Fall Flair


Is it Friday yet? It’s just been one of those weeks, and setting down to stamp with some Unity lovin’ rubber was just what I needed.


I used the Weekend Sketch by Beate and a new Unity set called Simple Blessings. Love the distressed patterns in the pumpkins of this kit. For the first time in ages, I stamped my backgrounds. I’m gonna start using some of those backgrounders, again. I like that. 🙂 I pulled my colors from Dawn’s color combo of the week – The whole thing was easy peasy.  Hey, it was just like old times, I even used a sponge dauber.

The Unity set is available to retail stores only right now. You can find it at Paper Maniacs, celebrating their grand opening this week. Psst – they have the Unity September Store Kit of the Month, Everything Extraordinary there, too. Use the coupon GRAND15 to save 15%, and check out the great product selections.

Now, it’s time for me to go see what the other sketch girls cooked up. I’m in need of paper-therapy today, and they never disappoint. You can see them to:

Cambria Turnbow, Charmaine Ikach, Jenn Balcer, Laurie Schmidlin, Mary Jo AlbrightSharon Harnist and Beate Johns – enjoy!
