Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming!

I have been trying my BEST to get ahead of the game this year. I'm so close to being done with present shopping. Now, I need to start wrapping! A big part of my yearly wrapping tradition is making my own tags, so I really need to build up my stash NOW.

I made this sweet little chalkboard tag using Unity's current Kit of the Month Oh Christmas Tree. So easy, yet stunning!
Be sure to check out Unity's darn good deals sale. AND $2.95 shipping for US orders! I'm going to have to do a little shopping myself ;)

Super Star.

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I love a LOT of stamp companies. I sometimes feel guilty if I don't use certain stamps, but in the end, I just love creating with all kinds of different companies stamps. They are all so different and unique, it's fun to switch it up sometimes.

I also love combining different companies to create my OWN thing. This is what I did with the card I made the other night.

I used Unity Stamp Company for the sentiment and Avery Elle for the background and banner stamps and dies. I also used the Stitched Star dies from Lil Inker. Fun fun!
I hope you all have a terrific weekend!


A quick Christmas tag {and a winner}.

Hi friends!

Just wanted to post a quick tag I made today with my Unity Kit of the Month. Love getting that full sheet of fresh red rubber in the mail. I have another project I'll be posting on Thursday using the same kit. It is a gorgeous one!
Super fun and simple tag to make for packages this holiday season. Need about 100 more! ha. 

Also, I wanted to post the WINNER of the Halloween Chatter stamp set I was giving away last week for World Card Making Day.... it is....
Amanda! YAY for her! Amanda, I will be in touch with you to get your stamp package out in the mail. Congrats! 

I hope you ALL have a fabulous Tuesday. xoxo


Merry & Bright Angel.

It's feels as though this time of year, we just BLOW through the holidays, I LOVE it! Halloween is almost upon us, but I'm already thinking Christmas. There's so much to do at Christmastime and it's always nice to get a head start on cards.

I LOVE this new release from Unity, Arianna Girl. She is beautiful. I should've taken a picture of her before I covered her up with vellum to show her true beauty, but the frosted end look will have to do.
It's a shaker card, so there are glitter goodies surrounding her. I heat embossed the vellum with a Unity sentiment from Naughty is the new Nice set in silver embossing powder. 

I hope everyone has a peaceful Friday! xoxo


Unity Thursday: Cancer Awareness

Hello my lovely friends.

Today is Unity day. So much greatness releasing today. I feel like I need 2 blog posts to even cover it all.

First, I will talk about the cancer releases. As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. However, these stamps that are releasing today can be ANY kind of cancer, which I love.
Tracy has created two beautiful fashionista girls and I have a lot of NEW cancer-related sentiments also releasing today. I hope you enjoy them and can put them to use in your own life.
This sentiment I designed is well....the truth. I know it seems a bit harsh, and I apologize if I offend anyone, but it is truly how I feel {and I know a lot of others feel the same}. Sometimes, you just wanna scream it from the rooftops. 
Next up, this SWEET adorable little girl I know ;) ;) got to get crafty too for this release! 
There is a new holiday Kid's Kit that can be used with children thanking others for gifts or making gifts. How awesome is that? 
My daughter had a blast coloring these adorable images and wanted to do more, so I know thank you's this year will be much easier with this kit. LOVE! 
I hope you will pop over to the Unity website, because there is SO much more releasing I can't even cover it all. So go take a look-see for yourselves and I'll see you back here next time!

Next up on the hop is Miss Jolande.


World Card Making Day 2013!

Hi card crafting friends! Happy World Card Making Day!

I have already joined in the celebration by placing a crafty order online. HA. I'm off to my daughter's Homecoming festivities, but I wanted to post a card and a GIVEAWAY to celebrate this fabulous day in crafty land!

I am giving away my Unity Stamp Co Halloween sentiment kit, Halloween Chatter. You get *quite* a few stamps in this set! I hope you will follow my blog, but it's totally not necessary. {I don't like to force you to like me.}
Just leave me a comment below and I will draw one lucky winner a week from today! That easy.

I also made this tag with this set. Not a card, but fun nonetheless!
Now....get to crafting!!!


Big, small, save them all.

October is a fun month. It's full of fall, leaves, pumpkins and trick or treating. But it's also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So today, I'm posting a card I made using Unity stamps to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness.
I used the Unity sentiment Big Small (which is only 89 cents this weekend!) and the Itty Bitty Hey Girlfriend.

Have a terrific Friday, peeps! xoxo
