This week’s theme and monthly prize
Shakers are every where these days! There are so many fun tutorials out there (did you see my balloon shaker card here?). This week’s Amusing Challenge is Shake it Up! Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc. Based on reader input late last year, I will be changing up the way I award my monthly prize! We’ll still have the Top 3 winners but now every participant that plays along (and LINKS BACK to the challenge) will earn a chance to win the random drawing for my prize package at the end of the month. This month’s prize pack is this limited edition Orange Striped treat bags (12 to a pack– 5 x 7 1/2 inches) – crepe not included. PS. If you can’t wait to win, you can find them in the Past Collections section on my website!
This Week’s Inspiration
Juliet used Amuse Studio’s Tag Bundle die set to cut the frame, transparency, and foam layers for this shaker. She said it was really fast and easy. Then she tucked in jewelry bits and glitter inside the shaker, and the background is stamped with amuse studio’s retired Elegant Elements set. You can find Juliet blogging at Ballpoint Bliss. I love that you can tuck leftover bits and pieces into shakers and not let things go to waste!
amuse studio supplies: Elegant Elements stamp set (retired), Tag Bundle die set
I have a Fuse Tool that I ordered from Amuse Studio and I love that I can do not only Pocket Pages scrapbooking with them, but also make really cute tags and cards! There are some great YouTube tutorials out there and my card is inspired by them.
A close up of my cute tag! I filled it with lots of Amuse Studio “goodies”.
