Totally Smitten

When love is in the air, Smitten by Authentique Paper is the collection to reach for! 
And what's better?
  If you have some of last year's Lovely on hand, then use it to mix 'n match...
they're precious together!
Today I have a sweet little wall hanging made from upcycled packaging
The packaging are two wooden trays that once held wood veneers; they each measure
 3.25" X 4.5" with openings that measure 1.25" X 1.5"
I painted the outside and most of the inside with red acrylic paint. 
After the paint dried, I glued the two together with Aleene's Quick Dry Glue.
Each of the squares were filled in with a swatch of patterned paper from the 
6X6 Smitten Paper Bundle.  I die cut two lace ovals from one of the black background
 papers in the collection and then layered on various stickers/die-cuts.
Because the wood is quite thin, I used a Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the top and then
 strung through some May Arts' ribbon for the hanger. To the bottom, I cut a couple 
of strips of paper into banner shapes and glued them into place.  For a finished look, 
cut a piece of patterned paper to the same size as the wooden tray and attach to the back.
You could also die-cut photos to fit inside of the squares or add dates such as anniversaries, 
engagements, etc.  All-in-all, it's just a fun piece to have hanging around!

♥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…

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.
