[11.10.16] Unity Thursday

Happy THURSDAY! It is an evening and weekend of fun with the Unity design team. If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog. There’s always fun stuff going on. I have a bunch of projects to share with you. FIRST, I have this darling little card using a BRAND NEW kit released for BROWN THURSDAY (Unity’s version of Black Friday)… I Tolerate You.  I Tolerate You is all about this cute little bear and his bunny pal. Still perfect for holiday/winter cards, infact, I think I’ll do this one again and use a Happy …

[4.3.16] Assemble This! Sketch No. 3

Happy April friends… time to play with a new Assemble This Sketch.  It’s a pretty one and I’ll hope it will spark lots of inspiration. Lots of options again.  Something circular in the center… layered or not layered.  Up to you.  Then something on half of the card in the background.  I’m thinking either patterned paper, a background stamp or dry embossing.  These are just a few things that popped into my head.  Shall we see what happened? I decided to go for the gold with this sketch.  I’ve had this DCWV paper pad forever and I’m bound and determined to …

[3.6.2016] Assemble This! Sketch No. 2

Assemble This! Sketch No. 2 Ok, so were did February go?  I did not intend to go so long before the next sketch.  Yikes, the whole month got away from me.  So let’s kick March off with a bang and a sketch. This sketch is so full of possibility.  I’m just giving you the basic layers.  That big, white open box could be filled with so much or nothing at all.  That intrigues me with what you come up with.  You have free reign on sentiment placement.  It could be in that box, below the layers, popped up in tag or …

[1.31.2016] Assemble This! Sketch No. 1

Assemble This! Sketch No. 1 Hi!  So, I’m kinda excited about something.  For my long-time visitors, do you remember Wanna Sketch?  It has been on hiatus for quite a while… a year to be exact.  Well, I’m ready to play with sketches again!!!  They have been kinda absent from my crafty process this last year and I’ve come to realize how much I miss them and really love that part of my creative process.  So, I’m bringing them back, in a different way. I’d like to introduce you to Assemble This! Sketch!  I’m going to combine my two faves, a sketch, …

{5.25.2014} inlaid die cuts

Inlaid Die Cuts I’m using the brand new Need a Squeeze Stamp of the Week by Unity today.  I’ve been waiting to try out inlaid die cutting and this stamp was just the inspiration I needed to give it a go.  It takes a little planning, on how you want to layout your cuts and in what order.  I’ve started with a fairly basic layout to make it easy on myself.  I do love how it turned out though. I have an Assemble This! Tutorial video for today as well.  You can see how I used the different sized die …
