The Sun O’Clock paper pack sure has me in the mood for summer and the upcoming and much needed holidays!!!
The second I saw the ice-cream paper I knew I wanted to make a shaker card with the confetti representing ice-cream sprinkles. The edge-to-edge shaker design was invented by Ilda @ilovedoingallthingscrafty, and I am so glad she did because this design is so quick to make and with much less fuss (and mess) than using foam tape or shaker pouches.
Sun O'Clock Shaker Card

Card Instructions

  • The finished card measures 12 x 15.7 cm and heavyweight white cardstock was used as the base.
  • The ice-cream panel was cut to size 14.4 x 11 cm, making sure to include as many yummy scoops as I could and to have them centred.
  • A piece of packaging cellophane (I hoard, I mean save, 😊the packaging from stamp and die sets for such applications; A) was cut 16.5 x 13 cm- essentially it needs to be bigger than the ice-cream panel (B). Apply double sided tape to all 4 sides to the back of the ice-cream panel (B). Fold over 3 of the cellophane edges, sealing the edges but leaving one side open to insert the shaker elements into the pocket created (C).

  • Fill the pocket with sequins, confetti or beadz. Seal the 4th edge.
  • Glue a panel of cardstock to the back to ensure the cellophane edges don’t come loose.
  • Adhere the shaker pouch to a piece of coloured cardstock measuring 15.2 x 11.7 cm, and then adhere to the card base.
  • One of the edge strips in the paper pack was perfect to add as a sentiment, cut into 3 pieces. I added 3 layers of cardstock behind each strip to give the strips some sturdiness and elevation on the card.
  • Enjoy the shakey shake!

Notebook

I recently got myself a We R Memory Keepers mini-cinch to make notebooks – these make great gifts and the options are endless. I love using paperpacks for these projects because everything co-ordinates so beautifully. For this notebook, I stepped things up a bit by adding decorated dividers and an acetate cover with a colour-changing sentiment.

Sun O'Clock Notebook
  • The measurements given are to accommodate an A5 notepad (I get from MerryPak or PNA, pages measure 21.1 x 14.5 cm) .
  • For the front and back covers, cut 2 pieces of grey board (1250 micron) measuring 15.1 x 21.9 cm.
  • Each grey board piece will need a decorative cover piece (outer cover) measuring 18 x 24 cm and an inside cover piece measuring 21.5 x 14.7 cm (D).
Sun O'Clock Notebook - requirements
  • To apply the outer cover page to the grey board: I like to use craft glue that I dilute with a little water and apply to the grey board with a brush. Apply the cover piece to the grey board and use a brayer to work out any air bubbles.
  • Turn the assemblage with the grey board facing up. Cut each corner at an angle (E). Apply double sided tape and craft glue to all 4 edges (I like the tape to get immediate positioning and the craft glue ensures that the flap doesn’t lift over time). Fold each edge onto the grey board and glue in place (F).

  • Glue the inside cover to hide the grey board.
  • Cut 4 dividers from the decorative paper measuring 15.5 x 21.2 cm. These measurements are to accommodate the tabs. I used the We R Memory Keepers tab punch board to create the medium sized tabs. There are several other tab punches which can also be used instead of the punch board, or you could create your own using washy tape or folded cardstock and gluing to the edge of the paper.
  • I decorated each divider with elements from the Sun O’Clock Aquaholic page and embellished further with diecuts that I shopped from my stash (G).
  • For my favourite part of this book- the acetate cover. Heat transfer vinyl (HTV) is more commonly used on fabric, but I love to work with the chameleon (holographic) HTV and try find any excuse to use it 😊 Using the Brother Scan-n-Cut I cut the “Good Vibes” custom design from the holographic htv and heat pressed it onto a heat resistant acetate panel measuring 15 x 21.9 cm. Look at how the colour changes, WOW. More conventional sticky vinyl can also be used and would not require the need for heat resistant acetate.
  • I also included an acetate cover for the back.
  • The holes were punched with the mini-cinch and the notebook was assembled with 0.625” binding wires. This width wire accommodates 60 note pages, plus the covers and dividers.
