Stormy days shaker Card with CTMH

Hi, I am here with a totally adorable technique to share.  I am sure most of you out there have heard of shaker cards.... I had but the whole idea seemed completely daunting. But due to having some time on my hands and a requirement for a shaker card, I decided now was as good of time as any to give this technique a crack.
You will need.....
A stampset, I used Everyday Life Rainy Day by CTMH ( For more information on CLOSE TO MY HEART contact HEATHER)

White cardstock and patterned paper, I used The Adventure Assortment from CTMH

A few basic supplies including sequins foam tape, transparency and a die ...

Unfortunately I didn't take any photos of the making process as I was trying to work my through and it was my first attempt.  But I do have a photo of the finished product...

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock which I cut to fit the back of the diecut.  I then sponged on some different coloured blue inks.  I tipped a few sequins in the window and sealed shut with the foam tape.
I stamped 2 of the images from the rainy day set using black ink and coloured them using markers then I adhered to the outside of the shaker box.  I added some CTMH washi tape along the bottom of the card and stuck on a few extra sequins.

CAS Card with Close To My Heart

Time is flying towards Christmas, only one week away for those of you that need reminding ;) With lots of running around and things to do at this time of the year a CAS card is definitely the call of the day.

The persfect set for CAS cards is My Acrylix Rainy Day Everyday Life.  The cute images and adorable sentiments are perfect.

I layered my cardstocks and added the pieces of everyday adventures patterned paper in the corner.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink and outlined with a fine black marker.  I then stamped my images in the corner and coloured with markers and outlined the white piece of card with a fine black pen.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the followers of Paper Crafter Anonymous a very merry Christmas as I will not be posting next Wednesday as it is Christmas day :) 

Happy Scrapping

Cute Pressie Tags with Close To My Heart

I love this time of year :)  Lots of happy smiling faces, delicious food and merriment.  Another thing I am loving this year is the My Acrylix Home for the holidays stamp set.   SOOOOOOO CUTE!   I bought a pressie for a good friend and decided to make the wrapping a bit more personal.  

I stamped the "DO NO OPEN" stamp on red cardstock with gold ink and the sweet little lolly in red on white card.  I also sponged the edges of the white card for depth.  

I tied the whole lot together with gold thread and there you have have it, I am calling it done.  

Thanks loads for dropping by and happy scrapping.

Scrapbooking With Close To My Heart - The Tree 2014

I was sent the most awesome products to use from Heather for this month and I loved making this layout of our Christmas tree for this year.  This year has been really special as it is the first year that all the children have been big enough to help trim the tree :)

I used white cardstock for my background teamed with a couple of papers from the Adventure collection and My Reflections "Snow Haven" paper. 

I stamped a repeating pattern from "flight of the arrows" my acrylix set onto vellum with gold ink and dryed with my heatgun to make sure it didn't smear.  I also stamped the bauble from the stamp of the month set "Home for the holidays" on a a piece of the snow haven paper and embossed it in white. 

I also added some gold sequins just for a little interest and to break of the flatness of the layout.

Thanks loads for joining me today, happy scrapping.
