Mix It Up!

Do you have a favorite Bo Bunny collection?  I know I do, and like you, I admit that I tend to stick with one collection when creating my scrapbook pages, cards and other projects.  It's easy to do when Bo Bunny creates so many wonderfully coordinated embellishment to go with each collection.  But let's stop and consider what might happen if you tried to mix it up a bit.  Take a look at paper and embellishments from various Bo Bunny collections that you have in your stash.  Take the time and study them a bit. Look for colors and patterns that coordinate with each other.  Think outside the theme that each collection might have.  Look at the colors and patterns again.  You will find that many of them cross over really well with each other.  Yes, this will require you to think outside the box a bit, but the results can be stunning.  Today our Bo Bunny designers have created layouts by mixing up various Bo Bunny collections and they have succeeded in creating some rather inspiring projects to share with you today.

First up Tomoko combined Forever Fall, Blitzen, Et Cetera and Garden Girl.  She choose colors and patterns as well as embellishments that helped her tell the story behind the photo of her and her gorgeous daughter.  This is an everyday photo and she used fall and Christmas products to tell her story.  Simply amazing!

The next layout was created by Christiane.  She too used a great mix of collections.  She incorporated Garden Girl, Vicki B., Timepiece, Zoology and Et Cetera.  Again, she choose products whose colors and patterns coordinated well.  She used a wonderful combination of pinks, greens, white, cream and brown to offset the black and white photos of her son laughing hysterically.

The next layout we have to share today was created by Mirielle.  She used a combination of Ad Lib, Blast Off, Barefoot & Bliss and Welcome Home.  Again she looked through her stash and put together patterns and colors that coordinated to help tell the funny story of her son being called a train by his little sister!

The final layout we have to share today is from Samantha.  Look closely and you will see that she has combined Cambridge and Garden Girl! Who would have thought that such a masculine line would compliment the more feminine feel of Garden Girl, but they go perfectly to highlight this photo of her son and his grandma!
