Every Day I’m Sparklin’

Today is my day to share my UK Scrap Addicts layout and the theme this month is Sparkle! I created a free cut file that you can find over on the UKSA blog and I chose to create my first ever shaker pocket with it!

I knew I wanted to created a border type of effect with it so I placed all my papers first. Then I set about creating the shaker pocket which was a bit trickier than I imagined, especially as it has so many edges.

Firstly I cut some clear acetate from some packaging to fit the back of the stars in a continuous piece. Then I lined the edge of the cut file with some 3d foam tape. This was quite tricky! I filled each star aperture with some sequins and then put the “lid” on using some off cuts of unicorn paper. It doesn’t really matter what’s on this paper as you don’t see much of it, it’s more about the colours.

I did have to jiggle things around a bit as some of the sequins escaped and I realised how many holes I had made! I was really happy with it though and I finished off the layout with some more sequins, some puffy stickers from the same Dream Big range and some flat stickers too.

I can really see me doing another shaker pocket very soon and I’m glad I tried it but I think I’ll do a simpler shape next time!

With love and colour

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
