Firstly I would like to apologise to anyone that follows my blog for my recent silence. I have been extremely busy with work, family, crafts and Christmas.
Over the pass few weekends I have made Christmas Cards for family and God Children. To be honest since last year I have seen a slight improvement in my crafting although I will be honest and say I am still nowhere near as good as alot of crafters out there but I am pleased with the cards I have made.
This will more than likely be my last blog post of 2017 as for the next few weekends I am busy so I will bid you all a Merry Christmas & All the best wishes for 2018. Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and family time. Stay safe and see you next year
Hope you like the cards 🙂
Just an quick update on the Shaker Cards I made yesterday… Firstly I am still pleased with how they finished and it actually worked BUT was lacking something … yes COLOUR ! So I amended the Mother’s Day Card and redid God Daughter’s card.
Looking back in hindsight I was not overly happy with result as I said am I pleased I actually made some after putting it off for a while.
So here my 2nd attempts… To be honest still deciding about my God Daughter’s card
What do you all think ?
Well today I finally took the plunge and had a go at making Shaker Cards. Now I will admit they are not high standard by any means but I am pleased I actually did it !
As I did not have any acetate sheets or gems, I improvised. I laminated a sheet and used table confetti and pretty pleased with the results.
There are so many tutorials and video’s to look at and watch, I found myself getting very confused with it all. Best one’s I have to say are :- HERE and THIS ONE
I will admit when I got all my required craft stash sorted I sat there for 10 minutes with a blank mind as totally forgot what the video’s did so made it up as I went along and then realised I had remembered !
Here are my first 3 attempts… I know they need colour and put onto backing card but this was all trial and error to see if theory would work 🙂
Am sorry for not listing supplies this is purely because I forgot to write them down
