We Dance Together

Today is my very first post as a Design Team Member for

The October Scrapbook Kit, Welcome Home,  includes the new
 collection from Dear Lizzy...5th & Frolic, as well as 
Amy Tangerine's Ready, Set, Go!  This paper kit is just right for
any photos pertaining to home, love, family and happiness ♥

My project today is a 12x12 layout using one of the 
Ready, Set, Go! papers, stickers from the 5th & Frolic sticker booklet
and other embellishments from the October Kit.
 I took the 4x6 photo at the top and cropped the bottom two photos down so that
they would measure the same width across.

The kit also comes with this cool 1.5" chevron had me thinking "arrow" so
I cut one end into a point and the other into a dovetail.  I also pleated the ribbon just
a bit to give it more dimension and interest.

The icing on the cake is when you get to start adding the extra little bits.
You know I love the 'visual triangle', so I formed one using small punched circles
and a few flecks of shimmery ink spray (I used Fireworks Pear Tart by Tsukineko)

I applied the small banner stickers with a foam dot and then strung a bit of
baker's twine over the top.  Adding the bow at one end gives the appearance that
it's really suspended from the page :)

If you love Dear Lizzy and have been anticipating the release of 5th & Frolic, then
why not try The Paper Bakery if you haven't already :)  And there will be mixed
media kits available as well...all monthly kits coordinate beautifully together!

Back tomorrow with the.....(I'm excited about this one...)
oh yeah!
Glad you came by!

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…
