We pause this blog hopping for a good cleansing cry. The cards are lovely but the sentiment on the second card did me in. Yesterday was my dad's birthday. He's been gone for 3 years and I miss him terribly.

Greetings Unity friends!

I hope you are all having a nice, relaxing, but SAFE holiday weekend here in the States and throughout the world--maybe enjoying the weather outside or enjoying your crafty spaces.

Today, I'm sharing a couple of projects that showcase the May SMAK & LOL kits.

First up is a 5-x-7-inch canvas I put together using BOTH kits.

That’s a picture of my daughters, Brandi and Gwen. They’re both so different from each other. Both are continually growing and sharing their life experiences with us. Soon they’ll be traveling together to our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C. I can’t wait to scrap those pictures.

The flower, arrow, and sentiment are from the LOL Kit, “Find Your Happy”.

Clicking on the images below will take you to their subscription pages at Unity Stamp Company.

Those beautiful butterflies are from this month’s SMAK, “Sentimental Journey”.

Here’s a phenomenal scrapbook layout Angie Blom did with the SMAK Kit.

Every month, Unity fills these kits with amazing scrapbooking/mixed media and card making inspiration. You will always find a fantastic blend of images to create with over and over again.

Do you want to know more about how to get this in your mailbox every month? Click here to get your hands on this month's kits. Better hurry! The end of May is coming fast.

Happy Crafting!

Fishing Lodge Inspired Father's Day Cards

Good afternoon! Yesterday I had a CRAZY productive day of cardmaking - I managed to make 15 cards, and 8 Quick Tip Videos (would have been 9 if my memory card hadn't gotten full and quit in the middle of the last one! Haha!)

I especially had lots of fun with a couple of the new Father's Day sets from Unity - Best Fishes and Bonus Dad. They are a perfect set, and work so well together!

I found this image on Pinterest - and since guy cards are often a challenge - I thought this picture was perfect inspiration! I made a couple cards inspired by this photo:

I added some linen ribbon, jute twine, kraft paper with some white ink around the side, and some pattern paper from a Christmas paper pad that was perfect! A couple notches trimmed into the side of the front panel - using a small hand held whole punch - was the perfect finishing touch. This card is the one that was supposed to be a video showing how to do that, and didn't happen because my memory card got too full! :)

Here are those two sets - and both are on sale right now (along with a WHOLE bunch of other stuff!) for a great deal!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

Inspiration Wednesday with Angeline

Happy mid-week!
Angeline here to share with you a see through card I made using the latest Kit of the Month "A summer story".

Here's the quick tip VIDEO I made :)

I love this image from the KOM May 2016 and it's perfect as an ice blended on a hot summer's day!

Unity Stamp Company: Inspiration Wednesday with Angeline - See through card #unitystampco #scrappyscrappy #seethroughcard #vellum #stamp #stamping #kotm #summer #copic

I colored in the image using Copic markers and put it on some vellum - with some beautiful Gina K "Ang & Me" patterned paper. This technique works best with patterns that have a strong color/motif and that you would like to soften it slightly. 

And hey, it's cool to give your friend a see through card right? :)

My card was inspired by this beautiful photo of some flowers.

Design Team Tuesday

Hi Stamper friends!!

One thing that I have always tried to teach my kids is KINDNESS MATTERS.   I honestly feel like if  they can  learn that lesson than I have achieved something as their mother.   I am always saying kindness matters to them...so I figured it needed to be a stamp.   Sending a card to someone because they were kind to you is a beautiful thing!!  

you can find this stamp here.

Hope you all have an amazing week!

Love and kindness are never wasted.
They always make a difference.
They bless the one who receives them,
and they bless you, the giver.

Barbara de Angelis
