My turn for a monthly tutorial over at 
I never really know about tutorials...this may be old news or completely new news to you,
but either way I hope you enjoy the little tut and a few projects with how I used the finished product.

How to make fringe from a sheet of tissue paper:

Here are two really cute things that I did with the fringe...albeit it's a little late for
Valentine's projects, but they could be easily adapted for other fun holiday packaging!
From a 6x12 piece of vellum, I made four small 2.5″ square pockets that I tucked printed Valentine coupons into!  A hand-cut heart and some fussy cutting from other papers added some whimsical charm.  I simply used a strong adhesive to attach the tissue fringe to the bottom of the pockets.

I created a small pocket with the vellum sheet included in the January Paper Bakery Scrapbook Kit.
  I layered on various matted pieces of patterned paper, along with the sweet die-cuts from Pink Paislee!
  I absolutely LOVE how the kraft tissue ties in with the sweet heart stickers, also found
in the kit.

I've had a creative blast working with the February Paper Bakery Kit.  
So full of bright colors that you can't help but *smile* as you there's flair buttons
AND printables that are exclusive to the Paper Bakery...stop by and sign-up today!

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…
