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.

Chickaniddy Crafts April Planner Spread Full by Carson RiuttaHello again lovelies! I'm back today to share with you my monthly planner makeover. Each month, in my planner, I create a spread for my month at a glance calendar. This is the first page I will turn to every time I open my planner and it's so fun to be greeted by such an explosion of texture and color. It certainly makes the mundane task of scheduling that much more enjoyable.

Chickaniddy Crafts April Planner Spread Closeup Flower by Carson RiuttaI wanted this month to mirror all the goodness that was happening around me in nature, lots of color and florals. With that in mind, I took these steps to complete this vibrant spread.

1. I started by trimming some mixed media paper to the right size for my A5 planner (8.5 x 5.5 inches).

2. I chose my colors and watercolored the background with abandon. There are no rules here, just play and have fun.

3. I chose a floral cut file from my growing collection, resized it in the Silhouette software and then cut it twice from the Chickaniddy "Together is Better" paper.

Chickaniddy Crafts April Planner Spread Bookmark by Carson Riutta

4. I ran the page through my sewing machine and stitched just the leaves to the background paper.

5. At this point I thought the page needed a little more peachy pink so I grabbed some coral spray and started flicking some color into the corners.

6. Now that the background was complete, the fun of embellishing the page began. I used all the gorgeous Chickaniddy supplies pictured below and really went to town, stamping and layering. You may have seen those flower brads on my last post, I just couldn't stop making them!

7. Because the left side of the spread was so vibrant, I thought I would keep the calendar side uncluttered and ready to work. I used letter stickers from both the Twirly Girly and Date Night collections as well as the countdown stamp set from the Jolly Good collection to complete my calendar.

Chickaniddy Crafts April Planner Makeover Bookmark Stamping by Carson Riutta8. No planner is complete without a bookmark and I decided to make mine for the month from a Date Night journaling card. You can see how I repeatedly stamped with the HAPPY stamp from Jolly Good to create my own patterned background.

And that's exactly how this spread makes me feel every time I open my planner, just plain happy!

I hope your month is happy and productive as well!

Hello, it's Amy here with a card that focuses on flowers!  I'm like most crafters and love working with blooms.  They are perfect for any season, especially for spring time cards! 
 
Amy Tsuruta Chickaniddy Crafts Cards W/Flowers
 
TIP:  Incorporate the contrasting borders of 12x12 paper
 
As a cardmaker, I tend to gravitate towards the 6x6 paper pads, but do love 12x12 sheets too.  I work to get more out of a sheet of paper by using the border trim that 12x12's have.  Who doesn't love polka dots?!
 
Even though the base panel has a subtle pattern to it, I decided to add a bit more texture to my card by using a stencil and light modeling paste.
 
spiffy tags
Date Night - Spiffy Tags
 
I love the large print of 12x12 paper.  It makes it a snap to fussy cut shapes, like these blooms:
 
awesome blossom
Date Night - Awesome Blossom
 
The center bloom has been adhered to the card using foam adhesive giving the design a bit of interest.
 
To add a bit of rustic charm to my card, I added some twine.

 

Amy Tsuruta Chickaniddy Crafts Cards W/Flowers 2
 
TIP:  By hole punching semi-circles to your card, it will help anchor twine.
 
I used a sentiment strip as a tag and threaded the twine through the top.

I think that the twine is a nice touch with the picnic basket.

Heyyie dear friends! Here's sharing my take on a card inspired by the spring colours and blooms!:D 

Cassandra Chen Chickaniddy Crafts Spring Flower Card 

Supplies: Twirly Girly Collection- Patterned Papers: Party Dress (TG14OS06), Piggy Tails (TG14OS12), Twirly Girly Sticker Sheet (TG14EB02), Date Night Collection- Illustration Stickers (DN14EB02)

 Cassandra Chen Chickaniddy Crafts Spring Flower Card2

Firstly, I created the background using the technique of random ink splatters, distress stains and adding confetti to the card. 

Secondly, to create the flower bouquet, I used a small piece of kraft wrapping paper and netting to create the bouquet effect, then layered the flowers from the Twirly Girly and Date Night collection sticker sheet.

Thirdly, finishing it up with a small twine at the bottom of the bouquet and adding embellishments to it.

Hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed making this card!

 Hi there! Leigh here to share a card that I made using one of my very favourite elements to include on a card: flowers. And my favourite way to add flowers to my cards is to stamp them. So I pulled out my Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night Clear Stamps and used the fabulous blooms and leaf images that are featured in this set.

Date night Stamps
 
 
Here's my card:
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Stamped Flower Card
 
1. I started by trimming some white cardstock to 4x5.25" and stamping my flowers in sweet blush,and berry sorbet inks.
2. I stamped the flowers onto some post-it notes, trimmed them out with some scissors and used them as masks to stamp the coral flower and the leaves.
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Stamped Flower Card close-up
3. I stamped the leaves near the bottom of my panel as well. 
4. I diecut a piece of the 12x12 Itty Bitty Ballerina patterned paper & the  Mini Sticker Tag with a banner diecut and adhered them to my card. 
5. I stamped two flowers onto another piece of white cardstock and trimmed them  out by hand before adding them to my card.

Thanks for looking!
 

 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:
 
Pinterest Image
 
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.

It's awesome that anything can be interpreted into a layout, and this pin was the perfect starting point for a page that I absolutely love. How would you interpret the pin? Thanks for joining me today and happy creating!

 

Hi Crafty Friends! This is Tyra and I'm here to share with you a card where I used flowers to the max! First, here is my supply list, all from Chickaniddy's Twirly Girly Collection:

Twirly-girly-06-Party-Dress

Twirly-Girly-Alpha-Stickers

Twirly-Girly-Sticker-Sheet-350x350

Twirly-Girly-Enamel-Hearts-350x350-2

Twirly-Girly-03-Tea-Party

Supply List: Twirly Girly - Tea Party/TG14OS03, Party Dress/TG14OS06, Alpha Stickers/TG14EB01, Sticker Sheet/TG14EB02

My process for pulling this card together included:

  1. Cutting a card stock base to 4.25 x 5.5 inches
  2. Cutting a striped patterned paper panel to 4.25 by 5.5 inches to cover the card stock base
  3. Cutting two smaller panels and layering. I used foam adhesive to "pop up" the last panel.
  4. Add enamel and sticker embellishments.
  5. Enjoy!

Tip: The key to layering different patterned papers and achieving a cohesive effect involves sticking to a similar color palette. It's the main reason I love playing with collections! Chickaniddy's collections are all extensive, each offering patterned paper in 12x12 and 6x6 sizes, stickers, and enamel embellishments.

Chickaniddy Crafts Best Ever Flower Card by Carson RiuttaHello again fellow Chickaniddy fans. It's Carson here today to share a spring floral card with you. Not only is this card "springy" because of its flowers, but it's also because I assembled this card while doing a little "spring" cleaning in my craft room. You may remember that watercolor background from a card I posted last month, and the vellum on those flower brads was left over from some experiments I conducted for last months vellum post. Don't worry, I didn't disassemble last month's watercolor card, I had made two backgrounds and only used one. I just love sitting down to a messy desk and creating something beautiful from the mess.

Chickaniddy Crafts Best Ever Flower Card Closeup by Carson Riutta The assembly of this card was pretty straightforward and needs little explanation, (if you're interested in recreating the watercolor background you can find the tutorial here). It came together pretty quickly using all the lovely Twirly Girly supplies pictured below.

Chickaniddy Crafts Best Ever Flower Card Chickaniddy Supplies by Carson RiuttaChickaniddy Supplies: TG14EB02 - Twirly Girly Sticker Sheet, TG14EB04 - Twirly Girly Mini Sticker Tags, TG14EB06 - Twirly Girly Brads, jg14st01 - Jolly Good Mini Countdown Clear Stamps

However, I do want to show you how to assemble the flower brads I used for embellishment. With the right supplies, these are quick and easy and such a great way to add dimension to your cards. You'll need some variation of everything you see below. Instead of the vellum, you could use any coordinating paper and instead of the heart punch, you could use a flower, leaf or balloon punch.

Chickaniddy Crafts Vellum Flower Brads Supplies by Carson Riutta

1. Punch enough hearts from your vellum and begin applying them to your foam dot in a circular pattern.

Chickaniddy Crafts Vellum Flower Brads Step 1 by Carson Riutta

2. If you would like to make a fuller flower with more petals, you can always apply a dab of glue at this point and repeat step one, adding another layer of petals.

Chickaniddy Crafts Vellum Flower Brads Step 2 by Carson Riutta

3. Prep your brad by clipping off the fasteners from the back with a decent tool. This is not a job for your scissors.

Chickaniddy Crafts Vellum Flower Brads Step 3 by Carson Riutta

4. Apply a good amount of glue to the top of the flower.

Chickaniddy Crafts Vellum Flower Brads Step 4 by Carson Riutta

5. Affix your brad on top of the glue and let it dry.

Chickaniddy Crafts Vellum Flower Brads Step 5 by Carson RiuttaThere you have it, a quick and easy embellishment to add a touch of spring to all your crafting endeavors. Take care.
