Put new COLOR in your creations!

Don't you just love this color combination?  No, it's not a paint chip from the hardware store.  It's a color combination that my computer picked for me!  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 10 years, I can't tell you how many times a customer has told me, "I'm just no good at putting color combinations together."  Most of them are better than they think, but until they gain some confidence, I direct them to this nifty little site on the web to help them get started, and I send seasoned crafters there to help them choose colors that may be out of their comfort zone.

It's called simply, SU Color Combos.   Now, you'll  notice that the colors in the database are all Stampin' Up! colors, but don't let that stop you from using it if you don't use SU products. It can still spark some great ideas for color combinations that you might not have thought of before, and all you have to do is search through your paper stash (and I KNOW you have a stash) and find the best matches.  If you use Close To My Heart products, try the sister site, CTMH Color Combos.  Both pages are courtesy of

Give them a try. Instructions are at the bottom of each page.  It's easy and it's fun!
