Clean and Simple Celebration Cards

How are you? I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday!  I’m popping in to share a quick technique for creating clean and simple cards similar to  this one I created as featured on Blitsy’s Blog this week:

Check out the video HERE. While you’re there, please comment and let me know what you think? This card comes together so quickly, especially with the roller stamp I discovered from Plus.   Take care and thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra

I mentioned last week that me and my forever plus one were going to the theatre last weekend to see the Great Gatsby.  It was excellent!  This is a small scale reproduction of the entire set:

Craftwell’s eBrush takes blending to an entirely different level!  After a few test runs, almost airbrushing myself and my (white) desk, I became quite comfortable handling the eBrush.

Don’t forget about the #fallforebrush promo happening this month!

Notre Dame Football has a bye this week so I think we are going to emerge from the madness that is college football and get out of the house while the weather is nice this weekend.  Me and my forever & always plus one are going to the theatre this weekend (oh so fancy) to see the Great Gatsby.  Take care, smile and enjoy your weekend.

Clique Kits October Pep Rally

Clique Kits is having the Pep Rally Today!

The challenge:  Anything goes!

The Kit: Funfetti

Clique Kits Funfetti

What a beautiful, amazing kit full of bright papers, alphas and sentiments that make my heart smile!  I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and create something for my little girl.  Although she’s elementary age, learning this year to read, count (to 1000 +) and make friends at her new school, I noticed she is really hard on herself, focusing on the things she got incorrect (versus celebrating her wins), or friends she didn’t make and worries about tomorrow.  I’ve finally realized that she is just a miniature version of me, with kid-sized challenges mirroring my adult-sized ones.

CK Oct Blog Share

This 12 x 12 layout features PinkFresh Studio’s Happy Things – Happy Words/Rustic Words sentiments layered with patterned papers and coordinating puffy stickers.  I will place this layout in a frame and hang on her wall.  This layout is just as much for me as it is for her.  I’ll probably add a picture of us in the center as a reminder that I’ll always be there to support her, reminding her (and myself) to smile, laugh, love and be yourself.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop! Sending you off with crafty wishes and washi tape dreams! Hugs! Tyra 🙂

Designing with Clique Kits

This weekend I’m on the Clique Kits Blog, sharing my love of all the different types of adhesives available for paper crafting! Here is sneak at one of my projects:

JustTyra_CliqueKits_Happy_Card_Tyra Babington_1_edited-1

 

Interestingly enough I used three different types of adhesive to create this card (adhesive to the max!):

  • My Scotch ATG Tape Glider Adhesive Applicator  worked perfectly for adhering the blue polka dot panel to the card base
  • Tombow’s  3D Foam Tabs popped out the two smaller paper panels
  • Inkssentials Glossy Accents for the sequins!
  • Find pretty paper kits at  Clique Kits (TYRA10 gets you 10%)
  • Find all the adhesive at Blitsy.  (You can use Big Box Competitor Discounts, yeah the 40% off ones)

 

AAAND the full reveal can be found here!
