Welcome to the September Colour Suite! This month I sent my kids back to school, my son is a senior and my daughter is a freshman in high school. I was feeling a bit nostalgic for the good old days when they were in elementary school so I began this Colour Suite by choosing primary colours: red, blue and yellow. Primary colours always remind me of school. Followers of the Colour Suite know I often add a pop of something special this month it was the purple. I then rounded the Colour Suite with an espresso brown. I was super inspired by the brown and blue of this month’s Colour Suite. These colours neutralize the brightness of the yellow, red and purple making this Colour Suite perfect for September.

This month I invited the Scrapbook & Cards Today newest design team member Virginia Nebel to take the Colour Suite challenge! Virginia and I both design for Becky Fleck and PageMaps together so I was super excited to bring her over to my world of colour. Virginia told me she was drawn in to the classic timeless navy blue of the Colour Suite. It was her main colour of choice when she created her layout. The Colour Suite is composed of 5 colours. There are no rules for using the Colour Suite while I present you with 5 colours there is nothing that says you have to use each colour. Virginia took this approach with her layout. One of these days I am going to have to try this on one of my layouts.
Thank you for joining us this month and happy crafting!
