A Snap!

It's Saturday night and I forgot to share my 
card that I had up Wednesday at the Paper Bakery...even made
a 'note-to-self', but I'm just now finding it LOL

I loved working with the cute svg files from the January Paper Bakery Scrapbook Kit
after cutting the pieces out, I set out to play! 
 I chose the camera die-cut and went from there building the focal point of my card.

 I cut the base paper to 1/2″ smaller than the actual card.  Next, I cut a smaller mat from the clouds paper and corner rounded the edges to mimic the journal card by Pink Paislee.  Layers, layers and more layers!  A fussy cut piece of doily peeks out from under the hand-cut banner.  Use foam squares to create dimension and don’t be afraid to layer two foam pieces together to give an embellishment even more height.

 Wanting another touch of the aqua color to tie in with the mat, I cut the word ‘sweetheart’ from the bottom of the clouds paper and attached it amongst the other little die-cuts that I clustered around the camera’s shutter. And a camera wouldn’t be a camera if it weren’t snapping a picture every-now-and-then.  Using a piercing tool and mat, I created holes that I stitched with baker’s twine to create a ‘flash’ effect!

The February Paper Bakery Kits will be on sale soon!

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…
