Unity Blog Hop!!!



Happy Sunday all!  I'm hopping along with some other former GIU girls today and the Unity Stamps blog!!  If you stop by each blog and leave a comment, you could win some incredible Unity stamps!!

We were asked to create with our favorite Unity kit, but I could no sooner choose a favorite Unity kit than I could choose a favorite boy band!!  So I decided to use my CURRENT favorite kit, which is the December KOM, Always Been You.  I'm especially obsessed with this rose stamp in particular because it reminds me of Beauty and the Beast.



If you've come here from the Unity Blog then you're in the right place!!  To keep hopping along for a chance to win some Unity goodness, here's the full hop list in order:

31 Days of Crafting - Day Ten - She Saved The World A Lot

Twenty years ago today, Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered.  Buffy was one of my favorite shows, but only for the first three seasons.  When they spun Angel off into his own show, the whole thing became a disaster.  Anyways.  I made a Buffy card today, to celebrate.

31 Days of Crafting - Day Nine - Happy Birthday Barbie!!!

My favorite doll, my favorite toy, my favorite everything Barbie is 58 today.  I have so many wonderful memories of playing with this doll.  My Barbie dolls weren't just models and beauty pageant contestants, but they were astronauts and nurses and lawyers.  They owned soda shops and Pizza Hut, one was an ambassador for UNICEF.  Barbie could be ANYTHING, whether she was wearing a Dollar Tree dress or a Donna Karan coat or a cut off sock (don't act like you didn't do this).  She was always inspiring to me.  She's still inspiring to me.  And every year I make a birthday card that celebrates her, because she deserves to be celebrated.

31 Days of Crafting - Day One - #OneChicago

HAPPY NATIONAL CRAFT MONTH!!!  It's my third annual year of 31 Days of Crafting posts, where I try to post at least one project each day.  It's a tall order but I know I can do it!

I've never made a card inspired by any of the Chicago shows before.  Chicago Fire is my FAVORITE show and the others are pretty close to that in my book. I'm SO EXCITED for the addition of Chicago Justice and for the all night Chicago-thon tonight on NBC!  I wanted to make a love card, not only because I love the shows but because they have so much heart to them.  The background is representative of the colors of the shows' logos blending together as one :D

    Fifty Shades Of.....

    SQUEEEEEEEEE I'm SO excited, Fifty Shades Darker opens today.  Of course I've already seen it--it was epic--but I just had to make a card to celebrate the film.  You can get this image at Angie's Digital Stamps.


    The lyrics there are to "Honestly" by Kelly Clarkson, which I think is a great song for the series.

    Exploring The Unknown

    A few days ago I was working on my blog and noticed that the new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge was Hearts and Flowers.  Instantly my mind went to Fifty Shades of Grey.  If you haven't read the book, basically when Ana wants to date romantically, Christian tells her, "Hearts and flowers?  That's not something I know."  So I decided to make a card with that theme, using a technique I hadn't done before.  Inlaid die cutting with a shadow image like a heart, I'd done.  But with something so detailed, I'd been too chicken.  Until now.

    And SQUEE!!!!!  Fifty Shades Darker opens in a week!!!
