Unity Thursday!!!

Hello friends!
It's hard to believe it's Thursday already and there's only one day left to go in May!
Where does the time go?

Today - there's NO NEW RELEASES...
(I'm sure your bank account and your hubby is relieved to hear that! lol.)
 so we've decided to put together a fun hop for you using our regular 'membership' stamps!
There IS a SALE though -
and will let you know in a bit!

You should be arriving here from Shemaine's blog!

and here's the rest for your reference!
Andrea Murdock -
Jen Erickson -
Jimmi Mayo -
Karen Maldonado -
Lisa Henke -
Robyn Weatherspoon -
Shemaine Smith -
Thienly Azim - YOU ARE HERE.

For those of you that are new to Unity -
there's FOUR memberships, and you can read all about them here:

All of these memberships ARE WORTH IT -
and I wouldn't be able to tell you which one I like the best as I would personally want them all!

Today - I've got a few projects to share with you -
the first one using the current KOM.

Father's Day is coming up and thought that it would be super cute to create a little 'tie' gift box!

Isn't this just so fun?
The TIE BOX is super fun and it's always so fun to embellish with Unity stamps!
I used the Echo Paper This & That collection (which I adore - just LOVE the color combo)

Excuse me for posting so many pics 
(especially ones without stamps) - 
but wanted to show you all the cute little details :)

 These glasses are PERFECT - just what I needed to give that 'accent' to the box.

The gentlemen in ties stamp is superb! 
I love it and there's so many fun ways to use this stamp!
For this - I thought that it would be cute to just color and frame the main guy -
make it look like he's the ONE.

Just been loving the 'stache accents lately.
(NOTE: Only on projects. 
I would absolutely HATE that if my hubby grew one!)

Isn't the sentiment the best?
Haha... I'm sure it's so true!

I love mix and matching stamps from different kits as well!

The March KOM and SMAK were designed to 'kinda' coordinate together
and focus on the chalkboard art.

I've never tried the chalkboard method that my crafty friends have been making, 
so thought that I'd make some frame tags!

Aren't they beautiful tags?
I'm actually thrilled with how pretty it looks and how simple it is to make!

Here's HOW:
I used a Canvas Corp Chalkboard cardstock, 
smeared a bit of white chalk onto it,
and then stamped it in white ink (I used pigment ink here)!

These would be so cute just clipped onto a ribbon on a gift!

or one could easily just make a card instead!

Would make a beautiful magnet board decor, too!

So... see how much fun you can have with these kits?
If you haven't yet and would like to sign up - 
see above for various membership links :)

Lastly, but not least, I had to make a card with one of the new releases from last week.

As soon as I saw this Do Not Bend stamp
I KNEW that this mailbox file would be the one!
(it's actually the same idea as my family's latest Christmas card), 
but still looks all cute done up in different papers and color scheme.
I used My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline papers :)

...and so, here's the sale deal.
