From My Kitchen... yours!

It's all ready Thursday, so that means it's Totally Terrific Thursday at I Heart Ippity.
I've been having the best time with the latest Ippity Stamps...I may have mentioned that before, but it's worth repeating again :)
For this week's project, I selected the 
My Kitchen to Yours
Itty Bitty Stamp Set

I knew when I laid my eyes on this stamp that I would make a gifting tag...perfect for this.
 I first stamped the image onto a scrap of cardstock, watercolored the center block, punched with a 2" square punch, inked around the edges and then finally spritzed with a walnut ink.  I cut a little larger piece of gingham paper and centered the stamped image as shown (with pop dots, of course!).  To embellish, I used a strip of doily (the kind used for bulletin boards) and wrapped it around the bottom portion of the tag.  The cherries sticker, gingham paper and ric rac sticker are from the Farm Fresh collection by October Afternoon.
For the bag, I used a small white lunch sack and scalloped the top with a border punch; fold over and hole punch.  That's all there is to it!
I love having little homemade gifts on hand when I'm hosting a home party or Bunco...everyone loves walking away with a treat!  Fill these small sacks with cookies, candies or a fun snack mix. You'll be the talk of the town :)
Yesterday was just NOT my day...first, I almost (may have even) broke my foot on the edge of my son's bed, then I locked myself out of the house (grabbed the wrong bag with no keys in it!) and had to tear off the screen from a window and crawl through.  I know, I know...I AM really thankful that I at least had a window open to crawl through.  I'm still without a cell phone and what neighbors we have are not home during the day.  So, I'm going to play it easy today and just camp out in my craft room...maybe I won't sew my fingers together or impale myself with the fabric scissors LOL
Have a wonderful day!

♥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.

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.
