Hi there! Today I have a layout for you that shows you just how easily you can mix the Maggie Holmes collections! Many of my favorite colors are seen throughout all of the product lines, which makes combining them really easy!! You will also find that you can add some of the tones from the newer collections in with the older ones like I did here by adding in the peaches from Styleboard to the Flea Market papers.
If you are like me, then you have a tendency to hang onto (or hoard) some of your older favorite products! But then it really is a shame to not use them once all of the newer stuff comes out! And that's precisely why I made an effort to design my collections so that you could mix and match them together!
Here I created the base of my page with papers from Flea Market. I did a colorblocking technique where I cut different pieces of some of my favorites and then adhered them on the background next to each other. I honestly created the page base quite a long time ago and then set it aside to work on another project. I sort of forgot about it until recently so I decided to pull it out and finish it off!
This is where the newer products come in. Now that I have all of the Styleboard products in hand, I wanted to play with them on this page and see just how well the two collections worked together! I love the result and hope that you will also give it a try!
I have been wanting to try my bow craft die with the cork paper from this line for a while and I am thrilled with how well it worked! The die cut right through the cork so easily!! TIP >> I added a thin adhesive paper backing to the cork before running it through the die cut machine. The cork can be a little fragile so I definitely suggest this step if you are going to cut it or manipulate it like you have to do when you put the bow together! I left the backing on the pieces and then assembled the bow and I like how the backing adds the perfect amount of stability I was looking for!!
One of my favorite products from the Styleboard collection are the prize ribbon standouts! I especially love customizing them by adding different things to the centers. Here I added a cork seal and then Emily's initial with the gold & kraft typewriter style alphabet.
I would love to see your layouts where you mix and match my collections so if you have any posted you can link them here in the comments! Or you can always tag your posts on instagram with the #maggieholmes tag and tag me as well @maggiehdesign. Also, I have a Pinterest board where I pin others' projects using my product lines and I would love to include yours if you link me to them!
