Unity Blog Hop 10.02.14!!!

It’s the second day of the month which means NEW kits at Unity! AND because it’s THURSDAY, there’s NEW releases, a SALE, and a Unity Blog Hop.

Let’s start hopping with some holiday card inspiration.

It’s just around the corner—literally. Don’t worry. Unity has lots of stamps to help you through this holiday card season.

Here’s a peek at four cards I put together in a matter of minutes. I used the NEW Kit of the Month with the NEW grab bags.

KOM Cards

I enlisted my Silhouette Cameo to make the card bases, scallop borders, and print-and-cut the Digital Project Life cards that served as the basis for my designs. Then I added the magic of Unity stamps with very little embellishing--just some fussy cutting (using my Silhouette Cameo), pearls, bling, twine, and glossy accents here and there. These designs can easily be mass produced.

happiest season of all

wishing you

spending the holidays

wishing joy

Below is a preview of this month’s Kit of the Month, Love & Joy for the Holidays. This is THE kit to have for the coming holiday season and for years to come. You can easily whip out some cards, holiday tags, ornaments, keepsakes, gifts—whatever your crafty heart desires to make.


Here’s a peek at the NEW grab bags that will compliment this kit PERFECTLY!



And maybe you’re just not yet ready for the Holiday Season that is rapidly approaching us NOW . . .

Unity has you covered there as well with a NEW set of phenomenal background stamps by Joslyn Nielson for ANY occasion.

create wish canvas

I used one of the new background stamps on the above 5-x-7-inch canvas. I printed a digital background (Dreamy Photos 14 by Nancie Rowe-Janitz available at onto white tissue paper using my printer and adhered it to the canvas using Faber-Castell Gel Medium. Then I did a little fussy cutting (with my Silhouette Cameo) and adhered some pearls to the butterfly. This literally took me just minutes to do.

For the Faber-Castell Hop, I prepared a video showing you how I print on tissue paper at home and how to adhere it to canvas to use as your background. It’s easy-peasy.

Here’s another look at that video in case you missed it.

This is the same process I used to adhere the above background to the canvas.

Here’s a peek at the NEW background stamps by Joslyn Nielson. They are marvelous! You NEED these . . .


Also, if you haven’t seen how I use my Silhouette Cameo with the Pixscan mat to help me with my fussy cutting, here’s a video I prepared a little while back.
