Mix & Match


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.


“Count Your Blessings”, by Heather Leopard.

I count my blessings every day for multiple reasons but when it comes to my family not only do I feel incredibly blessed but there’s reasons to celebrate. It wasn’t the easiest road traveled for me, but in the end, I was given the gift of two beautiful girls. We recently baptized the littlest and the Illustrated Faith collection was right on point with the sentiments I wanted to extract.  Since this was a baptism, I chose to use a mostly white theme with a little pop of color. I loved the “You are…” phrases in the praiseworthy paper so I cut them out and scattered them around the page, choosing some that had the perfect words and others that were fill in the blanks.  The rest was all about layering some coordinating elements from various collections. I love to mix and match whenever possible.  It adds more variety to the pages and guarantees that no two pages from any collection will look alike.  The title was a mix of alphas, including the new Tiny Text alphas. How great are those???  Finally I added some white butterflies and a few more embellishments to complete the page.  I documented the church and baptism date and then journaled on the back.

“At The River”, by Becki Adams.

To create this fun layout about my son fishing on the river I combined the Campout collection and the Max collection. I wanted the layout to be primarily blue and green with a splash of orange. These collections gave me the perfect color palette and patterns.

“Family” card, by Julia Akinina.

My today’s card is very simple and pretty nice. I have choose one beautiful card with a good sentiment from the Daily Details sheet from the Family Frenzy Collection. I cut some flowers from the same collection to add to my card. They are very nice, and you can cut them all from the Border sheet. The rest papers on my card are from Just Add Color collection. They perfectly match to all of the Bella Blvd collections because they are neutral and also stylish. I love how the enamel dots are common with little berries on these flowers. Finally I added some machine stitching to make my card more layered.
