Bon Voyage!

Do you have that someone in your life who loves
to hop on a cruise ship and sail away? My parents are constantly
 going on a cruise, so I made these with them in mind.
Today at Authentique Paper I have
 a neat way to send them off in style with the 
Anchored Collection!

Take an ordinary windowed bakery bag, decorate and then fill with fun treats
 that they can use and enjoy: sunscreen, Dramamine, snacks, journal, a new 
iPod etc....choose a larger bag if needed!

First, you'll need a bakery bag, or two, or three...you can find them here

Next, using either round dies, punches or a template, match up the size of
 the window opening with the smallest die possible. 
Select a die that is roughly 1/2" larger  than the inner die.

Layer the two dies together onto a selected piece of Anchored Paper and cut!

Turn the shape into a life preserver by decorating with just a few snips of paper
 that have been glued to the sides as shown above.  Adhere over the window 
with foam adhesive for an even more dramatic look.

If you decide to also decorate the front with paper, first determine the width and height 
and then measure in from the sides to find the exact placement for the
 smallest die and then cut.  Add any embellishments, such as brads or 
hand-sewn buttons before adhering to the bag.  
That's all there is to it!  This would also make a handsome treat bag for a
 nautical themed baby shower or birthday party!

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…
