Dress It Up With Sequins

 Hello, friends!  I love working with sequins.  
In fact, when I was *much* younger
I collected those cute felt applique kits and spent hours stitching sequins onto
Santa's beard or Frosty's hat.  I like that you can really glam something up or just
add a subtle sparkle with a lot or a few sequins!
So today I have two card variations using a little and a lot of Doodlebug sequins.

I think that my most favorite way to add sequins is to hand-stitch them.
For this card I first started with a set of thin dies, felt and a scratch piece of paper


The thing that I love most about Doodlebug's sequins is that you get a nice 
mix of flat, opaque, clear and shiny pieces in each jar.  I also used some 
clear sead beads that I had on hand, which is a necessary component when
stitching sequins...plus it looks pretty too!

You could also make the stitched motif removable (from the card) and 
add a pin back or piece of magnet so that it can be displayed in other ways.

Doodlebug Products are from the Sugar Shoppe Collection and Cupcake Sequins

 This next card goes with the less timely approach to adding sequins...mini adhesive dots!
I've used the 3/16" High Tack Adhesive Dots by Xyron;  a great size for sequins.

I simply followed the dot design on the patterned paper in attaching the sequins.

Doodlebug Products are from the Sugar Shoppe Collection and Lily White Sequins.

I hope that you find some fun ways to add Doodlebug Sequins to your projects too!

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…
