It was August, 2008 when I saw my first Unity stamps. It was less than a week before I placed my first order online. It was a doozy! Three kits and a background bundle. It was over $50, even on sale. By the end of October, I had a full set of handles, several other kits and individual stamps, and had just received my third Kit of the Month.
When asked if I was interested in running a challenge for the big birthday bash, of course I said yes. For a few minutes I was stumped on what my challenge would be and then it hit my over the head like a giant clue by four. Of course!! Go back to the very beginning and use those first stamps from when I fell in love with Unity.
I started with this set of scraplings, in honour of Tanis, who is the first person I ever saw make them. I've been meaning to make some for the longest time, and just hadn't had a reason. These adorable little stamps were perfect! Unfortunately, I think Lovin' From the Oven is now discontinued, though at least two of the sentiments are now in Mix Up of Cuteness. The dp is Basic Grey Nook & Pantry.
For this card, I pulled out the Deco Hound background. These fit into a D handle, or you can use them as is, which is what I usually do. I have the D handle, but I've also got really small hands, so unless I've got a large unmounted stamp, I don't usually use that one. My A & B handles, however, are grody to the max!! Love is Toxic also came to join the party, getting crumpled, inked, misted and further distressed, before getting the look I wanted.
I hope you've all enjoyed my little trip down memory lane. My challenge is up on the Unity forum at SCS. You have until May 5 - and there is a prize. It's a Unity/Cosmo Cricket package!! Check out the thread here and good luck!
