Christmas Trees, not just for Christmas…

Hello Everyone!  Sandy (SandyPie) saying hi, a little late this sunny Thursday, I wanted to show you a little pet project I’ve been working on starring something you may not expect this time of year. 


I love Wendy’s Tiered Tree template, but Christmas is too short, and this one has potential for other uses, like this:


A fun little mobile, almost sculpture dare I say.  No, it’s not perfect but I smile when I see it.  I think something like this would be fun for a baby room for a pseudo mobile, I don’t know if the inks are safe for little people and I’d probably run my corner rounder on the points just to be safe, but aren’t the mobiles supposed to be out of reach anyway.  ;)

Hopefully I’ve opened your mind a little to some new possibilities with “seasonal supplies”.

Oh, and guess what, I have coupon code for you too!  Just use coupon code WBDblog25 in your cart and get 25% off your WendyBird purchase before March 1!!

Thanks for stopping by see ya’ll again soon!

My Introduction!

I wanted to pop in and say Hello!

My name is Tanyia. I have been CTing for Wendy for a few months, taking a couple off for personal health reasons, but am back now! I am so excited, too! I like working for Wendy because she truly has some adorable designs, she is helpful, on top of things, and actually pretty darn nice!

I don't know, I think if you want to buy things and become part of the hybrid family you should know who you are dealing with, if you know what I mean. So I will assume you agree and introduce myself formerly!

I just recently turned 36. I am a stay at home mommy to three beautiful children. They are 18, 12, and 9 and all girls. Right now we live in Northern Virginia, outside of D.C. I have been digital scrapbooking for about 3 years now and fell in love with hybrid when I saw all the beautiful little things you can do with it! But, believe me I am still learning and growing and so I would love to share my hybrid journey with you!

I can not wait to share all the hybrid goodness with you, so stay tuned!!!

I am sure that you saw some of these before but here are a few of the things I have done for Wendy.

Until next time ... get those scissors ready ladies!

Get On the Hybrid Challenge Train

Sarah here (who apparently can't type her name, because she had to re-type it four times ). So, when you're done laughing at my obvious blondness for the day, I'll be waiting here to show off some GREAT hybrid results

There are a couple of hybrid challenges going on at Brownie Scraps for the month of February.

One is the normal monthly hybrid challenge, being hosted by Wendy

and here are a couple of my favorite results:

Another challenge floating around the forum is the Winterpalooza Hybrid Challenge ... any hybrid project, any kit (current BS, of course). The results thus far have been spectacular!




Everything just turned out amazing, didn't they?

More New Release Inspiration

Hello All!

Sandy (SandyPie) I’m new to Wendy’s team and so thankful to be here.  I was giddy as a school girl when Wendy tapped me to join the team.  I’m a big fan of her templates and super excited to get to work with her and the everyone on the team. 

I was a little late getting my new release projects in this week, but Wendy has been super gracious and allowed me to post my projects up for you here.  So let’s get started….

First up we have the Treat Tent:



And the second new release, Cards Vol 5: Cut Down



And one more, have you seen Wendy’s Challenge in the Brownie Scraps forum?

Well this month Wendy has set us up for Valentine’s Day perfectly with this fun fun template.



And while we’re on the subject of Valentine’s Day and bragging on ourselves I’ll finish today with this super cute project I’m so proud of:



Thanks so much for checking out my projects today!
