Just Precious

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I have another
to share, featuring the nostalgic Precious Collection by
I made a similar album a couple of weeks ago and it was so much fun that I decided to
 try it out with the Precious papers, stickers and cut-outs.  To make this particular album,
you will need the Diaper Card Album, which can be found at
You may also find a template online or cutting files for your personal cutting machine.

I went ahead and did a video tutorial because I had so many questions with
 the last mini album.
Please excuse all of the uh's and run-on-words...
you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take the accent out of the girl LOL

And here are the page-by-page close-ups, with the exception off the plain
back pieces found on back of the diaper card.  

 I threaded a few vintage buttons and then attached them to the front with glue dots.
Around the leg openings, I added a soft pom pom trim by May Arts Ribbon.

I had these shabby chic chipboard shapes in my stash from long ago...I love to find
 great uses for old favorites!  When I start a project, I rummage through all of my
 trinkets and small embellishments and make a pile of things that will
go with what I'm working on.

On the page above, I cut the stork and cloud motif from one of the journal cards and then
added it to the page with some foam adhesive.

Before inserting the tags, find the hole placement and then punch each page with a Crop-A-Dile
 or small hole punch.  A small ring works nicely; if you decide to embellish the ring with ribbons,
 then I would choose a larger 1.5" ring.

After cutting the tags from the journal card sheet, I corner rounded the edges and then
 backed them with a white cardstock.  The size of the tags are approximately 3.5"W X 4.25"H
...perfect size to insert into the tops of the diaper.
So, if you're looking for a one-of-a-kind brag book for a new grandma or mom,
then give this album a try!
I hope that the video helps to see how easy, easy it is to put together.
  If you have any questions, please let me know!

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…
