Circle Challenged

This is post sure that you are a follower of my blog
as I will be giving away a GRAND PRIZE on the 500th post!
(Some of the previous posts weren't numbered right...we're on track now!)

The Monday Challenge at Bella Blvd this week was
"Incorporating Circles Into Project Design"
My personal challenge was using this concept on cards, but you must go by
the Bella Blog and see the great layouts that some of the other girls made!

I love circles and dots, so this challenge was perfect for my collection of round embossing
 folders and punches! First, I embossed the base of the card with a large polka dot folder. 
Next, I took a 1/4" circle punch and punched several pieces from one of the sections of the 
 Daily Details paper. I added them around the journal card with small foam squares. 
Other various-sized round embellishments were then added to complete the theme.

Supplies:Christmas Countdown: Alpha+Bits, Daily Details, Captions; Button Market: Text

 Use a pretty round lace die as the base for your wreath on this card; punch out the center. 
1/2" circles were punched from the O Tannenbaum paper and layered side-by-side onto the
 lace die cut with foam squares. Next I added another layer of the circles so that they were 
off-set with the circles below. Add pearls or rhinestones for a little added detail.  

Supplies:Christmas Countdown: O Tannenbaum, Paper Pieces; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle McIntosh; Birthday Girl: Party Dress; Crochet Hearts: Gulf

The 2013-14 Bella Blvd Design Team will be announced on September 24th!
Keeping my fingers crossed and wishing GOOD LUCK to all who's a fabulous team to be on :)
Have a great weekend y'all!

♥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.
