Cards on Thursday


The large journaling sticker turned out to be the perfect size for adding the chipboard letters to.
 I layered the "V" by adding a foam dot under the bottom part of the letter and then allowing 
the adhesive to stick to the other letters below it. I hand-cut three of the hearts from the 
cute tree on the Borders & Cut-Outs paper and added then with foam dots. 

 Three "I Love You's" from the chipboard border was just the right length to go
 across the bottom of the journal sticker. 
 A little green bow brings out the color in the bottom border and adds texture and pop!

 I have to say that making this card was so much fun! 
I started with a cardstock paper just a bit smaller than the card-front. 
I then alternated different patterns of the Designer Tapes on a diagonal. 
To create a little extra texture, I machine stitched around the perimeter. 

 Next, a fun cluster of clouds, chipboard sun and sweet flags brought the card to life! 
I mostly love that with this sentiment, it can be given for most any occasion.

 For this card, I started with a lace die that I used to create a shape in the base paper,
 as well as to create background shape for the focal point. After adhering the base paper directly to the card-front, I used foam dots to give dimension to the inset piece.

  A smaller oval shape of patterned paper was attached and then topped with the adorable ice-cream cone cut-out. The small alpha stickers are in a size that's perfect for cardmakers!

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.
