Cards With Bella Blvd

Happy Saturday!  
I'm bringing my Bella Blvd "Cards on Thursdays" just a couple of days late to the blog.
It seems like I'll have a dry-run for a few days and then have four different projects up
on the same day I'm trying to spread them all out :)

It seems like squares are all the rage these days and I just had to play along! 
Using a 1.25" square die cut, I created a quilt of colors from the Birthday Girl Collection.
 After mounting them onto a piece of cardstock, I machine stitched down the center of each row.
 I kept the top simple by adding on a couple of chipboard stickers and a "wishes" 
banner under the die-cut shape.
 Bella Blvd Supplies:
Birthday Girl: Celebrate, Party Dress, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Button Market: Pink Flowers; Crochet Hearts: Gulf; High Five Alpha Stickers: Blue
Scallop Die by Lifestyle Crafts

 A small piece of feather gathered and tied made the cutest plume effect to the top of the
 chipboard firecracker! I attached the feather to the chipboard using a Ultra-Thin Glue Dot.
 I built a 4th of July collage using several components from the Alpha+Bits and
Just Write Journaling Stickers. So happy and festive, and I love the idea of displaying it on our
 Patriotic buffet table. Bring on Summer!

Bella Blvd Supplies:
All American: United We Stand, Seeing Stars, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Button Market: Stars; Feathers: Ice

♥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

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.
