Using my SOTM-FWF

I was recently lucky enough to be given a subscription to Unity's stamp of the month club by my very sweet husband.  One of the things I love about getting the kit is that I get stamps I might not normally choose for myself and the woods were one of those.  I had also recently gotten some gesso but hadn't actually used it and this seemed like the perfect stamp to try stamping it with.  I love how it turned out and I even used my husbands Gelato's (got them as a Christmas gift for him, cough, cough ...).  We both love using the Gelato's so I see "us" getting some more in the future.

Supplies used: Unity KOTM, 3 Girl Jam Pastel Ribbon, Gelatos, Gesso, Unity Snow Peeps, Shinhan Twin Touch Markers

Catching up - FWF

I know its January and most likely cold where you are (it's very cold here) but I am getting caught up on layouts so here is a Halloween layout of my son from last year.  I have been challenging myself to use my stamps on layouts and I used two Unity sets (EP Times and Seasons Numbers and Ticket to Fun).

Here is the sketch I based it on:

Supplies Used: DCWV Cardstock, K&Company Spooktackular, Unity Stamps Times and Seasons and Ticket to Fun, MS Punch Aroungd Page Spiderweb

Sympathy Card

I recently made this sympathy card for a friend's children who lost their father at a young age.  My heart just breaks for them and I decided to make a sympathy card.  I used my new KOTM stamp set from Unity and also decided to color the flowers with Gelatos.  I like working with them but I definitely need more practice, but they are fun to use.

Supplies used: Craft Smith Nautical Stack, Spellbinders Floral Ovals, 3 Girl Jam Ribbon, Gelatos, Unity SOTM

I made recently got the Kit of the Month for Christmas, and couldn't wait to use it.  I had these pictures taken of my daughter in the summer and I knew the paper and stamp would be perfect (don't you love it when that happens).  I have been resolved to make more layouts this year and make a bigger dent in the stash.  This one uses new and old stuff which always makes me feel good to use some old stuff (seriously have a ton of border stickers/die cuts to use) but I and finding a new use for them as my style changes again.  I picked all my accent colors based on the current Unity Be Inspired Challenge, it is my goal this year to get more scrapping done, and I plan on using challenges as a way to kick start it.

Supplies used: Unity Stamps Kit of the Month (November), Shinhan Touch Markers, Sequins, Craft Smith Gradient Stack, K&C Border, Spellbinders Font 1 Upper and Lower Case, Spellbinders Floral Ovals
