Memory Box Challenge #8- Shake it up Baby! (Shaker Cards)

Challenge icons

It  is time to announce another Memory Box Challenge.  We  hope you will play along with the theme through the end of the month.  You will even  have the chance to win prizes!  Thank you so much to everyone who participated in last month's challenge.  I think people always enjoy seeing samples for holiday cards.

The winner of our blog badge for last month's "Season's Greetings " challenge is Donna from the Room in a Cupboard blog. She made decorative Christmas Crackers:



The lucky winner of the draw for the monthly prize is  Gail Scott from the I Like Paper blog.   Congratulations!

Please contact me at stampjournal@gmail.com to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize.  In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You can enter as many times as you like, and you are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.


I don't know about you, but I sure do love seeing the abundance of shaker cards that seem to be everywhere these days.  I have shaker cards for just about every occasion using just about every material imaginable to fill the "shaker" part of the card.   We would love to see your take on the challenge.   What do you use to fill your shakers?  Glitter?  Sequins?  Prills? Sand?  Flower Soft?  There are so many possibilities! 

Here are a few card ideas to help get you started:
