It's Thursday!!!! That Means it's Hip Hop Time!!!

Oh, yeah, oh yeah! Have we got a treat for you today!!!! I was super thrilled to find out today is the day of a new alphabet by Unity!!!! You are going to LOVE it! Before I get too excited, I hope you just arrived here from Wendy's blog. But if you are just getting started, be sure to start the Hip Hop back at Angela's blog (don't want you to miss out on any of the fun!!!).
I am an alphabet junkie! I've got a ton of alphas and I love to mix and match fonts and styles. Unity has a lot of alphabets AND this one is perfect! I know I'll use it over and over. Plus, it is like getting a little bonus when you purchase this kit, not only does it come with Upper and Lower (LOVE that!!) it ALSO includes 3 fun tag/frame elements. The letters fit perfectly inside!
The new kit is called Frame This Alpha.
I used it on 3 different projects today. First up is the layout I did of 2 of my little monkeys! I used all lower case on my title and then combined a few images from Everyday Adorable. I just love the little quote, " Children make you want to live life over again." Here's a close up of the actual alpha.
On these next two projects you get an idea of how the letters and the frames work together.
I used the miss you sentiment, omitting the I, from the July KOTM (oh, the flowers come from the kit, too!). I used the capital I from the alpha and stamped it inside the cute little scalloped circle (this one is my fave!). I punched it out using my yellow Marvy Scallop circle punch (I think it's the extra jumbo size). You can just use scissors to cut it out, too. Next up is a little pillow box pouch I made for one of my BFF's. Her birthday is today and I got her a Pandora bead, put it in the pouch and added her mongram to the ribbon. This time used the tag frame image. I was able to punch this one out using my Small Tag punch by SU.

Keep on hoppin', enjoy all the inspiration. I know there will be LOTS of it!

From here head on over to the Uber talented Heather B. Happy Hip Hoppin'! Hugs, Lisa
