Bevy of Unity Butterflies

I have recently become a huge fan of Unity Co. stamps! They have the cutest designs and I love that they are red rubber cling mount stamps. My favorite set at the moment is Bevy of Butterflies. It's a great set of butterflies that stamp and emboss really well and are easy to cut out.
My first project with them is the cards set I created below with the houndstooth butterfly. Its the first set I've created in a while and I'm really happy with it. The papers are mostly K & Co. and Bazzill cardstock. I stamped the butterflies in a grey ink and then embossed them with clear embossing powder.

Belated Valentines

With all the hustle and bustle this past weekend and then getting a cold this week I never found time to post my valentines projects so I want to get them up tonight for you. There are lots of pics to look at so make sure you scroll to the end of the post! The first pic is of our valentines gifts to each other. My hubby was very sweet and got me the cute little gorilla and roses.
This next picture is the Target mailbox that I decorated for the husband using K & Co. papers

I made the card below for him using Fancy Pants paper. The heart is a chipboard heart that I painted with Distress Crackle Paint and added the button and bow.

This is the card my 5 year old made for his dad. We used K & Co. embellishments and nestabillities. He thought it was the best thing ever.
The last two are valentines I made using K & Co. papers and my Cricut.

Exciting News!

I just got the best news!
I am soooo excited. I have to say a big thank you to Angela who talked me into doing the class for the box otherwise I would have never made it. For having my project featured I got to pick a free cartridge, so I picked Forever Young since it was at the top of my wish list. I can't wait to get it, I already have some projects in mind. Here are a few pics of my box if you didn't get a chance to see it. And tomorrow I will have a super cute page featuring the new Basic Grey line Sugar Rush and the Sweethearts cartridge!

And The Winner is......

Congratulations Pamela on winning this awesome cartridge! I also want to say thank you to everyone that participated, all of the comments were wonderful. I'm hoping to do many more of these fabulous giveaways so be sure to keep stopping by. I also have some exciting news I will be posting later and a super cute new project for tomorrow! Thank you again to everyone!
