Mix It Up!

Have you ever noticed how some collections work really well with others?  I for one just love mixing and matching paper collections and embellishments.  Not only does it give projects a new and interesting look, it helps stretch your supplies further.  Today we have two amazing projects to share with you inwhich our design team members mixed and matched a variety of Bo Bunny products.  First up is the gorgeous fireplace banner....
