Grace Alone

Grace: It is actually my "word" for 2016.
To show more grace and to be thankful for the grace that has been shown to me.
So many times I pray to be given the "grace to get me through" a certain situation and
in those times I can feel God's presence as He guides me and gives me the
right words and actions to put forth.  
Grace= unmerited favor.  

Yesterday I was up on the Bella Blvd Blog with
this sweet "Grace Alone" hanger

I love adding little hangers to cupboard knobs or giving them for gifts! 
Today I have a colorful, house-shaped hanging featuring the 
Whatever Is Lovely Collection and stickers from the Illustrated Faith line.

I started with a chipboard house shape that I covered with patterned paper. 
I used large enamel dots to outline the scallops of the roofline. The front of the
 house was decorated with one of the 3X4 journal cards and a border of the
 die-cut scallop sticker.

Before dressing the back of the house with patterned paper, pom pom trim 
was glued around the edge, as well as baker’s twine. I hand-cut four butterflies
 from the “Lovely Paper” and layered a smaller one on top of a larger one before
 attaching them. The ‘tails’ of the butterflies were cut from one of the label stickers.
 A cheery ribbon was added to the top and is now ready for hanging!

♥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…

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.
