Hip Hop Wednesday? Bella Blvd? It's True!

Good morning and good day!  If you're here for the UNITY  BAG IT AND TAG IT  Hip Hop- WELCOME!  Because Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, we've switched Hip Hop day to TODAY!

Have you heard?  About the newest company that Unity has partnered with?  Wohoo! 
BELLA BLVD!  All the new stamps are up on the site - you can see them here!

SO, in honour of this new release, I have used the BELLA DOILIES on my HUGE 12x6 envelope.

I created this big envelope as a gift wrap for some jewelry that I made.  The paper was so beautiful, I couldn't cut it - I simply folded it in half, glued the side with my Glue Glider, and left the top open.  This piece of jewelry happens to match this paper beautifully and the doily stamps, stamped in a light colored pink ink are PERFECT!
"Undeniably You Envelope"



Look at how awesome these doilies look!  SO dainty in soft pink. SO shabby chic.  I used brads from MME in the center of each.

I used one of the doilies on the tag as well.

Here is a close up of the back (bottom).

Other Unity Stamps used on this project include UNDENIABLY YOU:

I made a tag for the necklace, and will have it peeking out of the envelope.

In case you missed it, here is a look at the NOVEMBER Kit of the Month  "Picture Perfect" by UNITY:

Unity will be donating $.50 cents of each sale to Unity's LOCAL FOODSHELF during the sale in response to being grateful for all they have given, and in recognition of how much need there is in their communities.  Thanks Angela and Chris for being SO thoughtful!

Now it's time to hop on over to Jessica's blog to see what beautiful project she has craeted for you...

Unity has teamed up with some of the best in the BIZ to bring you AWESOME stamp designs.  Have you been wanting to get your hands on them?  I know I have!  I am seriously loving the new Webster's Pages stamps, and I, like you, will have to wait a wee bit to get them - AS THEY ARE BRAND SPANKING NEW - and are being manufactured as we speak - and in time for Christmas!

All of these stamps are available on the Unity web-site for purchase.  See Unity's blog for more info related to the co-branded stamps.

Here is a spectacular list of Unity's co-branded lines:

Below are some of the projects I've made with some of these stamps.
