Seriously! I have been looking forward to this post for SOME time. A few weeks ago, we got word that a few new Unity goodies were on the way to the DT.
Much to my excitement, I opened the box and SQUEALED, of course....LOVE Donna DOWNEY! Not only did I get to experience that excitment, but now, today, YOU DO! TODAY there are THREE NEW RELEASES at UNITY!
That means I have THREE projects for you today. WOO HOO! The first one might be my fave. Have you ever heard the saying (I'm sure you have ;) "One man's trash is another man's treasure?" Well, it turns out that today, MY TRASH was MY TREASURE! A few days ago one of my little angels came careening through my stamp room and accidentally knocked down a picture frame. The glass broke, and even the frame cracked in the corner. I picked it up and set it on the top of the shelf so I could deal w/ it later and no one would get hurt.
Well, yesterday as I was brainstorming what to do with one of the AMAZING new stamps, I noticed I hadn't yet thrown it out so I went and grabbed it and was just about to throw it in the garbage, when WHAMMO! IDEA! Here is the finished product:
What do you guys think? I used a brand new Donna Downey single "TRUST", and added a chipboard element from Melody Ross's Homespun collection, using my new Chip Art tool, also by Melody, to bang out the word "HEART". You like? I LOVED creating this. The DP is by Webster's Pages, flowers by Prima. LOVE accidents!
My next project uses a new Wood-mounted Slide stamp. It's a single flower called "Delicate Flower". GORGEOUS. Just look at how BIG and BEAUTIFUL this wooden stamp is:
Isn't it pretty? You can use it with or without the UNITY HANDLES and let me tell you, "Trusting your Heart" and being a "Delicate Flower" were CERTAINLY the themes for me yesterday. My little baby is starting school in the fall and we registered her for a program that I have since become unsure about. So today we went and looked at a different school and they were so nice and caring and concerned toward us. Anyway, GOD IS GOOD. REALLY GOOD. I'll just leave it at that for now until I'm sure what's to come :) Here's my card using the "Delicate Flower" stamp:
What's that AWESOME sentiment on the card, you ask? That's the THIRD set being released today! A FULL set of stamps called "She Said". This is one of my FAVORITE sets to date. LOVE the sentiments, it's almost as if they were written for me! Well, at least I feel that way ;) That's all that counts, right?
I used more pretties from Webster's Pages, the DP and trims are both from there. Are you exhausted from my ramblings yet??? Hope not; I'm just SOOOO so excited!
So now what? What's next you ask? Well, if you've already checked out the UNITY BLOG, head over to my girl Jimmi's blog next for some more Donna Downey-inspired beauty!
See you on the SCS thread today? I'll be there uploading my pics (I am SO WAY behind) and chatting /w you guys! See ya soon!
Now GO. DESIGN the LIFE you LOVE.... I DID ;)
