A Hoot of an Adventure!

Happy June, y'all!  
With Summer and camping weather around the corner,
I couldn't wait to break out the new 
"Adventure Collection" by Authentique Paper
and make something to hang in our camper!

 I had this adorable owl cutting file on hand from Miss Kate Cuttables and I knew that I
wanted to use it in some form or fashion. I cut him from some Core'dinations cardstock
and a polka dot paper (Seasons: Autumn Collection).

The cutting file also comes with a tree branch, which I cut from the woodgrain paper. 
 The leaves were cut from two colors of green found in the Adventure 6X6 Paper Pad
 I also die-cut a couple of oval shapes from two of the paper pad papers and then 
added one of the sentiments with foam.

 I cut the base of the hanger using a scrolled album die by Top Dog Dies
I added some machine and hand-stitching to give a more homespun feel. Two holes 
were punched at the top and some faux burlap ribbon by May Arts was tied for the hanger.

There will be lots more to see of "Adventure" on the Authentique Blog :)
Have a great weekend!

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…
