Nature Board Book

Happy Thursday!  I was up this week at
DOODLEBUG DESIGNS
with this "Thankful For Nature" Board Book that I created with 
"Happy Camper" and "Friendly Forrest" Collections.

Both of the collections are filled with the cutest critters, so I wanted to showcase
 them in the form of a board book!  I started with a couple of 4.5"X5.5" dies by
Top Dog Dies and sheets of heavyweight chipboard.  

I used some assorted alphabet stickers for the cover.


I cut the base pages from 12X12 papers and the oval inset was cut from 6X6 papers...
I love the mix of larger prints with the smaller ones!  


I'ved added some of the new glittered enamel dots, but if you're making the 
book for a smaller child, you may want to try hand-tied buttons or brads instead.


The new "Chippers" chipboard alphas are perfect for spelling out smaller words!


Doodle Pops and stickers layered on with foam adhesive add interest, 
as well as dimension!

Again, if you're making a similar board book for a small child, 
you may also consider laminating the pages and forgoing the dimensional 
embellishments.  Choose critters that are indigenous to your area and go on 
a nature hike scavenger hunt in search of 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…
