The Snowflake Alteration

We're sharing holiday decor this week over at the 
 So bittersweet as it will be my last project 
as an Imaginisce Design Team member...but a wonderful 
new team has been selected and I'm excited to see what all 
they come up with over the next year!

 I'm a sucker for honeycomb know the tissue paper type
of pretties that you can find to hang from a ceiling or to display as a centerpiece.
I think that they're so whimsical and fun!
So when I ran across this package of three beautifully sculpted snowflakes
at Wal Mart, I just had to put them into the shopping cart :)

 Next, I selected a couple of patterned papers from Christmas Cheer and 
set out to make two layers of pleated medallions.  For the first layer, I cut
two 3" X 12" strips and then scored and pleated at 1/2" increments.

For the bottom layer I cut two 4" X 12" strips and pleated them in the same way.
After both medallions were assembled end-to-end and allowed to dry,
I began layering and embellishing!

I found that the POGO adhesive was the best for adhering the two medallions 
to each other.  Next, add fun die-cuts, ribbon and paper flowers to bring your 
snowflake to life!  
I have this cute little fella hanging from one of my small pine trees beside
the fireplace.  I look forward to creating a couple of non-Christmas ones so
that I can use them throughout the winter months.

I have a yo-yo tutorial up at The Paper Bakery today...come by
and have a look if you have time :)

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…
