A Christmas Spectacular

Authentique Paper is teaming up Core'dinations this week to 
bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper & Core'dinations products!

 I must say that I always enjoy working with Core'dinations' products!
Not only do they coordinate well with any Authentique collection, the quality and ability to sand, tear 
and distress makes it a top-notch cardstock to reach for.

 For my layout today, I've pulled two of the Core'dinations Neutral 6 X 6 sheets and trimmed 
them down to 4.25" X 5.5"...why this size?  I was thinking of cascading snowflakes embossed
 onto the cardstock and of course, my embossing folder just happened to be this size.  
Next, I cut matching pieces from the "Classic" Joyous paper and adhered them all onto a 
9.5" X 12" piece of black Core'dinations cardstock that was mounted onto a single
 sheet of 12 X 12 Confection paper.

 After some machine-stitching to the panels of paper, I'm ready to being layering!
I went with my trusty doily dies and cut out three different shapes from the black cardstock 
found in the Neutral 6 X 6 pack.  I added a smaller disc of patterned paper to the center of each 
(and I used the 6 X 6 paper bundle for this).  I determined placement of the doilies, 
along with my photos and set them in place.

Finally, the embellishments!  I added some pretty Petaloo poinsettias, gold buttons and a few
 punch-out pieces from the Joyous Collection

I really love the homespun feel of this design and how the juxtaposed panels of snowflakes truly give motion to the page.  If you decide to use a Core'dinations cardstock with a core, you could easily transform the look of your embossed design by lightly sanding over the raised areas!

♥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.

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.
