Guest Designer Monday

It's Emily here with my final post as Guest Designer for Unity! Yup, today is the day. I'm extremely happy to have had this incredible opportunity to design for such an amazing company. These past two months have been insane but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Unity has given me so much and I'm very thankful for all the fans, followers and friends alike who have supported me and cheered me on! I'm not going to say goodbye because I'll be ever present in the Unity forums. I love Unity and that will never change!

Today, I have three special cards to share with you. This first one-layer card was made using the January Kit of the Month - To the Moon & Back and a sentiment from Melody Ross' She Did It Anyway.

My second card uses the background stamp Giving It All Meaning and the floral-text border from To the Moon & Back. In the centre is an image from the brand new Marah Johnson set Breathless. I used this frame twice last week without the sentiment in the centre and now you get to see it in its entirety! I stitched around the inner circle and filled it with shiny hearts.

This last card uses a couple of older Unity stamps, including one of my all-time favourites. One of the reasons why I rarely use patterned paper is that I love to create my own backgrounds and I reach for this damask stamp a lot. You can find it in the July 2010 Kit of the Month - Happily Ever After. I paired it with a sentiment from the September 2010 Kit of the Month - When I Am With You. As always, close up photos and complete source lists are on my blog.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Angela for welcoming me to the Unity family, to AJ for keeping me organized and to all the Unity and Ippity design team members for their constant inspiration and tips. I love you all!

Jimmi's Favorite Things Sunday!

Hi everyone...SO sorry I am late!
I had some stuff to do this morning and I didn't get up early enough to do this first!
But here I am!
With some super FABuolus cards using Unity stamps!


Here are just a handful of the gorgeousness in the gallery this week!


and how about today's gorgeous sneak peek???

Only another day to wait to see the whole kit!!!

I've had a few things on my mind this week that I just HAD to HAVE...
you could say I was obsessed.
But you can understand why when you see them!

The new Katy Perry for OPI shatter nail polish...HELLO???
I really just needed the black shatter top coat but I got the pretty silvery/green color today too!
Let me tell you what, I had to line up and wait outside at ULTA this morning
(yes that was my important errand, loL!)
There were a bunch of us crazy chicks trying to get our hands on it and I scored 3 of them!
one for me, one for a co-worker and one for my nail tech!
this stuff is HARD to find and they were sold out again when I left the store.

Another must have from this week is the new Smashbox In Bloom makeup line:
 and guess what???
if you sign up for Smashbox emails you get a coupon code for $15 off!!!
and they have free shipping on every order!
SO, needless to say the eyeshadow and a lipgloss are on their way to me!
I had to get the eyeliner at ULTA today since they were sold out online,
I can't wait til it gets here!
Oh they have some AMAZING video tutorials on their website, you HAVE to watch them!

hmm...what else?  Not much really.  Those were my obsessions for the week
and I am  happy to say they are both satisfied, I am a happy girl!

I hope you are HAPPY, too!
and having a FABULOUS day!

See ya next time!
