The Fall 2015 Color Report

The color gods have spoken! Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color, released their Fall 2015 Color Report. The 10 fall colors showcase earthy neutrals with a wide range of bold color that reflect hope, fun, fantasy, and natural beauty. Fall-Color-Report

These colors can be incorporated in your Mixbook book themes, stationery, cards, calendars and invitations for a trendy, seasonal touch! Here are some examples of Mixbook products that can feature this fall spectrum.

Reflecting Pond #204253

It’s a great deep shade of blue and green that holds a lot of complexity yet subtlety. This cooling hue makes text pop and bring the eyes straight to your holiday greeting. Our Leaves on Kraft Thanksgiving Card is a great example of how this blue/green color plays well into the traditional  palette of fall.


Stormy Weather #58646D

The name says it all! A dark, broody color that mimics an overcast day, Stormy Weather is a dependable choice that can match well with almost any other color. Paired with a glittery gold on our Modern Collage Birthday Invitation, Stormy Weather creates a modern look without sacrificing any color.

Biscay Bay #007784

A bright and energizing shade of teal, Biscay Bay is a warm and inviting color. Reminiscent of soothing tropical waters, you can see why it would be a welcomed addition to the fall color palette. Biscay Bay works great with the already rustic, neutral tones of fall. Adding it to our Rustic Chic Calendar makes the wood textures and handwritten fonts of the theme stand out. The floral and plant illustrations pop well against the vibrant color.


Cashmere Rose #CF86A3

A soft shade of pink, Cashmere Rose is a lot more upscale than the usual pink that we are accustom to. It is full of rich, warm color that can be used across numerous projects.  Using the color as the background in our Thanksgiving Photo Book, softens your photos and complements the earth tones of the holiday perfectly.


Oak Bluff #D09D5D

Oak Bluff is a mellow and comforting shade of orange that brings us a cozy, feel-good vibe perfect for the chilly holidays. As we see so many shades of orange and yellow in the fall foliage, Oak Bluff is strong enough to stand on its own as a great theme color. Using it on a Square Collage Thank You Card can bring out the perfect fall tones in your photography. Getting this bright card in the mail is sure to make friends and family feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Canvas Prints Are Here!

I have four important birthdays to celebrate in October – and this year I know just what to get!

Mixbook’s Create Your Own Canvas is the perfect, thoughtful present to give friends and family. I don’t have to drive to four different stores or buy wrapping paper or wait in line all morning at the post office. Best of all, no one realizes how easy it is to create something so professional and distinctive.

Oct. 6: Great Aunt Norma – a canvas print of the family together on the vineyard

Oct. 12: Katie, my best friend from college – a canvas print of the view from our apartment in Paris

Oct. 17: Dad – a black and white canvas print of him shooting a three-pointer on the basketball court in 1963

Oct. 25: Uncle Atticus – a canvas print of a sunset he took on a cruise to Alaska this summer

The high quality of Mixbook’s Canvas Prints takes them straight from the box to your wall. Like gallery artwork, they are ready to hang and ready to be complimented. Simply click on the “Create a Canvas” button and drag or upload your photo onto Mixbook’s website here. You can edit out that random shoe in the corner, zoom in, zoom out, or even rotate your portrait if need be. After that, just put it in your cart and order! The heavy lifting is all on Mixbook.


Now, if you’re ordering a canvas for yourself (and we don’t blame you), there are plenty of way you can showcase your new art.

Use painter’s tape to get your layout perfect. There’s a lot you can do with canvas prints! 


Whether you’re doing a collage, grid, or cluster of canvas configurations, the arrangements are almost endless!

Canvas prints can go great in an entryway. A beautiful family photo welcomes visitors and can immediately create a warm and fuzzy atmosphere.


A smaller canvas print makes a perfect table topper. Office desks, coffee tables, even shelves can hold your precious memories. 


A family favorite way to hang your canvas art is right over the living room couch. These photos can bring the room together and create an inviting space.
