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 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 :)


  1. This is just GORGEOUS!!! I love the colors and the details are fantastic! Thanks for sharing, beautiful work:)

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
