Unity's Brown Thursday 2017 Hop!


What have you all been up to lately?

It's been so long since we've hopped. I hope all is well with you. I'm HAPPY the season has changed to Fall and the time is back to normal--YES! It's my favorite time of year I think.

For the hop, I'm sharing a fold-over tag page I did for my li'l thrifted address book that's full of Unity goodness!




Here's a peek at the outside of the tag page.
This little book is getting filled QUICK!


I LOVE this sentiment! It really sings to my heart.

I used my Silhouette to help design this fold-over tag page for my stamping project and paper-pieced and colored the image with distress ink.

Here's a look at the stamp kit, Little Stuff, by Phyllis Harris.


I also put together a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas using last month's SMAK Kit.



First, I layered some distress paint on the canvas in the following colors: pumice stone, dusty concord, evergreen bough, pine needles, and scattered straw. While I waited for the distress paints to dry on the canvas, I carefully stamped the SMAK images onto tissue paper using jet black and stone gray Stazon inks and I let that dry just for a bit. It’s pretty quick actually. I printed a picture of a housing structure onto tissue paper and used my heat tool to dry it before cutting it out and adhering it to the canvas with the other layers of stamped tissue paper. These images were adhered to the canvas with gel medium and a lightly wet paint brush. Then I edged the canvas with picket fence distress ink and used a ruler with a copic multiliner to add an inky-looking border.

Unity’s September Blog Hop!

Today we are happily hopping with Unity’s DT. I can’t wait for you to see what the DT has made using lots of NEW Graciellie Design stamps! They’re beautiful, and I’m surely looking forward to see what YOU do with them.

Here’s a page I made for my thrifted mini address book using Sweet Tea Kitty.


Every day can be a chaotic mess and I NEED coffee just to wade through the simple things. I can’t imagine life without coffee.

To demonstrate some chaos on my little page, I used a black Copic Multi Liner to add a continuous squiggle and underlined the sentiment to give it some emphasis because coffee DOES help.

Here’s a peek at the entire stamp set.


The vintage feel of the kitty in the tea cup is fascinating! I love it.

Unity’s August Blog Hop!

What have you all been up to?! Crafty or otherwise?!
On my side, my school-age children were busy the first part of the month preparing for school, then getting used to school, and NOW . . . we’re all preparing for my hubby’s transition into retirement. We’re so happy to have him at home and see his handsome face, enjoy his jokes and whacky opinions, and just cuddle. He’s worked so very hard for the past 30 years and definitely deserves some down time. I can’t wait to see his transition. More about that next month . . .

Today we are hopping with Unity’s DT. Lots of NEW Phyllis Harris stamps are being released. I can’t wait to see what the DT does with them. I always enjoy Phyllis Harris stamped creations.

Here’s a peek at a couple of tags and a canvas I put together in the past month or so using a NEW ANGIE girl, last month’s kit of the month, SMAK kit, and Layers of Life kit.
I originally posted this up on the Unity Blog just the other day. It’s a chipboard tag using Angie’s NEW Shine Bright Girls set. The set was just released last week and I was so happy to play with it.

As you can see from the photo above, I used the girl on the left only.

Here’s a little peek at the entire glorious set.
Clicking on the set above will take you to the product’s page at Unity Stamp Company.

Here’s another chipboard tag I put together. This time I used an ANGIE girl from last month’s kit of the month.
The little eyeglasses were an afterthought embellishment that I printed and cut from basic cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. I adhered them with a tiny dab of glue. They really add a bit of dimension and whimsy. I might have to get some cat eye frames the next time I have an eye appointment.

Lastly is a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas using July’s Layers of Life kit, SMAK kit, and bits and pieces of some other past Unity kits from the past year. 

The reason I’ve got bits and pieces of past kits is because initially I started this little canvas months ago, got distracted, tired, or whatever the case may be, and I was not inspired to finish it until recently.
