JAI 221: Just Add A Shaker


We've rolled around the calendar again, back to Friday and another Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week Paula had challenged us to add a shaker to our project.  I've never made a shaker card before, and even after this challenge, I still haven't!  I decided to add a shaker segment to a Project Life page instead!

My daughter Ada started going to dance lessons about 2 years ago.  It's always been in the back of my mind to make her a dance album, and with the introduction of PL, now is the perfect time! I've used the 6x8 pocket page we got as a Make and Take at Convention, and added the shaker section to the bottom half of one of the 3x4 sections.  I then cut a 3x4 card down to 3x3 to fit in the top of the pocket.

All I did was add a heap of sequins that I pulled off the Sequin Trim, pop them into the pocket and then sew them in using my sewing machine.  Easy!  I love this size page for my daughter's dance album as it's the same size as the programs I have kept from her concerts and competitions.  It will be super easy to slip them into a full sized page to keep all her dance things together.  I can't wait to get my hands on more pages and the album so I can really get going with it.  I can see lots more sequin shaker sections coming up on future pages!

There are a lot of fabulous cards made by the Design Team this week.  Why don't you pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog to check them out and get some inspiration for the challenge?

Bye for now,



  1. Little girls and golden sequins are a combo hard to beat Tina! A shaker PL pocket was a great idea! xxx

  2. Tina this is a fab idea! I love the extra sparkle that the sequins give your page.
