A Good Bye

Bittersweet is the moment...
but it's time for a very fond farewell to my friends at 
and to welcome in the brand new 2013 team!

We've arranged a little good 'bye blog-hop and I'm the very first stop
after the Imaginisce Blog :)
Be sure to comment at each designer's blog as well as at Imaginisce's Blog
to be in the drawing for the brand new "Love You More" Collection

We were asked to share a couple of our favorite Imaginisce projects:
Layout using "Monster Mash"
"Love You More" Heart Hanging Pocket
Back-to-School project using "Sole Sisters"
Having been such a huge fan of Imaginisce products for years,
it was a dream come true to be selected for the 2012 Design Team!
I fondly remember that feeling that I got when I read the
"congratulations, you've been selected"
email from Cari...I ran outside in my slippers and started
hootin' and hollerin' (we do that here in Texas LOL)
I was literally, literally on Cloud9 with excitement!

And then the first box of goodies came...oh my  the tools and fun things to play with!
I would have to say that, hands-down, my favorite Imaginisce tools are the
I Top Paper Punches and I Top Tool...but wait, I also love the i-magicut!
Aside from my favorites, I was happy to be introduced to tools that helped to
stretch my imagination and think outside the box. 
As far as favorite paper line?  That's a tough one!
I love the soft, sorbet colors of Makin' Waves, but I'm a total and complete
Halloween freak, so I'll go with Monster Mash as my 2012 fav :)
I do have to say that I'm really excited about the new products that Imaginisce
is bringing to us like washi tapes, buttons and sticker sheets...making it even harder to resist!

Being a part of this very talented team and my first 'big' design team, has been
such an honor and such amazing fun! 
I know that the 2013 team will continue to excite us!
To the fans of Imaginisce, thank you so much for all of the encouraging words
and sweet comments left over the year...they have meant so very much to me ♥

**Next stop on the hop is Tiffany Hood**

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…
