Linked collections and two blog layouts?

Hello, I’m not exactly sure how to even ask this question, but here it goes. My client runs a blog where they feature products and do affiliate marketing.

They would like to have two alternate blog layouts.

Layout one would be a rich text field and at the bottom would be a slider of the different products they mentioned.

Layout two would be a rich text field and after every paragraph would be a product card with a link to the product.

I’m wondering exactly how I would structure this thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to the figma file for a visual reference.

I can clarify further if need be.

Thank you!

What have you tried?

Nothing yet. I’m currently thinking about limitations in the design phase of the project. At first, I thought I might be able to make image, text, and link fields for each product on the blog page itself, but 5 products would make 15 fields a little less than half of the field limitations per collection.

Probably the best solution would be to nest the products collection into the blog collection. That takes care of the product limitations but how do I reference the right products on those collections for each blog page and how do I create an alternate blog collection layout on top of that?
