"Watch-Out Wednesday!" at Unity

First Official
"Watch-Out Wednesday" at Unity!
Featuring: Dawn Easton

My Design Team is on the LOOK OUT!
Look what they found! How Adorable is THIS!?

Created by Dawn Easton with Unity's "Giggle Grove".

We will be featuring NEW talent EVERY WEEK for "Watch-Out Wednesday". We have a central place that my 21 girls post their favorite finds from random Galleries, Websites and Blogs. So post your creations, for the chance to be featured on the Unity Blog!
Dawn is Splendid at her craft! Wouldn't you agree? Leave her a little {love} if you have a moment!
Dawn sent a little message:
Hi! My name is Dawn Easton and I was thrilled to be asked to showcase a couple of cards made with some of my newest stamps from Unity. This Giggle Grove set caught my eye INSTANTLY! I've been drooling over their stamps for awhile now and finally a couple of weeks ago, I took the plunge! I'm so happy I did! Not only was the customer service fabulous, the shipping was superb! They come packaged so nicely in little organza bags! Totally adorable! Quite often I'm reluctant to order outside of Canada because shipping can be so expensive but rates through Unity are wonderful and since I saved on shipping, I got to spend a little more ;) Who doesn't like that?! I'm looking forward to the release party Wednesday evening! I can't wait to see what my next order will be!!
My life is based on simple Inspiration. Words, Creations, People that move me. You know the feeling... you see or hear something BEAUTIFUL and you get this dose of INSTANT excitement, peace, joy {anything positive}.
In an effort to keep the feeling of JOY I have asked our "Watch-Out Wednesday" Features to share with us their FAVORITE Quote along with their amazing creations:
Dawn shared the following:
"Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight."
By Benjamin Franklin
I love that!

11 New Kits to be released!

Natalie is a stay-at-home mom to 4 children, son 14, daughter 12, son 8, and daughter 3.
A little about Natalie:
My children keep me busy and definitely make perfect scrapbooking material. My daughters and I often scrapbook together, my 3 year-old knows what inks and stamps are ok, and she even can work my to ATG!
I started scrapbooking just after my first child was born, and was introduced to stamping shortly after that. I've been hooked ever since. I try and do something paper related every day, even if it's just sitting at my table and looking at my stuff!!
I am so excited to be part of the Unity Stamps Design Team. The product is absolutely amazing! THANKS NATALIE!
In the first card is a BIG SNEAK PEEK! I am releasing 11 New Kits on Wednesday, June 25th and Natalie has made "Floral Fantastical" Come ALIVE! Thank you Natalie!

Feature FRIDAY! Unity's Showing off Linsey!

Linsey's got talent!
I asked her to create a special card for Unity's first official Feature Friday!

We are taking each Friday of the month to feature Unity's Guest DT Member. We are honored and happy to have Linsey with us. She is so very sweet and her creations are stellar.

Here is a little blurb from Linsey about the card.

"This card is special to me since I met my hubby on the 4th of July at Lake Tahoe 10 years ago. This was my inspiration for it. I omitted inking the faces of the owls to create their "backsides" (hehe) and have them watching the fireworks from their favorite love branch. I popped the owls and leaves up on pop dots for added dimension and put some Queen and Co. bling gems in sky too."

I adore this industry because there is so much meaning that lies within each creation. Without inspiration, creation is not possible. In an effort to find more out about the person behind the creation I have asked them to share one of their favorite quotes, stories, poems, or lyrics with us. I was not one bit surprise when I saw that Linsey picked one of my favorites from Maya Angelou.

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
Maya Angelou
Love that!

A little tiny REMINDER!
Unity will be releasing 11 brand new kits at their RELEASE PARTY on June 25th @ 8-10 p.m. Central!
Great Deals, Prizes and FUN is the plan for the Party!
Be sure to join us!

Annoucing some FUN ADDITIONS to Unity!

My design team is AMAZING! I started a conversation with all of them and by putting their ideas out in the open we have decided to do the following on the UNITY Blog!

Starting FRIDAY we will have Unity's Feature Friday. We will feature creations made by our guest designer for the month. This month we have adorable Linsey and she is going to submit some adorable projects to share with everyone at the Unity blog. We will showcase VISUAL and Mental inspiration. Check in this Friday and every Friday for UNITY'S Guest Designer FEATURE FRIDAY!

Next....We will have DT Tuesday. This will feature some never before seen creations by a DT member. You will learn a little about their creations as well as more inspiration...cause that is just the way I roll.

...and POST AWAY, because my entire DT is on the look out for that STAND OUT project each way to be SHOWCASED on Unity's Blog as the Best of the Week. This decision will be made by myself as well as the input of my DT Members. So post your Unity projects on your blogs - in the forums, everywhere for a chance to be SHOWCASED as Unity's Pick of the week!

I will email you privately prior to posting in order to get permission to SHOW YOU OFF!

Fun Stuff on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays! Looking forward to it tremendously!

Join us for the fun! Unity is looking for the best of the best to showcase. Create, Create, are amazing and we want to see it!

Unity Rubba Rack

This little guy was the fourth boy added to the Magnuson Clan. The moment he was born, I took one look at him and my heart leapt a million miles. The eyes staring back at me were the deepest of browns and took up half of his little face. He had so much hair on his little body, he most likely could have been mistaken for a small mammal. Laugh. Even the back of his ears had a soft covering. I told him that very moment "Your a boy, but nobody will believe it looking at you...." He was just so {pretty}. He has grown by leaps and bounds as it is now 6 years later. (see my personal blog for current photos) Those baby browns continue to melt me instantly, as they are located just on top of the cutest little freckled nose in existence. (I am his mother...I can think that :)
This page is in celebration of The Simple Scrapbook Challenge hosted by Christi Snow in the Unity Forum on Splitcoast. Take a peek, and join the fun!
I know you are all curious what name has been given to the new storage system created for our Unity Cassettes. Marsha emailed me personally. It simply said Rubba Rack.
So it is now officially called:
"Unity Rubba Rack"
All the names were adorable, but the Rubba Rack stuck instantly inside the walls of Unity. It is cute and simple...we like that.
Enjoy your Day!

Lack of planning on my part left me without Cassie this weekend! I take full responsibility as Friday was a CRAZY day at Unity, with unexpected meetings and visitors! I was not able to get all the information to my my designer till late in the day. With respect to Cassie and her weekend plans, I pushed my Mini's to Monday! My images did not get on my website till this morning! They are already flying out of here! I may have to add some more images SOON!
My apologies to those of you that continuously checked in for them on June 1st!
Retail Price: $15.00
Anyone else get a sunburn this weekend? My shoulders feel like someone is holding a torch on each side! I attempted 18 holes of golf. "Attempted" is the key word here! I played in highschool, but my skills have tarnished, well....pretty much rusted! My boys ages 10 & 13 played like pros! James shooting a 54 & Luke bringing it in at 53 on 9 holes. I was impressed, Sawyer (who's 5) on the other hand shot a 26 on hole number 9. He sure had fun playing that last hole, though!
With all the random specials that left Unity, there are some amazing pieces of work showing up at Splicoast in the gallery under keyword "Unity". I am consistently amazed at what people are doing with our stamps. We are working on more releases in the coming weeks! In the meantime take a close look at the sizes on my exisitng kits. You will be amazed and so VERY HAPPY when they show up on your doorstep!
Enjoy your Day!

Unity's First Official Guest Designer!

Maren's "Beauty Within" Card
Nothing short of Breathtaking!

My Design Team coordinator A.J. Otto suggested ever so sweetly that I really should think about welcoming Guest Designers each month at Unity, and instantly my mind went to Maren. I had been admiring her work diligently as she started posting completed Unity projects. Her "Beauty Within" card featured above absolutely took my breath away the moment I saw it. Her work is so clean, colorful and splendid and I am very honored to have her with us.
Thanks Maren!
Take a peek at Maren's Blog "Zany Not Crazy"and leave a comment there for her!
Unity's "Butterfly Beauty" kit will be given to one lucky visitor in celebration on Tuesday Morning!
