We have a delightful double feature for you today, featuring a Nature Sketchbook Shaker Card tutorial by Nico Scrap and a French Country Layout tutorial by Katelyn Grosart. Nico gets things moving with his Summery Shaker Card full of beautiful fussy cut imagery and gear embellishments. Katelyn lends her talents next in a simple and subtle layout celebrating her grandma. Check out both informative tutorials below.
Nature Sketchbook Shaker Card
By Nico Scrap
“What I like most about Summer, is the Summer storms, and I like the first sunshine after the storm even more. That’s what I’ve tried to represent with this card. This is my first shaker card and I loved making it. Instead of confetti, glitter or anything else, I’ve decided to put gears inside….of course! Hope you’ll like it!” ~Nico

Amour Scrapbook Layout
By Katelyn Grosart
“Hey, G45 Fans! I’ve been busy playing with the French Country Deluxe Collector’s Edition this month, and I had forgotten how much I love this collection, which is now available at your local scrapbook store. While I was playing, I created this beautiful scrapbook layout that documents a photo of my grandma, which was taken last year when we were on our Alaskan Cruise. Make sure to grab a cup of your favourite beverage, and enjoy the photos and tutorial of my Amour Scrapbook Layout.
Tip: Mix chipboard elements with fussy cut images to create added interest on your layout.
Tip: Choose two corners on your layout to add photo corners to jazz the corners up.
