...that all the papers in a collection paper pad match?

Does that mean that no matter what, you won't be mismatching them if you use several on a layout?

A collection is a great way to mix and match patterns and colors effortlessly.

But it depends on your style and taste because you might not think one color or pattern 'goes' with the others on your page. Personally I am not good at using a lot of patterns and layers so I wouldn't put them all on one page. Other scrappers can mix and match and make it look effortless and intentional.

They should definitely go together easier

I think you should still use design principles on your page such as gallon, pint, quart and small, med and large scale but the colors should all coordinate. that's the point of a 'collection'

Gavinsmom,

Makes sense to me but can you elaborate on the principle of gallons, quart, pint...?

you use a gallon of one color...the main color of your layout or the color you will 'see' the most, a quart of a complimentary color...more use than just an accent but not as much of it visible at your 'gallon' color and a pint or just an accent of a third color...

I hope I explained that well enough...I don't know how to link or I could find some examples.

The patterns may not exactly match, but should coordinate.

...can you elaborate on the principle of gallons, quart, pint...?
As gavinsmom explained, the concept of gallon/quart/pint relates to proportion. Gallon refers to your main color, the one you use the most; quart is the second most-used color; & pint represents a dash of another color. For example: a simple layout featuring one 5x7 photo, white cardstock as the background, red/white striped patterned paper as a photo mat, a red chipboard heart accent, & black letter stickers for the title. Gallon = white; quart = red; & pint = black. HTH.

Personally my taste and style is very different than what is "in" right now. There is no way I would put together some collections on the same page!

I don't think you can assume the papers are automatically going to look good on the same page. They shuts be cohesive and look as though they are part of the sane collection... But that doesn't mean they are Grrr-animals and can be used on the save page.
