Layouts by Shannon and Melanie

Here are two more 6-colors-only layouts by Shannon Zickel and Melanie Louette:

Life with a Tween by Shannon Zickel
Supplies: Mountain Park Paper (35231) - City Park, Fairmont Gardens Paper (35242) - City Park, Forest Grove Paper (35226) - City Park, Stroll Grasshopper (53115) - Thickers, 12 x 12 White Cardstock (71801) - AC Cardstock, 12 x 12 Pool Cardstock (71069 ) - AC Cardstock, Max (59201) - Clear Stamps, Large Acrylic Block (59010) - Stamp Collection, Grosgrain Ribbon (58153 ) - Ribbon, Cricket Mini Brads (84884) - Elements, Carrot Mini Brads (8479) - Elements, Neutrals Round Buttons (85441) - Elements, .03 Black Precision Pen (62311) - Pens and Markers, Chestnut Ink (59512) - Stamp Ink, Sotheby's (42457) - Remarks, Strip Glue Runner (61712 ) - This to That

Shannon says, "Limiting myself to just 6 colors was a fun challenge! It simplified my creation process because I didn't spend extra time debating over patterned paper choices. Typically I like to throw a multi color stripe paper on my layouts, but since many striped papers have multiple colors I had no choice but to leave them out. In the end I completed a page I love - in very little time! Another tip - to make sewing pleats into my ribbon easier and not run the risk of ruining my already in progress layout, I cut out a small strip of cardstock and sewed the ribbon seperately, then I adhered the ribbon and cardstock strip to my layout!"

As someone who likes to sew a lot on her pages and has ruined a couple in the process, I really appreciate the sewing tip Shannon - genius! 

And here is Melanie's take on 6 Colors Week:
B & N by Melanie Louette
Supplies: 12 x 12 Vanilla Cardstock (71041) - AC Cardstock, 12 x 12 Aqua Cardstock (71058) - AC Cardstock, Typo Mustard (42979) - Thickers, Gobble Gobble (42138) - Remarks Dimensional Stickers, Abode Journaling Cards (64000) - Just Write, Dot Glue Runner (61713) - This to That, Brown Fine (62006) – Slick Writer
Melanie says, "I found these forgotten photos of my sons and the dog from two years ago while going through old files on my computer and right away remembered the fun day we had when I took them. I used an autumn colour scheme ~ aqua, yellow, green, red, brown, and cream after choosing to use the dimensional Gobble Remarks stickers which go along perfectly with the theme of the page. This was definitely a hard assignment for me, as I realized I don't usually use that many colours on a page!"

Lovely layouts ladies!
