  1. Surprise sneak peek is a day early this week! Let the previews start coming in
  2. Morning...Morning! Let those new sneak peeks start coming in
  3. Happy Sunday! The sun is shining, it's suppose to be almost 70 today (of course it's back in the 40's later this week) it's going to be a wonderful day! Let's see what the designers are cooking up this week
  4. Also I'm not great about posting my layouts in the gallery, but on these product pages I have some examples of pattern mixing http://store.scrapgirls.com/ScrapSimple-Paper-Template-Creative-Soul.html http://store.scrapgirls.com/A-Million-Little-Things-Collection-Biggie.html http://store.scrapgirls.com/Love-Song-Collection-Biggie.html http://store.scrapgirls.com/Your-Story-Collection-Biggie.html http://store.scrapgirls.com/Serendipitys-Collection-Biggie.html http://store.scrapgirls.com/Backroads-Collection-Biggie.html
  5. Here's a fun tutorial that has some tips: https://scrapgirls.com/newsletter/mixing-patterns and another one https://scrapgirls.com/all-posts/3-quick-and-easy-ways-to-mix-patterns And some basic tips I use: 1: There are no rules! 2: Pick your main pattern first. Maybe it's a large floral, or animal print...but I find it easier if I start with that one and then bring in other patterns that work with that. Also keep in mind with that main one, you don't always have to use it as the background. Maybe the rest of your patterns are more simple/traditional and you use pieces of that bigger print as a backing to a photo, strip across the top/bottom, etc. Just because it's the main one you use, doesn't mean it has to be the main thing you see. It can be an accent. 3: Mix different size patterns. If you use a large one mix it with smaller, it can even be the same type. Many people will say "you can't mix 2 floral patterns together" Sure you can! (go back to my tip #1) But visually it looks better if you mix a small/large floral rather then 2 large florals. You will also find some are very versatile: dots, strips, chevron, herringbone...also don't choose too many. Just start with a couple, and add more as you get comfortable. 4: Along with this keep in mind that when your mixing different patterns it can become overwhelming to look at. So you want to make sure to mix in solids. This helps gives your eyes a rest when looking at patterns. 5: Colors - use similar colors helps make the multiple patterns not overwhelming. I once learned of the 60-30-10 rule 60% dominant color 30% secondary color 10% accent Also something that I keep in mind when designing kits and layouts vary the tones of that 60% Think of it this way, if you were to walk into a room and 60% of it was the same shade of green it would be overpowering and boring. But if you mix the shades and/or texture of those green items then it helps break things up but still look cohesive

      I have a meeting in the morning, and I plan on making my own Gelli Printign Plate. They’re so expensive, and I hope it works. Another new craft to try. The sun is finally out, so we are all a bit happier! 💛🧡❤️

      We got about 1 1/2" snow last night (OR City). Snowed mostly all day, but didn't stick until last night. Portland got a record 10'!!! It is a royal mess this morning. Won't melt either as the daytime high is suppose to be be at or below freezing. :winter_brr:

      @mimes1 @April Showers April, I'm sorry Thomas won't be coming. :( Amy: Wow, snow in San Diego? 

      I was talking with someone today whose mother lives in Buffalo, NY and they got hammered with snow, no power, roads impassible, the whole shebang. They said even Buffalo, which always gets winter snow, had much more than usual. Crazy weather!!
