Trust In The Lord {Unity Stamp of the Week}

Ok, friends. Last post / project before I completely pack up my entire craft room and transport lots and lots of boxes and start all over again in a new room, in a new house. I can't WAIT to show you the transformation from start to finish. Tomorrow, I'll post my inspiration for my new craft room with some things I've already purchased. Friday is the big move!

BUT - tonight - a card I made with Unity Stamp Company Stamp of the Week. I *really* need to work on following this quote better. For realsies.

I LOVE this stamp. In fact, I've been completely head over heels about this Stamp of the Week action. I have loved each and every one I've received so far. No surprise, as I am clearly a Unity FREAK. haha. Anyway, I also got to play with a few of the new colors from The Twinery. LOVE. The colors are beautiful in real life and really round out my collection. The purple hues are from Stampin Up - a few of my faves - Concord Crush and Rich Razzleberry. I cut out the hearts in Rich Razzleberry and popped the hearts from the stamp base as well.
Until next time....I'm about to go tape up a box! I really hope everything gets across town unharmed. Have a great week peeps!

Hold On Card {Unity Stamp Co Stamp of the Week}

Hi friends! Hope y'all had a nice relaxing weekend. I got my Unity Kit of the Month AND Stamp of the Week in the mail this weekend, so of course....I had to pick my FAVORITE and ink right up! Isn't this butterfly a beaut? I love it. It's from the January Kit of the Month. I don't use a lot of orange, but love the butterfly orange. I used my Promarkers to color her in and used Creative Charms bling to create a trail. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company's Stamp of the Week club. LOVE that. For around 5 bucks, you get a fun lil rubber treat in your mailbox each week! 
Have a great week ahead! {staying positive}

Happy Birthday Angelica! {Peachy Princess Blog Hop}

If you don't know Angelica, you're missing out. She is a super creative, talented and sweet friend of mine. I got to know Angelica while on the Peachy Keen Design Team. Then, I started stamping with her BEAUTIFUL stamp line, Market Street Stamps. She has always been a great friend to bounce ideas off of, offers support and most importantly - we laugh a lot together! Happy Birthday Miss Thang, I'll buy you Taco Bell when you come visit me :)
I created this card using ALL Market Street Stamps. The background stamp is Here Comes the Sun and the swimsuit and sentiment is from the Chillaxin set. I created this card ALL with Angelica in mind - her favorite colors (red and teal - mine TOO!), her stamps and she LOVES California ;) It also reminds me of Wonder Woman - which she TOTALLY is.

I hope you have a WONDERFULLY happy and totally amazing birthday, Angelica! Love ya tons!

Next in the hop line-up....Miss Brenda!

Follow Your Heart Card

So what would you do if I told you that every week, for like the price of a Starbucks Venti Iced Caramel Macchiato, a little slice of stamp heaven would magically appear in your mailbox? WELL people, this is real life. Unity Stamp Company just started doing STAMP OF THE WEEK. Pure genius. Here is what I made with Week 1's stamp. Week 1 you actually got TWO stamps. How awesome is that?
I just love this concept. It even comes in a super sweet little package - straight from a stamping angel! :)

I hope you all had a wonderfully splendid weekend!

Love Is the Thread Card

Monday, Monday. Think positive thoughts :) I CAN DO THIS!

I made a card for a beautiful wedding I attended this weekend. Good times with good friends! I am entering this into the Unity Stamp Company Kit of the Month Challenge. 

I used the December 2011 Kit of the Month, Echo Park Yours Truly paper and a good ole fashioned white doily I made my own heart and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist. I also used Tim Holtz die "Sewing Room" and The Twinery Twine.

Have a great week friends!

How's It Rollin?

Happy Friday y'all! It's going to be 71 today here in Dallas. If I HAD these roller skates in real life, I could take em out for a spin! :)
For this card, I used Unity Stamp Company Itty Bitty Stamp How's It Rollin, Creative Charms Groovy Petal Medley, Spellbinders dies and My Mind's Eye 6x6 patterned paper.

Peace, love and roller skating! xoxo

I've been busy....SMASHING!

All I really have to say today is this:

I love smashing.

Smash books. My new obsession. These precious, random and convenient lil books will soon be replacing the traditional 12x12 books in my house, I do believe.
Here's a lil video of my first one. More to come, you can count on it.
