Winter Smiles & Saying Farewell

Wow, it has been a crazy, busy month, hasn't it!?!
I set aside the day yesterday to take down my Christmas tree 
and decorations.  Of course, in the process you must dust, vacuum
and fluff all of the old stuff that's coming back out onto the shelves again...
I always, always dread packing it all away so I'm glad it's over!
 Now my house looks so clean...and sparse LOL

This will probably be my last post for 2014, so I wanted to send a 
farewell to a few of the teams that I was so privileged to be a part of 
for the past year or two:
DOODLEBUG DESIGN
NEWTON'S NOOK DESIGN
PINK PAISLEE
TOP DOG DESIGNS
I have decided that it was time to cut back on my commitments going into
2015, but I do have a couple of surprise announcements to share once
they're made public...I can't wait to share them with you!

Here is one of my final projects made with Top Dog Dies
With the chilly winter months still ahead of us, warm someone's day with this cozy
 card using the Darling Deer Die Set...it's not just for Christmas projects! 
 I die-cut the deer image from brown cardstock and then a cute brown and white dot paper 
by Carta Bella.  The horns were snipped from the dot paper and then layered on top
 of the cardstock image.  Next, the Vintage A2 Mat Die was used to create a
 snowy background and the deer was added with foam adhesive. 
 The snowy hill (cut from white cardstock) was spritzed with an iridescent spray
 and also added at the bottom with foam adhesive.  A simple sentiment sticker
 from the same Carta Bella collection was attached, along with a small die-cut snowflake.
  The serene scene and color scheme will surely brighten anyone's winter day!
 
I cannot believe that the CHA Winter show is just a week and a few days away...
if you're going, I hope to see you there!  
Let me close by wishing you each a very Happy New Year...
Love and hugs to you all!

  1. I completely and totally wish I was going to CHA - because then one of my dreams could come true - meeting you!!! But since I am not I will just wait patiently for life to figure out how I can meet you!! I am sad that you won't be designing for Doodlebug anymore - the highlight for me of new releases was seeing what you would do with it!! I am happy and excited for you with whatever comes your way - I will continue to follow you and be a big supporter and a major ooher and awerr, ok?!?! All my best to you - Taunya

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥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.
