It's Been A While!

Wow, I tell ya it seems as though my blogging has gone
from feast to famine over the last couple of weeks!
I'm happy to report that I have finished the last of my CHA
projects for Authentique Paper and Simple Stories.  Just wait until you 
see all of the beautiful paper lines that these two companies are coming out with!
Halloween and Christmas and Fall and School and, and...
well, that's enough really!
I also received a fun assortment of new goodies from Imaginisce this
past week too.  Yep, more Christmas and Halloween!
Ahhh, I love the smell of ink and paper in the mornin' :)
 And to get into the spirit of things, I'm adding lots of songs to my
Christmas Oldies!

I posted my very last card for I Heart Ippity this week.
After a full year, I've decided to hand over the reigns to someone new!
Here's a peek at the card:

Once again, I've used one of the newest releases for Ippity
Dream to Be

I paired it up with my go-to paper of the month, {Summer Fresh} by Simple Stories.
If you choose to shop Ippity, please make Heather Flaherty your Ippity Chick...
she would so appreciate it!

July is my month for CARDS Challenges at The Nook!
I'm really excited to be working with the newest kit featuring
My Mind's Eye {Indie Chic}
Here's a little samplin'
If you're interested in this kit, I wouldn't wait too long...I'm sure it will
sell out pretty fast.

I've been invited to be a Guest Designer at a fairly new internet shopping site,
Pro 31 Designs, during the months of July and August.

If you love creating beautiful and romantic projects, then you will love
the supplies offered by Pro 31 Designs!  Teresa Collins, My Mind's Eye,
Graphic 45, Butterflies, Cameos, Lace, get the idea :)
I can't wait to get started!
I'll be back tomorrow with the Unity Stamp of the Week
Happy Weekend!

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…
