Our Love Soars Pocket Mini

Don't you love giving handmade? 
 Today I have a really quick and easy "French Kiss" Mini Album that
 features pocket pages that can hold tags, handmade coupons, gift cards, etc. 
 It's double-the-fun!

To begin, I sorted through the patterned papers and components from the 
collection and chose several of the pieces sans red accents.  
Next, I cut three different papers into 9"X6" strips;  you will be able to 
et two pocket pages from each 12X12 paper.  
Reserve the leftover paper for photo mats.

Each of the six 9"X6" strips were scored at: 3" and 7"; turned and scored at 5.5". 
 The papers were folded along the score lines and the flaps
 secured with a permanent adhesive tape. 

The fronts and backs of the pocket pages were accented with 3"X4.5" photo 
mats that were cut from leftover papers, as well as papers from the 6X6 Paper Pad.

I created grassy hills using a circle die and Limeade Petite Print Swiss Dot paper.  
This is a perfect way to anchor pieces such as lampposts, puppies and people!

To finish, a small hole was punched at the top left of each pocket page 
and a binder ring strung through to hold the pages together.  
Die-cut tags were added to the pockets and embellished at the tops with 
mini paper clips and die-cut hearts.  It may be mini, but there are tons 
of places to add photos, journaling and keepsakes!

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…
