Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop (and Unity FWF)


Not too long ago, my pal and Lawnscaping DT mate Britta Swiderski started a website called youngcraftersunite.com with another young crafter named Marie. They are both YOUNG crafters, age-wise and wanted to connect with other young crafters. They had the idea of having this blog hop and they even got some fun PRIZES so leave comments along the hop!

WHAT MAKES ME A YOUNG CRAFTER: Wow, isn't that a loaded question? I'm actually a relatively young crafter. I'm 28 which isn't THAT young but it's youngish. I also feel like I have a very young at heart attitude when it comes to crafting.

To START the hop go to the Young Crafters Unite Blog. You should be reaching my blog from Jillian Vance's blog. She's REALLY young, actually. She's 12 and oh so talented!

The theme for this blog hop is "My Favorite Things" and I struggled with this a lot since I have SO many favorite things especially when it comes to card making. I finally decided to go for a few things that I REALLY really love that are stand-bys for me all the time. First up, this color combo. Pink, black and white. Actually, I like black, white and any color. It's just easy and has a great impact. The second, Echo Park Paper. Ever since this company came out, I just love everything they've made! Third, one of my first stamp loves Unity Stamp Co. And lastly, one of my favorite things to make a card with a SKETCH. This sketch is for Jen over at Deconstructing Jen. And it's her sketch #8. I also used Copics to color, string, buttons and rhinestones...all favorites of mine.
Alright, off you go on your next stop which is the SUPER talented DANIELLE DAWS! Don't forget to comment! There's lots of awesome prizes!!!!

I'm also entering this in the Unity Friends With Flair link up. Please check out the Unity Blog to see all the people in that hop and comment there for prizes as well!
