Cards on Thursday

Time for some fun with Bella Blvd today!
There are a ton of really sweet cards up on the blog today, so don't miss it:

This card takes me back to the days of Jr. High when we learned to weave yarn to make pot-holders! 
After cutting a 3.5" X 3.5" piece of cardstock, I then layered it with strips of woven Designer Tapes.
 Just apply the tapes to a piece of paper and trim; use a tab of glue or small Glue Dot for the bottoms pieces so that they won't move around while weaving. For a finishing look, machine stitch around the perimeter.

Birthday Boy: Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Sophisticates: Sprinkles & Lace Ice; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle McIntosh; Button Market: Blues; Designer Tapes: 12 mm Combo

 Using an oval shaped piece of cork as inspiration, I set out to create this island of fun card with the
 Sand & Surf Collection! Cork can be easily found at any craft-supply store. I love how it looks a lot like a sandy beach. I used strong-bonding Glue Dots to adhere the chipboard palm tree to the side of the cork.
 A perfectly peachy summer card!

Sand & Surf: Surfs Up, Paradise, Borders, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; High Five Alpha Stickers: Blue; Ciao Chip Elements: Borders; Button Market: Tie Dye

Glad to have you here 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…

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.
