Welcome to the October Colour Suite. I love
fall, the colours of the leaves changing from green to yellow to red is simply
my favorite. These were the colours I thought of when I created this month’s
Colour Suite. I started by picking an orange/red, a yellow/orange and a green
that reminded my of changing leaves. Then I paired my inspiration colours with
2 neutrals navy and grey.
While my first thought was fall the primary
colours of this suite also lend themselves to scrapbooking those back to school
photos from last month. This was the direction I decided to take my layout. I
have a secret love of scrapbooking back to school so I decided to work with the
neutrals of navy and grey. Then I gravitated towards the yellow/orange it’s
really almost the same colour as a no.#2 pencil. I then used little pops of
green and orange/red sparingly.

Colour Suite confession time; I really wanted to
create a challenge this month that was different therefore my goal was to
embrace fall. What I learned was most of my product didn’t really fit the
suite. Apparently I have very little navy blue and almost no green patterned
papers in my stash. If you find that this Colour Suite or any of my past colour
suites have you stumped try creating elements for your layouts using cardstock.
I specifically focused on stamped and die cut items to embellishm this layout.
Stamping is a wonderful way to customize embellishments to coordinate with any
project. I tend to often favor black ink and coloured cardstock. I like the
crisp feeling the black offers and I don’t have a great collection of coloured
