Unconditional Love: The Canine Kind

Through February 14th, we're playing with the new
Sweetheart Collection

Who can resist posing with their canine pal? 
Today I'm up with a special layout of my daughter and our beloved Bear on Christmas Day. 
 Sydnee couldn't wait to give him his Christmas treat!
I normally love black and white photos 
(basically because I don't have to worry about clashing colors LOL), 
but to go along with the Kraft look found in the Sweetheart Collection, I used a sepia tone 
for this layout.  I am really excited about the addition of the cut-out journal cards;  for the title,
 I cut one of the cards down to size and then used the Love Letters Stickers to spell it all out!

Doodle Washi Tape is one of my very favorite things and I love seeing them ALL together! 
 So, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 6" X 9" and applied the various patterns as shown...
for extra POP, I added it to the base paper with foam adhesive. 
 A portion of the Valentine Tickets was used as a little journaling spot.

And I think I speak for all of the Design Team when I say that we were MOST
 excited about the Paper Doilies!  Here, I cut one in half and tucked it behind the washi tape panel.
  A trio of heart stickers were placed to create a visual triangle.  I topped each heart with
 a small flower sticker adorned with a Sprinkles center :)

I hope that you enjoy the Sweetheart Collection as much as I do!

♥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

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.
