All American

Have you seen it yet?
The brand spankin' new red, white and blue collection from Bella Blvd?
All week long you'll find loads of cool stuff over at the blog!
I have yet another pinwheel to show ya, as well as a little wall art
that I plan on attaching to a grapevine wreath to hang on one of our doors.
If you'll scroll on down to the earlier post from today there's a quick 'n easy tutorial
for's not rocket science by any means, but I know I was a little
stumped on the actual 'how-to' before I tried it :)

 I used a 12x12 sheet of All American patterned paper for this singular pinwheel. 
For the stick, I wrapped Designer Tape around a wooden dowel and then attached to the back with a high-tack glue. I kept the design pretty simple by layering the center with a die-cuts, stickers and gems!

 Supplies: All American: Seeing Stars, United We Stand, Borders & Cute Cuts, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Designer Tape: Navy Dot; Button Market: Stars

 I took a scalloped chipboard shape and dressed it with All American papers.
 To the center, I cut and traced a chipboard star and then layered it with chipboard letters and cut-out pieces. Hanging pieces like this can also be added to a wall or hang from the knob of a cupboard!

 Supplies: All American: Seeing Stars, United We Stand, Boom Boom Pow, July Sky, Borders & Cute Cuts, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Sienna Chipboard Alphas: Ice; Button Market: Stars; Flags: All American

♥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…

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.
