I like "my box"

Trying to match colors can be one of the most frustrating parts of papercrafting. I would waste so much time and energy trying to get the colors to match. This frustration led me to become a consultant. Since I stick to one manufacture ( for the most part) I have eliminated most of that frustrations. When I do buy paper that is not CTMH, I make sure it matches my CTMH cardstock.

My friend and joke about me being in the CTMH box...but I think it makes my papercrafting life more enjoyable.

You know what is even cooler? I dabble in digital scrapbooking and I have a list of RGB color numbers that match the CTMH color palette. I think it is so cool. I used the RGB list to match my computer journalling for my "A daughter is " LO. I want to share that list with you.

  1. Hey...I understand...I see the world in only 60 colors too, lol. And people think I'm crazy, but whenever I see stuff-- I always think in terms of colors that match too. So I guess I'm jumping in the box with you.

    I love that you always post such helpful stuff and thanks for always sharing!
