Welcome to Week 2 of my Color of the Week series! This week we are looking at Grapefruit Grove, part of the 2018-2020 In Colors. In case you missed last week’s post (see it here), let me fill you in about this new blog series I am doing. With the Color Revamp, we now have 53 great colors to create with, so I will be featuring a color every Wednesday of this catalog year. I am starting this series with the new In Colors before getting into all the other colors. You will be able to see all of the Color of the Week posts here as they are added throughout the year.
Make sure to follow along here on the blog or on my Instagram and Facebook pages. I will be using the hashtag #makewithcolor throughout the year when I share color projects and combinations and ask that you join in too! All you have to do is tag me (@mackenziemakes) and use the #makewithcolor hashtag so I can see what you are sharing. I’m so excited to bring you color inspiration all year long!
Grapefruit Grove is a soft pinkish-orange color that is a bit darker than Petal Pink but lighter than Pumpkin Pie.
Use these color combinations as inspiration for making projects with Grapefruit Grove.

This card uses a piece of Designer Series Paper that really shows off this week’s color. Keep reading for the instructions on how to make the card.
The card base is made from an 11″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock, scored and folded at 5-1/2″ on the long side. Cut a 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ piece from the Grapefruit Grove floral pattern in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. Use the corner rounder from the Detailed Trio Punch on the upper left corner. Layer this piece on a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic Black cardstock (also with the upper left corner rounded). Attach these layers to the card base. Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad and punch out with the Pretty Label Punch. Add to the card with Dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, cut a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Use the corner detail design and the corner rounder from the Detailed Trio Punch on the upper left corner. Adhere this layer inside.
I hope you are excited to get making with Grapefruit Grove! Next week we will take a look at the color Pineapple Punch, so don’t forget to follow along here and on social media. I look forward to seeing what you make, so please tag me (@mackenziemakes) and use the #makewithcolor hashtag when you share on social media.
