Hip Hopping with Unity's Modern Day Chit Chat

Andrea here starting off this week's Unity Hip Hop. I am using one of the 2 new releases- 'Modern Chit Chat'. How fun are those images! I want an iphone soooo bad and so does my teenage daughter. In fact she has decided that she should get one for her 16th birthday which is coming up. So this card is for her- so she can have her dream come true of getting an iphone that day. So what if it is made of paper lol!!!!! Closest she will be getting to one for awhile I think hee hee!

Sale Alert!!

Angela has made this sale easy to remember and to enticing too resist! 40% off storewide (excluding KOTM, SMAK and SOTW signups). AND if you spend $40 before taxes you get to choose one of the following two background stamps FOR FREE!! You can choose between 'Just a little clicky' which I need to own right now and 'Grade School Tablet'

Back to the hop. We are spicing up this week's hop with new releases and some PRIZES! Hidden along the hop are blogs giving away 3 sets of 5 itty bitty stamps! All you have to do to win is leave a comment on all of the blogs as we aren't telling which ones are the 'prize' blogs. We're sneaky like that hee hee!!

C4C- Paper Smooches Thank you Card

Ahhhh...I just love when a card comes together easily. 

It's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges mojo inspiration! Being the Sept challenge hostess I got to pick  what the challenge was again - and I love me an easy challenge!

This week's challenge over at C4C is to either make a Thank You card or an Thanksgiving themed card. I had a hard time deciding which one to do as I have to admit I enjoy creating for both. I grabbed some sentiments from Paper Smooches and a some flowers and this card pulled itself together. That doesn't happen to me so I better keep crafting while I am on a roll hee hee!

If you would like to play along with us click here to go to the C4C challenge blog to see the AMAZING samples my fellow crazies cooked up for you this weekend!

Cheers, Andrea

Hip Hopping with Unity and My Little Shoe Box- New Release FUN!!

Hello and thanks for hopping with us today. We are so pleased to share our new Co-Branded stamps with My Little Shoebox. Make sure you leave a comment on each blog to win one of the fabulous prizes from Unity Stamp Company and My Little Shoebox. Winners will be chosen at random from the participating blogs. If you have just arrived at my blog and want to start the hop CLICK HERE to be taken to the My Little Shoebox blog.

For the hop today I used the sweetest stamp set- 'Deer To Me'. As soon as we were given a preview of the stamp sets being release I screamed as loud as I could that I NEEDED this stamp set asap!!! Since I was on facebook I had to use all CAPS to make sure Angela heard my screams all the way from Canada hee hee! Thankfully I got this one in my designer package so no more screaming was needed ;P.

Except for my cardstock all the patterned paper on my card- including my rolled flower- was courtesy of My Little Shoebox. I haven't used their papers before and let me tell you- their patterned paper is fantastic! I love love love a heavier weight to my paper and this was great! The patterns, the colours and the great pop out sheets of pre-cut flowers, etc ready to be rolled made this lazy crafter's heart swoon! I will be adding MLS to my stash going forward!

And of course Angela has an awesome sale going on to celebrate our new co-branded release! All the MLS stamps marked down plus spend $35 and get 'written in the clouds' background stamp for FREE!!! I have this stamp and it is so adorable! It actually matches the paper you can see behind my card in my photo.

Okay, okay...I will stop hogging all of your attention with my love of this uber adorable release. Your next stop on this hop is Beckie Dreyer from the My Little Shoebox DT. Hip hop over to see Beckie's sweet creation and see why I can't quit sqee'ing with happiness!

High Hopes Stamps- Things that Hop

This week's HHS challenge is to make a creation using something that 'hops'. Since no one is actually sure what dragons could or couldn't do I decided to push the envelope a little bit hee hee!

I used 'Handy Dragon' on my card as he looks like he can not only hop but fix your roof while he is bouncing around! I used a sketch that is over at this week's Crazy 4 Challenges blog- in fact check there this coming Saturday to see who is sponsoring this month's challenge. Might be a company familiar on this blog *wink*. 

So hop on over to the HHS challenge blog to see more 'hoppy' goodness and the full challenge deets. Also let us know if you want to play along with us on one of our challenge posts!!

Cheers, Andrea

Hip Hop Hip Hop- With Unity!

Today I am sharing one of my FAVE Unity Itty Bitty stamps from the Webster's pages line called 'The Little Things'. Stacked perfect!!

I may have mentioned here just once or twice that I am a PROUD tea granny. I need my 2 cups a day minimum in the morning to even be able to speak clearly. Sadly I am not exaggerating here. Ask anyone who tried to communicate with me before then. A series of misplaced words, grunts and hand gestures is the best I can do. As such I collect tea related stamps and paraphernalia. I think I hyperventilated till I actually had this stamp in my hands. Yes I know I am overly dramatic- that's what all that caffeine per day does to you lol!!!

Before I go I have to say that while there are no teacups or teapots in the Sept KOTM I am still over the moon excited to get it into my hot little hands!!! All these vintage images are filling me with creative mail can't come soon enough!! If you want to join me in getting Unity's Kit of the Month click here to learn more about it. Join in September to receive the one below....SWOON!!

See what I mean!!! It is amazing!!!

Okay I have kept your attention long enough- next up on today's hop is the uber talented and stylish- Eryn!!
