Here is the blog list for today's hop:
My project for today was inspired by a new set of snowflake molds
by WOW! Embossing.  After watching a couple of tutorials, I decided that adding
push-pins to the backs of the resin would make a cute gift to put in my daughter's stocking!
She has quite a collection of cute push-pins for her corkboard and she will love these :)

 As you can see, I also made up pins using layered buttons and die-cut corrugated snowflakes.

I assembled my supplies from WOW!: Melt-It Powder; Pastel Blue Embossing Powder; Mold

This is such a cool concept...and if you've never experienced WOW! products, be sure
to check out their website and see if it's for you!  
Before getting ready to melt your powder, you will also need:
Pie tin, spoon, heat gun and a clothes pin or oven mitt

The ratio that I used for my Blue Snowflakes was 4:1 (melting powder to embossing powder)
1- Mix the two together in your tin
(create a 'spout' at one side so that you can pour the melted resin into the molds)
 2- Place heat gun under the tin and heat for approximately 2 minutes or until the powder has
been melted;  be sure to hold the tin with a clothes pin or pot gets pretty warm!
 3- Pour melted resin into each mold.
 4- Press push-pins into the mold and allow to set. 
5- Gently peel the mold away from the resin and you're done!
Again, there are some great tutorials on their YouTube Channel

I created a little banner to go along with my pins:
Banner die by Sizzix and sticker letters by Doodlebug Design.
As you can see, I've used the Blue Snowflake pins to hold up the banner :)

For the black button/snowflake pins, I simply used an epoxy glue when adding the push pin
to the back.  I found the corkboard (all ready in the pretty frame!) at Kirkland's.
I also added some faux burlap bows (by May Arts Ribbon) to the top sides of the frame...
I love how it ties in with the natural look of the corkboard!

That's all that I have to share today...thanks so much for stopping by and participating
in the PaperHaus Blog Hop... your next stop is the AUTHENTIQUE PAPER BLOG

♥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.
