Unity Blog Hop

Welcome to the Unity Blog Hop.  Once again we have some fun New Releases so be sure to check out the inspiration today and then head on over to the website.

I am sad to say that this will be my last project with the Unity DT (for now).  It was a hard thing for me to do as I am sure all of you know how much I love my Unity!  However, I just have a lot going on in my life right now and squeaking out crafting time is difficult!  I am going to miss the DT as the team and Angela are amazing!

Anyhow, check out these cuties!  I have paired them up with some good ol' Echo Park paper.  I stamped the grid background using the 25 Days stamp set.  Then of course layered bits of paper and finally mounted the moose on foam squares for some dimension.

Now be sure to check out the website for the amazing releases and sales.

I am so happy to be participating in the Blog Hop and had a lot of fun playing with the Donna Salazar products.

I love to create out of the box type of gifts.
In this case I know some women who are going through chemotherapy right now so I created these with them in mind.
Little versatile pieces of artwork that could hang on clothespins like I have shown, adhere to a fridge (don't we all have a fridge full of artwork ;) ) or just in a bathroom to remind them everyday that they are strong and beautiful.

For both pennants I used one of my favorite MME collections (Cambridge Court) along with some Unity Stamps.  I have also used the fun Donna Salazar Pennant Set,and Lace Ribbons.  My go to adhesive when using products such as this is the Premium Double-Sided Tape.  I makes putting everything together so easy (note: you will see stitching but that is only for decoration, not needed :) )

First up is this pennant.  The title is cut with my Silhouette, which I love for titles.  

Can you guess what her purse is created with?
 Just stamped and cut it out.
Love the look of the fabric bag.

Next up a similar pennant.  I just love these colors mixed with the denim.
Now to create the die cut flower,
I mixed pattern paper with one of the denim panels from the Pennant Set.
Just one reason I still love my dies... so versatile!
I used some of the DODZ to adhere the flower pieces and buttons.

I had pieces of the denim left over so I just cut strips
and adhered under the sentiments.  
Love the added interest the denim adds to this project.

Products Used:

Pattern Paper: My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Unity
Dies: Papertrey Ink
My Rafflecopter comments will be open until August 7, 11:59pm Central Time

Unity Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the Unity Blog Hop.  Be sure to leave comments, you never know... you may be our next winner!

When I saw this week's releases I couldn't wait to play with them.  Such little cuties!  Of course they work very well for some invitations for my grand daughter's first birthday!  I kept them simple, adding some interest by paper piecing and mounting the little girls on foam squares.  The paper is from American Crafts.

Be sure to check out our sale, because what would Thursday be without a Unity sale?! :)

Boy Themed Cards on the MME Blog

I am up on the My Mind's Eye Blog today with a couple of birthday I created to add to my stash for the kiddos in my class.  I had fun with some new PTI dies and the Hello World collection.  I like how this travel themed paper worked for some boy themed cards.

The background die is from Simon Says but the rest are from PTI.  

Then I decided to give a go at a shaker box, haven't created one of those for awhile :)

What 6 year old wouldn't like some sequins in his/her card.

For more information please head on over to the MME Blog.

I was inspired by this month's Be Inspired challenge - can you guess which one inspired me?

Now there are some amazing new releases this week - I think I want need them all!  And of course to go along with it is a fabulous sale!  Click on the graphic to be taken to the store.

Stitched Fussy Cutting

It always amazes me what you can create with some paper, good scissors (I use the Micro Tip from CTMH) and foam squares.  Don't get me wrong, I love embellishments but sometimes I like to see what I can do with just paper...

Today I have created a couple of cards using the Stitched collection by American Crafts.  The flowered paper is what sold me.  I love flowers and those colors are so pretty!

Of course some stitching and foam squares for some interest.

Finally some die cut lettering (this one is a PTI die).

Thanks for stopping by.
