Elegance in a Double Shaker

This elegant shaker card has a unique double window cut with  two separate shaker boxes.  It’s another great example of thinking outside the shaker box!  I only wish I knew who made this card so that I could give credit where credit is due.  Was it you?  Please let me know!!


My Heart Is Yours

Oh boy, I better get busy!  Valentine’s Day is only 24 days away and I still have GOBS of “love”ly designs I want to share before then!  Here are a couple more cards by Julian Buttenshaw.  Be sure to click on the photos to enlarge the view so you can see the micro beads!  Ü

Crazy Love Shaker

Here’s a crazy shaker card that I found in my stash tonight!  I have no idea who made it, but obviously they love to use their scissors!! 

This care is a great example of how unlimited the possibilities really are when making shakers using the free Pennywise Arts templates!  Think outside the box (or the square in this case) and cut the window to be any unique shape you desire.


If you are the artist of this card, please be sure to contact me so I can give you due credit!!

Postscript:  Thanks so much to Beki Ward for solving our mystery!  She is the artist and the stamps in question are Club Scrap!

Love Ya!

Here’s another super simple little project that was created by Marilynn Campise, a previous designer for Pennywise Arts.

Her challenge was to use the little clippy hook things that we found a whole bag of while cleaning the shop one day and she did!   The clip is added to the booklet as an embellishment all it’s own and ribbons were tied to the loop to finish it off.

True Love

I’ve been looking at this neat vintage collage card by Julian Buttenshaw for a couple of weeks.  I love the rich brown tones and the ghostly image transfer on wispy thin mulberry paper.  It’s such a beautiful piece of art.DT - Julian B

The colors coordinate perfectly with my home and I am considering how I might add it to my decor!
