Growing in Unity, Day by Day All Week Long!!


Have you heard of Unity Stamp Co? SURE you have especially if you have been visiting. The customer addicts of Unity have started Growing in Unity, Day by Day All Week Long, well it originated with the lovely Ramsey. Each week a Unity Addict has a turn at highlighting Unity all week long. It's sort of a blog hop were each week there will be a new person in the spotlight to show you some awesome Unity projects.

Soooo, let's get this Unity party started. I decided to try and work on more projects rather than cards for this week. I LOVE making cards but I also love using stamps to make gifts and home decor sort of items. To kick off the week I would like to show you a Christmas ornament I made. With two little kids who are 2 1/2 I know I can't have any breakables on the Christmas tree so hey why not make some right?

This little cutie is made using stocking shape made of out wood that I found at Michael's. They are perfect and only $.29! You can't beat that. I got a bunch so you may see more stocking ornaments soon! My background glitter papers are from a DCWV stack pack. The fabulous bird image is from Unity's Bird of a Feather kit. I colored with Copics and added Stickles, cut the cutie out and stuck him on the ornament. Then I had to punch a hole through this little piece of wood. SOOO, I finally busted out my big Crop-a-Dile II Big Bite. I got this gem for 1/2 off with a coupon at Michael's once and debated returning it. Then thought I'd try it out and it cut the wood like butter!! OH it's a keeper! And of course it has a long reach for scrapbook pages etc. Finally I used some velvet ribbon on top and Christmas rope like string through the hole and there you have it. A very simple but cute ornament for the holidays. I'm thinking some of these would make a great gift or gift topper!

While on the topic of Unity projects and this great Birds of a Feather kit I wanted to show you an oldie of mine. Something super cute I made a while back using the birds and some ceramic tiles. You may have seen my post with this magnet set but here it is again for those who missed it another great holiday gift.

If you are interested in the details on this project pls refer to this post or send me a mail I'd be happy to answer!

Thanks for stopping by!

Till later...
