Color Scheme Ideas for Heritage Scrapbooking

One of the hardest parts about creating a digital scrapbook is choosing the right color combinations. I’m not a graphic artist per se, so I love it when I can find resources to help me identify which colors come together nicely. I have found a website that I LOVE.

The Color Combinations website is primarily used for selecting carpet and paint colors for a home. However, color schemes and color palettes that work well in nature work well in home decor. And color palettes that work well in nature and the home, often work well in scrapbooking.

Here is just a sampling of color schemes that I found on the website that could be useful in selecting a color scheme for a heritage album. Using these color palettes as a guide will help you pick coordinating papers and embellishments that will enhance your family history album.
