Urban Traveling in a SN@P

A very happy and GOOD FRIDAY to you!
I just returned home from 'work'
'Work' if you call creating beautiful page kits 'work'
Scrapbooker's Emporium is in the process of creating several one-of-a-kind page kits with some
 of the greatest new hot releases...if you love a collection kit with a little twist, then you will love these ;)  
I'll be sure to let you know when they're up and ready for preview and ordering!

Yesterday was so busy that I forgot to share my blog post for 
   We took the kids on a Spring Break cruise and I got a lot of great pictures that I wanted to scrap with Urban Traveler.  Of course, being a scrapbooker, I had this collection in mind while snapping photos! 
 I was so tickled to see a comment from a SS fan from the town of Progresso, Mexico, where these photos were taken...small, small world!  
 I made a collage of four photos into a single 4x6 print by using an app by
This is such a wonderful tool if you haven't given it a try (and it's free!)
 I lined up the photo with one of the artistic journaling cards and went from there in matting with a patterned paper.  The blue 'wavy' piece at the bottom was traced from a template by Kiwi Lane Designs.  

 Along with a few die-cuts clouds and buttons from my stash, I created a trio of flags by attaching the SN@P stickers to a wooden toothpick and wrapping around the excess.  I attached them to the page by adding small foam squares to the back of each flag.

 We had a vintage typewriter available at a retreat that I attended this past came in sooo handy when I got ready to journal on one of the SN@P journal cards!  I just tucked one of the pockets behind my photo and then slid the card inside.
Products: SN@P- Stickers-Icons; Color Vibe-Yellow & Green Chevron/Mini Dot and Red Dot/Stripe Papers; Colorfusion Pockets; Urban Traveler- Navy Dots/Ledger Paper; 4x6 Journaling Cards Elements

 For the card I went with a simple design and color scheme.  I'm really loving the SN@P Small Dot and Striped papers together...can't you tell? :) I wrapped a light pink doily around the bottom of the pocket and glued in place.  To the top, I layered two different colored SN@P sticker tabs together.  A couple of embellishments added to the center and my card was complete!

That's all for today...I have some catching up to do on Curtsey Boutique projects, so
I'll get those listed tomorrow.  Have a happy and blessed Easter!

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…
