Congratulations, Love Birds

began today's blog post with a project
by the new 2013 Creative Team...I just happen to be first!

 Love Birds Congratulations Gift Bag
made with tons of goodness from the Curtsey Boutique Shop at Etsy!
I found this sweet, free printable at and
printed it onto white cardstock.  Here are the step-by-steps and a listing 
of the supplies that I used from the Curtsey Boutique Shop

1.  After printing the 'love birds' image, use a 2.5"circle punch 
to cut out the design; adhere to the center of the doily.  
2.  Stamp sentiment onto a piece of cardstock,
 trim and add to bottom portion of image.  
3.Machine-stitch around the perimeter if desired.  
4.  Using a Ballpoint-Tip Glue Pen, attach a border of brown/white 
baker's twine around the edge of the image.  
5. Line the top of the doily to just under the hole of the shipping tag 
and attach with adhesive or glue dots.

6. Next, attach the paper bow to the top of the doily
 using adhesive, foam dot or glue dot.
7. Cluster two white felt roses to the side of the image (or center, if desired)
 and add a button or pearl to the center or leave plain.  
 8.  Hand-cut or use a leaf punch to fashion a couple of leaves. 
 9. Before tying the tag onto the paper bag, fold over the opening of the bag to create a flap.  
 10.  Using the hole of the shipping tag as a guide, punch a hole into the top of the bag. 
11.  Tie tag on with a length of brown/white baker's twine.

♥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

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

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.
