Cards With "I Am"

Hello! Today I'm up at the 
SIMPLE STORIES BLOG
with a set of cards using the beautiful new "I Am" Collection.
  The collection is filled with all sorts of sweet sentiments that are perfect
 for cards, or if you prefer, use the pretty papers and embellishments to
 create an assortment of plain note cards!

For the first card I used a 3" and 4" circle die to cut the 6X6 patterned papers. 
The circles were layered together with foam adhesive and black pom pom trim was
 adhered to the back of the larger circle and then attached to the card front. 

The typewriter sticker was embellished with one of the cute clips, a label sticker and
 butterfly sticker.  And I love that the new adhesive brads!  A small strip of washi tape
 was applied to a scrap piece of paper and then added to the bottom.

The focus of this next card was the adorable chipboard frame!
The inset of the frame was filled with one of the smaller journal cards and then layered 
onto a black mat. 

In keeping with the floral pattern on the frame, matching patterned paper 
(for the card base) and stickers were used.  The gold foil chipboard pieces add
 just the right amount of glitz and shine.

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.
