Hi everyone!

Did you notice all the cool LOs in this week's newsletter that used elements from different kits! Of course you noticed! They were gorgeous, weren't they! Have you wondered if there were an easy way to figure out which collections look good together? Well, do I have a list for you! (Said in my best Bob the Tomato voice!)
Mandy and I have been working on compiling a list of which collections work well together. This list is just the beginning, and is by no means comprehensive. In fact, we would love it if you could add your own ideas, or experiences if you've already been combining collections.

Wow, what an undertaking that was! No wonder you two have been so quiet!

Wow is right!!! My, that was a lot of work! Now I'll have to go take a peek at all the combos...

Maybe in everyone's spare time we could get a gallery of some type with previews of kits that can go together ;-) (LOL... I'm mostly teasing, you guys work so hard that I don't want to put more on your plate!)

Thanks for your hard work! I have my kits, etc.. sorted by website at the moment. But as time allows, I think I will make folders in those folders to sort by a particular color to speed things up a bit. Color tends to be one of the first decisions I make about a layout.

Awesome list - thank you so much for putting this together! What a task!

Now (well, as soon as I get home), off to look to see what kits I have and which ones I need . . . (all of them, of course)

What a great list! Thanks for compiling it!

It is amazing to me how kits created by different designs will go together SO well!

WOW! I have dreammed this list for so long but did not know how to ask and now...the dream came true!!!

Ah but also remember that you can re-color ANY element!!! Now that I figured out how to do that, I really don't know how to organize. I think I'll keep everything in the folder from the designer but then use my Paint Shop Album to make different collections based on type of element (eyelets, flowers etc etc) , color and "go togethers" based on this list :-)

Wow, after looking over this list time and time again, I've come to the conclusion that printing it out and taping it to my desk makes it extra handy when I'm working offline. I hope you don't mind me printing it out. :)

To have a friend is to have a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold and an extra pair of legs when yours are too weak to stand alone...

I have been living buried in books and writing classes... as an added note I must say that it is rather scary when you start dreaming and all you can see within your dreams is words floating everywhere!
