A WICKED SWEET Blog Hop is CREEPIN’ up on the Farm!…

Hello there friends!

{{{IF YOU are looking for my HIP HOP post, it’s RIGHT below and it’s time for then JULY KOTM reveal!  WOO HOO! SCROLL DOWN NOW, UNITY PEEPS!  Thanks for bearing with me this week w/ all the double posting!}}}
Well, we’ve made it through a week of AMAZING previews…what do you guys think?   What better way to kick off RELEASE DAY than with a BLOG HOP?   Sound good?  We thought so!  
Thanks for sticking with us and today we are definitely making it worth your while!  Not ONLY can you shop til you drop RIGHT NOW at the TGF Store, Team Anya has a special Design Team blog hop for you today and ONE LUCKY WINNER will take home ALL THREE Rubber releases!  That’s Creeper Monday, Wednesday, and the NEW Oliver/Amelia set, “Journey”. 

For my card, I used the new CREEPER Wednesday stamp.  Seriously HOW WICKED SWEET is she?  I adore her and just had to give her some rad hair for today’s special occasion.   I used a loose version of the Scrapbooking Sketch being debuted at TGF today for my layout and that fun embellishment you see?  That’s Japanese WASHI TAPE and is NOW available at the TGF Store!

Be sure to stop by the CLUB ANYA & FRIENDS blog for the beginning of the hop if you’re just getting here now, and just in case you get lost, here’s the order:

The JOURNEY of a Lifetime…

Hey everybody…

{{{THANK YOU so, so much-beyond anything I can measure really-for scrolling down yet again today for another UNITY Sneak Peek-it’s a SWEET ONE!  I can’t tell you how crazy this week has been w/ two previews a day but your wonderful comments (esp on yesterday’s ‘cork’ topic, LOL! mean the WORLD to me!}}}

If someone had told me two years ago that I’d be doing what I do now.  Designing.  Consulting.  Loving EVERY PART of this stamping experience with The Greeting Farm and beyond, I’d have said “really?  ya think?”   I can’t even begin to tell you what a JOURNEY it has been.  A WONDERFUL ONE.  And it’s only just begun.  ( I SO did not want that to rhyme!  Couldn’t think of a better way to put it though ;)

I am pleased to reveal today’s sneak peek of an ADORABLE new set “Journey” featuring Oliver and Amelia.  This one means more to me for the simple fact that it makes me reflect on my journey w/ TGF and life’s journeys as well.

It really feel as if I’m RIGHT WHERE I SHOULD BE, but also know that we keep moving and I’m so looking forward to who and what I encounter next.   I am just LOVING it.  Love the right here-LOVE the right NOW  :)   Here is a card today, that I’m celebrating with:

Could Oliver seriously be ANY cuter??  I LOVE him!   I can’t wait for you to check out the Club Anya and Friends Blog today and also to see the previews of my wonderful teammates:


Today is my turn to host Wild Card Wednesday so here’s my hand-drawn sketch we used today to wrap up our month of WCW Sketches:


Tomorrow is release day.  LOTS of fun in store and a BLOG HOP with Club Anya and Friends with a FABULOUS prize!  Thanks for sticking with me!  LOVE it!

Another SWEET Sneak…

Hey sweet peeps!

I’m back with another fun sneak peek from the UNITY Kit of the Month for July…and that means there’s just ONE day left to wait!   That’s right!  TOMORROW IS JULY 1st!  Woo hoo!

Here’s today’s peek:

I found a SWEET embellishment to use on my card today from K&Co.  This chipboard “sweet” just says it all!  There are so many fun and versatile images from this new kit!  You are going to have a BLAST using it!  Here’s my finished card:

Seasons Change…

Thanks for coming back to see Sneak Peek #2 from UNITY Stamps!

{{{PLEASE scroll down to see my Greeting Farm preview today (you won’t BELIEVE what’s creepin’ up on the Farm! and for my MTSC Sketch-it’s SUCH a busy week on my blog-you guys have NO idea how thankful I am that you’re still w/ me!  ;) }}}

Ok, do you guys remember that Expose song titled the same?  Yikes…I’m having a bad early 90′s flashback, LOL!

Well, nothing is going to cure that better than this SERENE and versatile new stamp from the JULY Kit of the Month coming on THURSDAY from UNITY STAMP CO!  Here’s a peek:

And here’s what I created for you today:

I was growing VERY frustrated that I had not yet had the chance to play with cork.  Typical me reaction to something new-speaking of change, as sometimes I do not like it! Ok, that’s not true.  I ALWAYS  END UP liking it.  I just might drag my heels a bit.  So this is the Jess thought process on cork:

Week 1: Cork seen on cards.  Jess says “meh, don’t like it”.

Week 2:  Cork on cards.  Jess says “ok, that card is really cute. Still no likey.”

Week 3: Cork on cards.  Jess says “alright, who SELLS the cork.  At least I should KNOW THIS in case I might ‘NEED’ it for a project later?”

Week 4:  Jess says “what does this card need that it’s missing?”  Oh, right.  CORK.  The list just goes on from there.  it’s so easy to convince ourselves we don’t “NEED” the latest fun tool or trick in crafting, isn’t it?

Well, thanks to a VERY sweet gift voucher from my girl Kim at MFT, I was able to dabble.  So CORK it was :)  Seasons Change.  EMBELLIES change :)   Tastes change.  And so does my stubbornness to try new things :D  LOVE that!


That’s all for me today, but be sure to scroll down for my GREETING FARM preview and for Lots of important info.  SEE YOU TOMORROW for even MORE sneek peeks and previews!  Be sure to stop by the UNITY BLOG to see what the rest of the girls have been up to, too!
