Kit Haul! Clique Kits August Release

Hi crafty people! Sorry I’ve been out for a bit, but things have been a little cray! (yes, I said “cray” – is that word already out of style??).  School is starting soon and we are preparing for that too! And I’ve been working on a few other crafty surprises — stay tuned, details to come soon!

Anyway, here is my latest haul from Clique Kits (Click on the pic to see more detail):

Do you see that cute little deer/doe? I’m not sure she’ll make it onto any layout or card. I might just keep her in my purse pocket since she is so cute.  I LOVE all of the gold foil accents! I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!  I think this collection is also great for Christmas if you are looking for something different than the traditional red and green.

Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!

Kit Haul! Clique Kits

Hi it’s Tyra and I’m here to share something a little different today.  I often enjoy seeing “kit haul” posts.  I think it reminds me of a time when I was little girl and my little girl friend and I would share what was inside our purses.  This is sort of the adult equivalent of that.  I thought I would share a recent haul from Clique Kits:


A little close up:


Colorful and lovely, huh?  I’m wanting to create more layouts and so I thought that this kit might give me the jumpstart I’m looking for.  And of course I’ll create a few cards 🙂

Well that’s all for now.  Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend?  I spent time cheering on my favorite college team on a brisk almost fall day. Can you guess what stadium this is?


I also wanted to share a new post for my “Just Add Ink” feature over at the Sweet Stamp Shop: Big Pattern Small Scale.  Please check it out if you have time! Here is a sneak of the card I created for the post:


Take care and thanks for stopping by! xo, Tyra

You’ve Got a Friend

Today I’m playing along with the latest Runway Inspired ChallengeStella McCartney.  The bedazzled mini skirt against a white background is fabulous!


This is the card I created:


The collage of hearts, arrows and abstract shapes are die cuts from an old patterned paper (Pebbles – American Crafts) and yellow card stock. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  The crazy arrows and colors work together to create a sense of movement.  Maybe this card is ready to rip the runway! Thanks for stopping by! xo – Tyra
