Country Christmas

I have a new mini album to share that I made with 
Take a look at all of the exclusive Top Dog Dies, as well as other dies that they carry at

The sweet collection is one that We R Memory Keepers put out last season...I love it!
If you like a country-Christmas feel then you will love the Yuletide Collection.

I cut all of the jar shapes from a medium-weight chipboard and then different patterned
papers.  For the cover, I used the banner portion of the Finishers Die Set, along with the
large doily from the Cherish Doilies & Tags Set.

The inner pages were  mix of patterned papers cut into mat-sizes, as well as different
die-cuts, journal cards and stickers from the collection.  

The Mason Jar Album Die measures 4 5/8" x 7" and is steel rule.  
Top Dog Dies steel-rule dies are compatible with most table-top die-cutting machines including
 the Sizzix Big Shot, Tim Holtz Vagabond Die-Cut Machine by Sizzix, Provo Craft Cuttlebug
 and Craftwell eBosser. View Machine Compatibility Information.

I hope you have a great weekend!

♥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…

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.
