Welcome to this week's inspiration from The Cutting Cafe! It's an Anything Goes week and I've decided to create some shaker tag/ornaments! I'm also playing along with Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags. I was inspired by the colors of Daniela Dobson's tag from Day 11 and the shaker and the gold, white and shaker element from Julie Warner's tag from Day 12.
So! On to what I've created for you today:
I LOVE the shaker files from The Cutting Cafe! You may remember I used them a while ago to make a snowflake canvas and card and also an acorn canvas. For the tag/ornaments I made today I used the Christmas Shaker Card set. I imported the SVG version of the files and changed the size according to the instructions that came with them. Then I ungrouped them and kept only what I needed (the files come with pieces for both a card and an ornament). Then I regrouped the images I kept and made them smaller as a group so that all of the pieces fit together properly and they were small enough to tie to a package or gift bag...
This, of course, is the snowglobe shaker. I just love blue, white and gold together... and so does Sassy Owl... she thinks it makes her look fabulous....
I'd have to agree.... and I love the Clear Cardstock from The Cutting Cafe Shop... it's perfect for shakers and a lot of other stuff too!
I also love the movement in a shaker ... and the cute little shakey sound they make.
For the mitten, I knew I'd want to use my sweater embossing folder on it... and I filled it with all kinds of cute little buttons, some CDD Christmas sequins, and some little seed beads.. and those adorable little acrylic images I picked up at Hobby Lobby last year.
And it was fun to wrap the eyelash yarn around the wrist to create my fuzzy cuff on my mitten.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you come back soon! And be sure to check out the post at the Cutting Cafe Blog on the 21st to check out all of the Design Team makes! I can't wait to see which files they all decided to use this time around!
I know I've been here a lot this week and next week will be a little slower because one of my boys is coming to visit so I won't have a lot of crafty time.... but hopefully I'll see you Monday for Atlantic Hearts! And don't worry... Owl Be Back!
