Mixing it Up!

I will admit I'm the worst about mixing manufacturerers, at least with paper that is.  I can throw all kinds of embellishments on there but my paper tends to always come from one line.  A while back I got this paper from Carta Bella knowing I had some horse pictures and it was really cute.  The problem I had was while the pink was quite bold and the teal embellies were quite bold the teal that was in the paper was quite muted.  I really don't feel it matched very well.  So I pulled out these papers from Simple Stories Color Vibe collection and added them into the line.

Here is what I created by mixing the two collections.

In the close up you can see how well the colors worked with the embellishments and helped make the page pop.



  1. So fun to hear how people work - I rarely scrap by collections. And your layout looks great!

  2. Love the color combo you used, cute page!!

  3. Love the colors! I think you made a great choice!
