Today, I have another great tutorial that is also a trick that I use to design my projects. Not only do I have a video, but I have some photos and a cheat sheet to help you all out.
Before, you watch the video I want to explain what this tutorial is all about.
One of the wonderful things about Design Space is that all of the shapes and layers are in color. Not only are they in color, but you can actually change the color of the layers. This is great because you can virtually design your project in color before you start cutting and using up your expensive paper.
Why not use the colors that are provided? Well, sometimes I do, but most of the time I like to use the colors of the cardstock and paper I know I actually have. Besides, I like the Close To My Heart colors more ;-)
In the video, I will show you just how to do this. Also, I have a cheat sheet with the Close To My Heart HEX codes that will help you change the colors yourself.
Here is the video:

Now, that you have watched the video, lets go over a few more things.
First, here is a sample project:
We seriously have to change those colors, right? Gray and pink do not work on this rose (rose is from Bits and Pieces).
I think I want to change the outline to a dark pink, so I will use the HEX code for Close To My Heart's Hollyhock. The main portion of the rise would look great in a pinkish coral, so I will use the HEX code for Close To My Heart's Smoothie.
Doesn't that look tons better?
Now for the cheat sheet. Below are the HEX codes for all of the Close To My Heart colors except for white and black. I hope you guys give this a try and I promise you will love how much easier this makes designing your projects!
