Thienly Azim - me!
So... first up - don't miss out on the GARAGE SALE!!!
TONS of stamps marked down, so I urge you to go check it out!
Secondly... are the new releases.
We have all kinds of NEW RELEASES - to please everyone!
Vintage, Sentiments, Cute...
...and I tried to sum it up all on one image so you can see it all!
Such a fun release, right?
I didn't have much time to play with the new release,
but did manage to make some!
Here's a one for Valentine's Day!
I used stamps from various kits for this.
The number tags that you see here stamped on canvas is the new one,
and the sentiment is from the December KOM,
the white tiny hearts on the frame and the heart circle is from Handmade Valentine's Tag Kit.
Did you know that the polaroid frame also comes from Unity?
I painted this frame and inked it with white hearts.
I also had a chance to work with the Vintage Passport,
and used the sentiment and the plane from the SMAK kit -
using Carta Bella's Well Traveled collection.
I cut off the cloud lines off of the plane stamp,
and made one with a black wire.
My next card is from the current SMAK:
The Echo Park Happy Days papers were perfect for this card,
as well as some of my washi tape!
(Route 66 and the sentiment is from SMAK)
...and now my last card...
is another cute Valentine's card, made with the perfect DARTBOARD file!
I didn't take a pic of the front, but the card actually closes to look like a dartboard cabinet!
The darts and the stamps are from the December KOM,
and I cut out another stamped image of the flight portion and bent it in half to made it 3D.
I hope that you liked my cards today!
PLEASE LEAVE SOME LOVE on the participating blogs for your chance
to win a 3 month MEMBERSHIP to the kit of YOUR CHOICE!!!
(now, that's a pretty darn good prize!)
...and now onto my little announcement...
Hoping that I don't disappoint you...
I am stepping down from the Unity Design Team.
This is going to be the last hop,
and will be making my last Stamp of the Week reminder post next Friday over at the Unity blog.
I have throughly enjoyed my time here being on this team -
it was one of the most amazing things that's happened to me.
I LOVE Angela and Chris...
and the whole Unity team.
Their soul is all beautiful and I'm honored to have had the chance to work with them.
I believe it was the BEST stamp company to design for!
However, my time has come,
and I'm feeling like I need to spread my wings in a different direction.
There are lots of different things (they are all still crafty!) that I want to try,
and I want to make time to do them.
I also want more time with family and friends.
As Angela told me -
sometimes you need to make a hard decision in order to go where you want to go.
That is so true.
I thank you for your support and love -
it's very very sad, and I'm feeling a bit sentimental about this,
but I'm also excited for the new change.
Thanks again, and hope that we can all continue to be friends and follow each other's work :)
PS. I will still try to occasionally make some posts so I don't have any crickets chirping here :)
