Here is my youngest with her "tiara" headband.
And here is my oldest with her more "tween" headband!
Supplies: Pattern papers used were Lulliloo and Blackout. These papers work perfectly together. Buttons and ribbon were from my stash - not sure of their source.
Thanks for letting me share!
Secret Keeper Windows
Holly - Oh So Merry Collection
Snowflake - Oh So Merry Collection
I also used the stamp for Christmas, ink, jewels, glitter adhesives, and a ribbon.
I have noticed the affinity of a stamp and glitter adhesives being very good with this card.
I put jewel on snowflake at the point.
Since I am not panicked before Christmas, I am going to prepare a little early.

I love the bright colors, and strong graphic elements of the pages. Urban Lily papers are perfect for those of us that like to cut, cut, cut!
On a recent trip to Six Flags, I took this photo of my girls and their friends. I was so delighted to find an Urban Lily paper collection that suited it PERFECTLY. The bright, vibrant colors in the photo are exactly matched by the colors in the paper....and the title is what I would have added myself! I cut and mixed a few papers from the "Happy Everything" collection for added pops of color, and added a rub on. It was so simple.
I used the "Friends" paper:
and the "Always" paper:
and these fun rubons from the "Celebration" Collection

We have an eighteen year old and these days feel lucky to have a daughter who loves her life ! She's in a college that's a perfect fit for her interests in music and audio technology, is an awesome Bass Guitarist and working hard towards her dream of being a producer in the music industry. It wasn't always smooth sailing when she was much younger as she was a quirky child who was not typically *girly* , she was not into Barbie Dolls, dressing up, ballet and other girly best friends.
At eighteen, Stasha's quirks have become part of her personality and is now a cool young woman with her own true sense of direction and style !

Hi Everyone I'm Erika, and I'm over the flippin MOON to be a part of the Urban Swank design team. When I talked with Becky, I knew I'd love it here and I so hope to give you all inspiration and a laugh or two along the way.
Today I've got a project to share with you that uses the Happy Everything and Mayella Collections from Urban Lily. If you love fussy cutting even half as much as I do, you NEED to grab some of these papers. (just stop here to add some to your cart).
I'm a scissor lover, it is true. Anything that can create more movement on a project, gets cut and glued using the Liquid Scrap Dots from Helmar. So without further adieu, here is my very first Urban Swank. I hope you love it.
Answer It chipboard piece to give it a little punch and then went crazy with the stickles around the edges. I'll tell ya, I'm a magpie; If it is Shiny it is MINEY!!!!
Well, that is all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me some Urban Swank Love. Come on now, make this girl feel at home!!!!
Hi Everyone, I'm Erika Taylor and I'm super excited to be working with Urban Swank. I've got a smokin husband named Mark, who is my biggest supporter and fan and we have two zany and wild children aged 3 and 6. We reside in small town Southern Saskatchewan.
I've been paper crafting since September of 2008, but you could always find me with scissors, glue, crayons and construction paper when I was a little girl. I've got a crazy personality and love to make people giggle, either with me or at me.
Creatively, I love trying new things and revel in new techniques, tools and supplies. I am very eclectic in my style and sometimes look from one project to the next and think "Did I make both of those? or was I abducted by aliens and didn't even know it?" I guess I'll never know the answer to that one. The Aliens are pretty good at covering their tracks lol.
Stop over to my blog and take a look. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and leave some love. You can find my blog at http://taylordconcepts.blogspot.com

I created two projects for you!
This page uses Happy Everyday Always, Happy Everyday Friends, Sugary Collection Honey, and the fantastic Helmar Adhesives. I added some fabric, ink, mist, white cardstock, lace, and chipboard letters. The photos were taken after a big storm where I live. I was the first one out in the storm after it stopped. We don't often get big storms so the journaling is about how the local newspaper used something like 27 of my pictures on their website. It was very exciting!
I also have a little friend (she's 6) who has cystic fibrosis and has had to spend some time in the hospital. I just found out when I got back from my vacation so I created this card for her. I need to get it off into the mail soon. I hope it really cheers her day! The card also uses the Happy Everday Always paper and it uses Sugar High from the Mooch Collection. It is backed with cardstock and uses Helmar Adhesives.
That's it for me today. I hope you all enjoy the last few days before school starts back up. Happy Monday and Happy Summer!
