Hey there!  It's Missy here today.  Have you had a chance to create with the beautiful new Yippee collection yet?  It's full of fun Spring colors and patterns.  I knew right away this photo would be perfect with these papers.  The blues and oranges really compliment each other.

Here's how I made this fun layout:

1.  I knew I wanted to start with this beautiful wood grain paper as my background.  It's called Picnic Party.  I chose a few patterned papers and cut them into various sized strips and adhered them to the background.  I added some white gesso over them and some modeling paste through a lined stencil.  I then came in with some gelatos to give a watercolor effect.

2.  After my mixed media was dry, I adhered my photo and layers behind it.  I added machine stitching and then chose which embellishments I wanted to add in.  I used several of the enamel shapes and even fussy cut some pieces from patterned papers.

Aren't these enamel words and shapes so fun and cute?

3.  I added in some tangled thread in various parts of the layout for more interest and texture and some ink splatters.

Here's one more look at some of the fun embellishments and stitching.  I just love all of these fun colors together!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!


Hello there Chickaniddy fans! I was lucky enough to represent Chickaniddy at the CHA Mega Show this January, and when I saw the new collections, I was blown away. Both Yipee and 365 are perfect, everyday collections that you can use for a variety of projects, in fantastic colors and patterns, accented with exciting embellishments!

Today I'd like to share a bright & cheerful layout I created using the new Yippee collection.

Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Yippee Layout
Supplies: Yippee Collection- Pleasantly Surprised paper (YP15OS06), XOXO paper (YP15OS03), Festivities paper (YP15OS09), Here's The Story paper (YP15OS07), enamel words (YP15EB03), enamel shapes (YP15EB04), brads (YP15EB05), clear stamps (YP15ST01) 
Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Yippee Layout 2
With a few pieces of patterned paper, a bit of stamping and hand stitching, this layout was quite simple to pull together. Here's how it all came together: 

1) Using the "Pleasantly Surprised" paper as the background, layer a 4"x6" photo, white cardstock, "Festivities" striped paper, and "XOXO" paper and adhere to the bottom left corner of the ledger.

2) Cut the "Happy" strip from the "Hip Hip Hooray" paper and the "Yippee" manufacturer's strip from the "Here's the Story" paper and adhere at the top of the ledger lines, just below the word "title". Cut the banner grouping from the "Here's the Story" card and adhere below the "Happy" strip, using dimensional adhesive at the bottom. Stamp an 'e' from the Yippee clear stamps onto the largest banner and add a punched heart from the "Festivities" paper, as well as an enamel triangle from the Yippee enamel words set.

3) Journal on the green journaling tag from the "Hip Hip Hooray" paper. Cut a small ticket from the "Festivities" paper and staple to the journaling tag. Add enamel triangles and an enamel butterfly to the card & adhere to the bottom left corner of the photo.

4) Cut the "happy" tag from the "Here's the Story" paper. Using a basic backstitch, hand stitch the word "happy" on the tag. Add a white Yippee mini brad to the top and adhere at the bottom right corner of the photo. Stamp two large and one small button from the Yippee clear stamps onto white cardstock and cut out. Punch holes in the larger buttons and thread embroidery thread through the holes, tying in a knot. Adhere around the "happy' tag.

5) Adhere an enamel butterfly on the "happy" tag and two more butterflies flying up toward the top right corner of the layout. Stamp "girl" on the right side of your photo mat and top with the "happy" enamel word. Add three enamel triangles to the title, pointing towards the photo.

Hello, it’s Tyra and I here playing with Chickaniddy’s Yippee Collection and sharing a few of my tips for easy card making.  Use these guidelines to create beautiful cards!

Yippe Cards Ingredients Chickaniddy Tyra Babington

1. Cut a card base to 4.25 x 5.5 inches*.

2. Cut card layers to various sizes, including 4 x 5, 3.5 x 4.5 and 3 x 3 inches.

3. Layer panels on top of card base.  Consider adding interest by using foam adhesive to "pop up" panels or tilting panels slightly to the left or right to add movement.

4. Add embellishments and ready made sentiments from the Yippee collection to complete your card. 

*all sizes shown are width x height

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 Here's the Story paper. Add it the top of the striped yellow paper. 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.

Carson Riutta Chickaniddy Crafts Yippee Album 1

Hello again, my Chickaniddy friends! I'm back today to share a mini album I made using a handful of pictures from our early spring and the amazing new Yippee Collection! This collection is perfect for documenting your spring and summer with all its soft color palette and nature inspired bits and bobs. I absolutely love this one!

Carson Riutta Chickaniddy Crafts Yippee Album 2

This mini was a snap to put together and at only 6 pages in length it is definitely doable within one sitting. I envision as a perfect little gift for a faraway grandma or auntie. Here is how I assembled it.

1. I cut one 8.5x11 piece of white cardstock into four equal pieces, measuring 4.25x5.5. I used these as the base for each page.
2. I chose the woodgrain as my cover paper and cut two pieces from the 6x6 paper pack down to 4.25x5.5.
3. I chose my diecuts and labels for the cover, layed down the enamel Hello, stamped the title spring and then layered them all on the cover. I used foam tape to adhere the spring label.

Carson Riutta Chickaniddy Crafts Yippee Album 3

4. I machine stitched along the top and bottom of the label cluster.
5. I then added and enamel butterfly and stamped 2 smaller butterflies in the same blue ink as the title.
6. I then adhered the whole piece to one piece of the white card stock.
Carson Riutta Chickaniddy Crafts Yippee Album 4
7. I repeated these steps in much the same way for all of the remaining pages.
8. I picked my base papers and my picture, chose the labels and diecuts to layer, machine stitched, adhered my enamel elements and then added the finished piece to one side of the white cardstock.
9. Once the book was complete, I punched a hole in the appropriate corner and bound it together with a key ring.

Carson Riutta Chickaniddy Crafts Yippee Album 5

I love documenting spring as it's my favorite season, and if you're anything like me, you will definitely want to get your hands on this collection. Thank you so much for reading today! Happy Crafting!

Chickaniddy Crafts winter CHA 2015 booth (1)

What a blast we had at CHA and I have to say that we enjoyed every minute! Meeting so many new friends and the amazing support in which we received was so heartwarming. From the moment the doors opened on Saturday we were slammed and tried to keep up with it all until Monday. By Tuesday many people went home and it was nice to have a calmer day.

Chickaniddy Crafts winter CHA 2015 booth (4)

I think the best part was how fast our booth came together. Last year it took forever and this year we had a system and get it all done in 1 1/2 days. When all the decor was in place I finished the look with fresh flowers, mainly because they smell so good and I love the extra pop of color. One funny thing that took place was our catalog for the show could be camouflaged in our darling Meghann's shirt. We all had a good laugh about it.
