Graduation Card

This Unity stamp is perfect for graduation. It's "With Confidence." I masked off the swirly girly looking elements of the stamp since this was for a guy.
I paired it with Max & Whiskers from Basic Grey. Great guy paper!
I went over the bigger words with a black glaze pen for a little texture. I wrapped Martha Stewart brown Baker's Twine around the edge of the sentiment and through the button. The button is from my stash. Thanks for looking!
Cardstock - Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate
Ink - Momento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dyed

The Room Is Done

Here it is! I'm so happy it's pretty much done. I love everything about it.

The picture above is my Ziggy, but there are lots of supplies here too. The orange baskets are FULL of alterable items of all shapes and sizes. I have enough to keep me busy for a long time. The green boxes, and the boxes behind them, are cards. I have to go through them and find some to donate. The black bins on the top are 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock. Yes, 3 file boxes. They're not all full though, yet. There are new SU colors coming, plus I love PTI and I'm looking at that closely ;). The plastic file boxes aren't my idea of a great way to store, but until I can afford a NICE file cabinet they'll do. There's a top so they won't be exposed to the light and dust.

The basket above is sparkly and fun. Stickles, Glimmer Mist, SU Smooch, glitter, and flock.
This shelf below is all Unity goodness! Yum! Love this stuff. The storage is by Scraponizer. I get them from Unity. Expecting more storage and more Unity any day.
Thanks for looking! I'll be back with a card soon!

A little of the craft room!

Here are some pics of my craft room. I'm not quite ready to show everything yet. A little more organizing to do. I can't wait to show the rest!
I love my scissors! found them last year at Michael's. They were unfinished and I painted them black. I dug out some SU rub-ons. Love these scissors!

My Ikea bookcase! I will eventually be getting another one. I really need one. That blank spot is where my Cuttlebug is suppose to be. It was in my bag. That top cubby holds my Unity stamps, lots of them!

See that empty spot next to the ink holder? That's where another ink holder is going to go. See the ink on top of the ink holder? I really do need another one, especially with Stampin' Up coming up with a few more colors.

These prints are from Vol. 25 Etsy Store. They're perfect in my room. They're printed on canvas paper which I love.
I am getting close to being done with the room. I have to show you the ceiling. My idea and I love it! Thanks for looking!

Unity Challenge - Anniversary Challenge #4

Happy 2nd Anniversary Unity! I love, love, love, Unity!!! This card is for their Challenge #4. This is a sketch I will surely use again!
The DP is Cosmo Cricket. Ribbon is Papertrey Ink. The ink and green CS are also Papertrey. Buttons are from my stash. The card base is Kraft from SU.

Thanks for looking!


I AM back and I'm so happy I am! I have a craft room of my very own (pictures very soon) and a burning desire to create! Last night I created my first project and started another.
I was VERY influenced by Donna Downey. She is phenominal! I love the idea of just putting the brush to canvas (even if I don't know what I'm doing ;). I used watercolor crayons and lots of water. My watercolor crayons are not the quality of hers, but they did well. The flower is from Prima, and the leaf ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. The stamps are from UNITY. It's great to be back! I have a card to post a little later.
