Welcome Mindy....

We are excited to have another
amazingly talented guest designer
join us for the month of April.
{and that is NO joke}
hee hee 

Say hello to...

My name is Mindy Baxter. I live in Southern California where I was born and raised. I’ve been with my hubby for 17 years and we have 3 children. I’ve been in the paper crafting industry for 8 years now. Coloring is my favorite part. I love to see an image I color come to life. I’ve recently gotten into Mixed Media. I love how everything always looks different! I’m the type of crafter that’s always adding more and always reaching for that extra embellishment. I love to sit and create, like many of you it’s my time to escape and relax. I also love and taught myself Graphic Design. I love to draw. I love pink! I love pretty, girly things. I enjoy blogging about my projects and being motivated by other crafters. I love meeting new people and sharing my creativity.
 Here is a sweet little sample of Mindy's style.

I can't wait to see what she has in store
for us all month long.

Please help me give a BIG, HAPPY welcome
to Mindy by leaving her some love.

Growing in Unity Wednesday

It's Growing in Unity Wednesday!  And this week Lynda is up sharing her wonderful Unity creations!

Meet Lynda:

Here is a little something about Lynda:

"Hi I’m Lynda Lindley and I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband of almost 21 years, two beautiful daughters, and one crazy dog!   I am so excited to be a Growing in Unity designer again this year!
I have been a paper crafter for as long as she can remember and a HUGE Unity fan since the company released their first images.  I was among those that collected their images in the brown organza bags and still have a collection of them in my craft studio!  

I am lucky to be a stay at home mom and am able to create and be crafty on a daily basis.  I just don't feel grounded unless my hands are creating something no matter what it is.   I am currently a staff writer for an online magazine and a member of a few other design teams.  I am known as the coloring lady at the karate dojo my girls attend and am found coloring almost anywhere; a lot of times in my car as my girls are active!  I am so excited to be the Growing in Unity guest designer this week!"

Here is a great card Lynda made this week:

Be sure to swing on by Lynda' blog each day this week for loads of inspiration and your chance to win some Unity goodies!

DT Tues has Friendship in the Air!

Happy Tuesday!
Andrea here with your weekly dose of DT inspiration
and to share what inspired me!

I started out with this month's Kit of the Month and this awesome saying.
I have a special group of friends that met at work and we have grown so close over the years
If I asked at a moment's notice they wouldn't hesitate to stand beside me no matter what I was doing
Stupid or not 
Many of them have birthday's coming in the next few month's so this card will come in handy!

Then I used our current challenge
You can find it over at Unity's 'Be Inspired' blog
For me I specifically focused on the colour challenge and card sketch 

I just stay away from that colour palette and that simple but fun card sketch!
Over at our 'Be Inspired' challenge blog you can also see what others have created
Lots of ways to get those creative juices flowing!

For this week's picks I went with this that showed some of my favourite things
In this case Fairies, pretty dresses and Candy
I'm a simple girl ;)
I chose this from FWF entries and the Unity 'Show & Tell' Facebook page

Time for a quote to wrap up this post!
Staying with my friendship theme
my quote this week sums up how blessed I am…

Easy Foiling with Unity + VIDEO

Hello Kit of the Month Monday! Rachel here with a foiled birthday card! You only have two more days to subscribe to the Kit of the Month and receive the gorgeous March kit! It's a beautiful kit and I especially love all the basic sentiments in this one.

The cupcake is foiled! And so are the stripes! This is the POOR CRAFTER'S WAY TO FOIL! I used the glue I had on hand and I share some very very handy tips and tricks to get a great foil every time with your Unity stamps. All the info is in my VIDEO so go watch it :)

I would love to see any of your foiled cards shared in the Unity Show and Tell Facebook group!

Make sure to grab the March KOTM before it's gone! All the details can be found here.

Make a wish - and Happy Birthday!

Good morning! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards - back again with my final guest designer post! It has been such a fun month for me - thank you so much for stopping by each week, and for the sweet comments you left me!

Today I'm sharing a couple cards I made using the "smooshing" technique! I basically used a few different ink colors, smooshed them on my nonstick mat, misted with water, swirled together a bit with my fingers to smooth the edges, then smooshed my cardstock in there and allowed to dry before adding my images and sentiments.

This first one, I used a soft color combo, then used Plenty of Pandas to add my image and sentiment. Oh how I love these sweet pandas! 

I added some pattern paper layers stitched together, some Glossy Accents and glitter, and a few sequins.

Next up - I went with a much bolder color combo:

I used this fun set that I just love, Far Better Things Ahead Grab Bag - LOVE the variety in this set!

Finished off by drawing a string in with a black pen, added a few wood veneer stars, and covered the balloon with Glossy Accents. Let me just tell you - that took FOREVER to dry! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today! Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!
