Pinterest Inspired With Bella Blvd

It's Pinterest Inspired Thursday at 
and we have this adorable, crafty photo as our inspiration:

Here are my two cards based on the inspiration found in the photo:

“Thankful For You” card
I was inspired by the tall, vertical pumpkins in the Pinterest photo, 
so I created a vertical woodgrain panel by cutting three strips, attaching them
 to a square of cardstock and then stitching them together. The strip of pumpkins
 and sentiment was inspired by the small cluster of pumpkins in the photo.

Supplies: Hello Autumn: Trinkets, Treasures & Text, Borders, Day Dream, 
Gatherings, Perfect Pick; Button Market: Wood Mix

“Pumpkin Pair” card
For this card I went for the total look of the pumpkins represented in the Pinterest photo.
 After die-cutting the circle shapes, I inked around the edges with a darker orange ink. 
Next, I die cut the leaves and stem and inked around those as well. I chose to turn
 the larger pumpkin into a jack 'o lantern by adding two enamel dots for the eyes
 and the letter "D" for the mouth. I used a black pen to color in one of the
 diamond shapes for the nose!

 Supplies: Halloween Magic: Pumpkin Parade, Boo Buddies, Hocus Pocus, 
Goblin Treats, Treasures & Text; Hello Autumn: Gatherings 

More ideas are showcased on the Bella Blog :)
Happy Thursday!

♥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!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

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.
