Celebrate You

I needed to make a birthday card for a 70th birthday and of course I waited until the last minute and am also sick to top it off.  What's a girl to do?  Pull out my all time favorite go-to Unity stamp of course and the card practically makes itself!
The Donna Poppy stamp is probably my most inked stamp and is just gorgeous to play with and watercolor.  I paired it with a sentiment from the Everything Wonderful set and used some pretty glimmer mists after masking the flowers.  The sentiment is stamped on vellum.

Sharing for Friends with Flair today.  Gotta love Fridays and all of that lovely Unity inspiration!

Project Life 2014

Happy Friday, Friends with Flair and New Year!  Cause it's just been that long since I've blogged.  There's the meme I've seen going around FB and Pinterest that comes to mind, something like "Sorry I've been such a bad friend, I've been busy being an awesome mom."  I don't know that I'd use awesome, just busy and trying to do my very best and enjoy this special time.  My crafting and my blog have certainly been severely neglected.  I had some time last weekend when the in-laws took my two older children for the night and I got started on my 2014 Project Life album.  WooHoo!  Of course I am 3 months behind on my 2013 album but I will go back and get that when I have the time.  My goal is to stay on track with 2014 and catch up on 2013 little by little.  I love using my Unity stamps on my album and today I am sharing my album with you, here goes!

This is my title page, I love working on the title pages and it always takes me a long time of carefully picking and choosing just the right mixture of elements.  I used 4 Unity stamps on here and the cute heart button was a freebie with my last order!  I love all of the wonderful and inspirational quotes that Unity is always coming out with and there were some perfect ones for my family album.
Some close ups:

I wrote down the kits used but it's down in my craft space and I totally have a sleeping almost 7 month old on my lap and can't get it.  If I find the time I'll add it later.

Here is part of my first weeks layout.

I love Unity's SMAK kits and use them often on my layouts.  I really like to stamp directly on my photos with Staz-On ink too.

I have my second weeks layout finished but just didn't have time to photograph it.  I was taking these pics during lunchtime and almost had a little one spill milk all over my album, had to get it out of there quickly!

Thanks for hanging in there with me today.  I hope that I have time to visit all of your wonderful blogs and see what you've been doing with your Unity stamps too!  Have a wonderful weekend!
