UNITY STAMPS GIU DAY FIVE DEC. 26

 
 
HERE WE ARE ON BOXING DAY.
I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday.
I have my last post as GIU gal.
 
 
 
Well I am moving on from WINTER. Today I am showing this layout for a break from the cold and snow.
I did some mixed media on the layout. The stamping was done first. I then moved on to inking and paste. The gumdrop embellishments were pony tail beads that I melted in the oven.
The film strip was an EK Success punch.
I used several stamps on the page. They were
VINTAGE TICKET, SMAK KITS August 2012, August 2013 and August 2014.
The stamps can be found here.
It has been a fun week as GIU gal. I do hope you found some ideas that you can use.
Thank you for all the comments this week. Check out on Monday to see if you were the winner of the two Itty Bitty's.

UNITY STAMPS DAY FOUR DEC.25

 
 
THE BEST OF THE SEASON
MERRY CHRISTMAS DAY
 
 
 
I am sure you are all enjoying Christmas Day with family and friends.
I was asked to be GIU gal this week so I am checking in on my blog. I AM with my family for CHRISTMAS.
Just catching a spare moment to monitor the blog.
This card was created with the following stamps.
Donna Downey HOLLY HOCKS and EMPOWERED WORDS.
I used Tim Holtz inks to create the background. I inked my craft mat and spritzed it with water. The cardstock was placed on top of the ink water combination. When I lifted it up, I got the marble affect. This technique is so much fun.
The scallop borders are a MFT die.
All the stamps can be found here on the UNITY website.
Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win 2 Itty Bitty's.

UNITY STAMPS GIU DAY 3 WED. DEC. 24

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE
 
 
 
MY layout here is with my darling Granddaughter ALYSSA last August at a FAIRYFEST in Hamilton. I went along and it was so much fun. We all loved it and of course there were lots of photos taken.  I didn't know which ones to use first.
I selected a pattern paper from my stash. It goes way back and I am not sure about the manufacturer. I only had ONE sheet and I didn't want to ruin it. I was a little tense until the layout was finished.
I stamped it with CANVAS WISHES first. I LOVE this set. I embossed the images with white embossing powder. These stamps are large and so much fun to work with. I also combined this set with WISH WITH YOUR HEART. The images were also embossed in white.
The fairy angel of course is SHE WAS A DAUGHTER stamp.
I did watercolouring on the dress along with paper piecing.
The photos were placed on the layout around all the stamped images. I used many other sets of stamps as well. They were
EMPOWERED WORDS, SIMPLE STORIES Generations,  SMAK KITS April 2013, May 2014 and June 2014.
The title and fairies were cut on the Cricut. I used Designer Calendar cartridge and A Child's Year.
All of the stamps can be found on the UNITY website. HERE
I hope that this layout inspires you in some way.
Have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends.
Leave a comment to win 2 Itty Bitty's of your choice.
 I hope you will find time to check out my blog this CHRISTMAS week.

UNITY STAMPS GIU DAY TWO DEC. 23

 
This is a card from one of my favourite Kits of Month July 2013.

I finished it off with the bling.
You can find this kit and others on the UNITY website. HERE
Just a reminder to leave a comment for a chance to win 2 Itty Bitty's of your choice.

UNITY STAMPS GIU DAY ONE DECEMBER 22

 
 
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE.
The big day will be here before we know it. This week will be a busy one for all of us.
I am the GROWING IN UNITY Gal this Christmas week.
I decided to post this layout first as it is a Christmas Day memory.
This is my daughter and me 41 years ago. It is fun to look back.
The photos are black and white as the colour was faded on the originals. I still treasure these pictures.
I have used the following UNITY STAMPS on the layout.
SMAK kits Feb. 2012, Oct. 2013, May 2014 and
Kit of month Oct. 2014.
You can find the kits on the Unity website. Here
The stamps are such great quality and the kits of the month my favourite. I have been using the stamps for several years and I am admitting I am addicted to them. I use them on cards and try to use them on all my layouts.
Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win 2 Itty Bittys of your choice.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS
