Another Baby to Celebrate

I can't believe it but my nephew who I remember holding as a baby will be soon having a baby boy of his own.  I made this card to celebrate at the upcoming shower and decided to use the Unity Be Inspired Challenge.  I have made this style of card before and while I briefly considered making a different style my family knows this card and may be a bit hurt if I didn't make one for the special occasion. 

Supplies used: Spellbinders circles, Jumbo Scallops, Unity Stamps, Craft Smith Boardwalk Sorbet

Guest Designer for Twinery - For my Sweet Valentine

When I found out I was going to be featured on the Twinery Blog, I was so excited and immediately thought of making something for the World's Best Husband (he truly is).  

I know this sounds cheesy but I have the best husband in the world, he is so sweet and supportive of my hobby (aka my addiction) that he even buys me supplies without even asking (Unity Kit of the Month, Twinkling H2O's, Deco Pens).  We have been together for 20 years and every day is better than the last.  I always make him cards and especially on Valentines Day.  

I started out with the Banner and hung it using Caribbean Twine, but it still needed something on the bottom, so next I made a fan and went from there.  I love the little fans I think they are a cute little embellishment and the twine is perfect for tying the bottoms as well.

Supplies used:  Caribbean Twine, Unity Stamps Faded Music Background and Blossom Stackers, Spellbinders Font One Lower Case and Love Sentiments, AC Glitter Cardstock, Memento Ink

Using my SOTM-FWF

I was recently lucky enough to be given a subscription to Unity's stamp of the month club by my very sweet husband.  One of the things I love about getting the kit is that I get stamps I might not normally choose for myself and the woods were one of those.  I had also recently gotten some gesso but hadn't actually used it and this seemed like the perfect stamp to try stamping it with.  I love how it turned out and I even used my husbands Gelato's (got them as a Christmas gift for him, cough, cough ...).  We both love using the Gelato's so I see "us" getting some more in the future.

Supplies used: Unity KOTM, 3 Girl Jam Pastel Ribbon, Gelatos, Gesso, Unity Snow Peeps, Shinhan Twin Touch Markers

Catching up - FWF

I know its January and most likely cold where you are (it's very cold here) but I am getting caught up on layouts so here is a Halloween layout of my son from last year.  I have been challenging myself to use my stamps on layouts and I used two Unity sets (EP Times and Seasons Numbers and Ticket to Fun).

Here is the sketch I based it on:
