Halloween Loaded Bags

Happy Wednesday Greetings!
I know I say this a lot about being addicted to things that I craft,
but these little Loaded Bags are the real deal.  
A true crafty addiction!

Here's a peek at my latest Halloween Loaded Bags


I found the flat, black and orange dot bags at Wal Mart in the stationary section.
The bags are roughly 4" X 6".  I folded the bottoms up 2" and then used 
a high-tack tape from Scrapbook Adhesives to the sides to create the pocket.

And as much as I'd love to be a "copic" girl, I just can't seem to part with that
much $ for markers, so....I found these on Amazon and thought I'd give them a try!
I must say they're actually very decent alcohol markers for the price.
Below, I've used them to color in the cute images from Darcie's

I do not profess to be a great color-er with markers, but I think they
turned out pretty good :)


To the inside of the larger pocket, I added this mini "pocket letter"
I cut a row of 3 pockets from a standard baseball card sleeve and then
added ATC cards and other embellishments!  Photos and journaling
can also be added to the sleeves and then placed in a Halloween Daily or planner.


Other pieces of ephemera, tags, die-cuts and cute clips were added too!

I have these listed in my Etsy shop if you don't have them time
to make your own.  Super fun for a teacher gift or happy mail swap :)

So glad you stopped by!  This time next week, I'll be on a plane
to Milwaukee for the "She Loves Color" Event.  I'm beyond excited!
Be sure to FOLLOW ME on Instagram if you'd like to see pictures
of my trip and time there :)

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…
