A great thing about Jenni Bowlin Studio products is that new lines go quite nicely with previously released lines.  What does this mean for you?  Your stash always looks good and Jenni's classic fresh vintage look never goes out of style.

Our design team crew loves mixing and matching Jenni's older lines with her newer lines and we'll be showing you some examples here on the blog.

This lovely layout is from Celeste Smith:

The most amazing design element that Jenni has brought to her lines is the consistency of colors she uses in each and every line. This makes mixing new and old product a dream. You'll never have a problem matching reds, oranges or any other colors with older product. I don't know about you but the ability to use up my stash and breathe new life into it just makes me happy! For this page I used the new Halloween line - specifically the Jolly Jack paper (the stripe) then I pulled coordinating colors from that paper. First I added the new Starry Night paper from the same Halloween line. I just love the stars! Next I knew I'd find some red, so I pulled the Red Star label paper from the Town Square line and then my favorite orange paper from the Tangerine Dream line!I found it amusing to use a Halloween line to document the ride my kids were on so I added even more whimsy. I took the name of the ride "Arctic Blast" and made it my title using the new Shadow Alpha Stickers in Vintage/Black. Then I dug into my stash and pulled out a pack of die cut journaling cards and punched snowflakes from them. An unconventional color palette for a snowflake layout indeed!As a final touch, I added ink splatters made from the Fountain Pen, Chili Powder, and Chicken Feed JBS for Ranger re-inkers. Instead of misting them, I used the applicator and flicked them on for a more splattered effect. I've been having a lot of fun with this technique lately!

Thank you Celeste!
