A Jar + Farm Girl

I had the most wonderful time this past weekend at a scrapbooking retreat
in Tyler, Texas.  If you ever plan on being in the area, be sure to check out 
Memory Lane's an amazing Victorian home and modified for the weekend scrapbooker!

On the first day there we visited the local scrapbook store and I picked up
some of October Afternoon's Farm Girl papers and accessories to go with the 
cutest 'jar' shaped chipboard mini album from Scrapbooker's Emporium!
(and don't miss the acrylic jar set, which will allow you to create several looks)

 For the cover, I used the templates to build the lid and 'fabric' cover from various
patterned papers.  I kept the design pretty simple since the cuteness of the chipboard girl
goes a long way!

The inner two pages...I love the idea of using the small journaling cards for 
photo mats or jotting down a memory.  

I used an old typewriter for the little sentiment flag and added a flair button to the middle.
And isn't that the happiest pig you've ever seen!?!

And the final two pages incorporating Farm Girl's chipboard, stickers, flair and Sticky Keys!
After adhering the finished pages to the chipboard, I outlined the edges in red/white baker's twine.
I can't wait to use this jar-shaped chipboard again...great for a small recipe book, 
gardening tips or a banner for the kitchen :)

Enjoy your week and thanks for dropping by!

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…
