HIp hOp--WeEk nINe!!!!!!!

WHOA! Nine weeks of Hip HOp! Can you believe it? It's been such a fun adventure, having you come visit our blogs and check out NEW UNITY! Today I have a few projects to share with you, I even SCRAPPED!!! Holy crud, I know! The stamping scrapbooker SCRAPPED! Bwahaha! I am really trying to get back into it, I really love to scrapbook! This page was actually done for an 8x8 page swap I'm in at Cropper's Cottage! I've known this group of women for a while now and 19 of us decided to create a circle of friends album, a page of each of us! Now, this was no easy feat because I procrastinated as long as I could and then forgot about the swap and had to crank 19 of these babies out a week after they were due! I'm horrible, I know! I'm just lucky they're keepin me around;)



I used my Distressed Dots background stamp on the Kraft base and then used the hand, large parentheses, and dotted journaling lines stamp from Amazing Me! This kit is PERFECT for pages like this! I couldn't have prayed for a better kit to have in my stash;) The numbers are from the same kit!
The second close-up shot is a good detail picture of what the distressed dots background looks like, so fun!

Next card, it's Baby Jesus! This is one of the new singles being released today! It goes SO perfectly with many verses and Christian stamps released sprinkled through-out many KOM's and kits! The sentiment stamp used in this card is from the September KOM, which is now available as a collectors set!! That's right! Angela is releasing prior KOM's for sale for $45! Make sure you jump on the KOM wagon now and start getting your KOM's for $24 so you won't have to pay the $45 to get past Kits! The KOM club is a really awesome deal, you won't find a better one anywhere!;)

Okay, enough yappin, here's the card:
Isn't that stamp adorable? I can't get over it! I used Soft Sky patterned paper under the image, gotta love the dots! The sentiment, as I said, is from the September KOM.

Last card for today is using the October KOM! This should come as no surprise, but this kit is AWE-SOME! So many fun little stamps to mix and match with other kits or use all together like I did on this card!
The color is off because I had to take the picture tonite and it's already dark and lighting SUCKETH in my house at night! Whoever painted these walls surely wasn't thinking about the light I'd require for taking pics of my cards! YEESH!
The card base is a piece of Spring Moss, the dp is from Pink Patterns, and the pink cardstock is Berry Sorbet, all by PTI. The flourish, sentiment, and cute little birds are all from the October KOM! Go get it before it's too late!!!

So I hope you're having fun HIP HOPPIN'!!! Your next stop is none other but the fab Anne-Marie! This girl ROCKS and it's so fun to have her on the team this month!
Don't forget to check out the Unity Blog for today's AWESOME 25% OFF SPECIAL!!!!!!!!!!
And then stop on over to the Unity Forums for an alllllll day long party with $300 worth of stamps flyin off the shelves as prizes!
Have a fantastic HiP HOp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
