Hi Samantha Walker fans! Cathy here to share a layout with you featuring an adorable baby girl, Samantha Walker's Carta Bella Collection Summer Lovin' and a couple of Samantha's Silhouette files. I used the Sunny Word Logo Set #10879 and Scalloped Circle Border Set #9359 to create this bright and sunny layout. I did another shaker box layout for the Creative Team blog hop this month with a square shaker box, you can find that tutorial here. You can make a shaker out almost any shape, just by adding layers of card stock in the basic shape of your cut.
I cut the Sunny first out of the white background paper...don't remove the mat yet, and offset your title, switch the blade out for a Silhouette Sketch pen and send it through again. I backed my negative cut title with the super cute flamingo paper from the Summer Lovin' Collection.
Next, I cut my sun and border out of yellow card stock. Ungroup the sun and you will be able to remove the swirl. The sun without the swirl will be the back of your shaker box.
Again, don't remove your mat, but you can delete the bottom sun and border from your screen. Now, do an internal offset of the sun and then change the line to a dash. Switch your blade out again for a Silhouette Sketch pen (make sure to remove the original sun so that you just have the dotted line) and send it back through!
Next, cut a few circles out of yellow card stock. These build the depth for your shaker box so that you can add sequins and such.
After they are cut, glue them all together to for a stacked circle.
Somehow I deleted a photo step here, sorry! Just glue this ring to the solid sun, fill with sequins and add the swirly cut sun that you lined with clear plastic so that your sequins stay put.
I love this adorable photo of Kate at the beach with the Sunny title and shaker box....it highlights her personality so well. She brings sunshine wherever she goes.
