Finding the Right Colors

Looking for just the right colors to create those amazing scrapbook pages? Sometimes I find that I just am not able to quite get the right "color inspiration" so I turn to a few different sources.

Catalogs & Flyers - this is a great place to see the latest and greatest color combinations for the season. Tear out the page or make a note of it in your sketch/idea book.

Stores - oh the joy of shopping at Linen & Things, Pier 1, Home Sense.... you don't have to spend money when you go in.... take a stroll and jot down the color combinations they've used in the their displays.... or ask if you can take a photo! something just might tickle your fancy and inspire a wonderful scrapbook layout. Pick up some paint chip samples from your local paint store... they've got some wonderful combinations too! Local fabric shops are a great place too!

Of course there's always your Scrapbook magazines and fellow scrapbookers as a great source of inspiration.

Her are few online sources for inspiration...
