**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**

Today, I'm using a couple of brand new stamps.
First, Snowflake Kisses

 (click on the photo to add to your shopping cart)

In preparing my card, I decided to include a few step-out
photos for you :)

 A 2" circle punch works just wonderfully for cutting out your
finished snowflake.  I distressed the edges with a walnut ink.

 Layer onto your card with foam dots.

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 :)

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.
