Happy new week everyone! I hope you all had a nice, relaxing Labor Day weekend!
Just wanted to announce that I will NOT be having classes for the month of September. Things have been too hectic and I really didn't want to put myself under more stress to rush a class in September. But the good news is that I am working on the samples right now for my annual 50 tag class! Yes, the holidays are right around the corner. I know, scary isn't it? Especially for crafters who like to produce handmade cards, tags and gifts! The tag classes will be in October and the giftcard holder classes will be in November. I'm still working out the dates for October because I have a family commitment on the normal day that we usually hold the class (second Saturday and Sunday of each month). I will firm up the dates and announce them as soon as I know! I'm really getting excited about this year's tag class because Stampin' Up! has come out with so many really nice holiday stamps and products that I just can't wait to create and share them with you!
Today's post is a fun shaker card that I've been wanting to create with my partner in crime, Wini. We were initially suppose to get together to start on the tag class, but opted to making this shaker card instead. I just LOVE the way they turned out! Thanks for the fun Wini!! The only thing that I wish that SU comes up in the future would be to have larger stamped images. Don't you? This window needed a larger image to fill the space, so we used the Build-a-Bear die cut. This guy has alot of pieces but was worth the time cuz it turned out so darn cute! Here's my shaker... All products are SU. The DSP is called Jolly Holiday and can be found in the 2010 - 2011 Idea book & catalog. The Dec 25 image is from a set called Tags til Christmas and can be found in the new Holiday mini catalog, including the NEW decorative label punch! Finished it off with an antique brad and gold cord. The cute gingerbread men are from a set called Got Treats? in the IB&C. Did you see the pretty glimmer brad on the top right corner? Those are new too! This is from the brights collection. Sadly, the beads are no longer available through SU...I bought a whole bunch before they retired.
Did you get a NEW holiday mini catalog?? If you didn't and want one, please email me and I will get one to you right away! If you cannot wait, you can view one right now if you click on my the holiday mini catalog on my sidebar...you're gonna love all of the new products!
Anyway, here is Wini's shaker card...pretty much the same except different window. We used nesties to cut the windows. The DSP is from the same Jolly Holiday pack.
