So Rad Frame Album

Hello, everyone!  I shared a unique "So Rad" album yesterday at
 using an assortment of the collection's Chipboard Frames and other embellishments!

I started with the full pack of Chipboard Frames and the 6X6 paper pad from "So Rad". 
 I filled in each of the frame's windows with a piece of patterned paper that was 
glued into place.  A matching-sized frame was glued to the back of each.

 I used dies to cut small photos to fit the frames or just cut the photos down to size.

Stickers, enamel dots, brads and die-cuts were used to dress up the individual pages.

Two pockets from the SN@P! Card pack were also added to the album and a
 tag slipped inside for journaling.

 I left some of the smaller frames without any photos and simply embellished them
 with clear photo stickers and enamel dots.  You can also use the lined papers 
to create areas for journaling.

And don't forget those awesome Chipboard stickers and adhesive brads!

Once the pages were finished, I used the small punch of a crop-a-dile and punched
 holes into the tops of each frame.  Two strands of ball-chain were used to hold 
the pages together.  The perfect little keepsake!

6527 Bradz
6538 Chipboard Frames

All of the newer collections include these style of frames, so have fun
creating your own to fit your theme :)

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…
