Love My Tapes + Peaceful!

Yes, Thursday was a busy day!  
I'm so crazy about this little mini that I made up for the 
(Click the logo to go to Authentique Blog :)

For my mini album, I started with  Authentique's Peaceful and
layers of Lace Dies by Lifestyle Crafts.  Although Peaceful
 doesn't  have a hint of blue throughout the collection, I
 added a mix of blue Washi Tape #001 by Love My Tapes,
as well as a few felt snowflakes from my stash...I think
 that it turned out to be quite lovely!
 I created the banner by folding strips of the washi over a length of baker's twine
and then trimmed the ends with pinking sheers.
 I used a border of Washi Tape #383 (black/white chevron) on page 2 and
covered a chipboard bird (page 3) in the blue washi tape.
 A couple of fun pages using Peaceful!  If you love snow and have lots of snow 
to love, then you must have Peaceful...must :)

A little tab created with washi tape on page 6 and again,
borders of washi on page 7.
I love that mini albums are a canvas for special occasions
or events in your life!  I can just picture this one filled
with the first-snow-of-the-season photos!
Products Used:
Authentique: Festive- freeze, frost, cozy, chill and solitude papers;
 Details 12x12 stickers; Elements 12x8 stickers.
Love My Tapes: Washi Tape #001 and #383

♥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!

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.
