Collection Collision

Hi everyone! Can you believe it's almost Christmas? Are you ready for it?

Today I am sharing a layout that I made for the BasicGrey blog. I was challenged to use two different BasicGrey collections....I love combining collections.

Here's what I came up with:


I decided to combine two of my favorite collections: Little Black Dress and Picadilly. I thought they went together perfectly, a little neutral with some bright colors.

I created my background with my square punch. I swear, my circle and my square punches are the only ones I seem to use anymore. I just don't usually think about my punches (and my punches are all old). But my good and faithful circle and square punch get pulled out often. I actually should challenge myself to create more with my punches. How often do you guys use your punches?

Anyways...here are some close up's of my layout:


Don't you think the two collections look great together?

Well thanks for stopping in today! :) I'll be announcing the winner for my blog candy in the post below TOMORROW. So you still have time to enter if you haven't yet. :)

This is one good collision. Love what you have done. I don't have a square punch, but now I think I need one. I use my circle punches so much.

This is such a fun layout. I love the squares. Super simple but the finished product is so awesome. I do reach for my punches often, especially the scallop circle, the flourish square and a few borders too. Love them! Merry Christmas!

I just love the tiles you created in the background!! I would try it if I had a square punch (yes, I am totally being lazy!)... Great job, as usual!
