a little grunge LOVE

HELLO HELLO & welcome to another FAB week of 
Unity INSPIRATION!

this week it's ALL about LOVE & HIP HOP! ;)

we have a VALENTINE's them goin' on, 
can you FEEL the love in the air? 

i am totally LOVIN' the MINT color craze....
so i KNEW my Valentine's this year needed to have a little MINT to them.


i don't have the actual MINT color that i love in ink for my stamps {yet!} so i had to add it in with my martha stewart acrylic craft paint.  the color here is BEACH GLASS {love it!}!

i have these little spools {tons of them!} & 
have been trying to figure out what to do with them.
so i painted them the same mint color - added some gold distressing paint & then
STAMPED Unity images onto pink TISSUE PAPER and than finally just modge podged them on.
^^^ the spools with HEARTS actually have LOVE NOTES written on the inside! ^^^
ohhhh la laaa ;)

^^^ EASY PEASY way to decorate ANY mason jar! ^^^

i used the stamp kit "a little grunge love" by susan weckesser - 
you can check it out online RIGHT HERE + any other "LOVE" stamp i could find! 
on the little spools i used the washi tape & LOVE stamp from Jars of Love

this is one of those kits that i LOVE having...so easy to use.  i have small tags that i had used from our wedding that i had just simply stamped the small heart in gold on them & had guests sign their names on them {pics to come of those in the future!}

i am going to KEEP YOU HOPPING, so
next up is our girl JEN!!!
love her & her FAB scrapbooking layouts...


ENJOY!!!
XOXO,
ERYN
