I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Heart Shaker Wand

This is a project I made for the Cricut Circle Blog weekly Challenge. The theme is Whatevah! And the requirements are that you use the same shape three times in the project and some spray ink.

I used Cake Basics for the base heart shape. I used my gypsy to make a silhouette layer, and then a solid layer for the back. I placed smaller hearts onto the heart base and silhouette layer and then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist in Candy Apple Red. I then cut a solid heart in acetate and adhered it to the back side of the silhouette layer.

I then cut a lovebug on page 31 from Simply Charmed. I put some googily eyes on him to make him a little sillier.

I attached foam adhesive strips to the perimeter of the base heart, and that gave my sides for the shaker box.

I filled the shaker with Hearts cut from Lacy Labels, and some small glittered heart stickers from my stash. I then inked the sides of the foam tape with red so they blended more with the heart.

I inked a skinny dowel rod with colorbox ink in Cyan, and then attached it to the back of my shaker with E6000 adhesive. I tied some ribbon in red and pink to the dowel right under the heart.
