Birthday Girl Gift Album

Make this special mini album as a gift for the birthday girl’s mom
she would love a place to document that first birthday with photos and journaling
of the day's events.  
The album features the new "Birthday Girl" Collection by
ECHO PARK PAPER
 
 
Begin by making the base pages.  Start with the Set of Frames from the
 Silhouette Design Store. The largest scallop frame and the ric-rac style frame were
 used and cut from Carta Bella’s Linen cardstock.  The pages graduated in size from 
 4.5”X4.5” for the cover and 6.5”X6.5” for the back page.  Two of the same shape were
 cut and then adhered together to form a sturdier page.

A scalloped mat was cut for the front cover using the Scallop Nesting Dies and then
 layered with stickers from the Birthday Girl Alpha and Element Sticker Sheets.

This particular album is a flip-up style album, so keep that in mind when planning
 out the embellishments and paper’s pattern direction.  Off-set embellishments
 (especially if foam adhesive has been used) so that the pages will rest neatly
 against one another.

 Mix in enamel dots and decorative brads from other collections to dress up the pages.

  

Because of the smaller design scale, the 6X6 Paper Pad pages are just 
perfect for mini albums!

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…
