Pocket Scrapbooking Shaker Journal Card Tutorial Using Unique Laser Design's Snowflake Embellishments!

We received our very first snow storm of the season on Thanksgiving Day this past week! It was AMAZING! I was able to capture a fantasic photo of my daughter trying to eat the incredibly chunky morsels of ice. I decided to preserve the memory in my pocket scrapbooking album by creating a shaker journal card with Unique Laser Design's snowflake embellishments. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!


"SNOW!" Pocket Scrapbooking 
Shaker Journal Card
Okay, let's do this:
Printed my Instagram photo &
grabbed this 4x6 woodgrain 

patterned scrapbooking paper 
from my stash.

Adhered the IG photo to the 
journal card with Uhu glue.
Messy stamped this text background 
on the journal card.
Distressed the journal card edges 
with black archival ink.
Doodled around the photo with a black
Signo Uni-ball (broad) pen.

Stamped this Dylusions tag on the 
journal card with black archival ink.

Stamped this Ali Edward's sentiment 
directly on the photo using 
black StazOn ink.

Added blue Thickers for my title.
Added messy date stamps with 
archival ink and journaled 
with my black Signo Uni-Ball 
(broad) ink pen.
Doodled around the title with a black
Signo Uni-ball (broad) pen.
Added details to the doodles 
around the photos using a
 'Fire Red" Montana paint pen.
Doodled around the title with silver &
clear Gelli Roll pens.
Unique Laser Design's MDF & 
acrylic snowflake embellishments.
Pulled some sequins (aqua & silver)
 and faux snowflakes from my stash.
Placed the ULD embellishments & 
sequins on top of the journal card
 then covered the journal card
with a clear Heidi Swapp "play"

 overlay from the Heidi Swapp 
"Overlays" Value Kit by Project Life.
Doodle stitched the edges 

of the journal card.
