July HOP with Unity

WOW!  Can you believe that July is almost over?  Where has the summer gone?
Don't know about you, but I've been super-busy this summer and am certainly looking forward to stepping up my card-making time.
For this HOP, I thought I'd share some of my favorite cards made this month along with a couple of new ones.  Here's a look back on July.

SOTW-Truth Be Told

SOTW-Row of Poppies

Layers of Life-Be Yourself

Kit of the Month-Glittering Eyes

July Sentiment Kit-Let Your Wishes Fly

Don't forget that each time we HOP, we LOVE it when you leave each design team member some sweet encouragement.  Also, we pick 2 random commenters to receive a super Unity prize package.  They will be announced on Monday evening om the Unity blog.

Just follow the pretty faces below.

Unity June HOP

Hello all of you Unity fans.  It's the last Thursday in June and that means it's time for our monthly HOP.
I have a few cards for you today and hopefully they will inspire you to start/add to your Unity collection.
Here's one using a new release from the Woodland collection from a couple of weeks ago.  I think Angie Blom did an awesome job with her sets of four unique critters.  Here's mine using Woodland Deer.
Now for one of my very favorite (don't I always say that???) sentiment kits.  Living in Southern AZ, I ADORE these cacti and the sentiments say so much more than the usual hello, thank you, just for you, etc.  These will definitely round out your sentiment collection.  Here's a sample from Succulent Salutations.
Lastly I have probably the most CAS card I've ever made using the brand new edgy PMS Peggy kit.  Whether you've been through this or are anticipating it (yeah, right!) in the near or distant future, I can attest to the truth in the sentiments in this kit-LOL!
Just like every other week, there's a fantastic sale going on over the 4th of July{American} holiday weekend.  You have plenty of time to HOP and SHOP.  Remember, if you leave a comment on each blog (including the Unity blog) you have a great chance of winning a super-duper prize package.  Since Monday is a holiday, this blog hop's winners will be announced on Tuesday evening.

Good evening everyone.  It's the last Thursday of the month and time for the monthly HOP with the Unity Design Team.  AND time to say "HAPPY 8th BIRTHDAY" to Unity.
I'm super-excited for this week's release.  There are some stunning designs and some fun ones too!
First up I have a card using the April KOTM.  I know I've said it before, but these are just the BEST value around.  I've subscribed for about 4 years now and also purchased several from before I joined - just one of the huge perks of subscribing :)  You can get all details HERE.
Now I have one of this week's fun releases - I Like Donuts (by Angie Blom)
All of the new releases are on sale for an unbelievable price.  Just visit the WEB SITE for these deals and oh, so many more happening during the Unity birthday sale.

Unity March HOP

WOW!   The end of March already.  Let's move on to April with warmer weather.  That's just what I have for you today with 2 new cards giving you an early sneak peak of the April KOTM.  Both of these are "bird-themed" and just in time for some spring inspiration.

First up, this adorable little bird and sentiment.

Next, what says spring more than a nest full of eggs just waiting to greet the world?

I hope I've made you curious to see the April KOTM.  You'll have to wait to Friday to see the entire kit.  (OR if it's now Friday or later, I will have added the link to it HERE.)

Remember to visit each blog in the HOP and you'll have a chance to win one of 2 awesome Unity prize packages.

Happy Thursday everyone.  Welcome to this week's HOP!!!
What I have for you today is a card featuring the January KOTM and this kit (well, like all of them!) is a beauty.

Here's the complete kit and all the details on how to subscribe are HERE.

I'm also featuring a card posted in the Unity Show & Tell Group on Facebook.  Carly Pool used a gorgeous color combination and beautiful watercolor background to create this stunning card.

Now, the reason we're highlighting Unity friend cards from the Show & Tell Group this week is because Angela has some awesome news about challenges going forward.  It will all be happening in the group and we want everyone to sign up so you can participate.  We promise you'll love the new formats and you won't be disappointed in the frequency.

And here's the scoop on this week's sale!

You can still win a bunch of Unity goodness from this HOP.  All you have to do is visit each of the sweet faces below (and the Unity blog too!) and leave some encouraging words.  We will have 2 random winners picked and announced on Monday evening.
So, off you go.  HOP, then SHOP!

Hopping with Unity

Good evening everyone.  Kris here to HOP along with Unity.  We're bringing you a TON of fabulous new releases tonight - TRUST ME!!! - something for everyone.  I love so many of them, I didn't even know where to start with some samples.
First up we'll have some 'Lil Bunny Peeps from Tifany DeGough.  Isn't this just one of the most precious Itty Bitty sets you've ever seen?
Here's a totally different look with a graphic birthday set - Another Year Older from Joslyn Nielson.  I can never resist making a birthday card...they always come in handy.
Last I have for you the next in the series of "the cutest owl ever" - Love You This Much from Lisa Arana.  I went away from traditional coloring on this one and love how he turned out.
Now these are only three examples of the ELEVEN new kits and itty bittys releasing tonight.

One more thing making this release and HOP exciting...yesterday was Angela's birthday.  She's got an awesome markdown sale and a free gift for anyone spending $15.

With a new year new, comes change.  The link up with our HOP is gone.  We are going to continue giving away fabulous Unity prizes for 2 random commenters.  Just keep clicking on the sweet faces you see at the bottom of each girl's blog and the Unity blog too for you chance to be one of tonight's winners (announced on Monday evening).  Please don't be down about the link up.  Angela is cooking up all sorts of contests and surprises (for other chances to win) in the Unity Show & Tell Group on Facebook.  If you're not a member, just send a request and you'll be added right away.
