Growing in Unity - Day 4 {Blustery}


Phew! It looks like I am going to make it!  Through my first week back at work...HA!  I've spent most of this first week staring at workflow diagrams trying to remember what I was supposed to be up to.  Oh, and missing my sweet little babies, who were shut in at home with far too much energy.

Todays project is a couple of tags that I whipped up.  So, on the left, I was suffering the recent snow we had this past weekend.  And on the right, I'm dreaming of Jupiter Beach in Florida, where the sea turtles winter.  I'd like to be on the beach, soaking up heat and sun, letting the sand warm my toes.

The stamps I used on the left tag include:

Mitten Weather Icons
Mitten Weather Flourishes
Snowflake Kisses
Snowglobe Wonderland

The right tag used far fewer stamp sets!  Only one, in fact:

Under the Sea

Only one more day, my friends, and we can say adios to the first week of 2013!  How is your first week of 2013 shaping up?

I'm sure it will be even BETTER if you were to win a couple itty bitty stamps from Unity, right?  So, be sure to leave me a comment so you have a chance!

I love making tags because you can make a design in no time. These are fabulous and fun! Great background, did you use Distress inks or paint?
Julie Odil said…
Great tags! Can I join you on the beach? I've never seen a sea turtle in the wild, but would LOVE to! I want details on the backgrounds of your tags. What did you use?

Beautiful tags, what great layers of color and depth you got on the backgrounds!

What a great idea... for every wintry creation, a hot-weather one! I may have to adopt that. :P Love the gorgeous backgrounds you've created, too.

Your tags are stunning!

I'm fascinated with the way you've created a winter scene as well as a summer scene with the same fabulous color scheme! With the brutal cold temps here in PA today, I'll dream of Jupiter Beach FL with sand warming my toes too! Great tags! Happy New Year too!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
