Growing in Unity - Day 2

Welcome back!!  Today I'll be sharing 2 projects with you!

Sometimes simplicity says it all.  This card was quick and easy to create, but says it all!  For this card I used the Jillibean Soup - Dutch Mustard Soup stamp set!  This set is definitely one of my "go-to" sets and rarely leaves my scrapbook desk.

Supplies: Unity Stamp Co: Dutch Mustard Soup; Lily Bee Designs: Happily Lost, Stationary; Lace, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Twine

My second project features my boyfriend of 7+ years Matt and myself.  This picture was taken in 2004 when our relationship was just beginning.  I used a 4x6 frame that I purchase from Target.  I decorated the photo prior to putting it in the frame.  I used the awesome City of Love Unity tamp set.

Supplies: Unity Stamp Co: City of Love, I Adore You; Teresa Collins: Posh; Lily Bee Designs: ABC Stickers

When Matt and I started dating he lived in New York City and I lived in Fargo.  These stamp set work so well together and were PERFECT for this photo!

Don't FORGET!  Leave a comment on one or all my blog posts for a chance to win a Unity Stamp set of your own this week!  And remember to check out the Unity Stamp Co. blog for even MORE inspiration using their wonderful stamps!

I love that you decorated the picture and then framed it rather than decorating the frame or putting the picture in a layout - very super cute!

DARLING!! Love both of these...I need to look at your blog more. I'm generally very stamp-challenged, even though I have TONS of them - I need better ideas!

I like how you added the city in the corner bottom, and I like the whole thing, actually.
