Stamp of the week reminder - {Rooster Weathervane}!


Hello Everyone!
It's Thienly here with my LAST post for Unity,
reminding you that there's only a couple of days left to sign up for the 
amazing ROOSTER WEATHERVANE!

I just love this one!
Very vintage and artsy!

 So here's my take on this stamp - 
I made a card using the Traditions collection from Carta Bella.

A cool thing about this stamp if you are a member 
is that the previous week had a sentiment about weather as well - 
which I used here.

Happy Friday!!!
It's Stephanie here with you again to start the day off with friends with flair.
I have been having so much fun with January KOTM. I made this card for a friend's birthday I hope she enjoys it.
There are so many amazing stamps in the kit and this cupcake is one of my favorites I had so much fun making this card. It's hard to see in this picture but I did some layering with the image a fun 3-d effect that I always enjoy adding to my cards.
You can check out the KOTM here.

Inspiration Wednesday



Hello Unity lovers,

Here is Jolande.
I'm back from the USA and full of ideas, 
but never enough the time; do you recognize that?.
Today is inspiration day and that's why I mentioned the CHA.. ..
.what an inspiration I got there!!



One of the ideas I used as inspiration on this layout, 
especially the mega-blooms as a resist on the left side.



I used a lot of old stamps, sayings and the dragonflies on the banner
 are from the KOTM and of course the mega-blooms kit http://unitystampco.com/shop/mega-blooms/.

I also get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest, the person who's invented Pinterest deserves an Oscar as far as I am concerned! :)
It's always a pleasure to find a creation Unity stamps. 
Look at this beauty!!! 


It's from Karen Dunbroek she had no boards on pinterest, but look at here blog

Growing in Unity Wednesday

Welcome to Growing in Unity!  

Before we get started with this week's GIU gal I think we should announce our winner from our first ever Growing in Unity blog hop!  Thanks to the girls who participated and to all those who hopped with us!  It's so much fun adding this new feature to GIU in 2014!

So our winner of the GIU BLOG HOP IS:  ANGIE! 
Congrats Angie!  Be sure to contact Kelli (kelli@unitystampco.com).


Now onto this week's GIU gal and that is Brittany!

Meet Brittany:



Here is something about Brittany:

"Hi! I'm Brittany and I'm really excited to be the Growing in Unity girl this week! I live in the freezing cold state of Minnesota. I'm currently a stay at home mom of a very crazy 7 year old son but am hoping to go back to school in September. I've crafted for just about as long as I can remember, but started paper crafting in 2006 after my son was born. Someone gave me a scrapbook kit that year for Christmas, I never imagined that I would get so addicted to playing with paper! I've only been stamping more than sentiments for about 2 years and discovered Unity just over a year ago, I got hooked really quick then! In addition to all forms of paper crafting, I loom knit, crochet, bead, draw and dabble in painting."

Check out the great card she made:


Be sure to swing on by Brittany's blog each day this week for great inspiration and for a chance to win some itty bitty's.

Till next week!

I {Absolutely Love} Unity

It's the season  of Love. 
Valentine's Day is right around the corner
and I couldn't help myself.

I used the
to create this 
layered stamp card. 


It was easy to do. 
I started with the tiny heart background 
and then added in the 
sentiments in 
the different colored inks.
The Grey, Pink, and Navy combo is 
a little bit unexpected
but I love how it turned out.

I also love that I get to share a few
gorgeous Unity finds
by YOU!!!

The bright colors on this one just
JUMPED out at me!
This card uses 

I always LOVE 
Heather's work. 

and then there is this cutie pie card....
Did you know about this stamp set?

This one's called 
It's Sherbert Day

Check out more of Jennifer's work.


Have a lovely Tuesday!
Stay warm!

Kit of the Month Monday.. Project Life Layout

Hello everyone, Angie Blom here to share with you how to add your Kit of the Month (KOM) stamp images to your Project Life card inserts..
I have been doing Project Life by Becky Higgins for 4 years now.. and this year I decided to
go forth and do the classic style of Project Life..
 But, I also wanted to use my Unity Stamp Company stamps to express myself
in this everyday pocket page way of documenting..
 
I always try to get ahead of my week and pre do my next weeks card inserts..
 This week I wanted to use my January 2014 Kit of the Month stamps..
you can always use the other stamps from Unity Stamp Company..
 and you will find that you can make your card inserts pop with these
fabulous images and sentiments.
Here is a look at my layout for this coming week..
I love doing colour themes.. this week I choose black and white.
( sorry for the glare of the plastic)
 
 

 this is the January 2014 Kit of the Month..
"be your own beautiful"
JANUARY-2014-KOM-BE-YOUR-OWN-KIND-OF-BEAUTIFUL
 
Here are the close up details of each page...
 
**Using the butterfly I added it to the middle of the (life is beautiful) Project Life card.
the heart border I added to the ( here & now) Project Life card , then some gold washi tape
on the top and bottom of it. so it blends in easily with the card insert.
 
 
**I stamped and coloured the dogwood flowers, using my Spellbinder die to get the desired shape
added it to my card with the Beauty surrounds you sentiment. I love how that turned out on the stripe background of this Project Life card.
the sentiment "never lose hope... " I added to a card that I made .


**The last detail was stamping out this fabulous background image placing it over the polka dotted PL card and adding the word washi tape.. I just love the look of this one as well...
 
 
You can sign up to become a member of the Kit of the Month here....
 
Visit our website today to check out all the great Garage Sale deals..
sale ends tonight 12 midnight CST.

Hugs,
Angie
