Happy 5th of July

I hope everyone had a fun, safe and Happy 4th!  We spent the day in Foley, Alabama, perusing the souvenir shops and enjoying the scenery.  Last night we sat out on the beach and enjoyed the fireworks display at the resort to the south of us and to the north of us...we're guessing our group didn't put one on due to the current burn ban.  We've been here since Saturday and not a drop of rain yet!  Lucky for us, but not so for the locals :/

The sneak-peek is up at Back Porch Memories!  Here is just one of the pages that I completed using the July Solo Kit
I love this new paper line from Simple Stories...100 Days of Summer. Every single thing is from this kit except for the pink scalloped border...it is SIMPLY amazing and coordinates beautifully.  Be sure to check it (and the Medley Kit) out before they're G-O-N-E!

I Heart {Ippity} will begin sharing their Creative Team's creations tomorrow.  I'm so excited to see what the other ladies come up with and what stamps they're using for July :) 

I can't believe that I'm doing laundry on vacation, but I am!  Off to get the last load out of the dryer and start folding.  We're leaving here early in the morning and heading to Ft. Walton to spend the day and night with our friends from home.  The tentative plans are to venture to Big Kahuna's for a fun day (for the kids anyway) of more sun and water park thrills!

See you all in a couple of days!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

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: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
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…
