Featuring Color Cast Designs │ April to August projects

While I'm on a blog roll, ha! I thought I'd also share all of the projects I made using Color Cast Design products. I've been so bad about blogging lately in general and sadly sharing the work I've done for Jessica hasn't been done like it should be. I do a good job of sharing my work on Instagram so if you follow me there you've seen these already but let me catch you up in case you don't on the last several months of work that I have done. I'll keep the commentary to a minimum but if you have specific questions please feel free to ask.

April

This month I made two pocket page spreads, this first one was using a kit that I just loved. Jessica had asked for some suggestions of what we would like to see and this set was one of my suggestions. I really love her larger icons so I thought a mixed set would be super fun. She totally nailed this set and I have two back ups, I loved it so much. Its still available and its called Punctuate This.





A little St. Patties Day spread using a lot of super cute food items from that month.




May

This was one of the first layouts I made for my Summer 2016 Notebook Mini album and what's not to love about a Pool Day! And how cute are those fish, the acrylic and the human.



This ice cream layout was super fun to make. I had to dig deep into the archives for some worthy photos but I'm so glad I did, I think it came out super cute.




Skipping ahead to July because there wasn't a release in June.

I always love when Jessica adds sports themed items to her line and this gold mirror had me all heart eye emoji! A super simple layout for a soccer tournament in my Summer notebook mini.


Holy Pineapple! I can't believe the Be Cool Pineapples are still in stock so you better grab them before I do, not to mention the gold glitter Hello Sunshine! This spread in my Summer mini had many different versions before I settled on this final product. Sometimes I push stuff around for a few days before I settle on things so if you do the same, know that you are not alone. Some things just take time. And for me, simple always wins.



I love how the images are muted in the glassine bag but then pop when you take them out.


August

And now we are current and I made three things with this release. Man was it a GOOD ONE!

Holy smokes, was I obsessed with the Olympics. Its not unusual for me to get obsessed but this year WOW! So much goodness to document and I loved that Jessica made a set for the Olympics, she'll even personalize your country name when you order. This set was the first thing I wanted to use when my box arrived.


The cards I used were a mix of free cards that Kelly Purkey sent out to her newsletter subscribers and cards that I purchased from In A Creative Bubble. I did also add in one sheet of gold star paper that is pretty old from Studio Calico.


Man I loved how this turned out!! Team USA baby. This reminds me that I also need to update the medal count card to the final numbers. Adding that to my to do list!


My next projects were spreads for my Summer notebook mini, the first was for the first day of school. Which I opted to included because its still summer and it was kind of a big deal. I used the School time set and one of the School Years wood veneers.


Jessica must have had ESP when she designed this set, the colors were perfect for my daughters back to school outfit. I did add in the hello piece from an older release.


The last one was for a hike that we took. I mixed pieces from the Take a Hike set and the Fresh Air set, that backpacker veneer is so darn cute. I kept this pretty simple with a large photo that I made sure to crop so there was room for the veneer at the bottom.


I decided to hide my journaling because this hike didn't quite go how I had planned. Leaving it hidden made more sense to me so it wouldn't take the focus away from the images. Without going into too much detail, I got dehydrated and really sick, it was too hot for me to be out that day and I paid for it big time. It was definitely a cool hike and one that I would like to repeat again one day but I would pick a 60 degree day vs. a 97 degree one.


Phew, you made it to the end! I hope you found some stuff that you loved. Make sure to check out Jessica's shop, she has so many other great sets that I didn't share here.

One last thing, Jessica is having a design team call so if you are interested in possibly joining her team, here's the info. Its a super fun team to be on and the ladies are all awesome. Think about it...
