SN@P, Crackle, Bliss!

A happy weekend to all of you!  I'm up today at 
SIMPLE STORIES BLOG
  with a trio of fun cards using SN@P, Vintage Bliss and 24/Seven :)  
First we'll start with a "HELLO"

And who wouldn't smile after seeing a bright and cheery Hello from SN@P
 I was so happy that I got to use some of the new Flair Buttons and Chipboard pieces. Simple Stories has hit it out of the park with the addition of these new embellishments!
I love using the Pockets even if there isn't anything 'in' the pocket :) The decorative edge and the pattern lends so much to the design...for this card I simply attached one of the SN@P Label Stickers into the pocket and then added some hand-stitching to the top.  

And how about a "Dream Big" for one of the guys (or girl...but this just looks masculine to me!)

I know I say this a lot, but it's true for me:  
let elements such as 3x4 Journaling Cards do the work for you :)  
Once I've selected the perfect Journaling Card for my card then I move on to pick out stickers, chipboard, etc., that will complete the sentiment that I'm wanting to achieve.
And if you haven't tried it, implement a bit of hand-stitching to soften and add texture.
  There are many times that I don't use my sewing machine, but I still must stitch LOL!

Finally, ahhhh....some "Sweet Bliss"

I absolutely (seriously) had a blast making this card!  After texturing the cardfront with an embossing folder (Lifestyle Crafts), I decided to keep the design cropped to just a circle of beauty.  I used two different sizes of scalloped dies (Lifestyle Crafts) and then matted the centers of each with a circle that was machine stitched in place.  A couple of Chipboard Embellishments and 3-D Layered Stickers and my card is complete!

♥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.
