#6 ‘Tis the Season for Shakin’


All Stampin’ Up!: Kidoodles and Four the Season stamp sets
Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White cardstock; Wild Wasabi DSP
Scallop Edge, 1 3/4” circle, 2 3/8” Scallop Circle punches; Shaker Frame
Cherry Cobbler Bakers’ Twine; Real Red, Wild Wasabi, More Mustard markers

As soon as I saw the shaker frames in the Holiday Minicatalog, I knew I needed to put some glitter/snow in one on a card. These frames are pretty nifty…they’re basically a ring of the same foam on Stampin’ Dimensionals, so there’s a little room for something to shake, but not so thick that you can’t mail them in a regular envelope. I’ve made some shaker designed I really liked in the past using round treat cups, but those are too thick for a regular envelope.

I stamped the little elf in Jet Black Staz-On, then colored with the markers. The colors look a little off in the photo, but they are the same as the papers in person. The "stitching" is just white gel pen, but I thought it added a great detail.

On a household note, I’ve decided I’m tired of cooking dinner every night. Unfortunately, our household budget does not allow for a chef (and my family wouldn’t let me get away with that, anyway!). Consequently, I’m planning a ginormous cooking day on Wednesday. I think I’m putting 12 different meals in the freezer. The flaw in my plan is that I forgot my boys are home for parent-teacher conferences all day Wednesday. So I may have a few extra hands slowing me down.

In any event, I’ll plan to blog about it with the timeline and recipes next week. The boys are also out of school Thursday and Friday, so it’s really like today is my Thursday with a long weekend coming up! Ack! WIsh me luck!
