Layout

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 Backwoods 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 9Apps APK, 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 Backwoods 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!

Hello friends, Pam here with a layout using the beautiful Yippee Collection! There are so many things to love about this collection: the colors, patterns, and embellishments. I created my page with a photo about my parents who celebrated 49 years of marriage this past year.

Pam Callaghan Chickaniddy Crafts Yippee

 

This is how to create my layout (or feel free to make it your own!):

1. Use the yellow striped paper from the 6"x 6" pad of the Yippee Collection and mat onto the left side of the page on the Yippee 12" by 12" Picnic Party wood grain paper.
2. Print off two 3.75" by 2.75" photos. Mat them on white cardstock and adhere them to the striped paper.
3. Measure how much space the left photo will overlap on the journaling strip. Type in text accordingly on computer software, print, and adhere to the layout.
4. Die cut various different sized butterflies from the 6"x6" collection pad. Layer each butterfly over each other. Put an Enamel Butterfly Shape on top of each butterfly. Use pop dots when adhering finished butterfly to page.
5. Cut out a pre-made sentiment from the Heres the Story paper. Add it the top of the striped yellow paper 9Apps APK. Add another to the right side of the layout as well from the Hip Hip Hooray paper.
6. Finish off layout by adding a few Circle Enamel Shapes and the Enamel Word "Love" to the page.

 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:

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.

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.

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!

Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts Easter Page
Patterned  Paper (TG14OS10, TG14OS12, TG14OS09, TG14OS02, TG14OS07, DN14OS01, DN14OS02), Stickers ( DN14EB01,TG14EB01, TG14EB04), Enamel Hearts (TG14EB07) 
Creating this layout was super easy!
 
1. I cut out 12 eggs using my Silhouette Cameo, then backed them with pastel papers from Twirly Girly and Date Night.
 
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!

Morning friends! It's time for another layout by our March Guest designer Lilith Eeckels. This her second layout she is sharing with us and this time she also made a video! So cool. You can learn more about her, here, and also see her first layout. I think you will love this video, so get ready for some craft inspiration.

Lilith Eeckles Chickaniddy Crafts Guest Designer Layout 2

"For my last project I wanted to use the Twirly Girly collection. The colours were a perfect fit for a couple of photos of me I had lying around of a several months. At home I am the only girl as I have 4 sons so the collection was a perfect fit to scrapbook me.

I went with a favourite design princple which is layering and the I added a horizontal flow element. I love the pink colours but it isn't too pink with the greys and yellows.

Thanks to Chickaniddy for having me as guest designer. I enjoyed working with the collections which are fabulous and make scrapbooking so easy."

Hello! Are you a word nerd? Do you love letters? Tessa Buys here, and if your answer is yes, I'm with you! I love the look of text, especially when it jazzes up my journaling on a layout. Today I am going to show you how to have some fun with your journaling while using up those darling word stickers that come in the Chickaniddy Crafts collections.

Tessa Buys Chickaniddy Crafts Sticker Trend
Twirly Girly - Mini Sticker Sentiments (TG14EB05), Mini Sticker Tags (TG14EB04), Brads (TG14EB06), Rosy Posy paper (TG14OS01), A Girl's Generation paper (TG14OS09), Birthday Girl (TG14OS02)

1. First of all, figure out what it is that you want to say. Take a look at the sticker sheet and choose several words that you would like to use.

Tessa Buys Chickaniddy Crafts Sticker Trend close-up

2. Write out your journaling on a separate piece of paper. You don't want to make a mistake directly on your layout. In place of a sticker, draw a rectangle about the same size as the sticker.

3. When you like the look of your journaling, transfer it to your layout, sticking as close as possible to your rough draft.

 
Tessa Buys Chickaniddy Crafts Sticker Trend close-up 2

When I journal this way, it helps me to keep a few things in mind.

1. Don't be afraid to cut phrases apart. I did just that with "eat cake". The original saying on the sticker is "let them eat cake". That didn't quite fit into my journaling, so I used my scissors to take care of that.

Tessa Buys Chickaniddy Crafts Sticker Trend close-up 3

2. If your handwriting isn't the same size as the sticker, consider allowing stickers to overlap so that your lines are consistent. Also, don't hesitate to allow a sticker to overlap your handwriting from line to line. For example, if a sticker covers up the lower part of a "y" or a "g", it usually doesn't affect the legibility of your handwriting.

Tessa Buys Chickaniddy Crafts Sticker Trend close-up 4

3. Don't be afraid to mix colors of stickers, but be wary of how many fonts you use. I love that the Chickaniddy Crafts word stickers are easy to read and easy to mix in with my handwriting.

I hope you've found some ideas for working with the word stickers. Enjoy mixing them into your journaling. 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!"

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.

Hello! Tessa Buys here with one of my favorite trends - metallics! I have loved Chickaniddy Crafts' foil paper ever since it was released in their debut collections, and I managed to hoard one last piece of Silver Surfer. When I sat down to scrapbook these photos of my daughter in a silver-foiled sweatshirt, I knew I wanted to incorporate the silver foil paper in a big way:

Tessa Buys Chickaniddy Crafts March Trends Metallics
Twirly Girly - Grandma's Quilt paper (TG14OS10), Sticker Sheet (TG14EB02); Silver Surfer paper (CN14SP002)

1. To recreate this look, use a die-cut machine to make your title out of Silver Surfer paper. The bigger, the shinier.

2. Using a craft knife, cut along the short sides of several triangles in the Grandma's Quilt patterned paper from the Twirly Girly collection. Gently roll back the triangles and secure with strong adhesive.

Tessa Buys Chickaniddy Crafts March Trends Metallics close-up 3

3. Fill the open space from the back side with more Silver Surfer paper.

Tessa Buys Chickaniddy Crafts March Trends Metallics close-up 4

4. For even more metallic shine, add silver sequins. I chose square sequins to mimic the squares of the patterned paper.

Whether your metallic shine peeks out from patterned paper or makes a bold statement as your title, it's sure to make an impact on your page. Thanks for visiting 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

 

Missy Whidden Chickaniddy Crafts March Trends Triangles close-up2

 

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.

Missy Whidden Chickaniddy Crafts March Trends Triangles close-up3

 

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!Roblox HackBigo Live Beans HackYUGIOH DUEL LINKS HACKPokemon Duel HackRoblox HackPixel Gun 3d HackGrowtopia HackClash Royale Hackmy cafe recipes stories hackMobile Legends HackMobile Strike Hack

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!
