Vintage Street Market

Happy Sunday and Happy Father's Day!
I'm up today at the
with not one, not two, but three projects!

First up is a layout; an 8×11 layout to be exact!  I found the perfect sketch from
 Page Maps and went from there.  I’ve used patterned papers, cut-out journal square
 and a punch-out tag from the Family Fun Paper Kit.  I also punched out a couple of
 hearts from one of the patterned papers as well!

To create the pleated accent, I cut 2″ x 12″ strip of paper, punched one edge with a
 decorative edge and folded at 1/2″ increments.  Glue the ends together and fan into a circle.
  Glue to the top of a 2″ circle and place something heavy on top until the glue has dried. 
 Vintage Street Market paper is the perfect weight for creating these fun embellishments.

My mom’s birthday was on the 11th of this month and of course she was expecting
 a handmade card hehehe…her expectation I could not let down!

 Once again you see that I’ve created a pleated embellishment.
This time I used the metallic paper from Dimestore Vogue.   To round the edges, 
I used a corner-rounder punch.  For the base of the card,
 I layered patterned papers from the Family Fun Paper Kit and hand-cut 
the vacuuming woman from one of the pages! 
 A little tag from the Party Games collection was attached to the side with a ribbon bow
 and paper flowers from my stash.  With my home computer and printer, I printed 
the sentiment onto the piece of paper as shown.  The inside of the card simply read
 “and have a happy birthday!” 
 She loved it!

 Finally…and I LOVE this…is my Patriotic-decked-out-BINGO-card-hanger!  
I have a small wired dress form on the side of my craft desk. 
On this I like to attach something fun that reflects the holiday or season…
it adds a little happiness to my clutter and makes me smile.

Isn’t it great?!?  Can you sense my delight and love LOL
 And I have to admit, Vintage Street Market BINGO Craft Cards are my favorite product.
 The versatility with the various sizes and colors are endless!  I layered one of the large red cards
 with a medium royal blue one.  From my stash, I glittered a chipboard star and layered
 it with a glittered scalloped circle, vintage milk cap and patriotic embellishments.
 The perimeter of the red card was lined out in Red Twirly Twine.
I'm so happy to add it to my collection of little hangers :)

See you all in a couple of days...glad you've stopped by!

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.
