Digital Trends | Black

There is a new color trending right now in the digi world – one that I didn’t see coming. Black is the new HOT color. While it’s always been a standard neutral found sparingly in many kits, black is now showing up everywhere as the primary color in a bunch of different kits. I’m going to keep my eye on the stores and see how far this trend goes but right now, let’s go take a look at some of the newest ones I’ve found!

The Lilypad

At The Lilypad, Lauren Grier has an entire collection using black as the base color. Her “Tomorrow” collection includes a full kit with 17 papers and over 60 elements, plus a separate set of journaling cards. There are even more sets in this collection available that you can find by clicking on the links associated with these kits below.

For the Birthday Boy by clouds85

I love this card so much that I don’t even know where to start! The background is three different pieces of patterned paper upon which the designer layered and matted multiple tags. She used dimensional adhesive on more than one layer so that the sentiment literally pops off the card. It’s absolutely gorgeous!

Gallery Highlights | 3.21.2013

Welcome to another edition of gallery highlights!  I have been drawn to bright, colorful layouts for weeks and weeks now – it must be because Mother Nature seems to have forgotten to bring spring to the midwest and we are still shivering with dark skies and snow almost constantly. So it’s a good thing the galleries have layouts that brighten my day and cheer me up just a bit. I found some more fun and colorful layouts to share this week – even some digital templates that use color beautifully. Let’s go take a look and I hope you like them all as much as I do. Don’t forget – you can click on the links to visit the layouts in their galleries and view supply lists, leave a comment for the designer, or view the designer’s other work.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by blinks14

I love the background Jessica used in this first layout. She used patterned paper to create little bricks that she laid out in rows across the middle of her page. She gave them dimension so that she could also layer digital stamps and brushes underneath as well. I also really like the way she framed her photo – she outlined it multiple times to give the impression of a frame without really framing it. This is a colorful, fun layout with a lot of interesting design ideas.
