Happy New Year and welcome to the Season’s Givings Blog Hop! 
If this is your first visit to my blog, welcome, my name is Daniela and I am happy you are here. If you have been coming here for a while, thank you so much for coming back !! 

What a great opportunity to be hopping with friends and give back a little. It’s a fun way to start the new year.
If you arrived from Alice Wertz you are in the right place.


Today I am sharing my two final projects that I created for Scraptastic Club with December All Of You Kit, add-on, and stamps. I was asked recently to join their DT and this is only my second month designing for them. We are starting  two new kits next month, in addition to the ones we have now, new Card kit and new Planner kit.

Love by Daniela Dobson

For the card I used the mask and some texture paste. I sprayed Color Shine once it was dry,and stamped hearts from the stamp set. I used twine and pink thread from my stash.  I just love these colors together.

For the layout I wanted to use the large letters and then I added bits and pieces to match all the colors in the letters. I love the way it turned out.

Fun day by Daniela Dobson

{ Scraptastic Club – December All Of You Kit }

Hi!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We enjoyed some super warm weather here in Texas this week and I loved it. It was busy last week of school and this week getting things ready for Christmas and CHA (Craft and Hobby show).

I just wanted to share some of my layouts and cards I created with the December All Of You Kit, add-on, and stamps.

This fist one I shared on the blog here. I used All Of You stamp set and modeling paste with the mask.

Happy together by Daniela Dobson

For this boy layout, I pulled all the blue elements with a touch of orange from the kit. The stars are glittery and super fun. I used the the large alphabet stamp set at the bottom to stamp “boy”. This Life Noted stamp set was used for my journaling. I stamped the strips on white cardstock and cut them out.

Happy boy by Daniela Dobson

Scraptastic Club Word Puffy Stickers are an awesome addition to the kit. I added them to this layout and one of the cards below.

Happy boy close by Daniela Dobson

For this card I layered All Of You Digital files with Maggie Holmes Shine ephemera that came in All Of You Add-on. The butterfly is a die from Technique Tuesday from my stash. I sprinkled some color shine from All Of You Color Add-on.

Dream by Daniela Dobson

For this last card more layers and a doily and sequins from my stash.

Happy day by Daniela Dobson

{ Documenting December }

I have a blog post on Elle’s Studio blog today and I am sharing first six pages of my December Daily. Remember my November post, where I shared my Traveler’s Notebook. Well, I started to fill it out with my daily photos.

December Documented 2015 front cover by Daniela Dobson

Here is the first page. You can check out my post on Elle’s Studio blog to see all the other pages.

It’s still work in progress. When I am done I will share it here on my blog.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – Snowy Wishes }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Snowy Wishes.
Here is my card.

I just love this stamp set with matching dies - Riding Pretty. I have an old card that I made with it, right here on the shelf, and I wanted to use this set for the challenge. The set is perfect for any occasion depending what is in the basket. I used to cut this bike out by hand, but not now.
I die cut the scalloped circle from glitter felt. I stamped Silent Night on a piece of white cardstock. The Fir Trees are die cut from vellum and I added white paint and glitter to the edges so they look like they are full of snow.
The bicycle is colored with Prismacolor pencils and I added a little twine to the tree that is popped up with foam adhesive. I added Hill Landscape Layers under the bike and they are all snow. 

Impression Obsession Stamps and Dies:

Why don’t you come along and play with us. To enter the challenge go to the Impression Obsession Blog (all the details are there!).  Create a new project using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog between December 17 – December 30. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.
Make sure you check out what the rest of our DT created.
I hope you play along.

{ December 2015 Memory Keepers Studio by Technique Tuesday }

Our December release of Memory Keepers Studio – Hopes & Dreams and Fresh Cut StudioHopes and Dreams is out and available. Here is what I created with the set.

I used some modeling paste and a stencil for the background that I sprayed with color shine. I die cut hopes & dreams from gold cardstock and stamped the sentiment on the bottom. Love this set.

We added lots of new stamps for December, make sure you check them out.

I created this card to showcase the Wavy Banner dies. This banner coordinates with two stamps sets, Home Banners and Thank You Banners. Simply die-cut a banner and then stamp on top, like I did here with Thank You Banners. You can find some other fun examples from our DT members on our blog post HERE.

One last one for today. If you are looking for last minute Christmas cards here is one I made using Season of Joy and Santa Mail stamp sets and Postage Card steel dies.

Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s been crazy busy around here with Christmas preparations, helping at school and CHA projects. What is everyone else doing? I am trying to keep up with my December Daily and I hope to share that on here soon. Have a great Wednesday.

{ Impression Obsession Design Team Thursday }

It’s my turn to share a project I created using Impression Obsession stamps and dies. Today I have a little altered and glittery frame and I only used dies.

Peace frame by Daniela Dobson

The frame was hot pink and I painted it white. I die cut two Spring Wreaths from iCraft adhesive from Therm O Web. It’s sticky on both sides. You peel off the top liner and add glitter and peel off the bottom liner to adhere it. I die cut the Reindeer from iCraft Deco Foil white foam adhesive. It has adhesive on both sides, as well. I added gold Deco Foil. The “peace” is die cut from vellum and adhered to the reindeer.
The frame is about 4 x 4 inches.  I added gold Deco Foil to the frame using iCraft Deco Foil liquid adhesive. I just used a make up sponge to add the adhesive to the frame and then added gold Deco Foil. I love how it turned out.

That is all from me today. Have a great Thursday!

{ Scraptastic (Thursday) Challenge }

Jennie and I are up on Scraptastic blog with our projects.  We challenged ourselves to create a layout on the diagonal. Now we challenge you.

I am not a diagonal person. at all. This is only my second, ever, layout that I created like this. I like my photos pretty straight or with a little tilt. When creating a layout I start with my base and then I take a strip of patterned paper and adhere it at an angle that I want. After that I follow the same angle with all my embellishments.

Right now by Daniela Dobson

I used November Ain’t No Sunshine kit and add-on. This is my fifth layout with the kit, but I still had lots of paper and some embellishments. I did incorporate the digital files and the stamps, as well. To maximize my embellishments, I cut them in half and then tuck them behind other things on the page. The washi and twine are from my own stash.

Right now close by Daniela Dobson

Come and check out the blog to see what Jennie created.
