Love & Blessings

Unity Stamp Blog Hoppers
You should be arriving here from the blog of the talented and sweet Renee Aslette.
 Should something go awry during the hop, just head back over to the 

For this hop I've broken out some brand new stamps
that I haven't had a chance to work with yet.  
They've been eyeing me and I've been eyeing them right back ;)

I love any round stamp that can be punched out with one of my circle punches!
The "Count Your Blessings" image is from the
Country Pumpkin Chowder by Jillibean Soup
 I coupled it with different papers and journal spots from Jillibean :)

I've loved this next stamp, "Sending My Love" for quite some time. 
 I made this next card  with a very special friend in mind ♥


 I used a combination of colored pencils, water-color pencils and Zig Markers.
After shading with the colored pencils I went back over with a coordinating
water-color pencil and then blended with water. I was also able to obtain
some shadows and shading with this method as well.
After stamping the main image, I went back and added some red ink
to the 'flag' on the stamp and then stamped the image and cut out.  I love the 
3-D effect that it gives along with the silver brad.

♥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.
