Believe in Yourself - Unity Stamp Company and Paper Issues special hop!

I've been so excited about this day!

The two of the teams that I belong to (Unity Stamp Company and Paper Issues)
 have joined together to bring you this amazing hop
 to celebrate Paper Issues's new theme in style!

I hope that you have gotten a lot of inspiration already, since I'm the second last stop.
You should be coming over from Stephanie's blog.


For my project today, I had the opportunity
to play with a special kit that the Paper Issues was releasing today,
just PERFECTLY put together for this theme.

It's a Breast Cancer awareness month, so of course, we HAD to have the color PINK,
and decided to broaden the topic a bit to make it into a 'Believe in Yourself' theme.

Paper Issue's NEW theme starts today til Nov 3rd -
so, go link up any projects to do with above!
(How perfect fit is that with Unity stamps!)

So pretty, isn't it?

It has papers from MME The Sweetest Thing Honey line,
with bits and pieces of twine, washi,
buttons, clothespins, chipboard, trinket pins...
 and primrose Color Shine from Heidi Swapp
(which by the way makes the prettiest glitter mist!)

If you're interested in this kit -
it's available over at Paper Issues for $14,
and if you use the coupon: modpaperie
remember that you can get EVERYTHING 20% off! :)

I also had the opportunity of playing more with my favorite stamps. 
There were so many that I wanted to use,
but decided to concentrate on Donna Downey stamps. 

She makes the most absolutely BEAUTIFUL stamps -
her inspirational words and her flower images are stunning.

So... putting all this together...

I decided to make a decor for my project. 
I thought that it would be cool if I made the word 'BELIEVE'
and had each corresponding inspirational words stamped on each letter.

Of course, for this, it was so perfect to use the 3D Letters from SVG Cuts
I sized it down all to 8" wide.

...and this is how it came out!

It's a perfect thing to have it sitting on your shelf
to remind yourself EVERY DAY how anything can be real...

if you BELIEVE :)

I get sidetracked when I start embellishing.

 (I know most of my projects are very detailed but...)

I LOVE SIMPLE...
minimalism...
I think less says more.

That's why I named it mod paperie! (lol...)

 So, I decided to stick with LESS,
and I think that
it worked well here!

I added 3 colors of thin washi tape on the sides of each letter...
I originally had it plain,
but it was just too simple, and the letters didn't seem to stand out.
I like this better... fits well with the color theme, too!

I used several stamp sets here... all donna downey.;)

Unity Stamp Company is having a SALE this weekend,
so it's time to get all you want!

  19. OH MY GOODNESS. I love this. Believe means so much to me that I have a white tattoo on the inside of my wrist of the word Believe, I have a metal plaque of the word over the door way in my craft room and I have a black wood standing of Believe in my bedroom. My hubby bought me the letters believe to mount to a wood strip and I love what you did so I may have to use your look as inspiration. Thanks so much for the awesome look. LOVE IT. Hugs
