Unity Blog Hop Day!!!

Hello Unity peepers,

Thursday bloghopday !!
For today I show you two new workshops I've designed with Unity stamps.
This is a layout made with the BIG INSPIRATION BIG WORDS kit.

It's a dream layout and do you know why ???
 because it was a dream came true to go and visit Andrea and Angela :)

This is the tick-tack workshop, done with a cheap clock 

(I think you could find something like this in the Wallmart ).
The clock is about 12 inches high and it's really working.
The outsides are made with the Tim Hotlz mask and several Unity stamps.

And WOW there are new Donna Stamps, did not have the time to make something with them but I am sure this gone be my new favorite stamps ever!!!

Did you see the new challenge!!

White Stamping!

The DT have excelled themselves (again!) and come up with some fabulous ideas for you to share.
 This was my card!!

I used my own kit in combination with 
the new Like a snowflake sentiment kit!

You can see it's a perfect combination.

That's what I like most of my stamps.....

Last week was special for me, nervous whether my kit would be a success... 
and guess what IT IS!!!
I was also placed in a Dutch scrap and stamping magazine !!

Again PROUD!!! sometimes things fall together :)


Look what a great prize you can win when you leave a message on each blog.
