HB2U- Friends with Flair.

Hello, TGIF!!
I love Friday's.. really I love Saturday's more but Friday means 2 things.. that Saturday is
coming soon and Friends with Flair.
Have you seen these new stamps.. Just released yesterday..
I was thinking what a great card for my son to give to his sister this year for her Birthday.
Even though it is in December, I know it is ready for him to sign.
I thought instead of an iphone , I would make this more an itouch ipod.
so for the younger kids wanting one this will be perfect.

For the background of my card I use a variety of washi tape.. makes the image stand out, and it is to easy to put together you can make several of these at once.  No cutting or pasting.. love that!!

Here are the new kits..
Modern chit chat.

I also love this Vintage Office a'la CUTE..
need to get this one inky soon.

Camera Mini FUN!!! HIP HOP

Hello all, it took me a bit to do this blog post,, I ran out of photo room and had to do some
deleting from old... really old photo's.. they made me laugh cause boy in 2009 I really
sucked big time at making cards.. so glad over the years I have improved..haha well I hope so!!
So yesterday I thought I was going to go the same route and make a card to show today,
well then in the back of my mind I thought "NOT" , I realized I have not inked up
the new Unity SMAK kit of the month
 " never a dull moment"
using some of my new stamp designs from the kit.. I made this ca-ute mini album.
trust me you will love this.. I know I do !!

I just love a kit that you can do more than just some layouts..
and this kit is perfect to let your
imagination go wild... 
 the stamps designs that are my images are the following..
the 4 scalloped borders,
 the circle Months,
the remember this moment forever,
 the large camera
the insta photo frame 
and the date arrow.
I am very excited to see these in rubber
and my post below will tell you just why!!
(beware lots of photo's but  they are all worth looking at)
I made this cute camera beach mini album
the cover is heat embossed on kraft paper and paperpieced
adding some touches of papers from Prima, washi tape
and some amazing sticker words from Authentique Paper.
I wanted to use the frames in all different  so I inked them up using memento mini ink pads
in different colours to match the papers, also inking up the dotted scalloped border to match.
and added some washi tape for another element.  
The photo's are all instagram other than one that is wallet size. I do at home printing
and can get 9 different photo's on one sheet of 8.5x 11 satin finish photo paper (staples brand)  

The different diecuts are from my Cricut carts, spellbinders and cuttlebug. I love the look of diecuts in white so you will see most of them are that colour.
To me it is just so fresh to see white with lots of colours on a page.

 For the insta frame if you want to put the scallops on like I did you will need 3 out of the 5 scallops, it works out perfectly and the left over 2 scallops I used them layering them on the side of the one
photo.. no wasting those great scallops!! haha

Those white flowers are from one of my cuttlebug dies..
and the tiny flowers are by k&company. they matched my inks perfectly..
I have to thank A Cherry on Top for those it was a gift with my last purchase...

I love these word stickers from Authentique..  and the month stamps..I must say I love how they look
in this mini album and will be using them alot in the future!!

Last but not least.. a random photo of the pages together.. .loving how it looks..
So this is just another wonderful way to use up these Unity SMAK stamps for this months kit..
hope you like it and if you are not a member yet you can sign up here.....
This kit will only be available for the next few days.. I believe on the 25th of this month
it will be featuring the new October SMAK kit.. so go grab it.. I know you will have some
fun with this one.. I know I am...

Now to check out who's next on the hop...
the beautiful and talented Jen Buck!!!

Master List today... short and sweet!!
Thanks so much for sticking with my post..
Have a wonderful Thursday.

Authentique and Petaloo Blog Hop.

Hello everyone, We have a fun Blog Hop with Petaloo and Authentique..
make sure you hop on over to the Authentique Blog and the Petaloo blog for lots of
Inspired projects.. leave comments to have a chance at a random giveaway.
I loved all the wonderful product provided by Petaloo.. it was the perfect match
to the "Enchanted" Collection of papers by Authentique.
I decided to do some fun magnetic clothes pins for my fridge.
so using the Enchanted paper I covered the clothes pins,
topping the top of the clothes pins with a punched out  web shape.

For the flower I punched out two 3 inch scalloped  round shapes,
 cutting a slit in every second scallop.
then I cut one in a 2 inch scalloped circle, distressed them and crumpled them so they were not so flat. I added some fun furry string in black and the beautiful Petaloo peony beaded flower in the center, adding some words from the Enchanted word stickers. then adding a
fun foam Petaloo spider in the corner..

Then the butterfly mummy..  I stuck the mummy down on the paper clothes pin, layering the butterfly, black flower and words on top. Using the strong 450 helmar glue.

My last mummy, I glued the flower on the paper clothes pin, adding the mummy and spider on his head, using the Enchanted word stickers to finish it off..

 These are fun and easy crafts to do with your kids or grand kids.. or do them yourself for your Halloween home decor. Hope you enjoyed this , make sure you check out the rest of the week for
more inspiration on the company blogs.
have a great day

Friends With Flair.. a little MLS love!!

Hello, Happy Friday!!
I have a wonderful card to share today using the new, just released yesterday stamps from
My Little Shoebox ... OMG.. I love this line of stamps and matching papers.. you will too..!!

So I have a confession.. I am a doily lover.. I need to own everything that looks like a doily.. so when I saw this stamp by My Little Shoebox.. I nearly leaped out of the chair to grab it off the computer screen. I love it that much.. So when it came in the mail I was very excited and had to ink it up right away... honestly this stamp looks like a find doily image.. the best one I have seen in a long time.

So here is the card I made.. using my versamark to ink up the image then heat embossing with some white embossing powder.. I so love how it turned out...
It looks amazing on this beautiful patterned MLS paper from the
  Cherry Delight collection !!

also using some paper flowers and diecuts from the same collection.. I love how this card all came
together.. so make sure you go check out this beautiful stamp and the matching papers from MLS.

For more Friends with Flair participants go to the Unity Blog for the linky tool participants.. if you also have a project using Unity stamps to share link it up today and any Friday.. we love to see your creations using the vast beauty of Unity Stamps.
hope you all have a wonderful Friday

Camping and a Card.

Hello everyone, it has been a wild weekend here.
 We decided to go camping.. which was good.
But, the evening of Friday the tailgate of the van hit me in the head....
 well let's say we didn't expect
to spend the first night in the hospital for 4 hours.
5 stitches later it is all good. 
 Then the next evening... our gazebo broke, because of the high winds up to 80 miles an hour..
 well let's say by Saturday evening we were booked into the Marriott hotel...
 well we tried... Is Camping for us?? not quite sure.. we are not giving up.
The camp site we had was gorgeous.. beach front, beautiful surroundings.. 
oh and flush toilets and a working shower.. very very clean...
I want to go back.. but maybe in the Summer instead of the Fall.
here are some personal photo's to share with you...
this is what we saw from our tent.. gorgeous!!

a nice couple took this family photo of us.. my kids and my god daughter.

Stitched up head.. ouch.. but healing
was glad they did not have to shave my head.

We had alot of rain and wind.. but that did not stop the ducks from taking walks.

Marriott Hotel.. wow.. this was beautiful.

sillies in the pool. they had so much fun!!
a good dinner at Swiss Chalet.. yummy..

the next day (Sunday) we headed to Fort Henry.. to learn some History..
it was quite fascinating.

the beauty of Kingston Fort Henry.

So that was our weekend.. we took alot of photo's and had alot of fun,
 even though I was injured we made the best of it..
So now for a Card... this is the newest Stamp of the Week.
I just love this Snow Family..
