Piecing It Together

I have a couple of things to share today.
It's time for the new Monthly Challenge at Imaginisce!

Here are the details: 
We want to challenge you to use patterned papers & embellishments to create a paper pieced design/project.
  • You can use your die-cut machines, hand-drawn images, stamps, punches, etc.
  • You must use at least 75% Imaginisce product.
  • Upload your entry HERE using the link tool.
  • Deadline for submissions is April 25th, 2012
The Winning Entry will receive:

an i-top 2.0 tool & accessories!

 For my take on this challenge, I used a combination of 
Imaginisce's Makin' Waves and Hippity Hop Collection patterned papers,
the 34mm Brad Daddy Punch, I Rock Tool and Gems
 to create a Spring Door know how much I love 'em *wink*
 I also used chevron ribbon from May Arts, of which the ends I cut using the I-Magicut from Imaginisce.
 The sweet house and clouds are svg files that I downloaded for FREE from :)
 The base of the hanger?  a legal letter envelope from Bazzill!  I just inserted a sheet of chipboard into the envelope and machine stitch around the perimeter to increase the stability!

 Come on over to Imaginisce Blog and link up with us this month!

This week is Easter Inspiration Week as well at Imaginisce.
The Design Team has created some really cute projects to share and inspire you with :)
My card (shown bottom left corner) will be up tomorrow!

And since I'm showing you a little sneak...have you seen the new Summer line
from Simple Stories?  It will make you so happy you'll swoon, so hold on...

Gingham, calico, denim and dots...who could ask for more?
But of course, Simple Stories gives you more with their sweet 'n shabby artwork of
coordinating cardstock stickers, journaling cards, 6x6 pads and clear overlays!
See the entire line right here at Simple Stories!

Off to work on a couple of projects.
I'll be back tomorrow with my Easter card :)
Have a blessed 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

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.
