White Christmas Etcetera Shaker Tag Snapguide Tutorial
Hello, Friends! Happy Saturday! I’m up on the Frilly and Funkie Blog today with a Saturday Step x Step. For your convenience, I’m also posting the White Christmas Etcetera Shaker Tag Snapguide Tutorial here on my blog. This is the project I made for the Most Memorable Gift Challenge at Frilly and Funkie. You can find the original post HERE.
The tutorial focuses on the steps I used to create the shaker window element, prepare the tag base and add the basic layers. I hope you enjoy!

Frilly & Funkie Saturday Step x Step
Hello, Friends! I’m so glad you could join me here today. Have you l heard the exciting news that Graphic 45 is releasing the gorgeous French Country as a Deluxe Collector’s Edition? I’m so excited that I dug into my stash and created this French Country HeARTfelt Recipe Journal Tutorial for the Saturday Step x Step over on the Frilly and Funkie blog.
A Recipe for Success
I’m afraid that I have a brand new crafting addiction. Eileen Hull’s HeARTfelt Journal die from Sizzix is just so much fun to play with. Pairing it with these vibrant papers is truly a recipe for success!
There are so many different ways that you can use this journal. Here are a few that I came up with during the creative process.
Great gift for the new bride! Include some of your tried and true recipes and put in a basket with spices for a gorgeous shower gift.
How about the child who is moving out on his/her own? Add in all the favorite recipes from home.
Your own personal guide to fine dining! So many people take photos of their food plates. It would be fun to compile them here along with notes about the meal.
A heritage recipe book. Do you have scraps of recipes tucked here, there and everywhere? Why not create a special place of honor to preserve them?
That’s just a short list of ways that I think you could use this handy album. Do you have more? I’d love to hear about them!
Tips, Tricks and Techniques for Creating an Interactive Album
Interactive elements make me happy. It’s just so much fun to pull a tag out of a pocket, flip a page to find a little surprise, or fold paper in a unique way.
I’ve woven all kinds of fun surprises into this chunky little album.
There are tuck spots and pockets, and folios galore.
I’ve found all kinds of creative ways to use up little scraps of pretty paper. The easiest way to share all these ideas with you is via a YouTube video tour.
