Sole Sisters Release Party

Yep, I'm blogging bright and early this morning.
It's my turn at the Imaginisce Blog today!
Design Team members are sharing their {Sole Sisters} projects throughout the's so interesting to see how each person has designed with this bright, whimsical, purse embellished, shoe diva-licious collection.
Just a couple of samples from the paper line:

My first project:  I took an old ( vintage old) puzzle can and covered it with patterned paper and then embellished.  It's In The Bag?  Yes, it's a place to stash my 'extra' change in saving for a new Vera Bradley bag...a girl can never have too many bags, right? :)

The Sole Sisters Collection is chocked full of embossed stickers, chipboard accents, fabric embellishments, cute snag 'em stamps and so much more!

My second project:  a gift card/money holder.  I constructed this from two standard shipping tags that I glued together...perfect size for gift cards.  You could attach this to a gift bag or enclose in a small envelope for giving.

I added lots of my own personality to this one!  First, I used the purse motif Snag 'em Stamp of which I inked with a craft pen and then added sweet red glitter for the dots.  I hand-cut the flowers from the paper sample above and even watercolored the leaves.  Then I inked the entire project in a walnut stain.
Oh and I centered each flower with shimmery I Rock gems!

My final project for Release Party Week: why a layout of course!

Again, I hand-cut the flowers and watercolored the leaves.  I also used the I Rock gem setter to add those cool black colored rhinestones with.  The I Rock is my new BFF :)

But you need to see ALL of the amazing projects created with the Sole Sisters collection!

And more importantly, leave a comment and you'll be in the drawing to WIN this collection for your very own!
I received so many lovely stamps this month from I Heart Ippity that I had a hard time deciding which design to go with first.  And I wanted to change things up and craft something other than a here's what I came up with:

I painted a 4x4 canvas block in a yummy buttercup and used the beautiful Farmhouse papers and stickers from October Afternoon.  I added several vintage buttons, crochet trim and twine.  I have it hanging in my craft makes the perfect accent to a collage that I have hanging above it.

Okay, a few chores to get done around the house!
I'll be back a little later on to share my newest listing at Dot & Whimsy.
Have a Terrific Thursday

♥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.
