Warm Colors with Crate Paper

Hello! This week is Warm Colors week on the Crate Paper blog. Fall is right around the corner and we are gearing up with some fun projects. Have you seen the new After Dark collection yet? I love all the embellishments packed in this one!

 I decided to create a fall themed (not Halloween!) layout using some of the warm colored hues in the collection. Fall is my favorite time of year and last week here, it was a little cooler so we took advantage and had some soup and pumpkin spice lattes.

I incorporated shades of orange, purple black and cream into my layout. I started with a piece of the orange chevron patterned paper cut to 8.5x11, then layered a piece of plain vellum over it to tone down the pattern. Next I added my photos to a piece of striped patterned paper and adhered my title below.

The ephemera pack in the After Dark collection contains orange paper clips - how fun is that? I just love them. I added one of those to my photo collage as well as some star and wood veneer ephemera.

Here is the completed layout! I finished it off with a few label stickers beneath the title that hold my jounaling. Hopefully you can get your hands on this collection soon! I can't wait to create some Halloween projects with it.

Have a great day!

What a great idea to use vellum over a patterned paper to tone it down. I love the embellishments you've chosen, too. Great, awesome layout. Inspired. Michelle t
