Handsome Snow Men

Happy Wednesday!
Today I have the first layout that I made with the January Add-On Kit from

We experienced a 9" snowfall on Christmas night-into the day after Christmas this
past year. In all of my 40+ years I don't remember a white Christmas where we
live, so this was an extra special treat for us!  
Of course, I grabbed the camera and got a lot of cute pictures of the boys at play:

I love that the spirograph looking paper from Studio Calico in a way resembles snowflakes.
I cut out several different sizes and added some with and without foam dots over
the top of the layout...tell me that they do look somewhat like snow falling from the sky LOL

The kit also includes the adorable clouds paper, which is new from American Crafts.  
The clusters of clouds cut apart perfectly and I think they look perfect mixed in
amongst the snowflakes!

I cut the large title "Snowmen" with a personal cutting machine and then subtitled it with 
the neat wood-grain alphabet stickers by October Afternoon (I'm addicted to these babies!)
A few wooden snowflakes from my stash ties in nicely with the masculine look of 
the burlap paper by Simple Stories and the three handsome fellas in the photos ;)

The Paper Bakery offers Mixed Media, Scrapbook and Projects Kits!
January's kits are now available and won't last long...

Back in a little bit with an oh-so-sweetttt altered canvas that I made for Authentique
AND one of the very new collections that will debut today :)

♥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!

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.
