Today we have more Mixed Company projects for you from our designers including both layouts and cards. I hope you are ready to be inspired!  The color palette of the Mixed Media line is just so great…the pinks and blues and grays with the black accents are perfect for any occasion card or layout.   OH and don’t miss Heidi Swapp’s giveaway..the ENTIRE Mixed Media LINE!

Vivian Keh created a card and layout for us today. Mixing and matching the papers from the Mixed Media collection is easy. Add some hand cut details , stamping, and a gorgeous Moraccan diecut and you have one gorgeous card.

Vivian really plays on the horizontal and vertical lines on this card which make it so visually appealing. The more you look at it, the more  you see!   Notice the hearts on the stamped stentiment?  Yep, she stamped right on the Heidi Swapp patterend paper…loving that!


Such amazing detail!


Just love how the Mixed Company Bouquet patterned paper looks with the Moraccan shapes Vivian created out of  some Whitewash cardstock from her scraps from the card above! She used some super cool shapes from the Sizzix Thinlits Moraccan die to create her own background  for that gorgeous photo.  She keeps your eye moving around the layout with these shapes, some gems and the spots from the Heidi Swapp patterned paper.  A lot of time and love went in to this layout for sure!


And a gorgeous detail!


What an amazig looking detail…LOVING the white on Whitewash!


Here is a great detail that shows how Vivian mixed the Whitewash Core’dinations pieces with some of the patterned papers from the Mixed Media collection:


The Paper Studio – Paper Punches, Gems

TPC – Stamp Set
Hemptique – Hemp Cord Thickers


And who doesn’t love circles, black and white contrasting colors and oodles of texture?  Shaunte Wadley worked her magic on this layout for sure! Shaunte says she raided her stash on this layout but you wouldn’t know it. Mixing up embossing folders and patterned papers for the circles really adds to the interest of this layout. How did she make that circle pattern you ask? Silhouette Cameo with some gray Core Essentials..along with some Black Magic in the title. The background paper is Core Impressions from the Basic Grey Core Impressions line. Add a sprinkling of Queen & Co gemstones and washi tape and you’ve got yourself a great layout.


Silhouette Cuts used:


And Mary Pat Siehl is working some Whitewash love, too! Mary Pat has a unique way of capturing everyday activities and making them look like so much fun!

I loved combining my Core cardstock with Heidi’s wonderful pattern paper.  It proves once again that Core really is the best cardstock!  I first used a 12×12 template and sanded my Whitewash  Cardstock over it.  I love how the image is very light.  I also tore the cardstock to expose the darker core at the top.  Then I layered it on top of some of the awesome Mixed Media pattern paper!  The contrasting prints look great.  For my title  “today” I sanded my paper first and then sanded it before cutting it in the Silhouette (this helps with these delicate cuts).  This layout is a typical day after school- homework, computer games and outside play time.  I love our everyday life!
