Hello all, thanks for stopping by...........I am so glad you're here!
Slowly but surely I am filling my new Cutting Cafe shop with lots of stuff that I love (and I think you will to). 
Today I added some Hemp #10 Cording. This is my favorite cording to add tags and more to ALL my projects. Mostly I only use the white and natural colors. The weight is perfect for tying a small bow as well.

I have used lots of new goodies from the shop on the XOXO SHAPED SHAKER card below.
I used some of the yummy confetti, natural hemp cording, white gelly pen and clear cardstock.

see video in making this card below:

Here's a screen shot of some of the new goodies in the shop:

  1. I made a shaker card after watching one of your videos- I gave it to a little girl (4 years old) who loves to "craft" and she thought it was the neatest thing ever!!! It wasn't nearly as beautiful or elaborate as yours but she loved it!

  2. Already a subscriber and am loving your files! :). I have made 1 shaker card before and gave it away already(it was a while ago. I want to start making more, especially after seeing your videos. Thanks for sharing and the chance to win!

  3. I love all the new goodies in your shop!
    No, I have not made a shaker card yet! I am a little afraid to do it. But, if I win those adorable heart yummies, I will make one for my Grand Daughter. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!
    Thanks again!

  4. This is awesome.. I want to learn how to make them

  5. Wow, that's a lot of goodies you're adding to your shop! I've got to go take a letter look! I have made shaker cards. I tried cutting my own shaker contents for one and that was not a good idea as the pieces still had the tackiness from my Silhouette mat, so they all stuck to each other! I'd love to get yours, ready made. I'm in a blog hop in April all about shakers. I might just incorporate them in one of those projects. Like you, I really enjoy using twine and hemp these days. I have loads of ribbon, but the hemp is just so much easier to work with and so delicate the sweet little dots you include in many of your projects! Kim

  6. your card is just beautiful! makes me wish (once again!!!) for an electronic cutter so I wouldn't have to cut all of those inside pieces by hand...

    I enjoy making shaker cards, but don't do them as often as I should. maybe I'll be inspired to do one this weekend!

    thanks for the chance to win some of these lovely new products!
    enjoy your day! :)

  7. LOOOOOVVE the shaker cards!! And yours is gorgeous... I have not watched the video yet but it is on my list for the weekend... and love all the new stuff you've added... you're making very hard for me to stick to my budget... HA! budget.... lol... I made myself laugh... :)

  8. Hello, No I have never made a shaker card before, but it is on my bucket list for my next round of cards for my grandkids. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway, they are always fun.

  18. Oh My ~ I've never made a shaker card before either. I love your pretty, romantic XOXO shaker card.
    This is the year I'm going to make one, as they sure look like fun!

  19. Yes, I have made shaker cards before, here is one that I made for my sister last month. Thank you for your inspiration!

  20. I love your sjop and your blog. I get so much inspiration from here. I have never made a shaker card before. I have wanted to try tho. I think that they are so fun. The hemp is really cool too. Thank you for all you do for us crafters.

  21. Great give-away, Regina! I love shaker cards! Your files are the best ever for making them!

  22. Thanks for entering me for the giveaway. I have always wanted to make a shaker card but never have. I have seen many tutorials but yours is the only one that made sense on the directions. Now I'm not so timid to try making my own. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks again,

  23. Hope your new shop is doing well! Yes, I make and design shaker cards from printables. The windows are a good way to recycle clear plastic packaging. I try to use whatever small beads, sequins, etc I have in my stash left from other projects. They take a bit more time than regular cards, but aren't hard once you've made your first one. Definitely have that fun, wow, factor when giving them.
