Baby Shaker Cards

Don’t you just love the Georgie paper pack?? I know its obvious use is for baby theme projects.  I have had fun using it for other uses but decided it was time to work on baby items.  I needed some baby cards since I know a few mamas to be. I though it would be fun to make shaker cards.

Everything ABC ~ Letter J

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter J.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their J element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from DIANA SANDERS’ Blog then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.

I have to admit the letter J is one of the more challenging letters.  I chose to complete a layout a JEEP, my son loves all vehicles but particularly one of our good friends Jeep.  I love the new paper packs and although the Magical paper would work fabulously for Disney, it was perfect for my JEEP layout.  Plus this layout works for my personal challenge and is layout number #18

The first card is a fun Father’s day card:

Father's Day Card ~ Day for Dad ~ Card 1 for May workshop ~ Bowler Hat ~ CatScrapbooking.comI love the new Day for Dad C1645 stamp set.  The mustache and bow tie are form Artistry cartridge and coordinate with the Day for Dad stamp set.  The bowler hat is from Artbooking and the glasses are from Artistry.

The other three are designed using the AWESOME  Happy Times paper pack.  Which is available this month only for Free with any $60 qualifying purchase.

March Card WorkshopThe Thanks is from Thousand Thanks C1625 and the flowers are from Flowers for Mom B1473.  I used the gold embossing power and the gold foil tape to accentuate the gold in the Happy Times.

Happy Times Card ~ Card 4 of May Workshop ~ Diamond embossed ~ CatScrapbookign.comThis card is inspired by one of the cards designed by Michelle Snyder as part of the card workshop she created.  The Happy Times is from the coordinating Happy Times CC1064 stamp set.
