Winter Sparkle

I'm excited to bring a closer look at the "Winter Sparkle" layout that made its debut 
when the Glistening Collection was revealed at
AUTHENTIQUE PAPER
blog.authentiquepaper.com
 I took these beautiful photos the day after Christmas...we received almost 10" of the white stuff 
on Christmas night...almost unheard of in Texas!  I wanted to mimic the rolling hills and valleys 
that were covered in snow so I created my own with paper.
 

I had a blast playing with the patterns and trying to decide just which ones I wanted to use.  
You have to admit that this is one stunning collection...love!
From one of the 6X6 paper bundle sheets, I cut three large snowflakes with a die by Spellbinders. 
 Next, each one was topped with a disc of paper punched from the back of the Components
 sheet and a button.

Although there wasn't much to creating the design, I thought it would be fun to point out that 
there are so many looks you can achieve from making this one cut.  First, draw a wavy line onto
 the back of the paper you are wanting to use and cut out.  

At first I thought this look above would be nice...and then I started shifting the smaller piece 
around and finally decided on the look that you see on the layout.  

For even more contrast, add a strip of paper to separate the two designs or add even more
 wavy patterns! There are so many things that you can do with plain 'ole paper;
  I enjoyed thinking a little outside of my box with this one :)

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…
