{1.19.2012} hip hop

Hi there!

We are Hip Hopping along today with the Unity design team.  If you didn’t start at the beginning of the hop, make sure you head over to the Unity blog.

I’m breaking out the current kit of the month
Heart and Soul.

I’m using just the flowers and the ‘sharing in your sorrow’ sentiment.  I love making sets of cards like this.  The little bit of variance in the colors and layout makes it super quick and easy to create a lovely set.  I started out with the purple one first.  I’ve been using this row of twine thing quite a bit lately.  Love the clean and non-bulky look.


Next up, I moved on to this little pink one.  I’m trying to make more sympathy cards with more color.  The flowers are colored with two colors of Copics and the largest flower is popped up.

And last we have a little blue one.  I repeated the flowers along the bottom and masked the butterfly on all but the last one.  It is a bit hard to see, but the top has some scored lines as well.

Have you seen PINTREST???

This week we are sharing some fun Pintrest finds or inspiration.  This site is seriously addicting.  Be careful before you fall into the trap.  Time will disappear as you look through all the amazing photos.  It is full of fabulous ideas for decorating, crafting, hair styles, makeup, and fashion.  Sometimes, it makes me think I can do just about anything.  Ha.

But really, Pintrest just makes me hungry.
The FOOD pins are oh so tempting.  Here is one recipe I really want NEED to try.

    I love how you used color on sympathy cards, too. Super pretty cards, and I love the arch of the sentiment…it makes such a great frame for the flowers. I love Pinterest, too. My “Design Inspiration” board is getting way too big! 😉

    These cards are beautiful, Lisa! You made making sympathy cards look too easy. And, yes, those bars look delish! It’s probably why I stay away from Pinterest. 😉

    I am in love with these. I love how you make such fabulous cards with such seemingly small and simple images. The colours and the twine are perfect.

    And I think Pinterest will be to blame for rising obesity rates!!!

Your comments really make my day, thank you!
