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.

Unity’s July Blog Hop!

Warm enough for ya? I think we’re all feeling the heat now . . .

It’s JULY, baby! NOT my favorite month.

We’re all hopping along today with some new Unity kits and sales to help you stay COOL in your crafty space and keep you stamping through the heat.

I’m going to share a tag card I made today using a NEW stamp set by Susan Weckesser called Fairy Dust.

Below is a picture of the front of the tag card.


Here’s a picture of the tag card opened. For the sentiment on the inside, I used a sentiment stamp from this month’s Kit of the Month.


I LOVE buttons. Do you? They just add the right touch when you need them. I have a TON (at least).

Here’s a peek at the entire Fair Dust set. It’s so cute!


Here’s another shot of my tag card. You might be able to catch the glimmer on the wings and the word “SPRINKLE”.

Unity’s June Blog Hop!

Happy June!

We’re hopping along today with some new Unity kits and sales to help you celebrate the end of school, start of summer, and anything else we need to celebrate.

I’m going to share a tag I made today and a couple of tags I made last week for the Unity blog.


In the above tag, I used the flower from a new set released today, Prefer to Smile. It’s originally from a previous Kit of the Month, so I used that sized stamp to help make my tag. The sentiment is from this month’s Layers of Life kit and the beautiful background script is from this month’s SMAK. I get inspired by so many different Unity images and sentiments, it’s sometimes difficult for me to just use one kit or stamp set. Do you mix it up, too? I added just a bit of Wink of Stella to the flower and adhered it with some dimensional Zots to give it some dimension and interest.

Here’s a recap of the post I did last week on Unity’s blog--June 2:
Hey! Today is the official last day of school in our school district and me and my kiddos are looking forward to hanging out, eating, and just chilling for the summer. I think that’s what we do best this time of year. You got any plans for summer? Stamping I hope!
Today, I’m going to share a couple of tag cards I made using this month’s SMAK, KOM, and last month’s LOL kits. What’s a tag card? Well, I thought I’d put together some tags that had a portion of it’s design open up like a card to reveal another sentiment on the inside. Sometimes I just like to design new things to stamp on.

Here’s a look at one of them open.


And this is what it looks like from the front closed.


I did this by grouping and welding the tag shape with the shape you see on the front in my Silhouette Cameo’s software to create the tag card.

Here’s another one open.


And here is the same one from the front closed.


And here are both of the tag cards together.



What types of things do you like to stamp on besides tags and cards?  Please share with us. Sometimes we need something new to keep our stamping muse inspired.
