Just Hear Those Sleigh Bells Jingling... Hip Hop!


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

TODAY's THEME:
CHRISTMAS CARDS & LAYOUTS

Can you believe that it's December already?  It was lovely and snowing yesterday, not too cold, just right!  Only 23 more days until Christmas and you know what I have to do before then?

COOKIES!  Can you smell the vanilla?

I love the big round stamp that says 100% Certified Homemade.  I stamped it several times in red, and then in green.  I stamped one circle on PHOTO PAPER to get a nice clean image, then used my Spellbinders to cut it out, then placed it over the main image.


Again, stamping on photo paper, I stamped HOLIDAY MEMORIES in red, cut out, then placed on the layout.


I had lots of leftovers from my Up the Street kit, that I was able to make this cute tag to go along with my layout, and I was able to use the Webster's Pages letters from the kit as well to make my HOME BAKED title.


In case you want these stamp sets, below are the complete sets and the link to Unity's store.

Before I started designing with Unity, these stamps were on my list!  A must have for any BAKER who gived their treats out at Christmas.  I just find these so classy and versatile.
