Simple Stories Blog today! I love, love, love all of their products and I was thrilled when Layle contacted me and asked if they could do a Fan Focus Friday with my designs. All of the featured pieces were designed for The Scrapbooking Studio.
Just a super quick post to share another card created with watercolors and some Pebbles Front Porch and From Me to You collections. Also, combined with a fun pocket die from Taylored Expressions called Part of my Heart. Loving their stuff with my new Teresa Collins Ebosser! The Pebble's collections are gorgeous papers that just remind you of long Summer days. Hoping that Summer remembers to arrive in a few days. Last night it was 44 degrees here....brrr!
I cut two piece of Bazzill Dotted Swiss to layer and used watercolor to paint them with! I love the soft look!

Here is my Birthday themed layout created with the fun new
Carta Bella Summer Lovin' Collection designed by
Samantha Walker! I created a fun Shaker Box with Happy Birthday Phrase #35666 and a fun circle scalloped border set #9359.
Here's a close up of the shaker box...so fun and fairly easy to create!
After I cut the original file, with the Happy Birthday words and scalloped square piece, I started to create the layers needed for my shaker box. The Happy Birthday square measures 5.219, so I created a square the exact same size.
Then I did an internal offset of that square at 0.184!
Next, group your shape and duplicate it so that you have four squares! You will need to cut this twice, so you have a total of eight squares. These build the layers for your shaker box and give it the depth needed for the sequins.
Glue all 8 layers together.
Then glue those 8 layers to your scalloped square.
Fill with sequins and glue on a clear plastic piece and your Happy Birthday cut piece! There you have it, a Happy Birthday shaker box for the main embellishment on your page. The possibilities are really endless with the technique!

I have been super inspired by all the beautiful watercolor cards and layouts that I have seen lately on Two Peas in a Bucket and lots of designer's blog. So, when I was in Rapid, I stopped at Michael's and picked up a set of Reeve's Water Colours.
This was my first attempt with them...nothing fancy, but I am pretty pleased with the results!
A little twine, a fun SRM border sticker and some Pink Paislee
Hey Kid Die cuts...and a few Silhouette Cameo cuts!
