Unity Stamp Co. Inspirational Blog Hop!

Woohoo, the blog hop is finally here! View the Inspirational Blog Hop by starting at the Unity Stamp Co. blog. I love using Unity Stamp for my scrapbook layouts and for making cards - so versatile.
Today I made a card for one of my favorite causes, Cards for Heroes. I think a soldier's family might enjoy receiving this cute card in the mail:

This mushroom stamp pairs up perfectly with the The Green Stack papers from Die Cuts With a View. I paper pieced the mushroom, and added some pearls. The tiny mushrooms were cut out of patterned paper, and the owl and branch are part of the patterned paper. Supplies: mushroom stamp from Unity Stamp Co. February 2009 Kit of the Month; patterned papers from Die Cuts With a View (background, tiny mushrooms) and My Mind's Eye (big mushroom); pearls are Kaisercraft; ink is Memento Rich Cocoa; cardstock is Bazzill; misc. jute twine.

I am a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland. Here is one of my favorite little quotes from Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll: [said by the Queen of Hearts]

Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Thanks for visiting. Now hop over to the fabulous Natalie's blog and check out what fun project she has made.

What Eva

I completed a bunch of layouts from my scrapbook weekend a couple months ago. I never did upload them here, so here's a start:

Let's start with my favorite "What Eva." I got the "Whateva' stamp in Unity Stamp Co.'s Dec. 2008 kit of the month. I thought, "when will I ever use this?" Well, I know a little girl named Eva and I thought it would be a fun play on words. This is from my August 2008 trip to San Francisco.

Supplies used: Papers & cardstock from Studio Calico's November 2008 kit of the month. Patterned papers - Sassafras Lass, Collage Press (journaling scrap), "Whateva" stamp from Unity Stamp Co., Ranger Archival Black Ink, Colorbox Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan (inked edges), Copic Markers, misc. button.

More to come...
