Happy colors- orange, white and blue

Hello! Jennifer Larson here, sharing one of my favorite color combos:


My kitchen is painted a light orange, and I LOVE the little pop of blue and white. Add a couple of other shades of orange and blue, plus a smidge of yellow, and you have the color equivalent of happiness.

Happy colors definitely need to be used when scrapping warm weather events, so I used this combo on a page about Spring Break this year:


I used the following papers' B sides to make my own striped patterned paper using all these happy colors.

Youthful Eggsuberance "Eggcellent"


Soul Food "Lovely Garden"


Material Girl "Hugs & Kisses"


Homespun Chic "Blue Redwork"


Fun House "Trick Pony"

I cut the papers at random widths from 1/4 inch to 1 inch. Next I cut a piece of white cardstock to house the strips; to do the curve on the bottom, I hand drew the curve and cut it out. I trimmed the strips as I lay them down to allow a little of the white to show.

I also dug into my DMC and hand-stitched part of the title. I lightly wrote the word in pencil, punched holes every 1/4, erased with a white eraser, then stitched.


The journaling appears on the tags, tucked behind the striped paper block:


I hope you're inspired to use these colors to scrap about some warm weather fun!
