Pocket Scrapbooking with Unity Stamps

It's the perfect day to craft and work on my Pocket Scrapbooking album
Got my mug of tea
Secret stash of chocolate in the bottom drawer
And the new Nora Roberts book on tape to listen too

I wish all Saturday's were like this

I wanted to scrap some personal photos this time
I was inspired by the name of the November SMAK kit-
So this page is me and of course I had to include the butterfly as they have special significance to me
plus look at it- this butterfly is stunning!

I included 2 pics today as it was a bit of a struggle to get lighting on this grey November day



I made my own 3x4 pocket cards with the beautiful sentiment and the birds. 
I had also made the butterfly card in 3x4 then realized it would be sideways
Hmmm....not my plan
New plan included me grabbing some acetate and floating the butterfly on a 4x6 card. 
And some sequins of course!
This lead to me making 2 more acetate cards in 3x4 as I just love this look!

This kit can be yours too!
November is still here

Have a wonderful day!

Prima card- Read, Drink and be Merry


Andrea blogging on a Saturday?
Shocking I know hee hee

I realized I have so many creations I have shared on other blogs but haven't shared on mine. 
Time to rectify that!!

This is a card that I made with the Prima collection Coffee Break
I love love love the muted colours and how kitschy it is

Hope you like it!

Unity Thursday- Time to Hop!

October
Time for apples and apple cider
Changing leaves
Jacket weather
and all things Pumpkin flavoured!

The other thing October means to me is Christmas cards
If I don't get crackin' on them now....
Well it will be another year of empty mailboxes
And sad sighs from my loved ones
Yikes!

So I am so glad that some of today's releases are Christmas themed
I was able to whip up these cards in no time
Gotta love fast and easy to duplicate cards!



I fully recommend these stamps for your collection!
And of course we have some sales for you too!

Hopping with Unity and Faber-Castell today!


Happy Thursday!

Today we are happy to have Faber-Castell joining us on our weekly hop
Unity and Faber-Castell
a match made in mixed media heaven!


I went WAY out of my comfort zone
which is totally fun to make yourself do by the way
and worked on a small canvas
I used a set that I have had my eye on using for awhile now- Ooh La La
I adore all things Parisian and this set is packed full of French goodness
I then also used some Gelatos, Pitt Artist Pens and Gesso

First I gesso'd the canvas to prime the surface and get it ready
I then rubbed the gelatos on the canvas and rubbed it with my finger to blend
I found I wanted it a bit creamier so I spritzed with water and it blended perfectly
I dried it with my heat gun as I was impatient to get started
I stamped with a combination of ink, white gelato and pitt artist pens
I took a white pitt pen to doodle around the edges then finished them off with gold gelato

Want to win some of these goodies for  your own crafty stash?
Make sure you leave a comment at each stop on the hop today including the Unity blog and Faber-Castell blog for your chance to win the amazing prize package below!


Enjoy the Hop!
