Pinterest Monday

Good Monday to you!  
It's been a few days since I've blogged so there will
be lots of catching up to do this week :)
First I wanted to share my "Pinterest Monday" card with
"Free Fallin" November Kit & Add-On Kit

Here is a look at the amazing geometrical print that we used
as inspiration for our projects today:
 (credit for photo here)

I was initially drawn to the grid created by the small lines and immediately
 thought of using different swatches of paper in the four segments. 
 And of course I love, love, love circles so I went rummaging through the 
Free Fallin' Kit (and Add-On Kit) for round embellishments to cluster together!

 I made the card a 5X7 size instead of the standard A2;  I just wanted more
 space to showcase the cluster of fun as well as the mix of patterns. 
 I cut a mat to 5X7 and then proceeded to layer on the strips of paper.  
Next, I machine stitched the pieces together to give an even more homespun feel.

 I was excited to try out the wood veneer shapes with the Garden Grass ink dauber beautifully!

 I didn't really want an additional sentiment at the bottom right corner, but I did love the
 idea of recreating the bullet points with a couple of brown brads from my stash (there are
also enamel dots in the kit...I just missed them when making my card!)

And if you're interested, here are the November Scraptastic Club Kits!

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…
