Mummy is the Word

  Authentique Paper and Petaloo have teamed up over the week to 
 bring you tons of inspiration using
 Authentique Paper and Petaloo products!
I've been a Petaloo fan pretty much since it's inception, 
so I was pretty much ecstatic when it was announced that we 
would be creating with Enchanted & Petaloo! 
I love a mini. 
 I just get a kick out of starting with a blank album, covering it with pretty paper 
and then embellishing it to the hilt with fun stickers, ribbons and embellishments. 
 It makes this girl *happy!*
 I started with a scrolled album from KaiserCraft, which I covered in different
 patterned papers from the Enchanted Collection.
The front cover, to me, is like designing a card.  
You want the WOW want to invite peopleinto your album :)
 So I always spend a little more time  trying to get the cover just right. 
 I layered a couple of different sizes of ovals (covered in Enchanted) and
 then embellished with the totally  adorable ghost and spider from
 Petaloo's Mummies Dazzlers and flowers from FloraDoodles 
Mixed Blooms-Sienna and Black Beaded Peonies.
 Using Authentique's cardstock sticker shapes and sentiments
makes mini album making fun and easy!
 Velvet Hydrangeas?  Yes, please!
Black velvet just screams Halloween...and Elvis paintings
(sorry, I couldn't resist!)
I created small photo mats using strips of various
Enchanted papers, which I simply machine stitched into place.
 On the final two pages, I added the top of a cupcake
pick and a 3-D brad, along with Enchanted 12x12 Detail Stickers.
I like to 'hide' the edges of thick album pages, so I applied
a thick orange jute around the perimeter.  A gingham bow to
the ring completes the mini album and is ready now for photos!
There is a Giveaway of an Authentique Prize Pack!  
Just go to the Authentique Blog and leave a comment on each day's 
post from this week.  Also, the designers from Petaloo have some
very amazing projects that they're sharing as well.
Good Luck!
Here's wishing you a very wonderful weekend!

♥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.
