Unity KOM

My Unity KOM just arrived and I love it.  So many CUTE stamps and sentiments!!!  Hope I get to play with it some more this week.   I have lots of sign orders that I've been working on non stop...  This is the first card I've made for awhile. 

Such a cute little row of homes.  The little clouds are from PTI and the butterflies MS.

Mustache fun

I've been making signs, signs and more signs around here, but wanted to try something fun!!!  I get so much inspiration from Pinterest.  I'm pretty sure that is where I first saw these and now they are popping up everywhere.  They are so fun and cute!!!

I bought the mustache images from the Silhouette store and cut them out on my machine using adhesive vinyl.  The paper straws were a fun purchase I made.  Thought they would be fun for the holidays!! (=

Here are my CUTE models!!! (=

Stamping on canvas

I picked up a few canvas bags and thought they might be fun to try stamping on.  I used stamps from Unity (the cute snowmen) PTI (the coffee cup) and Stampin Up (Santa).   These are cute, fun and easy.  I put a wood block inside the bag to stamp and color on.  This way you get a clearer image and the copics didn't run through the fabric when coloring. 
These are perfect for small gifts...
Coffee and or tea would be fun for the bag below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tile magnets

I haven't made these in awhile, but I had some 2x2 tiles on hand and thought they might make some cute gifts.   Great for Grandparents! (=
I tried two different methods.  The first was with tissue paper.  You need to tape your tissue paper onto some cardstock and run it directly through your printer.  Cut out your photos and apply with Mod Podge.  When using Mod Podge and tissue paper you are going to get some wrinkles in the paper. So I thought I would also try it using just thin computer paper.  This method is a little easier and you don't get the wrinkles you would with tissue paper.

  It's hard to see the difference here, but the bottom one's were made using tissue paper.
Use a hotglue gun to apply the magnets!!!

I'm joining in on this weeks Unity Friends with Flair.   This card was made using the itty bitty snapshots stamp.  I paired it with a sentiment from a previous KOM.  Thought they went great together!   The camera's were all paper pieced with paper from jillibean soup. 

Thanks for stopping by! (=

I've been working with lots of wood and seeing lots of inspiration on pinterest.  I decided to make these fun little wood pumpkins...  I had the wood cut to different sizes, painted them and added a wine cork (painted brown)  to the top.  Finished them off with some rafia and ribbon.  Simple and Cute!!!
