Hello!  It's Amy here with you today sharing a fun wedding favor project.  I'm so in love with the Chickaniddy Crafts Jolly Good Collection!  It is filled with fun colors and patterns:

Amy Tsuruta Chickaniddy Crafts Wedding Favors
I decided to alter a couple of squares of Goat's Milk Soap.  I'm all for practical gifts, bonus points for usable gifts.
Amy Tsuruta Chickaniddy Crafts Wedding Favor 1
supply list:  jolly good - sugar cookie/jg14os02,  tis the season/jg14os11  embellishments - illustration stickers/jg14eb01
This particular soap is "all natural" and I knew that I wanted to have one of them slightly exposed to show the natural color and no fragrance characteristics.  The Jolly Good - Sugar Cookies belly band is a perfect backdrop for any of the Jolly Good embellishments.

I decided to use the large floral spray sticker and follow it up with a label from the Jolly Good - Tis the Season sheet.

Hello, Chickaniddy fans! It’s February, the month of love, and today I’d like to share a layout a bit on the romantic side of the spectrum, which documents a photo taken on my wedding day.

Once I decided on my design, using an oversized photo mat and a diagonal line of embellishment, I chose to add some texture to my background with a stencil and molding paste. This technique is so easy to achieve and I’d love to show you how to do it.
Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Oh Happy Day Layout technique


Choose a stencil (TIP: You can also make your own stencil with a heavy cardstock and a punch or a die-cut machine, so the possibilities are endless!) With some kind of scraping tool (I use a plastic palette knife, but you can also use an old credit/gift card) put a glob of molding paste onto your knife edge. (TIP: You can put a bit of the paste on a palette/plate and add a few drops of mist to color the paste!) Run the edge over the stencil and add more paste when the depth is getting too thin.
Allow the paste to dry. I usually do this before I go to bed so that I’m not tempted to touch my project until it is dry. After the paste has dried on your project, you can dry-brush a metallic gold paint on top using a small paintbrush, as I did on my layout today.

Once texture was added with the embossing paste, here’s how I finished my layout:
1. Create a photo mat with three different patterned papers. On the top layer, punch or die-cut three hearts out on the left side and back with a different patterned paper. Distress the edges. Mount a 4”x6” photo onto white cardstock and adhere to the right side of your photo mat. Add letter stickers, tag brad and mini banner stickers into the center of your die-cut hearts. Tuck flower and tab stickers between the layers and adhere to the page with the journaling card in the bottom right corner.
2. On a diagonal from the bottom left to upper right of the layout, add a spattering of sticker and brad embellishments.
3. Adhere two triangle-shaped pieces of patterned paper, one with a punched edge to the bottom right corner. Top with stickers and add the date.

Thanks for stopping by and if you haven't already tried using molding paste with a stencil, I hope you try a new technique today!


Hello! It's Kathy Martin here to share a card with you using Chickaniddy's gorgeous foil paper. To give wedding cards and stationery an extra touch of glamour you can run your foil paper through an embossing folder or impression plate to make it look like a fancy metal accent! 
Supplies: Silver Foil Paper (CN14SP002) Paper (DN140S05, DN140S06) Stickers (DN14EB02) Enamel Hearts (DN14EB07) Clear Stamps (DN14ST01)
Chickaniddy's foil paper works beautifully with embossing folders, showing off every detail! 
I have quite a few folders that I've forgotten about until recently...time to dust 'em off and put them to good use!
Additional card accents include a pretty white bow and dazzling 10 karat diamond ring! 😉
Easily turn this save the date design into a wedding congratulations card just by changing the sentiment. So many options! Happy crafting! 

Today, I have a wedding card to share that I created using some Chickaniddy Crafts products.

Supplies: 12x12 Gold Foil Paper (CN14SP001); Twirly Girly Paper (TG14OS03, TG14OS07), Date Night Clear Stamps (DN14ST01)

I started with some white card stock as my base. I cut a piece of Tea Party patterned paper to layer over top. Then, I added a strip of white card stock and lined it up with the stripes in the patterned paper. I cut some thin strips of the gorgeous Goldie Lox Foil Paper and adhered them to my card. I die cut the "forever" from the gold foil paper as well, and adhered it, along with a sentiment strip from the This And That patterned paper.
Then, I had some fun heat embossing the stamped flowers and leaves in white on the gold foil paper. I cut these out by hand and adhered them to my card. I just love how they turned out!

Tip: The gold foil paper is perfect for die cutting! I like to put some sheet adhesive to the back of the foil paper before die cutting it. Then, once it's die cut, all I have to do is peel it off and stick it to my card!
Thanks for looking!


Hello there!  Missy here with you today to share a layout focusing on two things:  Weddings and Shiny Silver Foil Paper!  I was excited to get to create a wedding layout this month.  My husband and I were married in 2000, and I hadn't started scrapbooking yet.  It was fun to dig into my wedding photos and pull out this fun one of us about to drive away in the limo after our reception 🙂

I used mostly goodies from the Date Night collection.  I think my favorite parts are the shiny silver foil and that cute diamond ring sticker!  I love creating layers and textures on my pages, so I did some stamping, watercolors and modeling paste to jazz up my background a bit.  I used some of the awesome silver foil paper as part of my layers and for all the little hearts flying around.  The foil paper punches like a dream and cuts in a die-cut machine perfectly.

Here you can really see the shine from the foil.  I love the pops of brightness it gives throughout the layout.

I think these butterfly stickers added the perfect touch to this part of the page...they make me think of flying free, and that's what my "new" husband and I were about to do after getting married 🙂

There's that adorable diamond ring...perfect for a wedding layout 🙂  You can also see more of the modeling paste and stamping here as well as the layering.

I hope this inspires you to dig out some older photos and scrap them.  Our wedding photos weren't digital, so I actually just took a photo of the actual photo and edited it.  I like that it doesn't look perfect.  But the memory WAS perfect, and that's what counts.

I also hope this inspires you to give the shiny foil paper a chance.  I promise you will LOVE it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Do you love gold as much as I do right now? If you do... you are going to LOVE what our Amanda Coleman made for today's post. It's so pretty and could be used for wedding favors or a really special birthday gift. Amanda said this:

"When I first held a piece of gold foil paper from Chickaniddy Crafts I just about fell out of my seat.  It is the perfect weight  for die cutting and looks like real gold. I knew the gold foil paper would make fabulous flowers, so I put a few together and then waited for an idea to come together.  I ended up pairing it with burlap to make a trendy wedding favor.  To make the bag, I stitched together a couple pieces of burlap.  Pretty easy".

Supplies: Goldie Lox CN14SP001, Twirly Girly 6x6 pad TG14PO01, Tea Party Twirly Girly TG14OS03; Flower and leaf die (Avery Elle); Brad (American Crafts); Gold pen (Faber Castell); Burlap; Various ribbons


"To make the entire flower embellishment, I die cut and assembled the flower and attached the die cut leaves.  I wrote the sentiment on a strip of paper and combined it with several coordinating strips of ribbon.  I attached everything with a regular ol' staple and adhered it to the back of the flower".


"I secured the individual petals of the flower together with a rhinestone brad.  To add dimension to the flower, I gently curled back the petals with a pair of craft tweezers. I chose the sentiment for richer or poorer because I thought it summed up the contrast between the burlap and gold. Have a great day! Amanda"


Umm... isn't this so pretty? Thanks Amanda for out doing yourself once again. I think we should officially start calling her AMANDA THE AMAZING! What do you all think?!
