It’s 2015!

Tyra Babington Clique Kits Dream Big Card v2_edited-1

Happy New Year (better late than never, right?). I’m sorry I’ve been gone for a bit! I had a lot of holiday time off and my family and I have been trying to get back into the swing of school, homework (in kindergarten — yes, they are busy these days!), snow days and work.  I also used my downtime  for goal setting and working with my husband on some big exciting family plans for later this year (I’ll share as soon as I am able, promise).

In the meantime I’m glad to get back into the swing of blogging!  Thank you so much for your patience! While you are here, I would love to share a few crafty updates:

  • Clique Kits Pep Rally happens on Wednesday, January 21st starting at 11 am Eastern.  Head on over to the blog to check it out!
  • Chickaniddy previewed some of their latest collections at CHA 2015 here. Check out the wintery cards I created using the Jolly Good Collection here.
  • Die-Namites is having an awesome Birthday Blog Hop happening now! Comment all this week as Die-Namites  will be randomly choosing One GRAND PRIZE winner of a $50 Gift Certificate and  Five ~ $10 Gift Certificates Winners.

I LOVE Coffee. THE END. I just finished a cup now and I’m going to reload before this post is finished!  In any case, let’s get to the cards I created, shall we?

I created the first two cards, using an oldie, but goodie, set from Market Street Stamps.  I love those stamps and I was so excited to use them here.  I also used paper and embellies from Kaisercraft and my ink is all Stampin’ Up!

Once the blog hop closes I will draw a random number from the comments (please leave your contact info) and send the lucky crafter something special from my crafty space! Take care and thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra

Update: Hey guys! The one and only Angelica Suarez just shared that the digital stamp version of Daily Grind (coffee cups and sentiments) are available on her site: http://www.angsuarez.com/shop. Yes!

Christmas in July with 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

I found a cute Christmas sticker sheet from Bella Blvd I wanted to create with so I played along with the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown — a challenge for all things Christmas! Yes.  This challenge provides a few different prompts to choose from.  The sticker challenge, of course, was perfect for me!

Here is what I created:

Christmas Tag Card JustTyra

 

I used my Silhouette to cut tags, panels and and the swirly circle using Bella Blvd (green patterned) and Simon Says Stamp (red & pink striped) paper to create a home for the coordinating sticker sentiments.  I added string and there you have it — a card and coordinating tag set.

So just for today — Merry Christmas! — and thanks for stopping by!
