GIU Day 4

For my 4th Day as the Growing In Unity girl I picked one of my favorite Unity sets, Birthday Chic.   AND my sister who left last night started her birthday high up in the sky on an airplane!  Yes, today is her birthday!! Happy birthday, Berna!

I did some paper piecing & added a little bling. Unity stamps are so great, they do a lot of the work themselves! 



Reminder: 2 lucky persons who comment on my GIU posts this week will win 25 random stamps from Unity!!

Hope everyone is well!

UNITY GIU Day 3

Today is bitter-sweet for our family.  My younger sister is moving to Canada!! After a year's planning the day has finally arrived. (I'm from South Africa for those who don't know.)  So this is a BIG deal.  I'm so grateful for technology that shrunk the world that she'll always be a call or message away.

On to my Day 3 card for Unity's Growing In Unity!!

Let's take it easy today and wiggle our toes:


I stamped the sentiment and a black print of the flip flop image onto white cardstock. I then stamped three versions of the flip flops in different colours and cut them all out. They are popped up with foam tape onto the bottom print.
I've been waiting for the right time to use this pretty ribbon and the colours went together perfectly. Reminds me of sea breeze & waves.....

Reminder: 2 lucky persons who comment on my GIU posts this week will win 25 random stamps from Unity!!

Hugs to all

Unity GIU Day 2

It's day 2 of my week as Unity's Growing In Unity girl and I have a {sweet} one for you:


 This is so straight-forward it needs no explaining!  Just used my beloved Glossy Accents all over the glass jar and a few red liquid pearls.

TIP:  Use a positioning tool, like the Stamp-a-ma-jig, to get the placement of the {sweet} contents perfect.

Stamp set used: http://www.unitystampco.com/shop/jar-full-of-sweetness/

REMEMBER:  That I will pick 2 random winners from the comments this week to win 25 random stamps from Unity!! 

See you around tomorrow!

Unity GIU Girl Day 1

I know I haven't been on for a long time (but with good reason). But it was really helpful to be Unity's Growing In Unity girl because I got some art therapy in the process!!

So for a challenge to myself, I made a one-layer card with masking!


Unity Stamps Used:

Sentiment:  Basically Said
Round drawn circle:  Kit of the Month - July 2013
Leaves:  Kit of the Month - September 2013

I hope everyone is well and I'll be back again tomorrow!

Journal page: This too shall pass

When things get tough, I always remember my Dad's favorite quote:

 I made my first journal page to publish and I am happy how it turned out.
All papers from Prima Marketing "Time Travelers" (A4 pack).
Alphabet letters from Spellbinders

[Ecc 3:1-8 NKJV] 1 To everything [there is] a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: 2 A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck [what is] planted; 3 A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away; 7 A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; 8 A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.

Maybe this will also be an encouragement to someone out there.

Love
