monday = h{ippity} hop blog hop....

it's time for some h{ippity} hop blog hopping...
thanks for stopping by!

this week's challenge is to create CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS with your {ippity} stamps, i was kind of on a roll with them last night and came up with a set of three of them....

i used the the martha stewart glue pad to ink up the snowflake stamp and then added RED GLITTER to it.
they are so SPARKLY & PRETTY!
i also used a different background stamp for each one...
gurnsey gingham
music of my heart background
dots for sure
and the SNOWFLAKE comes from season of joy!

ENJOY the rest of the HOP!


{ippity} fall 2010 collection RELEASE DAY!!

what an EXCITING WEEK it has been...
but TODAY is THE day!!
our NEWEST {ippity} COLLECTION is now officially
AVAILABLE for purchase from an

anglea has TONS of FUN details for you on the unity blog so be sure to head back that way if you didn't come from there...

i am going to get straight to my project today...

i decided to create a "surrender" box...
you write down your worries & desires and place them in the box for the universe to take care of {inspired by my dear friend eva!} COOL, huh! 
the new {ippity} kit here and now & the single gurnsey gingham were both PERFECT...
along with crate paper's restoration collection.  the background covering this tin is actually created from an old paper bag and then i stamped gurnsey gingham repeatedly all over it.

this is the top of the box...
i also used stamp images from the new sets sing a new song & cherish your dreams 

i made the cards to fill out to put INSIDE the box as well. this journal box from the kit "here and now" is simply perfect!  ...then i added the quotes from the new kit "sing a new song" since they were more fitting for this project.
these stamp sets are all so versatile...you can use your imagination and they'll fit perfectly for SO MANY PROJECTS.  i couldn't believe how EASILY this all came together for me...

my stamp set GIVE AWAY goes to 
 Wendy ten Hove
