Shake It Up!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to another fun challenge that I know I found to be just that....a challenge. We're shaking it up this week with Shaker cards. You can find a tutorial here for these fun and fabulous cards. The best part - they're a lot easier to make than they look!

Lisa made two beauties and I had to include all of the photos she provided to highlight her gorgeous cake shaker card:

Dar created this lovely example of an awesome shaker card:

My shaker card:

Here's the best part: these were first attempts for all of us! Let's see your shakers...and be sure to let us know if you've made them before. I can say that I will definitely be making more now that I am less terrified of the technique.

Even better, we are being sponsored this week by Pizzazz Aplenty - the winner will receive $10 worth of embellishments! 

You have until 12:00pm(MT) on Sunday, May 6th to play along. Remember, a maximum of three entries per participant, please. Now go Shake It Up!

Recycle - Reuse - Renew

Hello Everyone and welcome back to another challenge 
here at The Sisterhood of Crafters!  
We are so glad you've come to join in the fun!

As you can tell by the title, today's challenge is all about

the things you have laying around the house 
or in your crafting area!

So, when you are creating your card or project, 
please be sure to use at least one 'recycled' item on it and let us know in your description what that item is.

Now, here are a few inspirational pieces from me and
my fabulously talented 'sistahs' to help get you started ...
I chose to RECYCLE an empty Cricut Cartridge Box  into a birthday gift for my friend Lona
who is a true 'tea tottler'

AND ... also found time to REUSE another item that has been sitting in my 'cave' for a couple of years.  It's the BOX that my DH's tri-fold wallet came in a couple of Christmas's ago.

has recycled this baby formula can into a beautiful canister.

AND, here it is with flowers in it.  FABULOUS idea Lisa!!

has also chosen to alter a tin.   What a fabulous gift giving container!  I can picture this filled with candies, dried fruit or a selection of so many other things!!

Now it's YOUR TURN!  I'm sure you can find something laying around that can be turned into an amazing work-of-art ... and we can't wait to see what you create!

You have until Sunday, April 22th, 8PM EST to play along.

Please remember only 3 entries. 
The TOP Sister and Sisterhood Top 3 winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 24th.
