Shake Your Love

Hi everyone! Is anyone else singing the Debbie Gibson song in the title? hee hee



I wanted to join in the Sequin Shaker Blog Hop and share a project I made for i {heart} papers. I pretty much stink at shaker cards, but I figured it's all for fun, right? :)

Here's what I made:

Shaker Love

I've only made shakers that pop up, but I was inspired by how Julie Ebersole sewed around the border of her shaker card HERE. I sewed around three sides of the Crate paper and acetate. I filled the pocket with a mix of Theresa Collins, Lawn Fawn, and sequins from my stash as well as vellum "LOVE" die-cuts.

For the top, I layered more papers and used the negative portion of the LOVE from Avery Elle's Words Fill in the Blank Dies. For adhering the letters before I stitched, I used a glue pen--I like that it does't muck up my sewing machine needle. :) Here's a close-up:
