Holiday Hip Hop!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... well, not really... at least not here with 90 degree days. BUT there is one adorable Unity Christmas set releasing today so you can start your projects and cards early! Be sure and check the Unity Blog to start your blog hop and to see today's specials. Bright & Merry Winter Wishes is such a great set. I used it for a simple and easy gift idea: Christmas coasters!
I bought the tiles at Lowe's (less than .50 each), felt stickies from the dollar store or Wal-mart, and Stazon ink. Oh, and the pine bough is a Unity stamp I already had. Tie them up with some pretty ribbon and they are ready to give to a teacher, neighbor, or friend!

I also used Bright & Merry on this layout:


The other stamp I used is my "journaling box" from Something Within. I also used Kraft CS, Maya Road Mist, Kaisercraft Rhinstones, SU watercolor crayons, Lace tape from etsy, Baker's twine, and AC Remarks alpha. stickers (which I also stamped on).

I have had the best time as a guest designer for Unity this month - what an honor and privilege it has been! Stop back by my blog early next week for a few more projects and THANK YOU for visiting!
Now, hip hop on over to see the marvelous and incredibly talented

Love the coasters! And I LOVE the page too! I like how you stamped on the letters. At first I thought you had just used letters to not spray on the page and I was trying to figure out how you would then stamp on just the letters and not the page.
