Imaginisce + The Twinery Blog Hop

This has been an amazing hop so far...I hope you're enjoying it!

CANVAS {Adorable You} ALBUM
Whew, I finally got to sit down and finish this sweet 'lil album yesterday.
Pretty much every single thing came from The Paper Bakery March Kits!

See ALL photos right here.  I have this sweetie listed in my Dot & Whimsy shop!

 It's my time again at Vintage Street! My two projects were actually up 
yesterday, but with the business of the Blog Hop I thought I would wait until today to share :)
With Mother and Father's Days just around the corner I wanted to get a head start
and have a couple of projects completed.
For Mom: I created a mixed media canvas collage using some of the 
vintage inspired pieces from Dimestore Vogue.  If you love vintage sewing
motifs and classy ladies dressed in 1950's fashion, then you'll love this collection!
I have more photos and instructions up at VSM Blog.

For Dad: My daddy loves getting handmade cards, so I created this with him in 
mind :)  Most everything on the card came from Vintage Street!.  The Family Fun Paper Kit
is loaded with fun vintage and retro prints.  VSM also carries the coolest Tinted Tape...
the Numbers Tinted Tape is my absolute many possibilities!
I'll be back with Vintage Street on May 17th and one of my projects
will have a lot to do with these:
Hmmm, I'm thinkin' a mini album..... :)  Yes, I think I will!
Tomorrow: I Heart Ippity (Unity) Card 
Friday: Simple Stories...I will share two layouts and a card on my very first blog post with SS
Can't wait to show you!
Until then, have a super day!

  2. Love what you did with your Paper Bakery kit :) Just fabby!!

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…
