Designing with….Chickaniddy!

Hello crafty friends? How are you? I am doing well. The husband and I are balancing work outside of the home with helping a pair of kindergarteners read, enjoying our little preschooler expand his vocabulary by leaps and bounds and taking every single chance we can to grill outside when the weather is nice (hugs to you, Spring).

I realize my posts have been infrequent and I apologize. But I have been super busy busting out (yes I said busting out) designs with some of the fabulous crafty goodness I have been fortunate to get my hands on.

Today I want to share some of the goodness I created featuring Chickaniddy’s Twirly Girly, Date Night and a little bit of Jolly Good. Those names tho’ (I need to ask my sister if I’m using 2015 slang appropriately.)  Chickaniddy’s collection names are just fabulous! Here is what I have designed along with a sneak photo:

Summer Manifesto

Lately I have really wanted to play along with page layouts and I found the perfect inspiration playing along with Studio Calico’s Sunday Sketch:     Summer_Manifesto_JustTyra_marked     The “Summer” die cut is my handwriting. I like how I was able to add that personal touch.  I painted the die cut with several different watercolors to mimic the colors of this beautiful season. Summer_Manifesto_UpClose_JustTyra I think the hardest (and almost impossible) task from my manifesto will be to find a place to take a nap outside.  I don’t have a hammock, I don’t have any vacation plans finalized and I have three tiny tots who are little human magnets. And the mosquitos here are treacherous! I think creating this layout has inspired me to continue to create more layouts and get more photos onto pages. And journal more.  I’m reminded of this article which serves as motivation.  Wish me luck! And consider making your own manifesto as a reminder to slow down and enjoy every single moment. Take care! xo, Tyra
