Unity Blog Hop

I am so excited to be participating in my first Unity Blog Hop as a Design Team member!  You know I love my Unity!

For my project I dug out my A Perfect Summer collection by Echo Park because I thought it paired up nicely with this month's Kit of the Month (Spirit of Summertime) - I LOVE the sun, ship's wheel, bicycle...  I have also tied on my sentiment with a bit of Divine Twine so I am playing along with the Whisker Graphics challenge - Anything Goes



Isn't this an awesome kit?!!  Have you signed up for the KOTM yet?  Check it out here.


Then since I hadn't used my June SMAK kit yet I decided to play with it too.  Now the SMAK kits are so easy to use on my layouts and Project Life, I challenged myself to create a card with it, highlighting some of the fun stamps.  This one is really out of the box for me: lots of stamping, no pattern paper, few layers and no stitching!


Here is what the June SMAK kit looks like, LOVE the ink/paint splats!


Don’t forget to leave a comment on all the participating blogs.  Three random comments from various blogs (including this one) will be chosen to receive a $20 gift certificate to Unity stamps!!!


Now don't miss out, be sure to hop along and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you.

After hopping along you just may want to head on over to the Unity store as we are having a sale:
