Another Digital Page

I love digital scrapbooking. I still love traditional so I won't be giving it up completely.
This layout is my grandson and daughter. I got most of the elements from Two Peas in a Bucket.

Unity Kit of the Month Blog Hop!

Edited to change link in Blog Hop!
It's finally here! The Unity Kit of the Month Blog Hop!
If you're starting here, view the Unity Kit of the Month Blog Hop by starting at There is so much to see, and you won't want to miss a thing!
This card was made using the April Kit of the Month, Fresh Beginnings. Gorgeous kit. So many stamps! I also used Basic Grey Bittersweet paper, Prima Flowers, and my Nesties. I used PTI and SU ribbon, an SU Clear button, and SU Linen Thread.
Such a great card for a sister ;)
Now on to the next stop on the Unity Kit of the Month blog hop! Your next stop is the ubertalented ***DEE***!
It's a great day for a blog hop, especially when it's Unity!

Unity KOTM Blog Hop Preview

Good Morning! Here is a preview of the Unity Kit of the Month Blog Hop. Make sure you come back later when the Hop begins at 11:00 Central Time!
This card uses the March Kit of the Month, Simple Life. I stamped the journaling block (not just for scrapbooking!), cut it out, and punched the edge using an EK Success edger punch. I saw the "But wait, there's more" along the bottom of the DP and thought it might be kind of cute along the bottom ;>. I stamped one of Unity's beautiful quotes on the inside. Sorry, could not get a decent picture of the inside, but you get the idea. I used my Cutter Bee Bug to add the perforated lines to mimic the lines in the paper. By the way, how awesome is the Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday line! The buttons I love! I put little snips of ribbon over the buttons and tied them to the buttons using linen thread. I got the idea from Michelle Wooderson. She always has awesome ideas!
Thanks for looking, and don't forget to come back for the Blog Hop.

Tiny Trinity

Yes, another Unity card. Yes, I am an addict! And no, I don't want to stop!
This card uses Tiny Trinity Kit (love these trees) and "enjoy" from the February KOM, Endings & Beginnings. I can't say enough about what a great deal the Kits of the Months are!
I paper pieced again too. Sorry I don't know what paper this is. It's all from one 8x8 collection. The buttons on the corners are from Papertrey INK. I inked around the edges of the trees and the grass hill.
Thanks for checking it out!

May KOTM Guest Designer Challenge

I made this card a couple of weeks ago, as soon as I received my April KOTM. I was so excited and this was the first stamp that jumped out at me. Love it! I left it a little less fussed with until I found out what the challenge was going to be, then I added to it until I was happy with it. Yes, I saved this card for this challenge! I was so geeked about the challenge, and very happy with this card.
I started with an SU Sahara Sand base. I stamped the little curly flourish along the edge. I added the designer paper from, I think, Daisy D's. The Kraft layer was stamped with the Distressed Dots. The Dress Form is mounted on Papertrey Ink Spring Rain CS. The "Hello" is stamped on Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush. The Twill Ribbon is also sponged with PTI Sweet Blush. All of the edges of the cardstock were distressed with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and sponged with SU Creamy Caramel Ink to age it. The twill was also sponged with Creamy Caramel. I dug and found some SU buttons to coordinate with the card. They have SU Linen Thread through them, and they're adhered with glue dots.
The GORGEOUS Dress Form was stamped in SU Close to Cocoa and colored with Prismacolor Pencils. After shading the whole thing I went over the lines and the basewith Prismacolor's Gold Metallic pencil. It was cut out in two pieces and mounted on the cardstock. The body of the form was popped up on dimensionals. I found this tiny rhinestone flower by Heidi Swapp for the belt. I went over the pearl necklace with my white pen.
Whew, that was a lot! I hope you enjoy it!
