Carded & Tagged by Xyron

Today we're getting carded and tagged with these cute, all-in-one
gift card holder tags featuring vintage-style printables and fantastic adhesives from

I've used this set of birthday "vintage kids" printables on a few occasions and 
they're still a favorite to create with...especially quick tags that can be layered with
a few small embellishments.  Everyone LOVES receiving these on a package!

First, I started with some heavy textured patterned papers from Carta Bella.  
For each tag, I cut the paper to measure 6"W X 5"H.  The paper was scored
in half vertically so that it would measure 3"W X 5"H when folded. 
Next, I traced around a gift card to find placement for the adhesive.
(see above)

I used the Xyron Mega Runner
 (permanent adhesive) to apply runs of adhesive
along the outside tracing of the gift card.  The paper was then folded back in 
half and a pocket for the card has been created.

After cutting out each of the printables, I made them into stickers with the
Xyron 3" Sticker Maker.  This is my #1 go-to and favorite way to make just about 
anything 3" or less a sticker.  Just give the cellophane top a good rub before
peeling off and you have a sticker that will stay put!

Now for the fun of putting all of the tags together:

Each of the tags were dressed with a smaller tag on top, a row of pom poms
along the bottom and all sorts of sweet embellishments from my stash!
To the top, I threaded through a strand of twine for hanging and a
whimsical boutique style bow to complete the cuteness!

Now a gift card (or folded money) can be inserted to the top and added to
a gift bag or card front. Aren't they delightful!?!

I'm very excited to be back and designing with Xyron!
I've literally been a crafter for as long as I can remember. I enjoy all types of
DIY, home decor, mini albums, name it!
I look forward to sharing my Xyron projects with you throughout the year, but in
the meantime, please visit the XYRON FACEBOOK
page to see more awesome projects!

Later, y'all!

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…
