South Pacific & Tea Garden Eye Candy!

**Don't forget to sign-up for the PageMaps U Card Class Giveaway**

Basic Grey
has two new, beautiful collections up for your perusal today 
and a chance at winning the collections for your very own!


With "South Pacific", I created a 3-D 12X12 photo frame featuring the
"Map of the World" paper from the collection, along with some ephemera pieces and stickers.


I machine-stitched along the latitude lines and then added a few hand-stitched
X's to give texture.  I clustered the embellishments with foam adhesive and then
added Candy Dots to all of the places that I would like to travel to some day!

And here is a quick card showcasing the gorgeous colors and
artwork that can be found:

"Tea Garden" inspired this whimsical and shabby-chic styled banner.
I started with a scalloped chipboard banner set by Maya Road, and painted it black:




I used various dies to craft the rolled flowers, hearts and leaves...they're
perfect for layering!  Adding to the element of black, I incorporated some of
the black chalkboard wood veneers from the Evergreen Collection.

And finally, one of my very favorite cards, ever!  That bird is the sweetest!

♥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.
