It’s shakey shaker window time again…

I just got a new batch of shaker windows in..  new shapes and sizes.  This time I have 3″ Square, 2.5″ round and some 2×3′ rectangles to add to the 3″ circles I already have.  I haven’t had a chance to bust them open and make any projects yet…. but expect to see some later this month. These are all 1/4 ” high as usual, so lots of room if you want to try out the fun shaker card games I make.

In the meantime…. leave a comment below telling me what new craft goodies you just got, or what you would make with these….and I’ll pick a random person and send you a mixed pack to play with.  And since I am feeling very nice and relaxed after my much needed mini-vacation… I won’t even restrict  it to US only entries this time.

Unity Stamps Shaker Game Card

It’s been a while since I made one of these… and I have a few new variations in mind, I just haven’t had time to do them yet. This is one I made for the Unity Stamps Facebook Group challenge which is currently ‘watercolors’. Unity (Show and Tell) using Warm inside

The circular frame is  made using a Gina Marie Designs Die “Mini Heart Lace die set”
These are the 3 inch circular windows, 1/4 inch deep  and the balls are approx 5 mm.  No foam padding needed as they are already deep enough, just fill and glue.. or glue and fill.. depending on what kind of shaker you are making.

Watercoloring was done on  Canson Mix Media 9×12  with Gansai Tambi watercolors & a BrushH2o

It’s been a crazy month…. update news!

updatesSome of you already know from the Crafting Circle Facebook Page that October was a CraZEEEEE month here  and may have noticed the slow down in posting recently… but thankfully most of that is  taken care of now and aside from the unpacking reorganizing and some maintenance work that needs to be done this month….. I’m back on track and raring to go again.  November will be a crazy month for great deals just in time for I’ll be updating banners and affiliate shopping pages etc. this month and hopefully we’ll find some great deals.

The new Blitsy store page just went up..  I am so excited about this years Blitsy Pyjama Party.  If you haven’t  ever attended one.. you really should try and join’s a lot of fun, lots of great crafters, craft challenges and product info allll night long well as some great Black Friday deals..and of course..THOSE SCISSORS… just one of the great things you can win at the PJ Party and possibly in your order.

I’ll be updating a lot of the affiliate banners, adding in some fab  new vendors too… some are affiliates..some will just be  vendors I really love to shop  at myself.  Be sure to check back throughout the month, or subscribe to the blog for email updates on  new posts etc.

I am cutting back on my DT  projects a bit and will be concentrating more on other avenues … so don’t worry ..there will still be lots of projects.. but more variety and  hopefully some fun new things to try.

I’ll be working on some fun Christmas gift and Decor projects with the lil guy in the next month so  I hope you enjoy those too.  He is 4 and a half now so we are starting to experiment more with new ideas….and of course Art Abandonment projects… we’ll be doing more of those in 2017 too.

For anyone who is interested.. maybe even some fun video spots in the  future..  We don’t do expect them to be lighthearted and fun….and probably MESSY !! lol

Oh.. and for anyone who is interested .. the shaker card windows / pouches probably won’t be available again till after Christmas.  There is one left on Ebay and I probably won’t be restocking these again on Ebay till the new year. …sooo if you wanted a pack between now and January you can PM me on Facebook and see if I have any available.  I’ve been planning to add some new shapes and sizes in  but  just haven’t had time.. so hopefully those will also be available in the New Year.

New Blog Post Addon -Slow Release Projects

I’m trying something new for this post, it’s a new addon I created for slow release posts. This post will gradually appear over a period of 24 hours and should display in it’s entirety by tomorrow night.  I am assured there are no side effects to this slow release technology.. so it will be interesting to see how effective it is.

This is my Freebie Friday Project for Scrapper’s Delights.  So grab your Freebie Friday Image and come join in on the Scrapper’s Delights Challenges. There are two challenges.. twice the fun and twice the chance to win!!! sd_ff_pixie_wmd

“Pixie Pan” is colored with Chameleon Pens and is the background for my shaker window. the shaker window is filled with tiny black and white dots. Musical Brads, flowers, pearl studs, an ivy cut file and some pink rhinestones surround a matching circular frame and the piece is mounted on a black foam padded base atop a hand striped pink base card.







3 inch circle shaker card windows for the iostamping globe

I had a lady inquiring about the shaker card windows I have, she has a die by iostamping that she could no longer buy windows for… well as it turns out, mine fit this die… so if you have a iostamping globe  die lying around unused.. now you can use them again 🙂
Just thought I would share the information; since it is not a die I own, so it’s not one listed onThe shaker card page as compatible.  Of course if you don’t already own it, you can pick that up too if it’s something you need in your collection.

This is a card I have had on my todo list for a good 4 months or more.. and I finally got to do it in the wee hours of this am. I was chatting with one of the girls online about 5 am about what sentiments I wanted to use….when it occurred to me, this would be a fun giveaway.  So yet again… here is a chance to grab a 10 pack of shaker card windows and balls and have a laugh at the same time.

I love these kind of fill in the blank cards, so much fun to personalize them to the recipient.

Mother’s Day Shaker Game Card

The Blog Challenge  at Cute As A Button CAAB this month is “Mother’s Day”  and I chose to  make a fun Shaker Game Card which is suitable for any occasion when you need to let your mom know how much you love her and wanted to say “Thank You”.

I kept it super simple  to maintain the focal point and message conveyed.  I love the Black, white and red combo… it’s very clean and classic and suitable for both sexes and all ages. The ornate scroll backing to the shaker is very  gender neutral too so you could use this idea with a  variety of image themes, for any occasion. I had a bunch of precuts for the shaker card windows, so that made this a very quick and simple card to  make.


Card Base Black Recollections 5×7 card set from Michaels
Window panel cut from Recollections Burgundy  card
Scroll overlay –  Cut file I believe came from Bird’s Cards on 110lb Index Card Stock
Circular frame – Black Recollections Card Stock
Shaker Window 3 inch diameter, 1/4 inch high.
Image – CAAB  “I love you Mommy” colored with Chameleon pens
Game holes  2 inch throat 1/4 inch paper punch by MgGill
Balls – 6mm plastic  balls
Heart  Scrap bucket  red card punched with mini punch
Sentiment cut on 110lb card .. unknown die from Joann clearance sale
