Welcome to Camp Create 2021 — Join Us for 5️⃣ Days of Challenges and Prizes!

Hello there, campers! Welcome to MFT Camp Create 2021. We'll be with you for the next five days sharing crafty ideas and challenges that take your card making to the next level. Earn badges, share your crafts with your fellow campers, and maybe even win an MFT shopping spree — that's a better camp souvenir than a bag of dirty laundry or a case of poison ivy any day!

Now that we’ve settled in and made our virtual introductions let’s talk about our plan for the week. The goal is to participate in our craft sessions each day and earn your Camp Create badges. As a participant in Camp Create, you immediately earn the badge pictured above. Copy this image and share it on your blog, Facebook page, or Instagram feed to let everyone back home know how you spent your summer vacation.

Today’s Craft: Spectacular Shakers 

It's the last day of July and we're in the dog days of summer. Why not embrace the heat with a sunny shaker packed with cheery yellow sequins like Stephanie has? There are endless ways to incorporate shakers into your cards — from bold sentiments like this example to window designs with coordinating pouches to full panel cards that make the shaker the primary feature! We can't wait to see what approach our campers take to this fun challenge.

Join counselor Stephanie today to learn more about her process for today's camp craft.

I love Camp Create!! All the tips and the inspiration are always fabulous and fun.
P.S. I am unable to post the badges for each day on my Flickr account for some reason (I don’t
usually have problems with badges). I hope that will not disqualify me. I do post the link for
that days post with no problem.

Great card, Stephanie. I seldom make shakers. My grandson will be 6 soon- bet he’d love one.

I have had troubles with the shaker contents sticking to the foam and then it ruins the shaker effect. Any tips or suggestions?

Yay for Camp Create! One question – do we need to use MFT products only, or can we use anything? Thank you for doing this! :) ~ Andrea
