Daily Grind: Dance

If you scroll down a couple of posts you will see the same photos, but
I couldn't help myself..."Daily Grind" by Simple Stories was perfect for helping
to tell the story behind Sydnee's weekly dance schedule.
"Daily Grind" is full of color, attention to days-of-the-week details and more!

You will see a roll-out of many projects using the new collection over the next few weeks:

"Daily Grind" is loaded with chevron patterns. For my layout I chose a couple of different
 colors and cut apart the red one to create a fun border! I then layered on dot patterned pape
r and a 6X8 speech bubble journal card. I used different areas of the speech bubbles as
a background for my photos.  

Syd attends dance two days a week and often has special engagements on Saturdays.
 I pulled the handy days-of-the-week journal tags from the "Bits & Pieces" pack 
and clustered them with a photo. 

A few stickers from the Fundamentals Cardstock Sticker sheet, alphabet stickers and chipboard 
stickers completed the page, along with several brads. You will love how well Daily Grind works
 with any of your daily, everyday photos, as well as Life Documented projects!
 If you like making your own calendar or organzier, this collection will serve as a wonderful tool! 

I appreciate you stopping 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…
