Cute Easter Tag by Alicia

Hi Alicia here with another project for The Crafty Pickle. This time my focus is Easter. I used a November flair (church) to  make this simple tag. I use some old  pattern paper i have and some Tim holtz distress ink but you can use any kind material you want. For the final touch I used an embellishment (flower)  Here is a photo of my Tag:

Be sure to check out TheCraftyPickle on Etsy for lots of inspiring flair!

Watercolor your Valentine’s Day with Treasa

Happy Monday everyone!

  I hope you had a great weekend! Treasa has some fantastic ideas for you using TCP’s Watercolor hearts flair set. Take a look.

 

Hi there, I can not believe that it’s almost Valentines day. This year is already going by super fast. Today I wanted to share with you all some Valentines Day cards that I made for my Project Life album using watercolors. I was totally inspired these Watercolor hearts flair badges in The Crafty Pickle shop.

So I cut me down some 3×4 blank cards and got out my watercolor pencils and started creating. Here are the cards that I came up with.

I hope that these cards inspire you to pull out your watercolors and create some fabulous cards. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!

Project Life with Mona

Hi Crafty Friends!

  Today we have another fabulous project life spread with Mona. Take a look!

Hello !
I’m back here with one of the last 3 pages of 2014 from my Project Life album. Who else is still in previous year with PL?  But I’m back on track again, so my new pages will show up here soon.

For this spread I used Studio Calico cards from last 2 Pl kits, some embellishments as weel, but  the most important are flairs from The Crafty Pickle, which I like so much.

This is kind of embellishment, which fits everywhere, in every PL page.
At the end of this post, you can find links for flairs I used. TFL!

Flairs I used:
– glitter symbols 
– vintage camera 
– everything is awesome 
– speech bubble 
– black&white patterned

Do you like badges / flairs? How do you like to use them?
I’m curious if anybody likes to use them on PL pages, as much as I do.

Thanks for sharing Mona! I always love your Project life pages!

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Vintage Valentine Love

Hi Crafty Friends!

Designer, Cathy Martin, is up with a sweet layout featuring the new Vintage Valentine flair from TheCraftyPickle Etsy shop! Take a look!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

It’s February 3rd, which means it’s only 11 days until Valentines Day.  Now I’m not a big Valentines person, but I do love doing themed layouts and taking cute pictures of my kids!  For today I made a layout featuring flair from The Crafty Pickle!  I used some flair from the Vintage Valentines set pictured below.

For my layout I went all artistic! I used mist, water colours, and chalkboard paint to add some extra touches to my background.  I had so much fun creating this layout, it was a bit different for me to just let loose and go with the flow but I liked just putting stuff down without worry about it looking perfect!  I was also amazed with how easy and quickly this layout came together.  The flair added just a little bit of a vintage touch to a more modern layout.

Make sure you check out all the wonderful Valentines collections available at The Crafty Pickle as well as some sweet sequins to go along with all your lovey dovey projects!

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Thank you so much for sharing, Cathy. I love the black and white with bright pops of pink and of course the Vintage Valentine Flair.

Happy Crafting!

Valentine’s Day Mason Jars

Hi Crafty Friends!

I can hardly believe it is February already!! Designer, Stephanie, has an adorable little Valentine project to share with you all today. Check it out!!

________________________________________________________________________

Hey y’all! Happy February, already!!
I am thinking about Valentine’s Day, which will be here before we know it! I wanted to do something small for the kids’ teachers, so I thought mason jars filled with candy would be perfect. Who doesn’t love chocolate?!

I bought these jars at the dollar spot at Target then pulled out a bunch of Valentine related embellishments to decorate them.

The flair buttons are from The Crafty Pickle from theWatercolor Hearts set. This set is great for Valentine’s Day & comes with six assorted 1″ buttons.
I filled the jars with a bunch of chocolate kisses, a chocolate heart & candy bar. I think their teachers will enjoy them-I know I would! Now I just need to make a few more before February 14th!!
Take care & keep crafty!
~Stephanie

FriYAY!!!!!!!!!

Hi Happy Crafty Friends!!!

  It is finally Friday! We made it! I dont know about you but this week was a long one and I am ready for the weekend and some scrappy time!

 Today designer, Stephanie, has TWO projects to share with you using TCP flair. I hope you love her projects as much as I do, Take a look!

_________________________________________________________________________

I have two projects to share today featuring flair from The Crafty Pickle . The first one is a card that I made for my daughter who is trying out for her school gymnastics team this week! She was nervous & pretty certain that she wouldn’t make the team, so I wanted to make her a card to give her a little extra encouragement!!
I started with this sketch from Cardabilities:
    
I used my Martha Stewart punch to create the branches in the background. The “shine” flair button is from TCP & can be found here .
I love the combination of colors & textures here! Hope she enjoys the cad too (even if she doesn’t make the team!) I will always be her biggest fan, regardless!
My next project is a layout that started with sketch from Sketchabilities:
I just love a good sketch & this one really caught my eye! Sketchabilities is also teaming up with the challenge site, White With One for this sketch challenge. You are to use white & the color “placid blue”. Here is my page:
I used scrap papers from my stash (I am on a roll using them up nowadays!) and the flair here is also from The Crafty Pickle.
The “snapshots” flair is from their adorable Bright Everyday set. This set comes with 6 buttons that are prefect for any layout, card or PL spread!

The “shake your flakes” flair button comes by itself & is the perfect embellishment for all your winter projects!!  It’s too cute!

I added in other embellishments to complete my page and give it more dimension from Elle’s Studio, Pink Paislee, October Afternoon & Studio Calico.
Thanks for visiting on this Friday!

Handmade Valentine Treats with Joann.

Hi Crafty Friends!

  Classroom moms, This one is totally for you!!! Our designer Joann has such a fantastic idea for some valentine’s she has created from some personalized flair. Completely adorable!!! Check it out!!

_____________________________________________________________________

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

Today I am sharing some fun treats! These will be great for classmates, students, and even coworkers. I received some personalized flair with the names of my kids from TCP etsy shop and used them to personalized some treats for Valentines.

Create amazing Valentine's using custom flair from TheCraftyPickle.com
Here are the steps:
  • Start with a 3 1/2 x 4 piece of White Daisy cardstock
  • On the 3 1/2 inch side score at 1/2 and 3
  • Rotate clockwise and on the 4 inch side score at 7/8
  • After you have scored everything place your piece of cardstock where the 3 1/2 inch side is horizontal and the 4 inch side is vertical.
  • There will be two rectangles at the bottom left and right corner, take some scissors and remove those two sections.
  • I took my corner rounder and rounded the top corners and the bottom corner (the part that will fold up)

I took a background stamp and stamped the image to create my background and took the little heart from the CTMH Countdown stamp set to add in random places. I punched (2) 1 3/8 circles from someCranberry and Cotton Candy cardstock, (2) 1 1/4 circles from White Daisy cardstock and stamped an image using the CTMH Perfect Fit- Dad stamp set with some Cranberry and Cotton Candy Ink onto the White Daisy circles.

I layered them and added my beautiful personalized flair. Finishing them off by cutting some gold pieces of cardstock into banners and a cherry lollipop!
I hope you enjoyed today’s mini project. Thanks for stopping by!
