Mixin' & Matchin'

   **500th POST GIVEAWAY**
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!
We're mixing and matching over at the Bella Blvd Blog today!
It's so helpful when a company uses the same color palette throughout their
collections as Bella does.  I can look for a particular pattern of paper from the
Christmas Countdown Collection without having
to worry if the colors will clash with the snowman from Winter Wishes.

I've chosen up to four different collections and put them into one was actually quite fun!

For this card I stayed with the rule of three ... three colors and three focal points (hearts) that created
 the visual triangle. The crochet hearts alone looked a little lonely, so I hand-cut three of the hearts
 from the Chevy Peep paper and sanded around the edges before attaching them.  

 Supplies:Snapshots: Daily Details; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle Pickle Juice;
 Daily Chevies: Chevy Peep; Play Date: Chasing Rainbows, Tabs, We Are Family Bookplates; 
Button Market: Fruit Punch; Crochet Hearts: Pickle Juice

 This was a quick card to put together and a great way to use up those scraps!
 When working with an A2 card (4.25 X 5.5) just cut four strips of paper to 1" X 5.25". 
I used a square punch (insert tip of paper in at an angle) to create a banner look for each strip. 
Before adding the Flag, I cut it in half on the diagonal so that it would match up with the point of the star. 

 Supplies:Christmas Countdown: City Sidewalks, Captions; Snapshots: My Point of View, Tabs, Paper Pieces; Play Date: Today is Beautiful; Trick or Treat: Happy Owlween; Flags:Sunshine & Happiness; Sienna Chipboard Alphas: Pickle Juice

 More fun ideas up on the blog today

And we're closing in on the 500th Post Giveaway!  
So far I have rounded up goodies from Pink Paislee, Prima, The Crafter's Workshop,
Maya Road, May Arts Ribbon and Authentique Paper...and I'm not done yet :)

♥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!

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.
