Bella Blvd + Hampton Art

We're doin' some more stampin' this week with

Here's the blurb from the Bella Blog:
 For the next few days, Bella Blvd is teaming up with
 Hampton Art Stamps to provide  you with some stamping inspiration. 
Our newest cling stamps (Love and Marriage, Sand & Surf, and Kiss Me)
 are licensed and manufactured thru Hampton Art Stamps. We thought it was only fitting for a 
handful of our designers to team up with a handful of their designers, and see what they
 could all create using Bella’s products and the Bella/Hampton Art stamps.
Visit the Bella Blvd Blog to find out more!

 I've always loved the endearing images that Stephanie creates for Bella Blvd
and now you can find many of them in stamp form!
Today (yesterday on the Bella Blog) I have a sweet layout and binder photo frame to share:

 To begin my layout I started with strips of various Designer Tapes to create a background/photo mat.
I then thought that the Ice Stripe Designer Tapewould make a cute set of clouds.
 I applied the tape to paper and then stamped with black Staz On ink.

 When you're stamping  onto a slick surface, be sure not to wiggle or walk the stamp back and forth
 as you may get a  smudged look; instead stamp directly down and then back up.

 For the border of hearts, I only stamped the image a quarter, a third or half-way to create a staggered look.
I used Color Box's Squash ink for this and it matches the Orange Crochet Hearts perfectly!
Supplies:Love & Marriage: Smokeys in Love; Kiss Me: Alpha+Bits Stickers, Just Write Journaling Stickers; Sienna Chipboard Alphas: Frosting; Ciao Chip Elements: Borders; Designer Tape: Ice Stripe, Piggy Pink Stripe, Pickle Juice Stripe, Navy Dot, Pony Dot; Crochet Hearts: Orange; Hampton Art Stamps: Kiss Me

 I recently ran across a cute idea using binder clips to hold place-setting cards...
I wondered how well it would work as a photo display!

I set out by adhering three large binder clips together by wrapping with a piece of patterned paper.
Next, I made a 4x6 photo mat and backed it with a thin chipboard for extra sturdiness.
After decorating the photo mat, just insert the frame into the binder clip prongs and it's ready for displaying.

For the stamped clouds, I used Bordering Blue ink by Stampin' Up! and plain white cardstock by American Crafts. After stamping the image three times, I used a blue watercolor pencil by Faber Castell.

To make the banner, I took a length of Designer Tape and applied it to a scratch piece of paper and then cut out. I then stamped the sentiment onto it with a black Staz-On ink; this works well and doesn't smudge!

Supplies:Baby Boy: Momma's Boy, Wild About You, Cute Cuts; Ciao Chip Elements: Clouds; Designer Tape: Yellow Chevron; Hampton Art Stamps: Kiss Me, Sand & Surf

Now, don't forget to visit the blog and leave a comment each day so that you'll have
a great chance of winning the "Love & Marriage Collection" Giveaway!  Good Luck!

Hope all of my American friends have a wonderful and safe Memorial Weekend.

♥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

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.
