maybe it's just been awhile, but I tried it last night and just couldn't get it to look right. I can't remember how I use to do it but I had such a hard time! I've not done a blend in forever. Can you give me any tips for next time?

I just mess around with blending modes (I have no idea what they are actually called...but the ones that are like overlay, soft light, hard light, etc) and opacity until it looks right & erase away any hard edges but it has been FOREVER since I have done a blended photo, to be honest! I'll admit it's not my strength.
That looks pretty good, I think! I usually just mess around a bunch, too, but what I often end up doing is duplicating the layer (even three or more times), and setting each of the different copies to a different blending mode with a different opacity. Sometimes I'll even make one of them black and white or sepia and leave the others in color.
Like, with that particular layout, if you wanted to brighten the blend just a smidge, you could maybe duplicate the layer once and set the copy to Hard Light, but then lower the opacity to maybe 10% or so.
But yeah, the only way to know what works is to just try a bunch of different things. I don't think there's any set method for it.
Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
