A Monochromatic Challenge

The Monday Morning Challenge this week at 
is Monochromatic Projects

I've always loved Stephanie's hand-drawn clouds, so that was the inspiration for this "hello" card.
 I hand-cut a few of them to act as a border that separates the two different patterned papers. 
The small High-Five alphabet stickers fit perfectly inside of the sticker cloud and I added a 
bit of color with yellow button over the sun.

 Supplies: Summer Squeeze: Summer Breeze, Just Write Journaling Stickers;
 Classic Calendars: Just Write Journaling Stickers; Scattered Sprinkles:
 Ice Sprinkles; High Five Alpha Stickers: Blue; Button Market: Fruit Punch

 I chose the large sentiment sticker as my inspiration for this yellow-themed card. 
In staying with its rectangular shape, I selected the yellow diagonal stripe from one of the
 Classic Calendar pages and made two strips for the top and bottom of the cardstock.
 I made my own sun shape with a couple of punches and then added a tab sticker
 at the bottom for a nice contrast.

 Supplies: Summer Squeeze: Treasures & Text, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Wildflower; 
Classic Calendars: Bell Pepper Calendar; Button Market: Neutral Mix

The Bella layout designers have a couple of really cute pages up today too!
Hope you have a terrific MONDAY :)

A Festive Unity

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
