Back and Forth

So one day I'm working on a Halloween project and the next day a Christmas project...back and forth and back and forth!  I pulled out a sheet of Bryce and Madeline Halloween stickers that I had purchased a long time ago...thought about giving them to my daughter and then decided 'no way, these are too cute not to put on an album'  But don't feel sorry for Sydnee...she gets plenty of loot!
You can find more photos of this 'lil cutie over at my Dot & Whimsy shop at Etsy :)
And because I'm so far behind on blogging, I haven't shared my other latest album!  I tell ya, I had a toothache after making this is just drenched in sweet candy goodness ♥
One of my wonderful repeat customers has already picked this up for her collection...along with some of my SWEETHEART (bright red, soft pink and creme) crepe paper fringe...her box looked liked Candy Land itself!  She'll be so happy :)

Today is Wednesday Wowsers over at I Heart Ippity blog!  There are always lots of beautiful creations made with Ippity (Unity) brand Heather has tons of stock on hand for purchase.  
Here is my latest card using {The Man} Collection
Super, super quick and easy using my Sizzix die to create the chipboard frame.  I then distressed it with walnut ink, spritzed with a little gold Smooch Spray.  For the shirt, after stamping and cutting it out, I applied it to the card using foam dots.  I then stamped another image and cut the tie out; added it with pop dots. Of course, a piece of paper can't get away from me without being stitched on hee hee hee hee

This is the news from Little Yellow may remember in my last post that I mentioned submitting some stuff...well...

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…
