And Everything Nice

Sugar and Spice that is ♥  I got in a couple of hours at the scrap table yesterday and came up with this sweeeet little mini album entitled "Sugar and Spice"  I love the Emma's Shoppe papers from Crate Paper; they have a beautiful vintage feel that I often look for when creating minis.  I painted the Maya Road chipboard in a buttercream, spritzed with Maya Road Silver Mist and then distressed the edges just a bit with a walnut ink.  And can you believe that I did not use my sewing machine once?!? Instead of stitching the papers, I added a border of baker's twine around each photo mat...you know I'm lovin' some twine!  Plus I just added three new colors to my selection: orange/black, red/white and black/white.  I also used my brand new Sizzix 3-D flower die...I'm lovin' some 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby too :)
Here's a peek at my newest album...on sale now at my Dot & Whimsy shop

Several projects on tap for the remainder of the week!  Paper Issues will be having a new Link party, so be sure to check it out.  I'm always, always amazed at the talent displayed there♥  My "Beach Dude" layout was also featured a couple of weeks ago...very excited!   I have a couple of layouts to do for Your Scrapbook Stash...I'm getting to play with a couple of Echo Park's new paper line (Country Drive, Splash and Summer Days).  Today I'll be working on my "Stash Fav"...hint: journal cards and the numerous things that you can do with them.  Journal cards; they're NOT just for journalin'! Stop by the YSS Blog and take a gander at what the other DT members are sharing :)
Have a TERRIFIC THURSDAY!
