Mini BFF Valentines

Hello!  I have a collection of mini Valentine cards up at 
using the February "It Takes Two" Kit and Add-On Kit!

These were made at the request of my daughter, for her three ‘besties’ on Valentine’s Day :)  They’re hip and fun and perfect for 13 year-old girls!

  First I started with a sheet of 12X12 white cardstock from the kit and cut it down to 
measure 7″ X 4.25″.  The pieces were then scored so that the card measures
 3.5″ X 4.25″ when folded; these are an A1 sized card.

 The first card includes the retro inspired ferris wheel sticker from the large sticker
 sheet by Echo Park.  The 3-D stickers by Crate Paper are glittered in gold, so the 
little arrow gave the right amount of shine.

 The second card showcases the softer side of the kit with the light wood grain and 
chipboard accents by Crate Paper.  I wanted to pic up on the bit of turquoise
 blue in the mat paper, so I added the acrylic heart and topped it with a sticker.

This final card is all things X’s and O’s!  There are many elements that boast the hugs
 and kisses symbolism in the kits.  I went with the red and blue pieces and built this 
really cute card.  Just leave off the bow and you have a sweet, but masculine card.

As of today, these kits are still available, as well as other exclusive
Scraptastic Club goodies!  Check it out 


  1. WOW - these are super hip and trendy and majorly fun!! Each one has a dynamic about it that just pleases the heart!! I am so glad you created these cool valentines for your daughter's friends!!! Thank you, by the way, for the super BEAUTIFUL and very AWESOME card I got in the mail from you - it meant so very much so please know I appreciated it!!! You are a doll!!!

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…
