Halloween Loaded Bags

Happy Wednesday Greetings!
I know I say this a lot about being addicted to things that I craft,
but these little Loaded Bags are the real deal.  
A true crafty addiction!

Here's a peek at my latest Halloween Loaded Bags


I found the flat, black and orange dot bags at Wal Mart in the stationary section.
The bags are roughly 4" X 6".  I folded the bottoms up 2" and then used 
a high-tack tape from Scrapbook Adhesives to the sides to create the pocket.

And as much as I'd love to be a "copic" girl, I just can't seem to part with that
much $ for markers, so....I found these on Amazon and thought I'd give them a try!
I must say they're actually very decent alcohol markers for the price.
Below, I've used them to color in the cute images from Darcie's

I do not profess to be a great color-er with markers, but I think they
turned out pretty good :)


To the inside of the larger pocket, I added this mini "pocket letter"
I cut a row of 3 pockets from a standard baseball card sleeve and then
added ATC cards and other embellishments!  Photos and journaling
can also be added to the sleeves and then placed in a Halloween Daily or planner.


Other pieces of ephemera, tags, die-cuts and cute clips were added too!

I have these listed in my Etsy shop if you don't have them time
to make your own.  Super fun for a teacher gift or happy mail swap :)

So glad you stopped by!  This time next week, I'll be on a plane
to Milwaukee for the "She Loves Color" Event.  I'm beyond excited!
Be sure to FOLLOW ME on Instagram if you'd like to see pictures
of my trip and time there :)

♥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.

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.
