It’s a Colorful Monday!

Here at the Core blog and we couldn’t be happier than to share this week with Stacy Julian! One of our new Core Impressions lines features Stacy’s amazing work. She has an eye for color that will just light up your day.

She put a blog post together for us today, too! We are going to be celebrating color and the Stacy Julian Core Impressions pack ALL WEEK LONG! Here she is in her own words:

I LOVE color! I love playing with colorful scrapbooking products, I love planning a colorful meal, I love surrounding myself with color at home—I even like to dress in a colorful way. Science tells us that there are approximately six million hues that are discernable to the human eye. Among these millions of colors there are a handful that consistently catch my heart. I ALWAYS respond to them in a positive way. They make me the happiest. I find that I am drawn to my “happy colors” regardless of where I find them.

For example, I love this green loveseat …

and I adore raspberry red, even when it’s not a raspberry…

I think orange Gerbera daisies are fabulous, but I love orange balloons and popsicles too.


This car (but mostly this color) makes me incredibly happy! My new office is painted this color.

The interesting thing is. I could walk into my creative studio right now and pull a dozen or more sheets of pattern paper that feature my happy colors—these that I’ve shared here, and others.

Once you know what your happy colors are, the process of purchasing, sorting and organizing Scrapbooking products is greatly simplified. I can more easily avoid purchasing items I don’t really love (even when they are on sale!) Depending on my mood and the needs of my page or project I can use my happy colors in combination with black, white or other neutrals or I can use them in combination with each other. As a bonus, the look and feel of my finished scrapbooks is unified as these colors are woven throughout!

I guess what I’m trying to say is, if you don’t know what your happy colors are, start paying attention—owning and loving and using your happiest colors is a wonderful way to celebrate your perspective and your life.

I’m absolutely thrilled that Core’dinations has created a collection pack with me—and I’ll be here all week to share color tips and tricks and perhaps even a few techniques.

Until tomorrow, I hope you’ll leave me a comment and share one or more of your happiest colors—I’m so curious to know!
