Carefree & Epiphany

I'm really excited to be sharing my portion of the
Blog Hop!

First up is a super, super quick and easy project that literally took a few minutes to put together. 
 Now mind you, the bracelet is one that I all ready had...but it was plain, 
so what better way to dress it up than
with a cute little bauble!

 To create the charm, I used Epiphany Round #14 Circle Punch,
Charm and Bubble Cap and a little "peek" of  an upcoming collection, "LIVELY," 
with the adorable bird motif.  Using a bit of jewelry wire, I looped the charm 
together along with a couple of spare mushroom caps and pearl from another old bracelet. 
 That's it!  Hangs just beautifully and is just the right amount of blingage!
Next is a card of Carefree enjoyment!
I love layering...I don't make a card that's flat, so you will notice that I've layered 
several different patterns from Carefree onto this card. I've used a scalloped punch, 
a circle punch and created a little pleating for the ribbon of paper that sits under the focal point.

After hand-cutting one of the Carefree butterflies, 
I embellished it and the sides with three of the Epiphany Bubble Caps
 that I applied to bits of patterned paper.  I use my sewing machine on almost everything,
 but I also added a hand-stitched X and two dashes in black to help establish
 that visual triangle that I'm so fond of.

Authentique and Epiphany both have Prize Packs to give away to lucky
commenters of their blogs, so be sure to stop by (click photo at top) and leave a 
comment if you'd like to participate :)

I'll be back tomorrow with the kick off to the I Heart Ippity Blog Hop!
See y'all then!

♥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.
