GROWING IN UNITY, DAY 1

      I am really excited to once again be able to share some of my creations using one of my favorite products, Unity stamps.  I have joked with Angela that it is pretty sad when she has a sale and there is nothing for me to purchase since I already own it all. Although I don't actually own ALL of the Unity stamp sets, I have a HUGE collection.  So, this week I am excited to be featuring these wonderful stamps on my projects.
     My first project is a layout that will have some photos from our recent trip to San Diego.  I used paper from Carta Bella's collection, "Ahoy There" and Imaginisce's collection "Perfect Vacation".
The inks I used are Tim Holtz's distress inks and Ranger's Archival ink.  The bling I used is by Queen & Company and the ribbon is by May Arts.  I used Tim Holtz's tiny attacher to attach the ribbon to the ticket.  The stamps I used are from SMAK kits, which are one of my favorite products of Unity!!  "Love this day" is from the February 2014 kit, "Camera Ready".  The ticket is from the "Going Places" February 2013 kit.  The "Good Times" image behind the ticket is from the "Celebrate the Good Times" April 2013 kit.  

     One of the great things about having a stamp collection is the ability to create your own embellishments.  Instead of having to purchase expensive stickers and other embellishments, I was able to create my own.  I love that!   Stamps aren't just for making cards...they are great for creating embellishments for scrapbook layouts.  

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a prize from Unity.    So, comment every day for more chances and good luck.
