May Arts + Scrapbook Adhesives

Welcome to Day #1 of the 
Scrapbook Adhesives & May Arts Ribbon Blog Hop
This will be a week long event with only a few stops each day.
Be sure to stop by the May Arts Blog to begin

**Two spools of ribbon and adhesives will be given away to a lucky commentor**

I haven't had the chance to use this sweet winter collection by Carta Bella,
so I thought making a card for the hop would be the perfect opportunity.
And if you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know how much
I all ready love and adore Scrapbook Adhesives!
I use their foam square adhesives like they're going out of style tomorrow :)

I cut the hexagon paper out around the design and then adhered it to the 
snowflake paper with foam square adhesive.  

After applying a length of the border sticker (again, with foam adhesive), I took a strip of
Crafty Power Tape and attached it just above the border.  With its super high tack, this
tape is made for holding items, such as ribbon, in place.

I looped the checkered ribbon by tucking and folding in a haphazard-fashion...just go with
the flow...whatever you think looks pretty :)  Just press onto the tape and you'll have
no worries about it coming up from its position.

I took a small piece of the Crafty Power Tape, doubled it and then used it to attach 
each of the buttons in place.  Done!

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…
