A Lucky Charm

 Sharing a project that I had up with Authentique Paper yesterday
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Creating a lucky charm for your home to celebrate St. Patrick's Day couldn't 
be easier with a heart template and a helping of the "Lucky" Collection by
AUTHENTIQUE PAPER
blog.authentiquepaper.com

To begin, a 4.5" X 4.5" heart die, template or cutting file will be needed; 
or free-hand the shape.  Cut the heart four times from the Lucky One paper.
  For a sturdier hanging, the individual hearts may also be backed with
 a lightweight chipboard.

Arrange the hearts so that all of the points are facing in towards the center.
 Place a large circle of paper at the back of the hearts and adhere in the
 center to hold the hearts in place.

Accent the base hearts with a smaller, scrolled version from the Lucky Four paper
 Distress around the edges of the shapes with a walnut ink, if desired.

The vintage motif was trimmed from the Lucky Two paper and added to 
the center (of the now) four-leaf-clover.  The edge of the design was glittered
 with a emerald green glitter.

Two shamrocks were hand-cut from the Lucky Three paper and adhered 
below the vintage image.  The sticker sentiment was added to the center 
and a row of fun buttons were arranged at the top.  

 Any type of material can be used for the hanger: jute, twine, ribbon, wire, etc. 
Add a pretty bow to one side and you have the luckiest of lucky charms
 ready to meet your St Patrick's Day guests!

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…
