Collection – Scrumptious

Hello, it's Amy here sharing a card using Spring Colors!  I'm smitten with the color green, I love to use it crafting and I have quite a bit in my wardrobe too.   I love to combine green with pink, it is such a happy color combo, don't you agree?

I'm a huge fan of craft foam.  I've been using it quite often on my projects.  It's versatile to use as a backing or to use alone.  I die cut white craft foam with a polaroid shape and added some floral print paper to the interior.  The craft foam makes a great frame for the paper.

Isn't it great that it matches with the Jolly Good collection.  That's the sheer genius of the Chickaniddy Crafts Collections, they mix 'n match easily!

Hey there, friends!  It's Missy here with you today.  I was so excited to put together this Spring layout featuring bright and happy Spring colors!  Those are my favorite...sunny, bold and fresh.  Spring makes me think of all these things.  I wanted to create a bright and fun background for this one, and so I incorporated some mixed media into the project.  I used products from Twirly Girly, Date Night and Scrumptious for this.

Missy Whidden Chickaniddy Crafts Spring Layout

Supplies Used:  Date Night--Downtown DN140S03, Enamel Hearts DN14EB07; Twirly Girly--Mini Sticker Sentiments TG14EB05, Alpha Stickers TG14EB01, Enamel Hearts TG14EB07; Scrumptious--Autumn Haze SC140S06, Frolic in the Leaves SC140S11, Fall Bouquet SC140S01, Check Please SC140S09, Nutmeg SC140S07, Friends & Family SC140S08, Clear Stamps SC14ST01, Die Cut Tags SC14EB04, Journal Tags SC14EB03, Mini Sticker Tags SC14EB06, Mini Sticker Sentiments SC14EB07, Mini Brads SC14EB08; Liquitex Gesso, Brother Sewing Machine, Coats Thread, Silhouette Cameo, Recollections Washi Tape, October Afternoon Date Stamp, American Crafts Roller Stamp, pop dots, Ranger Archival Ink, Sharpie pen

Here's how I created this layout:

1.  I coated my background paper with some clear gesso so that my paint would have a place to settle.  Without the gesso, a lot of water can tear right through it.  After that, I used a lined stencil and some modeling paste to create those subtle lines.  I also used a circle stencil, an orange gelato and my finger to smudge those orange circles all over the page.

Here you can see the circles and the paste a bit closer.  I love the texture it creates!

2.  Next, I brought out the watercolors and dabbed lots of pink, yellow and blue around the page.  There was no rhyme or reason...just painting and dabbing here and there so it would show where I wanted it to throughout the page.  Here you can see it better.  I also added some machine stitching in various colors.  I didn't use green watercolors, so I used green thread to stitch with.

3.  Next, I added my paper layers under the photo and decided what embellishments I wanted to use.

4.  Lastly, I added these fun die cuts to the bottom of the page and paired them with some stickers and a cute enamel heart.

These adorable frames are in the Die Cut bag....so cute!

 

I hope this inspires you in some way to use some Spring colors on a project....the Chickaniddy lines are perfect for it!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

 

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!

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!

Hi Chickaniddy friends, Allie here today and I am just loving SPRING! I love the reprieve from winter weather, the flowers blooming, the new beginnings, and the sunshine! We had a particularly lovely day and I had to take some selfies to document the sunshine (and my good hair day). I decided to turn it into a spring-themed layout!

Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts Flowers Layout
 
I wanted this special layout to have a special title, so I used the fabulous silver foil specialty paper. It is STUNNING in person!
 
 
I gathered my favorite papers from Twirly Girly, Date Night, and Scrumptious, and got busy creating this fun page!
 
1. I traced a petal onto a piece of scratch paper. I cut it out and used it as a template to cut petals from several different patterned papers. To make this process go faster, I cut three petals out at a time. 
 
2. Once I had my petals, I covered the center of a doily with adhesive, then used it as the base of my flowers. I made sure to mix up the patterns on each flower. Once each flower was complete, I placed a sticker in the middle as a part of the flower.
 
3. Once I had three flowers, I placed them, along with another doily in a grid pattern on my background sheet. I added my photo, layers, and some stickers! I love the stickers from the Date Night collection!

4. Finally, I cut my title out from the silver foil using my die cutting machine. I used the "offset" tool to create a border around it with a patterned paper.

I love how happy and spring-like this layout is! Happy Spring to you!
 

 

Hey there!  Missy here with you today.  Nothing says Spring to me more than beautiful flowers.  I wanted to incorporate a lot of flowers onto my page.  Flowers are an embellishment I don't use a lot of, but I think they add such a pretty feel to a layout.  Of course, you know I love to go bold and bright, so I went through all of my Chickaniddy products and pulled flowers from the Jolly Good and Scrumptious collections.  I love the reds, pinks, yellows and oranges mixed together.  I wanted to add some blue flowers, so I used the flower stamp from the Jolly Good line and some blue ink to create my own.

Supplies Used:  Jolly Good--Sweater Weather JG140S04, Snow Play JG140S09, Sticker Sheet JG14EB01, Clear Stamps JG14ST01; Scrumptious--Home Sweet Home SC140S02, Check Please SC140S09, Hay Ride SC140S05, Friends & Family SC140S08, Sticker Sheet SC14EB02, Die Cut Tags SC14EB04, Alpha Stickers SC14EB02, Clear Stamps SC14ST01, Mini Brads SC14EB08; Faber Castell Gelatos, Brother Sewing Machine, Coats Thread, Silhouette Cameo, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Heidi Swapp Color Shine, October Afternoon Date Stamp, Ranger Archival Ink, Sharpie Pen.

Here's how I created this layout:

1.  I wanted to use several of the bright patterned papers from these two collections, so I decided on a pie chart design.  I cut a large pie chart on my Cameo and used the cut outs to trace around each of the patterned papers.  Then I simply adhered them down and stitched around the edges.

 

2.  I wanted to add a bit of paint, so I used a few different colors of gelatos and colored them onto a piece of plastic packaging.  I spritzed it with water and then rubbed the plastic on to the paper.  It leaves a messy watercolor look.  Here's how I did that:

Draw some scribbles on the plastic.

 

Spray some water onto it (just a little bit) and smoosh the plastic together to mix it in.

 

Turn the plastic over and press it down onto the paper, kind of like a stamp.

 

Keep moving it around and pressing down on it until you get this messy watercolor look.

3.  I added some vellum and paper under my photos and used pop dots to raise them up.  Then I began adding the flower clusters.

 

4.  I added some machine stitching and mixed my title with a Cameo cut, some alpha stickers and stamps.

 

Here's a close up of the cute paper, mixed media coloring, stitching and thread.  I also outlined the pie chart pieces with a black pen to make them stand out a little more.

 

The flowers really pop all next to each other.  I love the bright colors!

 

I hope this inspires you to scrap something pretty with flowers for Spring!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

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!"

 

Thanks, Carolee for letting us feature your projects today!!

Hello! It's Meghann here with you today, and to continue our month of trends, I'm going to talk to you about layering! I created a layout which uses layering in every way, from the papers behind my photos, to embellishments and even layered color on the background paper.

Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts March Layering

To create the layers on this layout, I used a mix of Jolly Good, Scrumptious, Twirly Girly and Date Night collections.

Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts March Layering supplies

Supplies: Twirly Girly collection- Keepsakes paper/TG14OS04, Piggy Tails paper/TG14OS12, 12x12 Sticker Sheet/TG14EB02, Brads/TG14EB06; Scrumptious collection- Home Sweet Home paper/SC14OS02, Journal Tags/SC14EB03, Die-Cut Tags/SC14EB04; Jolly Good collection- Holiday paper/JG14OS08, Journal Tags/JG14EB03, Sentiments Mini Stickers/JG14EB07, Enamel Stars/JG14EB09; Date Night collection- Illustration Stickers/DN14EB02

Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts March Layering close-up

When creating layers, I keep a few things in mind:

  • I like to be sure that the patterns in my patterned papers are contrasting in color, pattern size and design.
  • To differentiate between layers, I add dimensional adhesive on some of the layers, and usually always on my photo to make it 'pop.'
  • Tucking stickers and journaling tags between the edges of my patterned paper adds extra, smaller layers to the mix.
  • Handmade embellishments can be another way to add more layers, as I did here with the large star.

Here's how I created this layout:

  1. Layer three patterned papers and a gold doily under a 4"x4" square photo and adhere to the background paper. Tuck journaling tags and stickers behind the photo, which is adhered with dimensional adhesive. Add the title to the journaling card on the right.
  2. Type journaling and adhere to the backside of the Scrumptious die-cut frame. Tuck behind photo and adhere. Adhere two more frames to the bottom left and upper right side of the layouts, backed with paper and embellished with stickers and enamel stars.
  3. Create a large embellishment by cutting the star from the Keepsakes paper and topping with the star brad, ticket sticker, baker's twine and enamel star. Adhere to the bottom left side of the  photo.
  4. Add small bits of color to the background by watercoloring in the small stars in colors to match the patterned papers.

Layering is a great technique to use to bring your projects up to the next level. Give it a go today!

 

Hey there, friends!  Missy here with you today.  I hope you're enjoying our month full of scrapbooking trends!  This week we continue with using shapes on your projects.  I'm featuring triangles today.  This is really simple to put together...all you need is your paper and a square punch.

I chose to scrap this cute photo of my husband and daughter about to go for a 4-wheeler ride.  I like the brown and pink in the photo, so I chose various papers from Twirly Girly, Date Night and Scrumptious.  I love how they all look so pretty up next to one another.

Missy Whidden Chickaniddy Crafts March Trends Triangles

Supplies Used:  Twirly Girly--Alpha Stickers TG14EB01, Sticker Sheet TG14EB02, Tea Party TG140S03, Itty Bitty Ballerina TG140S08, Paper Posies TG140S05 Grandma's Quilt TG140S10, Never Grow Up TG140S11, Piggy Tails TG140S12, Sentiment Mini Stickers TG14EB05; Date Night--Brads DN14EB06, Sentiment Mini Stickers DN14EB05, Tags Mini Stickers DN13EB04, Plaid is Rad DN140S12, Cutest Couple DN140S05, Awesome Blossom DN140S01, Sticker Sheet DN14EB02; Scrumptious--Frolic in the Leaves SC140S11, Fall Bouquet SC140S01, Autumn Haze SC140S06, Check Please SC140S09; Other--cardstock, Silhouette Cameo, Coats Thread, Heidi Swapp Color Shine, Heidi Swapp Archival Ink, October Afternoon Date Stamp

Here's a look at how I created those triangles:

1.  I took a 2-inch square punch (but any size will work) and punched a bunch of squares out of all the patterned papers I chose.  Then, I used scissors to cut them in half diagonally.  Easy!

Missy Whidden Chickaniddy Crafts March Trends Triangles technique

 

2.  Next, I just started arranging them onto my page in no particular pattern.  I just made sure the lines matched up and turned them this way and that way until I was happy with the large design of all the triangles together.  I then glued them all down.

3.  The rest was easy...adding a few layers of papers under the photo and adding stickers and embellishments where I wanted them.

Missy Whidden Chickaniddy Crafts March Trends Triangles close-up

 

4.  I added stickers and fussy cut some flowers from this sheet (Awesome Blossom):

Date Night Awesome Blossom

One more look...I really didn't need to add a whole lot more to this with all the different colors and patterns going on.  I did add a few mist splatters to finish it off.

I hope you'll give this a try!  It's really fun, and it's an awesome technique if you don't have a die cutting machine or just don't feel like using it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Chickaniddy friends! Allie with you today, and I have been so excited to share this layout! This is a special one for me because I challenged myself to use stamps, mix collections, and to NOT use pink! Those are some of my scrappy weaknesses that I wanted to defeat, and I knew the Scrumptious Mini Alpha stamps would be a perfect way to jazz up my layout.

Scrumptious Stamps

 Today's trend is diamonds. I love the diamond shape and don't use it often enough!

Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts March Trend Diamond Layout
Chickaniddy Supplies Used: Patterned Paper (sc14os04, sc14os11, sc14eb03, TG14OS06, TG14OS04, DN14OS05, DN14OS08), Stickers (sc14eb05, sc14eb07, TG14EB03, DN14EB03, DN14EB05), Stamps (sc14st01, DN14ST01), Enamel Hearts (DN14EB07)

This layout is a lot easier than it looks!

1. I used my Silhouette cameo to cut out diamonds from a sheet of the Date Night Backwoods Lovin' woodgrain paper.

2. Next, I went through my Chickaniddy stashed and grabbed green and orange patterns from the Twirly Girly, Scrumptious, and Date Night collections. I used one of the cut diamonds to trace and cut from each pattern in order to have the right size to back the background.

3. To create the background, I used washi tape to attach the diamonds on the backside of the paper. It looked pretty messy from the back!

4. Once all the diamonds were covered, I flipped it over and added my layers and photo. I placed the diamond stickers from each collection on each diamond.

Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts March Trend Diamond Layout close-up

5. After everything was in place, it was time to create the title! I used the super fun Scrumptious Mini Alpha clear stamps to stamp out my title in black ink. I cut each letter out, and adhered them to my page. You could use stickers for your title to create a faster page!

Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts March Trend Diamond Layout close-up2

6. Finally, I added some stamps across the top and bottom of the page to tie in with the stamped title. I'm not a very experienced stamper, so I quickly eyeballed and tried to not over think it for a "messy" look.

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you feel inspired to create a page using diamonds!

 

Hello there. It’s Meghann here, and today I’m here to continue our month of trends with shaker elements! I love creating shakers for my projects & on the layout I’m sharing with you today, I created four different shakers and kept each one and its contents focused on one main color.

Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Trend Shakers

To create this layout, I used a mixture of Jolly Good, Scrumptious, Twirly Girly and Date Night collections.

 
Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Trend Shakers supplies
 
‘You Make Me Happy’ Supplies: Jolly Good Collection- Sugar Cookies paper/JG140S02, Alpha Stickers/JG14EB02; Scrumptious Collection- Home Sweet Home paper/SC14OS02, Autumn Haze paper/SC14OS06, Nutmeg paper/SC14OS07, Check Please paper/SC14OS09, Die Cut Tags/SC14EB04, Alpha Stickers/SC14EB02, Enamel Stars/SC14EB09; Twirly Girly Collection- Piggy Tails paper/TG14OS12, Sentiments Mini Stickers/TG14EB05, Enamel Hearts/TG14EB07; Date Night Collection- Tags Mini Stickers/DN14EB04, Enamel Hearts/DN14EB07, Brads/DN14EB06
 
To make my shakers, I pulled four frames from the Scrumptious die-cut tags and chose the same colored paper to back the frame. I adhere a piece of transparency to the backside of the frame and back the opening with strips of dimensional adhesive, being sure that the edges are completely closed so that none of my little ‘bits’ escape the frame.
 
Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Trend Shakers technique
 

To fill the frames, I punched small hearts and circles of patterned paper, added stickers (which I made un-sticky with a bit of baby powder on the backside) sequins and brads. The ingredients inside each of the frames matched the color on the front of the frame. Once I created my frames, here’s how I finished off my layout:

 
 
  1. On each corner of the Sugar Cookies paper, add mist droplets in the four colors of the shaker tags. Cut individual colors of the rays from the Nutmeg paper and adhere them to the corresponding areas on the background.
  2. Print a photo in black and white to fit inside the ‘I Love This Moment’ frame from the Scrumptious die-cut tags. Adhere to the center of the background. Adhere the four shaker frames to each corner of your photo frame. Top the frames with alpha stickers and die-cut words to create your title.
  3. Embellish with black floral die-cuts to add contrast, a sticker to add the date and journal on the lines directly on the Sugar Cookies paper.

Shaker frames are perfect for layouts, cards and project life spreads. Any element in your stash with an opening can be transformed with clear transparency and small elements to create a shaker! Thanks for joining me today and I hope you have fun creating shaker frames for your next project!

Hi there! Leigh here today with a card using a popular trend in card making lately: scripted sentiments.To make my card, I used some Chickaniddy Crafts Scrumptious products.

 
 
Here's my card:
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Script Trend
1. I trimmed my patterned paper to 4x5.25" and diecut a heart from the patterned paper.
2. I diecut three more hearts from white cardstock.
3. I adhered my patterned paper panel (sans heart) to a 4.25x5.5" panel of white cardstock, and stacked the three hearts and adhered them in the spot where the patterned paper heart was removed.
4. I stamped the "love" from the Date Night Clear Stamps on the patterned paper heart
and adhered it over the cardstock hearts.
5. I diecut my "sending" from black cardstock and adhered it to my card.
 
Here's a photo from the side, so you can see the dimension the stacked hearts add to the card.

Hello everyone! Allie with you today, sharing a layout about our sweet niece using a die-cut background.

Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts Trend die cut background
Chickaniddy Supplies Used: Patterned Paper (sc14os04,
sc14os06, sc14os05, sc14os09, sc14os12,) Foil (CN14SP001),
Stickers (sc14eb02), Enamel Stars (sc14eb09), Die-Cuts (sc14eb04)

 

To create this layout I used my number one favorite Chickaniddy paper--Autumn Haze from Scrumptious! I love the ombre watercolor look, and the color scheme is just stunning.

Scrumptious Autumn Haze
 
1. To make this layout, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the Heart Stripe Background from the Silhouette Store. I glued the cut file onto white cardstock. To give the layout some dimension, I used foam dots on some of the hearts so they stood up a bit,
 
Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts Trend die cut background close-up
 
 
2. Next, I cut out various sized hearts using more patterned paper from the Scrumptious collection. I arranged them in the middle of the page, making sure to mix up patterns and sizes as much as possible.
 
3. Once the hearts were placed, I added my photo in the middle, and embellished with enamel stars and wood veneer hearts.

4, Finally, I added my title using stickers and the word "sweet" die-cut from the fabulous gold foil paper! 
 
This layout was so simple and quick to make, but the die-cut background and hearts make it look more involved than it was! I love how die-cuts can really enhance your layouts and make them even more special, Thanks for joining me!
