Honor Society Challenge…A potpourri of goodness

Hello It’s Tyra and today I’m finally sharing some of what I made with that Clique Kits  Kit Haul I shared. Warning, A LOT of pictures. I just got into a little creative groove, so here it is. And there are more paperclips. Last, I am supposed to share a few of my favorite things. Well time with my personal circus act, a.k.a. my kids and of course card making.  So I will let the pictures speak for themselves. 9457536_orig   Honor_Society_Blog_Share_JustTyra_Hi_and_Hello_Card Honor_Society_Blog_Share_JustTyra_Adored Honor_Society_Blog_Share_JustTyra_tag Honor_Society_Blog_Share_JustTyra_Lucky     Honor_Society_Blog_Share_JustTyra_Today_Layout Thanks so much for stopping by!

Be Brave

Hello! I’m here to share a fun card I created for Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking’s Galley Idol 2014.  I’m far into watching American Idol (Go Caleb! Go Jena!) so  I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get in on the fun!

Here are one of the cards I created:

Brave Card JustTyra

 

I used We R Memory Keepers shape n tape washi tape for the gray decorative strips. I also used washi for all the butterflies.  I used my computer and printer to create the sentiment “be brave.”

“Brave,” the song sung by Sara Bareillis and the Disney Movie by the same name served as a source of inspiration.  Whenever I have the opportunity to create just for the sake of creating, I find myself using whatever song, quote or story I’m inspired by at any given moment. I’ll share more about how I channel that inspiration in a special announcement this weekend (smile).

Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!

You Are The Best

Happy Monday! Today I’m home with the kids and decided to play along with one of my favorite challenges,  the Runway Inspired Challenge:

Diane_von_Furstenberg_004_1366.450x675

This iconic Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress features a bold pattern with a lot of movement. Love it! Let’s get to the card I created:

Encouragement Cards

I cut out banners and used a variety of border stamps and different inks in colors similar to the dress.  I also added vellum banners and washi banners to help create the illusion of movement.  I added paper string and stapled the banners to bring this card together.  So fun and fast!  Thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra
