Sunday Swing & Halloween Bling

Yesterday was my turn at the blog of 

I love the new papers that can be found under the “Garden” section 
of the Vintage Street Market Shop.  
I paired up the pretty print, Engraved Garden by K&CO with the
…I think it coordinates beautifully!

 I also used an Olive Paper Bloom by Kaisercraft, as well as a couple of paper 
blooms from my stash.  I slipped in a scrap of paper behind two of the
 Metal Label Holders and used the Making Memories Alpha Stickers to play out my description. 
 The sweet vintage-inspired cut-out cherubs sheet can also be found HERE at VSM!

I used a couple of different sizes from the Lifestyle Crafts Lace Nesting Dies
 to give the layout more interest, texture…and plus I just think they’re fun!
 A couple of old buttons, chip letters and some twine from my stash completes the page.

 Halloween fun ALERT! 
 Let me say that I have had sooo much fun crafting with the assortment
of vintagey Halloween goodies from Vintage Street!
  I adore anything that replicates the Halloweens of yesteryear…
the Happy Haunting- Halloween Greetings from Graphic 45?
 Just perfect for making-up cool little wall-hangings or tree ornaments
 or gift tags…lots of possibilities!
For the base, I used a chipboard page from a Maya Road album,
 painted it black and then glittered.  I added the cut-out with foam tape
and then trimmed it with aqua tinsel.
 I found a few fabric flowers in my stash and added those to the bottom,
 along with a couple of vintage tickets hosting “Happy Halloween” using
Making Memories Alpha Stickers.  For the hanger, just string through a bit
of black twill and you’re set!

I have a few more close-up photos up at the
Vintage Street Market Blog.
If you love vintage, then you'll love Vintage Street!

♥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.
