Amazingly Easy and Pretty Shaker Card with the Love Jar Kit!

Meet the completely gorgeous Love Jar Kit from Queen and Company! There is an enormous amount of items packed into this great kit and you can make truly stunning cards by mixing the mason jar shaker with the stamp set and embellishments!



Here are a few of the projects I made with this kit:



I play up the blues and whites in the kit with this card using those colors both in the flowers and in the shaker embellishments.





This next card is similar in style but in a different color scheme, this time based on one of the patterned papers in the included paper pad. I love how the stamped sentiments fit perfectly on the labels you can cut with the dies in the kit. 





These little wooden shaker pieces look so cute in this kit!



A little different look with this card, keeping the lid closed and just focusing on the shaker items and a fun stamped heart-shaped label. 





Back to stamping again, but this time some "heart flowers" that match the colors in the striped papers from the paper pad. 





And lastly and non-shaker card highlighting just how cute the included embellishments are, even as standalone embellishments.



The die cut "thanks" word is a die from the Queen and Company Heart Throb Kit.

Queen and Company Holiday Tree Shaker Card Kit


Today I'm sharing all the cards I made with Queen and Company's new Holiday Tree Shaker Card Kit. This awesome kit is a great way to quickly make a bunch of Christmas shaker cards. You can make them all the same or put a different spin on each, as I did with my example cards.

The kits include all the cards, foam, acetate covers, tree die, shaker beads, embellishments, tags, and even the sentiment stickers for six cards. All you need to add is whatever color cardstock or patterned paper you want. I used all cardstock to keep this cards classic and clean looking, but patterned paper would also look great!


Here are the six cards I made with the kit. Again, all I added was a small amount of cardstock that I die cut with the included tree die. 

 This one stayed traditional with a classic green and red.


I love the mix of red and blue, so these two cards played up that color mix in opposite ways. 




Another couple of more traditional colored cards with red and silver/white and small green accents. The red tree is one of my favorite from this set of cards.


And last, my favorite card of the bunch, this peppermint inspired pink tree card! 


You can check out this kit over on the Queen and Company Web Site.

How To Make Cute Fruit Shaker Cards?

How To Make Cute Fruit Shaker Cards? Use the new Queen and Company Fruit Basket Shaker Kit! 

I am so excited this kit has finally been released! This kit has been in the works for quite some time, in fact, I created some cards almost exactly a year ago when we first started exploring the ideas that began to bring this kit to be!  
Each of the foam shapes in the kit are self-adhesive, making them easy to stick down on your project, then to fill with the adorable mini fruits. The matching acetate covers are also included which is an awesome time saver! 

It was a huge pleasure to design the papers for this kit! Fruit gives you so many fun options for designing! I think the apple/strawberry/flower paper is my personal favorite. 


The fruit shapes made coming up with matching sentiment stickers extra fun...I'm quite proud of how these turned out!



So far I've created a handful of cards with this kit, but I can't wait to create lots more! Enjoy a closer look at the six cards I made as soon as the kit was in my hands!

A Birthday Layout With Shaker Embellishments!

Here's a closer look at one of the projects I made from the Queen and Company Pretty Presents Kit! It's a layout with photos from Claire's first birthday. The day after her birthday all she wanted to do was to play with the balloons and wrappings from her presents instead of all the cool new toys she received! 



These are more of the papers I designed for this kit and some of the stamps I designed as well! The presents are tiny shaker boxes willed with fake sprinkles and miniature gift boys that shake around inside! 



























Thanks for stopping by today!

Super Hero Father's Day Shakers Cards

I Just finished up some Father's Day cards for the special Dad's in my life! I'm excited to give them away tomorrow! (And I think I'm completely addicted to shaker cards now. I rarely make a card that isn't a shaker anymore, shakers are just too much fun!) 







This card was fast and easy thanks to Queen and Company's Sunburst Foam Card Kit. You just expose the adhesive on the foam, stick it down to the front of our cad, then fill it with any of their awesome toppings. I filled this one with blue Bubbles, Diamonds, and Fimo stars. The top of the foam is also self adhesive and the kit includes an acetate cover that you just stick down on top. So simple! 

I added a die cut banner and star as well ass some foam letters to spell out "DAD." Additionally I embellished the front of the shaker with some red Lollies, red and blue Pearls, and white and blue Pinwheels. 


This "Super Dad" card was created by using the diamond cut from the Cricut Once Upon A Princess cartridge and layering two different sized diamonds together to create a frame. Then I cut out the shape 10 times and glued each layer together to get enough height for the shaker. Inside the shaker are more blue Bubbles and some lighter blue Diamonds. It's fun to watch them roll around in there as you move the card!




Again, there are some red Lollies, red and blue Pearls, red Twine, and Fimo Stars as embellishments outside the shaker.





Hopefully the super guys in my live will love them!


Thanks for visiting and Happy Father's Day!

Birthday Card Eye Candy

Another new kit that I contributed to with a patterned paper pad and stamp set launched recently! It's the Pretty Presents Kit by Queen and Company, which is just perfect for any gift giving occasion from birthday to wedding and everything in between! The cute little present dies can be used on their own or to make these incredibly cute shaker embellishments. The kit includes adorable fake sprinkles and tiny gift bows in different colors for a really cute and unique look inside your shakers!






I envisioned making lots of birthday cards when I designed the papers for the Pretty Presents Kit! This card is possibly my favorite card I've made with the kit so far. In addition to the cute shaker supplies from the kit I added some Opals and Lollies to up the "candy" look I was going for.





I'm excited to share more of my projects with this kit in the coming days!
