July 2022

Welcome back, friends!  It's July 2nd and we present to you our seventh challenge.  
We have a few changes this month.  Most notably, our color of the month is a

Trio: Red, White, Blue

You can play with one of the three colors, all of the three colors, any combination of the three colors, or a rainbow of colors.  You choose! 

Now that the 4th of July is past us, I have updated this month's mood board to be a bit more universal (except Christmas).  Who doesn't love the concept of Christmas in July??  I hope you like it and that it helps inspire you.  There are many color variations this month.  As always, please feel free to incorporate any neutrals that you need in your design as well!




Keep in mind that our contest is not limited to paper crafts, ANY crafty endeavor is welcome!! Makira and Eden have additional items to share this month that display the "options" side of our challenge.  

For more inspiration, visit July 2022 Colorful Options Pinterest Board.

Check out the beautiful creations from the team this month! They are sure to inspire you, they always inspire me!! Have fun creating, we cannot wait to see what you come up with using these colors!
