Colour Suite November with Summer Fullerton…and a giveaway!

Colour Suite November with Summer Fullerton…and a giveaway!


Welcome to the November Colour Suite!  This month I was inspired by a very beautiful and colourful image I found on Pinterest. The scrapbooking colour combinations from this image are endless so I focused in on the navy and grey as the neutrals and built the colour suite from here. I then added the forest green, pink and orange. I loved how the red played off the pink but I can’t seem to ever put red and green together unless it’s Christmas.

For my layout I took a very neutral approach and used the colours as secondary players. I have always been a "colour in your face scrapbooker" and my layout seemed like a very subtle way to tackle this month’s challenge. Funny how the green was such a huge part of why I chose specific colours this month yet I hardly used it on my layout.




Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock, Patterned Paper Doodlebug, Flair Fancy Pants, Patterned Envelopes Fancy Pants, Glittered Hearts American Crafts, Rubons Basic Grey, Bow Studio Calico, Mini Clothes Pin Maya Road, Decorative Brad Basic Grey, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, Hemp Twine, Metal Alpha Die My Favorite Things, Metal Scallop Die Spellbinders, Misc Paint, and font Kingthings downloaded from the internet

This month I invited the talented Diane Payne to join me and take the Colour Suite challenge. I met Diane when she joined the Lily Bee design team. I immediately fell in love with Diane’s modern fresh scrapbooking style, it’s the perfect mix of clean and messy that I wish I could reproduce on my pages. I tend to take a very literal approach to the Colour Suite so I love having guest designers because they almost always tend to push the creative boundary. Diane embraced told me that while she used all the colours she was drawn to the pink and orange. I love how she managed to mix all the colour without overloading her story and photo.



Supplies: Crate Paper: Patterned Paper, Pins, Rub-ons, Die Cuts, Doily, Brads




Thanks again for joining me this month and taking all the Colour Suite challenges. After 3 1/2 years I am retiring the Colour Suite. Each month has been a personal exploration of colour for me and while I am sad this chapter of my creative journey is closing I am ready to write the next chapter. Thank you to my followers without your support this challenge would never had been born. Thank you to my guest designers your creativity has been so very inspiring. Don’t forget that while I will no longer be creating fresh and unique colour combinations each month the archives of all my past challenges and layouts are still available on the Scrapbook & Cards Today website HERE.  Don't be shy use them!

Happy Scrapping!

    This looks like an amazing class. I love to scrapbook, although I must admit that my layouts lack that WOW factor; pages that impress you and pages with awesome colours and snippets of things. So this would be an awesome win for me.
