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

The color combinations for these 3 cards 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!
