Shakin' It Up a bit

I completed this card for Aymee's July 15th - July 31st Challenge at JS. I had fun with it as I do love me some shaker boxes. They are so easy to make and so cute when they are done. I tried to host a challenge similar to this a while back on another board but the board owner freaked out saying it was stupid and too hard - well MEH to her and lookie at my shaker box card!!!


Now, I don't like the overall card itself but I love my little shaker box. I filled it with liquid - now that was M-E-S-S-Y!!!!

Oh yeah, see the flowers??? I made 'em myself from a tutorial at Inspirational Techniques and Tutorials!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Happy Scrappin'............

Over and out ya'll..................

Hi Karen
Great shaker card, I have made loads of these but never one filled with liquid! I am in your Sisterhood of Blogging Sisters, exciting times ahead. You have some fab layouts, haven't got into scrapbooking yet! Have piles of pics to scrapbook, its just a matter of time....
Catch up soon

The card came out beautifully!!! Great Job Karen!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
