It's Friday & you know that means Unity Stamp Hip Hop Hangover. If you'd like to do the hop from the start head on over to the Unity Blog
I sure am having a great time creating with all the new Unity Stamps I ordered last week. My sweet hubby after 23 years knows how much I love my crafts & prefer practical gifts so for our anniversary he let me pick out some kits to add to my growing collection. I sell cards so he knows I'll make some money too in the long run (to buy more stuff lol shhhh don't tell)...
I don't know about you but I need some great paper & embellishments to go along with those new stamps so I filled up my cart & placed an order at Everything Scrapp'n. They are having a great Memorial Day sale. Get 35% off your entire order. Coupon code "memorial". This sale begins May 22 and end May 25 (midnight EST). I've got some great stuff in my basket. There is also a giveaway. For every $20 you spend you get one entry to win this cute tabletop tote. See Denise's blog post for photos.
I had a layout challenge to use stamped images as embellishments. I love the Unity butterflies that came in the September KOTM. The cut slightly distressed polka dots are perfect. Just stamp them on pattern paper, cut out & they are ready to go.
Now now week is complete without making a cute card. Here's a super quick one using the FOLK INSPIRED kit. As a quilter I will get a lot of mileage out of this set.
In honor of Memorial Day Cards For Heroes is doing a Blog Hop. I'm excited to be one of the stops on the hop. I hope you will join in & hop for heroes this weekend. It's a great cause that provides blank cards for our soldiers to send home. There are some great scrapbookers/cardmakers who are participating including: Jennifer McGuire & Nichol Magouirik
Hope you have a great Memorial Day. Take some time during all the fun to remember what it's all about - those fallen soldiers who served America so bravely & their ultimate sacrifice.
