Starry Congrats!

Time to share a couple of cards a la

Blue, Blue Happy Birthday to You!

Birthday Boy: Borders, Toadilly Cool, Streamers, Cute Cuts; Button Market:
 Orange Stars, Blues; Designer Tape: Orange Stripe

I love the 3-D effect that was created by punching two stars into the brown paper
 and then applying it over the background paper with foam dots.
I then hand-stitched buttons to the center of each star and then a round button,
which made a nice bridge between the two!
 A few beads were sewn onto the cupcake to bring dimension to the sprinkles.

 Congrats, Couple 
Kiss Me: Flutter, Love Notes, Borders & Cute Cuts, Just Write Journaling Stickers,
 Alpha+Bits Stickers; High Five Alpha Stickers: Brown-Cream; 
Ciao Chip Elements: Trees; Crochet Flowers: Dahlia;
 Designer Tape: Pickle Juice Dot

By keeping the focal point at the bottom 2/3 of this card really made the other 1/3 look lonely!
When creating cards with cardstock, I like to spiff it up a bit by using an embossed pattern.
A little piece of doily peeking out also helps to dress-up the embossed cardstock.
 For the bottom, I cut various papers into small strips, adhered to a background pape
r and then machine stitched them together.

  1. The top one is my fave! The cut out stars, the pretty blues broke up by the striped yellow pp on the bottom - FAB!

♥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.
