What time is it?

It's Triple H time and Unity Hip Hop is always fun! Take a look at their Hip Hop sales here!

I missed hanging out in the SCS forum Thursday, as I went up north to Prescott to pick up my son from his Nike baseball camp. He had a blast and it was his first time staying overnight for 5 days at a college dorm (without parents)! ...and he already wants to go again next year!. I guess now that he's 13, he doesn't need mom (sniff, sniff). Here's a picture of him at the camp.

Okay, on to my card...I'm making this post short and sweet, 'cause I'm exhausted from getting up really early and being out in the sun all day. I used the July KOM "a pocket full of", and placed the DSP behind the stamped image on the vellum cardstock to show through lightly:

Just Baseball Card...

Today, I'm sharing a baseball themed card. My son is so involved in baseball and I never have enough baseball cards in my stash, so I case'd this card from a gal on SCS, Stamp Addict 77 (though I changed the LO a bit):
From Stampin' Up! Only Cards and Projects

I embossed the GAME ON! with clear embossing powder, and popped up the cut out baseball cap.

Stamps: SU! Just Baseball

I think I will make more similar cards to keep handy in my stash, and these could be used for another player or a coach. TFL!

My projects this week weren't the Unity challenges 'cause I have been cleaning out my scrap room. Now, I won't dare show you what my entire room looks like till it's done ('cause you don't want to see it now, believe me). What I will show you today is how I have organized my Unity unmounted stamps Unity Table Top Rubber Rack arrived, so I was able to place all my wood mounted stamps too! Yippee, hooray, woohoo (can you tell I'm doing a happy dance?)!
I created a book to reference all my Unity stamps (named Jen's Growing in Unity...yes, my collection is growing!), and I have pictures of all of the stamp sets that I have, and filed them under various categorical tabs:

I also placed all my Unity stamps/sets in numbered hanging plastic file cases (that correspond to the number I wrote on the individual stamp page in the book). I've had these plastic cases from Target and needed to utilize them instead of buying anything new. The KOM sets are placed in the Unity clear file folders (luv these); while the remainder of sets are placed on the Stamp N' Stor Lightweight Storage Panels (luv these, too) that I had ordered from PaperMakeUpStamps:

Accessories: Cuttle Bug w/Fancy Pants and Harmony alpha; Martha Stewart Lace Punch; SU! Wide Oval, Large Oval, Designer Label and Round Tab Punches; Black Gingham Ribbon; black elastic cord; Old SU! Planner (7"x9") that I re-purposed.

What a relief! Now I know where everything is and I can easily just look through my book for a certain image...organization makes me really happy!
