Blog Hop ~ SpiegelMom Scraps & Creative Embellishments Product Swap!

Hello and thank you for joining us for this fabulous product swap between SpiegelMom Scraps (SMS) and Creative Embellishments (CE)! I had a great time combining the products from these two companies and hope you enjoy our inspiration! Check out my project and let me know what you think by leaving a comment. Remember, you can win a $25.00 gift card to SpiegelMom Scraps OR a $30 gift certificate to Creative Embellishments just by commenting on all the blogs in the blog hop! You have a whole week to complete the hop (until 11:59 p.m. on March 7) - so it's a pretty sweet way to win some scrappy goodies!!

Now for my project! I've created a 12x12 Family Portrait Layout. When I saw the beautiful little bag of Green Acres Sequins from the SMS shop, I decided to use them as the basis for the colour palette for my layout; so I chose some Kaisercraft papers/ephemera in coordinating colours from their Heirloom collection and a background page from their Basecoat collection to create my layout. I started to create the background using Shimmerz Pasteez in A Little Nutty from the SMS shop along with the CE Crackled Brick Stencil. Then, I did some random stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa Dye Ink and two CE rubber stamps - Tire Track 1 Stamp and Distressed Script Stamp.

I love playing with different textures on layouts, so I've used torn strips of the Kaisercraft design paper along with some torn corrugated cardboard, torn/crumpled Small Glassine Bags from the SMS shop and misted Lace Paper Doilies from the SMS shop to create the cluster behind my photos. I misted the doilies with Lindy's Stamp Gang Mists in Steampunk Sepia and Rusty Lantern Lime. I inked the edges of some of the papers and the photos with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. I also splattered the layout with the Rusty Lantern Lime mist and some Dylusions Spray Ink in Ground Coffee. 

Finally, to embellish the layout, I've used ephemera pieces from the Kaisercraft Heirloom collection, the sequins and Shooting Cork Stars from the SMS shop and two CE chipboard pieces - a Simple Key Hole Plate and Key (embossed with Distress Embossing Powder in Walnut Stain).
Here are some different angles and close-ups so you can see all the details and dimension on this layout!
