Hip Hop hangover...last one of 08!

Friday, December 19, 2008

Well the Hip Hop was fab yesterday and there was lots of giveaways and fun. I won a prize (yay for me) and chatted it up with all my new Unity friends. I missed chatting with Angela tho, she is so sweet! Run over to Unity to see all the deals cause when they're gone that's it. She's retiring some stamps and you don't want to miss out! So for this week's Hip hop hangover I've got plenty of Unity products to share.

First up is my submission for the Hip Hop Challenge, Don't distress, distress with Unity challenge. I love this paper. I distressed all the edges of the cardstock and made my own accent with a floral pin using a stamp from the fanciful dots set. It kind of looks like a peppermint candy huh!

Next is the Unity Christmas Pie Color challenge, for this one you had to use the color cream and brown and then whatever filling you like. I used Unity's fanciful dots to wallpaper my cardstock and Wish Sticks

This next item is a little project I started a few years ago to save all my holiday cards in from year to year. The size is 8 1/2 X 11 and I used Unity's Trinity trio stamp for a little festive decor. I made the pocket from patterned cardstock and scalloped the top. I used staple to secure it to the white card stock. you simply slide the card inside the pocket and then I put them in my scrapbook clear page protector.

Next up is a card I made for Ashley's Etsy inspired challenge she does weekly. Check it out here on her blog, she's a sweetie! I used Loopy flowers from Unity's Oh Happy Day set. I chose these earrings as my inspiration

Here's my card

Last but not least I get to show you Christmas gift I am making my DH's cousins who are both in their 20's. We had to make gifts this year for our friends and family so I was tryinf to come up with unique ideas. I picked up these wooden unfinished boxes at Michaels for 2 for 1.00 and painted them with making memories paint which dries super fast! Then I used clear modge podge to seal them and embellish. Finally I stamped images from Unity's Flirty Flowers and Oh happy day set. I then embossed the carstock and stamped an additional flower and cut it out and popped it off the card over the stamped image with a foam dot and added bling. I think this gift turned out really nice. I know I would enjoy it as a present.

So that's it for today. Thanks for sticking with my long post today! i really enjoyed each of these projects. Last but not least, I am really excited that Saturday I will be attending a Master's class at Prima Marketing in Chino, Ca. I found out thru the Prima blog I follow that they hold classes at their site and I was totally excited to be able to attend. It's about a 45 mins drive but so worth it. So Monday I will have my completed project to show off! We're doing a mini album and afterwards you can stay and crop and shop. Hmmm...that could spell trouble for my hubs pocketbook.
Anyway a huge hug to my hubbs who gave me the class for my Christmas gift this year early of course. I luv you babe!
