Vintage Blissed

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

Things were vintagely blissful at Simple Stories yesterday as I shared
a fun and girly layout of my daughter.  Vintage Bliss is just the perfect backdrop
for all of those spring-themed, shabby chic, girly girl kinds of projects.  
See it all at Simple Stories:

As with all Simple Stories Collections, you have areas of patterned papers that are pretty well designed 
for you...all you need is a photo or photos, a few cute embellishments and you're done.  
I love that this particular 6x12 Page Element has all ready created my title for me!  

 I cut a trio of butterflies from the Be Happy paper and embellished the centers with
 heart stickers and glittery gems. I needed a little something horizontal to keep up with all of the vertical elements going on, so I cut this journaling block from one of the Journaling Card Elements

And finally, the top corner got a bit dressed up too with a cloud and banner sticker!

Supplies: Vintage Bliss- Give Love Paper; 2x12 Border & Title Strips Elements Paper; 6x12 Page Elements Paper; Be Happy Paper; Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers

Next, I have an easy, easy card that would surely brighten someone's day!
 Again, the Elements papers do so much of the work for you!
  I added a bit of fun detail by stitching on some rays of sunshine with yellow & white baker's
 twine and then topping off with a cute flower sticker.

 Supplies: Vintage Bliss- Teal Chevron/Lined Notebook Paper; 4x6 Vertical Journaling 
Cards Elements Paper; Live Simply Paper; Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers

Vintage Bliss, along with the other Winter CHA Collections will be in your stores
very, very soon!  Don't miss that Simple Stories will also have Decorative Brads,
Layered Embellishments and Chipboard Stickers...I can't wait to see these new pieces myself :)

 So glad you've stopped by today!


  1. This new collection from Simple Stories is yummy --- LOVE the colors! What a great title to compliment that fun photo! And I just love your sweet card!

♥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!

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.
