Our First Color Challenge...for you!


Remember the new and exciting news that we were teasing you about?  Well, here it is!  We decided to give the Pages DT a monthly challenge, where they'd have to incorporate something specific into a project... and we decided to give our readers the same challenge! Who knows, you might have your project featured on our blog! 

Our first challenge was a color challenge inspired by Page's From the Heart new color scheme in their new location... yellow, grey and kraft!
You can create any project, a layout, card, 3-D project... it's totally up to you!  You can use patterned paper, solid paper, embellishments... it's your interpretation!  You can add white and black into your color scheme as well.  Once you're created your projects using these colors, please email them to me at

Here's what the Pages DT created with this challenge.
Christina created this great page layout using Kaiser Craft paper and a ribbon flower that she made herself!

Isn't it adorable?  You can create this same flower by using wired ribbon and going back and forth in loops, she used glue dots to hold the different loops together.

Here's another layout from Michelle, it's a feast for your eyes, I promise that you'll see more and more details every time you look!

I love how the flowers that she created double as frames around the pictures, I also love how she used the Twinery Bakers Twine to embellish the flowers (you can find the Twinery Bakers Twine at Pages).

And here's my project.  I created a card with this color scheme.  I love the simple card layout, you can change the colors, theme, stamps to fit any event!
I hope these projects inspire you to play along!  We can't wait to see what you come up with, so please take part in this challenge and email me with what you create!  The deadline to email me your projects is June 5th, midnight and we'll be posting the projects the following week!

Hope to see your creations soon!
