Our first shaker card

I want to go back to cardmaking, but not that much, cause all my craft corner looks like a mess and since it’s upstairs and in the room with closed doors, I forget about it! Every time I walk upstairs (rear, cause we don’t live there) I’m surprised of what’s going on in my craft corner!


Janis brought me sequins (pick out our mailbox)Β  and Nelle saw them, so we had to go upstairs and make something! Never made shaker card before but I had a little crafter with high expectations – Nelle!


So, we made our first shaker card. This is greeting card to Sāras (Nelles friend in kindergarten) birthday party! Now I have double-mess at my craft corner, that is upstairs and in the room with closed doors… Help! πŸ™‚

  1. I’ve never heard of a ‘shaker card’ before but I get the idea. Well done Nelle – cards hand made mean so much more than one ready-made from the shop. I have one carefully saved from Christmas though all others are now ‘gone’. Messy craft corner? I wouldn’t dare show you mine – good you can shut the door on it :-), as can I.

    1. πŸ™‚ Nelle showed it to the Sara already, but didn’t gave it to her – cause her birthday are after a week in Thursday :D. I was surprised! I told Nelle, that she can gave this card and then we will make another one πŸ™‚ “But I made this one as birthday card, and Sara can wait, she told me so!” πŸ™‚

            1. Me too! I let her shout and greet everyone! I now we have to talk about safety when she start to go to school… not to talk to the strangers etc (do you have such “safety” guides!?)

    1. Thank you! Nelles design! But this is also my first shaker card to, cause I really helped here with sequins. But I guess I need to solve few “problems” to get in my craft corner!

    1. Thank you, Carolyn! This mess is from Santas workshop! When I was a little elf and wrapped 27 presents! Still, haven’t clean that! Thank God I took away wrapping paper and ribbon, Nelle was very suspicious about snowflakes – They look like ones on Linna’s present from Santa! But I showed here die cut and told, that Santa is having the same, cause these are easy to get at winter time πŸ™‚

  2. So cute and I love shakers! Waffle Flower bear is adorable! Crafting with your girl is very special. That reminds me of times when I crafted with Nick when he was little. Now we play video games, watch movies, and go out to dinner. Miss those times. Messy craft space is a problem, my dining room table has been overtaken by crafty mess for two years. I finally decided to organize my space, bought a desk, and now attempt to clean after each project. Now organizing all my supplies little by little due to the cost of containers and other organization supplies. It looks much better already.

    1. So sweet & special comment! Thank you for sharing! I would love to have real craft corner, mine is as yours – desk and a bit where to put supplies. I guess this year I will try – cleaning that mess, organize a bit and CLEAN AFTER EVERY PROJECT! All my last projects was in hurry, hence the mess!
