Mix & Match – mixing it up !

Kaisercraft’s Mix and Match collection is a neutral Kraft based collection, with pops of red, white and black which give the collection a modern, graphic feel. Within the collection the mix and match potential is self evident. However, what I love about this collection is how easy it is to mix and match elements of this collection with other Kaisercraft collections as well, for a completely different feel.

Although I love the modern graphic design, and the red black and white on Kraft, I thought it would be fun to mix up some of the collection with a softer, pretty papers, so for my layout I chose to mix the neutral kraft with papers from the Be-you-tiful collection.

Here’s the result:

P1160667-1I used the small hexagon side of the Lace paper for the background. It’s a lovely subtle pattern upon which to layer other papers and embellishments.

The roses are all fussy cut from the 12×12 papers in the Be-you-tiful collection, and some of the diecuts are also from that collection. However, by sticking to the Kraft and white elements from the Mix and Match sticker sheet, and the Mix and Match doily sticker sheet, I was able to incorporate embellishments from that collection also.

I’m really happy with this layout, and I love how adaptable the Mix and Match collection is.Other collections I think it would work well with are: Storyteller, Something Blue and Limelight.

See you soon,
