It is up!
My newest project for Little Yellow Bicycle.
Using their beautiful denim and wild-life inspired Saturday's Collection, I again created a mini album...go with what you know, right? :)
When I got my package and started sorting through the goodies, I knew immediately that I would turn this set of 6x6 textured Decorative Cardstock

into the base pages for the album!
When you have beautiful embellishments to go along with the patterned papers, it makes putting an album together so quick and easy.  I have detailed instructions up at the LYB Blog.

If you love burlap, twine, felt, wood and denim, then you will be over-the-moon-crazy for this collection!
I thank the Little Yellow Bicycle team for once again giving me the opportunity to do something FUN with their always wonderful products!
Back tomorrow with Totally Terrific Thursday at I Heart Ippity
and on Monday a few of us from the Imaginisce DT will be featured at 
Becky Fleck's March Page Maps!

Happy Wednesday to all!


  1. I LOVE mini albums and this is a great one! I just had to pin it. Thanks!!!

  2. Whoa... I can't, for the life of me, make a mini that looks anything like a mini and not just like trash. For real. So I'm totally envious of you for making this beautiful piece of art! WTG and THANKS for the inspo! :D

  3. This looks so good, LYB is lucky to have you guest designing for them :) I've got some of those papers and embellishments left from the class kit I got at the LYB class at CHA, need to play with it soon :)

  4. Oh my are amazing! i just love your mini's. The paper has so many fun patterns and just love the rosettes and other gorgeous details!! Love, love this!

  6. Oh gosh! Your project is so lovely and what a great way to display it! The colors were amazing and the layout so fun.

♥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.
