Vintage Blissed

--Here for the PaperHaus Blog Hop? Click here--

Things were vintagely blissful at Simple Stories yesterday as I shared
a fun and girly layout of my daughter.  Vintage Bliss is just the perfect backdrop
for all of those spring-themed, shabby chic, girly girl kinds of projects.  
See it all at Simple Stories:

As with all Simple Stories Collections, you have areas of patterned papers that are pretty well designed 
for you...all you need is a photo or photos, a few cute embellishments and you're done.  
I love that this particular 6x12 Page Element has all ready created my title for me!  

 I cut a trio of butterflies from the Be Happy paper and embellished the centers with
 heart stickers and glittery gems. I needed a little something horizontal to keep up with all of the vertical elements going on, so I cut this journaling block from one of the Journaling Card Elements

And finally, the top corner got a bit dressed up too with a cloud and banner sticker!

Supplies: Vintage Bliss- Give Love Paper; 2x12 Border & Title Strips Elements Paper; 6x12 Page Elements Paper; Be Happy Paper; Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers

Next, I have an easy, easy card that would surely brighten someone's day!
 Again, the Elements papers do so much of the work for you!
  I added a bit of fun detail by stitching on some rays of sunshine with yellow & white baker's
 twine and then topping off with a cute flower sticker.

 Supplies: Vintage Bliss- Teal Chevron/Lined Notebook Paper; 4x6 Vertical Journaling 
Cards Elements Paper; Live Simply Paper; Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers

Vintage Bliss, along with the other Winter CHA Collections will be in your stores
very, very soon!  Don't miss that Simple Stories will also have Decorative Brads,
Layered Embellishments and Chipboard Stickers...I can't wait to see these new pieces myself :)

 So glad you've stopped by today!


  1. This new collection from Simple Stories is yummy --- LOVE the colors! What a great title to compliment that fun photo! And I just love your sweet card!

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…
