Happy St. Patty's!

We finally made it... 
HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY

I haven't reminded my kids of it yet...I'm waiting until I go and put 
something green on LOL
I'm working tonight, so I thought I'd stop by the bakery and get 
some sweet green treats to share with my co-workers...it'll be Saturday night after-all 
and we need some reason to celebrate since we're working (that's how we see it anyway)
VINTAGE STREET MARKET
It's my day to share at Vintage Street!
This month I did a couple of cards with two totally different looks
...I'm showing my bright side and my softer, more shabby side.
First, nothing says Happy Birthday like a big ‘ole bright card! 
 I adore the nostalgic motifs of the Party Games Collection…it harkens me back to a time when pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey was the thing to do at parties.

I used the cute tag and hand-cut the banner from the Party Games Collection.  I machine stitched the Red Bingo Card onto a piece of Maggie Jane Family Fun paper.  I attached the ‘banner’ to the card front with foam dots, then strung a piece of Red Twirly Twine across the top.  Three dotted buttons give it just the right amount of dimension and personality. 

Next up...I love all things vintage Easter…or as I’ve had to settle for: replica vintage Easter!  I have several glittered yellow chicks sitting around the house and even an old bunny cake mold on display in my kitchen.  When I spotted these printable ‘post card’ prints at Etsy, I just had to have them!  I thought that they’d be so cute paired up with the lovelies from Vintage Street Market


 After cutting out the selected ‘postcard’, I wrapped a piece of Linen Tinted Tape around the edges (as if the postcard had been removed from an old scrapbook and the tape dog-eared).  I then layered it with a scrap piece of scrapbook paper, a light blue Bingo Card, the top part of a Dimestore Vogue Tag and a strip of yellow ruffled crepe from the Party Games Collection.  Next, I added dots of Rose German Glass Glitter to the patterned paper.  I embellished the front of the ‘postcard’ with pearls, paper flowers and leaves (from my stash) and a Pink Twirly Twine bow.  I also added a border of Pink Twirly Twine around the perimeter of the card. I have it displayed in my kitchen hutch...it looks so cute nestled among my other vintage goodies.

That's all for today!  
I hope you find something fun to do this St. Patrick's Day...the gateway to Spring!

♥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…

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.
