Hip Hop and Graphic 45!

I admit it, I've got an additction for designer paper. Just when I think I have enough and I tell myself not to buy anymore, I discover a new line that I love and that I must have. That's what happened this week. Unity and Ippity are working with Graphic 45 and I looooove the papers. We are I was not familiar with this company, but I am now and that makes me happy! I used this week's sketch challenge (HHSC15) for both projects I'm sharing today! Yes, I said, BOTH! I was inspired, I tell ya! First up my card.


I just love combining all my {ippity} stamps. I used a little bit from What Matter's Most, Season of Joy, and Now& Always. Holy, heck! Can you believe I didn't use any ribbon on this card. I tried, but it just wouldn't fit and I decided it was best since I'm sending this off in the mail.

Then as I finished this card, I looked down at my pile of new Graphic 45 dp and the green argyle, just screamed holiday to me. Maybe it is the stack of Christmas pictures from 2008 sitting there calling my name, too. Either way, I'm glad to have this simple Family Traditions page completed. Does anyone else HATE scrapping re-occuring events year after year? UGH! But I feel so compelled to make sure those pictures get in my albums, though. It's part of our story and I just can't leave it out. I used Season of Joy, and a Moment in Time on this one.

Maria is up next.
