Today, I’m sharing a couple of canvas projects I put together using this month’s SMAK and Kit of the Month. On both projects, I used bleeding art tissue to provide color to the canvases AND I put together a video for each project, so you can see how to use this FUN supply—maybe you’ve used it before in elementary school.

Here’s a peek at this month’s SMAK and Kit of the Month.

UNITY Blog Hop 08.11.15!!

It’s Tuesday (NOT Thursday) and we’re hopping to celebrate Unity’s BIGGEST NEW releases of the year, an End-of-Summer Clearance Sale, and a NEW day to hop, cheer, and celebrate our fellowship—on our blogs and chatting it up on Facebook!! 

Come join us--click the picture below!




Here are a few tags I’ve assembled for the hop event using some of the NEW releases!

friends tag

The above tag was created using NEW Fashionistas from Tracey Malnofski.

Let’s hear three cheers for NEW Fashionistas!

to my cupcake

The above is also a NEW little set being released today. I’m going to use this to tag a gift, maybe even a cupcake. It’s SO cute!

let us dance

In the above tag, I used the NEW set by Susan Weckesser. I could also see using this set to scrapbook some summer pictures on the beach, at a concert, or just kickin’ it in the backyard.

Speaking of scrappin’, next up is an 8-1/2-x-11-inch scrapbook layout I put together recently showcasing a picture I took with my girls following a much-needed girls day out getting our hair done, having lunch, and shopping. I LOVE these days when it’s just me and my girls. 

you are my sunshine

On this layout, I used a technique called candle wax resist (with watercolors on watercolor paper) to create the background.  I did a quick little video, so you can see how it came together. 
Please watch--it's quick I promise!

Unity Blog Hop 07/30/15!!

Whew!! Did you see that? That was July flying by . . .

It’s Thursday and together we’re hopping with the Unity Stamp Company Design Team providing some inspiration, showing a couple of NEW stamp sets from Tifany DeGough, and Unity has another HOT sale!!

Here’s a peek at the NEW stamp sets, Little Ladies & Little Lads—SUPER cute!

Today I’m going to share a couple of projects I’ve done recently (using Unity’s Kit of the Month and Layers of Life Kit) with videos to show you some quick tips to help put your Unity projects together.

First up is a QUICK TIP video showing you how to create texture using masking tape. We probably all have this lying around the garage or in the office. It’s easy and fun to use.


Here’s a still picture of the tag I put together in the video.

sweet birthday wishes

Next up is an 8-1/2-x-11-inch scrapbook layout I put together showcasing a few pictures and journaling from our family’s trip to this year’s California State Fair in Sacramento, California. Around this time of year, we’re all visiting our county and state fairs. I think my favorite part of the fair is strolling the carnival area and holding my hubby’s hand while we watch our children take it all in. OH—and I love the deep fried moon pie!

I did a quick little video, so you can see how it came together. Please watch!


I used Unity’s Kit of the Month, Halo Dirty, to embellish the tag and the scrapbook layout. I promise you will have so much fun coloring or paper piecing the ice cream/cone. You can literally put that camera on anything scrap related and call it DONE! The zigzag ribbon is another staple embellishment to add to your rubber stamp arsenal that you can use over and over again.

I also used the background stamp in this month’s Layers of Life Kit, Devotion and Faith, on the tag above.
