It's Great to be Queen

Queen of the Witches!
For today's blog hop with 
I've concocted yet another Halloween goodie to 
hang in my scrap room :)

First, you should be arriving at my blog from Rose's Happy Place!
Next, please excuse the was rainy when I took the photo
(so glad for the rain though!) and hard to find adequate natural light.

I used two parts EAD for this little plaque: 
I traced a design (using an album shape from Maya Road) onto chipboard
and then one a little larger for the backing.  I then traced mirror images onto
patterned papers by My Mind's Eye.  And you know me, I had to trim the edges
in baker's twine!  I then layered the two pieces together with foam dots, which
allowed enough room to be able to slide the ends of the pipe cleaner down into.
For the owl, I applied it to a piece of kraft paper and then trimmed out.
Super quick and easy project
Now it's time to head over to Amy Tsurata's Blog!
Thanks for hopping with us!

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

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…
