Senior DT Challenge: Crazy About Color Couture

It's that special time of the month again!  Time for the next Senior Design Team Challenge!  This month I thought it would be so fun to focus on one of our newest product line additions, Color Couture.  

You can find the entire Color Couture Collection in our store, HERE.

It is an amazing resource that allows you to create projects with ease and provide you as an endless desktop resource for inspiration.  I don't know about you, but I LOVE things like this that I can keep at my fingertips!

The following information is paraphrased from a big blog post I did in May that went into the details of the Color Couture line-up, which you can read in it's entirety HERE.

Open binder

Here is what this cute little binder looks like with the first set (Volumes 1-3) and the new second set (Volumes 4-6) of pages look like assembled all together in the binder. The binder measures 9" x 7.5" so it has a relatively small footprint and is easy to store. Totally takes me to a happy place to see all that goodness together in one spot!

Section closeup
 This is a close-up of a single section in the binder.

Page 1
 Here's an example of what the first part of a volume looks like.  You'll notice that the Color Swatch Divider is a bit taller than the other pages so that you can easily flip to any given section and browse all the color combinations with ease.

Page 2
 When you flip the Color Swatch Divider over, you will have the Embellishment pages using those colors ready to cut out and use.  There are five (yes, FIVE) Embellishment pages for each volume, with each page featuring several different elements that you can use for your projects.  I think they're fun to use as a quick jumping point because once you select one to use, all you need to pull out is the coordinating cardstock and perhaps a bit of ribbon to create a quick and easy project!

Page 3
 The third portion for a volume is a set of THREE Inspiration Pages, each featuring a full-color project, supply list and complete instructions.  There is one project each from Dawn herself, Betsy Veldman and Melissa Phillips in each and EVERY volume!  That means with the purchase of one collection (which contains three volumes) you get a whooping NINE project ideas using the very embellishments that you also receive in the package!

Binder top
 For those of you that are always requesting a Papertrey Idea Book, this is an excellent resource that gives you so many points of reference!  And don't forge that this is an ongoing series!  A new printed collection will be introduced once each quarter, with the other two months of the quarter bringing you inexpensive downloadable materials to add to your binder for even more inspiration!

Binder on desk

I keep my binder sitting right next to my ink pad storage on my table top so I can grab it and use it as inspiration whenever I am stuck.  This is a fantastic product line that Dawn has invested lots of thought and time into and I know that anyone who purchases this will be so incredibly glad they did!

Now, how about I show you some AMAZING projects that the team has created using the Color Couture Collection!

I hope you thoroughly enjoyed yourself as you got the opportunity to peruse through all of these fabulous projects.  We have received such wonderful feedback from all of our customers that have purchased the Color Couture line-up.  This post will give you much more inspiration to use with your purchase or perhaps give you the little nudge you needed to add it to your collection if you do not already own it.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Happy stamping!

    I REALLY want to know where you bought that ink and pen storage unit. I NEED one, maybe two! If you made it, you should patent it and sell it. EVERYONE would buy it!

    Thank you so very much for the Book Lovers creation. I have scoured this wonderful world of stamping for a set that fulfills my desire for a sophisticated representation for those of us that are also avid readers. I belong to a book club that has been meeting for 18 years. And, I give each member a hand crafted birthday card. It has been a bit challenging to continue to create something that represents our camaraderie and our love of reading.

    If you have plans to add to this collection please consider a few items groups of readers (book clubs) and also, a little ethnic flair. PLEEEEZE!!!
