Pinterest Monday

Good Monday to you!  
It's been a few days since I've blogged so there will
be lots of catching up to do this week :)
First I wanted to share my "Pinterest Monday" card with
"Free Fallin" November Kit & Add-On Kit

Here is a look at the amazing geometrical print that we used
as inspiration for our projects today:
 (credit for photo here)

I was initially drawn to the grid created by the small lines and immediately
 thought of using different swatches of paper in the four segments. 
 And of course I love, love, love circles so I went rummaging through the 
Free Fallin' Kit (and Add-On Kit) for round embellishments to cluster together!

 I made the card a 5X7 size instead of the standard A2;  I just wanted more
 space to showcase the cluster of fun as well as the mix of patterns. 
 I cut a mat to 5X7 and then proceeded to layer on the strips of paper.  
Next, I machine stitched the pieces together to give an even more homespun feel.

 I was excited to try out the wood veneer shapes with the Garden Grass ink dauber beautifully!

 I didn't really want an additional sentiment at the bottom right corner, but I did love the
 idea of recreating the bullet points with a couple of brown brads from my stash (there are
also enamel dots in the kit...I just missed them when making my card!)

And if you're interested, here are the November Scraptastic Club Kits!

♥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.
