Flip Flop...Unity's Project Of The Week...

Wowza! They actually trusted me with a project of the week! Ok...don't let on that I have NO idea what I am doing! ;) I go trying to seem all knowledgable and stuff!

This project is inspired by Angela, Brooke, and AJ...can I get a Flip FLOP!...ok...I guess Chris and Ryan are responsible for the whole Hip Hop...but the gals turned it into Flip Flop. These guys are a RIOT!

This should be an easy one for all of you Unity stamp owners out there. You know those cute little wooden tags that come attached to your stamps? Well, we are going to make a little 'flip FLOP' book out of them.

...and here's the skinny....

Supplies needed:

1.) Printer Paper
2.) Book ring
3.) Two Unity wooden tags
4.) Red sticky tape and other adhesive
5.) paper and embellis
6.) Stapler

With me so far...told ya I was easy!

1.) Take some printer paper and cut it into strips that measure 3 X 3 3/8. Can as much as you would like for your book. Hey...I'm easy...make it as big or little as you would like.

2.) Now take a piece of card stock that measures 3 3/8 X 1 3/4 and fold this in half. This sheet will staple to the top of the printer paper you just cut. Set this aside.
3.) Now you want to embellish your wooden tags. I will play the elevator music now while you do yours. Hey, I figure you guys know how you like it. Just pick back up when you are ready....

...groovy tune, don't you think.....

4.) I covered mine with some awesome Cosmo Cricket paper. I so LOVE this paper! First I cut a piece that was slightly larger than my wooden tag...then I sanded down the sides to make it fit.

I'm using Flip For Fun....get it...'Flip'.....dork alert!

5.) I also used my silent setter to punch holes in the top of the tags...they are already there on the wooden ones. After you cover one side with your decorative paper punch the hole so that you have that for a guide with the other side.
6.) Now use your sticky strip to put your paper on one of the tags.
7.) Attach your book ring to both sides.

8.) Finish with a little ribbon...and viola!'s pretty close to being's just really slapping some paper on the thing. How easy can you be!
I hope y'all get a chance to play. You know you've got those Unity tags just lying around screaming for some love! Why not put the stamps and the wood to use! When you are finished you will have a super cute little 'flip FLOP' notepad ready for your purse or car. I know I am always in need of something to write on! Now maybe I can give my hand a break! Do you know how often I write on it! More than I would care to admit!
Hope you are all doing well! I look forward to posting you soon! From convention if all goes well! Hey! I'm not going to promise that one again! I was sure that I would be able to in Chicago and we know how that went! I will promise that I have posts scheduled for the next few days. When I get back I will hopefully have lots of great pictures to share from Utah. ...I still can't believe I am going to fly! Freaking out just thinking about it!
Have a good one!

Can I get a flip FLOP!

A New Release From Unity

Yay!!! It's release day! I can finally share some new stamps! Sorry for the sneaky peek yesterday! I really hate being a tease! ;)
Here's a card I made using one of the new Diva sets. If I am totally honest, I would have to tell you all that I made this card wearing my tiara. If I was going to be honest I would say that! Well...let's just skip that....I can't have you thinking that the diva thing went to my head! ;)
Moving on...taking the tiara off of my head....shhhh....

Another Page Plans Challenge

Chris and Lesli have definitely been keeping me on my toes this month! Last week they had the team create both a card and layout. I love sketches and I love to scrapbook but for some reason combining the two is a HUGE challenge for me! But all in all I think it turned out ok.

A couple of weeks ago I got the coolest little package from them in the mail. A challenge! When I opened this package I found this.....

Oh my goodness! Our challenge this week was to use the items that came in this package for our sketches. Well, there was so much stuff I could have probably made about 12 cards! Since I am still catching up from last weekend I opted for one! I would like to say that I will come back to it and make something else this week but I am supposed to be heading to Utah for the Stampin' Up! convention later in the week....all that is hanging on the flight...well, you know where this is going!

Oh yeah, back to the card....I LOVE these little owls! I couldn't resist using them! Here's my card for this weeks Page Plans sketch....

LOVE those owls! Thier little jiggly eyes are the cutest! Be sure and head over to Page Plans. It was so much fun to see what everyone created with these supplies....we all got the same package...I think I forgot to say that earlier!

I am off! I have so much stamping to do! ...a class tomorrow night, Unity has a release coming up on the 30th! rubbah! I am loving all of the new images!....and then out of town the 31st....if all goes well! I will bring my computer this week and share from Salt Lake...again...if I can actually get on that plane! I am really excited to meet so many of my SU friends and I still cannot believe I am actually going to have dinner with Shellie Gardner! How cool is that!'s also pretty cool that I will be getting an early copy of the catalog! Oh my goodness! That's a TON of motivation to fly but I don't know!

Hope you are all having a great day! I will post you all soon!

Simply Christmas In July

It's that time of week again! Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply time...#45! Our challenge this week...Christmas in July! The first thing I thought of when I heard this was my Papertrey Believe set and since I just received my new Papertrey...minus the little owl...he's on backorder! Ahhh!....but I used my dark chocolate card stock and ribbon and a piece of the dotted paper that came in the little paper pack.

Wait??? Chocolate and red???? Yup....why not? Anyway, here's the card....

What do you think? I really like the brown and red for Christmas. Be sure and check out the rest of the Stamp Simply team....Julie, Dee, Tammy, Janine, and Becky.

Hope you are all doing well! I must get busy on another card. I have three started on my desk. Of course, my desk currently looks as if a scrapbook store exploded on it! I know they are there somewhere!

Post you all soon!

...sorry...completely forgot to add....his beard and the trim of his hat and suit is covered in liquid pearls. I really love this product. After his beard dried I went back and added more dots for a bit more dimension.

Bling-edy, Bling

Bling! Gotta love the bling! It's such a fav of mine! For my card this week over at Page Plans I pulled out my Cupcakes a'La Yummy from Unity and blinged it up! ...add a little Cosmo Cricket and you get....

Gotta love the bling! I think I could cover an entire card with this stuff and be happy! ...Oh, wait...I think I've done that before!

Ok, I'm off to catch up on some things around here. I have some super cute RAK to be posting today. Can't wait to share. I am also going to have a stamping fest at some point today. So much to do!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! I will post you soon!

More From CHA!

Ok...I really need to start posting some cards but what can I tell you!...I'm having a hard time getting back in the groove! Tonight I am working on another Great Swap Girl Stampin Up stuff didn't arrive until the night before I left for CHA so I have had no time to work on this and it's due on Wednesday!

I'm taking a quick break from a card that is going no where fast to post a few more pictures....

On day one I saw Tim Holtz. Yup I asked if he would mind me taking a picture and then was so star struck that I took it of him doing his demo! Dork alert!
See the grin...he was totally laughing! He's so cute!

Here's another one of my favorite people. I absolutely love Joanne Basile. She is just the sweetest! How excited was I when she came up to the Unity booth! I was really looking forward to meeting her!

Isn't she a cutie!

What an exciting day this was! While I was walking around I saw Taylor VanBruggen! She could so be a model! She's super tall and BEAUTIFUL! I'm thinking that card making is just her side job!

Isn't she stunning! Talented, sweet and so pretty!

...and another super pretty and talented gal....Jen Balcer! I was completely star struck! I so love her! She is super talented and I love reading her blog.

I also met Sharon Harnist....

...this gal has mad skills! I so love all of her tutorials! Oh my goodness! All of these gals are the total package! Creative, sweet, beautiful! ...I am so star struck!

I had the great pleasure of having dinner with the Papertrey crew on Friday night. Can you believe it! Sitting at a table with all of these super talented gals! Ohmygoodness! It was an amazing time!

Ok...this one is a little blurry but I had to share the super cute flip FLOPs that Angela picked up for all of us....

How fun are these!

Here's the Unity gals with a couple of our new friends at dinner on Saturday night....

...another sort of blurry one but it's the best I have with the Diva herself! How exciting to meet her! Unity is coming out with a line of stamps for her and she was there doing the make and takes every day. What a sweet gal!

That's all I have for now. I am off to try and salvage this skunky card! ;) I hope you are all doing well and having a wonderful night! I will post you with something card/project related tomorrow...hopefully! ....and probably a few more pics!

Have a great night!

CHA Pictures Part Two... MIL is still visiting so I haven't had a chance to get any stamping you know how hard that is! I was lucky enough to bring a few Unity goodies home with me and waiting to play with them is killing me! I thought I would share a few more pictures of the super sweet gals I met this weekend....

I truly feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to attend CHA. I am so excited about everyone I met! I spent Friday totally stalking Sharon Johnson! You know I could not wait to meet her! Voila! Here she is at the SCS cupcake dinner....

How pretty is she! I so love her and I'm guessing at this point she realizes just how nuts I am! I think I almost knocked her over giving her a hug! ;)

...and since we are on the subject of the ever so fabulous Sharon! How about this little cutey!

Yup...that would be the ever talented Dee Jackson! So excited to meet her! I actually got to see Dee every day of CHA so I got to chat quite a bit with her. She is such a sweet gal. I adore her! about another one of the Unity team....

Check out those two Unity hotties in the background! The Unity guys were all the talk!

And how excited was I to meet the one and only Gina K! Oh my goodness! She's even prettier in person! ...and just the sweetest thing ever! LOVE her!

Ok...I think I might have actually liked the tiara! It's not every day that you can get away with wearing one of those! Hmmm....I think that it might complete the perfect ensemble for diaper duty. What do you think?

You know one of the people that I am completely in love with! She's one of the sweetest gals that I have had the pleasure of meeting since I started stamping. That would be Lori Craig. She's just beautiful and so sweet and she's even more beautiful and even sweeter in person! I love her! more for today....How excited was I when I saw Carolyn King....Cammie herself! Well, I could hardly contain my excitement! ...and then the one and only Carole Burrage is there! Oh my goodness! I was definitely a bit overwhelmed! I so adore both of these gals! Check this out....

Can you believe I took off the tiara for this one! Hey, how can you compete with these gals! Aren't they beautiful! I must confess to feeling totally like the soul sister of Caroles. We choose the same names...we like the same book....Yup...we're twins!

Well I guess I better go spend some time with the family. I hope you are all doing well. It is my sincere hope to get some stamping done tonight. I was lucky enough to come home with some new rubbah! Can you believe that is has sat on my desk all day untouched! It's a bit of a crime!

Post ya soon! :)

Purple Flowers....

Ok...purple and a bit of flowers! :)

Happy days it's time for Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge! LOVE stamping simply! It's the name of the game! ;) It especially works for me this week! It's been a crazy one!

This weeks challenge is so super don't have to use purple flowers...just use flowers and the color purple and you are in! I used my Papertrey Bitty Baby Blessings paper...the sheet with the flowers....ding! And I used lavender moon...ding! Woohoo! :) The really cool part of this paper is that I actually ordered the 12X12 and the 6X6 so I was able to paper piece the same background on my Unity sucker but with smaller images. FUN!

Here's my card for this Stamp Simply #44 (ssnotime44).....

Be sure and check out the rest of Sharon's team....Julie, Tammy, Becky, and Janine...Dee is out at CHA already! Lucky girl! I'm still hoping my hubby's flight doesn't get cancelled! I cannot wait to head over in the morning! :)

One More Quick Papertrey...And An Update...

Hey you guys! Feels kind of like I fell off the face of the earth. This has been the craziest of days. I've had about a billion and one things to do before I leave for CHA...nope I'm not gone yet! I'm getting so excited I cannot even tell you! How exciting to meet so many of the wonderful friends I have made in real life! I am bringing my camera and will take so many pictures to share. I'm guessing there will be some pictures of at least some of the exciting new items out there! I'm pretty excited about seeing all of that as well!

A couple of things....first how excited was I when I went to Nichole Heady's blog this morning and saw my Halloween set received an honorable mention from this months contest! Wowza! I floated on a cloud all day! All of the projects are amazing! usual! I so love seeing what everyone comes up with each month.

Next...I'm so excited that I will soon be teaching classes over at my LSS. Woohoo! How excited was I about this! I cannot tell you! My first class will be in October! Very exciting!

Ok...I was going to post something with my new Stampin Up....but then what with the Papertrey thing and all...I decided to post something with their stamps. Somehow....I have NO idea how! But somehow I never posted my entry from last months contest! How is that even possible!? No, I'm not holding out on you. I think I just completely forgot!

Anyway, this is a little baby scrapbook I made using the Bitty Baby Blessings stamp set and paper.

The first two pages look like this.....The next two look like this....I will confess that this is a favorite of mine. The cover has a slight smudge.....Hayden. I was pressed for time and didn't have a chance to fix it. Talk about being bummed! Oh well, I need to keep a better eye on the finished stuff!

Anyway, I am off to bed! It's been a long day! My MIL will be here tomorrow to help with the kids while I am gone. I will be posting while there. I am scheduling both my card for Sharon's challenge on Friday and my Page Plans card for Sunday. I will also try and check in while in Chicago to give you guys updates on all of the goodies and share some pictures.

I hope you all have a wonderful night! I will post you soon! :)

Happy Halloween???

hee hee....Yes, I's July....I keep bringing you guys these seasonal somethings! Sorry...I am just getting all excited thinking about fall! What the heck is up with that!

Don't get me wrong! I am LOVING summer! It's super fun and we are having a great time! I just start to get all ready for all things fall and winter really soon! Eh...whatever...

So today I am going to share with you a little something I put together with my Papertrey stamps. I used Spooky Sweets and Polka Dot Basics for this.....
Can I just share what a bear this was to photograph! Holy Moly it was sharp of lighting so the green dots didn't look green and it looked like there was a spray of glitter all over the front! get the idea.

Hope you are all having a great summer! day! I will post you all soon!

Page Plans Sunday!

It's time for another fun Page Plans sketch! This weeks sketch was created by Renee Morris-Dezember. It's such a fun sketch!....

Well, I got to thinking about Christmas cards again. I'm totally on the Christmas kick! This is why by November I don't even want to think about anything relating to Christmas and am sick to death of red and green! ;)

...hopefully that won't happen this year! I guess if it does the good thing will be that my cards should all be finished!

Here's my card for this week....

I used the same set that I used for my ornaments from yesterday. This is one of my favorite Christmas sets! I really love the artsy feel of the images. So very cute!

I hope you are all having a great Sunday! We just ran in from's a beautiful day here! The weather is not to warm and the sun is shining! The beetles are still, however, flying! YUCK!

Have a great one! We are off to enjoy this beautiful day! Hope you are doing the same! :)

Christmas Ornaments

Every week Unity has a 'project of the week'. This weeks hostess is Unity's guest designer for July, Elizebeth Neuman. For this challenge you were to use polymer clay to create a piece of jewelry. You can find more information and specific details here. I will talk you through my creation...although I opted to make Christmas ornaments instead of jewelry. Here goes.

Here is the list of supplies I used to create my ornaments:

2.) Unity Stamp company stamp kit Fun Night Out....wait...what's this??? I'll explain in a bit!

3.) Polymer clay...I used the 'pearl' one.

4.) Rolling pin

5.) Hobby blade

6.) Versamark graphite black ink

7.) Embossing powder

8.) Heat tool

9.) copic markers

10.) liquid, white

11.) gold stickels

12.) wire

That's it! Yeah...all stuff I'm sure is just lying around your stamp room! ;) Ok...I was actually shocked that I had polymer clay! I bought it when I first started stamping. It was something that SU sold and I thought I would try and figure out how to use it and it's sat on a shelf ever since! Good to know I really think through my purchases!


1.) Roll out your clay

2.) Stamp image on a piece of scrap card stock...I of course have none since I cleaned up...I actually used a new sheet...and then threw away the rest! ***Ravengirl...once I get back from CHA and convention I will get my act together and give away my scraps! That never occurred to me! Thanks for the suggestion! I would much rather see you use them than line the bottom of my trash can! .... off track there....

3.) cut out the stamped image and place on your clay...then cut out with your hobby blade...this stuff cuts like butter!

4.) snip a piece of wire and bend ...then insert into your clay

5.) place on wax paper and bake in 275 degree oven for 15 minutes.

6.) Stamp image on clay and emboss as usual

7.) Color in image....

*****After reading my own instructions I think I will take a few more pictures tomorrow and post them...sorry about that. There are some steps you may want to see that are different that Elizebeth's.

Here's my final project... look at that tree! Do you see how some of the ornaments look like olives! Now you see why I had to pull out Fun Night Out! How can I have the set without the martini glass!

Oh my heck! What does that say about me! ***hick

just kidding! ;)

Ok...I hope you all get a chance to play with this one. It was definitely more time consuming than a card but well worth it! I really enjoyed doing this and think this would make great gifts this year.

I hope you are all having a great weekend! I am off to bed! It's been a long day! I have so much to do before Friday! CHA this week! woohoo! I am so excited to be heading to Chicago! I am really looking forward to meeting so many of my online stamping friends! I will post lots and lots of pictures for all of you!

Hope you have a great night I will post you in the morning! :)

Uno! Dos! Tres! Thankyou!

:) Stamp Simply time again! One of my favorite times of the week! :) This weeks challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to create a thank you card. don't have to make 'tres'...but thank yous are pretty simple so why not?

I am so excited about this challenge this week! I can always use another thank you...or three! But, this week I have spent sooo much time cleaning and organizing my stamping space. I have completely re-done the whole thing! Part of that meant cleaning out my 'scrap' drawer(s). I never use the I am not sure why I save them! I decided while doing all of this organizing to use up an entire sheet of paper when I pull it out. If that means creating two or more of the same card then that is what I am going to do. This will explain my trio of cards....

I used the same stamp set for this one. It's from Unity Stamp Co. and called Floral Fantastical. The paper is Crate Paper and all from the same kit. I used one 12X12 for all three...there was a bit leftover...not sure what I am going to do with that because part of my new thing is to not have anything left to save! is the first's the most EPLS of the bunch....

Then came this little number.....

...and finally......

That's it for me....I'm so excited that I used almost the whole thing...I won't tell you that I may throw out the rest! Look if I don't I will end up with chaos again! I can't deal with that!'s for the best!

Be sure and check out the rest of Sharon's team...Julie, Dee, Tammy, Becky, and Janine. If you get a chance to play...and you don't have to make three! ;) be sure and upload somewhere and link on Sharon's blog...if you upload to SCS be sure and use the keyword ssnotime43.

...and I'm off! It's late and I am soooo tired! I will post you all tomorrow! Have a great one! :)

A Purple Papertrey Christmas!

It's time for another Christmas card! I LOVE making these! Today's is using one of my favorite Christmas sets ever...of course, is there a Christmas set I don't LOVE! ;) This one is called Believe. I also used my Guidelines paper for this. Yup...a purple Christmas card!

Here it is...

I used my liquid pearls on the tree as well. LOVE the liquid pearls!
Ok...that's it for now. I am off to work on my card for Sharon's challenge tomorrow. I hope you are all having a fantabulous day! ...and I will post you soon! :)

Let's Recycle!

Have you ordered from Unity yet? No, I'm not trying to be a high pressure salesman here...I am just wondering if you have seen the really cool packaging and the little 'extras' that come along with your order. When I got my first order, I opened up the box to find the most beautiful organza bags....that's what the unmounted rubber pieces come in...and the wood mounted ones are all attached with a plastic 'thread' and they all have this extra wooden tag. Even the handles come with a wooden tag already inserted inside of them. Like this....

You remove your wooden tag and have your handle...this is the d size handle...and acrylic block. EPLS...I can show you more about that at a later time....for now, I am concentrating on the free tag! I LOVE free! ...
I pulled the tag out and wondered what to do with it. You don't have to keep storing it in the handle. What would be the point of that? What would I do? Throw it away?! NO WAY! I decided to alter it. I actually decided to make a little notepad that I could use in the garage for my landscaping notes. I used Floral Fantastical for this set and my favorite papers of all time! Crate Paper...I'm not sure what line this is from but's Crate Paper! I LOVE those papers! Here's my little something....

I colored this in with my Copic markers and distressed it with my Antique Linen distress ink. I did add some pearls to the side can never go wrong with pearls! I added a magnet strip to the back so the whole thing will hang on the fridge in the garage.

Oh the possibilities! If you have ordered and have some of the laying around I would love to see what you come up with. If you don't, now is a great time to find out. There is a sale over at Unity right now! You can find out more at the Unity blog.

I hope you all had a wonderful day! I'm off to bed! It's been a great day!...but a LONG day! I will have to take some after pictures when I am all finished downstairs. I posted a before...without really realizing was a wreak! I've been working for the last two days cleaning and wouldn't believe the difference! I'm so tired I can hardly move! ...and I am suffering withdrawals! I really haven't gotten to stamp much! I am hoping to finish tomorrow so I can get lots of stamping in. I NEED that!

Hope you all have a wonderful night and I will post you soon!
