Hip Hop - Teacher's Gift + A Video Tutorial

Hip Hop!  Yes, it's Thursday again!  For a lot of you, school is just around the corner... or may already be in session... so, I thought I'd share a tutorial on how to make a super easy school-themed project.  I used one of August's Stampin Store Kits by Unity called Learning {Year by Year}.  The design team will be featuring this set (as well as the other Store Kit) this Saturday, so make sure to check back in to see more fun ideas!

Here are a couple of photos of the school-themed note pad I made.  I know these aren't 'new' to the stamping community, but it was the first time I've tried them out.  Michelle Wooderson makes them in every color and theme & really inspired me to try one out for myself. You can make several in one afternoon and have little gifts on hand for the entire year.  (The patterned paper is from the Show & Tell collection by We R Memory Keepers.  I purchased my notepads from Papertrey Ink.)


Here is a video I made for any of you who are visual learners like I am.  :)  (These videos are being featured on the Unity Blog today too.)  I had to break them up into two segments because I rattled on forever and a day.  ;)




I wanted to also let you know that there is a huge release party going on today for Ippity at Splitcoast!  The people at Unity sure know how to throw a party... so don't miss out!  :)
Also, I have a long list of stamps for sale on the post below.  Make sure to check it out if you like a good bargain.  :)

From here, hop on over to to Jen Erickson's blog!

  7. Julie these are incredible. SO many layers and patterns and elements! Your voice is so cute too, but NOTHING like I imagined. Isn't that funny how we "hear" someone's voice in our heads without really knowing them?!
