Hey Stella...

And Rose!  I love these collections from My Mind's Eye and I really love it when I can get a deal from Scrapbook Steals. When I opened the kit and saw the girly die-cuts, I knew that I wanted to use the purse shaped chipboard to create an album.  I listed this at Etsy and it sold within just a couple of hours...I had to share it though!
School starts up tomorrow!  The whole family piled into the vehicle yesterday to partake in the Tax Free weekend.  We did pretty good.  Four pair of jeans, four t-shirts, two pair of underwear and a pair of Nike's for under $200.  The summer has just flown by, but I'm ready to get back on a normal schedule.  No more staying up late and sleepin' in :)
Have a great week!

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…
