Pixie Tricks

DOODLEBUG DESIGN
has teamed up with Xyron all week long in bringing cute ideas and giveaways!  
Our focus this week has been on one of the newest products: Pixies


For my first card I used the Pixies in a couple of ways:  as the sprinkles on top of the 
cupcake and as an outline to the pattern on the cupcake liner.

 
 Because the Pixies are hollow in the center, it's easy to hand-stitch them with a needle and thread 
just as you would a bugle bead!  To the cupcake 'liner' I outlined the chevron pattern with pieces of Pixies.

 And don't forget...you can add your own banners to the sticks or use the assortment packs,
which are available in the newest themes.

 Up next is a quick and easy idea for using the Pixies, while still creating a punch.
 I used three different colors and attached them as a border.  To make things even easier, I made
 sure that the height of the patterned paper was the same as the Pixies...no trimming needed! 

I chose to use white sequins for the snow, but you could replace these with small snips of white Pixies
I'm looking forward to finding even more creative ways to incorporate these fun embellishments!
 
Stop by the Doodlebug Blog and find out how you can WIN some amazing prizes!
 
Have a great Columbus weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!

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…
