Pocket Scrapbooking With Top Dog Dies

Good Friday Morning!  
I was so honored to have been asked to rejoin the 
Design Team for the remainder of the year :)
I really enjoy working with their dies and finding new and unusual ways to use them.

For today's assignment I selected a set of dies that I never had the chance to use:
With these, I made a set of 3X4 Pocket Cards for pocket scrapbooking!

I started by cutting a sheet of embossed (dot) cardstock to 3" X 4" and then 
rounded the corners with a punch.  Next, I cut various patterned papers 
(by Doodlebug Design) to 2.5" X 3.5" and corner rounded the edges as well.

 For each card I die cut the different shapes from the set and then added them to 
the card with either foam adhesive or used the Xyron 1" Sticker Maker.

Because the cards are designed to slide down into a pocket, I kept
the dimension minimal...which is hard for me 'cause I love dimension :D

I also cut some lettering from the same embossed cardstock with the 
Vintage Alphabet Die Set.  I few more accents such as twine and enamel dots
and the cards are all ready for journaling and filling pages!

Visit for more ideas :)


  1. Way to go - these are adorable pocket page pieces!! Thanks for showing us how!!

  2. I don't know how I missed this...congratulations on re-joining the Design Team and I plan to make these identical 3 x 4 cards myself! LOVE them!

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…
