Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the 

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used:

To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.

Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.

I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.

I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  

After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then attached to the front of the girl with the Dual Tip Glue Pen.

A square frame was die cut from cardstock and placed around the pocket with Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4".  

To mount the framed pocket to the card, I used black Crafty Foam Tape.  

For the birthday girl, after stamping the image onto watercolor page with black Staz-On pink, I colored her in with watercolor pencils.  The sentiment was stamped onto patterned paper and then punched out with an oval punch.

I added more decorative elements by die-cutting two of the banners from Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut.  

Here you can see all of the yummy, 3-D layers!

With this Blog Hop, both manufacturers will be giving away a total of $35 in product!

Paper Bits and Planner Clips

A very happy Sunday to you, my crafty friends!
Today I'm getting caught up on sharing some of my most recent projects for 

First up is a project that I made with planners in mind.  
You could certainly use these cuties on cards and scrapbook pages too though!

These are as easy as die-cutting a banner shape, folding it over a large paper clip
and embellishing!  I've used some of the fabulous Adhesive Foam Shapes (hearts, butterflies, etc.)
from SAB3L and topped them with silver micro beads that I've had  in my
stash foreverrrrr! The papers and most other embellishments are from Pebbles' Girl Squad Collection.  If you'd like to see exactly how I put these today, check out 
my blog post -->HERE<-- a="">

And the cuteness doesn't stop there :)
For my next project I grabbed another adorable collection from Pebbles: Patio Party.

Layers of yum!  Pom trim, sweet bows with a pom pom center and bitty kraft pieces
that were each machine stitched for some extra whimsy.  
I'd love it if you stopped by SAB3L blog and see more detailed photos
and steps of how I assembled these babies -->HERE<-- a="">

And since we're talking about Scrapbook Adhesives, we're having a 
BLOG HOP with HERO ARTS on June 19th and you won't want to miss it!

Hope you have a TERRIFIC week!

Marbleous Mini Album

Hello and Welcome to my contribution and Day #4 of the 

For my project I am sharing one of my very favorite mini albums to make:
"The One Sheet Mini"

And aren't these "Marbleous" papers and stickers from Paper House just
absolutely gorgeous!?!  You can view the PHP products that I've used -here-

To get started, score your 12X12 sheet of paper at 3", 6" and 9".  Flip the paper 90 degrees
and simply score in the middle at 6".

Next, cut the paper along the second 6" score line that you made, making sure
that you stop cutting when you come to the initial 3" score line.

Fold the paper along the score lines in an accordion style fold:
\(the sample below is using another paper)

Using the EZ Runner Grand and Ultra Permanent Adhesive, adhere the (looking at
the above photo for reference) second panel to the third, the middle (top hinged) panels
together and then the following two panels together.  Your front and back
panels will not be adhered to anything.

To add even more glitz, I used the Large Adhesive Dot and added them in a
dotted pattern over the background paper (see below):

I used a very fine gold glitter and sprinkled it over all of the exposed adhesive dots.

Next, I attached one of the 3X4 Journal Cards from the collection to the cover
with strips of the Crafty Foam Tape.

Look how pretty the front turned out :)  I even added a small pearl to the gold dots.

Here is a look at the inner pages:

Again you will find all of these gorgeous papers, stickers, and washi tapes at
Paper House Productions
