My New (no wait, old!) Color Scheme!

July 2, 2013
Happy…um, what day is it? Ah, the bliss of summer vacation…I wasn’t sure at first!
So, do you want to talk color schemes? 
I’ve been thinking a lot about mine for next year…since late winter, in fact!
You see I absolutely loved it this year (you can see some old pictures here). It was bright and happy, my 5th graders liked it (those colors are very in with kids…have you seen those bright clothes they wear??), it made me smile every day (I’m not joking, I’m weird about ambiance like that!)…so I thought, why change?
But, I should know myself better by now. Even if I say I’m not going to change something, I always end up switching it up a bit in some way. I just can’t help it!
So, I’ve been working for awhile now on some new signs. Same color scheme, a bit rearranged. Actually, a bit more adhered to my old color scheme…
Flipped Signs with the same five bright colors, all throughout the room!
The oval shape was inspired by my old student number labels from last summer
and a bit by the plastic bags project I made in June…
And these Oval-Shaped Leveled Library Labels are the first in the series! You can read more about them by clicking the image below…
And for those of you who are working on a similar color scheme, I would love to give a few sets of the Leveled Library Labels right now! 
If interested, please leave a comment with your email below. I will take the first three to comment below…
What color scheme are you planning to use this year? Thanks so much for visiting!

    I am planning my black and white theme, again. I love this new oval labels!!

    Brights (red, yellow, green) with a touch of black. Figure those colors will let me do a lot.

    Love your creations…you are so clever! (And I have a hard time leaving anything exactly the same, too!)

    I'm doing rainbow colors. These are so cute!

      BTW, I made a bunch of the bag containers with your design 😉

    That's three, thank you ladies! I'm sending the file right now 🙂

    I'm doing the bright colors too! I love them because they're like a pick me up in the classroom! Your labels are always great! I have always tried to find the clipart you use for your things because that's adorable too and I know my students would love that on their classwork but can never find them 🙁 (Sometimes I feel like I am website searching illiterate because I even went to the place you said you found the clipart lol)

    These are beautiful!! You are so super talented and I can't wait to use these in my room!!

    I know what you mean, it's hard to keep a room exactly the same, even when you love it the way it is! I love where you are going with these new signs though!

    I love these, Kristen! They match beautifully with everything that you have created lately. (Well, this last year.) I'm sure if someone sees them they will be able to say, "Hey, those are from Ladybug's Teacher Files, aren't they?" because they are so unique! Beautiful job as always!


    Fun in Room 4B
