We love how colors change from year to year. It keeps everything exciting from your wardrobe to your crafts. But it can be hard to keep up with the trends. And harder still to figure out how to combine the new colors with the old. So we discovered a trick to making crafts in today’s palettes. Scrapbooking paper!
Scrapbooking companies are especially tuned in to color, so we look at their brand new paper designs for fresh color combos to use in all kinds of crafts, not just scrapbooking! We pick out a printed paper we like and use it as a “color board.” We carry the sheet around the store to choose the materials we need to make our project. Perfect palette every time!
Find a sheet of scrapbook paper that reminds you of your hubby to take the fear out of selecting yarn for his scarf.
