Are you ready for the Unity Stamps Blog Hop ????


I am trilled to be apart of this blog hop with the GIU gals today!
We are going to have some great inspiration for you using the best stamps in the market!!

Today I have used two New stamp sets 
and

My daughter is getting married in May, and we have an upcoming shower for her in February. We are going to be playing games throughout the day and I have prizes to give out. I wanted to make some cute tags to put on the gifts. I immediately knew I had to use Unity. Her theme is natural greenery plants with some small flowers. So these two sets that I listed above were perfect. 
I distressed my tag with some blush colored inks ( her colors) and used the two stamp sets on the tag . I embossed them on the tag and then used zig brushes to color them in. 
As you will see , just because it says Journaling on the set doesn't mean you have to use them only for that purpose.. That is why I love Unity. You can use them in so many different ways.


I have the lineup below for you to continue with the hop today. 
Wynne Cochran Grob is your next stop  https://cropsscissorspaper.blogspot.com/



Don't forget to comment on each blog and the Unity blog post to have a chance at winning some goodies!!!! Enjoy your Sunday and God Bless.

Growing in Unity Day 5

Today I have one last project to show.. This too is a gift idea.. It is a grocery list note pad. If you are like me , I hate going grocery shopping.... but this little diddy makes it easy for me to know what I have to go get. I got legal size note pads at Staples and had them cut down in the middle to make two good size pads. I put a magnet on the back to hold it to the fridge. I altered the front with paper and used my Angie girl Rebecca on the front. This stamp set is called

Growing in Unity Day 4

Hello!!!! If you came here yesterday , then you saw the cute Christmas idea with tag. Well, today I have used the same {Oh Deer} Happy Holidays set to make two cards that I will use to

 hold gift cards inside. 

I used gold foil papers and added liquid effects to the nose and light bulbs on this cute fellow. I don't add a lot of embellishments on cards that I am going to mail out. So the shine from his nose and paper make up for the simple look. 


I hope you are having a wonderful time this Thanksgiving day to be with family and loved ones. May you be blessed with happiness through out this holiday season.

Growing in Unity Day 3

So glad you are back. Today I have a Christmas gift idea for teachers or friends.
I filled the jar up with manicure items, fingernail polish, polish remover, cotton balls, file, and clippers. Tied it up with twine and added a cute tag on the front using the 
{Oh Deer} Happy Holidays   stamp set.  A great inexpensive goody that every women will love.

Today I have another card for you. I have a thing about feathers... I think I have all the feather stamps that Unity offers... Don't judge.. hahaha...

I used the Wild Heart set for this card today. Added a sparkly gel pen to the feathers after I colored them for an added touch and some washi tape around the sentiment .

Hello sweet crafty friends. Today is my first day for Growing in Unity week. I'm so excited to share with you all the projects that I made using Unity stamps. I love this company. There is so much to choose from. I wish I had a bigger paycheck to get everything.. but I will enjoy what I do have and be happy. One day I hope that my hubby will surprise me with a KOTM subscription!!! A girl can dream..... 

Today I have for you a card that just screams cuteness...... Alfie -Heart and Soul Mouse had to come to my house when they released this stamp. As soon as he arrived I stamped him up so many times and made several cards to have on hand when I just want to pop a card in the mail to someone just to let them know I'm thinking of them. 

So what do you think... Isn't he adorable!!!

Growing in Unity Day 5

LAST DAY... I'm so sad!!!

Today is my last day as Growing in Unity Gal... It has been fun reading your comments. I hope that I have given you a desire to go purchase some of their stamps.

Today I have a card that went along with the mini album I made yesterday for a customer. 

When she saw the cute mini album, she wanted lots of cards made with the same stamp set. 
I had to make them simple cause she wanted so many of them and to help keep her cost down. 

Here is what I made for her. 



Again, I hope that you have enjoyed coming by to see my projects this week.

Growing in Unity Day 4

Thank for stopping by today on my Day 4 of Unity projects. 

Today I have for you a Mini Album that I made for a customer.

She is a Realtor and comes to me to make cards and albums for her clients that she closes a house with.
She wants them to be "house" themed. 


She uses these to put the signing papers and their keys inside with little notes to the buyer.
I used a manilla folder to fold and make into an accordion album with pockets. Covered it with paper that has little houses on it. I did some embossing and made tags for her to use for her notes.

Growing in Unity Day 3


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

-Oliver Holmes-

I have always loved this quote. So When I saw it on a Kit of the month I had to buy it. 



 Kit of the Month November 2014 set called What Lies Within Us . 
I made this card for my mom for her Mother's Day Card this year. She is a spectacular women whom is adored by all that get a chance to know her. She has been my rock through so much in my life and continues to be in her grandkids lives. 

So What lies with in you???? Something to ponder about today.... 

This is why I love Unity. This stamp set is going on two years old, but still can be used even today. The stamps never get out of style like some company stamps do.

Growing in Unity Day 2


Hello again. Are you ready for day 2 ??? 
Celebrate Life


I recently went to a hot air ballon festival. It was amazing. That outing inspired me to make a card using the Celebrate Life stamp set. They are in the Itty Bitty collection. I used my copic markers to add color to the ballons. I used some enamel dot liquids on the front to add dimension and a couple of layers. Added a tag with the sentiment that comes with the ballon stamp. And there you have an easy card. 




Here are some pics from the festival.


 Night glow show.


I hope to one day be able to ride in one. Its on my bucket list !!

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello sweet crafty friends. Today is my first day for Growing in Unity week. I'm so excited to share with you all the wonderful projects that I made using Unity stamps. I love this company. There is so much to choose from. I wish I had a bigger paycheck to get everything.. but I will enjoy what I do have and be happy.

Today I have for you a mini folder album that I made for a friend. She requested a beach theme. I knew exactly what Angie girl I wanted to use on this. My "Beach Girl" stamp. I used the girl on the back and the sentiment on the front for this folder. I also used an anchor from a grab bag I had purchased from Unity on the tags and inside the album.
I made the folder by watching a Youtube video .
