Today's feature is all about mixing & matching Bella's collections. One of the great things about our collections is that you'll find the same colors throughout, whether you're using an older collection from a year or two years ago (or more!) or a newer collection that you just got your hands on. While it's so convenient to pull out a single collection and work from just that assortment of products, it can also be a lot of fun to mix and match between two, three, or even more collections.
“You Are My Sunshine”, by Jennifer Chapin.
Bella Blvd collections were made to mix and match! For this project, I decided to pick three collections - Whatever is Lovely, Simply Spring and Fresh Market. I knew I wanted to create an end of summer layout so I needed bright colors. The colors and themes in all these collections played off each other perfectly. I chose a piece of patterned paper from each collection and used that for my banner. I threaded twine through the top and adhered to the layout. I added my title using the chipboard from Simply Spring, then embellishment stickers from the other collections. I also chose to add a few ink splatters to play off the Whatever is Lovely collection.
Fresh Market: Borders, Daily Details, Treasures & Text; Whatever is Lovely: Admirable, 3x4s, Treasures & Text, Little Bits; Simply Spring: Sunshine, Treasures & Text, Trinkets, Chipboard Icons
“Think Happy Thoughts” card, by Corri Garza.
I love how easy it is to mix all the Bella Blvd. Collection. It's so fun to pick a color scheme and then flip through the collection to find paper that you like. I fell in love with this sentiment card from the Whatever Is Lovely Collection. I love the way it looks with the red pattern paper from Family Frenzy.

“Thank You” card, by Corri Garza.
For this card, I mixed more of the Whatever is Lovely Collection with paper from the Make It Merry Collection. This teal and red color combo looks so pretty together.
