers and a zip strip from the retired Mischief paper pack.

Come play along!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Whisper
B&Ts: Nevermore, Georgie, Zoe, La Vie En Rose, Mischief
Other: Mischief Assortment

Color Dare #175

I feel like at the end of the year and beginning of a new year I am so behind on my scrapbooking if I don't have that year's album done, so I scramble to finish. Right now, I'm in that scramble. I'm making lots of progress, and I'm thankful for the weekend to work on it.

This week at Color My Heart, we are challenged to use Glacier with Silver and White Daisy. During my scrapbooking marathon, I came to these pictures, and I thought they fit nicely with the colors, even though they are summer pictures. So I made layout 9 from MIFYH volume 1 using what I thought was Glacier paper from the new Penelope paper pack. It turns out it was Crystal Blue, but hey, close enough!

It's hard to tell from the lighting, but that dark paper is actually silver glitter paper.

Come join us this week at Color My Heart!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Silver Glitter Paper
B&Ts: Penelope

Color Dare #174

Happy New Year! This week at Color My Heart we are challenging you to use Poppy, New England Ivy, and Desert Sand. I just got my Artfully Sent cartridge, and I was intrigued by the pocket cards. So I cut a few out in White Daisy and layered them with Poppy and New England Ivy. Then I added them to a Desert Sand base, along with my pictures from last spring. I think they go nicely with these colors. I can't decide if I like the CAS look, or if I'm going to add some embellishments after I journal. I'll just see how I feel when the time comes. :)

Come join us!
