The Snowflake Alteration

We're sharing holiday decor this week over at the 
 So bittersweet as it will be my last project 
as an Imaginisce Design Team member...but a wonderful 
new team has been selected and I'm excited to see what all 
they come up with over the next year!

 I'm a sucker for honeycomb know the tissue paper type
of pretties that you can find to hang from a ceiling or to display as a centerpiece.
I think that they're so whimsical and fun!
So when I ran across this package of three beautifully sculpted snowflakes
at Wal Mart, I just had to put them into the shopping cart :)

 Next, I selected a couple of patterned papers from Christmas Cheer and 
set out to make two layers of pleated medallions.  For the first layer, I cut
two 3" X 12" strips and then scored and pleated at 1/2" increments.

For the bottom layer I cut two 4" X 12" strips and pleated them in the same way.
After both medallions were assembled end-to-end and allowed to dry,
I began layering and embellishing!

I found that the POGO adhesive was the best for adhering the two medallions 
to each other.  Next, add fun die-cuts, ribbon and paper flowers to bring your 
snowflake to life!  
I have this cute little fella hanging from one of my small pine trees beside
the fireplace.  I look forward to creating a couple of non-Christmas ones so
that I can use them throughout the winter months.

I have a yo-yo tutorial up at The Paper Bakery today...come by
and have a look if you have time :)

♥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.

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.
