Unity {Inspiration}

Welcome to this Thursday's 
and the release of several new Phyllis Harris stamps!
You will see a lot of sweet examples today with the new images...I had to work ahead
early so I went with the April Kit-of-the-Month for my two cards :)
First order of business though:
**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**
A $20 Unity Gift Certificate will be awarded to THREE lucky commentors, so be sure
to say "hello" before you leave each blog!

I was so excited to try out my brand new polka dot embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts!
And I just happened to have the exact size circle punch for the touch of black.
For those gorgeous red lips, I stamped the image with Martha Stewart's Glue Pad 
and then glittered with red.  I hand-cut the lips from the red cardstock and then attached it
to the white paper with foam dots.

 I love these wedding bells...they're so nostalgic and remind me of a 1950's wedding.
I stamped the bells onto a white and light blue textured cardstock by American Crafts.  
After cutting the bells from the blue paper, I glittered the one side by using a fine-point glue pen
(Martha Stewart) and then sprinkled with silver glitter.  By using the fine-point pen I was able
to dot a couple of the areas with glitter on the other bell.

♥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.
