Digital shaker elements?

One of the elements I love in physical scrapbooking is shaker elements. There's something about the colorful glitter, words, cute animals or other elements inside that little shaker-flair or shaker-shape that is so fun, I feel like a kid again.

Made me wish there was a digital equivalent, with a variety of choices of inside elements to fit myriad themes. Has anyone seen anything like this?

Another fun idea Lori!

I've been thinking about making something like this for a while but wasn't sure if digital scrappers would want to use them (since they lose the movement and tactile fun of the physical version). Lori, do you have any physical versions you can link to, to show me what you're thinking of and how you like to use them? Pics of paper layouts where you've included shakers, for example?

I make and sell digital shaker tags all the time and people LOVE them. you just need to add a little dimension to a pocket album pocket and fill it with beads and such and it will look pretty realistic on a printed page.


Exactly! Here's a Pinterest board I like as inspiration:

Thanks for sharing your board Lori. I'm a bit obsessed with making shaker pockets in real life, so I'm going to try a few of those!

Thanks for all these great examples, Lori! I can't wait to try this out in digital form.

Ooohh. I can't wait to see them!!!

I've used a Photoshop script, free from, with great success (example: Robbie's Rockin Red - Hearts Scatter); it's called 'Scatter Things'.

This is great!

Just saw the new shaker kits! Thank you!!!

Thanks for reminding me!

I was inspired by something I saw on your pinterest board. I added mine to the commons.

I'm not sure if this is the same as shaker pockets but I like to fill shapes with glitter and flowers, etc. Here's one I was working on

I loaded some shaker flairs to the Commons area, a year ago or so. (In case they may be of interest to you)

Thank you all!!!!
You are all amazing!
