Hello everyone, Anya here with you this morning! Today I have two layouts to share that showcase both the Yacht Club collection by Carta Bella Paper and Pinstripes by Echo Park. When I first looked through these papers, I really wanted to mix them together, because they complement each other really well! By mixing them up, you can get an even larger variety of color and pattern combinations. Two of the possibilities I wanted to share with you today.
I love the retro feel that the Yacht Club collection carries, which instantly reminded me of some childhood memories. For my first layout I chose a red and blue color combination, and used mostly papers from the Yacht Club , and added just a few pieces from Pinstripes, including this fun newspaper print!
I began my layout with Sailing Cards paper. It had a lot of fun squares which was a great starting point, since I didn’t have many pictures to go with the story. I cut out the strip of three squares from that sheet and decorated it with stickers, chip board pieces, and other embellishments.
For my second layout I chose a navy and yellow color combination, using more papers from the Pinstripes collection this time around. I really liked the Lad Plaid paper, and used it at the top of my page, cutting a few globes out of the paper and adhering them with pop dots for dimension.
To finish this page I brought more stickers, brads, and chipboard from the Yacht Club collection. It was so much fun to create these pages by mixing the two collections together. I hope I’ve inspired you to take a look at the collections that are released in the same season and find those that are a good match!
