Friends of Unity Blog Hop - Designer's Choice

Welcome to our March Blog Hop with the Friends of Unity!!


I am SO excited for this month's edition of the hop with UNITY!

How excited??

This month, we have a pile of  pretty things for you! And - what makes it more exciting?? I am giving away crafty goodness up in here!

Be sure to check out every stop along the hop because there are some other fabulous giveaways  - so stop in, say hi, and comment along the way because you could win some awesome Unity of your own! 

This month we really got to show off - because our March Hop is all about what we love the most - Designer's Choice!

How do you choose just one?? How? Impossible!
I love so so many sets from Unity - and I have not just one...or two... but THREE choices to showcase this month! 
Ready?? Here we GO!

My first project is one of my very 1st kits  I purchased from Unity - called Angie's Tree.
I fell in love with it from the
 start - I have used this red rubber
 stamp over and over, and I could never
 part with it. Angie Blom designed
this stamp for Unity, and it is quite simply
 one of my favorite stamps ever.

I colored this up on watercolor paper and used my Zigs. It sounds super simple - and it was - just a touch of washi and my layers over a Crumb Cake card base and it was all it took to complete this design.

My second Designer's Choice project  features a kit from a Gracielle Design collaboration with Unity! 

This beautiful kit is called Spark - it features 4 beautiful sentiments and 2 lovely images - including this caterpillar. I love the feel to this set - it's all about metamorphosis and change - and change IS a beautiful thing!
I colored this with Zigs and watercolor paper again, opting for more washi and using some bright cardstock base in Lemon Lime Twist (SU!) and ran it through my Bigshot with the subtle texture folder from SU as well!

Stay with me!

My final project this month goes sideways real quick - its a little on the sassy side ;) 

Unity has a very ...secret underground society of gals who llike a little sass, a little snark... and the After Dark collection is something we talk about in hushed whispers with lady-like hands over our mouths.
Pffffttttttt... riiiight. I couldn't even type this with a straight face.

Who are we kidding - we all need a laugh now and then.
So these sassy little cards feature a couple sets from that side of Unity - I love them , and so do some of the girls in my life I love the most. They appreciate a little laugh every now and then - and I reach for these sets for "those" girls.

They have a great "vintage feel" and I use them all the time to brighten a sassy friends' day!

"Damn Girl" features some super fun sentiments !

I fussy cut this classy lady out and layered her on some creamy vanilla paper - that black lacy edger die is from Stampin Up!

And this itty bitty called Queen of The Universe  is a go-to for everything from Birthday's to Just Because - I love them all!

We want you to have a change to get your own Unity to add to your stash - I am giving away  two amazing prizes - just for visiting and commenting to let me know you were here to check out all of my favorites!

I will announce my winners on next month's Hop!
