SOS: I like to move it, move it!

Here we are... December!

This week at Shopping Our Stash the challenge is I like to move it, move it... we are encouraging craft hoarders to reduce their stash with us and create a card (or project) with a moving element, such as a shaker, a wobbler, or googly eyes... you get the idea!

The is the second shaker I've ever made...

Supplies and notes:
  • Front panel of shaker is Prima acetate from 2008, inked with Distress alcohol ink in Pink Sherbert and Meadow
  • 3M foam tape used to adhere the Prima panel to white watercolor paper, with stash sequins (at least three years old) inside.
  • Black frame measured and cut from basic cardstock; corners snipped with a basic hole punch.  Frame then rubbed with DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Gold Rush.
  • K & Company green trim (five years old) added to the inner edges of the shaker frame, adhered with spray adhesive.  I didn't notice they were crooked until I posted the pictures!  Ewww... see the top left corner of the shaker frame?  Yucky...
  • K & Company adhesive bling from years ago added to the top of the shaker.
  • Tim's paper dolls
  • Roses from my stash
  • Tim's Chit-Chat stickers
  • Card base stamped with a Prima crackle stamp inked with Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Ranger EP in Princess Gold.
  • The corners of the card base were also snipped with a regular hole punch.
Just to get you on the mood:

Haha!  Now go on over to Shopping Our Stash for some awesome ideas... then join in the fun!


  1. Gorgeous shaker, love the detail on it, the stamping in black to match the image inside the shaker was ingenious. Super images and sentiment too.

  2. I can't spot anything crooked at all, so it must be very subtle and blends in with the whole beautiful design:)

  3. Ohhhh la la la!
    This is ALL kinds of awesome!!

  4. I feel I may be craft-stash impaired as I have nothing in my possession that moves... I better go shopping! Lovely creation here, I'm partial to anything dotty, and they've created a bit of visual movement all on their own.
