Scrapbook Challenge

Love & Aloha

A Color Story In Red, Yellow And Green


Hi scrappers! I bring you another project, this one with bold blocks of color and a summery feel. These photos were taken on Hawaii's North Shore at sunset. The pineapple patterned paper from Authentique's Utopia stack is a perfect nod to the photo's location. I used a Marvy Uchida punch to cut out hearts.


I love the red paper from American Craft's Wildflower stack that I chose as a background. The text describing adventure and beauty seemed like a good fit for my outdoorsy photos. I used a subtle green print from Paper Studio's Entirely Textures stack so it wouldn't compete with the red paper. Solid and patterned yellow scraps separate and offset the red and green.


This page was done for the challenge at Color My Heart. Their rules state I can only use the three colors provided plus black and white if desired. I really had to raid my stash looking for embellishments that fit the criteria. All of my Hawaiian themed items all had other colors besides the three needed. As a result, odd items like keys and buttons made the cut instead. As an added bonus, I noticed the colors for this challenge match the colors in my husband's shirt!


Scrap Our Stash was hosting another Blend-A-Sketch challenge. These are so fun and give lots of leeway for creating a fun and unique sketch. I wanted to keep the heart motif from the sketch on the right and wanted to reposition the photos to show as much of the wording on the red paper as possible. I really like the result!
