Sibling Lovalry

I am blessed to have three kiddos who are genuinely supportive of each other.  
With two boys who are very competitive in sports, video games and academics, they have never held a rivalry amongst themselves.  They share in each other’s joy and disappointments…
no gigging or nah-nah-boo-boo…it’s nice!  So, as a tribute to my (generally) sweet kids…

"Sibling Lovalry"
January Paper Bakery Kit Club: Scrapbooking Kit

 I set out to keep things fun and whimsical.  I followed along the natural ‘quilt’ like pattern of the 
Ruby Rockets paper and stitched them into place.  Next, I hand-cut different sized hearts from the vintage ticket and patterned paper.  To the one heart I cut two small slits in the center and threaded through the arrow from the January Svg kit!

 Using the lines on the vintage ticket, I added a little journaling to it.  The other hearts served as a nice backdrop for the woodgrain letter stickers (I LOVE these things…a girl can never have too many alpha stickers!)  A few flecks of Color Shine spritz (Heidi Swapp Primrose) and small adhesive pearls were sprinkled around the page to help highlight the visual triangle.

 It’s nice to have an ‘anchor’ at the bottom or top of your page, especially when the majority of your design is clustered towards the center.  I’ve always felt it helps to direct the eye and grounds the page.  
For this layout, I used a doily border punch by Martha Stewart, followed by a repeat pattern of the ‘quilt’ strips.
I just love this layout and as I journaled…”I just love these people!  They make my heart happy”

♥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!

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.
