Love is in the Air

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it seems that LOVE projects are popping up all over the blogosphere and www in general...I *heart* this time of the year.  So many nostalgic memories like making mailboxes from shoeboxes, cutting hearts from construction paper and finding just the 'right' valentine card for that 'special' boy in your surely didn't want to give one that was too suggestive to the boy that you didn't like...oh the stress of it all hehe!
I have a couple of new projects to share with you this Thursday, so let's get goin'

is my day over at the I Heart {Ippity} Blog

I stamped the image twice onto two different patterned papers (I used Suzy Ultman's Lion Sleeps by K&CO.) and then carefully cut out the wings and eyes, attaching them to the body with foam dots.
The cute crepe paper trim is from my Etsy shop...I added the stamped title to the top portion and then topped with buttons and twine. I wanted to dress up the eyes and give some texture, so I glued on two small black poms :) Many different avenues with this sweet stamp set! And my guy loves pink, so I thought it would make a cute Valentine card.
Lots and lots of new releases out this month!  Be sure to visit Heather and she can set you up with Ippity Stamps.

It's LOVE WEEK over at Imaginisce's Blog!
Cards, layouts, mini albums, altered's all been covered this week.
I was asked to create a mini album (I think everyone knows how much I LOVE makin' 'em)
so I started with my Cricut and the sweet papers and embellishments from the brand new
 SOLE SISTERS Collection

And a little peek at the inside of 6 for adding photos to.

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…
