Time to HOP!

Good evening everyone and welcome to this week's HOP with Unity.
Angela is keeping it simple this week to allow you all to have time to play with the many new releases out over the last few weeks.  There is only one new kit releasing (it's possible to get it for FREE!) and a HUGE surprise discount for what you load into your shopping cart: i.e., you can make your own sale!

Now I thought this new kit was so cute and just right for making some gift card that's what I did.  Minimal coloring, a bit of snow at the bottom (using my Marvy Uchida Snow Marker), and a little baker's twine quick and easy!

Now for more fun stuff!  Since it's the HOP we always have give-aways.  There are two huge Unity prize packages - one for someone who leaves a comment on one of the blogs in the hop (don't forget to comment on the Unity blog too!) and one for someone who links up their Unity project and hops along with us.  YOU could be one of these winners :)

Just follow the links below...HOP...then SHOP!

Unity HOP and CHAT

Hello everyone!
It's Tuesday and time for Unity's HOP and CHAT.  There are tons of new releases (so cute!, you'll want them ALL).  I wish I'd had time to play with each and every one of them!
So here's what I have for you.  First up I'll feature the Penguin Pals designed by Lisa Arana.  These little guys are just too adorable!

Then (because I can NEVER resist a good underwear card!) here's one featuring another kit releasing from Lisa called Christmas Brief

Now don't forget there are lots of ways to win some awesome Unity stuff.  First up is actually following along with our blog hop.  Just leave a comment on each girl's blog and the Unity blog (see the sweet faces to link to below).  There are 2 random winners chosen from you!
Link up your Unity projects through Wednesday night (the linky close at midnight CDT) or leave some words of encouragement for those that do for a chance to win.
So there is a great sale this week. In addition to all of the new releases, EVERY single stamp released to-date in 2015 is on sale again.  SO, if you missed them before...get them NOW.

Good evening everyone and WELCOME to this week's HOP with UNITY.
The focus this week is on HOLIDAYS!  We all know that the busiest time of year for cardmakers (like me!) is just around the corner.  We're hoping to give you some inspiration to get those creative juices flowing for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and EEK! Christmas.  Just remember, we're not the first.  Hobby Lobby has had their Christmas stuff out since right after the 4th of July!

So here's what I have for you today.
 GOSH!  These moose are just so adorable!


I also have one other card featuring a non-holiday new release.  Though it's not really for a holiday, I just love this little gangster bird with one big attitude.

Remember that we're also having our Facebook Happy Hour CHAT tonight.
And don't forget to visit all the blogs in the HOP (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win one of two fabulous Unity prize packages.  Simply follow along with the sweet faces below.

NEW Unity HOP!

Hello there everyone, and WELCOME to the brand new Tuesday HOP and HAPPY HOUR with Unity.
I've been gone such a long time due to lots of changes in my life (my Father passed away almost 6 weeks ago) and I'm greeted by a HUGE shake up at Unity, starting with moving the HOP to Tuesday nights.  There will be other changes coming, but one thing at a time...LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!
There are a ton of new releases tonight and since everyone who is able to hop is doing so this week, you'll see lots of inspiration from the team's varying styles.
First up I've got a new itty-bitty by Angie Blom...Struggle and Strength
Next, I've used the new kit from both Lisa Arana and Angie Blom...Loving Today
Now for the rest of the story...
Be sure to visit the Unity Facebook page and chat it up with Angela and some of the design team.  There will be 2 main threads, one for CHAT and one for NEW RELEASE samples.  Look for the banners shown below and join in the fun.  We want to answer any questions you might have and we want you to participate.  Let's  make Unity even bigger and better than it already is (it is pretty darn special right now!).

Last, but certainly not least...complete the hop and then go SHOP!

And my second, with one of the new Phyllis Harris releases titled The Unknown Path.

Time to HOP!

Welcome Unity hoppers!  It's JUNE (EEK!) and time for some awesome new releases and a fabulous beginning of summer sale.
Trust me when I say that there is something for everyone this week.
I was so excited to see some of the new kits, that I have three (count them, 1...2...3!) cards for you today.
The first one features one of the three new Angie Girls - Jolande.  She is named for our very own DT member Jolande who has made a career out of the military in the Netherlands.

Next up is another in the series of Angie Blom's Whimsy girls. Isn't Bella CUTE?

Last, but certainly not least is a kit from Joslyn Nielson called She Used to Care.  Aren't those sentiments fabulous?
(YES!, that's my card on the banner.)
Now if you're new here, I must explain that hopping can have it's benefits.  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.  Look at this week's prize package.
All you need to do is click on the beautiful faces below.  They are the same on each blog in the hop.  Please leave a little extra love for one of our new design team members...Heather. This is her first HOP.  Her creativity is amazing.   When you're finished, head on over to the Unity site and shop.

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.
