Card Christmas Album

So last week I shared a card that I made with 
A2 Card Die #4... Today I have a beautiful Merry Christmas Album 
that I made with this same die!

Along with the A2 Card Die #4, I've used the Ornament & Tags #1 Die Set.
All of the pretty papers, chipboard and stickers are from Pink Paislee's "Snow Village" Collection.

I used one of the gold foil die-cut ephemera pieces in the collection to cut the
tops for the ornaments and then layered the pieces onto the album front with foam adhesive.

Above, I turned one of the lacy SophieA2 Mat Dies into a journal card by
drawing a few lines onto the piece with a Zig pen.

 Some of the Snow Village embellishments layered together with some May Arts' seam binding.

For the base pages, I actually used the back piece from a paper any light-weight chipboard;
or heavy weight chipboard will work too since this is a steel-rule die.
Because this die will also score, just be sure to not 'bend' the chipboard or the 
patterned papers after you have ran them through the die-cutting machine.

For the final page, I took one of the Mason Jar Album Finishers and used it for a
journaling area.  Again, I simply drew on some lines with my Zig pen.
 I love the generous sized-album that this die created...I look forward to
trying out a couple of other designs with it in the near future...let's hope it works out
on paper like I have it pictured in my head LOL

Goodbye for now!

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…
