Pair of Valentine's Shaker Cards Plus Bonus CAS Cards

I love shakers cards, so I made a pair with a simple design that really makes the shaker part of the card shine!  Then with the leftover die and scraps of paper I made another pair of cards that so super elegant and a perfect card for the season of love!  Lets start with the shaker cards first.

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


Here is a video on how I made these shaker cards.

I stuck everything down with the Xyron Creative Station Lite.  It can make just about anything stick to anything else.  For the shaker cards I ran the the background papers, die cuts, Dura-lar film, and even the thick mat board I used to raise up the film to make room fro the shaker bits.  Even with the elements have a bit of thickness to them they ran through the machine like a charm and everything is super secure!


This is the reason I love the Xyron Creative Station Lite!  It is super versatile.  I can pull out one machine and it does it all and works with so many different materials.  



I had some elements left over from making the shaker cards, and while I had everything out why not?!?!  Here is the best part, I did not need to pull out another adhesive for the sequins, I just ran them through the Xyron Creative Station Lite and they stick like a charm!


Another little plus for the creative station, you can also get other inserts to make magnets and laminate!!

Are you making Valentine's Day cards?

Family Flip Flap Mini Scrapbook Album

I love to give a little mini album to the grandparents each year.  This year is a little flip flap album that is clean and simple, but full of little surprise flaps that hide little fun pages.  This book is super easy to put together, all you need is 4 sheets of cardstock!  Check it out below.

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


I first started by taking 4 sheets of cardstock and and Xyron Tape Runner to creating the base of the flip flap books.  These are so easy to make, and kind of addicting!  Check out the video below to see how. 


I then used the Wild Whisper Forever and Always paper collection for all the insert and flaps in the book.  They were the perfect fit of colors of masculine and feminine so that each page work for all the members in my family.  Check out how I embellished each page n the video below.


To stick all the chipboard, papers, and pictures into the book I used the Xyron Tape Runner or the Xyron 3" Sticker maker to make these books to fast and easy to make!  Check out some the pages below.  Check out the video above for all the page details.


Do you make little albums to give as gifts?
