 Mixed Media.. Friends with Flair!!
Hello Sweet's Friday.. woohoo
let the weekend start!!  Did you know Unity will be turning 4 in May.
well in good old Unity fashion.. we have a BIRTHDAY sale going on!!
it started yesterday and will continue into Sunday 11:59 pm cst.
For the occasion.. I made this piece of Canvas ART..  I had made on last summer
but sold it within minutes of my sister seeing it.. so I made on for my daughter.
I love my SYDNEY girl.. she is stunning like my little one.
  Here she is above.. all decked out in her Blues.. 
with flowers in her pretty hair and dress.
Adorned with butterflies & bling.
the papers are all from K&Company.. also the flowers and flourishes.
the stamps I used all Unity stamps..
Simple Stories, Christy Tomblinson, Unity grid and worn circles, IOD,
layering one stamp on top of each other,, with inks and paints.

 Using some Faber Castell big pitt pens to accent her outfit,
 distress inks and copics for her face..
Prima flowers and some buttons.. holding those with some Helmar 450 glue!!

I just love all her glory.

So time to check out more awesome inspiration with
Friends with Flair.. over on the Unity BLOG..
and make sure you go to the website to check out
the BIRTHDAY sale.. past KOM 2009-2011 for only $20.00!!!

Well Happy Hip Hop Thursday.. Unity style ...
cause we don't know how to go small on a hip hop..
make sure you check in the Unity Blog for all the happenings , sales, events..

wow.. I can't believe April is nearly over.. so I am showing off the April KOM
only 5 more days to sign up.. you will get some amazing stamps.. I think there is 41 in total..
the biggest stamp kit ever for Unity!!

I am sharing 2 simple cards today.. using 2 of the designs in this kit of the month
with 2 sentiments.. I just love making simple cards like these..

On both of these cards I used some clear glitter.. I just love how it looks on these images..
Here is the full kit in all it's glory!! 41 stamps.. WOW!!

sign up here... 

now onto some sneaks for the MAY KIT OF THE MONTH...
if you love the April you are going to flip for the May KOM..

Here are some designs I made for the kit..
I am jumping with joy to see these in RED RUBBER!!

the May kit is being called. " love in an instant"
woohoo.. just perfect I say..haha

this is the camera.. if you have been seeing some of the insta sales on the Facebook page
last week and more will be on later today as well ... so go check out Unity FACEBOOK
the art work is this stamp made by me..

now the deets.. even though it seems like one image.. it is actually 3 different ones.
so you have the Polaroid camera... love... then the Polaroid film  then you have the sentiment.
3 different stamps.. great for layouts, cards.. and the ever popular SMASH a holic.. like me!!

Then there are these dress forms.. I made these just fooling around, I had posted something similar with the feathers on my facebook page and with some encouragement sent these into Angela..
Well all three are in the May KOM... more love... haha.. in actual fact I have about 6 more sitting in my computer.. it is an addiction of mine.
That great sentiment is so perfect and it is from Joslyn Nielson..
by accident Angela had put this sentiment right near these dress forms and had a laugh.. I think it is
the perfect sentiment.. just the right amount of humor for these beauties!!

so if you are not a kit of the month member.. I would go sign up.. you get so many different styles of stamps .. all in one beautiful monthly package.. all red rubber, foam mounted, and made in the USA.
from start to finish.. Unity is the best.. oh and membership incentives... gotta love that!!

okay I will stop talking.. I get carried away... haha

SMASHaholics.. Art Tuesday!!

Hello Tuesday..
okay who else is obsessed?? At the beginning of the year I made a smash book.. using a varitey of scrap paper from my stash.. I now keep it for my images.. so I don't put photo's on my blog of it often.. cause it is more top secret until the images come to life..
But , then everywhere I turn I see someone smashing with the smash books from K&Company..
yes... iwant... ilove...ineed (well not really) ... but iwant is more like it!!
So when going to Scrapfest last Saturday I picked these 3 up.. it was a deal!!
I couldn't turn it down.. but now like any other obsession I have I want them ALL.. cause I am
strange like that.. so yes, more are coming my way and also my daughter's way so we can
SMASH together.. I got here the mini to play with.

I am so into making this work for me I even have a little SMACK area in my closet.. where I have all
my supplies in reach.. and can leave it out if I want to. it is high enough that little hands can't reach it.
Because we all know she is just dying too..haha Yes, I talking about you , Sydney!!

So my supplies are small in the SMASH area.. but I am happy to use the 3,000 + stamps I have in my Unity stash.. I can already see making some images for this purpose alone... hoping they will turn into stamps for future use..haha 
 Cause, this girl can't get enough of those either.

Now something from the past.. I am big into re purposing.. like the majority of my scrap room..
well I had these old (80's) pant hangers.. and this is what I am using it for now.. great for holding washi tape and now my dymo tapes.. ( suggestion from someone in the Smash group on facebook)
I love this.. and yes, it is lacking in tapes..

So I am working in my Pretty Pink Smash book for now.. I just started yesterday.. and here is my intro page.. Now this book is all about me.. so I will be using " Me Documented " the Unity SMAK kit in this for sure!! 

This Smash book will be more clean with collage style.. I am going to keep it as flat as possible.. I know wishful thinking here, but, I will try.  This will document my love, my hates, my passion, my like in whole.. up to now.. I am hoping to add some baby photo's of myself.. just need to hunt some down.  It will be fun to go back and look at years from now..
I am also hoping to get my mom to tell some stories of when I was small.. something with her hand writing and my dads as well.. I want to get as many facts as possible.

 I even have my Angie Girl in here.. love her...
so my adventure starts.. hoping I will do some video's in the near future to show you my process.. but for now I am still looking at video's myself..haha.

Now if you want to get all SMASHed Up with me.. go to OH MY CRAFTS!!!
they have some great prices on some smash books..

Well time to go back ... a SMASHING i will go...
hugs to all

Creating is FUN Mother's Day BLOG HOP.

 Hello everyone, welcome to another one of our fun blog hops.
Creating is Fun is also having a great 40% off sale as well
so make sure you go by the Zibbet store and shop for these great lace products!!

 here is the project I made today..
I think my Mom will like this alot!!
cause she is one FABULOUS woman!!

I decoupaged the frame using papers from the Fabulous line by Simple Stories..  the decoupage is by Helmar.. one of my favourite companies for adhesive and mixed media products like the decoupage.
 for Martha's lace I decoupaged it all on layering it on top of each other.. but the ends were left alone.. so just the tops of the lace were adhered.  I also put some scraps of lace in different
sizes and textures on the frame it self.. using the decoupage. this stuff holds the lace perfectly, but once dry you can still see the lace without the glue on top.. love that!!

I am the last on the hop.. and I am glad you stopped by.. but just incase you didn't start at the beginning go to Martha's blog.. she will have a list of all the participants today.
Now time to shop.. check out the Zibbet store for great deals.. and remember to leave a comment
one lucky winner will be picked from one of the blogs to win $25.00 gift certificate to the

have a great day

Ippity Release.. I just love it!! FWF

Good Morning everyone.. I hope most of you made it to last nights
Release Party over on the Unity Forum in SplitCoastStampers..
IT WAS AMAZING.. to say the least!!
Hopping like mad.. with so much inspiration that blew my mind!!
Thank you Unity Designers and Ippity Chicks for posting some
Gorgeous Projects.. which Angela will be pinning to the Unity Pinterest Board.

Here are my samples of my Newest stamps...
Angie Girl, and Bloom & Simplify
this is not a card, it is actually a cover of a box that will hold
  a mini memory album of last nights events!!

  Bloom & Simplify
this is all made on a piece of wooden cedar block.
It was from a class I took with the brilliant teachings of  Junelle Jacobson..

Let  your heart take flight
this was embossed onto a piece of ART canvas.
coloured in Faber Castell big pitt pens and gelato's ..

 Another card Angie Girl..
the girl is paper pieced, inked up and coloured with Faber Castell big pitt pens ,
 copics, white paint, and clear glitter,
 lace added was from Creating is Fun Zibbet shop..  

Now for the last stamp.. great for the men in our lives..
 also those amazing golf loving women...
like my other mother in law. FORE an Itty Bitty Ippity.

so seeing that this is an Ippity by Unity release.. it is different from just going on to the website and purchasing the stamps...

first you need to go to the Ippity by Unity sectiion.. it should be on the right hand corner near the top.
then you need to pick an Ippity Chick.. maybe it is someone you know.. maybe it is just a random name.. but you need to pick one.. ( you will in turn be helping a family , it is all good).. then once you have picked your Ippity Chick.. you can go ahead and make your purchase.. but you can also add Unity stamps in the mix as well..

Here is the DEAL on my stamp sets.. get all 3 stamp sets for only $40.00
okay that is AMAZING.. less than $15.oo each.. and you can buy the itty bitty seperatley .
Unity has the best parties and sales!!

Then there are all these  other amazing sales....


I tell you it is just amazing.. I just love Unity!!
also it is Friends with Flair Friday.. so go check out all the amazing creations
over on the Unity BLOG today!!

have a great weekend.. tomorrow is Scrapfest.. and I can't wait to see
some of you peeps..
