Four or More: Best Buddy

Happy Sunday!  I was recently up at 
with a "Four or More" photo project that I was really excited to take on.
 I'm generally a three-photo-or-less type of scrapper, but I found a
 way to stick with three larger photos and then added a smaller photo as an embellishment! 

I started out by cutting the Shine Patterned Paper (diagonal stripe) apart along 
one of the lines and then layered it on top of the Beautiful Patterned Paper (yellow dot).
 Then I had a thought to create a intersection by adding the reverse side of the cut
 Shine was the perfect juncture for the beginning of the title.

 The photos were printed at wallet size and then trimmed down to leave just a
 small white border around each. I took the photo of Bear and used a 1.75" circle
 die to cut out his face. A 2" scalloped punch was used to create a black 
background for the photo; the two were layered together with foam adhesive. 
By embellishing and adding a bow, it made an eye-catching focal point.

I accented the photos with various chipboard hearts and washi tape stickers.
 I adhered the washi tape to cardstock and then trimmed out...this allowed me to
 add them to the layout with foam adhesive. 
 I typed out the journaling and then trimmed into strips. 
The Transparent Alphas were adhered with a micro adhesive dot, but you can 
also run through through a Xyron Sticker Maker, machine stitch or attach them with brads!

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…
