12-days-of-gift-wrapping Chickaniddy Crafts

IMG_0286 (Large)

Hello and welcome to our very first Christmas gathering on our Chickaniddy blog! To bring in the Christmas cheer we are celebrating 12 days of Gift Wrapping for Christmas. Over this next 12 days I will be sharing fun videos, free printables, and all my gift wrapping secrets.

Years ago I worked at a party store and to this day... it was one of my FAVORITE jobs. I blew up balloons and wrapped presents. Honestly I could have worked there forever! While working there I became quite good at wrapping presents and, as crazy as it sounds, there really is a right way to wrap a gift. So to kick off my first class I am sharing how to gift wrap with perfection. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them for you.

Thanks for stopping by

Hello, friends:) Savannah O'Gwynn here today! And I've created a special video for you:) 
August is a special month for birthdays in my family--- including my birthday:) So for my video, I've shared a start-to-finish birthday card using the the Chickaniddy Twirly Girly collection. I found lots of these donut images in my Chickaniddy stash... and I thought that they would be perfect for a sugary birthday card! LOL!

 I love these papers--- and I love love love that the edges of each of the Chickaniddy papers have a pretty design that can be used on your projects!

Hello, friends:) Savannah O'Gwynn here today, and I've created a special video for you today:) 

I'm sharing how I've created 2 cards for a wedding theme. The first card is a CAS Save the Date design and could be EASILY reproduced! The second card has a great design for either a wedding shower or for the special day itself. I've used the Chickaniddy Date Night collection for both cards.

Here's the video (****be sure to change your settings to HD before watching): 

 

Here are some tips for creating wedding themed cards/creations:

  •  For EASY reproducible cards- use a large die cut image with a sentiment
  • If you don't know the "colors" of the wedding, try mixing and matching several colors and designs together.
  • Make your cards for the wedding perfect for both the bride and the groom. It's best to create a more feminine card for the bridal shower:)

I really love these cards! My favorite part is that they match! That diamond ring die cut is PERFECT for both designs! ****And stay tuned because I will use it again on my project that will be posted on the 19th of this month! LOVE

I'm sharing how I mix and match patterned papers and embellishments from the Chickaniddy Twirly Girly and Date Night collections!

I love this card! One of my favorite things to do is mix and match collections! If you would like to try this technique, here are some tips:

  •  Get out all of your papers and embellishments from the collections, or look in a catalog or find these pieces online. This will help you get a feel for what you can use on your card, and it could help you find more products that you want to order:) 
  • When mixing and matching patterned papers, use only ONE patterned paper as the focus/main design. This main patterned paper should have a busy design or larger image. It should be bold. 
  • All of the other pieces of paper will be supporting this main patterned paper. Supporting patterned papers should be softer/muted colors, smaller designs (polka dots, stripes, solid colors).

I really think this  card is perfect for anyone! My favorite pieces of this card include the alpha stickers... and the way the two sentiment stickers match the coordinating papers/embellishments on the top/bottom (perfect placement!!).... and I love that sentiment with the Dance School patterned paper! I love everything about this card:)

Hello MONDAY and Hello Friends,

Today we have another special treat for you, but this time it's a VIDEO from our talented Friend... Jen Gallacher. It's a fun video, because she shares some really great close ups of the twirly Girly collection and her step by steps to make this beautiful layout.

Supplies: Twirly Girly Collection, Scallop Border Punch, Kraft Cardstock, Kraft Photo Corners , Twine

Jennifer Gallacher Chickaniddy Crafts Layout Twirly Girly 2

Here are a few of Jennifer's tip about the layout:

"I centered the 12x12" design of the foundation paper on white cardstock and then cut it out so the design would still be centered in the middle of my layout. By layering cut out pieces, patterned paper, and stickers, I created a feminine cluster of items that help draw attention to the photo. I focused on one color photo and then three additional black and white photos that help to tell the story. You can watch the start-to-finish scrapbook process video to see how I put this beautiful layout together".

Thanks Jen for the awesome video and playing with our goodies!
