A Good Bye

Bittersweet is the moment...
but it's time for a very fond farewell to my friends at 
and to welcome in the brand new 2013 team!

We've arranged a little good 'bye blog-hop and I'm the very first stop
after the Imaginisce Blog :)
Be sure to comment at each designer's blog as well as at Imaginisce's Blog
to be in the drawing for the brand new "Love You More" Collection

We were asked to share a couple of our favorite Imaginisce projects:
Layout using "Monster Mash"
"Love You More" Heart Hanging Pocket
Back-to-School project using "Sole Sisters"
Having been such a huge fan of Imaginisce products for years,
it was a dream come true to be selected for the 2012 Design Team!
I fondly remember that feeling that I got when I read the
"congratulations, you've been selected"
email from Cari...I ran outside in my slippers and started
hootin' and hollerin' (we do that here in Texas LOL)
I was literally, literally on Cloud9 with excitement!

And then the first box of goodies came...oh my  the tools and fun things to play with!
I would have to say that, hands-down, my favorite Imaginisce tools are the
I Top Paper Punches and I Top Tool...but wait, I also love the i-magicut!
Aside from my favorites, I was happy to be introduced to tools that helped to
stretch my imagination and think outside the box. 
As far as favorite paper line?  That's a tough one!
I love the soft, sorbet colors of Makin' Waves, but I'm a total and complete
Halloween freak, so I'll go with Monster Mash as my 2012 fav :)
I do have to say that I'm really excited about the new products that Imaginisce
is bringing to us like washi tapes, buttons and sticker sheets...making it even harder to resist!

Being a part of this very talented team and my first 'big' design team, has been
such an honor and such amazing fun! 
I know that the 2013 team will continue to excite us!
To the fans of Imaginisce, thank you so much for all of the encouraging words
and sweet comments left over the year...they have meant so very much to me ♥

**Next stop on the hop is Tiffany Hood**

Seasons Givings Blog Hop 2020

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥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

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

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.
