Hey friends! Brianna Lepper here today with a new layout where I took the Pinkfresh Floral Hoop cut file and turned it into a large shaker element by filling it with several colors of the Essentials Jewels.
To create the shaker, I cut the cut file out on white textured cardstock and adhered a piece of clear acetate to create my window. I then took foam strips and applied it around the perimeter of the hoop. I decided to use the Some Days collection on this layout, so I chose the Essentials Jewels in matching colors and poured them in. To seal the shaker, I used a piece of vellum and that was that!
For the base of my layout, I took the Slimline Skinny Plaid Stencil and blended on both the Lemon Whip and Marigold inks right on top of it. Then, I die cut my title using the Heather Lowercase Alpha Dies and one of the patterned papers from the collection. I also added onto it using the Blue Puffy Alphas and Mini Alphabet Stickers.
Next, I pulled out the Butterflies Stamp and heat embossed it in white. I then took the coordinating stencil and ink blended it with a few different ink cubes. Once it was dry, I die cut it out and layered it on top of my photo. I even added some glitter to its wings to give it a little extra sparkle.
This was such a fun page to create!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that I've inspired you in some way today! Have you tried making a shaker using a cut file? I hope that you give it a try! The Essentials Jewels and Crystals are perfect for shakers. See you in my next post!
