Magical BIrthday Mini Album

Unicorns and bright, candy colors make the perfect setting for any girl's birthday album! 
  I'm sharing one of my favorite go-to mini scrapbook albums using the
 "Lots of Luck" Collection.  This collection is filled with unicorns, hearts, 
flowers and other non-St. Patrick's Day icons so think of it for your next project!


To get started I chose three sheets of the Petite Print Swiss Dot papers 
and cut them in half as follows:
Green Dot: cut at 5"= 5" and 7" Pages
Pink Dot: cut at 5.5"= 5.5" and 6.5" Pages
Orange Dot: cut at 6"= one 6" page
Next, score all of the pages in half so that they measure the 
height (above) and 6" wide.  Apply a strong adhesive to the bottom opening to
 create a pocket for each page.  I chose to use a binding machine to die-cut the
 holes, so that was also done before the pages were decorated.






Each of the pages were embellished with a photo mat and other components 
such as washi tape, enamel dots, icon die-cuts, stickers and 3D embellishments.  
I also used the cut-apart journal cards to create small pockets on the pages.
  Simply add a thin-width adhesive along the bottom and sides and 
then slip in a tag or two!






I used a sentiment from the new "Rainbows & Unicorns" Doodle Stamps 
for the tag on the cover.  The set includes a lot of generic sentiments that
 can be sprinkled throughout the album. 

I hope that you enjoyed this "magical" mini album and will give the design
 a try the next time you're in need of a quick birthday gift!

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…
