Yay for shaker cards!!! 

Haha... I love shaker pockets and cards, do you? For this project I decided to create three shaker cards, using a Doodlebug cutfile

To start, I went through the new Cute&Crafty cutfiles and found this cute Jars&Sprinkles cutfile. Since the jars are filled with glitter and sequins in reality, I thought it would be a cool idea to use those for my shaker cards and fill them too.

To start, I cut all the pieces out, using different Doodlebug colored cardstock sheets. I cut out the container part twice; once like it was originally, the second one, I changed a bit, letting the machine cut out the inner part, so that I would have a window to back with acetate. 

I adhered all of the pieces together after adding some ink around the edges, then I added some highlights with a white jelly pen. 

I backed the "open" jar with a piece of acetate and then I but dimensional foam tape around all the edges. 
To fill the little jar, I used three different "Sugar Coating" glitters and sequins. Then I added the "filled" jar on top, to close the shaker pocket. 

For my card bases, I used three patterned papers from the collection, that had a white background. I cut them 8x8inches and folded them in the middle, to create an 8x4 card. I put some ink around the borders to create a frame and then adhered the little jars on top. 

As a sentiment, I used three banners included in the "Chit Chat" die cuts. To finish the cards, I added two buttons to the top of each jar.

I think the cards turned out super cute and they can be used for every occasion.

Who loves rainbow layouts? :)

I think we all do, right? The new Cute&Crafty collection is not only perfect to document your crafty memories, but also has the most perfect rainbow colors ever. One of the patterned papers especially caught my eye and I absolutely wanted to use it for my next layout...

This rainbow paper is just so pretty and I wanted to create a pretty layout with it. I always like these striped papers and mostly I use them in a horizontal direction. For this one, I wanted to change it and used it vertically. I cut off one of the colors (sadly...;)) and the borders to have a square page and adhered it to a white paper and one of the floral patterned papers to create a beautiful frame. 
Then I stitched around it.

To give my rainbow stripes more texture, I stitched a lot of tight zig-zag lines horizontally and vertically, with white thread. Then I took my gelatos and a baby wipe and added some color, to deepen some areas on the paper. It colored the thread as well and this gave the background even more interest.

I went through the Bits&Pieces die cuts and chose the flowers I wanted to use. I placed them on the layout until I was happy with the result. I matted my photo with different patterned papers and adhered it to the background using foam tape. 

Then I attached all of the flowers, after distressing the edges, using liquid glue for some and foam squares for others. 
For the title, I used one of the die cut words and alpha stickers in gold and pink. 

From the Odds&Ends die cut pieces, I used five embroidery thread spools in different colors and adhered them to the matching colored stripes. I embellished the flowers with jewels and enamel dots and also used some other little embellishments to finish the page. 
I added gold splatters at the end and that was it.

I love how colorful and bright the layout is and I love to work with this collection!! :)
