Unity, Colorbox, & stencils!

Hi everyone!

Have you ever bought something and then never use it? I bought some stencils a while back.
I bought them to make cards, filler cards for project life, and mixed media. I have only really played with them. I haven't made anything. Until now. 

I used a cosmetic sponge to pounce the Colorbox Inks, Berry & Chambray, to make the backgrounds using the Crafter's Workshop Numbers collage stencil. For the balloons on the berry card I took an Elf concealer brush and 'painted' with the ink. The Unity stamps are from the Feb. 11 KOM and the Simple Party Itty Bitty. The insides are stamped "balloons make every birthday better" From the KOM.
Who knew makeup tools could be so useful for paper crafts?
  Have an AWESOME week!

Playing with CHALK

Hi everyone! 
I missed last week because I've been trying to work on my PL book.....and we have a friends staying with us......and my mojo went on vacation!
Anyway, I figured the best way to entice my mojo back is to color :)

I used my Derwent chalk pencils and some Decorating chalks. And of course, my newest Unity stamps.

I love these images! 

Countryside Blooms is on SALE for $2.99

Scarecrow is too

Halloween Greetings is $6.99

Have a great week!

Hi Everyone! 

Ever since I saw the panda from the April 2013 kit I have been wanting to ink him up. I decided to take a break from Project Life to do a couple quick cards. 

I colored the flower with my Sharpies and used pink Stickles for the heart on the paw. I really think they turned out cute!

Are you shopping at Unity over the weekend? There are a few stamps that somehow found their way into my cart! There's deals to be had including the $2.95 shipping!

Time to make dinner. I have no idea what I'm making!
