HIP HOP

Time for another Unity HOP!

Before I start, please let me say Happy Memorial Day (or, if you're old school...Happy Decoration Day!) to everyone viewing this from the states.

I LOVE patriotic holidays.  My hubby (a veteran himself) is usually glued to old war movies on TV (the ones he knows all the dialog to!!!) so I get lots of time to play.

Fortunately, I get to show you one of this week's new kits.  These came together so fast.  I just love when that happens.  The kit is called Stars & Stripes Forever and here it is along with what I came up with.


 
 
This weekend typically starts the summer season here in the USA, so we're keeping it simple with a few new releases and an awesome sale.
 
 
Remember, we have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway.  Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.  The winners will be announced Monday night on the Unity blog.
 
 
Now use the pretty faces below to link to the other blogs and then go shop.

Unity Hip Hop

 
May already???  The beginning of the month always means a brand new KOTM at Unity and my card today features just that.  It's a simple card with a die-cut background that features one image and one sentiment from this month's kit.  One color of distress ink and a few pearls on the dress and viola! I was done.
 
 
Here's the full kit.
 
 
Now for the fun stuff...what's happening at Unity this weekend?  After 2 weeks of our 7th birthday sale, we'll keep it simple this week.  BTW...you know when we do this, next week will be something awesome.

WOO! HOO!  It's just the beginning of Unity's 7th birthday bash.  We're getting this party started early with tons of new releases and  sale prices on most of the web site.

We have new kits broken out of several past KOTM's along with great new images.


We have brand new Angie Girls.


AND we have a %-off sale that also includes a brand new FREE stamp with every order.

 


 
 
I've have two cards for you today using new releases.  The first one uses a kit by Angie Blom called The Strength She Needs.
 
 
The kit used on the second one is by Joslyn Nielson and is called You Bing Me Joy (always love me some puns!).  I had to use the birthday sentiment because after all, this is a birthday party. 
 
 
So here's the scoop on how you could win an awesome Unity prize package.  Just comment on each blog in this hop (including the Unity blog) by following along with the sweet faces shown below.  Two random winners will be chosen and named on the Unity blog on Monday evening.  You could be one of the winners of this...

Hoppin with Unity

Good morning Unity friends.  I hope spring weather is hitting your part of the world.  Here in sunny Arizona it is supposed to be in the low 90's this weekend.  We already had our 2 weeks of spring :)

Unity is back strong this week with brand new releases and a super sale. 


http://www.unitystampco.com/product-category/huge-dot-sale/
 
 


One of the new releases today is a new kit by Angie Blom called Love of Friendships.  Friendship with my girlfriends (near and far) is one of the most important parts of my life.  I know I'm not perfect (ha!), but I do try to be a good friend to those I care about and this image certainly conveys the feeling I have for them.





The image is colored with chalk pastels and then fussy cut and popped up over a dark background.  I don't know why I opted for the staples on the sentiment except that I've been seeing them used a lot and thought I'd give it a try....a bit crooked, but that's OK!

So here's the scoop on the Unity Hop.  You should start on the Unity blog and then follow along from one sweet face to another.   Take the time to comment on each post as you go along and you could win one of two fabulous Unity prizes chosen by random.

 
Thanks again for visiting today.  You know the drill...hop!, then shop!

5 for 5 Easter Blog Event - Day 5


Hello and welcome to Day 5 of our new 5 for 5 Easter Blog Event! So sad that this is the last day because I've been inspired by the other designers all week long. Today’s theme is CLEAN and SIMPLE.

 



My final card of the week features only a sentiment.

























The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company - Everything Easter Kit (yeah, not the first time I've used it this week), some beautiful paper from My Mind's Eye, a couple of tag and flag dies, and some pretty little sequins.  Very clean & simple.

Thanks in advance for stopping by and don't forget to visit the others blogs for some inspiration to help you get ready for Easter.  Remember that some of the designers are giving prizes, so please visit the other blogs listed below.


Just want to say thank you again for joining us this week and I hope we inspired you just a little bit.

5 for 5 Easter Blog Event - Day 4


Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the 5 for 5 Easter Blog Event! The designers have really been knocking my socks off this week with their fabulous creations and I'm sure that today will be just as awesome.  Today’s theme is BASKETS!



Here's my card for today.




















I used an adorable new Lawn Fawn set - Eggstra Special Easter colored with Prismacolor pencils.  This is a very CAS card with the image and sentiment stamped directly on the card front and then one extra little egg stamped (with that cute smiley face, of course), cut out, and popped up.

Thanks in advance for stopping by and don't forget to visit the others blogs for some inspiration to help you get ready for Easter.  Some of the ladies are even offering prizes for comments.
