{ippity} PEACE

I was so excited to get with my new {ippity} stamps! So, I played along with two SCS challenges: TLC248 Stocking Gift Card Holder template; and CC246 to use colors Bermuda Bay, Old Olive and Pretty in Pink today. You lift up the front flap on the stocking and it holds a gift card...pretty neat.

The {ippity} set I used is the new Kissmas & Mistletoe...aren't the stamps cute?!
I had some old SU lined c/s, and made it plaid by drawing additional lines with the same color markers.  I decided to dangle three of the trees from twine, embossed with dazzling diamonds on the snowflakes, and use my Glassy Glaze Enamel Powder on the word PEACE and the trees...they shine IRL much more than this pic!

Unity's FWFF!

Friends with Flair Friday and it's been a busy week!  My son just had his braces put on, so I'm having to make "soft" foods for dinner, since his teeth are sore.  Good thing Thanksgiving is coming...lots of mashed potatoes for him!

I hope you enjoy all of the yummy Unity goodness as you browse through all the customer much to see!

Today, I am sharing my entry for the final Unity Bachelor Bro Challenge. There were seven of us participants, and we were to send in an altered gift to our "boyfriend Bro"! Even though I did not win, it was so fun, and I was honored to be able to join these talented gals in this last challenge!  Take a look at their fantastic creations here!

I sent Ryan a magnetic calendar, created from a picture frame.  All of the days on the calendar, and the sentiments to be placed under the "today" sign, are all exchangeable (magnets).  I painted the overall frame, distressed it a little and then modge podged it.  Then I put all the embellishments along the outside of the frame.
Here's a full view:

The bottom half view (oh btw...the round circles are magnets too, and you can just put them over the appropriate month and day):

Now, if you want to check the details out are some detailed views of the outside frame.
Around parts of the frame I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with SU Classy Copper Embossing Powder:

This sentiment is tied with twine to the ribbon, and popped up on the frame:

I stamped Ryan's name and popped up the letters:

I paper pieced the guitar, popped it up, and used twine for the guitar strings:

Popped up the heart and placed an arrow behind it:

This is the small 3x3 card to Ryan:

This pouch has various embellished sentiments that I made to exchange daily (or whenever) to be placed under the 'TODAY' word on the top half of the calendar:

Sorry for such a long post, but I wanted to get these pic's in.  Make sure to explore Unity's sales items too!  Thanks for coming by and have a fabulous weekend!

It's Freakin' Friday already???

Yay, I ordered the "Freakin' Unity" t-shirt, did you? It seems like Friends with Flair Friday came by so and in the fast lane...soooo fast!  Okay, let's get to my post.

Today I'm sharing a door hanger goodie box filled with hot apple cider packets (or I could use this for a cute little gift to fit inside), and stuffed it with shredded card stock.

I used the Unity Royal Day background stamp all over the box. Then I made a belly band layered with Purely Pomegranate cardstock (retired SU) and My Mind's Eye Laundry Line paper. Wrapped a satin ribbon around the belly band and added a tag with twine. The tag sentiment is outlined in Stickles. Then, I cut out the stick hearts from the September KOM, tucked them in the ribbon, and covered the swirls with a gold Gel Burst pen for some shine, which shows up more IRL.

From Unity Projects
Have an {ippity} 'hint, hint' coming soon kind of day and enjoy the rest of the fantastic Unity inspiration as you peruse the Unity customer blogs! I'm still trying to catch up on all the blogs from last week...wish me luck to get through them all today! *smile*

Finally mailed in my "Broman" Gift and... {ippity} coming soon!

Ack! I think the stress is finally over! I wanted to get my Broman challenge completed this weekend, but you all know what happens when you are picking up and dropping off the kids and running errands! Yea, and I only have one 13 year old son, but his friends are also my sons, ya KWIM?!

I finally got my "gift" to my boyfriend Broman in the mail today! No, he's not really my boyfriend, but Unity asked us to make sure the package clearly stated it was sent "to my boyfriend Broman"! The challenge was to send an "altered" gift, so I hope my package gets there okay. I will show my gift after Broman receives it, so I won't ruin the surprise...geez, I hope he likes it?! Heck, there's big winnings at stake...I have no idea what the other gals are sending in, but if you know the Unity addicts...there are going to be some terrifically awesome gifts! We'll have to see if mine lives up to there's, so now it's waiting time, waiting, waiting...till the November 19th announcement (insert finger nail biting here)!

The big news...drum roll...woohoo, yay, YES, I have joined the {ippity} chicks to represent that exciting new, fun and fresh line of stamps! Woohoo, yay, I can hardly wait for my inventory to get here. If you are interested in purchasing these stamps from me, I will have a new post/blog area shortly, so keep on the lookout, okay?! And, as an added bonus...if you are in close proximity to Phoenix, Arizona, I'd be glad to drop by with the new goodies so you can see what fantastic quality these stamps are. Deeply etched rich red rubber...WHO DOES THAT? Well, Unity and {ippity} by Unity, of course!

Till next time, have an {ippity} kind of day!
