May Arts + Scrapbook Adhesives

Welcome to Day #1 of the 
Scrapbook Adhesives & May Arts Ribbon Blog Hop
This will be a week long event with only a few stops each day.
Be sure to stop by the May Arts Blog to begin

**Two spools of ribbon and adhesives will be given away to a lucky commentor**

I haven't had the chance to use this sweet winter collection by Carta Bella,
so I thought making a card for the hop would be the perfect opportunity.
And if you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know how much
I all ready love and adore Scrapbook Adhesives!
I use their foam square adhesives like they're going out of style tomorrow :)

I cut the hexagon paper out around the design and then adhered it to the 
snowflake paper with foam square adhesive.  

After applying a length of the border sticker (again, with foam adhesive), I took a strip of
Crafty Power Tape and attached it just above the border.  With its super high tack, this
tape is made for holding items, such as ribbon, in place.

I looped the checkered ribbon by tucking and folding in a haphazard-fashion...just go with
the flow...whatever you think looks pretty :)  Just press onto the tape and you'll have
no worries about it coming up from its position.

I took a small piece of the Crafty Power Tape, doubled it and then used it to attach 
each of the buttons in place.  Done!

♥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

**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.
