Hip Hopping with the Sneaks and CHA!!!

We are on day 4 of our Sneak Peeks of the upcoming August kit of the month and glimpses of the new releases that are coming out at CHA from Unity Stamp Co. 
Aren't they all awesome?!?! 
The releases get better and better....
I have NO IDEA how Angela and her amazingly talented artists continue to do it!?! 

Today we are Hip Hopping with Miss Melody Ross' gorgeous stylings! 
I just LOVE her designs and was looking at her latest scrapbooking kit, One Precious Life, and felt the NEED to play with that gorgeous bicycle image.

This is another piece of art for Kat's bathroom area like the piece that I designed last week. I had no idea when I bought this kit that I was going to do Kat's whole bathroom design around it, but I am LOVING these pieces!

This piece measures 12x12 and is in a shadow box frame which I love because I do like to get a little dimensional with my art. ;o)

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. One Precious Life
*K&Co. paper (purple base and large b&w polkadots)
*Making Memories ledger paper
*MME paper frame
*Tim Holtz book plate
*7gypsies metal tag
*Making Memories journaling piece and ribbon and brads
*Pink Paislee journaling block
*Bo Bunny brad (pink one)
*calendar block (from ??)
*watercolor pencils
*7grrrls (no longer in business) corner punch
We are also still showing sneak peeks from the upcoming August kit of the month and today's image is my favorite from the kit, so I had to create something with it.

I was trying to channel my inner-Eva when I made this card. Hehe! That girl can rock the shabby chic style!

*sigh* I just love stamp images that incorporate ledger paper-looking backgrounds. I think that they speak to my geek-side that loves to get lost in the office supply store. ;o) It makes for such a romantic image, don't you think? Or am I just a total geek? LOL...maybe you shouldn't answer that!

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. August kit of the month
*October Afternoon Thrift shop paper
*Making Memories flower trim
*Sizzix Die cut
*Fiskars border punch
*KaiserCraft flat-back gem
*Martha Stewart seam binding
*flat back pearls
