She's So Lovely

A good Tuesday to you!
Today is the second installment of the 
I love pairing up Authentique papers with Petaloo anything...they were made for each other, 
which makes any project using the two fun! Today I'm sharing a layout of my daughter with photos
that I took after her last dancing show.
  I started with a background from one of the Lovely papers, "Crush" and a little bit of misting
 in black velvet by Heidi Swapp. The next step was pretty cool...I actually embossed
 a small piece of the "Dearest" paper in a rose pattern and used it as the mat for my photos.

The shabby chic look of the Pink Dahlias mix perfectly with the cute whimsy of the Mini Florettes
 with their blinged centers.  I placed a small round foam dot on the backs of the Florettes
 so that they would really pop up from the embellishment they were added to.

 In keeping with the 'round' embellishment theme, I used the three round seals from the
 "cards repeats" stickers, along with a doily die and round punch.  It's fun to experiment
 with the different punch-outs and stickers to see what will look best and where...Authentique
gives you so many possibilities in all of their collections!

 Be sure to stop by each company's blog to see the
inspiration and leave a comment so that you'll be in the running for

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…
