Laminated Planner Pocket

Have a friend that loves all things "planner"?
The project that I'm sharing today would make a wonderful
gift for any planner lover or someone just starting out!

This sweet planner pocket is a compilation of wonderful products from 
You can find the "DIY Project Pack: Mini Albums" online
The Stack is filled will all sorts of elements that can be cut out:
pockets, pages, tags, flags, tabs, pinwheels, icons and more!
After trimming out the large pocket, I ran the piece through the 

As noted in the top photo, the NEW Xyron Creative Station has the 
capability of holding both 5" and 9" cartridges!

I trimmed away the laminate by using the edge of the pocket as a guide.
The sides and bottom of the pocket were then scored and folded.
Next, I used the Xyron Mega Runner to hold the sides together before machine stitching (I did this just to add texture & a whimsical flair).

After cutting out all of the elements, I made several of them into 'stickers' by
running them through the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker
and then trimming away the adhesive sheet.  

The front was embellished with a pocket that was stitched on, banners, owl motif
and the hand-assembled!

The inside of the pocket was generously filled with all of the components:

The paper stack includes vellum sheets as well!  
I created two pockets, labeled and filled them with goodies.
Twine was added to the tops of the different tags so they're ready to use!

By using the Xyron Laminate to cover the pocket, it will provide an even safer
environment for storing the pieces until they're ready to use.  
The recipient may decide to punch holes along one side of the pocket and
add it to their planner!  

Stop by the Xyron Facebook Page to see even more unique products in
our exchange with DCWV over the next couple of weeks...enjoy :)

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…
