Happiness, Some Love and Spooky Cats

As the old proverb goes...time flies when you're havin' fun!  I finally got back to the craft room yesterday and whew, I've whipped up a couple of cards, two layouts, a sketch and even an album for Etsy.
After my October kit from Your Scrapbook Stash took a major postal detour, it finally arrived at my doorstep on happy and relieved to see it :)  It's always like Christmas when I rip open the tab to peer inside...this month I was surprised with a collection of Phantom by House of Three and Vintage Vogue by Collage Press!
 I love the way companies are designing papers with an edge of embossed or glittered's like stamping, but it's already done for you.
For my third pop of color (since I design in three's) I used some lavender brads from my stash AND a couple of the sweet Chipboard Pops from the Vintage Vogue kit! And I'm now addicted to making medallions, just so you know.
I have an adorable layout completed with Vintage Vogue;  as soon as it goes live at YSS's blog on Friday, I'll share here...along with a cool sketch by lil old me.

I HEART IPPITY me some new stamps this week!  
Time for...friends & wine IPK-156
While I had my Vintage Vogue papers still out, I thought they would look cute paired up with one of the 'girls' from this stamp set.
Tomorrow is Wednesday Wowsers over at I Heart Ippity Blog...check it out♥

Things are humming right along over at the Nook forum...never a dull moment...always tons and tons of inspiration and chat.  I ♥ The Nook :) I'm still churning out the cards using the October Kit...can I just say that it's going a loooonnnggg way!  
This is a card that I crafted using a sketch by Danni 
 I've just listed this beautiful mini album at my Etsy's a little peek...

So, next on my agenda is a project with the Hello Fall from LYB!  I will work on this tomorrow...hint...I will be incorporating something from my yard :)  Can't wait to share it with you.

Take care!

♥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.
