The Spring Season

Okay y'all...seriously, if I could paper my entire
craft room in the new Spring Petite Collection by Authentique,
trust me: I WOULD.
The color combo is every vintage/shabby chic lover's dream!
SEASONS: "SPRING" 
It truly pained me to cut into the papers, but well, I had an assignment due
so it couldn't be avoided.  I came up with this sweet altered
canvas that I can hang up all throughout the year!



I layered cardstock with smaller mats of patterned paper from the collection.
To each piece's edge I distressed with a bit of walnut ink and then machine
stitched in assorted stitches just to keep things fun.
Fun trims added to the whimsical charm and I found myself singing 
"Easter Parade" by Bing Crosby...I mean, in a few shakes this thing could surely
be turned into a wild Easter bonnet of days gone by :)
I used various dies by mftstamps.com and Lifestyle Crafts, as 
well as acrylic birds from Basically Bare.
I.love.it.
Head on over to the Authentique Blog and take a closer look at 
all of those beautiful papers...you will fall in love!
-----------------------------------------------------
Tomorrow I'm back with the altered projects that I created for the
Engaged at Last Collection by Bella Blvd.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

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…
