BLOG HOP: Basic Grey, Glue Dots, and Lindy's Stamp Gang

Hi everyone!
So happy you can join us today for this super exciting Blog Hop brought to you by Basic Grey, Glue Dots, and Lindy's Stamp Gang products.
I had a super fun time creating my project, and I can't wait to see what all the other designers were able to create with all the great products we had to work with.
I created a 12 by 12 scrapbook layout using Basic Grey's new Carte Postale paper collection. It's the perfect paper collection to use for all your summer travels. I made a detailed video tutorial on how this project came together, and in it, I show you exactly how, and which  products I used (video at the end of this post).
I created a lot of texture using my distressing tool, as well as some the Lindy's Stamp Gang stains, and embossing powders. All the different Glue Dots products I used made the layering of product on my layout much easier, and you'll see what I mean when you watch the video.
Here's what I created:

You  can see the color and texture created by the Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder, and sprays (the word First was sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Startburst Stain in the color Tibetan Poppy Teal, the word Flight was sprayed with Lindy''s Stamp Gang Flat Fabio in the color Magical Mai Tai, as well as the color Tears on My Pillow Tangerine. Flight was also lightly embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang's embossing powder in the color Cleopatra's Copper. The journaling you see in the background was printed on my inkjet printer, and embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang's embossing powder in the color Magic Moon Pearls).
 I cut out many images from the paper collection and layered them as embellishments on the page, using several kids of Glue Dots: mini, XL sheets, lines and pop up 3D dots.
I also drizzled/dripped some Lindy's Stamp Gang's Startburst Stain in the color Teeth Chattering Teal, in the background of my layout for another layer of texture. You can see the wonderful teal shimmer showing through the white stain, in the picture below.
I used Basic Grey acrylic stamps from the Hello Collection, to add the date, and design on the small white banner I added towards the bottom of the layout.
Please watch the video below for more details on how this layout came together. The links to the blogs participating on the blog hop will be listed below the video as well, so go and visit each link so you can take a look at what all the other designers  have created, and get in on a sweet giveaway.
