Summery Colour Combinations and Rainy Layouts!

Hello all,

Today I’m here to tell you about a couple of posts over at the SJ Crafts Blog!

First up, it’s time for the June Challenge, and this time it’s a Colour Palette:

June Challenge Colour Challenge at SJ Crafts

The colours you must use are: 
Hot Pink * Tangerine * Cream * Gold *
The “Cream” can be a neutral of your choice!! So you could use Beige, Grey, White etc.

Ooh, it’s so summery it makes me want to go lay on a baking hot beach somewhere!

I used the colours to make a birthday card…

Here Comes The Sun:

I’m trying to encourage the weather to warm up a bit! I used the Amy Tangerine’s Plus One 6×6 Pad and a Die-Cut Tag (stitched with gold embroidery thread), plus some Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Ephemera, some Studio Calico Essentials Gold Stars, and some sequins.

Make sure you check out the other DT members projects, and enter the challenge to try and win a prize, right HERE!

I also had a couple of layouts go live on the SJ Crafts blog today, and these are all about using raindrops on your pages… the post is called Rain Rain, Stay and Play! Now, this doesn’t mean I want it to keep raining for real, as you can see from my card I really want some sunshine right now. But I’m quite happy for raindrop themed products to stick around for a while, as they are so fun to scatter around, and you don’t just have to use them on rainy pages…

Though of course you can use it for rainy pages if you want to…

Puddles Without Wellies:

I used the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine collection in abundance on these pages, including lots of the Ephemera Pack, which I’m totally in love with, as it has so many pretty bits and pieces! The Puffy Stickers are super cute too!

You can see lots more photos of these layouts at the SJ Crafts blog right HERE, with more information about how I put them together too!

Thank you for reading my weather-filled post! Is it sunny or rainy where you are? Do you prefer products with sunshine or raindrops?

Have a great day!

P.S. Don’t forget my free Refresh Your Craft & Soul event is fast approaching!

Disclosure: I am on the SJ Crafts Design Team, so I was sent the Hello Sunshine Products to use for the two layouts in this post, and I receive a discount off other items purchased in the store.
