A Welcome Basket

Hi there, friends!  I'm up today at the 
SIMPLE STORIES BLOG
with a sweet "Welcome Baby" basket brimming with paper flowers
 and baby's info; such a wonderful keepsake for a new mom!

For this project I have used the "Enchanted Collection"...it's ideal for any of
 those little girl projects, even to welcome baby.  The wooden box is one that
 I found at Michael's and measures approximately 4.25"W X 5.5"H X 2"D.  I traced
 the front and back of the box onto a piece of the "Rose" Simple Basic paper and
 then cut out.  Adhesive was applied with the Xyron Creative Station and attached to box.

To the front, one of the printed sides of the 3X4 SN@P! cards was edged in green
 ric rac and embellished with a sentiment cloud from the Bits & Pieces pack. 
 A butterfly was attached to a pixie stick straw and attached with a glue dot.


From the 6X6 paper pad, blooms were punched using the Floriana punch by McGill. 
Two blooms were layered together and then attached to a paper straw.  Floral
 foam was inserted into the box and the flowers arranged in a staggered fashion.  
The baby info was printed off using my home printer and then cut into strips and
 glued to the straws.  Various Bradz, Bits & Pieces and chipboard 
stickers were added to the centers of the blooms.

The sides of the box were covered with strips cut from 6X6 paper and satin bows
 were glued to the sides.

This would also make an adorable centerpiece for a baby shower or a nursery decoration!

♥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.
