S.W.A.T Red, White, & Blue Blog Hop

Saturday, June 29, 2013

Are you hopping along this weekend with Practical Scrappers, keep scrolling for the Project Life post and a chance to win some mega good stuff! 

Welcome to the first 
S.W.A.T Design Team Blog Hop

Today S.W.A.T is welcoming our new team with a Blog Hop & Challenge! I'm so excited to be joining this team for another term. There are some seriously talented, beautiful, kind ladies, and you're going to have the best time hopping along with us!

Now let's get to the challenge! This beautiful color palette:  

And here's what I created:

I love these photos from a few years ago as we lit off sparklers. Unfortunately, everyone was wearing every possible color but red, white, and blue. What's a girl to do? Change it to black and white! Now the theme and color of the pictures is in perfect harmony with the color combo of the challenge and this line of paper and embellishments from We R Memory Keepers. 

I used embossed cardstock stickers from the collection all over the layout, but wanted to add a little dimension. So I rubbed a small amount of baby powder on the backside of the stickers to deactivate the adhesive. Foam risers were then added to the back of the banner and rainbow to pop them off the page!

And who doesn't love bunting?! I cut triangles from the patterned papers and adhered them to the page after drawing a line with an acid-free marker. The base set of flags were adhered with liquid glue directly to the page. Whereas the front set were adhered with foam risers. 

So now its up to you to create something using the colors Red White & Blue and link it up at S.W.A.T for a chance to win a pretty prize pack. All entries must be received by July 28th 11:59PM EST. There's a beautiful Pink Paislee Kit up for grabs!
