Smile! Everything Will Be Okay

KP card close up

Hi there readers! I’m always pleased to bring you some fabulous inspiration from the talented and equally sweet Laura Bassin! If you’ve been reading my posts lately you may have noticed my dreary disposition on the dreary weather in the mid-west, and my open armed WELCOME for bright colored projects!! This one featuring Kelly Purkey products and Simon Says Stamp Ink definitely takes the cake!

Don’t forget to watch Laura’s video below on the whole process! Enjoy! :)

  1. I agree – best video ever! Love the dancing – your husband is hilarious! Awesome card too – thank you for the video tutorial. I have never made a shaker card before but I am so inspired now!

  2. What a great card. And such fun to watch you create it. I’m going to try it with a heart die for Valentines Day. Thanks for sharing your talents!

  3. OMGoodness! I love the color pallet on this card and the sequins just take it over the top! Thank you so much for the video… I always enjoy watching how the experts do it :)

  4. Ha-ha!! Not only a perfectly wonderful card but lots of fun watching it too. Your family are good sports aren’t they? Thanks for the cheery video.

  5. OMGosh…..thank you so much for the much needed laugh! How cute and adorable! And, you made a great memory along with a great card. Thanks so much for sharing!

  6. Oh, anyone would be drawn to this card and SMILE! I adore it! Thanks for sharing the video, Laura and SS!

  7. Not only do I love your videos but I love watching you! You always make me laugh out loud! Thanks for spreading the joy!

  8. Wonderful card! The video was too cute. My daughter is setting next to me and said, “what does ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ have to do with card-making?” :-D So of course I showed her the card – love the colorful sequins and card background too.

  9. Oh, I definitely appreciate this bright and cheery card! I adore the fabulous sequins bouncing around inside that smile window! Thanks so much for sharing this delightfully fun creation!

  10. Sooooooooo pretty and fresh!! I am totally ready for spring…..but here in Idaho, we have a lot of winter ahead of us. We have near-zero temps on the way again in a few days. We had a reprieve for a couple of weeks while the rest of the country had record-breaking lows. Now it is our turn again. Ugh…
