Top Dog Dies: spring + authentique

Post 1 of 2 for me HERE for my Chickaniddy Crafts post!

Hello!  I'm here sharing a project combining Exclusive Dies from Top Dog Dies and Authentique Anchored!

I still have tons of Authentique left from the earlier blog hop!

Here's a quick goodie bag:

Even though the Anchored Collection is nautical themed, you wouldn't necessarily recognize it on my project.  That's the beauty of collections, thinking outside the box to create an unexpected project!

This is an Easter Treat bag that doesn't use any Easter related dies.

Love the look of layering multiple die cuts.  It adds so much interest to a project.  I wanted to really make my embellishments pop so I kept the glassine bag plain.  I used one of the sticker strips and covered a wooden clothespin.  The SRM sticker sentiment happens to fit perfectly on the die cut frame.

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
