Back-to-School Welcome!

We're kicking off the back-to-school year today at the
with a quilted door hanging welcome sign!

It makes a great back-to-school gift for your favorite teacher and the kids can help too.

 Start with the 6X6 Paper Pad from the “Teacher’s Pet” Collection.  
Choose as many patterns as you’d like (I chose six).  
Cut the papers into 3x3 squares.

 Next, arrange the squares in an alternating design pattern.  Begin attaching
 to a piece of 12X12 cardstock until it has been completely covered in squares.
  Using a zig-zag stitch, machine stitch between the squares to give it a quilted look.

 Use various Designer Dies from the collection and stickers to create unique
 embellishments for the front of the quilt.  The 6X6 Paper Pad is perfect for die-cutting
 those smaller pieces…saves those 12X12 papers for larger projects!

 For the pair of scissors, two pieces were die-cut from the same paper and 
then layered together with foam adhesive for a fun 3-D look.

If you’d like a sturdier hanger, add a piece of chipboard to the back.  
Next, punch two holes at the top and string a piece of ribbon through for the hanger. 
Now it’s ready to great those back-to-school kiddos!


  1. WELL DONE and CUTE aS can be!!! Love the way you stitch things so often - you are so precise at it!! Hope you are having an awesome day!!

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…
