Every month we challenge our designers with something fun and this month it was all about monochromatic color schemes.

Did you get the August newsletter?  Well if you did then you got a FREE downloadable PDF from Designer Mary Pat Siehl featuring a quick “how to” on how to create EASY monochromatic looks with just embossing!  Core makes scrapbooking easy, don’t you think? By being a Hard Core Crafter you are automatically signed up for our newsletter.

Our Design Team also did some for us today as well. As you can tell our team likes blue :)

First up Kate Nolan-Deham…Kate used a banner to really enhance her monochromatic color scheme. And how sweet is her Glitter Silk dress form that she embellished!

And look at all this texture from Designer Gail Linder??!?! LOVE how she chose to use some yellow…a color I think a lot of scrappers struggle with:

A super simple card from Designer Ava Gavloski…monochromatic doesn’t need to be complicated….

Clare Buswell used our Core Amour Cardstock to create a unique monochromatic look:

And Tracy Gruber always creates the CUTEST cards….hippo-ray, LOL! So cuuuuute! And monochromatic doesn’t need to be the exact same color. Tracy used different hues of purple for hers and added some Gemstones as well.

And how about a Pink Monochromatic layout from Designer Ava Gavloski? Look at all that gorgeous detail!  Using the BasicGrey Core Impressions for her base and then just adding fabulous bits and pieces in pink and white….
