Maple Leaf Shaker Closure

August 30, 2018

Good Morning,

Today I am sharing a quick video of a Maple Leaf Shaker closure I made for a gate-closing mini album.  This is one time where taking longer to finish a project worked out in my favor. I like how the shaker adds a little-unexpected fun but still conveys the fall theme of this album.

The Maple Leaf Shaker was part of my most recent Tonic Studio’s craft kit.  You can read my “fangirl” post here My New Favorite Craft Kit – Tonic Studios 

All the product in the video came from the most recent craft kit except for the Mirror card and the Green sequins, those were in the previous month kit. The mirror card goes through the die cutter beautiful capturing every detail a die has to offer without damaging the finish. I did put it through the Sizzix a couple of times just because it is so thick, but it cuts clean. The mirror card is a new way for me to add a little shine to a project without having to break out the glitter.

Below is the quick video!

On a side note, I am still getting over my shyness with being on video and the mechanics of it all.  At least I finally figured out how to not have the tripod in the shot!

Thanks for stopping by and having a look!

    My mom has been into card making for the past couple of years. Seeing your video reminds me of some of the fabulous cards she has made….I like how the leaf enclosure ties in with your paper print….so festive!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comments and visit. I am in awe of card makers, their talent with stamps and ink is beyond me. This is why I stick to mini albums and scrapbooking.
