Fabulous Unity Blog Hop


Welcome to the Unity Blog Hop!  I hope you are hopping along and leaving comments along the way for your chance to win the fantastic prize that is up for grabs.

For my card I have used the Chic Fabulous set, love the dresses along with the Undeniably You set.!  I also used the Mixed Company collection by Heidi Swapp, isn't that paper perfect for a feminine dress?!  the large sentiment was cut with my Silhouette.


I was inspired by this week's sketch and colors from Poppy Sketches:


Be sure to check out the Unity shop for some great deals on this week!

Repurposing the Americana Collection

I am up on the Pebbles Blog with a few cards in which I repurposed the Americana collection.  Be sure to pop on over to have a peek.  This is a sneak peek of one of them.  I also used some SRM Stickers to create this BBQ invite.

You can do anything

Xyron and Paper House Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper House and Xyron Blog Hop!


The Xyron Design Team are taking part in a blog hop with Paper House.  I was very lucky to receive some France and London themed items since I just got back from there!  I used the Brithish Prep paper pack along with the 3D Stickers - Paris collection and the 3D Scenes - Paris to scrap a few of the photos I got of our first day in Paris.  I used my Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the paper squares and the photos and finally accented with some Unity Stamps.

Just Do It

You have until tonight to play along with my Lilac Inspired Challenge:


I went with the colors and used the Black & White collection by Glitz to create this fun encouragement card.  Kind of an inspiration for myself since I just joined on as a Jamberry consultant (which I am loving!).  The scribbles are cut with my Silhouette.

Fancy Pants Nautical and Kiwi Lane

All this week the Fancy Pants Design Team is hopping with Kiwi Lane. I am up today with a fun baby boy card.  I used the Nautical collection.  I used my cricut to cut out the sail boat.  The Kiwi Lane Border was perfect to create some waves.



Be sure to hop on over to the Fancy Pants blog for more information on how I created this card and for your chance at a fabulous prize!

Busy, busy, busy!

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted anything since Thursday!  I seem to be so busy lately and crafting is way down on the priority list.  I had hoped to get a lot done this weekend but this happened:

We got a new dog. Last summer we had to put our 3 year old dog down as he was sick and we did everything we could for him.  The time was right for another dog so we looked at the SPCA for a rescue dog.  This guy was perfect.  Ringo is about 1 1/2 and VERY happy, friendly and good.  He is a perfect fit.  Needless to say we have been preoccupied!

I did manage to squeak out this card, after completing some Design Team projects.  I used the new Wood Necessities and some Now & Then by My Mind's Eye.  I also used a Kerri Bradford Cut File.

I am playing along with this fun sketch at Wanna Sketch:

And the color challenge at Color Q:

Unity Blog Hop

Busy day on my blog today!  Please scroll down for the Xyron Blog Hop.

Welcome to another Unity Blog Hop.  I hope you have been hopping along and leaving comments along the way for your chance to win the prize that is up for grabs this week.

For my card I used one of the new peeps.  Isn't it adorable?!  Perfect for the students in my class.  I also used the Sugar Shoppe by Doodlebug.








Snails in my Garden

Please scroll down for my Xyron and Out on a Limb post.

I am up on the SRM Stickers blog today with this layout.  I may one of the few people who like to see snails in my flower beds, I love snails.  I have used the Garden Party collection by Pebbles, along with my Silhouette and of course some fun SRM Stickers (check out the SRM Blog for which ones)

I love to layer the stickers over my photos.



Xyron and Out on a Limb Scrapbooking

Have you been hopping with Xyron and Out on a Limb Scrapbooking this week?  The Xyron Design Team were sent some OOLS kits to play with and let me tell you, they are so fun to use and so affordable!  I love that they have a monthly kit club! 

I got to play with the Spa Day cut outs.  So perfect since I just signed up as a Jamberry consultant.  I thought this would make a perfect thank you card for one of my Hostess.  However, my 16 year old daughter saw it and scooped it up!  I used my Xyron Mega Runner to assemble the card, the Xyron 150 and Xyron 250 to assemble the nail polish bottles and finally the Xyron Adhesive Dots to adhere the sequins.  Finally, the stamps are from Unity.



I am also playing along with the Curtain Call challenge:

Monster Birthday Wishes

I finally played with my Max collection by Bella Blvd. Will have to use it some more as I need more cards for the kiddos in my class.
