FLIP FLOP HIP HOP Thursday - and a SNEEZE!

Good morning and good day!  If you're here for the UNITY FLIP FLOP HIP HOP  - WELCOME!

Today we are switching things up a little and the UNITY design team gets to work with IPPITY stamps and the IPPITY design team gets to work with UNITY stamps!  How is that for a flip flop?

So, when I went through Ippity's catalogue of yummy stamps, I felt drawn to Moon Beam & Heart Strings.  I immediately had a vision for a baby layout and you can see it below.  It turned out just as I had hoped AND took only about 30 minutes total!


Since I had my last little muffin in November 2009, I thought I should acquire this CUTE set for layouts.
This layout is entitled "SNEEZE".


If there is anything I've learned lately, it's about "being conscious of my color palette".  To make this QUICK layout, here is what you do:

 1. Stamp the moons and stars image repeatedly from left to right (make a line in pencil to keep you on track and to keep your line straight.)
2. Adhere the patterned paper (2 x 12 inch strips) with a stapler making folds.
3. Match Copic markers, color image.
4. Adhere stars, embellishments, title, and printed journaling.
5. Stamp "Welcome Little One" in the corner.


Did you know that a whole lot of chatting is going on?  Don't forget to join us at Splitcoast Stampers (in the Unity forum) for chatting and giveaways - these awesome stamp prizes just pop up when you least expect it!  You just need to be there to win them.

Now it's time to hop on over to Jessica's crafty blog... enjoy the rest of the FLIP FLOP!

And you still did all that in half an hour?? I must be Slowly McSnailpants, because that would've taken me at least an hour, if not two - and mine still wouldn't have come out as fabulous as yours.
