Hip Hop Thursday!

I am so excited to be able to kick off Hip Hop this week. As always you need to start at the Unity Blog with Angela to see what she's up to today and then just follow along from there.

My first layout for this week's Hip Hop uses the new release Numbers, Etc (US-1009W). I used this single last week and wanted to use it again to show you just how versatile this stamp is - I LOVE it! I have a bunch more ideas on how I'd like to use this single from birthday layouts to pages about my favorites, etc. It's a great stamp to have in your stash that's for sure!


This is my little guy Brandon when he was just 6 weeks old. I love little baby parts and thought the Numbers, etc stamp would make a great border for this layout about my little guy's "bits and pieces."

...

I love to create borders with my stamps - you'll see that a lot on my layouts. I use a stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement each time. If you don't have this handy dandy little tool it's definitely worth it to get one.

...

Just a detail shot of some of my embellies on the side of my collage. And what a surprise another stick pin - I told you I was obsessed with these little things!

My next layout uses some a few different Unity stamps including Distressed Dots (US-219W), Plaid Journal Box (USK-197-2), and This is the Time (UK-335A).


I created this layout about me and my little guy Brandon. We are SO MUCH ALIKE it's actually kinda crazy. We have the same exact personalities and we are especially stubborn (who me?!?) which makes for a very interesting test of wills at times between the two of us. We have a very special connection and I love him to pieces!


I love this journal box and use it on a lot of my layouts. It's nice and big for either journaling or a title as I've done here. And it's got the same great shape as my new (yahoo!) Fiskars Upper Crest border punch that I used on this layout as well. Love this shape!


Gotta throw in as many flowers, pink, and rhinestones as I can since I'm actually in these photos and I usually only get to scrap boys. LOL

Now head on over to the amazing Jimmi's blog and see what she's got in store for you today!
