Feels Like Home with LYB!

Hellooooo! Holy craziness it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. I am SO sorry.. I think I said last time I was going to be better about blogging.. then over a month went by.. YIKES! I have SO many projects that I didn’t get a chance to share on my blog. Hopefully you’ve at least seen them on the blogs of the companies I design for. Thankfully, pregnancy is done torturing me and I am feeling SO much better.. back to crafting and all that jazz.. feels good! Now that school is back in session I have time to get back to the good stuff.. crafting, trash TV, and crafting. No more excuses! I have had oodles of emails asking where I am.. if I still blog, etc. yes, people.. I am here.. I’m alive!

So, today I have two LYB projects to share with ya! Right now at LYB we are showing off the delicious fall themed collection, ‘Feels Like Home’. This collection actually reminds me of my grandma’s house on Thanksgiving. I can almost smell the turkey and gravy! So with Thanksgiving on the mind, I created a ‘thankful tree’. This is meant to be a centerpiece and everyone can write something they are thankful for on each leaf. I added a spool to it to make it a little taller. It’s gotta stand out, right? For more details on this project and my supply list, check out THIS LYB blog post.

I just love those accordion folded leaves in the Feels Like Home paper crafting kit! So different.

 

Next up was a project shared over at the LYB recently.. it’s an altered tray for holding embellishments. I got this tray on sale at Michaels.. really wish I grabbed an extra though (it’s by Graphic 45). I created this with some of the Naturals collection and a touch of Vintage Summer.

And there ya have it!

Whew! Look at me.. made it through a blog post!

Again, I am SO sorry for slacking. Some people mentioned that they’ve stopped by several times only to see I haven’t updated. You don’t have to do that though! You can subscribe to get my blog posts delivered right to your inbox!.. or follow me on bloglovin! (check my sidebar).

OK.. off I go. Have a good one!

Patriotic favors with Little Yellow Bicycle.. and a bean in my belly!

Heeeeeey! How goes it? Did you have a fabulous weekend? I was pretty busy this past week. My mom and kid brother were up (I’ve actually had my brother here for two weeks..) so I was busy trying to entertain them… Lots of singing and dancing going on over here.. lol.. and with everyone here I began realizing we need a bigger house! It gets kinda crowded with 3 kids, a hubby, a grandma, a 14yo brother.. and a pregnant chick. No room for anymore visitors! Not to mention of animals. I need SPACE!

And yeah… you read that right! Pregnant chick.. ME! Holy crud, peeps… I am preggers! Baby #4 is on the way! While I have been in a near pregnancy induced coma, I managed to get some projects done. Anyone who has been pregnant knows how exhausting it is at first. I just want to nap and eat ice and cheese, lol. Now of course I am getting busy with CHA work. It’s gonna be a crazy crafty two weeks for me… and then I plan to take a week long nap. HA! Suuuure. Three kids home for summer? Not happening.

I know.. three kids.. I already complain about having to craft late at night while they are in bed.. oh, hey.. here’s an idea! Let’s have another! lol. I honestly can’t wait to have a wittle cute baby again!

Really though, we are completely excited! All my kids are two years apart.. this one will be 6 years apart from my youngest. Some friends have said, “I can’t believe you want to start all over again”.. puh-lease! I just saw that baby swings now come with plug in adapters! (some of them) That alone is enough to get pregnant, lol. My hubby and I use to always say the baby swing companies must have had some deals with the battery companies because we could never find a ‘plug in’ swing.

 

So that’s my exciting news of the week! I am hoping when this baby is born to do a ‘Project Life’ type album for the baby’s first year.. I already know I will fail at this, lol.

 

Alrighty. Moving on to some patriotic favor boxes I made for Little Yellow Bicycle. I used the new Vintage Summer collection.. which is amazing! I think this is my favorite recent LYB collection. I like that you can go patriotic with red, white, and blue.. but not so ‘in your face’ patriotic craziness with fireworks, tons of stars, flags, etc.

So here’s my first favor box, a star shaped box made from the SVG Cuts Stars and Stripes SVG Kit.

I love the chipboard pieces in this collection.. those ‘milk caps’ are fabulous!

And of course ya gotta have the stick pins!

 

Next up was this square box with star cut outs I found in the Silhouette store. Really simple and easy to assemble.

I always love the paper crafting kits LYB makes… I am a big fan of rosettes!

 

And whoa.. the 4th of July is almost here! Kinda crazy how fast this year seems to be going by.. I mean.. didn’t we just have Christmas? Better hurry and get our pool up! Before I know it fall will be here.. which excites me! I LOVE the fall.. I am ready to pull out all my pumpkins again!

OK, I will see ya later! Thanks for stopping by!

YAY!!! FINALLY! I feel like I have been keeping in this deep dark secret from your guys for weeks now.. oh. wait. I have! No more secrets, peeps.. I was invited to join the new and exciting Little Yellow Bicycle design team! I am so excited about working with LYB and look forward to sharing my creations with you all!

If you don’t know me, you can read my ABOUT ME section. I haven’t been around the paper crafting world too long.. but I LOVE it! Who knew paper could make someone so happy?.. Well, unless it’s money. We all now that makes people happy.. And crinkled up candy bar wrappers. Why crinkled up? Because that means you’ve already torn into it to eat the yummy chocolate, of course. Also, if you’re new here please like my FACEBOOK PAGE! I share often over there and you might miss out on something awesome. You don’t want to miss out, do ya?..

 

Here’s the rest of the amazing team. The talent on this team is just crazy.. CRAZY. Be sure to go through the entire blog hop to meet everyone and see their ‘welcome’ cards. There’s also a giveaway for the entire collection of Just Because or either of the Fern and Forest for a few people who make it through the entire hop! Exciting!

Ya know what else is exciting? The NEW BLOG!! Yes, LYB blog got a little face life and you can check it out RIGHT HERE.

 

So, all the new and returning DT members made a card with a ‘welcome’ theme. I used the new Fern & Forest boy collection for my card. This collection is too.darn.cute. I also used a touch of The Naturals tags, stick pins, and orange cord.

The fox.

Really…

No, really!

i.die.

SO CUTE!

 

These wood stick pins are the best! I love the look of them. I was never one to use stick pins in projects.. that is.. until LYB came into my life.

Showing off some gorgeous LYB ‘Just Because’ collection!

 

*** LOOKING FOR THE ECHO PARK HOP? Click HERE! ***

Hey there! I’m back with Little Yellow Bicycle as a ‘Just Because’ cycling team member! You can check out the blog post HERE. Scroll through the LYB blog and see all the fabulous designs by the DT and cycling team! So much inspiration.

This collection is quite lovely! It has a unique color palette.. A bit different from the ‘norm’. A coral-ish red, navy blue, small touches of lavender… really nice!

JB-30

 

The moment I saw it all in person I knew I wanted to make something with a coffee or tea theme. I am ALWAYS inspired by the theme of papers/stickers. So, I made a tea cup! Almost looks real with the added saucer!

I added a dowel with some pretty rosettes, chipboard, 3D bow and stick pins. Fun, huh? You can make one too with the SVG Cuts Tea For You and Me kit. Add some bags of tea, cookies, etc. for a perfect gift!

 

Next up is a cute and simple vellum strip card. I LOVE LYB’s vellum strips!

I love how much there is to play with in the Just Because collection! You really can take it so many different ways from girlie and cute, vintage, Valentine-ish, etc.

Whatcha’ think? You can view the entire collection HERE. 

 

Before you leave, I want to mention that LYB is having a NATURALS contest! Remember the adorable altered pitcher I shared recently showing off the Naturals? Hopefully that sent you all running to your nearest craft store to get some for yourself! If so, take a look at the contest! It runs through March 17th so you have plenty of time to enter! MORE DETAILS HERE.

OK, friends.. see you later!! Happy crafting!

SVG Cuts’ newest card kit! Plus WINNER from the LYB Giveaway

Guess who’s a newly 30 year old? ME! My birthday was yesterday and I gotta say.. saying “I am 30″ is gonna take some getting use to.

All of a sudden I am noticing all these creases on my forehead.. GAH! I am 30.. not 100!

 

Today’s blog post is gonan be a quick one. I am sharing this card I made from SVG Cuts’ new Five Minute Cards SVG Kit. They are quick, easy, and eye-catching! I LOVE them! Because really.. sometimes ya just need a cool handmade card right.now. I went with the ‘I LIKE YOU’ card.

 

Of course the inner complicated person in me wanted to jazz up this card even more.. but then it wouldn’t be so ‘five minute’. So, I just added some quick stitching and a couploe stickers to make it ‘mine’.

The Naturals collection by Little Yellow Bicycle & GIVEAWAY!

Wow, wow, WOW! Have you all seen this stuff? It’s like burlap, canvas, and cork candy!..

Candy you wouldn’t want to eat.. I mean. Not sure how good they taste, but they sure are pretty to look at!

The Naturals Collection  <— Click there. Prepare to drool.

 

Are you a slobbering fool now?.. seriously! I know you are.. *hands you a towel*

 

I was sent a big ol box of pretties (Thank you, LYB!!) and it was a bit overwhelming opening the box and trying to think of what to use first. I was tempted to just start sticking things all over my body. I had a weird urge to just use every.single.piece. It all coordinates and ideas started pouring my in head. Burlap, cork, and canvas are so ‘in’. They just add a fabulous look, feel, and texture to projects. You can die cut them, stamp them, ink them, color them.. So many ways to make them work for your style.

For my first project with the Naturals collection I decided to stay away from a ‘paper craft’. I saw this little pitcher sitting here.. with ugly ribbon shoved in it that I will never use, yet I can’t seem to get rid of it, lol. I immediately wanted to alter it… spruce it up a bit! With the help of the Naturals it would become a beautiful decor piece.

Lovely, isn’t it? I frayed a strip of fabric and hot glued it behind a burlap circle. Then I stamped some polka dots onto a burlap flower and layered it over the circle with adhesive foam for dimension. The stick pins are stuck right into the foam. I LOVE the stick pins!

I love how easy it is to punch the cork… with a craft punch. I am not abusing my cork pretties. Don’t call CPS on me.. get it.. ‘CORK Protective Services’. Yeah.. I am full of lame jokes… I added some small scalloped circles to the wings of the larger butterfly.

I created a very simple tag on a dowel rod. I love the look of the cork letters on the cork tag.

I decorated the handle with a canvas tape strip. These are awesome and adhered really well!

 

Who wouldn’t love to get their hands on these pretties? I haven’t seen them online for purchase just yet. But I have seen them at Michaels! YES! You can get your LYB fix at Michaels craft stores! I was there the other day and immediately pulled to the display. So, if you live near a Michaels, stop by and see them for yourself.. and bring your checkbook. *wink*

 

I only had a chance to make one project for now, but I wanted to show how great the burlap tags looked stamped!

Perfect sentiment for the ‘Naturals’ collection, eh?.. (Stamp is from Unity Stamp Co.)

 

Also, the little cork pieces are some of my favorite. Perfect to add behind a button, flair, etc.

 

Alrighty.. now time for a little GIVEAWAY! You can get your hot little hands on some of this stuff. For a chance to win just leave a comment on this post. Giveaway ends FRIDAY, Feb 15! Here’s what is up for grabs!
