Hippity Hop Unity Peeps!!!

This week, DH and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. It was also Father's Day so I was making purely masculine cards for Dh to show him how much I appreciate him and all that he does for us. This card is one of those that I made using this month's Kit of the month, All Smiles.
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. All Smiles
*Crate paper collection
*Fiskars border punch
*jute string
*Nestabilities Lacey Die
*Palette Burnt Umber ink pad
*corner rounder

I based my card layout upon this month's Sketch For You to Try.

An easy Father's Day Card...

It's Father's Day and I couldn't locate any father themed stamps in my stash (how is that possible?!?!) so I set about finding some stamps that I could use as simply a masculine card and found these from the Fly Free kit. I think that works for a Fathers Day card for my dad...

Supplies used:
*Unity STamp Co. Fly Free
*Cosmo Cricket paper line
*nestabilities labels
*jute string
*watercolor pencil
*StazOn jet black ink pad

Happy Father's Day everyone!!!

I adore you for FWF!

Good morning Unity Peeps! 

I got a peek at what the $5 feature was going to be for FWF today (I Adore You) and thought that I would play a bit with it. Next week is DH and mine 19th wedding anniversary so thought this might be a fun card to give to him for it....

It's a very simple card and I think that the dictionary paper with the kraft makes it masculine enough to give to my DH...

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. I Adore You
*Echo Park paper collection
*vintage dictionary paper
*StazOn jet black ink pad
*vintage buttons
*Nestabilities die cut

Be sure to check out all the FWF participants on the Unity Blog.

A Vacation Portfolio

I am up on the Unity Stamp Co blog today and this is a copy of that same post...

At this point in my life, I have over 20 scrapbook albums and I don't really want too many more, so I look for other ways to commemorate important events throughout the year. We are getting ready to go on vacation. This is a huge family vacation with lots of the extended family so I was looking for a way to do a quick little album/memorabilia storage from the trip and came up with the 7 gypsies portfolio (I used the medium size.)
One of the reasons why I like these so much is that they are expandable so I can stuff them full of ephemera and little thumbnail photos from the trip.
Because this was a fairly large project, there are a LOT of photos and materials used on this. I am going to list the Unity stamps used in each individual photo for easier explanation.

For the cover, I used several different stamps. The band under "VACATION" there is from the Carnivale Alpha kit. The date at the end of the band is from the Sophisticates Notes kit. You can also see just the edge of the Family sentiment there and that is from last month's kom, Think Happy Thoughts.

That swirl is from the Art & Soul kit.

The family edge is from Starts & Ends with Family. The flower is from last month's kom, Think Happy Thoughts.

The interior flap has Insightful Meadows stamped in it and a little sack (for memorabilia) with the bird from last month's kom, Think Happy Thoughts.

The summer tag is stamped using this month's KOM, ...all Smiles.

There is a library pocket tucked into the small file folder (for memorabilia) and it is stamped using this month's kom, All Smiles.

In the background there you can see the Unforgettable Moments stamp. The banner is from the Welcome Baby kit. 

There's no stamping in this interior section, but there is a big ribbon where larger photos and ephemera can be tied into the book.

I hope that you like this idea for a bit of a different scrapbook. I will try to remember to share it again after I have filled it!
