Get to Stackin'

Greetings!  I'm happy to be sharing one of my most recent crafts for
ECHO PARK PAPER
"Little Man" Stacked Blocks
using the new "Little Man" Collection featuring bright colors and sweet artwork!

Need a baby shower or first birthday centerpiece?  Try your hand at this oh-so-easy project!

 For the boxes, I started with a basic box cutting file from the Silhouette Design Store 
 and kraft cardstock from Carta Bella. The finished boxes measure 4”, 2.75” and 2” square.  The boxes were assembled and then five mats were cut from patterned paper for each box. 
 I used matching chalk inks to shade the edges, but you may try a walnut ink if you’re going for more of a distressed look!  Next, just adhere the mats to the four sides and tops of the boxes.

 Now, let’s embellish with goodies from the collection such as cardstock stickers, 
die-cuts and enamel dots. 

For the sides of the bottom box, I used left over kraft cardstock and the largest Scallop 
Nesting Die (measures 3.25”) to cut out four of the shapes.  Next, I die-cut four 3”circles
 from Side B of the “Plaid” Paper and attached them to the center of the scallops for
 foam adhesive.  For the front, center scallop, the “Boys Rule” Journal Card
  was cut into a 3” circle.


The middle box was embellished with various cardstock stickers and then layered with
 smaller star stickers.  To the top box, I die cut three of the medium-sized star from the
 “Dream Big” Die Set.  They were attached with foam adhesive and then embellished
 with a medium blue enamel dot. 

A hole punch was used to create a hole in the top of the box and a small piece of paper 
straw was glued into place.  A chenille pom pom was a added, along with a banner
 stick and some twine.



Buttons from my stash, larger die-cut stars layered with smaller star stickers were
 used in completing the fun look!  A grand keepsake for any “Little Man” in your life!

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…
