Unity Stamp of the Week #143: Warm & Cozy

warm and cozy

For this week’s Unity Stamp of the Week, I stamped cute little cozy socks with the perfect sentiment this time of year to adorn cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, gift wrap--you name it.

This stamp set makes me want to put on some warm socks, grab a cup of hot tea, and relax with a warm blanket in front of a fire, a good movie, or read a book.

Above is a tag I put together inspired by the feelings I had for this week’s Unity Stamp-of-the-Week set.

Create & Inspire Podcast #28: Unconventional Ways to Create a Dedicated Creative Space

Recently, I was contacted by Aunia Kahn who is the Podcast host from Create and Inspire. 

Every Thursday, this podcast shares creative tips, tricks and advice regarding art and crafting. She also interviews successful artists and art-focused businesses and shares their stories on success, struggles, and the passion of being in the world of creativity.

I was over the moon that she shared a link to my Laundry Room Studio YouTube Video Tour I posted last May for her latest Create & Inspire Podcast #28: Unconventional Ways to Create a Dedicated Creative Space.

This podcast gives you some unconventional space ideas to help you create your own dedicated space and enlighten you on how any space, big or small, can be transformed into an area all your own AND why it’s important for creative people like us.

Here’s a link to the Podcast: http://www.createandinspire.com/28/

And in case you missed it before, here’s my Laundry Room Studio YouTube Tour.

This video was captured last May—my room has changed a “little” since then.

Happy, Thankful, & Blessed

Today will be the first full day of Fall—Yay!

Unity’s September’s Kit of The Month theme is Happy, Thankful, & Blessed. It’s got a little bit of everything you may need this time of year to get the start on making some Fall projects that will make others in your life happy, thankful, and blessed.

thank you with flower

In the above card, I used a sentiment and an image from this month’s kit to thank someone in my life for all the little things they do for me. 

The patterned papers used are from Basic Grey’s Capture kit available at snapclicksupply.com.

To fussy cut the flower stamp, I used Silhouette’s Pixscan mat with my Silhouette Cameo.  The card and its layers were constructed in Silhouette Studio. Pop dots were used to give dimension to the cut flower. 

Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Pumice Stone and Aged Mahogany) were used to edge the card layers.

When I try to maintain a positive state of mind, recognize what makes ME happy, and remind myself of the little things that make the ones I care about happy AND healthy, I achieve amazing results. Life tends to be much easier for me when I can DO the things that make me happy, like stamping, crafting, and making beautiful things.
