Stampin’ Up! Color Combinations

Today’s post is to help you select colors for your future projects. Every new catalog year, Stampin’ Up! posts project ideas on the blog with featured color combinations meant to give crafters “go-to” color schemes to use. I have compiled these projects into four pages (jpeg’s) you can use instead of tracking down each project on the blog. You can use these files as your reference or do as I did and print the pages out. I printed them onto four 8-1/2×11 sheets of photo paper, cut the pages in half, trimmed the left edge (I cut off 2-1/4″ from the left side), and secured the resulting “cards” together with a small ring after punching small holes in one corner.  I hope you find this resource and the color combinations useful :-).
