These workshops, featuring interactive scrapbooking elements, will introduce you to new and innovative ways to liven up your scrapbooking layouts, making the experience as fun for the viewers as it was for the creator!  You can jump in at any point in the series.  Each workshop is a completed project on it's own.  These techniques can also be used on cards and in art journals. 



I am creating my samples in my CTMH Bluebird Crush Book.  If you choose to purchase a Crush book (either Bluebird or Modville) and two coordinating accessory packs (total cost = $26.64), you will qualify to attend any one workshop for FREE!  However, you can choose to attend any or all workshops without purchasing a Crush book.  Bring your own journal, or just a page to add to a scrapbook or self-bound book.

Color Dare #88 - Smoothie, Buttercup, Sunset, Lagoon, Sweet Leaf

Welcome to the weekly Color Dare Challenge from Color My Heart.  Each Friday the design team announces a color palette for you to use to create your project.  You can create any type of project you'd like, as long as you use the chosen colors.



Color Dare #93:  Smoothie, Buttercup, Sunset, Lagoon, Sweet Leaf

This week, the Color Dare features a rainbow of colors.  I adore rainbows!  The only thing better than seeing my favorite color is seeing it within a full color spectrum.  If you want to sell me something, all you have to do is display a rainbow of items and you will instantly capture my attention - like a bug to flame!  :)  So I instantly knew wanted to create five items, each in one of the colors.  I could just picture a line of cute, colorful projects.



And because a rainbow is just not complete without purple, I added a sixth treat tube in Gypsy (X5757), just for my own pleasure!  I'm going to be donating these little cuties to my quilt guild for our quilt show boutique table.  Hopefully someone else will be drawn in by the rainbow and the guild can earn a few dollars to support our charitable projects!



I can't wait to see your rainbow!  Visit Color My Heart for more information about the challenge, get inspired by the design team, and upload your project.  I hope you'll join the Color Dare!
