Totally Terrific Thursday

Good Morning!
I thought I'd get my bloggin' done early today so I can 
get started on 
"My Favorite Things" Canvas Mini Album from 
 If you love unique project kits, be sure to visit Sarah and The Paper Bakery!


I created this card for my Totally Terrific Thursday project at 
I Heart Ippity, as well as Danni's weekly CARDS Sketch Challenge at The Nook :)

The stamp set is
 Bloom & Simplify 
and is one of the April Releases
I LOVE this stamp set for it's very grungy, scruffy the sentiment 
of the background stamp is truly beautiful and well-stated.
I bring this up only because I've struggled with creating the perfect 'splatter' paint
effect.  The effect that I've always wanted to achieve are big blobs along with 
tiny flecks :)  Add a little water to your acrylic paint and mix.  Test on a scratch
piece of paper before applying to your actual don't want your
mixture too thin.  I use an old toothbrush, but you could also use a stiff 
paint brush or pipette. It also helps to stand back a little more when you're 
wanting to create the smaller splatters.

My Dot & Whimsy shop at Etsy is a sponsor at 
this month!
The Design Team there has whipped up some really amazing stuff!
I sent different color schemes of the
On The Fringe Crepe Paper Trim
and you must, must go and take a look at how they've 
incorporated the fringe onto their scrapbook pages, home decor, baskets and more!
You'll be inspired ♥

♥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.
