A Charmed Life

A Charmed Life
by
SIMPLE STORIES
can lean towards your St. Patty's decor, Spring projects or 
masculine layouts.  I love that it can be used for so many different subjects!
And the colors of kelly green, royal blue and sunny yellow make the collection
even more fun to play with!

First up I have just the sweetest little hanger using A Charmed Life 
 and a few goods from my stash: 
I started with a heavyweight chipboard semi circle that I covered with Happy Times Paper.
 Next, I matted the cute Insta Square with a swatch of the Happy Times (Side B) Paper and
 then attached it to the center of the semi-circle with foam adhesive. I embellished the top 
of the Insta Square with one of the small chipboard flowers and a yellow brad for the center. 

To the bottom, I added some felt flowers from my stash and die-cut a few
 leaves from the Happy.Go.Lucky Paper. Using some fabric glue, I inserted the
 two navy brads into the middle of the yellow felt flowers. A couple of punched holes
 were made and some pretty turquoise ribbon strung through for hanging.

 Next is an easy, easy, EASY card :) 
I think we could classify this as a "5-minute-or less" card! I cut the base paper
 1/2" smaller than the card, which gives a nice border of the card peeking through. 
The heart-motif Insta Square was added with foam adhesive and then embellished
 with one of the Bits & Pieces' tags and a brad.

And lastly a cool frame that I collaged into fun home decor item:
 I started by removing the glass from the frame and reserving just the back piece.
 To it, I adhere a thin sheet of corkboard (you can find sheets or rolls at your local craft store). 

I took a couple of the SN@P! cards and trimmed them down so that they would create
 an even grid of four. For extra interest, I machine stitched around the edge
 of each card before attaching to the corkboard.

Each rectangle was adorned with different pieces from all around the 
"A Charmed Life" Collection! Bits &  Pieces, Chipboard shapes, brads and stickers were added. 

In finishing, I glued on a whimsical bow from some May Arts ribbon. If you're 
interested in creating a perpetual collage, use push pins or removable adhesive 
so that the cards can be changed out with each season!

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.
