Unity Sneak Peek!

Just a quick sneak peek of the newest release scheduled for Unity Stamp Company. This is the January Kit of the Month which will debut very soon. It looks absolutely adorable and if you haven't checked out Unity or joined their kit club this would be the perfect time to see what it's all about!

Unity Scrapbooking Design Team!

If you've read my blog before you know that I am a HUGE fan of Unity Stamp Company. They have the gosh darn CUTEST stamps that are so perfect for both card making and scrapbooking. They recently put out a call specifically for a scrapbooking design team and I am thrilled to say that yours truly will be a part of this amazing team. YAY! I love to both stamp and scrapbook so to be able to do both for a company that I love is like a dream come true. I am so excited! Congratulations to all of the other ladies who made the team - I am so excited to get to work with all of you!

And, of course, I can't have a post without some pictures so here is a layout that I created recently using Unity stamps. ENJOY!

Just a few more days ...

... and Santa will be visiting houses around the world! He actually visits our house first just in case you didn't know. ;) He comes to us on Christmas Eve morning since we are traveling on Christmas Eve night and Christmas Day. He makes his first stop at our house bright and early on the 24th so the boys have some time to play with their new toys before we head out to visit our families. Needless to say I have been one BUSY lady. Not much time to scrap at all! I did make 12 gift card holders for the boys' teachers and bus drivers but of course I was so focused on getting them done that I didn't even bother to take pictures when I was finished. Ah well! Since I've neglected my blog for the past week and haven't posted anything scrappy I thought I would at least post a card that I made for my in-laws anniversary. Their special day is actually December 25th! I put this card together pretty quickly using some older Making Memories papers that I still love. Simple but I like it!

Since I probably won't be blogging this week I just want to wish everyone out there a very Merry Christmas! ENJOY!

In case you missed it the first time around!

Due to a popular demand, we've decided to make our popular Got Sketch 101 & 102 classes available for those who missed the first go-around of the workshop series. While the original classes were interactive with teacher and student participation, prizes, forums and a gallery, these offerings will be more of a print-and-go format for your convenience. As usual, there's no homework, classes are self-paced and EVERYBODY gets an A+! We are offering all of the complete and original class content in an easy-to-navigate online classroom.

Click here for the GS101 & GS102 Bundle Info Page.
If you liked our GS Mini (freebie) class, you can now take 101, 102, or both !

We are closing the GS Mini site on Wednesday, December 17.
Thanks to those who joined us and gave us the opportunity to show you a tidbit of what our classes are like.
Have a wonderful holiday, everyone!!

Bring on the Holidays!

I finally got around to decorating the house yesterday and I am happy to say that we are now set for the holidays. Christmas is just sneaking up on me this year and I was feeling the pressure to get things going since everyone else I seem to talk to has already decorated and started (or even finished!) their Christmas shopping. So the garland and ribbon is hung on the staircase, the mantle above the fireplace is set, the tree is up and the ornaments are hung, heck we even have garland and bows on our lamp posts outside! LOL It feels good to be done with that big task but I am now stressing big time because I have not bought one single Christmas gift yet. Not even one! Yikes! So my goal this week is to at least figure out what I need to buy and then do any online shopping since the days are quickly dwindling between now and Christmas Eve! Ahhh!

And since I've been so short on time I have even had the opportunity to scrapbook much. This layout is actually one that I did a few weeks ago when my two gal pals Corey and Kristen came over for a girls night "in" of scrapbooking. Since I'm a boy mama I jumped all over the opportunity to use some pretty Noteworthy papers from Making Memories. Hope you all are having a great weekend! :)
