Back to School Layout | Video Collab

Our Creative Design Team is back with another video collab for you. This month, we are sharing a variety of Color Theory projects and showing you ways you can combine color on your designs. If you are new to my blog and haven’t heard about our Creative Design Team, you can read more about them here.

I was a little late to sign up this month, and ended up choosing Secondary Colors for my Color Theory project. Before I share more about that color palette, let me warn you that I went waaayyy outside the box – which is something I usually do. Instead of your typical bright secondary colors, I “shifted” the color wheel a little and used a version of orange, green, and purple in the tertiary shades.

My Back to Virtual School layout features peach, peacock, and mulberry. This is a version of secondary colors in the tertiary color palette. I love how all of these colors came together on this page.

If you have no idea what I am talking about when I say Secondary and Tertiary colors, let me give you a quick little color wheel lesson.

All colors are based on three Primary Colors – Red, Blue, and Yellow. It is these three colors that make up all of the other colors. By simply adding white, black, or combining the colors, you get another color on the color wheel.

Secondary Colors are the colors created when you combine primary colors. Red mixed with Yellow creates Orange. Blue mixed with Yellow creates Green. Red mixed with Blue creates Purple or Violet.

If I were to use just secondary colors on a layout, it would look like this. Here is a birthday layout I created a while back using Purple and Green with a hint of Orange.

Now let’s take a look at how I “shifted” the color wheel to create a secondary-like combination on my Back to Virtual School layout.

On my page, I used Peach for my orange, Peacock for green, and Mulberry for violet. These three colors are considered Tertiary colors. Tertiary colors are combinations of primary and secondary colors.

Did she just say mulberry?? Yes, I did! On this layout, I just gave you a sneak peek at a NEW color and paper pack coming in May. 😉

Throughout the layout a used a few patterns and stickers from the upcoming You Are Enough collection. I am just loving these new colors and the addition of Rose Gold and I can’t wait to share more projects with you.

Now that I have explained how I created this twist on a Secondary Color palette and explained to you what Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary colors are, let’s take a look at the process video.

In this video, I share a few more twists on secondary colors and show you how this scrapbook layout came together.

So, are you ready to give this color combination a try? This little twist on the secondary color palette is just one of the ways you can combine color on your projects. I want you to be able to expand your thoughts on color and try new combinations on your upcoming projects.

Our Creative Design Team has quite a few other Color Theory ideas for you this month. Make sure you stop by each of their channels to see what they have made for you. If you missed any past videos, you can view our Creative Design Team playlist.

Today is one the first days that it has felt like fall.🍂The temperature is dropping, the leaves are full of colors, and there is moisture in the air. Not only did this put me in the mood for some chili & cinnamon rolls, it re-energized my creative desire to make something for fall. Doesn’t this layout just make you want to take a walk through the autumn leaves?MissCarriesCreations-AutumnAirLayoutSM

I chose to use the Hawthorn & Mix-In paper packs for this layout, as well as the Hawthorn Stickers, Wood Shapes, & Complements. I have provided you with a complete list of the supplies I used at the very bottom of this post as well as an easy to follow process video. 

I love how well our Layered Leaves Thin Cuts dies complement this layout. After cutting each one out from cardstock & patterned paper, I stitched them along the left side of the layout. I also used the same leaves on various parts of the page.

The vellum title was created using a heat embossing technique and then attached to the page using Liquid Glass that was hidden behind White Dots I shaded with a TriBlend Marker.  This is a great way to create embellishments to match your projects and an easy way to hide the glue behind the vellum.

To see how I made this title, as well as the layout watch the video below. Please let me know what you think of this process video.  I have just started getting my feet wet with this “YouTube thing” and am hoping to create a few more of these in the future.

Now ‘Hop” on over to Alyson Mayo’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas. Remember, the Autumn Air stamp set is only available until October 31st.  Contact your CTMH Consultant, or visit the Promotions tab of my website to see how you can get this stamp set for only $5.00.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

Remembering the Little Things

A Heart2Heart Papercrafting Challenge

It’s all about the little things. The little things matter. We miss the little things when they are gone. This week, we are asking you to join us at Heart2Heart and share the little things that matter to you.


Whether you choose to use our New Every Little Thing products or showcase the little things that matter, we would love for you to link up your creation before September 30th.  This week, I am sharing a few little things that I miss. 


“It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.”
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)  

Scrapbooking is a great way to remember the little things. Those things we took for granted like Green Jello Salad with pineapples at EVERY holiday dinner.  Or the smirk on an 80 year old woman’s face when she thought no one noticed her pinching a piece off the roll.  Scrapbooking our memories gives us the opportunity to write down the memories and share those “little things” with others.

When I began creating this page, I realized that the patterns from our Every Little Thing papers complemented the photos well. As I continued to pull paper patterns from my trays, I was able to also snag a few sheets from the Mix-Ins collectionI love how our collections are designed to complement each other. 

After designing the page, I retreated to Design Space™ to find some images and create the title.  After searching randomly for leaf images, I realized that the Layered Leaves Thin Cuts and Vellum Die-Cuts were a perfect addition to my layout.

I am so thankful that I was able to record the little things I remember from long ago. I hope that this page has inspired you to record your “little things” and share them on a scrapbook layout.  Please share your project with us at the Heart2Heart challenge. We always enjoy seeing your creations.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
