What I love most about Spring and Summer are the bright fun colors and patterns that you see everywhere! As scrappers, we can find inspiration to use colors and patterns in all sorts of places! From fashion magazines to home decor, everywhere you look right now people are mixing bold colors and patterns to create eye-popping results! We can do the same thing with our pages! Who says everything has to match perfectly? Who says you can't mix zebra print with polka-dots? There are no rules in this craft, it's all about having fun and being creative as you preserve your family's memories!

Take a look at these bedding designs from Pottery Barn:

I love how they mixed random colors and patterns to create a fun and whimsical look!
In the first one, they used bright colored flowers, but then added the black and white polka-dot trim to anchor the design, but yet also give a fun "pop" against the crazy colors!
In the second set, I love how every color and pattern are totally random, but yet together create a cohesive look. From the florals, to stripes, to dots- it all works together!

Now let's look at some fashion inspiration! These photos are from Heart & Home right here in Buffalo!

In the first dress, not only are they mixing various patterns and neutral colors, but they added the fushia stripes which grab your attention and add fun flair!
In the adorable baby outfit, they took 2 patterns that most people would not think to mix together- floral & animal print, but as you can see, it totally works! It creates a fun, yet feminine touch that is full of "sass"!
I hope these photos have inspired you to take risks in your scrapping when it comes to color and patterns! Don't be afraid to mix and match and try something new!
In the store right now, we have the perfect line for you to practice with! Our Canvas Corp collection is amazing and FULL of fun colors and patterns! From zebra print to polka-dots to random words, these papers take "mix & match" to a whole new level!

Check out this cute page by Cheryl Lane:

Using the Canvas Corp Red & Kraft Zebra Print and "Live Laugh Love" papers, along with a bright floral print by Fancy Pants, she created a fun page full of bright colors and interesting patterns, but keeps the photo as the main focus.

Stop by the store this week and check out all of our new Canvas Corp papers!! And to top it off- they are 20% off this week!
