Unity Blog Hop 05.21.15!

It’s Thursday and we’re hopping with Unity—new releases and a SALE—Yippee!!

Here’s a canvas I made using the NEW Textured Feelings set (with an image from May’s SMAK).

create everyday

The sentiment and background are from the NEW set and the butterfly is from May’s SMAK. I repeatedly stamped and overlapped one of the Textured Feelings stamps to make one big background for this 5-x-7-inch canvas.

Now onto a recent scrapbook page I put together using two stamps from this month’s KOTM, “Spread Your Wings”.

love laughter and happily ever after

It was a super quick and easy scrapbook layout to put together. This selfie picture was taken by my daughter, Brandi, when she and her boyfriend were soaking up some rays at Venice Beach this past April. I used one stamp from the kit for the title and the other stamp from the kit to embellish the layout by coloring and layering the stamped flowers and using pop dots here and there for dimension and interest. You can’t tell by the picture, but I added some Wink of Stella to the stamped flowers for some magic.

My final share will be a card I put together using both of the NEW patriotic-themed ANGIEgirls being released. I just couldn’t decide which one to use, so I designed my card to use both images.

Here’s a peek at the front.

Unity Blog Hop 05.07.15!

Welcome to this week’s blog hop. Yessiree--It’s Thursday and that means another Unity Blog Hop, NEW kits to create with for the month of May, AND an exciting sale you won’t want to miss! Let’s not forget there are prizes to be won for commenting our blogs.

First up is a tag I made using this month’s Kit of the Month, “Spread Your Wings” with a recently released ANGIEgirl, “KarenGirl”.

thanks for caring

For the past several months, my dad has been dealing with another hip fracture which can be very detrimental to man of his age. Well, anyone of any age, but especially for him as he’ll be 89 this year. We’ve really had the front row view of the healthcare industry and appreciate the time, care, and attitudes of the personnel we’ve had the pleasure to interact with. I think I’ll make a few more of these tags and enclose them with some well deserved goodies for some of our favorite health care workers and RN’s. They’re there for us when we need them and I want to show them we know it and appreciate them.

Here’s a peek at this month’s Kit of the Month.

And a peek at Karen Girl . . .

Next, I have a scrapbook layout I put together giving myself some well wishes and advice for my 44th year. I used a few Unity sentiments that were pulled from this month’s Kit of the Month and SMAK as well as from a couple of other Unity sets.

Birthday Bash Unity Blog Hop 04.23.15!

Congratulations and Happy Birthday to Unity. It’s been seven years—Wow! Here’s to many more to come.

We’re all celebrating hop style by showcasing some of Unity’s NEW releases along the way, giving you a chance to comment our blogs to win some Unity goodies, and Unity’s got an AMAZING sale, too.

Here’s a layout I put together showcasing a NEW stamp set by Donna Downey called “Loop Bloom Flowers”. I used these doodly-doo flowers to embellish around the photo strip.

The above pictures were taken photo-booth style on a trip my daughter and her boyfriend took to visit my son and his girlfriend recently. I’m pretty sure they all had a good time. They look so happy and carefree. Ahh . . . I fondly remember my twenties. Really.

I also used the NEW sentiment kit, “Bright Happy You”.

. . . AND April’s SMAK Kit, “Leave Ordinary Behind”.

LOOK at what else I made with this month’s SMAK!

Lately canvases have been my go-to when I’m in the mood to JUST create. I’ve got to figure out what to do with them as my collection is growing at leaps and bounds. Got any ideas?
