Tuesday Talent

Tuesday's Talent

Hi everyone, Mandi here for your Tuesday Talent series. Today, I will be focusing on the Natural Burlap String Navy Blue Burlap String Gold Sequin Confetti and Silver Stardust Sequin Confetti products. The pattern paper I used on this card was from Fancy Pants “Good Fellows” collection. All of these are going to be used on a fun shaker card, which just happens to work for a guy’s birthday. We all know it is hard to make a fun guy card.

Collages

The shaker frame was so easy to make.

  1.  Adhered a piece of plastic (I used a piece of a page protector) to the backside of the chipboard frame.
  2.  Attached foam tape (I didn’t have any so I used foam squares) alone the four edge.
  3. Place sequins inside.
  4. Stamp image/sentiment to pattern paper that is the same size as frame
  5. adhere backing to frame.

To adhere the cork shapes, I applied adhesive to them with the x sticker maker from Xyron. I then laid the the cork stickers on top of the string, this acted as a tape to attached the string.

Thanks for stopping by and I hoped I showed you that sequins / shaker boxes can be used on guy cards.

Shake It Up Scrapbooking

Hi Guys!  How are you?  Laura here today with a shaker layout…

I made a quick cut file using a heart from a dingbats-type font.  I saved the positive hearts – one made it on to the layout and the others will make it on to another.  I made the negatives in to shaker pockets with Magical Ocean sequins and dimensional adhesive tape.

I spread a few sequins from the Magical Ocean sequins around the layout to tie it all together.

And added some journalling tags behind the photo.

I hope you will consider using symbol alphabets to make cut files for shaker pockets.  I even found a free font that is comprised of bunny icons… that is next on my list to try!

Thanks for stopping by!

Now for my two page spread!  I haven’t done a two page layout in like FOREVER and I was definitely missing them.  This month I wanted to mix it up a little bit and do a traditional 12×12 on one side a Project Life style on the other side.  I’m really happy with how it turned out and will probably continue to do more of these.  Here is what it looks like side by side.

And here’s the right side, a 12×12 traditional layout.  Besides my Punxsutawney Kit, I added a few of the cork embellishments from our sold out We Go Together Kit, which was fabulous!!  I think cork is a great accent and works with so many papers and themes.  I love the colors and tones in the Serendipity papers, especially when you mix the contrasting ones together and layers.

And here’s the Project Life side!  I’m using one of the pages in the the Big Variety Pack, Style 3 for this side of my spread.  As you can see, I created a fun sequin shaker pocket at the top right.  To seal the top of that opening, I simply ran a thin line of glue at the top edge and allowed it to dry.  The glue itself does dry clear, but I could still see the glue.  Knowing myself, I’m probably the only one in my family who would notice it!  Nonetheless, I added some washi tape from my stash along the top edge to cover it up.

Abby turned 3 last November and she’s getting to be such a little girl and less baby.  Insert tear here!  We have an absolute blast together on my days off when her sisters are in school. It’s just Mama & Abby, perfect!

Here is one of the first cards I created with my Clique Cards Kit!!  I just love this kit and how many embellishment options I have when creating!!  This was a very fast and easy card to create.  To start out, I cut a piece of the green Bazzil cardstock in half the long way and folded it to create my 5.5″ by 4.25″ card base.  Next I just trimmed this super cute tree paper down to 5.25 by 4″ and adhered it to the front of my card with my favorite foam adhesive from 3L Scrapbook Adhesives, found here. Then, I sprinkled a few fun sequins from the Clique Card kit into my mini glassine bag and sealed with a small strip of 3L Scrapbook Adhesives taper runner before I wrapped the mini bag with some fabulous Twinery Shimmer twine.  Then I just adhered it to the front of my card.  I chose this fun holiday tag from the assortment of Fancy Pants Designs tags from their super cute Oh Deer collection and let the string fall randomly.  To add some sparkle, I used a glue dot to adhere the 15mm snowflake sequin right on top of the Fancy Pants tag.  For a finishing touch of gold I added a Pink Fresh Studio gold puffy sticker along the bottom and TA-DA!! Done!
