Crafter's Castle Video Hop · Taylormadecards4u Design Team

Shake One in the Hay and Spit on It!

It sounds gross, but it’s not! I’ll take one with an extra cherry on top, please!

“Shake One in the Hay and Spit on It” is soda jerk lingo for a strawberry shake with raspberries on top. These guys had a slang all their own for calling out orders. Soda fountains had handbooks of recipes they had to memorize, but hundreds of variations were created on the fly by the creative Soda Jerks. They had to put on a show to get that tip!

Today’s post is part of the new Taylormadecards4u/Crafter’s Castle Challenge collaboration featuring the Soda Fountain Shoppe!

The Taylormadecards4u Inspiration Team will host a video hop with the Crafter’s Castle Design Team each month featuring the newest Taylormadecards4u digital kit. The featured kit will be the prize on the Crafter’s Castle Challenge blog and if you link up to the challenge and use digital products from the TMC4u Shop, you get a second entry! Take advantage of this 20% discount code to the TMC4u Shop so that you can get that second entry to the Crafter’s Castle challenge…type in Loyalty in the promo code box in the shopping cart!

I thought I’d get a creative jump start for the new year with an art journal layout.

The kit can be printed on your home computer “as is” for fussy cutting or “print and cut” using a die cutting machine. You can also create some fantastic digital designs. I’ve shared details in the video on how I transformed the images using Photoshop Elements for a 3-dimensional effect. You can watch the video tutorial here or on my Youtube channel.

Here are a few close ups showing all the detail I’ve added like distressing, shadowing and embossing with metal!

I’ve included the full list of inspirational videos with links below 😉.

  1. Well, that title certainly made me stop and take a look! I had no idea about the ‘lingo’ and I’m old enough to have experienced a soda fountain or two. A good day is when you learn something new – thanks for making my day. – Kriss

    1. 🤣 Oh yeah, that bit of slang will grab your attention for sure! I didn’t know about it either. I did a little research and found a website with a list of soda jerk slang. Some of the phrases are hilarious! Glad I could pass on some new info!
