Growing in Unity Day 3

{supplies: cs – Bazzill; pp – Kioshi (Basic Grey), Early Bird (Cosmo Cricket); stamps – March 2010 KOM (Unity), Hey Cupcake (Schlosser Designs); ink – Versafine; button – Autumn Leaves; nesti – scallop rectangle; punch – Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers); other – string, Prismacolor markers}

Welcome to day three of my week of Growing in Unity.

Ok, so I totally love this card too?  Ended up going in a different direction than I planned, but I love the non-traditional colors with this gumball machine.  I also like the monochromatic feel.  I might have to make more of this one.  I paper pieced again… the entire gumball machine.  Don’t know what is up with my fascination with cutting small objects lately.

The sweet saying is a Schlosser Designs stamp.  I wanted just something short and “sweet.”  haha.

I also have a little video on some of my scrappin’ goodies for the month of April.  Just wanted to share some of the loot I have found and what I will be using that you can get from Limelight Papercrafts.

As a side note: do you have anything you would like to see in a video???

Watch here or at YouTube.


Thanks for stopping by!

I’ll see you tomorrow for some Unity fun combined with a Limelight Papercrafts challenge.  Yay!
