Welcome Erin McKinney! August Guest Designer at Unity

I am so happy to have you as part of Unity for August!
Last night Erin sent me her adorable little stationary project - a gift for her mother.

This adorable set of cards is made with Unity "Floral Fantastical". I think I even see some "Distressed Dots" in the background. I just love the fresh, bright colors that Erin has chosen. Adorable! Erin filled one of Unity's organza bags with sentiments for her mother to choose from according to what she is sending the card out for. Perfect. Such a great idea!

Here is another card layout to change them up a bit and add variety. I love how much thought Erin put into this gift. I am sure her mother will love it!


Here is the finished product. She has more adorable additions to the crate. Go to her BLOG to see what else her talented mind came up with. I think I may need to copy this idea in the very near FUTURE!
Hellooooooo?!
....Did someone mention UNITY BLOG CANDY?

LEAVE A COMMENT here {below}TO WELCOME ERIN!
For the CHANCE TO WIN....

I am very excited to see Erin join Unity as our August Guest Designer. She has a soft stunning simple style that is sure to inspire creativity from those who are visitors to her blog and gallery.
This industry continues to amaze me each and everyday. Talent everywhere - from the ones that are established and "stalked" daily to the ones that are rising to achieve well deserved recognition for their budding talent. I am blessed to have gals such as Erin who are willing to devote their time, energy and creativity to making Unity come alive.
THANK YOU ERIN! I look forward to your time with us!

UPDATES:

I biffed my blog post yesterday because I swear EVERYONE in the world placed an order with Unity in one evening! So...in an effort to maintain my customer service I was MIA {missing in action} all day. I will go BACK to the shipping department today and lend a helping hand for the remainder. If I don't get to your emails - please be patient....I will! So inside and outside of Unity will have to wait for a later date!
Bundle Special will run through Sunday Midnight.
NEW KIT OF THE MONTH is POSTED - Remember Happiness.... Jessica Rose is a new artist at Unity and she is AMAZING! Be sure to float on over to her blog and see her adorable work.
Shannan, Ana, and Lauren have opened up new space at Unity for fresh DT MEMBERS.
I haven't decided when I will fill those spaces, but soon I will be doing a call.
It is so wonderful that new opportunity has called their name...
I am so extremely happy that they are following their hearts and going the direction they feel they are lead! THANK YOU for being part of Unity. I have enjoyed having each one of you as part of the team.
As I stated in one of my posts at Splitcoast...
"That is the beauty of life...all the different paths it takes us on - and even if ours crossed for only moment all is perfect. I believe that 100%!"
Elizebeth was our amazing guest designer for July! Goodbye for now...LOVE, LOVE, LOVED having Elizebeth! A huge amount of appreciation goes out to you!
Scrap-a-Latte forum...Saturday Night! I will be there to CHAT! Join Us!

Back to the orders!
Please, Please, Please ENJOY YOUR DAY!
