Color coordinated albums?

Guess I am full of questions today!

Do you color coordinate all the pages in your albums? Or just pick random papers?

I just pick papers that I think go with the pictures. My albums don't really have a color scheme or anything. So I guess this way I don't really get bored or tired of doing the same colors all the time.

I always start with pics and then find paper that matches them. So, no, my albums do not have just one color scheme.

Mine are all over the place too. I do have 90% double LOs though because I prefer for the two pages I look at to match. I don't match the whole album though.

I try to make sure facing pages don't clash, but otherwise books are all sorts of colors.

My books are all over the place, I don't make sure that facing pages even match. It would be far too hard to get pics that all "match" to be on the 2 pages together, especially since I am working on the professional pic album where I have a bunch that are only one page LOs. I don't mind if the pages clash, when looking at regular photo albums the pics don't all match, although I guess that's a little different.

My paper compliments the pics. That's it!

The one album I have is a little of everything Smile I tend to follow the picture to make the page, instead of a preset color.

I don't do it on purpose...BUT, I tend to always go for Kraft paper. Pretty much all of my recent pages are Kraft paper.

my pages are all over the place, can't even imagine coordinating an album.

but somewhat related, I was thinking today about how I should have used more "baby" colors/elements in Jack's 1 year book - I've used darker, masculine colors. there's plenty of time for that later, I just wish I had done it more like a baby book. some pages are baby, but most are not.

My pages are all over the place too. I just go with what motivates me that day.

I match the pics as well. But I do have one album that is all color cooridinated. It was made for me before Brooklynn was born so all I did was pop in pics. All the ones I have done since have no color theme.

I'm going to have to remember that. I still haven't completed much of the boys' first year books. (although the post about how many albums had me go through them the other day and I realized I had way more of their pics scrapped than I had orginally thought)

My pages are all over the place. I match the paper to the pictures that is all.
