Spring Chickadee

I think it’s pretty safe to say that we’re all ready for Spring, 
so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make something fun and “springy”
 with the beautiful Prism Collection by 

  I often use chipboard album pages to create things other-than albums. 
For this project I have taken a 6″X6″ decorative piece of chipboard and transformed it 
into this adorable “Happy Spring” chick wall/door hanging.

First, I traced the shape onto a sheet of the yellow patterned Prism paper and then cut out. 
 The edges were distressed in a walnut ink. Two 1.5″ circles were punched from a 
sheet of pink 6X6 paper and then attached in place of the cheeks.

The beak was made from two 1.5″ squares of orange paper that were glued 
 together and then folded in half at an angle.  Just the bottom portion of the beak
 was glued to the center of the cheeks.  For the wings, I die-cut a roof shape from
 a piece of chipboard and then layered it with a piece of matching yellow paper. 
 The roof was cut in half and inked around the edges.

 Next, all of the pieces were glued to their matching chipboard pieces and assembled. 
 A banner die was used and the chipboard alphas from the collection were used
 to spell out “spring”.

Small holes were punched along the tops of each banner and a piece of white twine
 was stitched through so that the banner pieces could hang in a row.  To the top, two holes
 were also punched and a strand of rustic wire was threaded through to create a hanger.


  1. Absolutely adorable!!

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…
