Crafter Spotlight

Happy Sunday and Pam with you for another "In the Spotlight". We are excited to featured Mary-Ann Maldonado back in October and you can read more about her here! Today she is sharing two more fantastic layouts with us! She shares two pages using the Scrumptious Collection and I know you are going to enjoy these and the designs she created.

Mary-Ann Maldonado Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Layout 3

Yard Work

"Seems like everywhere you look, people are designing with shapes.  I decided to try my hand at designing a layout with circles.  I used large and small punches to edit the shape of my pictures and papers for this spread.  Using small bits and pieces from the Scrumptious line, this fall yard clean up layout came together rather quickly."

Grateful

"When I saw this free printable from Paper Issues, I knew I wanted to blow it up as large as I could.  It became the focus of my layout.  Using the Scrumptious line on this layout was a perfect fit for the green in Nov.  I bordered the printable with the stripped and ombre papers.  Cut my leaves and title from the remaining ombre paper.  I then tucked the delicate flowers and tabs behind my photo to help the black and white picture stand out.  Clumping the perfect words in the corner help convey the message of my layout."

 

Thanks Mary-Ann for sharing your pages with us!!!

Now it's your (the reader's) turn. Do you want to be in the spotlight? If so upload your projects to our facebook page for a chance to be spotted and featured.

Hello there, Chickaniddy fans! It's Meghann here with you today. Have you ever scrapbooked a subject that was emotional and hard for you to revisit? I'd like to share a layout with you today that was difficult for me to create, but I am so glad that I did.

Meghann Andrew Chickaniddy Crafts Star Burst Cutting File
 
Last December, while we were planning our Christmas, my daughter got very sick and was in the ICU for much of the month. I have not looked at the photos that I took from that experience all year, but when I saw the angel in the beautiful Jolly Good collection, I knew that this was the moment I should document- the day she started playing again, and the day I knew she was going to be alright.

Most of this layout is created with patterned paper and the amazing starburst cut file which we are giving away.

Supplies: Jolly Good- Holiday paper/jg14os08, Making Spirits Bright paper/jg14os07, Tis The Season paper/jg14os11, Caroling paper/jg14os03, Snow Play paper/jg14os09, Illustration Stickers/jg14eb01, Journal Tags/jg14eb03, Alpha Stickers/jg14eb02, Mini Sticker Banners/jg14eb05, Mini Sticker Sentiments/jg14eb07, Die Cut Tags/jg14eb04, Enamel Sticker Stars/jg14eb09, Mini Countdown Clear Stamps/jg14st01
Here is a preview and the link to the files in .svg and .studio (Silhouette) for this cut file I used on my page.
Chickaniddy Crafts Star Burst by Pam Callaghan smaller
LINKS:
 
Here's how I created this layout:
1) Size the cut file at 12"x12" and cut from silver glitter paper. 
2) In your Silhouette Studio software, 'release the compound path' of the cut file so that all of the individual pieces are separate. Open a new blank file and copy and paste an individual shape into your new file. Choose which paper you want to cut out of that shape and cut. 
If you've never separated a cut file before, I've created a quick video to show you the process: 
 
 
Do this a total of ten times until all of the interior shapes are filled in. Adhere the background outline and patterned paper pieces to a piece of blank cardstock.
3) Using dimensional adhesive, adhere the star from the die cut tags with the white back facing up in the center of the glitter background star. Top with an enamel sticker star. 
4) Cut 'believe' from the backside of the Caroling patterned paper and adhere below the star. Add a journal tag sticker to the right and top with alpha stickers. Cut a larger title from your die-cutting machine and adhere with dimensional adhesive below. Adhere the angel sticker from the illustration stickers with dimensional adhesive above your title.
5) Print your photo at 4"x6". Before adhering with dimensional adhesive, layer die-cut tag frames and banners, chipboard frames and other embellishment around the photos. Emboss 'I believe' in silver embossing powder using the Mini Countdown clear stamps onto a label sticker. Group with a banner sticker and tie both with bakers twine.
6) Journal on a card from the Making Spirits Bright paper, trim and tuck behind your photo. Add three additional enamel stars.

Creating this layout and journaling about this moment was a therapeutic exercise for me and I am so glad that I can now look back on a hard time in our lives and remember a beautiful moment that gave me hope. 
 
Happy holidays! 
 

Hi everyone! Elizabeth here with you today sharing a cute wintery layout of Alyssa and I in our winter hats! We love winter and all the chilly days here in Seattle!

 
I absolutely love The Jolly Good Collection for winter!  I just love the cute and bright colors that say happiness and this is one of my favorite times of the year! The elements in the collection work really well with these tags.
 

Heidi has created an adorable poster and some fun printable tags. Here is a preview of them.

Aren't those tags super cute! And look how well they go with The Jolly Good Collection so well! I printed them out on white cardstock and then cut each one out to use on my page. I wanted to layer and make a collage using them as well so I placed each one behind the striped paper and went to town!

Elizabeth Hellum Chickaniddy Crafts Winter Layout
 

1. Some of the tags as you can see, I tucked behind something and just use the design on them and hid the words or pictures. You can do this to add color and texture to your page even while using the same tags!

2. Once all of the tags were where I wanted them I adhered each one carefully while keeping them in their place. I did it this way because I wasn't really sure where I wanted them exactly so I didn't adhere them down until at the very last minute.

3. Once they were down, I added other elements to the page. The stickers, the twine, journaling, and finally the white mist to tie it all in!

Supplies:

Jolly Good Alpha Stickers (SKU: jg14eb02),  

Jolly Good Illustration Stickers (SKU: jg14eb01)

Jolly Good Making Spirits Brights (SKU: jg14os07)

Jolly Good Caroling (SKU: jg14os03) 

Jolly Good Mini Sticker Banners (SKU: jg14eb05) 

Jolly Good Sugar Cookies (SKU: jg14os02)

Thanks for spending some time with me and allowing me to show you something different you can do with these cute tags! Happy Holidays!

 

 

 

Hey there!  Missy here with you today.  I love getting into the Christmas spirit, and working with the beautiful and bright Jolly Good collection puts me in the holiday mood.  I love that this line is fun and whimsical, and these pictures of my sweet little girl in her pink Santa shirt coordinated perfectly!

Have you seen the FREE printable tags from the Jolly Good line yet?  I used four of them that I printed onto white cardstock.  They are super easy to print and use!

I used two in my top right cluster and I layered two to the right of my photos.

Missy Whidden Chickaniddy Crafts Printable Tags Layout

 

Supplies Used: Jolly Good Printable Tags, JG140S04 Sweater Weather, JG140S09 Snow Play, JG104S08 Holiday, JG140S07 Making Spirits Bright, JG14EB05 Banners, JG14EB06 Tags, JG14EB03 Journal Tags, JG14EB01 Sticker Sheet, JG14EB08 Mini Brads, JG14EB07 Sentiments, JG14ST01 Clear Stamps, Liquitex Gesso, Artist's Loft Watercolors, Faber Castell Gelatos, Crafter's Workshop Stencil, Colorbox Ink, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Craft Smart Ink, Prima Chalk Ink, Brother Sewing Machine, Coats Thread, Recollections Washi Tape, cord, cardstock, Silhouette Cameo, Black Sharpie Pen.

Here's how I went about creating this layout:

1.  I started with the Sweater Weather patterned paper.  I used the back side because it was pretty neutral.  I coated it with clear gesso.  I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and a blue gelato to create the blue circles.  I also used watercolors and a few other gelatos to create the colorful background.

Jolly Good

 

2.  I sorted through the patterned papers and chose a few based on color.  I cut them into long strips to give my photos a base.  I added a few layers behind my photos for some separation and then adhered them.

3.  Here, you can see how I next layered in the two printable tags and a few stickers from the 12x12 Sticker Sheet.  I added some stitching around the edges of the tags.  I decided to use the coordinating stamps as part of my title.  Using chalk inks, I stamped "December," and then hand cut it out.  I popped it up to give it some dimension.

Here's another angle of the layers.

4.  I couldn't resist using these adorable little diamond stickers from the Banners Mini Sticker Sheet.

I lightly inked up the edges and scattered them above and below my photos.  I also used the adorable little star stamp here and there.

Missy Whidden Chickaniddy Crafts Printable Tags Layout close-up 3

 

5.  I wanted to add something to my upper right corner, so I used two more of the printable tags layered on top of a few label stickers.  I added a little banner sticker and a pink brad.

These cute printable tags are really fun and easy to use.  They add fun pops of color to your layout, and they make great layering pieces.  There are lots more to choose from, too!

I hope this inspires you to give them a try on your Christmas projects!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Hello! I, Allie, am absolutely crazy about Pam's sketches! Her sketches are so creative and versatile, and this month's sketch is no exception!

Chickaniddy Crafts December Sketch by Pam Callaghan
 
I especially love the banner and circle in this sketch, and couldn't wait to make a layout using it! I used two of my favorite embellishments to make the circle: Mini Brads and Enamel Stars.
 
Jolly Good Enamel Stars
 
Jolly Good Brads
 
 
Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts December Layout Sketch
Chickaniddy Supplies Used: Paper (jg14os03, jg14os12, jg14os07, jg14os11, jg14os08, jg14os05), Stickers (jg14eb01, jg14eb06, jg14eb02), Die Cuts (jg14eb04), Mini Brads (jg14eb08), Enamel Stars (jg14eb09)
 
This layout was super easy to create!
 
1. I cut three strips of paper for the background like the sketch shows. I placed them at an angle because it is much easier than placing it perfectly even and straight! 
 
2. Next, I cut out the banner so it would be large enough to peek out from behind my photo. I used a few leftover bits and pieces I had of Jolly Good as background layers. 
 
3. Once I had my layers glued down and arranged, I traced a circle directly onto my layout (I used a salad bowl). I pierced holes as evenly as possible all around the circle, and added brads and stars.
 
Allie Stewart Chickaniddy Crafts December Layout Sketch close-up
 
4. Finally, I used a frame from the die-cut pack to highlight my title, and added flower stickers for easy embellishing! After the layout was finished, I added a few splatters of mist for good measure.

Crafter Spotlight

Hello all! It's Sunday and another day of Crafter Spotlight! Today we have a scrapbooker who really caught our eye with her two pages. She just has a knack for creating some really fun and creative pages. Her name is Cari and let's get to know her better!

Cari Orellana

Hello everyone, I'm Cari, I'm 26 years old, living with my husband and cat in Chile. I'm a part time translator and Spanish teacher for foreigners, It's a very fun job and it's given me the opportunity to meet people from all over the globe.
I've been a crafter my whole life, I learn how to embroidery and knitting very young and until some years ago crochet was my thing. It was in 2010 when I discovered Scrapbooking and haven't stopped since then. I love this hobby because it's fast, I don't need many time to finish a layout and because what you get is beautiful, the perfect "frame" for your photos.

"It Wasn't Logic, It Was Love" Layout

Cari Orellana Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight LayoutCari Orellana Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Layout close-up

"As far as I received Date Night I knew I wanted to use it with some of my wedding photos. For this layout I divided my page in two parts, one half with design and the second half on white. I cut some phrases - I love the " I say yes" one, so perfect for the occasion-, and a little of fussy cutting, I love how that flowers look, they are the perfect embellishment!"

 

"Just 1 Day" Layout

Cari Orellana Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Layout2Cari Orellana Chickaniddy Crafts Spotlight Layout2 close-up
"This photo is from the day before my wedding, that's why the name of it. I cut a cloudy background because that night was very cloudy and I thought it was going to rain next day - the worst nightmare for an outdoors wedding - But luckily nothing happened and my wedding day was a very sunny day. To fill the cloud I used papers from Date Night and I cut those little flags to embellish the clouds."
Thanks so much Cari for letting us put you in the spotlight!

Hi friends. It is Pam again with another page by our December Guest Designer, Paige Evans. If you haven't had a chance to check out her first layout, please follow this link! We are lucky to have her up on the blog again today with a really neat paper tearing technique!

Paige Evans Chickaniddy Crafts December Guest Designer Layout 2 Paige Evans Chickaniddy Crafts December Guest Designer Layout 2 close-up

JOLLY GOOD by Paige Evans

Description: It's been awhile since I've done the "torn paper" technique so I thought I'd give it a whirl here!

Journaling says: Every night in December we read a Christmas story and then eat a piece of chocolate from an advent calendar - it makes every night so fun!

How to: Tear patterned paper strips and adhere them across the top and bottom of a robin's egg blue cardstock base. Write with a white pen along the paper edge. Add a few epoxy stars over the paper strips. Place three photos in between the paper strips and embellish with stickers and die cuts. Splatter white paint around the page and stamp "merry christmas" with white paint above one of the photos.

Supplies: Patterned paper, epoxy stars, stickers, die cuts: Chickaniddy Crafts; Cardstock, adhesive: American Crafts; Pen: Uniball Signo; Paint: Americana

 

Thanks for being our guest designer this month, Paige!

Have a great day all!

Good morning! Erin here with a soft and pretty Christmas card using the Jolly Good collection. Pink is one of my favorite colors, and the soft pink in this collection works beautiful with the bolder holiday colors. I especially like pink paired with soft gray.

Erin Taylor Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card
 (Supplies used: Jolly Good 6x6 pad jg14pd01. Jolly Good Making Spirits Bright paper jg14pd07. Jolly Good Journal Tags jg14pd03. Jolly Good Illustration Stickers jg14pd01.)
 
The key when creating this card is to use both the deer cut apart from the Making Spirits Bright paper and the matching deer from the Illustration stickers. They are the exact same size, and by using foam adhesive, you can pop up the sticker deer over the gray paper. 
 
1. Trim pink star paper, from the 6x6 Jolly Good paper pad, to 4.25 x 5.5 inches and adhere to folded white card.
 
2. Layer light green sticker (Jolly Good Journal Tags), a small white doily, and gray Merry Christmas cut apart tag (Jolly Good Making Spirits Bright paper) on top of pink star paper. 
 
3. Apply foam adhesive to the back of the gray deer sticker from the Illustration Stickers and apply to card. Add red enamel dot.
 
4. Adhere white and pink buttons, twine, and gems
 
Here's a closer look at the bottom of the card. You can see the dimension that the foam tape adds to the cute little deer.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope my project has inspired you to create a pretty pink holiday card!

Hello, it's Amy here with a set of holiday cards.  I have the best intentions to work on my holiday cards throughout the year but I generally end up in a frenzy during the month of November.

One of my favorite papers in the Jolly Good collection is Sugar Cookies:

Jolly Good Sugar Cookies
 
I absolutely adore that shade of green!  I knew that I wanted to combine it with pink for the holidays.
 
Check out the Jolly Good - Caroling:

There's also the Jolly Good - Holiday:

I combined these papers and came up with this design:
 
 
Amy Tsuruta Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Cards
 
These were actually quite quick, no stitching or stamping.  The sentiments are stickers from the Jolly Good Collection:

Mini Tag Stickers Jolly Good
 
 
I was making it a personal goal of mine to design postal friendly cards.  
 
Amy Tsuruta Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Cards 2
 
The card size is 3.5 inches by 5.5 inches.  This has become one of my favorites because it packs a punch.  It also allows you to take some of the design off the edge.

Supply List:  Jolly Good:  Sugar Cookies/jg14os02, Caroling/jg14os03, Holiday/jg14os08; Jolly Good Embellishments:  Mini Sticker Sentiments/jg14eb07; Mini Sticker Tags/jg14eb06
 
Do you have a favorite holiday color combo that you like to work with?  Do you tend to design with traditional or non-traditional colors?
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope my card sets inspires you!
 
 
 
 
 
 

Hi there! Leigh here today with some fun Christmas cards that I made using Jolly Good products.

I find when I'm making Christmas cards that if I come up with a design I like, I try to stick with it to make several cards, but I like to change them up so they're not all the same. Usually I make two or three with the same design, but once I started playing with my Jolly Good products, I found I just couldn't stop at three.... and so I made six! LOL!

I started with some Jolly Good patterned paper & the illustration stickers sheet.

Illustration Stickers Jolly Good

I paired these with a rectangular die set that I have that die-cuts a scalloped rectangle and & stitched rectangle.

Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 1
 
1. I trimmed my Christmas Eve patterned paper to 4.25x5.5" to make my card base.
2. I die-cut my rectangles from card stock and adhered them to my card.
3. I added the adorable sticker from the illustration stickers sheet.
4. I stamped my sentiment (using the Mini Illustrated Clear Stamps) onto a die-cut banner, scored the ends and adhered it to my card. 
 
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 1 close-up
 
For my next card, I followed the same steps, but here, I changed up the patterned paper (I used Deck the Halls) and used the adorable reindeer sticker instead.
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 2
 
This time, I stamped my sentiment using the Mini Countdown Clear Stamps.
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 2 close-up
 
For my next card, I used another sticker, but instead of stamping, I used the Jolly Good Alpha Stickers along with a Mini Sticker Tag for my sentiment.
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card  3
 
After adhering my alpha stickers, I trimmed the one end off of the tag sticker and adhered it, overlapping slightly onto my word. The patterned paper for this card is from the 6x6 Jolly Good paper pad.
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 3 close-up
 
Then, I just had to use the adorable Santa sticker..... 
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 4
 
Once again, I used the Christmas Eve patterned paper, but this time I matted it on some red card stock. I skipped the scalloped edge frame on this card and adhered Santa using some dimensional adhesive to make him pop up. The sentiment is stamped using the Mini Illustrated Clear Stamps.
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 4 close-up
 
And lastly, I decided to use two of the journaling cards from the Holly Jolly patterned paper.
 
 
I framed the journaling card with card stock die-cuts and adhered it all to some Christmas Eve patterned paper. I selectively inked my sentiment (from the Mini Countdown Clear Stamps) in versa mark and heat embossed it in white. 
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 5
 
I added a button and twine to the bow to finish it off.
 
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 5 close-up
 
And I kept my last card super simple. I die-cut the scalloped frame from the Christmas Eve patterned paper and adhered it to some red card stock.
 
Leigh Penner Chickaniddy Crafts Christmas Card 6
 
Supplies: Jolly Good 6x6 pad (jg14pd01), 12x12 patterned paper (jg14os01, jg14os05,  jg14os06), clear stamps (jg14st01, jg14st02), Mini Sticker Tags (jg14eb06)

So you can see, I created six quick cards using the same design, but was able to make them all different by changing up a few elements.

Thanks for looking!

Crafter Spotlight

It's Sunday and time for another scrapbooker to be in the spotlight! Our artist on the blog today, Stacey Schafer, creates some really beautiful cards! We love the way she paper crafts. She will be sharing two cards with us, so get ready for some great card inspiration. First let's get to know Stacey.

Stacy 

"I'm a wife, mom of three, full-time special education teacher, scholastic bowl coach...and avid paper-crafter!  Even when I'm the most busy, I carve out a little time to get crafty...crafting is my "me time!"  I started scrapbooking in 2000 when my first baby was born, wanting to document every moment.  Then, once I attended a card class in 2007, I was hooked on making cards and other small gift items, too!  A bit later I started my own blog, Stacey's Stamping Stage, to share projects and through this I have met wonderful friends who share the same passion for paper-crafting!

When I begin working on a card or gift item, the first thing I reach for is patterned paper...don't know what I'd do without it!

I am excited to share a couple of cards I've created using the Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night Collection and Twirly Girly Collection."

 

 

"My Kind of Guy" Card

Chickaniddy Crafts Stacy Schafer Spotlight card

"For this first card, I wanted to create a masculine-themed card for my special guy!  I used the cityscape patterned paper as a background, the navy speckled patterned paper for the dog die cut and banner, the wood paneled patterned paper for the hydrant, bone charm and bit of margin layer, and phrasing patterned paper...all from Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night Collection."

 

Chickaniddy Crafts Stacey Schafer Spotlight card 2

"Birthday Wishes" Card

Chickaniddy Crafts Stacey Schafer Spotlight card 3

"For my second card, I went with an ultra feminine approach using Chickaniddy Crafts Twirly Girly!  I used several coordinating patterns from Twirly Girly for background, hand-cut banners, framing shapes and die cuts.  I adore the dotted/confetti-like patterns with soft and sweet florals in this collection!"

Chickaniddy Crafts Stacey Schafer Spotlight card 4

 

 

Thanks Stacey for sharing your talent and cards with us today!

Happy Friday all, Pam with you today on the blog. Christmas will be here soon.. so we are doing two giveaways today. I will also be sharing what I have done with my annual Christmas photo my family takes every year!

The first thing I will be sharing is a layout I created to fit this photo perfectly. One of my most favorite things about the Jolly Good collection is the colors. I just love that in addition to traditional colors of red, green, and white, this collection includes a soft blue, pink, orange, and grey. Here is the layout I created with the softer tones. Layout inspired by our December Guest Designer, Paige Evans.

Pam Callaghan Chickaniddy Crafts 2014 Snowflake layout

 

Supplies used: Chickaniddy Crafts Jolly Good papers: Caroling/ jg14os03, Holiday/ jg14os08, Sweater Weather/ jg14os04, Tis The Season/  jg14os11. Chickaniddy Embellishments: Enamel Stars/ jg14eb09, Illustration Stickers/ jg14eb01, Mini Sentiment Stickers/ jg14eb07, Mini Sticker Tags/ jg14eb06.

Here is how I created my page. I normally choose a ton of papers for each layout, but for this layout I just chose a few.  One of my favorite papers is the "B" side paper of the Caroling collection.  It has four quadrants that are just perfect for my page.

403x420xJolly-Good-12x12-Paper-03B-Caroling.jpg,q77d6dd.pagespeed.ic.HZJkoKk6Qp

First, I created my own snowflake image and I cut it out with my Silhouette. I was inspired by quilting and also some awesome graphic images online using triangles and snowflakes. You can achieve this look by picking out your own favorite snowflake and using that as a base. There are a bunch in the Silhouette Store. Next, I cut out three different sized triangles and used them on the snowflake.

After adding triangles and some stitching and embellishments, I was happy with the result of the quilted snowflake!

Onto the giveaways!
