On The Fringe!

Whoot!  I received an email this past week from the editor of Simply Handmade Magazine;  my sweet little crepe paper fringe (Pink Confection) will be featured in the Jan/Feb 2012 edition...I'm just a tad excited wwweee!  I have TONS of color schemes available at my Etsy shop, Dot and Whimsy. It's become quite the popular item with my Etsy customers...I take custom orders too!
 I Heart {Ippity} Time
With my newest stamps from I Heart {Ippity}, I created this clean and simple card.  I love the possibilities with the selection of flowers in this stamp collection, {Flowers + Friends= Priceless}
 I stamped the stems onto a strip of cardstock, then spritz with Smooch spray and inked around the edges.  The flower images were stamped onto distressed scrapbook the look of watercolor without the fuss.  I then hand-cut the flowers closely to the stamped edge and arranged them over the stems. A little machine stitching and sticker letters completed the look.  Yes, this is clean-and-simple to me LOL

Your Scrapbook Stash: An August Layout
On other design fronts, I completed another layout for Your Scrapbook Stash using Echo Park's NEW Splash papers...I've loved using these papers.
Back to the craft room today...Dot and Whimsy is becoming quite bare!  Oh and don't forget to visit Paper Issues;  the latest link party theme is "Let's Ride".  I'm always so impressed by the unique projects that everyone shares over there...many, many talented designers and I'm delighted to be amongst them :)
Stay cool and I'll see you all soon!


  1. Congratulations on the publication, Shellye! I love your "on the fringe" and definitely plan on buying some soon! Especially with Halloween decorating coming up soon. :o)

    Your card and layout are cute, too. The quilted background on your layout is something I like to do in my mini books. I should try it on a layout!

  2. Congrats on the publication! I love your layout and card!

  3. Congrats Shelley!! I love your projects. Your work is beautiful and just full of such great detail and inspiration:) TFS!

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…
