12 Days of December Documented

This past week at SIMPLE STORIES, we shared
all sorts of projects with Daily Grind, SN@P! and Spellbinders!
I received the Wonky Rectangles, Layered Poinsettias and Classic Ovals by Spellbinders,
so I went with a tag-style mini album focusing on the "12 Days of Christmas"
 
For the base of the album, I started with Spellbinder's Wonky Rectangles Nestabilities  
and used the largest (3.25" X 4.25") die. I first cut the shape from a thin weight chipboard 
and then various papers from the 6X6 December Documented

Although using smaller dies from the same set would also look just as sweet, I decided to
 go with an oval shape (2.25" X 3") from the Spellbinder's Classic Ovals Nestabilities. 

And I just fell in love with Spellbinder's Layered Poinsettias ...I use a lot of snowflakes for winter/Christmas themes, so this was a nice change! For the front, I used two of the smaller
 poinsettia shapes and then glittered the yellow centers.
Before attaching the little penguin guy to the top of the cover, I applied him to a piece of paper
 and then trimmed out; this added stability and also took away the sticky. To the bottom, 
I glued on a pom pom trim from May Arts Ribbon.  

Above and below are all of the pages to commemorate the 12 Days of Christmas.
 When adding photos, I plan to use one of the smaller ovals to die-cut my photos.
 Between each 'day' I have added a cut-down piece of overlay from the 
December Documented Collection Kit, as well as SN@P! Pockets and 
December Documented 3x4 SNA@P! Cards

 

 










This concept would also make a cute brag book for a new mom or grandma. 
Add more SN@P! pockets and fill with movie tickets or gift cards...a gift within a gift! 
 Let me know if you have more ideas or how you would use a mini like this!
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…
