Hi...Hello....Hiya...Hola


This is probably one of the simplest designs I've ever put together, but in creating it, I have to admit that it probably took several hours of mulling over exactly where to put the ribbon, what color ribbon to use, where to put the design background, and the placement of the "Hi" stamp. But when all is said and done, think of the possibilities you can do with this clean and simple layout!

I really need to use and take advantage of all the layout designs other artist do, because coming up with my own is extremely time intensive. I'm sure this is simple enough that it isn't new - just new to me. But as picky as I am about the way a finished piece looks, I wonder, tho, because I'd still fret over the colors and details!

Anyway, I'm putting it here to remind me to use this again in the future. It doesn't look like it, but that one card was a real 4 hours of work!

I should make about a-gazillion more to use just so it can pay for itself when I go to send a card to someone, eh?

Isn't it funny that sometimes the simplest cards are the hardest to put together? The next gazillion will be a breeze. :)

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered. People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm. Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around. You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult. A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors. And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people. What's Your Rising Sign? Well, okay, I don't know about stable. And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm". But the rest, yeah.

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of th
