A Great Color Combo

Like Julie, I also used the Faded Jeans scrapbook kit for a Pinewood Derby photo! How could I not!? Anyone with Cub Scouts will understand what a great kit this is for scout activities. The blue hues and yellow are well matched for their uniform and neckerchief, so I just knew that one of my pages this month would highlight a scouting event! Going through my photos, I found the perfect picture.

On my Pinewood Derby page I mounted the blue patterned paper over yellow cardstock, adding photo corners all around. Next I layered blue and yellow patterned papers above and below a ticket border. Then I adhered several of the kit stickers to chipboard and used them to decorate the top half of my page, leaving room for my title.

The tags here are purely decorative. I love using them this way...sticking out haphazardly and tied with twine. 

Blue and yellow is such a great color combination. But you don't have to have a cub scout to find it appealing. Let's see what you can do with these colors.


  1. You girls have me digging through OLD photos trying to find some Cub Scout photos I know are there somewhere! These colors are perfect. I love the tags and the tickets.

  2. You are so right! The colors are above and beyond perfect. I love the way you tied the twine through the tags. Gorgeous page!
