Bella Blvd Pinterest Inspired

It's Pinterest Inspired Thursday at 

Isn't this a fun inspiration piece?
I'm really in love with anything felt these days...throwing in some scallops
makes it even more fun!  And of course, the colors and amongst my favs.
Here are the two cards that I made using the photos for the inspiration:

I followed the haphazard flow of the pillows in designing this card.
 I started with a very basic background by using two of the grid patterns from the 
Freestyle Sophisticates line. Next, I hand-cut three of the blooms from the Family Forever paper.
 I wanted the flowers to have the appearance that they were just laying on the paper, 
so I only added a dab of glue to the backs of each before attaching. I added their
 leaves to the side, choosing to highlight one of them by attaching with a foam adhesive.
 I scattered the Crochet Hearts by following the pattern of the flowers, 
added buttons and then finished with a sentiment sticker.

 Supplies: Molly: Trinkets; Family Forever: Family Rules; 
Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle Peeps, Freestyle Saltwater; Crochet Hearts: 
Punch, Gulf; Button Market: Pink Flowers

 I love the scallop design found in the inspiration photo; it's so feminine and soft.
 I started by die-cutting a large scalloped shape and then topped it with a large circle
 trimmed in pom pom ribbon. I also kept with the colors found in the photo, which can 
be found in several of the Bella Blvd collections! In keeping with the pom trim,
I added a small white pom pom to the top of the chipboard heart.

Supplies: Molly: Boy Crazy, Peace, Treasures & Text; Daily Chevies: Chevy Peep; 
Snapshots: Captions; Engaged At Last: Chipboard Icons; High Five Alpha Stickers:
 Gulf; Sienna Chipboard Alphabet: Ice

♥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.

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.
