Collection – Date Night

Hello there and welcome! Spring is definitely in the air and it makes me want to document soft, pretty pages in spring colors. Today I have a page to share with you that documents a recent trip to a local farm- a perfect springtime activity!
 
Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Spring Layout
When I saw the Backwood's Lovin' paper, I immediately thought of a shutter bulletin board, and based my design around this inspiration piece.

To complete the layout, I used a mixture of the Date Night and Twirly Girly collections, along with the super versatile alphabet stamps from Scrumptious.

To create this simple, quick layout, here are the steps I took:
1) Adhere an 8"x12" piece of the Plaid is Rad paper on the left side of a 12"x12" piece of white cardstock. Along the right hand bottom corner of the paper, stamp 'farm' with the Scrumptious alpha stamps and add 'girl' from the Twirly Girly sticker sheet to create the title.
2) Using a craft knife and a ruler, cut slits in the Backwood's Lovin' paper and insert photos, small pieces of patterned paper and journaling cards, tied with twine. To add more interest, using the edge of your scissors, scuff up and tear the edges of the papers and journaling cards.
3) Embellish around the photos with butterfly and flower stickers, popped up with dimensional adhesive, brads and enamel hearts. Finish with a few drops of ink.
 
Inspiration can be found almost anywhere, if you look for it. Enjoy your spring activities and documenting!

Chickaniddy Crafts April Planner Spread Full by Carson RiuttaHello again lovelies! I'm back today to share with you my monthly planner makeover. Each month, in my planner, I create a spread for my month at a glance calendar. This is the first page I will turn to every time I open my planner and it's so fun to be greeted by such an explosion of texture and color. It certainly makes the mundane task of scheduling that much more enjoyable.

Chickaniddy Crafts April Planner Spread Closeup Flower by Carson RiuttaI wanted this month to mirror all the goodness that was happening around me in nature, lots of color and florals. With that in mind, I took these steps to complete this vibrant spread.

1. I started by trimming some mixed media paper to the right size for my A5 planner (8.5 x 5.5 inches).

2. I chose my colors and watercolored the background with abandon. There are no rules here, just play and have fun.

3. I chose a floral cut file from my growing collection, resized it in the Silhouette software and then cut it twice from the Chickaniddy "Together is Better" paper.

4. I ran the page through my sewing machine and stitched just the leaves to the background paper.

5. At this point I thought the page needed a little more peachy pink so I grabbed some coral spray and started flicking some color into the corners.

6. Now that the background was complete, the fun of embellishing the page began. I used all the gorgeous Chickaniddy supplies pictured below and really went to town, stamping and layering. You may have seen those flower brads on my last post, I just couldn't stop making them!

Chickaniddy Supplies: TG14EB02 - Twirly Girly Sticker Sheet, DN14EB02 - Date Night Illustration Stickers, DN14EB06-Date Night Brads, TG14EB06 - Twirly Girly Brads,, jg14st01 - Jolly Good Mini Countdown Clear Stamps, jg14st02 - Mini Illustrated Clear Stamps, sc14st01 - Mini Alpha Clear Stamps, jg14eb07 - Mini Sticker Sentiments, TG14EB0 - Twirly Girly Alpha Stickers, DN14EB01 - Date Night Alpha Stickers

7. Because the left side of the spread was so vibrant, I thought I would keep the calendar side uncluttered and ready to work. I used letter stickers from both the Twirly Girly and Date Night collections as well as the countdown stamp set from the Jolly Good collection to complete my calendar.

Chickaniddy Crafts April Planner Makeover Bookmark Stamping by Carson Riutta8. No planner is complete without a bookmark and I decided to make mine for the month from a Date Night journaling card. You can see how I repeatedly stamped with the HAPPY stamp from Jolly Good to create my own patterned background.

And that's exactly how this spread makes me feel every time I open my planner, just plain happy!

I hope your month is happy and productive as well!

Hello, it's Amy here with a card that focuses on flowers!  I'm like most crafters and love working with blooms.  They are perfect for any season, especially for spring time cards! 
 
Amy Tsuruta Chickaniddy Crafts Cards W/Flowers
 
TIP:  Incorporate the contrasting borders of 12x12 paper
 
As a cardmaker, I tend to gravitate towards the 6x6 paper pads, but do love 12x12 sheets too.  I work to get more out of a sheet of paper by using the border trim that 12x12's have.  Who doesn't love polka dots?!
 
Even though the base panel has a subtle pattern to it, I decided to add a bit more texture to my card by using a stencil and light modeling paste.
 
spiffy tags
Date Night - Spiffy Tags
 
I love the large print of 12x12 paper.  It makes it a snap to fussy cut shapes, like these blooms:
 
awesome blossom
Date Night - Awesome Blossom
 
The center bloom has been adhered to the card using foam adhesive giving the design a bit of interest.
 
To add a bit of rustic charm to my card, I added some twine.

 

Amy Tsuruta Chickaniddy Crafts Cards W/Flowers 2
 
TIP:  By hole punching semi-circles to your card, it will help anchor twine.
 
I used a sentiment strip as a tag and threaded the twine through the top.
 
this and that
Twirly Girly - This and That
I think that the twine is a nice touch with the picnic basket.

Heyyie dear friends! Here's sharing my take on a card inspired by the spring colours and blooms!:D 

Cassandra Chen Chickaniddy Crafts Spring Flower Card 

Supplies: Twirly Girly Collection- Patterned Papers: Party Dress (TG14OS06), Piggy Tails (TG14OS12), Twirly Girly Sticker Sheet (TG14EB02), Date Night Collection- Illustration Stickers (DN14EB02)

 Cassandra Chen Chickaniddy Crafts Spring Flower Card2

Firstly, I created the background using the technique of random ink splatters, distress stains and adding confetti to the card. 

Secondly, to create the flower bouquet, I used a small piece of kraft wrapping paper and netting to create the bouquet effect, then layered the flowers from the Twirly Girly and Date Night collection sticker sheet.

Thirdly, finishing it up with a small twine at the bottom of the bouquet and adding embellishments to it.

Hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed making this card!

 Hi there! Leigh here to share a card that I made using one of my very favourite elements to include on a card: flowers. And my favourite way to add flowers to my cards is to stamp them. So I pulled out my Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night Clear Stamps and used the fabulous blooms and leaf images that are featured in this set.

Date night Stamps
 
 
Here's my card:
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Stamped Flower Card
 
1. I started by trimming some white cardstock to 4x5.25" and stamping my flowers in sweet blush,and berry sorbet inks.
2. I stamped the flowers onto some post-it notes, trimmed them out with some scissors and used them as masks to stamp the coral flower and the leaves.

3. I stamped the leaves near the bottom of my panel as well. 
4. I diecut a piece of the 12x12 Itty Bitty Ballerina patterned paper & the  Mini Sticker Tag with a banner diecut and adhered them to my card. 
5. I stamped two flowers onto another piece of white cardstock and trimmed them  out by hand before adding them to my card.

6. I adhered my card to a piece of the 12x12 Itty Bitty Ballerina patterned paper  that I trimmed to 4.25x5.5."
 
Thanks for looking!
 

 Hello there! Inspiration can be found everywhere, but one place brings it all together: Pinterest. Today I want to share a pin that caught my eye:
 
Pinterest Image
 
The green colors and neutrals, the collection of little pieces of paper and photos, and the clothesline look inspired this layout.
 
Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Pinterest Inspired page
 
 
To create the layout, I used a mix of Twirly Girly, Date Night and Scrumptious collections.
 
Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Pinterest Inspired page supplies
 
 
Supplies: Date Night Collection- Awesome Blossom paper/DN14OS01, Cutest Couple paper/DN14OS05, Alpha Stickers/DN14EB01, Mini Sticker Tags/DN14EB04, Brads/DN14EB06, Enamel Hearts/DN14EB07; Twirly Girly Collection- This and That paper/TG14OS07, A Girl's Generation paper/TG14OS09, Alpha Stickers/TG14EB01, Sticker Sheet/TG14EB02, Enamel Hearts/TG14EB07; Scrumptious collection- Corn on the Cob paper/SC14OS12, Alpha Stickers/SC14EB02, Journal Tags/SC14EB03, Mini Sticker Banners/SC14EB05, Die-Cut Tags/SC14EB04, Mini Brads/SC14EB08, Enamel Stars/SC14EB09
 
 
Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Pinterest Inspired page close-up
 
To create the layout, I started by gathering green and neutral papers, tags and stickers from the various collections. To put the layout together, here are the steps I took:
1) On a piece of 12"x12" cardstock, insert two brads equidistant from the top of the layout, 1/4" away from the sides. Wrap a piece of baker's twine around the brads on each side and tighten the brad to secure. 
2) Gather a combination of 3"x4" journaling cards, a 3"x3" photo with a die-cut frame, and tags. Group them together in three bunches and adhere the smaller pieces to the top of the larger pieces, adding dimensional adhesive at the bottom layer and adhere to the background paper, just below the baker's twine. Slide clothespins over the top of the baker's twine and the paper layers so that they appear to be hanging. 
2) Repeat the same process with the bottom 'clothes line', using a 3"x5" photo.
3) Adhere two strips of patterned paper to the bottom of the layout and stamp the date. Adhere epoxy shapes in three groups around the layout to create a visual triangle.

It's awesome that anything can be interpreted into a layout, and this pin was the perfect starting point for a page that I absolutely love. How would you interpret the pin? Thanks for joining me today and happy creating!

 

Hello and Happy Easter! Allie here today, sharing an Easter layout about the Easter Bunny, or should I say, the Easter Pup! I couldn't resist sticking bunny ears on my dog and snapping a picture. He makes the cutest Easter bunny!

2. Next, I used the eggs to create a background, then adhered them to white cardstock.
 
3. I added lots and lots of layers to help my smaller photo stand out. I used stickers to embellish and add my title--I love stickers!

Hey, it's Pam sharing a Spotlight Sunday with you!! I just have to say that we, here at Chickaniddy Crafts, feel incredibly lucky to be able to see so many wonderful pages, projects and more on the internet. We feel very lucky to do these spotlight Sundays. A few weeks ago I spotted a great project (the planner) on instagram and I knew I wanted to feature it. Carolee agreed and now we have some fabulous projects to share!! So exciting! Let's get to know our artist in the spotlight.
Carolee

"Hi everyone! I’m Carolee, a geeky girl living in Los Angeles with her game developer hubby and two corgi fur babies that keep me very busy.

I found my way into paper crafting about two years ago when I stumbled upon Project Life and from there, an obsession was born. I come from a crafty family but scrapbooking was something that we never did! Since finding Project Life, I’ve branched out into card making, traditional 12x12 pages and even decorating planners, my newest favorite.

I currently blog at caroleeflatley.com but you can find me most often on Instagram (www.instagram.com/caroleeflatley) Check me out there to see what I’m working on along with pictures of my dogs, my latest trip to Disneyland or my wacky finds!"

CARD:

Carolee Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Card

"This card, which I made for my husband on our anniversary, uses Date Night and a few pieces I had in my stash. The base is the back side of Together is Better. I cut Dance Party on my Silhouette Cameo to make the top layer. The flower and tile stickers are from the Illustration Stickers."

 

PLANNER PAGES:

Carolee Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Planner

"I’m obsessed with planning (despite having not all that much to track!) and I love decorating out my pages. This week in November of last year uses a lot of the Scrumptious collection. At the top left, I layered a cut from the front of New Harvest with some of the Journal Tags and Mini Sentiments. I used the Journal Tags again to remind me I was only a week away from having to feed 10 people and then added some of the Illustration stickers in the bottom right to balance everything out."

 

PROJECT LIFE LAYOUT:

Carolee Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Page

"I love using my regular scrapbooking supplies in my Project Life pages and the 6x6 pads make it really easy. This page relies almost entirely on the Date Night 6x6 pad. That, along with a few dies and the Illustration and Alpha stickers, makes this style of pocket scrapbooking a snap!"

Crafter Spotlight

Good day all. It's Pam here sharing our crafter in the spotlight. I found this talented scrapper, Michelle, on Instagram when she tagged her beautiful card #Chickaniddy . I am always so happy to see people using Chickaniddy and in creative ways too.  Michelle has a beautiful classic style that will inspire you to create your own cards. Can't wait to share her projects so here we go!

Kennedy Grace Designs

"My name is Michelle, and I'm the owner and creative mind behind Kennedy Grace Creations. 

I have been married to my best friend, Steve, for 27 years and we have two grown children. Our daughter Danielle, lives in Kansas, and our son Kristopher, is currently serving in the Air Force. There is one more, the ruler of our house, our four legged fur baby, Pippin. 

What I love the most (aside from my family - of course) is creating anything and everything. I have been crafting for just about as long as I can remember. Creation is my passion, and I love everything about it. My mind is always thinking of what I can do next.

I started out scrapbooking many years ago, creating simple layouts, but I have since moved on to doing mostly cards and mini albums. I love scrapbook paper, and you might say think I have an addiction to it. Which might be true, just ask my family! Paper, embellishments, markers, stamps, dies, sequins, buttons and so much more is in my repertoire of tools. I sell most of the cards and mini albums I make on my square store.  I am so excited to be sharing with you a few cards I created with Chickaniddy."

My blog : http://kennedygracecreations.blogspot.com/

“Wonderful things”
Kennedy Grace Designs Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Image 2Kennedy Grace Designs Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Image 2b
How I created my card:
1. I used the large stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn to cut a piece of the plaid paper from Date Night 6 x 6 pad to fit the A2 size card base.  
2. Using the next size of stitched die cut another piece from the paper line as well.  
3. The third layer is a water colored panel that has an image I used from Clearly Besotted that I heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I colored the image with Tombow watercolor markers but instead of using water I used a Wink of Stella glitter pen to move the color around.  Making the coloring very soft to match the design paper.  I cut that layer with the fem frame die from Mama Elephant.  Both layers got adhered together with foam tape before getting added to the card base.
4. Sentiment is from Simon says Stamp that I heat embossed with a Champaign colored embossing powder from Recollections.  
5. Lastly I added a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh sequins and a few enamel dots.  

 

“Hoppy Birthday”
Kennedy Grace Designs Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Image 3
"How I made my card:
1. I used the large stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn to cut a piece of the flower paper from Holly Jolly 6 x 6 pad then took of the landscape border dies from Mama Elephant to cut the scalloped edge on about  three quarters the way down.  Leaving the rest of the room for  the green stripe paper also from the Holly Jolly paper on the bottom to fill the A2 size card base.   
2. I attached the green stripe first because I made the flowered layer in to a shaker panel.
3. To make the shaker part of the card I cut a scallop out of the flowered piece I already cut adhered a piece of clear acetate to enclose the shaker goodies.  I cut a piece of fun foam just a little bit bigger than the scalloped opening.  I colored the bunny from Mama Elephant Up and Away Stamp Set using Prisma colored pencils and gamsol.  I adhered to a pink layer to the card base and putting the bunny angled in the opening.  Then put the fun foam down to hold all of the shaker goodies.  I used some seed beads in several colors to fill the shaker.  
4. Before adding the flowered layer I wrapped some white bakers twine right above the scalloped part of the flowered paper and made a loopy bow and added a button for the finishing touch. "

 

Kennedy Grace Designs Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Image 1Kennedy Grace Designs Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Image 1b
"How I made my card:
1. I used two different Stitched rectangle dies from Simon Says stamp it cuts stitching on both the inside and outside of the pattern paper.  The pattern paper was used from the Date Night 6 x 6 pad.  I cut it out and then cut just a piece of smooth white card stock.  Out of the center section of the pattern paper I cut a circle using a stitched circle die from Little Inkers it also cuts both the inside and outside stitched lines as well as one from the white cardstock.  
2. This allows me to use the pattern paper as the frame, the white as the next and the circle as the center layers making a very flat card with big details.  
3. In the center circle I stamped a bible verse from Verve which I heat embossed using the Champaign embossing powder.  
4. Lastly I added a few flowers from I Am Roses and a sprinkling of pearls surrounding the flowers."

 

Thanks Michelle, for sharing your creativity on the blog!
