Albums Made Easy Monday

Monday, November 4, 2013

Hello friends! It's hard to believe that Halloween came and went so fast this year. I hope you had fun with your littles. I had so much fun with my daughter but Friday I was totally beat from Trick or Treating. Those kids can go and go right?

So in today's post I am wrapping up using the Bewitched collection from We R Memory Keepers. next week I'll be featuring our Fall collection, Harvest.

 I thought it would be fun to make a shaker insert from one of the die cuts in the Bewitched Albums Made Easy collection.

 First choose what you want in your shaker

Next I cut a cellophane bag at the corner a little smaller than 3"x 4" so that the bottom and side were sealed. Then add the goodies inside that you want to use and use adhesive to seal the open side and top.

Then I used foam dots and place the shaker in the center and cover the top with the same die cut.

Here's the finished card. I added some washi tape and a fussy cut a snippet from another journal card with my Tiny attacher. (If you don't own this handy little tool from Tim Holtz, I highly suggest you use a coupon and purchase from Micahels, I love this tool!)

And here's how it looks in the Albums Made Easy page protector with some of the 4x6 and 3x4 inserts.

I hope you'll give today's technique a try and link up your posts if you share what you created on your personal blog or forum. I'd love to stop by and see them!

I love creating with the Albums Made Easy collection and hope you are gaining some useful tips and ideas from these weekly posts.

This is such a cool idea! I never would have thought to make a shaker for one of the pockets.

Love how this looks, but wasn't sure how to do it. Thanks for the instructions - definitely going to try it now.

I haven't tried making a shaker card, but you made it look very easy. I agree with you on the tiny attacher, it's a must have!

I'm doing the Halloween pages for my Grandchildren here in Australia and will add shakers to both their albums. I own lots of WeRMemory Keepers albums - love them and the divided pages. I don't have any of the Halloween goodies. Keep up the good work!

Love this, Shemaine! I have been wanting to make a glitter pocket for my PL albums, but I did not want to have to sew it. Great alternative!!!
