Happy Holidays to all of you!!! I hope none of you are quite as snowed in as we are here. Be sure to check out all of the great deals at UNITY by clicking on the link to the right.
Here I am on another Friday using the same great snowman stamp by Lisa Hetrick.....I must really like it. I received my Dec KOTM yesterday and just had to use these cute mittens, I just love how they look on the kraft card stamped in white pigment based dye ink. Then, of course, the snow man needed a little stickles bling.

These next two cards also stick with my theme of being snowed in today. I used my nestabilities to cut the shapes. They both have the UNITY snowflake stamp from the Sept KOTM friendship, love, miracles. Then the last card uses the UNITY trees trinity trio stamp. The backgrounds use the same white ink as the first card and the main images are both embossed with a mixture of silver and white spark embossing powder from Sparkle and Sprinkle. TFL!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

More UNITY STAMP CO. Hip Hop Hangover!

Here is an acrylic ornament I made with the Unity Stamp Snowone like you. This stamp set was made by the very talented Stamp Artist Lisa Hetrick. I used stazon ink in Ultramarine and some Icicle Stickles on the opposite side to add some "snow bling".

This was a kit from Close To My Heart that I loved. I made my own layout instead of following theirs, and here is the finished product. The Santa pictures are my favorite. Her outfit was perfect and he was the VERY BEST Santa EVER.

This photo was taken when Jazi was 6 months old and this simple layout is one of my very favorite. How did I actually look decent with no sleep at all??

5th Birthday

This layout uses all Close To My Heart products, from when I was a Consultant with them. A mix of coordinating stamps, papers and embellishments. TFL!!!


This layout was so fun to make. I remember thinking it was WAY TOO BUSY after I was done.....out of my "comfort" zone. When I look at it now I'm glad it looks that way..... as it matches the memory of a wonderful, busy Halloween perfectly.

Most items from CTMH except for the Halloween buttons.


This layout was made using a kit from Close To My Heart. All of the pictures are from our trip to Athens, Greece. If you look very close you may see the Olympic Torch behind my daughter and I in two of the photos.


Here's a layout from when my daughter chose her kitten. All products are from Close To My Heart including the stamps to make the collar. TFL!!

Here's a layout/frame I made using a pageframes scalloped circle acrylic frame. The lace and photos are under the frame and the rest of the embellishments are on top of it.

My daughter just turned 3 here and got the tutu for her birthday. She would wear it all the time and dance and jump in front of the fireplace.

I really had fun with this project and plan to do more acrylic projects.

Here's my first scrapbook layout for a UNITY stamp challenge. It's also been quite a while since I posted at all.......thanks to the UNITY HIP HOP girls. I've spent all my free time reading the TWILIGHT SAGA and Midnight Sun...... I just had to see what everyone was talking about and I was an instant addict.

I just love the UNITY stamps and handles. They have such great BIG stamps for scrapping, I just can't wait to make more and more layouts. Soon there will also be a scrapping DESIGN TEAM at UNITY also!!! WOW......I WISH!!!!!!! I guess it never hurts to try when it is something you really love to do.

My journaling on the layout says

My Sweet Jazmin,
Before I had you I didn't REALLY understand the expression TIME FLIES. Looking back at this picture, I know that it truly does. I cherish every moment of your childhood-soon it will fly away.
Love, Mom
