Why oh why does Wal-Mart need to clearance the scrapbook section so much? Seems like every time I figure out what I can actually buy there versus having to go to a bigger town they go and change it all again. Ugh.
Hi! Thanks for joining us for the GIU blog hop, if you got here from Amy's blog then you're in the right spot. This is going up a bit late as I'm having major pc issues! So for the hop today, I'm showing you my massive project that I'm working on. I decided to make recipe books for a few people for Christmas and so I'm starting now. I'm using the Chilled Strawberry Soup set, I love it, it's super cute! I'm doing a few different cards into a single set. The set I'm currently working on use the strawberry, oven mitt and the heart.
I think that I'll end up with 20 or 30 of each card type per set. Such a huge undertaking. :-)
I hope you liked my project, don't forget to leave a comment, 2 commentators from the hop will win some Unity stamps. Thanks for stopping by, the next blog on the hop is Carisa.
So Kim over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps completely rocks and opened up a guest design team contest! I knew that I would actually have time to participate for the full month this time around and so decided to throw my hat in the ring. Here are the two projects I did. I kept it pretty simple and decided to focus on the stamps instead of doing a super detailed background.
The first stamp set I decided to use was Happiness is Reading. I kind of adore the little boy image in this set, he's so happy with his books and puppy!
I used papers from the Echo Park "That's My BOY" Collection. They worked so well with this stamp.
The second image I decided to use was Look for Rainbows. She's so cute, sassy and has great sentiments!
I used papers from the Heidi Swapp "Favorite Things" 6 x 6 paper pad for this card. I also used a clear Wink of Stella marker on the umbrella. The studs are glittered and are from the Imaginisce iRock line.
Both images were colored wit…
Hi! Thanks for stopping back in today for my second day as Unity Stamp Company's Growing in Unity gal! My card today is made with an older stamp set, Life's Short... Eat Cake! which was co-branded with Simple Stories. This set is fun, I usually use it for kid's cards but decided to try it out as one for someone a little older this time. Here's my card!
It's a little distressed, the paper was slightly distressed looking to begin with so I used my Distress Markers to stamp with to add to that look. I also added some sparkle just because it's fun. :-)
Thanks again for visiting, don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win some grab bag stamps, I'm picking 2 winners Saturday morning!
