Yacht Club Shadowbox

Ahoy, friends!  I'm up on the 
CARTA BELLA PAPER BLOG
 with a nautical shadowbox that I’ve decorated with pieces from

I started with a 10X10 shadowbox frame with an 8X8 inset. 
 I removed the back of the frame and used it to begin building my design on! 

 I chose the“Nantucket” paper for the main background and then began adding
 clusters of embellishments.  I also added a border to the top and bottom
 of the paper with the Woodgrain Washi Tape.

To the lower, left corner I used the largest label die from the 
Designer Label Set #5 and die-cut the design from side B of the 
“Alphabet Letters” paper.  Next, I layered on one
 of theEphemera label pieceswith foam adhesives.  To the center of it, the
 chipboard sailboat and various stickers and enamel dots were attached.

Now that the inside of the shadowbox has been decorated, it was placed back
 inside of the frame.  I outlined the front of the glass with a trim of red/white/blue 
twine and some fabric glue.  

To finish off the shadowbox, I covered the front of the frame by cutting a piece
 of the “Swimsuits” paper(side B) to just slightly less than 10”X10”. 
 Next, I cut an 8”x8” square from  the very center of the paper and then attached
 to the front of the frame. The edges of the  paper were inked with a walnut ink
 to carry out the rustic, nautical feel!

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…
