SUO Challenges 108

Hmm… so lets see, I had two blog tours in a row so I did’t get to tell you about Sunday! LOL! Sunday was a fun day! I met Michael at the Scrapbook store at noon. Dyan Reaveley was there teaching a class. She is a lovely English lady that has a line of stamps, stencils, ink, etc. called Dylusions with Ranger. Michael introduced me to her and we chatted for a bit. You can see Dyan’s blog HERE. After that we went to lunch in Farmingdale and there just happened to be a street fair so we took a peek that too. From there we stopped at Michaels and then by Kim and Brian’s for a bit. Later on I stopped by Andrew’s to drop off some vitamins, he’s not feeling well and has a busy week ahead of him so we are hoping to keep the cold at bay! As if being sick wasn’t enough he dropped his iPhone in water and came by to get some rice to put it in. Fingers crossed that all is well when he turns it on this morning. Everything always happens at once doesn’t it?! So all in all I had a great weekend and got to see lots of peeps which always makes me happy!!

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our The Treats the Thing challenge. I decided that I needed to make another shaker something so this is what I came up with. I took one of the Tiny Treat Boxes and covered the four sides with some All is Calm Designer Series Paper. I decided that the top was a good place for my shaker and I had just gotten some really snowy looking glitter (I know, I don’t really like glitter, but I’ll make an exception every once in a while!) so it needed to be a wintry scene on a very small scale! I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Window Sheet and some Lost Lagoon. One of the Shaker Frames is used to hold my glitter. The images are from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the trees in Pear Pizzaz and my Santa and reindeer are markered with Real Red and Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Markers. The Circles Collection Framelits cut out the images and complete the shaker frame. My tag is a piece of Lost Lagoon that is punched out with the Note Tag Punch. I heat embossed the sentiments in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder from the Cheerful Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and a piece of White Baker’s Twine tucked under the shaker holds it in place. A fun little shaker box to put a sweet little gift in! That’s my project for the SUO Challenges The Treats the Thing challenge. Let’s see what fun projects you can come up with, head on over to the blog for some more inspiration and upload yours to the gallery! I hope you enjoyed my little shaker box and I thank you for coming by for my little recap. Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

  1. How fun! At first I thought it was a K-cup nestled on top….but I love the shaker! Great job with the SUO Challenge!

  2. Good morning Justin- thanks for catching us up on your weekend. My you get a lot done in one day!
    Love this gift box project. I have not used the shaker frames yet and am trying to figure them out. So basically you pick what size frame you want for the base and cut out a same sized window sheet to form a seal? The lost lagoon circle serves as a frame over the entire window sheet?
    Thanks Justin- lovely project.

    1. Hello Marty!
      Thanks for coming by to catch up! I try to get as much done as I can! Thanks so much! Yes, that’s exactly how you do them!! Give it a try, they are really fin once you get the hang of them! 🙂

  3. Hi Justin, great cards again and love the shaker box. I have not tried to make a shaker card yet as they look quite difficult but as usual you inspire me to try new things! Wow, what a busy day you had on Sunday. Do you ever feel like you go to work for a rest? LOL. Probably not as your weeks are busy too!
    I have seen some of Dyan’s Dylusion products which look great and will now check out her blog, thanks. I hope Andrew feels better soon, you are a great friend to have. Also hope his iPhone is okay and rice has worked.
    Take care,
    Michelle xo
    I forgot to say your nephew Daniel is adorable, such a lovely photo of you both you posted last week.

    1. Hello Michelle!
      Thanks very much! I hope you do give the shaker card a try! They really are fun! I am very busy, but I like it like that! Believe it or not I am busier at work!!
      Dyan was great! She has some really cool stuff! Andrew is feeling the same. His iPhone is working though so that a great thing!
      Daniel is a real cutie! Love him!
      You take card too!


  4. Very clever Justin. A ‘shaker’ isn’t limited to just the front of a card. I like it very much!

    1. Thanks so much Linda! I too love shaker cards! It adds so much! Andrew is still not well but I have loaded him up with vitamins so hopefully that will help! 🙂

  5. So, so cute, Justin! I love your shaker designs. Have a good week….get Andrew healthy and don’t get sick yourself!
