Monthly Life Album

In keeping with the spirit of project life, I've created a 
"monthly life" scrapbook album/journal using Bella Blvd's new

This sheet of Daily Chevies double-sided paper was my inspiration:
 You can preview the entire collection on the blog --here--

With all of the ‘collage’ making software available today, I thought this album would be
 a fun way to showcase a small collage (or single) photo that reflects the highlights of each month.
I pulled various seasonal components from new and previous Bella Blvd collections.
The “Daily Chevies” cut-out cards featuring each month of the year were the inspiration for
creating this type of album. These cards are also perfect for your 3X4 page protector sheets too!

 If you are a collector of Bella Blvd goodies then this is a great opportunity to mix & match
from previous collections, as well as new...that's one of the beauties of Bella Blvd!

♥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.
