Ho Ho Ho - Let it Snow!

Hi!  Today I'm participating in a fun blog hop featuring projects and inspiration from two awesome companies, 3GirlJam and Pinque Peacock!  If you are already participating in the hop, then you came here after visiting Jessica.  Aren't her creations just lovely?
However, if were unaware, then you'll want start at the beginning, over on the 3GirlJam blog.  Why, you ask?  Because there are some really nice prizes for those who participate!  Be sure to leave comments on all the participating blogs so that you'll be eligible to win.  You don't want to miss out on this one!  Prizes include a $15.00 gift certificate for the 3GJam blog and a $15.00 gift certificate to Pinque Peacock.

The hop is open for comments until Sunday Dec 9. So if you don't have time to do it THIS SECOND, then you have some time to hop and take in all the creative goodness!  All weekend long.
Winners will be announced on Wed Dec 12th.  Be sure to check the 3GirlJam blog to see if you won!

The last stop on the hop is the 3GJ Challenge blog. The theme will be Christmas Inspirations- anything goes.  If you have anything holiday related, take a moment to link up your project on the blog!  There are going to be LOTS of great prizes.

A bit about my project...

I decided to make a tag.  I have seen several making their way on the scene and I thought I would join in the fun.  This will probably attach itself to one of the knitting projects I am making for gifts this year.

Ribbon:  The wonderful ribbon is my favorite from the Summer Sprinkles ribbon from the Seasons Bundle

Stick Pins:
Those wonderful stick pins are new products from Pinque Peacock.  These are really awesome handmade items that are unique and individual.  You can't find these anywhere else!  See an array of available pins HERE.

The awesome little deer is from Unity Stamp Company set, "Mitten Weather Flourishes".
The stamped snowflakes in the background (stamped in silver and white and embossed) and the "Let it Snow" are from another Unity set, "Mitten Weather Icons".

Alot of the other embellishments (vintage buttons, linen thread, chunky glitter) are from Stampin Up! and Sizzix dies of various types.  I also used my oh so favorite paint, "Blue Ice", from Creative Inspirations.  The tag was painted with watercolor inks and topped with Mod Podge after the embossed snowflakes and white snowflake die cuts were added.  For such a pretty little item, you should see the explosion of products that were all over my craft area when I finally completed it.

And now I need to make a few more...but not until I have a chance to visit everyone's blogs!  Well, that's it for me.  Next up on the hop is OmaGloria's blog.  I'm sure she will have something absolutely wonderful.

Have a wonderful day!

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!
