Spiegelmom Scraps & Creative Embellishments Blog Hop!

Happy March everyone!  Welcome to the Spiegelmom Scraps & Creative Embellishments Blog Hop!  The Sparklers and I have created a ton of fun projects for you using goodies from the SMS shop AND from Creative Embellishments!  You should have arrived here from Maggie's blog!  I'm sure you enjoyed her layout!  Remember, if you get lost along the hop or want to find out all about the exciting prizes for the hop, head back to Spiegelmom Scraps blog!

For today I created an 8.5x11 layout using scraps from my stash, new goodies from SMS and a gorgeous dragonfly laser cut chipboard from Creative Embellishments!  Here it is:


I started with a piece of 12x12 American Crafts textured white card stock.  I cut it down to 8.5x11.  I  printed out a 3x4 picture of my youngest daughter at her sixth birthday and got started!  


I stared by creating my background.  I used a light purple Gelato and three different Shimmerz Creameez in Piggy Pink, Refresh Mint and Get Glowing.  I used the packaging technique with the purple Gelato and made big splatters with the Creameez.  I then added Sea U In The Morning' Dazzlers with a putty knife and a Heidi Swapp stencil.

 

After my background dried, I layered different colored papers behind my photo.  I also added a white lace paper doily.  I filled a small glassine bag full of the new Spring Fever sequin mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine.  I tucked it behind my photo.


I added my title using Page Evans word Thickers and some old Dear Lizzy enamel Thickers.  I stamped the date on with my Pebbles roller date stamper.  Then I added a few enamel dots and Kaisercraft gems.


I used Tombow Mono Multi Adhesive to adhere the amazing Flourish Dragonflies from Creative Embellishments!  I love the look of the raw chipboard, but they can also be painted, stained, inked, embossed and so much more!  The possibilities are endless!


I finished my layout with a quick boarder on the top edge and a small embellishment cluster.  I used my WRMK tab punch to make a glitter tab and added a small gold paper clip and a tassel from Maggie Holmes Gather.  I placed a tiny word sticker from the reset Girl and a gold conversation heart from Cute Girl.  

I hope you have enjoyed my project for the hop!  Next you are headed off to Sarah's blog!  Don't forget to comment on all of the blogs for a chance at a $25 SMS and a $30 CE shop credit!!!
