Yacht Club Shadowbox

Ahoy, friends!  I'm up on the 
CARTA BELLA PAPER BLOG
 with a nautical shadowbox that I’ve decorated with pieces from

I started with a 10X10 shadowbox frame with an 8X8 inset. 
 I removed the back of the frame and used it to begin building my design on! 

 I chose the“Nantucket” paper for the main background and then began adding
 clusters of embellishments.  I also added a border to the top and bottom
 of the paper with the Woodgrain Washi Tape.

To the lower, left corner I used the largest label die from the 
Designer Label Set #5 and die-cut the design from side B of the 
“Alphabet Letters” paper.  Next, I layered on one
 of theEphemera label pieceswith foam adhesives.  To the center of it, the
 chipboard sailboat and various stickers and enamel dots were attached.

Now that the inside of the shadowbox has been decorated, it was placed back
 inside of the frame.  I outlined the front of the glass with a trim of red/white/blue 
twine and some fabric glue.  

To finish off the shadowbox, I covered the front of the frame by cutting a piece
 of the “Swimsuits” paper(side B) to just slightly less than 10”X10”. 
 Next, I cut an 8”x8” square from  the very center of the paper and then attached
 to the front of the frame. The edges of the  paper were inked with a walnut ink
 to carry out the rustic, nautical feel!

♥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.
