Peppermint Love

♥ Happy Tuesday ♥
It's been a busy, busy past few hops, getting acquainted over at The Nook, completing a few Design Team projects, several items made for Dot & Whimsy...and phew, I'm whipped...but lovin' it!
I got my Fall/Halloween goodies out this past week.  One of DH's friends brought me three bundles of corn stalks a couple of months ago...just need to get a scarecrow, some colorful mums and a few pumpkins and I'll be set to decorate the front porch and back patio.  Thank you, God for FALL ♥
Okay, so I'm diverting a bit from my raves of Fall.  As promised yesterday, I have a couple of next things to show you;  all from the Peppermint collection by Crate Paper.  What a load of retro and nostalgic F-U-N.
You can pick up your own Peppermint loot from Your Scrapbook Stash;  Erica always has the best deals and coupon codes for any of your purchases.
Here we go...first up is a card that I created for the Gallery at YSS
Every single thing was from the Peppermint Collection except for the crochet trim, felt snowflake and baker's twine.  I alternated chipboard snowflake rounds with a couple of the domed Sew Brads.  Santa's 'buttons' were cut from the pom pom trim.
This little album is chocked full of goodies...I even staggered the pages to create even more interest. Isn't the snowman the sweetest? I ♥ his smile!
I also scrapbooked a double-page layout from Peppermint, but I'll have to wait and share it once it's been pubbed on YSS Blog :)

I Heart {Ippity}
I got my newest stamps from I Heart {Ippity} this last week...yay!  Always wanting to set out to do something 'different', I came up with this card, which folds from the top. The flower and "faith" stamps are from the Faith Blooms set by Ippity (Unity Stamp Co.)
I like that it's simple and I like that it's shabby...enough said *wink*
I'll be back in a few!
Take care


  1. Every one of these projects is sweet and inspiring!

  2. Your mini is gorgeous. You always find just the right paper for your projects! This is amazing!! I love your card to and I like how it opens from the top! Great job Shellye!

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥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.
