Spring Chickadee

I think it’s pretty safe to say that we’re all ready for Spring, 
so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make something fun and “springy”
 with the beautiful Prism Collection by 
BASIC GREY


  I often use chipboard album pages to create things other-than albums. 
For this project I have taken a 6″X6″ decorative piece of chipboard and transformed it 
into this adorable “Happy Spring” chick wall/door hanging.

First, I traced the shape onto a sheet of the yellow patterned Prism paper and then cut out. 
 The edges were distressed in a walnut ink. Two 1.5″ circles were punched from a 
sheet of pink 6X6 paper and then attached in place of the cheeks.

The beak was made from two 1.5″ squares of orange paper that were glued 
 together and then folded in half at an angle.  Just the bottom portion of the beak
 was glued to the center of the cheeks.  For the wings, I die-cut a roof shape from
 a piece of chipboard and then layered it with a piece of matching yellow paper. 
 The roof was cut in half and inked around the edges.

 Next, all of the pieces were glued to their matching chipboard pieces and assembled. 
 A banner die was used and the chipboard alphas from the collection were used
 to spell out “spring”.


Small holes were punched along the tops of each banner and a piece of white twine
 was stitched through so that the banner pieces could hang in a row.  To the top, two holes
 were also punched and a strand of rustic wire was threaded through to create a hanger.

♥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!

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.
