Hip Hop Hangover...I don't want it to end!


Happy Friday! Happy Hip Hop Hangover!

It's quite melancholy knowing this is the final Hip Hop Hangover. Yes, I know Angela said Fridays will still remain the customer showcase day, but nonetheless, Hip Hop as we know and love it is coming to an end. Boo hoo. Plus, I love the name...here's hoping the new Friday showcase will have an equally adorable name!

I've made a few Unity offerings this week, but I'll start with the new one. I just realized I haven't made a card since the very beginning of August! It's wasn't that long ago but in terms of creating it seems AGES.



Nice and simple. I apologize for the dark nature of the pic. Hazard of indoor nighttime photography.

This card was going to include a bit of machine stitching on it but my machine decided to pout. I don't recall anything seeming wrong with it when I last shut it off but suddenly it won't go forward. Nice. It'll go backward fine, just not forward. If anyone has a suggestion for why it's doing this and/or how to fix it, PLEASE let me know!! I have 2 layouts in queue that were going to have machine stitching on them. I'm a little bit panicked. I might go into withdrawals if I can't fix it!

Update: The sewing machine mystery is solved!!! Thanks to a friend who suggested I should just make sure none of my settings looked "off". Somehow the darn bobbin winder was engaged and apparently that prevents the needle from moving forward. Whew!! Thanks Theresa!!

Details: Unity Stamp Co. stamp; Ranger Distress Ink; Making Memories journaling card; The Paper Co. paper; unknown ribbon.

Now onto the Unity Week In Review:

Aaaand, for those of you who may have missed them last week (*pout* my blog got left off the HHH list last week *pout*):







Hope you all have an AWESOME weekend ahead of you. We've got a jam-packed one full of playdates (for the kids AND the parents) and a couple of birthday parties.

Have fun on the rest of the hop!!

Heidi

Wow! Those are some amazing layouts!! I love the air balloon in white. The Old Skool layout is a total crack up with great colours. And I really, truly, love the I Adore You lo. I don't know that I would have been brave enough to layer that many stamps up in the corner, but it looks fantastic. Gorgeous.
