Cookies For Santa!

Oh wow!
I just realized that I never shared my
layout that I made for The Paper Bakery!

 For my layout, I started with a dove grey cardstock from my stash and begin building from there.
  I really love layering and showcasing different patterns of papers/ephemera, 
but my layouts of late have not been focusing on that technique.
  SO, I began with the intention of using an assortment of various sized papers as a mat for my photo.
 Behind the photo I tucked in the stamped tag from the November Kit 
and adding a bit of journaling to it.  The washi tape created a whimsically fun
 splash of color as I used it as a border at the bottom, as well as flags for my banner title.

 Working around the photo, I added a few pieces from the Mixed Media ephemera pack, 
sticker letters and washi from the Scrapbook Kit and then a few odd and end pieces
 from my collection.  I also hand-stitched a few X’s to help fill in space and add color.
Doesn't my little baker look happy!?!
It's almost that time again to start baking up some Christmas goodies...I can't wait!

The debut of the December Paper Bakery Kits is coming soon so stay tuned :)

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…
