Wedding Shadow Box

Last week I shared a tutorial for a wedding keepsake at 
  1. Using a computer’s Word Program (or something similar), create a text box that would be the
    same size as the photo for the frame. The text box can be formatted to include a border of lines
    or dashes. Next, select a font (Centeria Script Demo) and begin typing the information that is to
    be shared. Print a sample and make adjustments if necessary .
  2. Next, attach patterned paper over the pre-printed area with a small bit of adhesive at the top.
    Place the paper back into the printer and print.
  3. Trim the patterned paper down to size.
  4. Apply foam dots to the backs of the two corrugated silhouette shapes and attach to the top of
    the patterned paper as desired. Place inside of frame.
  5. Using a high tack adhesive, attach a paper doily to the top, back of the frame.
  6. Attach a flatback adhesive pearl to the center of a felt flower. Adhere flower to the center of a
    paper bow with a fabric glue or Glue Dot. Adhere bow to the paper doily, allowing the bow to rest
    on top of the frame.

This would make a sweet presentation on a guestbook signing table or amongst a 
cluster of photos of the couple.  With a few modifications, place setting markers for the wedding party
participants could be created as well!

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…
