Quick Crochet Flower
1.Take your desired amount of crochet trim or ribbon;  I used about 2 foot of The Girl's Paperie JUBILEE crochet trim.

2. From the right end, fold the edge of the trim over to the left (as shown in photo #1).  Leave about a 2" tail.

3. Next, fold the folded edge again to the left (you may do this a couple of times, depending on the width of the material used.) Photo #2.
4. Hold the folded end in your right hand securely and the longer length of trim in your left hand.

5. With the left hand, begin turning the trim as you work counter-clockwise against the trim held in your right hand. Photo #3.
6. Continue folding the trim as you create the desired 'petal' looks. It maybe necessary to add a little dab of fabric glue between layers to secure it as you're working.
7. Once you've reached the desired look, snip off any remaining ribbon and carefully glue down with fabric glue.  Attach to a felt or paper circle.  Your Scrapbook Stash NOW carries GLUBBERS from Cosmo Cricket, which make the ideal base for your fabric flowers.
Embellish as desired.  I also used the seam binding, cabochon and pennant from The Girl's Paperie Jubliee line :)
Perfect for cards, package or bag accents, lapel pins, hair bands, barrettes, Christmas tree decorations, jar toppers and lots more.  I really liked working with the crochet trim; it's easy to manipulate and stays true to form as you're working.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Enjoy the HOP...see you soon!

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…
