It's Shaker time over at A2Z Scrapbooking!

Can you believe it's September already?!
We're shaking things up over at

Here's my shaker...

I first took Hero Arts Layering paper and die cut out a square
for my shaker window.
I used that sweet pig image from Hero Arts Playful Animals (stamped out twice)
so I could cut out it's head and pop up on foam tape to create a little
head tilt to talk on the phone (from Hero Arts Friends with Lia).
The phone was covered in glossy accents for an old
fashioned look and I hand drew in the coils to connect the phone.
The sentiment was inked up in Hero Arts Ombre Ink Gray to Black on the inside of the card.
I lined the back side of the card front with acetate, filled with Doodlebug Sequins, placed
another layer of acetate and sealed with washi tape.
Then to cover up I added another panel with a die cut square to cover up the washi taped edges.

Here's a closeup...

Come play along with us over at
