Hey there! If you’re a fan of the color yellow, be sure to check out the “Seasonal Solutions” column in the July/August 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes to see six fantastic layouts along with tips for making this summery color work on your layouts. Also be sure to check out a few of our favorite yellow scrapbooking products and color-scheme suggestions.
Want even more summer layout ideas for this sunny color? Here are a few must-try pages from past issues of CK for you to enjoy.
1. Add a sunshine accent to your layout. Follow Cindy Tobey’s lead and let the accent serve as a journaling spot on your layout. Pair it with a yellow background to create a warm, vibrant page that’s perfect for photos taken on hot, summer days.

2. Use yellow cardstock to emphasize your focal-point photo, like Jennifer Barksdale did on her layout below by adding a bright, yellow photo mat behind the main photo.

3. Make a statement by accenting a black-and-white layout with yellow, like Mou Saha did on her layout. Notice how the yellow accents add a soft touch to the strikingly simple black-and-white color scheme.
