A Welcome Basket

Hi there, friends!  I'm up today at the 
SIMPLE STORIES BLOG
with a sweet "Welcome Baby" basket brimming with paper flowers
 and baby's info; such a wonderful keepsake for a new mom!

For this project I have used the "Enchanted Collection"...it's ideal for any of
 those little girl projects, even to welcome baby.  The wooden box is one that
 I found at Michael's and measures approximately 4.25"W X 5.5"H X 2"D.  I traced
 the front and back of the box onto a piece of the "Rose" Simple Basic paper and
 then cut out.  Adhesive was applied with the Xyron Creative Station and attached to box.

To the front, one of the printed sides of the 3X4 SN@P! cards was edged in green
 ric rac and embellished with a sentiment cloud from the Bits & Pieces pack. 
 A butterfly was attached to a pixie stick straw and attached with a glue dot.


From the 6X6 paper pad, blooms were punched using the Floriana punch by McGill. 
Two blooms were layered together and then attached to a paper straw.  Floral
 foam was inserted into the box and the flowers arranged in a staggered fashion.  
The baby info was printed off using my home printer and then cut into strips and
 glued to the straws.  Various Bradz, Bits & Pieces and chipboard 
stickers were added to the centers of the blooms.

The sides of the box were covered with strips cut from 6X6 paper and satin bows
 were glued to the sides.

This would also make an adorable centerpiece for a baby shower or a nursery decoration!

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…
