Here is the blog list for today's hop:
My project for today was inspired by a new set of snowflake molds
by WOW! Embossing.  After watching a couple of tutorials, I decided that adding
push-pins to the backs of the resin would make a cute gift to put in my daughter's stocking!
She has quite a collection of cute push-pins for her corkboard and she will love these :)

 As you can see, I also made up pins using layered buttons and die-cut corrugated snowflakes.

I assembled my supplies from WOW!: Melt-It Powder; Pastel Blue Embossing Powder; Mold

This is such a cool concept...and if you've never experienced WOW! products, be sure
to check out their website and see if it's for you!  
Before getting ready to melt your powder, you will also need:
Pie tin, spoon, heat gun and a clothes pin or oven mitt

The ratio that I used for my Blue Snowflakes was 4:1 (melting powder to embossing powder)
1- Mix the two together in your tin
(create a 'spout' at one side so that you can pour the melted resin into the molds)
 2- Place heat gun under the tin and heat for approximately 2 minutes or until the powder has
been melted;  be sure to hold the tin with a clothes pin or pot gets pretty warm!
 3- Pour melted resin into each mold.
 4- Press push-pins into the mold and allow to set. 
5- Gently peel the mold away from the resin and you're done!
Again, there are some great tutorials on their YouTube Channel

I created a little banner to go along with my pins:
Banner die by Sizzix and sticker letters by Doodlebug Design.
As you can see, I've used the Blue Snowflake pins to hold up the banner :)

For the black button/snowflake pins, I simply used an epoxy glue when adding the push pin
to the back.  I found the corkboard (all ready in the pretty frame!) at Kirkland's.
I also added some faux burlap bows (by May Arts Ribbon) to the top sides of the frame...
I love how it ties in with the natural look of the corkboard!

That's all that I have to share today...thanks so much for stopping by and participating
in the PaperHaus Blog Hop... your next stop is the AUTHENTIQUE PAPER BLOG

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…
