dontcha know?

And be sure to comment as you go...$20 gift certificates will 
be awarded to three lucky commentors!

With the theme being "Brown Thursday" we were asked to craft with Kraft!
When I received these adorable mitten stamps (Big Mitten Background), my initial thought was 
invitations.  I first formatted and printed out the information using Paint program
and then stamped around it :)

To make my mitten even cozier, I machine stitched around the edge.
This stamp is the perfect size for the smaller 4x5.5" envelopes.
There are so many ways to dress up these adorable mittens...oh, and how about
using them for journaling blocks for your scrapbook pages?  Ornaments? Yes, please!

And package tags?  Sure!  Great project for the little helpers in your home too :)
I pulled the To: From: and scrolled heart { stamps from the October Kit of the Month.
 For $1.47 I found the package of (36 count) holly confetti at Wal-Mart! 
A sweet and inexpensive way to dress up your package tags or invites♥

**Now, let's head over to Shemaine's Blog** 
Here is a full list of the hop, just in case something goes awry along the way!
I hope that you have a wonderfully inspired time hopping...I'm excited to
see all of the fabulous Brown Thursday projects weeeeeee!

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.
