Unity Thursday

Hello my friends. It is a JAM PACK Thursday with the Unity today. If you have been hopping along, you should be arriving from Joslyn’s blog, if not, all the action starts on the Unity blog.  Make sure you start at the Unity blog because it is FULL of today’s goings on… SALES, PRIZES, PROJECTS & FUN!!!

I’m excited to have a special release for this weekend.  It is an add on kit to my Everything series, introducing EVERYTHING MORE.

You’ll be able to find it in the NEW RELEASES on the website.

Also, I am excited to share this with you the Lasting Thoughts kit.  This was built by many of the Unity Artistas.  One quote from each of us to create ONE lovely kit.

Isn’t it pretty???  My quote is the “Good things are going to happen.”  It is one of my favorite sayings and it just needed to be a stamp.  Ready to see my card with it?


I love stars.  You can ever have enough of them.  The saying was stamped onto my card and then I used a star punch to create the pattern on the blue patterned paper.  To help the stars pop, I glued some newspaper patterned paper to the back and popped it up.

I’m also playing with November’s Kit of the Month.  I just love these kits.  ALL of these STAMPS for just $26!!!  It is an amazing steal.


I grabbed one of my favorite images from the kit… the feathers. Feathers are so trendy right now and these have a classic feel to them. They can go vintage or graphic. Still playing around with my papers and I love the mixture of the flower paper with the others. THIS paper pack has become a staple for me. I keep grabbing for it.

You have TWO options to grab this kit…

1. SIGN UP to be a kit member and you will always get your kit first and for $26. PLUS tons of great benefits.

2. Purchase this kit as a ONE TIME purchase when it first releases for only $26, but there are a limited number. So if you like it, grab it fast (like this one, it is already sold out).

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today. We’ll be giving away 2 prizes from comments left on the participating blogs. Here is a peek at this week’s CRAZY AMAZING prize.

That is all from me, let’s go visit Tracey next!!!!
