Friday's creations

Had some extra time last night to put together a few more cards. Of course, I used my Unity stamps, again!! No inspiration, just took some DCWV paper I had lying around and matched up some SU cardstock. This is what I came up with! The smaller card is just some scraps from what was used on the larger one. The mini kit sets from Unity are so very versatile, I love them! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Big Shiny Flowers

I put these two cards together tonight even though I'm totally exhausted from the big Unity Release Party last night and all the work I have had to do this week to get caught up in order to be on vacation next week. Anyway, I stamped one of the images from the Unity Big Shiny Flowers set and cut it into four pieces, layered with some SU Wild Wasabi and Night of Navy. The sentiment is from an Impress Rubber Stamp I bought a couple of years ago. I love these colors together, don't you?

Unity Trio

Put together two each of these simpe little cards. I'm going to box them up and tie them with a pretty brown ribbon. I got more new Unity stamp sets in the mail yesterday and had to use them right away. The Little Labels 1 set are the perfect size for 3 x 3 cards. The sentiments are from my SU Short & Sweet stamp set. I love these colors: soft sky, whisper white, and chocolate chip, together. Gotta get to some more stamping!! Thanks for looking!!

Just want to SCREAM!!!!!!!!!

I screwed up my blog!!!!!!!! Had it where I wanted it, but tried to switch to a "cooler" template and totally messed it all up!! Now I am back to square one! Please be patient while I take a deep breath and try and fix the mess I have made!
AND: I know there is no way I have over 1,000 viewers online, so this widget is totally not working either...............uuuuuuuugggggggghhhhhhhh!!!!! Pin It

More Unity Giggle Grove

If you can't tell by now, I love my Giggle Grove set by Unity Stamp Co.!!! The possibilities with this set are endless. I put this one together with some SU river rock (still not sure I like this color) textured, night of navy, and very vanilla cardstock. I used one stamp with the Versamark watermark ink for a background and stamped the main image with the night of navy ink. Added a little river rock ribbon and some blue bayou designer paper, and it was complete. The "smile" sentiment is from yet another Unity stamp set that I have. If you have not checked these stamps out, you should!! Thanks for stoppin' by! Have a great weekend!!

Matchbook holder for Post-its

Finally got some time tonight to do something with my new Unity Stamps. Put these matchbook style holders for Post-it notes together and used the Hawaiian stem stamp from one of my Mini Kit sets I just got. (Pictured below). I love these sets and have so many ideas, I don't know what to make next! These went together pretty quickly and I plan to make a bunch more to sell eventually. I got 5 (yes, 5) more Unity sets in the mail on Monday and am going to get them organized. Hope to have some more time and inspiration to make more goodies with these stamps this week. TFL!!

Future Stamper.........

I just had to share this..........
Tonight we had my husband's birthday dinner and my niece Hayley, who is 9 years old, made him this birthday card with the "All in the Family" stamp set from Stampin' Up! that she got for her birthday. Isn't it adorable!?! That's my husband, myself, our son Garrett, and our dog Milo! She did a great job, don't you think? I gave her a catalog and apparently she has marked several pages that have stamps she would like and has made a list..........a long list. Uh-oh!!
