Unity Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's Unity Blog Hop.  I do hope you have been leaving comments along the way for your chance at one of the prizes.



I have created a card for you today (surprise, surprise ;)  )  using an Angie Girl (Erica Girl) along with a couple of SMAK kits (All in the Numbers;  Leave Ordinary Behind).  I paired these with the Office Suite collection by Fancy Pants - love the soft colors mixed with the black.


The tag is from All in the Numbers and the sentiment along with the background butterflies (can you see them subtly stamped?) is from the Leave Ordinary Behind kit.  I then mounted the main image on some Foam Squares for dimension.

Altered Cigar Box

I am up on the My Mind's Eye Blog today with this altered cigar box.  Although the Fancy That paper is a Wedding themed collection, you wouldn't know it here.


After painting the box, I put my Cricut to use, tucked in some vellum leaves and part of a glassine bag and voila done.
Now it will hold some gourmet chocolates and makes a perfect thank you gift.  

For more information and detail shots, please see the My Mind's Eye Blog.

My Mind's Eye Blog.

I was up on the MME Blog today.  I used the Hello World collection to create a couple of cards that I thought would also work well for some Graduation cards.


Of course I used my 3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives to adhere the die cut jets.

Hello Gorgeous

I don't play just for fun often anymore, but I sense that is going to change... a renewed sense of energy and well being (if you are a friend on Facebook you will have seen my post regarding my Matcha tea, etc)

Anyhow I couldn't wait to play with this 365 collection by Chickaniddy Crafts, it is just, well... gorgeous.


I just got the Paper Smooches Shoes die and it is just so fun.  Finally, of course a Silhouette Die cut.

Unity Blog Hop

Welcome to the Unity Blog Hop!  I hope that you are leaving comments!


For my card today I have been dying to use this little cutie - Hippo Birthday -  and I desperately need more birthday cards for the students in my class.  The paper is from Pink Paislee and of course everything is adhered using my Scrapbook Adhesives.

For added dimension, I mounted the head on some foam squares and then fussy cut the little flower and added it.  So quick and easy, but perfect for a little girl in my class.

Now be sure to check out the website for the new releases and the sale!

# teacher

I had a great day today, got a lot done in my garden went on a long hike, had my parents over for dinner and even played in my craft room :)

I used the Elle's Studio Cameron and Everyday Moments to create a teacher card.  The dies are from PTI and Technique Tuesday (hashtag one) and I used a SMAK stamp from Unity along with The Learning Curve stamp set from TAWS.


Isn't that worm cute :)  I mounted him with some Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares.

I was inspired by this sketch at Retro Sketches:

I was also inspired by this week's challenge at Cupcake Inspiration:

Boy Themed Birthday Cards

I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesive Blog with a couple of boy themed birthday cards.  I ran out of my classroom stash so you just may be seeing more child themed cards in the next little bit :)

I used the Cameron Collection by Elle's Studio - you must know that I love a collection if it more than a year old and I still use it ;)  I have also used a couple dies from My Favorite Things.  Of course adhering my pieces with Scrapbook Adhesives is what makes it go so quickly!
