Pinterest Inspired Thursday

I love this week's Pinterest Inspired Challenge at

And everyone has a stash of paperclips laying about, so why
not dress them up with buttons, resin pieces, ribbon, washi tape, etc.

I have been wanting to create a card with this stamp and the inspiration photo harkened 
me to try stamping the leaves onto some of the Designer Tape! I placed the strips onto
 white cardstock and then stamped the image sporadically several times over the tapes. 
Next, I hand-cut the leaves and added a small foam adhesive square to the back of each. 
After stamping the entire image again onto a white cardstock, I placed the matching
 leaves over the design. For extra detail, I embellished a plain paper clip with a 
Button Market button and a high tack adhesive dot!

 Supplies: Max: That's My Boy; Family Forever: Candid Cards; 
Button Market: Masculine Mix; Design Tape: Pickle Juice Chevron, Pickle Juice Dot; 
Unity Stamp: Leaf Without You

While looking through the Max Collection, I was drawn to the various star stickers
 found on the Treasures & Text sheet. I added them to a paper clip with a
 high tack adhesive dot and then clipped them to the side of the paper swatch. 
I let the Border paper do most of the work and only accented further with
 some hand-stitching at the top and a crochet heart.

 Supplies: Lucky Starz: Carrot Starz; Max: Borders, Treasures & Text; 
Crochet Hearts: Saltwater; Button Market: Masculine Mix

There are two really neat-o layouts using this challenge up on the blog as well
I hope that you have a very fabulous weekend, friends!


  1. Super Terrific cards - your use of clips on each of them is so different but helps complete the look of the card!! You just have a knack for making things look so clean and polished! I would really like to share my blog with you - it is I know you are incredibly busy but I would be so honored if you could come by and look around and tell me what you think!! Thanks and have a day as beautiful as you are!!

  2. Awesome cards! I love the way you made your own clips! I gotta try that! I especially love your first card (such pretty colors)--I pinned it over at the Bella blog earlier this week. ;)

♥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!

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.
