Introducing…Craft the Rainbow

Craft the Rainbow book by Brittany Jepsen

It’s no secret we’ve been steadily working on a book while simultaneously producing a full month of content every month (or nearly every month–yes, it was a doozy of a year!). But what has been secret is the theme and the name. Today I’m so pleased to finally reveal the name of the book: Craft the Rainbow: 40 Colorful Paper Projects from The House That Lars Built as well as share with you the cover! Here she is in all her glory. But you know what? Don’t let that black font deceive you. Oh no no no. The final version has gold leaf galore and is suped up. It’s beautiful. Trust me.

Based on our popular hashtag #CraftTheRainbow (and check out our Instagram handle dedicated to it) started nearly 4 years ago now (you can read more about it here), Craft the Rainbow book features 9 chapters divided by color including a chapter solely dedicate to rainbow crafts, because if there’s anything I’ve learned in the last four years, it’s that everybody loves looking at color arranged in rainbow order. And this book is my ode to color. It’s a celebration of it and how to use it successfully in your own making. And, it’s not bad to look at, if I do say so myself 😉

When is it out?

April 24 is the official release date and we’ll be announcing the pre-order date soon, complete with freebies galore!

BUT! In the meantime, we’re looking to celebrate with some pre-launch festivities for some of our favorite readers, you in particular. Yes, that means you! And you! And you! And even you over there. It’s an all-inclusive party that you won’t want to miss out on. Over the next few months until the release, we are hosting this special team over on a closed Facebook group. This group will have access to sneak peeks of the book, giveaways for amazing prizes, discount codes to awesome brands, and weekly challenges to join the Craft the Rainbow movement! These will be exclusive offers to the members of the Facebook group, but we want everyone to benefit, so make sure to join in on the fun! The more the merrier!

In the news

But don’t take my word on it. We’ve been lucky to receive some great advance publicity from some of our favorite publications.

The latest issue of Country Living (Jan/Feb 2018) listed me as one of “The Country’s 100 Most Creative People”. Gah! Nuts, I know. It’s such an honor to sit alongside some of my favorite artists and creatives. For your first sneak peek of the book, they featured our color wheel party table from the rainbow chapter. Is it whetting your appetite?

Additionally, Martha Stewart.com listed Craft the Rainbow as “7 Crafty Books We’re Reading in 2018!”. You can read the full feature here. So exciting!

We’re so thrilled to share this exciting news with you and have so much more to share so get ready to dive into color this year, create beautiful things, and…

Craft the Rainbow!
