Unity Blog Hop March 2017!

We’re hopping today and the season of spring is {almost} here. Bunnies, flowers, and sentiments, OH MY!

I was in the mood for scrapbooking, so I pulled out a photo that was taken almost 23 years ago of my oldest two (who were my only two at the time), Brandi and Jake, and used it on this scrapbook page with Unity’s March 2017 Sentiment Kit.


Do you ever feel nostalgic when looking at a stamp from Unity? Well I have, did, and done with this cute little bunny from the sentiment kit this month.
Here’s a look at the kit along with a card made by Lisa Arana—It’s so freaking cool!

It’s just so cuddly and cute!!
I made some videos showing you some things I did on the above scrapbook layout. Sometimes I just like to sew stuff.

In the first video, I demonstrate using a zigzag stitch to add as an embellishment to stamping projects for scrapbooks, art journals, cards, etc.

Supplies Used for this Portion of the Scrapbook Layout
Unity Stamp Company's March 2017 Sentiment Kit
3 or more scrapbook papers, collage paper, etc.
Adhesive
Thread, scissors, and sewing machine


In the second video, I demonstrate using a sewing machine to add buttons to a stamped image to use as an embellishment to stamping projects for scrapbooks, art journals, cards, etc.

Supplies Used for this Portion of the Scrapbook Layout

Buttons
Adhesive
Thread, scissors, button foot, and sewing machine


In the final video, I put the scrapbook page together using items made in the previous two videos.

Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (with staples)
Cardstock, scrapbook papers, collage paper, ephemera, etc

What an adorable layout. I loved when I discovered using stamps in scrapbooking was another way to add pizzazz to a layout or make my own designer paper/background.
