a dash of color.

I’m excited that a lot of the paper companies out there are starting to add more color to their collections. I like the vintage stuff, but I’m not into the drab papers as much as I am into the bright and happy color schemes. I really like the vintage look, but I feel like that look has become overkill in the past five years or so.

For instance, the paper from A Boy’s Lifeย from Echo Park was totally something I enjoyed using. The colors were fun and lively – perfect for a little boy, or should I say dog, hehe.

…and because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I thought I’d be festive and use vibrant reds and pinks in the With Loveย paper by Pebbles.

Speaking of color, I’ve been loving the blue skies recently. It’s chilly outside, but I love it. Sometimes, however, I wish that we had gray skies, so that we’d get some rain around here, and perhaps some snow up in the Sierras.

That’s all for now.
