Monthly Challenge

Good Morning!
I wanted to share the
 February Monthly Challenge

If you would like to play along, just be sure to use atleast
 75% Imaginisce products
3 different patterned papers
3 different embellishments
and use this sketch in some form or fashion

Here's my take using patterned papers and accents  from the Sole Sisters collection
You have until February 25th to link up your finished project on the blog!
The brand-spanking-new I-Magicut Ribbon Cutter
It doesn't just cut ribbon, it seals it more frayed ribbon ends...say what?!?
Yep, you heard me right. 
No more bottles and bottles of No-Fray for me!
I know there are times that frayed ribbon ends 'might' look cute, but I almost always treat my ribbon ends...this tool will be my newest BF :)

Okay!  I finally have my class for Miss Arts taped and edited.  Alyssa says that my class,
"The Rule of Three's" will be available in March!
The class covers The Triangle, The Grid and The doesn't that sound intriguing?
If you're a little stuck on how to better your scrapbook pages, then this series maybe just the thing to help nudge you in the right direction.
I'll keep you updated here with the exact time that it will be available.

I officially begin my Design Team capacity there today. 
 OH. MY. OH. MY.
Just WAIT until you see what I've made for my back porch eeeekkkk!  I'm in so much love of EAD products.  From vinyl appliques for your walls and home decor, to fingernail embellies, the cutest rubons and many possibilities with EAD :)
So, beginning Monday, February 6th, you will see the EAD Monday Give-A-Way Blog Hop right here at The Papered Cottage.  That's right...a give-a-way every single Monday! YES!
Along with weekly giveaways, you'll see 'inspiring ideas' brought to you by the Design Team through the blog hop.  Trust me, you will be inspired...these gals are super talented and find so many fun and unusual ways to use EAD products.
You will be in ♥, I tell ya!

As much as I hate to...these floors won't get mopped if I keep sittin' here.  Then it's onto some finishing touches on the Miss Arts' class, a birthday card and my next project for Imaginisce.
Much to do!
Hope you have a fantastic "hump-day"

♥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.
