Solstice Summer: Time of Our Lives

My husband and boys recently returned from their annual fishing trip to Canada; 
 quite the jaunt for some guys from Texas, but they literally catch hundreds
 of fish and look forward to the trip months in advance. I sent my old point & shoot
 camera with them as was thrilled at some of the 
scrapbook-page-worthy photos that they captured! 


While thumbing through the 12 x 12 papers, the ombre side B of the 
Maui Patterned Paper caught my eye and reminded me of water as it gets deeper.
 I cut the paper down to 11 x 11 and centered it onto a sheet of white cardstock 
before machine stitching around the edge. Next, I decided on the journal card, 
“The time of our lives”, and used a 3.5″ circle die to cut it out. 


I stayed with the circle theme and proceeded to cut a large, yellow mat from the
 Trunk Bay Patterned Paper; I used a 9″ plate as the template. Next, 
I used the remainder of the journal card pattern to cut out smaller 1.5″ circles. 
 For the title, I cut apart the “Hello Summer” Puffy Sticker and attached
 it around the contour of the round journal card. 


I placed the smaller circles in a fashion to resemble bubbles and accented 
with several shapes from the Gold Foam Shapes. Finally, I used a ruler and 
thin-tipped black pen to draw on lines for journaling at the bottom. I love the 
versatility of the “Solstice” Collection and how you can fashion it around any 
Summer activities whether it be a trip to the beach, camping or a fishing trip to Canada :)

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…
