Patriotic Bella

**If you're here for the Unity Inspiration Hop, please scroll to the below...thanks**

Oooo, all of this patriotic goodness!  Bella Blvd is all about
red,white and blue cards today so stop by and take a gander

The striped and polka dotted Designer Tapes were just perfect for creating the flag for this card. 
I cut a piece of cardstock to 3" X 4.5" and then applied strips of the striped Designer Tape.
 Next, I cut a smaller piece of cardstock to 1.75" X 2", covered with the navy dot Designer Tape
 and then machine stitched around the edges before attaching to the striped piece.
 I kept the design simple by embellishing with a couple of hand-cut flowers and sticker sentiment.

 Supplies:All American: Borders & Cute Cuts, American Pride, Alpha+Bits Stickers;
 Designer Tape: 12mm Combo, Navy Dot

Ever since being introduced to the Crochet Hearts, I've wanted to make a butterfly from them!
 For this card, I took two of the smaller McIntosh hearts and centered them over the journal sticker. 
For the middle of the butterfly I used a snippet from one of the chipboard Icon pieces and attached 
it with a fabric glue. The antennas were formed by adding two pearl stick pins through the 
crochet hearts and then bending them just a little. 

Supplies:All American: Boom Boom Pow, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Crochet Hearts: McIntosh

 And that's all from me today, friends!  Off to enjoy the 4th of July festivities with the fam :)


  1. OMG I just love how you made the flag out of your tape. Very creative.

  2. Wonderful cards! Love that you were able to create the flag with 2 different designer tapes and a butterfly with crochet hearts!

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.
