Jillibean Soup and CardMaker Blog Hop

Are you in for a treat today!

FIRST... visit
so that you can get in on the
amazing giveaway they have to offer!

Be sure to visit
where all the fun begins.

Then check this out...

You should have made your way here from
Daniela's place on the web...

and once you've taken a look at
all the goodie goodness here at
you'll want to hop your way over to

And just in case you get a bit lost
along the way, the entire hop list can be
found at the end of this post.

Now on with the show...

Jillibean Soup has some of the
CA-YOOTEST images for
your Christmas season.
And this hop is featuring their
fun and festive

Jillibean Soup even has the
perfect shaker-ready cards with
the opening already trimmed out and
ready for the shaker cups!
How great is that?!

How cute is that ornament?!
I decided this card would be a flat card...
no opening.
It simply flips over and that's the card.
Different and fun for the recipient.

This card opens to showcase
the pretty paper which covers
the fun little shaker cup opening.

And just look at how appropriate
this paper is for the inside of my shaker...

Before you go,
check out this pretty paper tip...

I love all kinds of decorative paper!
And I enjoy using current and available papers
as well as whatever I can get my hands on.
Old hymnals, songbooks, comics,
newspaper... if it's cool and
suits my need at the time,

Have you heard of
Smash Books (by K&Co.)?
Of course you have!
How can you be a Paper Artist
and not seen these super fun journals?!
But just in case you've yet to see a
Smash Book, go look it up now!
They're so fun!!!
But they are also a bit out of date
for the paper crafts industry.
I recently scored the one seen here
for just $7.07!!! when they
usually cost between $15-20.
For that price I can use up all the
pretty paper inside for my
cards and scrapbooking ideas!
Genius, right?!
I found my delicious deal at
Blick's Art Supplies
so keep your bargain shopper eyes open!

Shaker Cards are SO super fun!
Keep hopping for more
super fun shaker card ideas!!!
Thanks for dropping by!
Have a creative day!

Shaker cards are so fun to make. I love the base for the snow globe you used. I have a bunch of beads left from some needlework kits that might be fun to use.
