Mixing and Matching Collections!

On one hand it's easy to just grab a single collection pack and start scrapping, I also think it is fun to mixed it up sometimes!   For my page today I used some of the scraps I had from working with the NEW Best Friends collection and mixed it up with a bunch of papers from other Websters collections like Park Drive
One of my favourite papers in the Park Drive collection is the one that has the floral elements with the white script design over top.  I just cut out a bunch of the floral elements and used them as my page decorations.  I like to mix paper fussy cut flowers with textural 'real' florals when adding a cluster of embellishments to my page. 
Here's a close up of the bloom cluster (sometimes the flowers cast shadows when I take my full photo of the page so it's hard to see the detailing.  The butterfly is part of a cute charm packette from Webster's Pages.  The white thready looking stuff is from a roll of knitting yarn I bought from Michaels craft shop, I bought a huge roll of it for a few dollars...it goes a long way for layouts! 
The pink Bloomers trim strip from Websters pages is one of my favourite colors from the WP bloomers, I love the soft pretty color and the tattered edge on the bloom strip.  Here's a list of the products I used to make this page :)
Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Best Friends, Park Drive, Royal Christmas,
Perfect Accents: Girl Land
Phrase Stickers : Best Friends
Trim: Girl Land
Princess Petals: Best Friends, Girl Land
Cameo Stick Pins
WP Alpha stickers
WP Charms (Butterfly/green gem)
Bloomers: Pink
Pearl Flourishes: Zva Creative
Martha Stewart Corner/Edge punch (Swirling Lace)
 
I hope everyone has a wonderful and creative weekend! xo

You always leave me in awe of how you come up with so many amazing projects! I never seem to come up with anything good enough on my own. This layout is so pretty. What kind of yarn is that? I can't think of any that gives that effect you use here.

I am just paging back and catching up...had a bit too much on my plate lately.
Now this layout is something I strive towards...hopefully 2013 finds me trying a layout like this.
I have quite a few of these elements and really like the feel of this layout.
I like to fussy cut...it can be relaxing, can't it.
2013 is going to be my year of using my stash, combining collections and finding my own style.
Wish me luck!
PS I finally have some cards I like on my blog!!! teehee
