Mixing it up!

Wow! Is it ever going snow crazy in Logan. Hopefully you're all cuddled under a warm blanket with some soup, or at least thinking about it like us.

We've had some requests that we do ideas on mixing our old and new papers together. It's a cool concept, and really, why not use all those lovely, older papers? Incorporating them can be a lot easier than you think, too!

Winnies Walls has some of the most adorable designs, so I grabbed a few papers to make cards with.

That first dainty pull out card combines blooming buds, Lovebird's lovey dovey back, Oasis's caspia cardstock, and a Mimosa glitter chiplet. A quick and easy way to say hi!

Those graphic little flowers on the second card make a great statement, especially with that yummy green chiplet against the pink! The paper is playful pansies, and the chiplet is from Mimosa.

Nothing about this layout feels dated with a subdued combination of papers and elements. The background is Madera Island's iluvia back, with a strip of Penelope's Potpourri perfect petals. The yellow seersucker is oceanfront from Bridgeport, and gazebo for the photo mat. Embellishments are a bird die-cut from Lovebirds (that one is blue), velvet ribbon from Chick-A-Doo, coaster tag from Madera Island, and flower and tag from Bridgeport. The brads are from Poppy!

We would love to see what you guys have come up with! E-mail us ( or drop us a link in the comments with your results. We hope these have inspired you!
