Hillside Hoop'la

Hello there and a happy Wednesday to you!
I had this really sweet project up yesterday on the blog at

 This is an inexpensive home décor project featuring the new “Hillside” Collection 
and a couple of wooden embroidery hoops that you can find in craft or fabric stores.

For this project I have used a 4” and 6” embroidery hoop.  First, I traced the very 
outside edge of each of the hoops; this will leave enough excess for tucking the
 paper around the inner hoop.

Next, trim out the tracing, leaving about a ¼” border as shown in the photo above.

Using small, micro-tip scissors, snip the paper up to the trace line creating little tabs
 in the edge of the paper as you go around the circle.

Fold the paper around the edge of the inner hoop and secure the tabs with a quick 
drying glue.  Place the outer hoop over the inner hoop.  Glue the smaller hoop to the
 top, center of the completed 6” hoop.  Begin decorating!

I started with three of the wooden ‘stakes’ and adhered them to the center of the 4” hoop.  Next I layered on the chipboard letters to spell out “Hi”

The kraft tag was added and the “friends” sticker added to the center of it with 
foam adhesive.  One of the kraft circles was used for the “I” in “hi”.

I kept the rest of the embellishment simple by adding a single orange chipboard
 butterfly with hot pink Candy Dot centers!

I love the the piece can sit as it is on a shelf, propped up with an easel or used to 
display as wall-art.  Create several of these, large and small, and hang in a fun
 grouping in a child’s room or craft area!  I hope that you enjoy mixing ‘n matching
  Hillsideas much as I did J

♥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.
