Pretty & Pretty Pink Posh

I had a lot of fun pairing up 
Pink Peonies, Fresh Mint and Onyx Sequins
with the "Classique: Pretty" Collection by

For both of my cards I chose to use the Authentic Life Cards
as my starting points:
For this card, I drew a large S onto the card and then stitched on the 
Pink Peonies sequins with a needle and thread.  I love to hand-sew, so this little project
was very soothing for me.  You can also add the little seed beads to the
 centers of the sequins while stitching.

I layered two of the stickers together from the Details Sticker Sheet and added 'girl' using
 the letters from the same sticker sheet.  Two black flowers from Petaloo and this card is done!

When working with something like sequins, I look for an area that can easily be
 highlighted with them.  On this journal card, I followed the lacy border design.
 I adhered the Fresh Mint and Onyx Sequins with a micro adhesive dot and
then added a small adhesive pearl to the center of each.

Finally, I layered the three stickers together with foam adhesive and added
 a lace bow at the top.
A stick pin by Maya Road completes the card.

I love making pretty, feminine cards...they're even more fun to
dress up with sequins and pearls!

♥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.
