Week 2 Day 5 of Design School: Kristina's Picks & A Free Printable


We've come to the conclusion of our second week in Design School - we have one week left to pack it all in!  You guys have been doing an amazing job with your homework, and I'm loving your enthusiasm in our discussion.  Best students ever!

I hope you've enjoyed the lessons we've packed in as we've taken a look at the principles of Emphasis and Repetition, as well as the using color in our designs.  We've seen samples from the Garden Girls, our special guests, gallery spotlights and work from Erica and myself - today we're going to take a look at how a few manufacturers include these principles in their designs.  

Who better to hear from about these designs than our buyer herself?  Here is Kristina with her "picks" as she shares how these principles can be seen in a handful of lines in the Two Peas store, as well as how these products can help us use these principles in our creativity.  Be sure to scroll down for a special freebie and challenge, as well as a printable from yesterday's lesson.



Featured products: Off to School by Fancy Pants | Random by Crate Paper | Bella Blvd Finally Fall


Next, we have a freebie for you!  Because who doesn't love some extra goodies in their stash of supplies?  And now that it's September and Fall is just around the corner here in the States, we've included some Autumnal journaling labels.  Just click on the image to download/print and enjoy!


Now for your special bonus challenge, an "extra credit" assignment if you will: I'm challenging you to use an element (or 2 or 3 or 4...) from this sheet of freebies in a project that incorporates the principles of Emphasis and/or Repetition.  'm giving TWO randomly selected challenge winners a a prize pack made up of Crate Paper and Fancy Pants goodness - one of the brands you saw in today's video.  You have one week to upload your project to the member gallery - don't forget to check the challenge checkbox under 'Member challenges."

Lastly, if you found yesterday's lesson on using color in design helpful and would like a copy, click here to download and print.

That's a wrap for this week!  See you on Monday as we explore...


- Jamie
