A Walk Down Harvest Lane

Hello, scrappy friends!
I'm happy to be sharing today over at 
This week's theme is Harvest Lane, which is one
of their newest papercrafting collections.

Here is a layout featuring photos that I took at our town's Octoberfest,
 held every year on the first Saturday of the month.  
 Of course, machine-stitching goes hand-in-hand with the 
cozy, homespun feel of Harvest Lane.  I also added paper flowers,
 a strip of velvet ric-rac and jute-stitched buttons from my stash. 
 By simply cutting strips of patterned papers I created a colorful mat for my photos!

Clustering different stickers along with journal strips, makes layout-creating easy and fun. 
 Keeping dimension in mind, I use both thin and thick foam
 dots/tape in stacking the various elements.

 I wanted a bit of a 'lift' to the leaf stickers, so I brushed on a 
little baby powder to the areas that I didn't want to stick :)

To me, Simple Stories Flash Cards were made for cardmakers!
 Just trim out your favorite design, mat it with a couple of papers and embellish just a smidge...
 For this card, I took two different journaling cards and trimmed them
 from their rectangular size to instead showoff the contour of their trendy scrolls.
  Again, I layered the different pieces with various thicknesses of foam dots.  

I had a couple of felt apples in my stash and thought they would match perfectly with the theme.
  After attaching two cardstock stickers together, I glued them to the apple fronts with fabric glue.
 I really like the way it turned's happy and makes me SMILE :)

♥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

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.
