Pocket Organizer

This is one of those ideas that I piddled around with, without a clue
of how it would turn out in the end...that's what I love about crafting!
These cute new Treat Bags by 
along with their new Kraft in Color Collection, were the focus of this handy
 Pocket Organizer;  it can hold your monthly memories, milestones, birthdays, etc.  
All you will need is a variety of the new Treat Bags, a couple of sheets of your favorite 
12X12 papers, fun embellishments and a good quality high tack adhesive.

 To begin, cut a strip of 12X12 paper to 3.25"W X 12".  Score the strip in
 1/2" increments and then fold accordion style.

Select 12 Treat Bags and apply a high-tack adhesive to both sides of the accordion folds.  
Next, attach the pockets to the folds and press the adhesive in place to secure.

Embellish the front pocket as desired.

For the tags, you will need two sheets of 12X12 paper;  
I've used the Kraft in Color "Cupcake Flower/Ledger" paper and cut into strips
 to measure 2.75"W X 5"H.  Corner round the edges of the tags if you'd like.

I've used a punch to create the tabs, along with Teensy Type Cardstock Stickers to mark 
each one with a designated month.

I love that the organizer is sturdy enough to stand up easily. 
These go together so quickly and would make a sweet little gift for your friends!

♥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.
