 I used a whole bunch of Unity stamps here. The banner is from A Simple Christmas,( SS-855A) The trees & sentiment are from Holly Jolly Christmas (UK-497A) the reindeer & toys are from Tiny Tags Vintage Christmas (COSMO-876A) & in the background are some snowflakes from Welcome Winter (UK-571A)

So I stamped onto K&Co Spaghetti Cardstock with Memento ink , the snowflakes with versamark & clear embossing. I cut & pasted the banner & trees, I used embroidery thread as an accent, punched out stars for little star toppers, Rudolph got a red bead as a nose...done. It sounds like a lot but actually doesn't take alot of time. Thanks for stopping. My picture taking skills need improvement I know, but with a grandson, 2 cats & a really big & a really small dog bumping around, I'm glad you can see the card. Thanks for stopping.

Circle Time

This is for Unity Challenge :Stripes

This is a page from my grandson's school scrapbook.All that stuff that gets sent home with them,well, I stuck it in a pocket.I used a bunch of Unity stamps here.IB-SS-314,paper dolls, ,IB-SS-309 , Hello , I'm awesome, , Feb 2012 SMAK year tag, #'s & month. ,&Aug 2009 KOM schoolhouse & bike. This one is retired I think.

The inks memento tuxedo & rich cocoa, Studio G, Distress Markers (which I finally got Yeah!!) black soot & chipped sapphire.

The folder is a Crayola 81/2 by 11 scrapbook binder kit. I made a pocket & glued it onto 12x12 green bazzill paper.All the stamping paper is watercolor backed with red bazzill leftover from something else.

The letters are leftover from a Storyteller KOM ,paperclip is SMASH , The twine is from Noelle my Ippity chick & the staples are staples.

I started this project just for a note that came home with Christopher saying he was doing great in circle time,then it grew into a folder for other stuff he brought home; I left room because I haven't put all the stuff in the pocket yet & I know he brought home some small things that I can add on the side

I've got to say I really like the Hello tag & that schoolhouse is great!!Thanks.

Flowers & Dreams

I used ippity  You Deserve stamps. You need a chick for this, Mine is Noelle.Here's link for Unity: IPK 136 is the stamp set. I stamped them with memento. I colored with my copics, Put the front  through the sticker maker, add glitter & we have bling! Before I added the bling I put the backs of most through the sticker maker (without taking the "sticky" off the front)  & glued it to the card. Popped one up.I love these flowers they're really pretty & the corners are cute also. One of my favorite Ippity sets.Thanks , Enjoy!

It's Spring!

These 2 started out pretty much the same cat Trouble..(yes, that's her name & what she does walked all over one of the papers with muddy paws. So the first picture I had to cut out the little girl & paper piece her & restamp the background on green paper.After all that blending I did with copics trying to make green grass too.
 I used Phyllis Harris Just Breathe available: cut & pieced the little girl,
I used memento ink, copics & gelly roll.The top one the background is green bazzill on top of purple bazzil paper & purple thread & a butterfly pin from Websters'. Popups & sigh.

The bottom one. I colored the background with copics trying to make it look like grass ( my first time trying to blend this much area.I also did the dress & flowers with copics. just a bit of gelly roll on the flowers.My daughter had bought some embroidery thread & it split on her so I used the threads on the side for a bit of sparkle.A few staples to hold it all down. Hope you enjoy it. I ad fun with this one. Thanks

The bottom I used copics & watercoler pencils on the butterflies,then i ran them through xyron sticker maker ink side down & added clear glitter.I used distress inks in, blue jean to stamp & spiced marmalade in the background . My daughter got me the ribbon tool from memory makers & I put some Michaels' navy blue ribbon , using the "shoelace tool". Enjoy..
