"Our Home" layout

Hello.  The last item I made for my recent consultant swap was this "Our Home" double page layout.  I used papers from both the "Rustic Home Fundamentals and the coordinating "Memo Fundamentals" paper packs.

I'm not normally a scrapbooker, so this part is always a challenge for me.  But, I used one of the Close to My Heart how-to pattern books, "Cherish", and it made it that much easier.  I used the layout pattern called "Clear Dimension".  Here's a closer look at the left page.

I cut apart one of the Rustic Home ribbons and made it more like a twine to thread through the letters I used from the Rustic Home Complements.

And of course I couldn't pass up using the new Sea Glass Glitter Paper again.  I also used the new Sea Glass cardstock and embossed it with our new Wood Slats embossing folder.  Here's another grouping of items from the coordinating Complements.

Here's a closer look at the Right side.

As you can see, I used more Complements and I also added a Flip Flap to the vertical photo mat.  If you look closely there is a new PML White Frame Overlay inside the Flip Flap.  Once a photo is added it will have a fun floral border around the photo.

I loved the font of this word "Blessed", so I had to make sure it had a spot on my layout as well.  It's another coordinating Complement.

Here you can see my entire swap.  Our assignment was to make one Double Page layout and 3 cards.  We had other requirements like using at least 3 new stamp sets, using the new Cricut Flower Market cartridge, using one of the new Embossing Folders and/or the new PML Overlays.  We also had to use coordinating ribbons and complements.  I think I managed all the requirements and I'm pretty proud of this round.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Rustic Home items over the last few posts.  I also did another round in this same swap so I'll be posting those soon.  

** I have entered this layout in the "Show us your Sea Glass" challenge over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges. **
