Life Gets Stormy

Life Gets Stormy:

Unfortunately we all have moments or times in our lives where life is not working out well.  Thank goodness for those friends who walk life with us when we can barely do it.  This shaker card celebrates those relationships.

I love the sentiment and it comes from a wonderful stamp set that is retired from CTMH.  I love it some much it has a permanent residence in my stamp collection.

The contents of the shaker are “happy”.  Flowers, stars, pearls, silver beads and more “toppings” from Queen and Company (Shaker, die, and topping are from here).  This card is on the Shaker Card Party Buffet.

Best Friends Layout

Best Friends Layout:

This is another layout that you can create with the Some Kinda of Wonderful Workshop Your Way kit.  The directions are available for you to download on the website unless you purchase it through my cash and carry at the crops where I’m vending or the my house.  My store is open on Tuesday and Thursdays for cropping and shopping as well as various weekends for CropTastic. Even if you don’t come to crop, you can come to shop and visit with us.

This layout would be good for a sleep over, a spa day with the girls, a girls’ night out, and whatever fun day you might have with your girlfriends or your daughter/niece and their friends.

The title is created using the Compliments over the top of the zip strip with the “Best Friends” stickers and the glitter crosses.

The glasses are super cute with the heart shapes.  They are one of my favorite stickers in the pack.  I have some pictures of two of my friends and I having a spa day a few years ago.  I’m going to pull them out and put them in these pages.  =)

The Little Moments

The Little Moments

 

Here’s another one of the Butterfly Shakers using this great stamp set from the Flower Market Cricut Bundle.  It’s really awesome with all of the mixed font sayings.   I designed this to celebrate those little moments in life that make it so wonderful.  Facebook posts up memories and one of the ones they reminded me of is how I love watching SG play with dandelions and blowing away the seeds.  It’s not monumental.  It’s a little moment and it’s special.

See, isn’t she beautiful with her dandelion.  I hope she’ll always find pleasure in these little moments of life.

The shaker and die for the shaker are from Queen and Company.  The insides of this shaker are sequins and some seed beads that I think I got from AC Moore.  These matched the card better.  The sequins are from the Dreaming Big Sequins.  And those great silver glitter gems are no more as the Sugar Rush gems are sold out.  Per  sadness on that one.   I love this ribbon and you can get it in the Enchanted Ribbon Collection.

 

I put a little bitty gem on the “i” in “little”.  Super happy with this shaker card.  It’s part of the Shaker Card Party Buffet.  You can get it at the Harbor Scrapbooking event in April or at one of my CropTastic’s in May.    The paper is Blossom which is retired but I had a few sheets in my paper stash!  Loving getting to use up the stash.

We Are Blessed

We Are Blessed

This card is made by April Smith, a guest artist and crafter who works on my creative team when I’m short on time.  I’m so blessed to have her in my life.  The stamp set is S1704 Flock Together, the April Stamp of the Month (SOM).

These cute little quails are fun to work with.  I added in the shimmer in different places because I love these pens.  They really add a little extra to the quails back.  You could color them in if you desired with our wonderful Shin Han Touch markers.

One of the hold over from the Seasonal Expression 1 will be these wonderful Black and White enameled gems.  They go with everything so you must have a stash to use.  Even adding shimmer brush to the “love this?” sentiment makes it pop a little.  This sentiment will be great to add to scrapbook layouts by a picture of something you really like.

 

The bright colors of the Some Kinda of Wonderful paper pack are bright and more summery, thus a good paper to have on hand as we go into summer time.

First Butterfly Shaker Card

First Butterfly Shaker Card

This is one of the shaker cards that will be on the Shaker Card Party Buffet.  The stamps, paper, and embellishments are all CTMH.  The shaker and die are from Queen and Company.  The paper is Hello Lovely which will be with us for the next 2 weeks before it’s retired.  The Sugar Rush gems retire and are already gone!  So be sure to check them out.

The stamp set is from the Cricut Flower Market Cricut Cartridge Bundle.  It’s one of my favorite stamp sets to use because all of the sentiments are a mixed font and look marvelous.

The shaker is full of sequins and diamonds from Queen and Company.  The butterfly is made from Sorbet cardstock and I put the cut outs from the butterfly wings inside the butterfly shaker to provide a consistant solid background for the shaker contents.  The way I have it placed on the card is over different papers and didn’t look right.   Using the cutouts fixed that.  The Queen and Company shaker kits come with the transparencies for you to use.
