On The Fringe!

Whoot!  I received an email this past week from the editor of Simply Handmade Magazine;  my sweet little crepe paper fringe (Pink Confection) will be featured in the Jan/Feb 2012 edition...I'm just a tad excited wwweee!  I have TONS of color schemes available at my Etsy shop, Dot and Whimsy. It's become quite the popular item with my Etsy customers...I take custom orders too!
 I Heart {Ippity} Time
With my newest stamps from I Heart {Ippity}, I created this clean and simple card.  I love the possibilities with the selection of flowers in this stamp collection, {Flowers + Friends= Priceless}
 I stamped the stems onto a strip of cardstock, then spritz with Smooch spray and inked around the edges.  The flower images were stamped onto distressed scrapbook the look of watercolor without the fuss.  I then hand-cut the flowers closely to the stamped edge and arranged them over the stems. A little machine stitching and sticker letters completed the look.  Yes, this is clean-and-simple to me LOL

Your Scrapbook Stash: An August Layout
On other design fronts, I completed another layout for Your Scrapbook Stash using Echo Park's NEW Splash papers...I've loved using these papers.
Back to the craft room today...Dot and Whimsy is becoming quite bare!  Oh and don't forget to visit Paper Issues;  the latest link party theme is "Let's Ride".  I'm always so impressed by the unique projects that everyone shares over there...many, many talented designers and I'm delighted to be amongst them :)
Stay cool and I'll see you all soon!


  1. Congratulations on the publication, Shellye! I love your "on the fringe" and definitely plan on buying some soon! Especially with Halloween decorating coming up soon. :o)

    Your card and layout are cute, too. The quilted background on your layout is something I like to do in my mini books. I should try it on a layout!

  2. Congrats on the publication! I love your layout and card!

  3. Congrats Shelley!! I love your projects. Your work is beautiful and just full of such great detail and inspiration:) TFS!

♥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

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

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.
