OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop



GOOD MORNING HOPPERS!!!!!!!  Welcome to my blog.  Since I created this blog -- let's say 2 years ago, I have had plans to update and enhance it - I still have those plans, and many, many others! 

I enjoy trying new methods and techniques, and decided to try a shaker card for the hop.  Prior to making it, I gave methodology a great deal of thought.  I watched tutorial videos, and picked the simplest one to make my favorite!  After the 1st die cut I realized my mistake and I was off and running.  I know where my 2nd mistake was, but the card was together, and hopefully nobody looking at it online can tell!  But I know!  (Those little blue hearts would stick to "my mistake" if I shook it!)

Here is my red, white and blue "I Love You" shaker card, with blue sequin hearts in the shaker.



I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog.  To head back to the main blog hop page, you this link:                                          http://wp.me/p2kUr6-4o6

  2. I could see right away it was a shaker box. I haven't made one for so long. You need to make some more. They would be a big hit for the troops.

  5. I cannot make shaker cards (they always leak), and YAY for posting your "mistakes" anyway. Isn't crafting FUN?!?!?!

  6. Very cute! I saw a tutorial on shaker cards that said you should glue a few sequins (or whatever your shake items are) on the background anyway so they are not all settled at the bottom. So your mistake isn't a mistake after all, if you do shake it. This is one of those cards that you should make multiples of.

  9. Hi Ronni.. what a fun shaker card.. love it! ~ Pam

    **the gold paper I used for the star on my card is actually poster board that I purchased from Hobby Lobby for around $1.80 a sheet. It's poster board size. It punches beautifully.
