Oh, Happy Day! {The Twinery}

Sometimes I think we get so caught up in life that we might just forget to stop and appreciate the fact that we've been given another day - and we just need to make the best of it!
I love the sentiment "Oh, Happy Day!" - it reminds me that there is something to celebrate in every. single. day.
I tried to keep the design of my card light and fun to echo that joyous feeling. 
And of course the Buttercream twine adds just the perfect little happy touch!

Go ahead and make this a happy day!

Mitten Mini Album

I combined two of Maya Road's coaster albums to create this Christmas mini album. It is a combination of chipboard pages and clear acrylic pages - and all together it creates a beautiful little spot for our Christmas pictures. 
I guess I should get those pictures printed, shouldn't I?

I used a non traditional color scheme here - black and white with a splash of green - and totally love the result.
Thanks for stopping by today!

ARTISTA Archives... {Unity Stamp Company}

My first images with Unity Stamp Company debuted back in June of 2012.

Since starting to design for Unity I've had over 45 individual images/sentiments plus an alphabet set put into production as stamps. Many of my images are in the Kit of the Month, S.M.A.K. Kit, or Stamp of the Week, but the ones that are in individual kits are now all together in my little corner of the Unity website - you can find it here.
