Guessing Game #7 - Simple Strategies with Sandy

In today's simple strategy post, I'll share how I work with colour. I start by selecting three colours from my photos : yellow, blue and green. Then use one of them (in this case green) for my background and the other two as the main building blocks of my layout, gathering papers and die-cut elements in those hues and clustering them together for maximum impact.

I've used supplies from the Main Kit, the Add-On Kit, the Add-On Paper Kit and the Embellie Kit on this page. The Star & Bee chipboard arrows and the 'love, love, love' stamp are from previous kits while 'fun' word title is from my stash. Remember to leave a comment with your guess of what's in this month's kits and you'll be entered to win a $5 GC to the CTK shop!


  1. I have no idea if it's a CT original or another brand, but I love the yellow pocket and tag!

    1. The yellow pocket and tag are from an American Craft line. Any guesses which one Ruth ?

  2. I see the pieces from the emphemera pack from
    Polka dot party by dear lizzy

  3. Love the SC chevron veneers and the cute piece of flair. Such a sweet photo.

  4. yes I love that CTK exclusive flair too.

  5. I love that you always use such bold backgrounds Sandy! I could never do that, but I always feel inspired by your work to try it! :)

  6. I'll guess either the Glitz "Finnley" line or "Wild & Free" line for that awesome background paper!

  7. It is a Finnley paper from the Add-On Kit in the background.
