Team blog hop

Hello crafty friends :)
    Welcome to our second team blog hop!! I am learning as we go, as we all learn, so feel free to comment on what you like, or what I can improve on!

 This month we are focusing on different technique  If you have arrived from Cheryl's blog   http://peytonspaperplace.blogspot.com/2013/04/welcome-to-our-blog-hop.html     then you are in the right place. If you have just arrived you can hop along in a circle. If you get lost along the way you can go to Brea's blog at http://thebrae-er.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-brae-er-technique-blog-hop.html   for a complete list.  For my technique I chose to showcase shaker boxes :)

These are supper fun, especially for cards. The first card uses the Tommy paper and the stamp set puns of praise c1535. The shape was cut using the cricut art philosophy. The transparency was adhered to the under side, same with the 3d foam tape then beads or anything for the shaker part.
Next is a layout I used the shaker box but with a picture behind the shaker part and sand from our trip as the particles inside. I used the surfs up paper pack and the workshop on the go stamp set, and left over supplies from the wotg :)
 left side, I used the Imagine book, recipie "role play" but added a few more pictures
 right side...
 and a close up of the shaker box. It looks so much cuter in real life.
Thats all for me....now hop along to Carol's blog http://craftycarol55.blogspot.ca/  Hopefully we will inspire you to try new techniques. If you have any other questions please comment, or email me.....I know my explanations are not exactly the best :)
