Mixed & Matched

It's Mix & Match day at 
 and I have two cards to share combining the
 three new collections: Hello Sunshine, Pen Pals & Switchboard

For this card, I selected elements from the Switchboard and Pen Pals collections. 
  When making cards, I like to use the 6X6 Paper Pads since the designs are at a smaller scale. 
 The reddish tones in the two collections are different, so I chose to use only pieces from 
Switchboard that boasted the color. From there I picked the subtle pink and navy,
 which can be found in both lines. 

I used two nesting, scrolled dies from Spellbinders to create the layering pieces of patterned paper.
 I wanted to tie back in with the Chain Letter Paper (triangular grid) found on the base of the card,
so I die-cut a small oval on which the chipboard phone was attached to. I trimmed off the ‘hello’
 from the ‘hello friend’ puffy sticker before adhering. The Pen Pals’ Chipboard Alphabet
 letters in tiny banner shapes are a great size for cards!

This next card is a mixture of Pen Pals and Hello Sunshine. As with the first card, I selected
 the different papers that held some of the same colors in both collections. Here, I chose the
 yellow tones from Hello Sunshine and used only blues from the Pen Pals Collection
The reds and pinks from both lines match, so I was free to add any of those in from either collection. 

I love the diagonal pink/red striped paper from Pen Pals. The lines juxtapose about every inch, 
so I used that as my guide for cutting the banner strips of paper, which I attached with foam adhesive.
 Again, I focused only on the yellow hue from Hello Sunshine and tried to keep the Pen Pals
 colors focused on the red, pink and navy.

Pink Paislee has also shared a glimpse of their new Summer collection: Solstice

 Gold foam stickers....yummy!

That's all from me today!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
