Scrappy Clipboard


I created this clipboard for Unity Stamp Company's Hip Hop Scrappy Challenge, but didn't finish it until way passed the closing time. I still wanted to do it, because challenges help me think out of the box.

I had originally intended to use Unity's Polka Dot Left frame for another project, but instead went with something else, but I always keep elements on hand (especially if I have taken the time to cut them out!).

The background of the clipboard is covered with blue cardstock and stamped first with Staz-On White, then overstamped with Stampin Up! Chocolate Chip using Unity's Floral Swoop stamp and their Swirl Element stamp.

The flowers were leftover from my Butterfly Book project and the little piece of Stampin Up! ribbon came out of my leftover ribbon jar.

The chipboard measures 4 x 4.75. So, you might be wondering the same thing I was after I made it. What's it good for? So, squeezing the juices of my brain, and thinking..."It's a decorative object" over and over again....I thought...

Yeah, I could use it in a gift basket, hold little notes for myself at work (and it'd help me find it, because it would stand out against cubicle ivory!), or even throw it in a clear envelope with a letter as Naked Mail.

I like the Naked Idea! Okay, you all know I like the Naked part the best, but letters are fun too, right?

I have a dear friend that I'm sure it will cheer up! So, here it comes, you don't know who!

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.

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 with my project. It's …

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!
