A Lucky Charm

 Sharing a project that I had up with Authentique Paper yesterday
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Creating a lucky charm for your home to celebrate St. Patrick's Day couldn't 
be easier with a heart template and a helping of the "Lucky" Collection by
AUTHENTIQUE PAPER
blog.authentiquepaper.com

To begin, a 4.5" X 4.5" heart die, template or cutting file will be needed; 
or free-hand the shape.  Cut the heart four times from the Lucky One paper.
  For a sturdier hanging, the individual hearts may also be backed with
 a lightweight chipboard.

Arrange the hearts so that all of the points are facing in towards the center.
 Place a large circle of paper at the back of the hearts and adhere in the
 center to hold the hearts in place.

Accent the base hearts with a smaller, scrolled version from the Lucky Four paper
 Distress around the edges of the shapes with a walnut ink, if desired.

The vintage motif was trimmed from the Lucky Two paper and added to 
the center (of the now) four-leaf-clover.  The edge of the design was glittered
 with a emerald green glitter.

Two shamrocks were hand-cut from the Lucky Three paper and adhered 
below the vintage image.  The sticker sentiment was added to the center 
and a row of fun buttons were arranged at the top.  

 Any type of material can be used for the hanger: jute, twine, ribbon, wire, etc. 
Add a pretty bow to one side and you have the luckiest of lucky charms
 ready to meet your St Patrick's Day guests!

♥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

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.
