Hello Spring!

--Here for the PaperHaus Blog Hop? Click here--

It's all things Flower Box Collection at Doodlebug Designs this week!
For my project, I altered an inexpensive wooden frame that I found at Hobby Lobby.
 For the wooden frame, I used a brown chalk-style ink pad to distress the wood. 
 I found it best to use a sheet of vellum to create a template for the inset of the frame;
 trace onto desired patterned paper and cut out. 

 For added dimension and interest, I trimmed out the inner edge with a strip of patterned paper followed by a border of Bumblebee Doodle Twine (I use a Fine-Tip Glue Pen for this). I added a row of washi tape and strip of paper to the bottom to mimic a ground full of Spring flowers.

  For the focal point, I layered two different sizes of doily die-cuts and then embellished with
 several of the Doodle Pops and cardstock stickers from the Flower Box Collection
A ribbon hanger to the top and it's ready for hanging.
Can you tell that I'm just a little ready for Spring? :)
Many more Flower Box projects to check out at the Doodlebug Blog.
See you tomorrow!

♥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

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

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.
