Unity’s Brown Thursday Hop 2016!

Hey! Do you smell turkey roasting? What?! I don’t. I smell Unity rubber which is red, not brown. Moving on.

I have LOTS to show you today! I’ve put together some sentiment cards and rolodex cards using Unity’s NEW stamps.

Let’s get started with my favorite thing to do—photo piecing and paper piecing AngieGirls! It really, really, really is my favorite technique to do with Angie Blom’s AngieGirls. I like to kid around and call them CammieGirls when I’m done. Because.


Can you see why? LOOK how cute I am! Seriously. Days like this I wish I would have had these stamps and mad skills back in high school yearbook {I could have been somebody}.

TIP: I can’t be amazing every single day, BUT I get daily inspiration from this Unity filled rolodex. Look for used Rolodex card holders at yard sales, thrift stores, your garage, your aunt’s house, etc. Then fill them with what inspires you most like Unity stamps, Unity quick tips and techniques, your FACE, memories, whatever! Have a few of them and place them around your house, office, and/or work place. I think the office or work place would be a great place to keep some crafted rolodex cards filled with Unity sentiments and images. Then when someone has a birthday, anniversary, bad day, etc., you could present them with something you made just for them, when THEY need it. They’d be fun to trade, too. DO IT!

Below is the card sitting on the rolodex card holder. So adorable!


Here’s a look at Angie’s set I used called Poppy Girl.


This kit is amazing!

TIP: You could separate the flowers if you wanted by fussy cutting them away and using them without the girl as an embellishment if you wanted. Use your imagination. They are beautiful.

Here’s another AngieGirl where I enthusiastically photo pieced my crazy face.


In real life, I would NEVER pose with this face, but as CammieGirl I totally did. Totally.

Here’s a peek at Missing You Girl kit.


So, those are the CammieGirls this time.

Now onto some fur babies!


OMG—so adorable, right? This is another one by Angie Blom called Lucky Dog Kit. You get BOTH fur babies in one kit.

Here’s a peek at that kit.


Here’s a few pictures of ALL three of the rolodex cards sitting on my rolodex together. It’s really coming together nicely and it’s great to get a giggle once in a while. If I can’t laugh at me, you can’t either. Go ahead. Laugh at me. I do every single day. Go nuts!




Tis the season for cardmaking! Here’s a few cards I made using Lisa Arana’s Full of Merry Kit.

TIP: Using a Silhouette machine’s Pixscan technology with Silhouette software, make a custom mat or frame for Unity’s sentiments (and images). Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy AND you won’t have to store all those dies. Seriously. That’s what I did for all the sentiments on the cards below.




Here’s another card where I used my Silhouette for a custom sentiment mat.


 I used the following kit on the above card by Angie Blom, Joy to Go Kit.


Here are all of my cards getting together and looking beautiful for this group photo. Cheese!

Wow. Your samples are really beautiful. How do you do the faces? I would love to try that. Also, I have a Cricut Explore and I can probably make frame die cuts as you do on the Silhouette. Will have to try and figure this out. I will be back to your blog. Gorgeous!!! Thank you for sharing.
