Unity & Cosmo!

What a wonderful combo....Unity & Cosmo Cricket. I'm so excited about the new line of stamps that Unity has released for Cosmo Cricket. They are absolutely adorable and you know I LOVE that they match everything in their corresponding lines! LOVE it! I've got a few projects to share with you today.

First up a layout using the 'Get Scrappy With' Material Girl kit. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this one! I actually used some of the Garden Variety paper for my layout but it was just what this one needed. Take a peek.....

Here's a close up.....

I stamped the journaling block and then paper pieced the tip of it and added a little stitching. I ended up trimming it and adding it as an embellishment once it was all said and done.

Next up a card with the Material Girl kit. I LOVE the little sewing machine in this kit. The paper for this one is from the Material Girl line....

The buttons are also Cosmo Cricket and from the Garden Variety line.

The next card is an EPLS {easy peasy lemon squeezy} card using the Garden Variety kit. I added a bit of recycled kraft card stock to this one.....

I colored the tomato with my Copics and added a simple ribbon.

That's it for me today. Now it's time to head over to my sweet friend Natalie's blog.

Next Blog

Enjoy the rest of the hop! :) I will post you soon! :)

They are truly a family. This week has so many fun challenges and games and NEW stamps...sooooo much Unity goodness! Happy Times!

I've got a sample with one of my favorite new Unity kits, Heart Times. Take a peek.....

How sweet are those little Rx bottles! LOVE this set! It's the cutest! I picked up some new paper at a new scrapbook store while doing a little shopping after the Copic class {more to come on that later...what a FUN time!} The paper is from the Lush line from My Minds Eye. I colored the image with my Copic's and used this weeks CPS sketch as a starting point.
