25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 - DAY 20 - Hourglass Shaker Card

Hi and welcome to the DAY 20 of 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS tutorial series!

Today I am going to try out a new approach to shaker card and create an hourglass structure inside the card. This way we can see the beads/drink pouring from the pot into a cup. 

This is the first time I am making this type of a card so I also faced some new problems and had to find a solution to them. Watch the video below where I am explaining the entire process step by step!





Thanks for stopping by today! Hope to see you again soon!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 - DAY 19 - Snow Angel Shaker Card

Welcome to the DAY 19 of 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 tutorial series!

Today I am creating a shaker card featuring some products from DIECEMBER release by Simon Says Stamp.

I combine two really intricate dies to create a focal image. They are so stunning you won't need much more than white and silver cardstock and plastic jewels to finish off the card. Watch the beginning to end video tutorial below and I hope to see you again soon!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 - DAY 18 - New Beginnings (Shaker Card)

Hi and welcome back! It's the DAY 18 of my 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 cardmaking tutorial series.

Today I am creating a shaker card with a window open at the top edge. I'll be using products from the Papercraft Society January kit. Although the kit is spring/summer themed I am going to adjust it to winter season just by adding a few snowflake shaped sequins from my stash. 

The first part of the video below is a quick unboxing and product demos and then well jump straight to the shaker card tutorial! Thanks for visiting today! Hope to see you again tomorrow - I'll be back with another shaker card tutorial!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 - DAY 16 - Boundless Shaker Card

Hi again and welcome to the DAY 16 of 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 tutorial series!

It has just occurred to me that 15 projects of the series have been published but I've made only one shaker card so far! Something should definitely be done about this situation so here we go - a shaker card tutorial!

Note that the shaker frame looks completely open on the two longer sides of the card and it creates the illusion of sequins floating in the open air. And to make this design even more intricate I have added an open frame with a scene in the center! Watch the video tutorial to learn how to make it!




Thank you so much for visiting today! I will be back soon with the project #17 and I hope to see you then!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 - DAY 14 - Hanging Gift Box Ornament - with Helen Griffin

Hi and welcome to the DAY 14 of my 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2019 tutorial series!

I have a very special guest joining me today - meet Helen Griffin!



Just like me, Helen has her own line of products - Simply Made Crafts. It's a real treasury of dies meant to create boxes, gift bags and other 3D projects. And as the name suggests - the projects are super easy to put together and are suitable even for beginners!

I am also encouraging you to visit Helen's YouTube channel - lots of interesting ideas to discover there!

Today Helen has created a project with Paper Discovery dies (designed by me) and I have made a project using her products.

Look what Helen came up with!



And here is what I have made with her dies! :







I hope you enjoyed today's collaboration! See you back soon!
