Angie Girls Release and a Unity Blog Hop

Time for another Unity Blog Hop.  This week we have some fun new releases by Unity... more Angie Girls!  I love the Angie Girls, so fun to paper piece!

First up I used the new Miranda girl with the As You Wish Collection by Fancy Pants.  I created a gift card holder... who wouldn't love a gift card to a liquor store?!  

Next up, how fun is Esmeralda?!  I love that sentiment!  I created a shaped card using my Silhouette and then paper pieced Esmeralda with the Thirty One collection by Pebbles, love her outfit!

Because I need mailable cards...

I played around just for fun again.  I love the Mixed Company collection by Heidi Swapp.  LOVE the blue roses!  I also used my MFT Chicken Wire die and a Kerri Bradford cut file.  Finally finished it off with a sprinkling of some MME Enamel dots.  Another effort to create a flatter, more mailable card!

Although I swayed a bit (well, quite a bit) from the sketch, I was inspired by this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:

Homemade with Love Recipe Page

A friend of mine is going to a shower on the weekend.  Each guest has been asked to bring an 8 X 8 recipe page.  She asked me if I would make it for her.  I knew which papers I was going to use as the Homemade with Love by Carta Bella has been calling for awhile now! ;)  I made a pocket and the top recipe card is just attached with the clothespin.  That way my friend can write her recipe on it and it is removable.  I used a few Unity Stamps for some accents, love the coffee stain.

Beautiful You

I played along with a couple of challenges today using the Save the Date collection by Teresa Collins, my Silhouette and some PTI dies.

It has been a difficult year to say the least, but I do think that things are turning around... which means the crafting mojo is slowly coming back!  Yay!

I played along with the Fusion challenge, using the sketch, colors and flowers.

Also the Curtain Call challenge, the colors and the shelves were my inspiration.

Every Picture Tells a Little Story

I am up on the My Mind's Eye Blog today with this Market Street Layout.  I love the touches of gold in the collection.  For more detail on the story behind the photo, please hop on over to the MME Blog!

The title is from Jillibean Soup.

SMAK/LOL Saturday on Unity Blog

I went out of my box today and used my Gelatos again... not sure if I will become addicted, I still love my pattern paper ;)  My project is up on the Unity Blog so hop on over there to see how I upcycled a garage sale wooden plaque as I have more details and close ups over there.

Styleboard Smile

Playing just for fun today.  I used my Styleboard collection by Crate Paper, it is so pretty, along with some PTI stamps and of course a Silhouette cut and some Divine Twine.

I was inspired by this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

A little Me-ology

I was up on the Fancy Pants Blog the other day with my interpretation of this month's sketch challenge.  I hope that you play along!

I used the me-ology collection, LOVE this one (I even have it on my wish list for more!).  I just went to work layering all the fun bits and bobs in the collection.  I love all of the different items, buttons, chipboard, tags, envelopes....

I then stamped some of the Unity sentiments from the Me Documented SMAK kit from Unity and added a Silhouette cut file to the title.

I am all over clothes pins these days! ;)

Shabby Chic Hello

I was up on the My Mind's Eye Blog yesterday with this card that I created for the sketch this month.  I just loving using the Record It Pretty Things collection, it just makes my heart happy. I love the Shabby Chic feeling of it.

Be sure to check out the MME Blog to see the sketch and play along!  Perhaps you will be this month's winner!
