Spring into Color with Crate Paper

Hello! Jennifer Chapin here today, and I am super excited to be contributing to Crate's "Spring Into Color" theme this week. Lately I have been so inspired by bright colors, so I decided to make my own sort of inspiration board using some colored clipboards and items from my scrapbooking stash.

I gathered up some elements.....pink, yellow and blue. Some of these items are new and some are vintage.

I also included some paints as part of the color spectrum.

Clips, thread and buttons found their way into my inspiration photo as well.

Here is the layout I created using the color inspiration photo. I used the new Poolside collection for this project. The colors were perfect! I used a color grouping technique and kept elements within their color for a tone-on-tone effect.  Let's take a look at the individual colors.

Pink - this palette is bright and fun, drawing a few different shades of pink together.

I pulled in pink tags, stickers, enamel and chipboard to complete the look.

Layering up these elements was so much fun. I also got to use one of the new chipboard frames, these are my favorite.

Next up, yellow. So bright and warm. My favorite accent color for scrapbooking!

This was my favorite section to create! I used a few die cuts as well as the gold glitter sun found in the ephemera pack. I was also able to incorporate the yellow clip from my inspiration photo.

Another fun sticker about flip flops. So perfect for those summer photos!

And last but not least....blue. Well, this palette is more of a blue-green, but I stuck with a more traditional blue color scheme for my project.

The patterns in this collection are so fun. These blue pieces look like water! So neat. I also added in some wood enamel dots, a pinwheel, acetate, and some stickers.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Crate Paper blog! I hope you can get your hands on some of the new Poolside collection. It really is great to create with using those summer photos. Have a great day!
