Unity’s August Blog Hop!

What have you all been up to?! Crafty or otherwise?!
On my side, my school-age children were busy the first part of the month preparing for school, then getting used to school, and NOW . . . we’re all preparing for my hubby’s transition into retirement. We’re so happy to have him at home and see his handsome face, enjoy his jokes and whacky opinions, and just cuddle. He’s worked so very hard for the past 30 years and definitely deserves some down time. I can’t wait to see his transition. More about that next month . . .

Today we are hopping with Unity’s DT. Lots of NEW Phyllis Harris stamps are being released. I can’t wait to see what the DT does with them. I always enjoy Phyllis Harris stamped creations.

Here’s a peek at a couple of tags and a canvas I put together in the past month or so using a NEW ANGIE girl, last month’s kit of the month, SMAK kit, and Layers of Life kit.
I originally posted this up on the Unity Blog just the other day. It’s a chipboard tag using Angie’s NEW Shine Bright Girls set. The set was just released last week and I was so happy to play with it.

As you can see from the photo above, I used the girl on the left only.

Here’s a little peek at the entire glorious set.
Clicking on the set above will take you to the product’s page at Unity Stamp Company.

Here’s another chipboard tag I put together. This time I used an ANGIE girl from last month’s kit of the month.
The little eyeglasses were an afterthought embellishment that I printed and cut from basic cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. I adhered them with a tiny dab of glue. They really add a bit of dimension and whimsy. I might have to get some cat eye frames the next time I have an eye appointment.

Lastly is a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas using July’s Layers of Life kit, SMAK kit, and bits and pieces of some other past Unity kits from the past year. 

The reason I’ve got bits and pieces of past kits is because initially I started this little canvas months ago, got distracted, tired, or whatever the case may be, and I was not inspired to finish it until recently.
