Hip Hop

Happy Hip Hop!

I am so excited about today and all of the BEAUTIFUL new Unity stamps. There is a BEAUTIFUL new KOTM...and a BEAUTIFUL new stamp kit. It's a little bit of heaven!

Well, I guess I was a bit overwhelmed. I did not know where to begin! Ok...so that is a GREAT spot to be in! I'm feeling really lucky!

So this week is all about babies!

First up, I got in the Christmas spirit...yeah, in spring...but it fits! Baby Jesus! Here's my first card with the new KOTM....

I LOVE this stamp. I can imagine it in so many different ways. I chose to use it for a Christmas card...one that could easily be mass produced. Hmmm....I may have my Christmas cards already!

Next up, my layout. This one started with the new stamp kit and then just sort of morphed into something else. The photo is one I took of Carter hugging Hayden in the stroller. Carter loves doing this...still to this day and Hayden it's over a year later! Once I started putting everything together I knew I had to use the 'beautiful memory' stamp. This will always be one of my favorite memories of two of my babies.

I opted to print the picture in B&W and then use a white backdrop with very subtle paper and clear embellis. This is truly one of my favorite pages.

...and a somewhat quickie baby card...

How cute is that buggy! :) LOVE it!

Now hope on over to the super talented AJ Otto. I will catch you all in the forums! :)
