A Thrilling Treat Box

Happy Friday, y'all!
I'm just thrilled to be sharing my very first video tutorial with all of you: 
I've used the brand new Halloween collection, THRILLING by Authentique Paper!

Here is a little peek at the completed project:

 Now for the video tutorial on how to create this all-in-one box:
To complete the front of the box I used a Lace Nesting Die from Lifestyle Crafts
for the large mat and then layered with different circles of patterned paper and stickers
from the 12X12 Details Sticker Sheet.

  Petaloo flowers and a May Arts Ribbon bow add some softness and fun.  
The cute jack'o lantern is from Recollections...I placed it over the pumpkin
that was a part of the sticker design.

And don't forget to dress up the inside of the box!

 To make the box even-more functional, I punched two small holes in the top
of the box and threaded through ribbon for a hanger.
You will also notice that alongside the edge of the box I added a strip of orange
border from the  "Moonlit" paper.  The completed box size is approximately 4"W X 4.5"H
I hope that you enjoy the project and find it thrilling too :) 

I have one more quick project to share using the Thrilling Collection, along with
a couple of punches from McGill, Inc. (this will be up on their blog today too)

 I know right!  Isn't he a hoot?  I used the McGill Vintage Label Punch 
(for the oval shape and wings) to create the bat.  After punching the scrolled label (twice)
I cut it in half at an angle...even the left-over portion would make cute wings too;
I was actually torn as to which wings I liked best :)

I chalked around the shapes with a bit of white just to give some depth.
For the ears, I used one of the blooms from the Petite Petals Punch and
attached it to the back of the oval.  The eyes are two small pearls that I dotted with a
black permanent marker...juxtapose them a little so that he looks batty and confused LOL

 The bottom layers were punched from the Thrilling Paper Bundle using a 2.25" scallop punch
and circle punch.  Oh and the white label is a premade from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for visiting me today!  Hope you have a blessed weekend :)

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…
