Happy Birthday Shaker

What do you do with your newly purchased crafty items?  I put mine in a bin. There they await being added to my inventory spreadsheet, given a new home in a labeled plastic sleeve, and to be used to make cards.

My bin is getting crowded, so I am going to tackle it in earnest this month.

First up, Simon Says Stamp's Present Shaker. I put the shaker together, and used some lavender fun foam for the bow and the sides.  I colored the cross pieces to match the bow. The shaker bits are a combination of micro beads, white seed beads, and Martha Stewart's hearts and stars confetti glitter.

Thanks for stopping by!

PS. Here is a picture of the bin, I also have a couple of SSS card kits that need to be played with!


  1. such a cute card, Cat - neat idea to use fun foam for the bow!

  2. Cute card. I still don't NEED the colored craft foam. *ahem*

    And I have a similar bin. New stuff goes in there, and once used, gets put into a sleeve and put away. I haven't bought a lot lately, so I'm still pretty good.

  3. I love that you keep your NBUS separated until you've used it, Cat. I should do that, too, except I'd need a (ahem) giant bin and it would intimidate me! I absolutely love your present shaker card!! It's so fun!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Good for you to tackle your bin, Cat...very smart! I love this charming shaker card! Great idea to use your fun foam...such a great color, and I love that you chose micro beads for the aperture, too! Can't wait to see what else you create with your new stash :)

  5. Super cute card Cat! Love the big shaker as a present!!

  6. Can I come play at your house?! Fun products & wonderful shaker card, Cat!

  7. holy moly you are SO ORGANIZED! no wonder you can make so many awesome cards from ONE kit!


Your comments make my day. Thanks!
