I am back! Time is a funny thing-I was away from my blog a lot longer than I thought! I knew I was going to take a little break. I was sort of evaluating how I did my blog. Like was I going to change anything?
I've been making projects here and there. I can't stop making. And I have taken photos of my projects. But I haven't been able to type them up and-this is a biggie-get them into a challenge. I have become so challenge driven that I couldn't make something without it being inspired by someone other than myself. And that started to effect my mojo. So I took a step back. Realizing that it's ok to make stuff however I want to make stuff. Am I still going to do challenges-Oh YEAH! I love the opportunity to have my card on the winners page or win a prize-please don't misunderstand me! :) But I have to make stuff for myself also, which is how I got here in the first place. :)
So are there going to be changes? Just a few in that I am going to post some things just to post them. I want to have an online record of making a card or some mixed media project-even if it isn't tied to a challenge or something.
So I am going to start with a couple of Shaker Cards that I made in the beginning--maybe a year or so ago that never got posted.
This card with the stars is made using the diamonds from Queen and Company. The stars are cut from my silhouette. I used my Fuse to make the little bags for the diamonds. And before I gave this card out-I put a thank you in white in the right corner. But I don't have a picture of it completed. I was very happy with this card when it was done. And I loved shaking those diamond pieces. :)
How did I miss posting this card? And I made a boy version of this card but can't find it right now. The frame and dino were cut from my silhouette machine also. This shaker uses a Queen and Company rectangle to keep all of the fun bits from falling out.
I LOVE shaker cards. They are so fun to make. My favorite part is picking out what goes in the shaker. :)
Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time my friends--it's time to shake things up! :)
