Making Shaker Cards

Hi Everybody,

So todays video that is "Live" on YouTube is this pretty shaker card made using the Classic Hearts and Scalloped Hearts from Spellbinders and the Curved Borders to create the shape along the bottom.

I have also used some Acetate and craft foam to help make the shaker element

If you have these dies in your personal collection then it is time to get them out again and play.

The spotty card is from  AnnaMarie Designs  and it is really good quality card.

The sequins are some that I have had in my "Stash" for some time. The pearls and the chipboard word are from Want2Scrap

The embossing at the bottom of the cards is with a new folder called  Ripple  and is one of several that have been added to Spellbinders shop

The video is titled   Heart Shaker Card   and I hope that you will enjoy it

Friday Freebies & Give Aways

In the side bar to your left I have added in a "Winners Page" and each time I do a Friday freebie or a Give Away I will add the winning names to that page. You will always be able to come back and find it to see if your name is there ... simply click the photo to go to the page

 I have also extended the time in which to claim the card to 72 hours simply because I don't want these cards sitting around waiting to be claimed.  If the card is not claimed then it will be offered again at a later date.
The winners name will still be posted in the next days (Saturday) blog post so you will need to come back and check if it is you

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
