Honor Society Challenge…Wild and Free

Hello It’s Tyra and today I will share some of what I made with my latest Clique Kits  Kit Haul . The theme is “Wild and Free” and so I thought I would create a few cards and add in a few feathers here and there.  Here goes!9457536_orig Happy Days Card Clique Kits August Release Just Tyra

For you card makers out there, this kit is packed with a ton of goodness to create cards to your heart’s desire.  Even the packaging is beautiful.  I created the middle feather from packaging used for the wood hearts.

In the second card I reused the gold polka dot washi tape from some of the embellishment packaging for my card.

Hello It’s Tyra and today I’m participating in the Clique Kits Honor Society July Blog Share! I enjoyed playing with the beautiful Allison Kreft papers and I managed to make a few more layouts and cards.  Let’s get to the pictures, shall we?

 

 

 

Notebook_Scrapbooking_JustTyraI did something a little different with this first layout.  I had a leather bound journal sitting around with several clear picture pockets. I created this journal entry and added a few embellishments. I love the way it looks and I will probably continue to journal this way when I have the chance.

A traditional layout, and then, of course…

Cards To Inspire…The Four Ls of Card Making

So, I wanted to share with you  some of the back story behind why I created this little class called the “Four Ls of Card Making Design.”

I created this course because there was a time I felt uninspired and not confident about what I was creating, but I kept creating.  I found that over time, the card designs I loved were ones that were born from heartfelt inspiration.  From my scribbles and notes, a class was born:

Four Ls Class Collage

 

So, if you find yourself in a creative rut, I encourage you to give this class a try.  This class is not about replicating anything I have designed or sketched out, but really more about using whatever inspires you and turning that inspiration into great card design.  More details can be found over at on my site CraftSwag.  Take care and thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra

Happy Birthday Confetti Card

Hi, I’m back! I’ve been away traveling for work and for fun.   Also, the weather has improved here (it was 70 degrees yesterday!) and I thought it would be a good idea to get the kids and I out for fresh air!  So, in other words, just living life 🙂

Today I’m playing along with the latest Curtain Call Challenge: Confetti Crush:

Who doesn’t like Confetti? Here is my take on this fun challenge:

confetti_birthday_wishes_justtyra_edited-1

When I think of confetti, I think of a crazy, fun time and I tried to express that feeling in this card design.  Do you feel like partying now?

Also, I have another fun fact to share — The “happy” and star cuts will be offered in my very first CraftSwag MiniWorkshop — so consider this a sneak preview! The first Mini-Workshop will share simple techniques on how to jump-start your creative flow.  The CraftSwag Classroom will open May 2014! Keep me in your thoughts as I nervously begin this new adventure!

As always, thanks  so much for stopping by the blog! Take care and have a wonderful weekend!  xo, Tyra
