Halloween Mini Book Happy Mail

Happy everything-Halloween month!
I'm so excited that one of my favorite months is finally here.
To go along with this month is one of my favorite things to make: happy mail!

I started with this cute, clear cosmetic bag (6.5"X4") that I found at 
The Dollar Tree and crafted items to fit neatly inside.


To the zipper pull I attached a shower-curtain ring that holds a spool of washi 
tape and a package of bradies.


Next up is this sweet little mini album!  To create this I followed the ingredients below:
12X12 sheet of paper scored at 3", 6" and 9"; turn the paper and repeat the scores again.
Next I cut the 3" and 9" vertical lines just up to the 3" horizontal lines.  
To assemble the pages, I folded the pages and attached the panels to the one next to it.  
The first panel and last panel will be single pages that you can attach together
at the end of the process.

After decorating the cover and the inside pages with a swatch of paper, 
I kept the inside embellishments to a minimum so that it could still be folded.





Stickers, sprinkles, die-cuts and clips are perfect additions for the tiny-mini!

Lastly I made up an ensemble of bitty embellishments and a layered button sampler.


I started with some of the punch-out tags and then layered on the die-cut tickets, 
stickers, doodle pops clips and sprinkles!  For the buttons, I used a 3D adhesive dot 
to attach enamel sprinkles to the centers of the buttons.  Removable dots were used
to add the buttons to the cute tent die-cut.

Now isn't that sweet!  All of those yummy colors will make your pen pal drool :)

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…
