Are you loving all the new Stampin’ Up! colors as much as I am???  Not only are all the new colors amazing, but they coordinate so well with our old colors to make a color collection that is out of this world!  I have a lot of information to share with you today and lots of downloads that I just know will be very useful to you when you are stamping and creating.  You will be able to make your own COLOR COACH with these documents that will be your “right hand tool” in your stamping tool box!

What is a Color Coach?

Every current Stampin’ Up! color has it’s own “page” with 3 different color combinations that look awesome together.  When you are stamping, and not quite sure what colors to put together, you just grab this coach and you have limitless options!  I use it all the time.  Often I know I want to use a specific color, like Coastal Cabana, so I simply turn to that page and look at some of the options for other colors to use.

Good 2 color combinations

These are 3 cards I shared last week (along with a video) and my color combination came from the Coastal Cabana page of my color coach!  Don’t these 3 colors look fabulous together!!!! It’s also great for finding 2 color combinations.

Make Your Own Color Coach

I have several free downloads for you so that you can make your very own Color Coach.  After you download and print them, you can make your “coach” however you want.

I printed mine on Whisper White Cardstock and then cut them down to 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″. Then I layered them onto 3″ x 4″ pieces of colored cardstock.  For added protection, I laminated them.  You probably don’t really have to do this, but I liked how sturdy it made them.  To keep them in order, I punched holes in the upper left and put them all on a big ring.  I have them in the same order that I store my cardstock and ink pads.

Another option would be to keep them as 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets and put into a binder–do what works for you and keep them handy so you can use them often!
