Grace Alone

Grace: It is actually my "word" for 2016.
To show more grace and to be thankful for the grace that has been shown to me.
So many times I pray to be given the "grace to get me through" a certain situation and
in those times I can feel God's presence as He guides me and gives me the
right words and actions to put forth.  
Grace= unmerited favor.  

Yesterday I was up on the Bella Blvd Blog with
this sweet "Grace Alone" hanger

I love adding little hangers to cupboard knobs or giving them for gifts! 
Today I have a colorful, house-shaped hanging featuring the 
Whatever Is Lovely Collection and stickers from the Illustrated Faith line.

I started with a chipboard house shape that I covered with patterned paper. 
I used large enamel dots to outline the scallops of the roofline. The front of the
 house was decorated with one of the 3X4 journal cards and a border of the
 die-cut scallop sticker.

Before dressing the back of the house with patterned paper, pom pom trim 
was glued around the edge, as well as baker’s twine. I hand-cut four butterflies
 from the “Lovely Paper” and layered a smaller one on top of a larger one before
 attaching them. The ‘tails’ of the butterflies were cut from one of the label stickers.
 A cheery ribbon was added to the top and is now ready for hanging!

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…
