friends with flair!!

Just a quick post to join in on friends with flair over at Unity!! I used an Ippity set here. I paper pieced the stack of books on dictionary paper and it was embossed in black. The butterfly I used glossy accents and then covered it with doodlebug glitter! I love doing this even though not often. The green seam binding NEVER scans right..but it matches the lighter green in the polka dots!

Thanks for looking and have a GREAT hop and a GREAT weekend!

All Things Unity #42 BINGO

I tried taking a picture of my card this time..not sure I'm much happier with the results. BUT, I used my crummy cellphone camera. ;) I made this card for the challenge over at All Things Unity using a bingo card. I chose the last row down which was ribbon, sentiment, bling and free space. I chose rubons for that last space. The rubons I used were actually heidi swapp..from like 2005!! I could NOT believe they actually worked as well as they did (aside from the little paper sliding around so I didn't get a perfectly straight rubon!) considering they didn't work very good the FIRST time around!

Well, hope the pic is not too crummy. Still working on that! :D I'm also playing along with the HYCCT challenges at Splitcoast. So this one is for the 2nd challenge which was to use rhinestone bling.

Have a great week!

Friends With Flair

I haven't done FWF with Unity in quite some time! So...I hope I'm doing this right! :) The set I used was What Matters Most by Ippity! I haven't used these particular stamps until now..and those butterflies are just so pretty! I had fun cutting them out and glitterizing! :)

This card is also a part of the Ippity Challenge to do one of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers. There's a new challenge everyday and the ladies are sending cards to a hospital in Texas I believe for Breast Cancer patients to use.

Anyways...busy day of work ahead. Have a wonderful weekend!

Chick Challenge #2

Last day for the Chick Challenge #2 over here. Challenge was based on this sketch:

Here is my card in all it's crooked scanning glory. :) As usual, I have a real hard time with shape cards and I'm never happy with I went rectangle. :) Funny thing about this card, is that I'm not even religious in any way! Although, I do love a lot of the beautiful messages! This card uses the Ippity set: What Matters Most.

Have a good day!

Chick Challenge #1

Sorry for the crooked scan.. I'll never get good at that. ;) Definitely try and take pics more often! This card uses the Ippity set Authentic Man.

The girls over at Ippity (By Unity) have a new challenge blog! Check it out at: Chick Challenges {with Ippity}! This is the first sketch challenge and I'm excited as I can maybe start actually USING all these Ippity stamps I've hoarded! Short post today, I've been battling a cold all weekend...BOO! It's a long weekend too! Have a great week!

Unity Sketch

Just a quick post to add my card that I had done DAYS ago. :) It's for the Unity Sketch Challenge. I used fewer "bars" and flipped it. I love the centre stamp. Sorry, as usual it scanned a bit wonky..time I learned to take photos! ;)

Happy Sunday!

Buckle Up!

I used to belong to a kit club at a defunct place now. (Just Cre8). The kits were massive...and I still probably have a dozen. I'm very much an extreme shopper, slow crafter. ;) A few months ago I challenged myself to make as many projects as possible with a kit. The following layout is from a February kit and I think at last count I had 22 layouts and 8 or so cards made with it! That is impressive. It helps that I *loved* this kit. It was mainly Fancy Pants - Splendid.

In any case, as the supplies dwindled, the layouts got simpler. :) I really enjoyed this process. I only have a few scraps left that I'm going to try and NIL! Not enough for a layout but I'll add background paper..because I have a set of glitter alphas to use up. There's really not enough letters to spell anything!

Today, I just felt like sharing a layout. I don't blog stuff as soon as I make it, I'm not fast, I'm not regular. As my husband says... I'm consistently inconsistent! lol

Thanks for coming by as I slowly add things to my blog. :)
