Unity Friends with Flair Friday!

Unity Stamp Company


It's Friday again and time for Unity Friends With Flair. Be sure to swing by the Unity Blog today and see the list of the Unity Friends participating! You will have a chance to win a bunch of random Unity stamps if you find the FLAIR in a participating blog.

This week I didn't make a card I tried something different using a small wooden frame from IKEA. I used the Unity Set "SHE" (for the quote) and an old KOTM (the flower) from way back!


I painted the frame first using a white acrlyic as a base. The pink paint is Metallic Lumiere in Pearl Magenta. Pattern paper from Cosmo Cricket DeLovely and solid cardstocks from Gina K. The flowers are Prima's from Michaels.

At first I was not sure if it was "turning" out ok but I really like the end result. It turned out better than I expected. I love when that happens. My first project was going to be stamping on canvas. I had this small canvas painted cool and ready to go but could not for the life of me get a clear enough image on the canvas so I gave up! Well for now at least. :-) I know one of the Ippity chicks did this recently so I should go see if there were pointers.

Be sure to hop along to the Unity Blog and check out what the other Unity Friends came up with. Along the way be sure to look for the Friends with Flair Blinkie for a chance to win a bunch of Unity Stamps!!

I don't usually babble on and on but I have a few fun things to share:

So there are some fun things going on in Unity Friends land over in the SCS forum. A very long time ago well over a year now, Ramsey started what was called Growing in Unity. It was were Unity friends (addicts) share on their blog a Unity project a day for a week. It was so popular and kept going and going. Recently Ramsey got very busy personally and has turned over the organization of it to me. If you love Unity and are interested come to the GROWING IN UNITY THREAD to check it out.

Also in the Unity friends forum I have started up the Unity Addicts Challenges again a few weeks ago. This also started over a year ago and it went on for more than a year, then I took a break. Now I brought it back so each week I'm posting a new challenge. This week's challenge: Christmas In June.

That's it for now!


Thanks for stopping by!
