Unity Stamp Co. Weekly Giveaway!!!

Yay!!! I finally get to share this with you. I got to play with the Unity Stamp Company set, Butterfly Beauty which is going to be this week's giveaway set over on the USC blog. I have only had this set since Monday which is part of the reason that you all haven't seen me around here much this week. I have been playing with these awesome stamps. They are so much fun and I could create so much more with them...the ideas are flowing. There just aren't enough hours in the day for creating!!


I think that this is my favorite project out of the bunch, and the awesome thing about this project is that this is just straight, simple stamping...That's it! Incredibly easy. This is a covered journal. I used to make these all the time and then ended up with a surplus of them so I haven't done one in a while.

They are super easy to make using a cheap hardbound journal/sketch book (if anyone is interested in a tutorial on this, I could post one next week sometime...maybe Sunday. Just let me know. These make great gifts and done up like this are awesome gifts for girl's birthdays...this is one of my 13 yo DS's favorite gifts when he is going to a girl's party.

supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Company Butterfly Beauty kit
*Anna Griffin papers
*Chatterbox ribbon
*7gypsies handles
*Bazzill cardstock

This card is another straight-forward stamping example. I stamped the butterfly in brown (did you notice the detail in this one's wings? flowers! I love it!) and then colored in the details in orange. All these words are part of this stamp set too. I love the font and classic style of them.

supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Butterfly Beauty set
*Basic Grey Romani papers
*Rhonna Farrer paper
*Making Memories ribbon
*Jenni Bowlin label sticker
*Autumn Leaves buttons


A Vision of Beauty from Him
By adding just a few words in between the words of the set, I was able to create this perfect title for this layout. Most of you know that Kat wasn't planned...she is absolutely our perfect little gift from God. I haven't had time to do it yet, but soon I will add some journaling about that on this layout around the bottom photo.

There's a lot of dimension to this layout and for a while, I wasn't sure that it was going to work, but I really like the overall effect.

supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Butterfly Beauty kit
*Basic Grey LilyKate papers
*K&Co Amy Butler papers
*Foofala paper
*Prima flowers
*Zig writer


This is a 12x12 wall art piece for Kat's room. Her room is done in butterflies so this set was perfect to use in there. I simply decorated 3 large shipping tags and then mounted them onto some patterned papers and framed them into the shadow box.

supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Butterfly Beauty stamp set
*Anna Griffin papers
*Stacy Claire Boyd paper
*Heidi Swapp bling
*Autumn Leaves buttons
*7gypsies paper (music)
*dictionary paper
*shipping tags
*Making Memories and Prima flowers
*lace trim


Somehow this card ended up with a collage look, but I am not sure how it progressed to this point. This is one of those projects that simply evolved. I started with a white card base and stamped the edge of one of the butterfly wings all around the outside of it. I then inked up one of the butterflies in blue and rolled the edges into black. After I trimmed the paper, I applied a thin strip of adhesive around the edge and dipped it into well as adding it to the body of the butterfly. I like the mix of words on here to create "inspired possibilities"...a fun way of saying, hope.
