Happy World Cardmaking Day!

 Hi friends! 

Happy October!

I've been trying to post this card since 11 am, LOL!

I knew today would be a fun day to create a card and even got an early start, in between cleaning and laundry and my second POT of coffee!

But, my life never goes according to the day's plans and there's ALWAYS something waiting 'round the bend to take me away from crafting :)


Today's card is using Avery Elle's Boo to You stamp set, perfect for creating this Halloween shaker card.

I stamped/colored and ran through my Brother Scan N Cut these images so they would be cut out. The pumpkin wouldn't cut the inner lines so I had to adlib those and use a circle die, then my scissors to fussy cut.

Whatever works, amiright?!

I filled the shaker with Paper Rose Studios shaker elements and I did a video haul on these awhile back on my YouTube channel - they are adorable and fit inside the shaker so beautifully.

This video making this card will up shortly - be sure to check back :)

I used Bearly Arts glue to hold most of this card together and fill in the area with the acetate, as well as glue the cardstocks together. Love it!

I wish you all things joyous today as you create!

I am honored to know you all from across the globe and share this passion of papercrafting with you ~ friends, cardmakers, papercrafters, youtubers and more!  You are all really like extensions of family <3

Thanks for stopping by!
