Color Chaos

It's time for a bit of "unlimited inspiration" from 
this week!  Today the new "Color Chaos" collection projects are being shared.
Check out the blog to see even more ideas :)

I have three cards that were designed for the booth at CHA:
“Count Your Blessings” card
By placing two of the diagonal striped patterns going in the opposite direction, an
 eye-catching herringbone pattern is created. The journal card is so beautifully done
 in color and fonts, so only a couple of embellishments were needed to complete the card. 
A small section of the scalloped border sticker was added with foam adhesive.

 Supplies: Color Chaos: Gulf Strandz, Peep Strandz, Orange Strandz, Just Write
 Journaling, Trinkets, Treasures & Text; Simply Spring: Chipboard Icons; Enamel Dots: Ice

 “Best Version of You” card
Use simple-shaped die-cuts to give a different look to journal cards. Here, I die-cut 
a mat from a Clear Cut sheet and then layered it on top patterned paper, which was 
cut the same size. The red enamel heart gave a pop of color to the journal card and
 the bottom was softened with the addition of a Bella Bow.

 Supplies: Color Chaos: Oreo Black Strandz, Gulf Strandz, Daily Details, Words of
 Wisdom, Trinkets; Clear Cut: Ice Confetti; Enamel DooDads: McIntosh; Bella Bows: Ice

 "Celebrate Today" card
Cut a mat to be the same height as the 3X4 journal card; center the journal card horizontally 
and then flank each side with pieces of the scalloped border sticker. Adding enamel dots 
to the centers of the scallops gives extra dimension and also draws attention to the 
outline of the shape. Embellish with a cute chipboard shape and the card is complete!

 Supplies: Color Chaos: McIntosh Strandz, Ice Strandz, Words of Wisdom, 
Treasures & Text; Ciao Chipboard: Flowers & Clouds; Enamel Dots: Bell Pepper

It was such fun and a pleasure to once again meet up with the Bella Blvd 
team at the show!  The booth looked absolutely adorable and the contributing
designers' projects were seriously amazing!  Stay tuned for more new
projects in the coming weeks.
Have a great weekend!

♥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.
