Unity Thursday {Inspiration}

Yep, it's Thursday and that means it's time for some
UNITY INSPIRATION
from a few of the gals at Unity Stamp Co. Design Team!

**You should be arriving from Renee Aslette's Blog**

Here is one of the "Specials" that we're promoting today:

 --COMMENT, COMMENT, COMMENT--
As with every Unity Thursday Hop, three lucky commentors will receive a $20 Unity Gift Certificate,
so please comment as you go...and good luck!
(Winners announced this coming Saturday at 6PM CST)

I was delighted to create with the two new AngieGirl Stamps for this week!

 You know me!  Just some pretty-colored markers and I'm good to go :)
I love stamping on the canvas texture of this type of cardstock, but it does take a few
tries to get the stamp inked up good enough to get 'into' the grooves.  For any areas that
don't take on ink, I just use a fine-point ZIG pen and trace in the areas.


 I really, really enjoyed this one!  I mixed in a few watercolor pencils with markers...
I love the soft and brights together.  You will be seeing a lot of this stamp used by the 
Design Team...I think we're all pretty crazy about it :)
Doesn't Angie Blom do a fantastic job!?! Oh that I could draw...I'll keep dreaming!

Enjoy the Unity {Inspiration}...thank you!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
