giu (x2), day three

Welcome to day three of my Growing in Unity week -- if this is your first visit, be sure to go back to Monday's and Tuesday's posts as well -- remember, commenting all week can help you win a little Unity goodness of your own. :)

Once again, I have two projects for you made with my Counterfeit Kit (read a bit about that in Monday's post). First up, a layout about my awesome dad: 


He hates it when I take pictures of him while he's working, but I just love capturing a bit of his concentration. I used this set for a bit of subtle background stamping, and this itty bitty from Simple Stories for the month up in the corner.


This KOM went to work to make my little label (stamped on a FabRip and almost-successfully punched out). That little man was actually trimmed from a "packed-by" card that came in a Studio Calico order - I thought he was cute!



My journalling fit perfectly on the journalling spot stamp in this KOM

Next up, I have a card...but there are a couple of very special things about this particular card. Take a look:


Sure, I used a cute stamp from this KOM for the bees and a retired KOM for the sentiment, but if you look more closely at the lower half you'll see one of the special things -- I just got my very own Silhouette Cameo! This is the first project I've posted here using it...and I think I'm in love :). The honeycomb cut beautifully. Yum. You'll be seeing more projects using it soon.


But the way more special thing about this card is who it is for -- my sweet friend Lindsey over at Bashful Blogging! Happy Birthday, Linds...and sorry your card is gonna be a little late ;). I hope your day is great!

I hope the rest of you enjoy your day as well, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow for a bit more Unity fun!

Love that scrapbook page! I feel like we don't get to see nearly enough layouts from GIU ladies, and I really love it. Great card too! Love the honeycomb.

Love all the little details. I have that retired KOM too, and I love that sentiment - it can be used for so many occasions.

I am just getting started with stamping and am amazed at the number of ways you are able to use your stamps. It is so inspiring to me! Thank you for the chance to win the itty bitties!

The dad stamp goes so well with the what I know about you. Such a great layout!!

Lindsey said...

Eek! I love my birthday card already! I can't wait to see it in person! And I am going to feel so left behind without a Cameo. :D
And your layout is such a sweet tribute. Happy sigh.

The bee card is really cute. The flowers and honeycomb pattern are just perfect, and the blue background is the sky. So cute.

SHartl said...

I love that you made layouts for your posts because I am trying to use stamps more on my layouts and this is giving me great ideas!

Karen L said...

I have a lot of trouble journaling but that little journaling block would make it so much easier. Love the subject of your layout!

Jocelyn Olson said...

First on the card--love it! I love the hex cover plate and, of course, the bees. The dad image on your dad LO is hilarious! Is that part of the kit, too? I may have to check out this kit...

Emily Leiphart said...

Eeek, gorgeous card for Linds and of course your Dad must've loved the layout even if he hates you taking photos while he's working! It's a relatively CAS layout but with fantastic details.
