Queen & Company
Queen & Company is the queen of the shaker. They release new kits every month that make shaking so fun.
This latest Candy Land kit is just one yummy example. With it, I made a Princess Poppy birthday card by turning the candy die cut element into a 6 crown. And, of course, using that cotton for some Troll hair.
You can see instructions for creating the rest of my Trolls trio on the Queen & Company blog.
Jillibean Soup makes shaking SO easy. You simply fill a plastic container with any of their gorgeous bits (or your own bitty odds 'n' ends), peel back the sticker, and you have an interactive design to adore!
These projects come together so quickly, and even the kiddos can get in on the action. As clever Brooke, the host of Studio 5, mentions in my segment, this would be so much fun to do at a child's birthday party, setting up a shaker bar. I LOVE that idea and see some shaker action in my future. :)
Crop Because You Care
For the past few years, I've loved being a part of Crop Because You Care. This amazing charity is based right here in Utah and combines two fab things--helping and crafting! This Saturday, February 24, come out for a fun, full day of scrapbooking and games and prizes and classes. All money spent goes to an amazing cause. Learn more at cropbecauseyoucare.org.
If you're attending Crop Because You Care, make sure you bring a handmade thank-you card for the care givers at Primary Children's hospital. In exchange for your card (or cards, if you want to go to town), you will receive a raffle ticket and be entered to win an awesome prize I've put together, including some of the shaker items shown in my segment, a brand new Heidi Swapp planner, and many other crafting must-haves!
That's all for now. I hope you have fun shake, shake, shaking up your crafting, senoras and senors!
