Bon Voyage!

Do you have that someone in your life who loves
to hop on a cruise ship and sail away? My parents are constantly
 going on a cruise, so I made these with them in mind.
Today at Authentique Paper I have
 a neat way to send them off in style with the 
Anchored Collection!

Take an ordinary windowed bakery bag, decorate and then fill with fun treats
 that they can use and enjoy: sunscreen, Dramamine, snacks, journal, a new 
iPod etc....choose a larger bag if needed!

First, you'll need a bakery bag, or two, or three...you can find them here

Next, using either round dies, punches or a template, match up the size of
 the window opening with the smallest die possible. 
Select a die that is roughly 1/2" larger  than the inner die.

Layer the two dies together onto a selected piece of Anchored Paper and cut!

Turn the shape into a life preserver by decorating with just a few snips of paper
 that have been glued to the sides as shown above.  Adhere over the window 
with foam adhesive for an even more dramatic look.

If you decide to also decorate the front with paper, first determine the width and height 
and then measure in from the sides to find the exact placement for the
 smallest die and then cut.  Add any embellishments, such as brads or 
hand-sewn buttons before adhering to the bag.  
That's all there is to it!  This would also make a handsome treat bag for a
 nautical themed baby shower or birthday party!

♥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.
