Pretties

It's been a lovely, sunshine-y day!  The weather inspires me.  With rays of sunlight streaming into my craft room, I can't help but want to create something fun to fit the mood.
I finished these cute tags within a half-hour (maybe less if you deduct the times I answered the phone, got something to drink, etc.!).  I've added them to The Red Robin shop at Etsy
Set of three tags.  I soak standard shipping tags in strong tea for a few hours, then dry out in a low-heat oven.  To give them extra pop and shabbiness, I inked the edges in a walnut.  The stamped images are from Stampin Up.  I then water-color, add an accent of glitter to each and top them with a satin ribbon bow, vintage button, paper leaves and crochet thread.  I envision these on not only packages, but on card fronts, collage projects or scrapbook pages!  Anyone who loves shabby chic would love these :)
Here is a super quick and easy recipe that I wanted to share.  My friend and co-worker, Andree, brought it to work one night and I just had to have the recipe.  Keep in mind that you can use any cake mix and container of frosting

Sour Cream Inside Out Cake
•1 box yellow cake mix
•4 eggs
•1 cup vegetable oil
•1 cup water
•1 container cream cheese frosting
•1 tsp vanilla or almond extract (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix first four ingredients together in a large bowl.  Beat as cake package directs.  Fold in frosting and flavoring.  Beat slowly until well incorporated.
Grease or spray Bundt pan; flour if desired.  Pour in batter.  Bake for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool and then invert onto plate or cake-stand.  Serve with whipped topping and strawberries!
Yummy-Yummy-Yummy
I've also used a Devil's Food cake mix and vanilla frosting...it's fun and interesting to see what you can come up with...I don't think you could go wrong!
Enjoy

♥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.
