Design Times, October 2015

Happy Friday!

Ready for the weekend?  My weekend started a little early! One of my sisters is on a “Midwest Nostalgia” tour (she’s visiting family) and made a pit stop at our house!  She’s already gone and we miss her so!  My hubs, kiddos and I have plans visit to a pumpkin patch, do a little grilling, and watch a little football and baseball.

As for me — well you know that I’m going to fit a little crafting in this weekend. Here’s what’s up:

Design Times October 2015

  1. Did you know that Blitsy has redesigned their site? They’ve added a color (yellow!), but more importantly, have made enhancements to their “My Account” page as well as the Instructional Video and Blog pages.
  2. I’ve been invited back to the Craftwell Design Team! This month Craftwell wants you to #fallforebrush this October! (what a fun play on words).  For all the contest deets, click HERE. As part of my second term, I received this mysterious little machine last week and I can’t wait to use it.  The ebrush’s claim to fame is the ability to use any marker to create spray art. I’ll share my creations on Periscope!
  3. Speaking of Periscope, this super slow video producer has dreams of becoming a Periscope Princess. Periscope is the latest social media tool to connect LIVE with others sharing the same interests.  While you can watch scopes on your computer desktop, I’m super obsessed with watching live broadcasts from my phone so I can send billions o’ hearts to my fellow crafty broadcasters.  I added a periscope button to my blog in the side bar.  when it’s red I’m live! Watch me, watch me! WHAT! I also decided to open my Periscope @craftswag channel for crafty reviews.
  4. I just received my Clique Kit!! I’m unboxing this baby on Periscope! Catch me there!

I’m signing off & sending you Crafty Wishes and Washi Tape Dreams!

Excuse me while I dial the year 1998 and request permission to use the word “bling-bling” because that’s what this card is all about! Enough of my silliness — check out the full reveal here 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra

Designing with Blitsy

Happy Friday!

Let’s talk about Blitsy.

Did you know that Blitsy accepts Big Box Store Coupons! *faints* Check out the details here.

I’m enjoying the Free Classes Blitsy is now offering..I’m loving the garland, this jewelry tray and this vintage card.  Oodles of crafty goodness and supplies all in one place.  And there’s one more thing. (I almost don’t want you to even click that one last thing)

I’m sharing over on Blitsy super quick and easy ideas for creating cards with 6 x 6 patterned paper and ready made embellishments.  Here is a sneak:

Clique Kits August Pep Rally

The challenge:  Anything goes!

I’m using beautiful papers and embellies from August’s Kit: Ambrosia and I made cards cut to an adorable size of 3.5 by 5.5 inches. I don’t know what it is about that size that makes a card enter into “cute status.”

Paradise Greeting Card_JustTyra Aug2015

The Ambrosia kit is full of delightful images of fruit and island like colors! I promise you that each and every time I took out this kit, I needed to go get fruit to eat or something to drink because it actually looks delicious (no kidding).  Anyway, thank you for humoring me for a bit! On to the next!
