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.
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.
