Scrapbook Skippings Blog Hop

 Hello everyone and welcome to this month's blog hop, aka SpiegelMom's Skippings!   Today is extra special because SpiegelMom Scraps is not only revealing the fabulous new sequin mixes for this quarter, but she's also welcoming this month's Guest Designer, Khristina Sorge.  We are super excited to have her designing with us this month so watch for her first blog hop next week!

Jody revealed the new sequins on the SpiegelMom Scraps blog which you can check out HERE
Your entire line up for today's hop is:

Sarah (That's me, you're here!) 

For today's blog hop you should have arrived here from Jody!    I'm sure you loved her project as much as I did!  For today's project I have a super fun 8.5x11 layout using the new collection from Pink Paislee called Outfitters.  There is a new mix in the shop today called A Day In The Woods to match the line!  Here it is:

I used my Silhouette to cut out the word "Carolina" from an 8.5x11 piece of white card stock.  I then used a few different pieces of patterned paper from the collection to fill in the letters.  I added "North" using the beautiful copper chipboard Thickers from the collection.

I added a couple of Chunky Cork Stars and couple of the Cloudy Days Felties to embellish the title.  I also used the new sequin mix called A Day In The Woods to embellish like enamel dots.

I matted my 3x4 photo of the Blue Ridge Mountains on a piece of Large Glassine bag and backed it with a Medium White Shipping Tag.  I also tucked in a few pieces of ephemera and a metal paper clip from the Crate Paper Poolside collection.

I stamped the date on with my Becky Higgins roller date stamp.  Then I added a few enamel dots, Kaisercraft rhinestones, and a splash of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Black and called it done!  

I hop e you enjoyed my project for today's hop!  Don't forget to follow along on the hop and comment on all of them for a chance to win one of 2 prizes!  One is a $10 credit to the SMS shop or a prize pack containing all of the new July release sequin mixes PLUS one more of your choice!  Now you're headed over to Lea's blog!
