Shake It Up!

Sorry it has been so long since I posted, but family issues prevailed with hiring a new caregiver assistant to help me out with my stepson, Donnie. Well, mission accomplished! So I have been back to stamping and making Shaker Cards just in time for my Holiday Stamp A Stack last night and it seems to have been a hit. The fear of learning how to use the new Shaker Frames has been overcome. Thank goodness! Once you learn what punch works the best with each size of frame and how you are going to frame it out it gets easier from there. I love the way the Spice Cake designer series paper is so inviting and warm and not just for Fall, so I made a series of shaker cards for Christmas. Check out those sparkly Mica Flakes in the shaker frames and the bows on all my cards were made using the Crochet Trim and looping the ribbon and then cinching it in the center with Linen Thread.

All participants of this class received the shaker frames and a container of mica flakes as part of their class fee. Don’t miss out on next month’s final Holiday Stamp A Stack to be held on November 17 or 22 from 6-10 p.m. in my home studio.
