Newton's Nook October Reveal Day #3

Happy Wednesday and Welcome to Day #3 of the 
Holiday Release for October 2014

Today's stamp reveal is "Flaky Family"
The possibilities with this stamp set is just too many to list!
My first thought:  those personalized clay ornaments that you find 
at the mall or at a craft fair?  That is the look that I was going for,
but on a card instead. You could easily transfer the idea to an ornament though!

I selected a snowman/woman to represent each member of my family :)
I stamped them onto smooth, white cardstock and then trimmed out.
Next I decided the placement for each onto the blue striped background paper.

You can add some shading to the snowpeople with a dab of grey ink and 
a dauber or sponge.  For the faces I used pink chalk for the ladies' cheeks
and an orange pencil for the noses.  

The ribbon (by Martha Stewart) completed my sentiment and blends
in nicely with the beautiful base paper by Authentique!

♥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!

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.
