Authentic and Unique Opportunity!

When I received an email a couple of weeks ago from
Emily Lanham, the new Authentique Design Team and Social Media Coordinator, 
asking me to join their Design Team, I pretty quickly said YES!
And I really had no other plans of joining anymore Design Teams for now, but...
 always the BUT...
but having just recently purchased some of the newer Authentique products, and
having fell in love with the superior quality of their papers and stickers, I couldn't let
this dream opportunity pass me by :)  I even told Emily, "I really don't 
'scrapbook' much...I'm a papercrafter and cardmaker more or less"
She said that was exactly what they were looking for...lots of
altered artsy stuff, home dec projects, cards, etc.,
which is so authentically and uniquely ME (get it? hehehe)!

 I will be crafting alongside two other newbies to the group (and two fellow DT'ers all ready):
Guiseppa Gubler and Angie Blom, as well as veterans: Heather Conklin, Natalie Dever,
Emily Lanham, Janeen Shember and Loes DeGroot.

One of my first assignments will be using one of the newest collections: FRESH!
Fresh is described as:
 Our Fresh collection is reminiscent of the olden days of summer, celebrates sandy 
toes and invites ocean-blue water. As the sun warms the soul and 
refreshes the mind, so also, this line is soft and relaxed, creating the exact emotion
 one hopes for when laying on the beach. Hints of red pop in and out, warming the
 cool blues and neutral tones. 

For an up close & personal look at FRESH, you can visit Authentique or the 
Authentique Blog :)  If you haven't experienced Authentique, then I hope you'll 
give it a try!  Holding their papers in your hands can't hold a candle to simply
seeing them in a photograph.

That's all for today!  I couldn't wait to share my news with you all!
Until tomorrow...TTFN :)

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…
