Mixing Old with New Glitz!

It feels like yesterday that I just received a box of Glitz goodies containing the Cashmere Dame, Yours Truly, and Hello Friend collections.  And then soon after, another wonderful box arrived that had Color Me Happy, Uncharted Waters, and Love You Madly.  Not to mention the stash of all the older lines I have, too!

So its time to put these collections together and MIX AND MATCH some of that old with the new!

Look at these two characters!  Kyler is starting to copy EVERYTHING Charlotte does, especially the things she's NOT supposed to be doing!  I love when they laugh and play with each other.  I played around with some photo actions and adjusted some levels to give this softer feel to my photo and to tone down the colors a bit.

I cut the white heart of the paper and just left it like an open die cut.  You can see in the background I used the woodgrain Roller Doodle stamp and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I layered a Glitzer sticker, a Giant Rhinestone, and some washi tape, each from a different collection!

A few little banner pieces, bits of garland, and some rows of machine stitching for texture.  There are 5 different collections just in this photo alone!  :)

Navy has been one of my favorite colors to work with lately.  I took a floral print from Uncharted Waters and found that some prints from Yours Truly and Beautiful Dreamer were perfect matches! 

A few months ago, Charlotte started saying that EVERYONE was her "Best Friend Ever".  Well how perfect is it that there is a sticker that said that in the Hello Friend collection.  And of course, this photo is of her and her BEST FRIEND EVER, Froggie.

Again, some more stitching for texture and interest, and a Rhinestone just because....

I used some stencils and navy and teal colored inks for the flowers on the right side of the photo.  Some stickers layered and pop dotted off the page.  Items from Beautiful Dreamer, Yours Truly, Hello Friend, and Love You Madly!

And finally a stitched Peek-A-Boo with a layered sticker.  4 different collections here:

Mixing and matching is so much fun.  I literally pull out a whole bunch of things that will go together and then narrow down my choices until I get a good mix of collections, but that will work great together on a page!
