Get to Stackin'

Greetings!  I'm happy to be sharing one of my most recent crafts for
ECHO PARK PAPER
"Little Man" Stacked Blocks
using the new "Little Man" Collection featuring bright colors and sweet artwork!

Need a baby shower or first birthday centerpiece?  Try your hand at this oh-so-easy project!

 For the boxes, I started with a basic box cutting file from the Silhouette Design Store 
 and kraft cardstock from Carta Bella. The finished boxes measure 4”, 2.75” and 2” square.  The boxes were assembled and then five mats were cut from patterned paper for each box. 
 I used matching chalk inks to shade the edges, but you may try a walnut ink if you’re going for more of a distressed look!  Next, just adhere the mats to the four sides and tops of the boxes.

 Now, let’s embellish with goodies from the collection such as cardstock stickers, 
die-cuts and enamel dots. 

For the sides of the bottom box, I used left over kraft cardstock and the largest Scallop 
Nesting Die (measures 3.25”) to cut out four of the shapes.  Next, I die-cut four 3”circles
 from Side B of the “Plaid” Paper and attached them to the center of the scallops for
 foam adhesive.  For the front, center scallop, the “Boys Rule” Journal Card
  was cut into a 3” circle.


The middle box was embellished with various cardstock stickers and then layered with
 smaller star stickers.  To the top box, I die cut three of the medium-sized star from the
 “Dream Big” Die Set.  They were attached with foam adhesive and then embellished
 with a medium blue enamel dot. 

A hole punch was used to create a hole in the top of the box and a small piece of paper 
straw was glued into place.  A chenille pom pom was a added, along with a banner
 stick and some twine.



Buttons from my stash, larger die-cut stars layered with smaller star stickers were
 used in completing the fun look!  A grand keepsake for any “Little Man” in your life!

♥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

**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.
