Unity Blog Hop

Welcome to the Unity Blog Hop.  I hope you have been enjoying the hop and are leaving comments along the way so that you have a chance to win one of the prize packages!

I have had very little crafty time lately so my projects have had to be quick and easy ones.  I used the October Layers of Life (love never leaves) along with the de France Labels for some quick and easy fall themed napkins.  I stamped the images with some acrylic paint on some pre laundered napkins.  I love how they turned out!  Goes well with the little dish I got while in France last spring!








Be sure to check out the new releases and the fabulous sale over at Unity after you have hopped along and visited the blogs!

A couple of cards using Notes & Things

It it Thanksgiving Weekend here in Canada and I am sure enjoying the fact that it is a rainy day and I am forced to stay inside ;)  I went and played in my craft room.  Working around the baby's schedule I don't have a lot of time so I created cards today.  Hopefully will get to a layout again soon.

I used the Notes  & Things from Crate Paper to create a couple of cards.  The colors and patterns in this collection are so pretty.




For this card I was inspired by the sketch at Sunday Stamps:

I then decided to create a 3 1/2 X 5 1/2 card as I have a lot of strips of paper left over from making regular A2 sized cards from a 12 X 12 piece of cardstock.

Homemade Smile

My last card for WCMD.  I played more today than I have in a month!  For this card I used the Homemade collection by Pebbles.  The flowers were fussy cut from some of the pattern paper.


The stamp is from Precious Remembrance.


I was inspired by the Fusion Card Challenge


A couple of Winter Themed Cards

I managed to play in my craft room again today!  I forgot what it was like having a baby around ;)

I used the Noel collection by Elle's Studio to create a couple of cards along with some Divine Twine and dots by Pebbles.


First up this card, I saved a negative scrap that I had punched out a snowflake from and I used it to create a tag.

I was inspired by this sketch from Retro Sketches:

Next up this card I created, I love layering bits and pieces.

I was inspired by this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

With Gratitude

Happy WCMD!  I do hope to play a lot in my craft room today as lately I have not had much scrappy time at all!  Not complaining though, I have been getting a lot of baby snuggles instead ;)

I used the Life Emporium Collection by Teresa Collins to create this card.  I love the cork dots, they are so fun!


The little tags are actually just little boxes cut from one of the pattern papers.  I just turned them into tags.  

I was inspired by this sketch at Retro Sketches:

New Arrival

I was up on the My Mind's Eye Blog yesterday with a layout I had so much fun creating!  I couldn't wait to scrap some of my grand baby's photos and the colors of the Just Sayin' collection just seemed perfect.


I used a Kerri Bradford cut file for the title and a Technique Tuesday stamp that I stamped right onto the photo.  Don't you just love the enamel hear for dotting the 'i'!


I am sure this is just the first of many baby layouts ;)

Ride Em Cowgirl

The September issue of the Fancy Pants Newsletter is out and once again it is full of amazing inspiration!  I created a layout for this months sketch challenge.  I used the Everyday Circus collection to scrap these fun photos of my daughter riding the mechanical bull at the Calgary Stampede.  The Die cuts are cut with my Silhouette.
