My turn for a monthly tutorial over at 
I never really know about tutorials...this may be old news or completely new news to you,
but either way I hope you enjoy the little tut and a few projects with how I used the finished product.

How to make fringe from a sheet of tissue paper:

Here are two really cute things that I did with the fringe...albeit it's a little late for
Valentine's projects, but they could be easily adapted for other fun holiday packaging!
From a 6x12 piece of vellum, I made four small 2.5″ square pockets that I tucked printed Valentine coupons into!  A hand-cut heart and some fussy cutting from other papers added some whimsical charm.  I simply used a strong adhesive to attach the tissue fringe to the bottom of the pockets.

I created a small pocket with the vellum sheet included in the January Paper Bakery Scrapbook Kit.
  I layered on various matted pieces of patterned paper, along with the sweet die-cuts from Pink Paislee!
  I absolutely LOVE how the kraft tissue ties in with the sweet heart stickers, also found
in the kit.

I've had a creative blast working with the February Paper Bakery Kit.  
So full of bright colors that you can't help but *smile* as you there's flair buttons
AND printables that are exclusive to the Paper Bakery...stop by and sign-up 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!
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…

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.
