Simple Pleasures

 are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration!
 Both companies are offering a sweet prize, so be sure to stop by and say "hi!"

 Oh boy do I love making some 3D projects!
I am definitely not a flat crafter so Therm O Web's 3D Foam Squares are a favorite friend of mine.
I was also very pleased with the outcome of their Gold Glitter Dust,
 which adds just the finest sprinkling of shimmer.  
For my project today I've combined pieces from the new Seasons: Summer collection, to create a little hanging for the door or wall.  Seasons: Summer is a petite collection and follow-up to Seasons: Winter and Spring.
To get started, I took a scallop chipboard sheet (from a Maya Road chipboard album set) and painted it in a warm yellow acrylic paint.  Next, I distressed the edges by dipping a sponge with ColorBox Mudslide ink and then wiping it across the edge.

 Shake the can of Glitter Dust well and then lightly spritz the chipboard.  I love that the sprinkles are random and not overly's just right for a project such as this.

I used the larger 3D Foam Squares on the paper piecing, the round sticker, and the sentiment.  For the leaves and the small hexagon pieces, I used the small 3D Foam Squares. Yes, I believe in using a lot of foam!

Although you can't see it very well in the photos, I did lightly spray the hexagon cut-out shapes with the Glitter Dust before adhering them to the paper.

I like using a thin ZOTS for things like ribbon, bows and sticks!

  Now it's all done and ready for hanging or gift-giving!
I also love to attach hangers like this to a plain grapevine wreath and hang on a door (covered and safe from the elements).  You will love Seasons: Summer...I can't wait for you to see it all!

♥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.
