Happy New Year and A Look Back!

Happy New Year!

I’m popping in to share some of my favorite projects from 2015!

JustTyra 2015 Project Collage

a HUGE Thank you to DieNamities, Blitsy, Craftwell, Chickaniddy, The Silhouette Challenge Team and Clique Kits for giving me the opportunity to create such lovely projects!

At the time of this writing, I’m enjoying the last of the weekend before we are back to our normal schedule tomorrow and planning more crafty adventures for 2016!

Sending you off with crafty wishes and washi tape dreams,

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!

Clique Kits August Pep Rally

Clique Kits is having the Pep Rally Today!

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!
